Family Photo Time, need your help!

It is about time for our annual family photos. Every year I get a little more obsessive about planning our outfits but this year I have a great excuse....it is the first time we can have Christopher in them....yay!! So now I have all of their outfits planned out but after today's excursion I have a new contender for my outfit. So what do you guys think....buffalo check that will match Jonas's button up (his is black and white too) and coordinate with Coopers sweater colors or Sunshine Peonies to be feminine with the yellow like in Jonas' undershirt and stripes like Cooper and Chase are wearing....decisions. decisions.

I love both options, but I think I'd go with the Peonies. It's feminine (but still coordinates well with everything else), and you're the lady of the house, so I'd go with that vibe. I can't wait to see what you choose! :) Kiki

I think both outfits are lovely, but the buffalo checks coordinates better with the other outfits, imo.

I vote for the buffalo check. I agree that it goes best with the other outfits.

I'm having family pics in a few weeks...would you like to plan our outfits too? :) You did such a fabulous job with yours!

Andrea said...

Definitely the buffalo check. It coordinates with the rest of the outfits a bit better; it's more fall while the peonies one is a bit too spring/summer.

Andi said...

I like both, but the buffalo check stands out way more visually imo and is much more Fall. The peonies are beautiful but seem so Spring-y to me.

I like the buffalo check shirt with the golden yellow skirt. I think it's super cute and coordinates well with the other outfits.

Lori said...

I'm such a fan of the buffalo check and yellow skirt. That gets my vote!

Cathy said...

I vote for the new one. It's all a nice Fall look. I'm not artistic - but it would be nice to dress up the new look w/more feminine jewelry? A balance to everything - maybe? Not sure....

I think the Buffalo Check goes with everyone else, but the flower is more feminine, and you are with all boys. Depends on the vibe you want. Indoor or Out?
What kind of jewelry will you add to the Buffalo?

Hey Beautiful--I suggest the ATL top here http://loveyourlifeandyourlooktoday.blogspot.com/2010/08/put-little-loft-love-in-your-heart.html
I think this top photographs beautifully--you could wear with orange/purple or black cardi and black pants! I say--MORE VIBRANT COLOR--than navy or white for you! smile

I would go with the gingham + ochre skirt for all of the same reasons mentioned above. It's also a more classic look which will look better in years to come when you're looking back on these photos.

I would go with the gingham as well, I do like the idea of dressing it up with some really pretty jewelry!

Great ensembles. It's nice to see some layering. I vote for the buffalo check all the way. The peony skirt says spring more than fall. Your guys all have fall outfits.

Sarah M. said...

I live in a house full of boys as well so I'd vote for the feminine Peonies outfit!

Suzy said...

I think that all of the outfits you have put together look terrific. But IMO when it comes to family photos, I guess I'm boring, but I prefer the unified look - like everyone in jeans or black or khaki pants, and similar color or themed tops. Then it's not busy and you can see the family faces the best. Just my favorite, family photos are always great! I'm hoping to get one of our family this Saturday when we attend a formal wedding on the beach! Hope the weather holds out!

Buffalo Check!!

So tough - I think the buffalo check works better with the other's outfits, but I love the idea of you wearing a floral since you are the girly girl and you need to represent...I know it doesn't help, but either one will be beautiful - I'd wear whichever one you feel most confident about yourself in!

Funny! We're doing our photos this weekend so I've been agonizing over the very same thing! I say go with the flower print skirt. Love the whole look for the fam though. CUTE!

Courtney said...

I vote for peonies because it goes with everyone but it adds more dimension and layer then the other outfit. If you went that way I might but one of the boys in a light khaki pant. But you also have to think about the decor in your. Does the peonies capture the essence of your home more or the check. Which one would you prefer seeing yourself in when you look at it each day? There are so many factors to think about :) love your blog!

Trainer Momma said...

Buffalo check all the way.

Jessica said...

For sure the buffalo check, it just works better with everyone else. And I love how the yellow skirt just pops. Agree with everyone to dress it up with some blingy jewelry though. Everyone's outfits are great and this will be such a lovely family pic!

Tara said...

I think the outfit with the black and white shirt looks best with the rest of the outfits. Both are really cute though!

Pamela said...

I like the first set of outfits more. Both are wonderfully styled, but something about that checkered shirt speaks to me. Hehe, I really enjoyed the pictures with the "natives." You are a brave brave woman (or rather, you're a mother, lol).

Hope you'll check out my new blog!

I think I would wear the floral just because it's more me, but I thin kthe buffalo check might match better with what your boys are wearing....either one will look fine!!

A very fashionable friend of mine, Chandra, had her family all in blue tops/sweaters and denim pants.
So you could do the navy buffalo with denim and the "boys" could do some variation of the blue top blue denim pant theme--her pics looked awesome!
