Here are a few awesome sets Leslie put together and some helpful tips from her!
“Mountain Charm – This holiday season is the perfect time to cozy up with your family near a warm fireplace. And what better way to hang out together, than in comfy, cozy clothes. Family photos don’t always have to be dressy for those holiday photos. Why not get your photos made in a casual wardrobe that is perfect for this chilly weather?
Cable knit sweaters, fur vests and boots all add texture and layers to your wardrobe for photos. I picked these outfits based on the mom’s patterned sweater and colored blue jeans. This set the tone for the others’ ensembles. Once I had her outfit picked, it was easy to coordinate but not match the other outfits. The little girl’s shirt picks up the rust color from the mom’s sweater and the blue from her jeans. The little boy’s flannel shirt is a perfect mixture of the same colors without perfectly matching them. Then to finish, I kept the Dad’s outfit simple and casual with beiges and browns. All together they make the perfect family wardrobe. And I can envision the perfect family photo on the porch of a beautiful mountain retreat!”
“For the past few years, I have sent out Christmas cards that are not your typical red and green! I love the options out there now with fun colors such as yellow and turquoise. They just happen to be two of my favorite colors so I love to incorporate them into mine and my families wardrobes whenever possible.
I know the holidays are upon us and most of you have already gotten your cards out. But if there are a few still looking for inspiration (maybe even for a photo for a Happy New Year card), think about pairing non-traditional colors to make a fun wardrobe for your entire family.
For this grouping, I started with the little girl’s dress. I loved that it was so bright and fun. I used the colors in the dress to coordinate with the mom’s turquoise dress. After that, I thought about the men and decided to go a little more muted on their color scheme. The gray worked as a perfect accent to the bold colors from the girls outfits. After this was all put together, I did a little card shopping and found these awesome cards that just so happen to go with this color scheme. The best thing about them, is that they really could be sent out any time of the year!”
“Every New Year’s I have high hopes of going to a fancy, dressy New Year’s Eve party and I fantasize about the beautiful clothes I am going to wear to ring in the New Year. However, I always end up in my jammies and asleep before the ball drops! What a party pooper!
But don’t let my normal attire of jammies deter you from dressing up and going out on the town! With the beautiful outfits I picked below, I almost want to throw my own party just to wear this sequin romper!!
The trick with dressing for New Year’s is to be festive but also comfortable. Let’s face it…it is a long night! So when I stumbled upon this sequin romper from French Connection, I knew it was the perfect thing! I chose the black one but it also comes in a bronze color. Both are fabulous. Pair it with tights, booties and some fun earrings and you are set!
For your date, it is best that he coordinate but not match. So I picked a purple check shirt to add some color to this duo and paired it with some charcoal pants and tie! If it is cold, you can always add a blazer and scarf!
Happy New Year!”
