Reader Request: Family Pictures
My good friend, Erin (whom you can all thank for encouraging me to start this blog), emailed me recently asking for some help,
We're getting family pics in a few weeks and I wanted to know how I should accessorize my outfit, or if I should choose a new outfit altogether ... I got the Shade striped scoop neck 3/4 sleeve with cuff in khaki and the poplin button skirt in off white. The lady at the store said I should add color with a long necklace and some strap-y sandals. I wanted your good taste to weigh-in on the issue. And, of course I'm a cheap-o, so I'm not into spending lots of $. I feel like I already spent too much on the shirt and skirt. Anyway, thanks for your help whenever you get the chance!
Family pictures are one of the most daunting fashion choices I can think of. What you wear will be documented forever. It freaks me out just as much as anyone else.
I looked around for a pair of shoes and accessories to help Erin make the most of her neutral backdrop:
Striped Scoop-Neck 3/4 Sleeve Cuff - Shade - $21.50
Poplin Button Skirt - Shade - $30.80 (Orig. $38.50)
Aqua Flower Necklace - Charlotte Russe - $8.99
Peep-Toe Wedges - Old Navy - $20.00 (Orig. $24.50)
TOTAL for Erin: $28.99
I thought it best to add a pop with the shoes and necklace. I think the accessories will easily mix and match with the rest of anyone's wardrobe.
Is this something you would wear? Any personal tips to share on wardrobe choices for family pictures?
Thanks for reading,
PS- Tomorrow I'll have a giveaway! Don't miss it!
