Family Holiday Attire

We had a lot going on this past weekend, part of which included a quick family photo session. My main goal was to get a shot for our Christmas cards, but I also like to update some framed family photos we have around our home. This year, I decided to go festive with our attire. I already had some partial outfits put together, so there were only a few things I needed to track down for the kids. I enjoy working everyone’s outfits together, but a family of five pushes me a bit. I can’t imagine what it’s like for those families that are larger than ours!

I’m guessing there are a number of you in my same boat, working together outfits for your families whether it be for photos, upcoming holiday parties, Christmas church services, or all of the above. I plan on getting as much wear as possible out of these outfits, for the kids especially!

Below are some boards that serve as a mix-and-match for ladies, gents, girls and boys. I did my best to select pieces that would work easily with one another in an attempt to provide a little inspiration in case anyone is struggling. I hope it helps!

Wrapped Up

I hope you all had a great Halloween! My football player and two little mermaids had a great time and carried their weight home in candy (scroll down for a visual). We also had a first for Madelyn yesterday when I went to help her put on her costume and noticed her first tooth missing! It had been loose for a while, but she had no idea it was gone. Our best guess is that it went down with some candy, but I’m off shortly to make sure that tooth fairy still shows up ;)

I have a few poncho’s/wraps in my closet that I love wearing every fall. I’ll often throw one over my outfit leaving it draped open, but sometimes I’ll throw on a cute belt with it to polish the look a little more. It doesn’t get much better than wrapping yourself up in a big blanket and calling it an outfit, does it??

Happy Halloween from this crazy crew!!
