What We Wore to Our Photo Shoot

A few years ago, I wrote a post about what to wear to a photo shoot.  Check it out!  I still consider it a good resource. The three of us had a photo shoot yesterday with Jade Elhers and his wife, Kaitlin.  They are busy people so I had plenty of time to think about what we'd all be wearing.  Deciding what two people should wear in a photo shoot is easy but once you add a third, I've found, dressing everyone to match (but not match) can get a little tough.  Especially when your kiddo has only hand-me-downs and the entire collection of Carter's Rock Star line.

I had no idea where to start!  I needed a theme or one piece of clothing to base everything else off.  Then, it hit me.  Dan mentioned a week or two ago that he wanted a black and white striped shirt, just like Elvis in Jail House Rock. Dan likes loves Elvis.


I scoured the internet and could not find him a black and white striped shirt FOR THE LIFE OF ME.  But!  I found one for BB!  I got him an Old Navy body suit for only $7.94.  Dan had just gotten a new, black cardigan from Forever 21 and new boots, from Aldo, for his birthday.  I knew we couldnt wear all black.  We needed at least one more color so I started to, again, scour the internet for a baby cardigan.  All the cardigans were for girls.  Until I remembered American Apparel, which was PERFECT because they only sell things in, like, 14 different colors so I knew I could get myself something to match!  Thus, the cranberry-colored cardigan for BB and cranberry-colored, high-waisted skirt for me.  I've had the tan and black striped shirt-dress since 2007.  I bought it at H&M in France but they're selling a very similar version of this shirt-dress RIGHT NOW at H&M in the states!  I also bought the Ralph Lauren varsity cardigan last year and I included it in my photos here but didnt actually end up wearing it in any of Jade and Kaitlin's photos.

Sadly, Dan didnt get to wear an Elvis shirt but he has a nice, tan and black plaid shirt that I think he's had for at least 7 years.  So, you know he likes it a lot.  And, it complemented my shirt!  Win win.

So, there you have it!  Black, stripes, tan, cranberry, dressed up but comfortable.  That's our theme, if I had to put it into words.  We looked awesome, if I do say so myself.  I cant wait to share the photos with you!

Oh, hi!


  1. I don't doubt for a second that you all looked smashing. Can't wait to see the pics!

  2. Cuuute! Love the stripes, you can't go wrong. Also read that as Dan had a nice tan...and a black plaid shirt. Took me a bit ;)

    1. If it was August, I could say Dan has a nice tan but not this time of year! :)
