Over the course of our business— we have found the thing clients stress over the most is outfit choices! We get it—you want everyone to look their best and we can definitely appreciate a good outfit!

Please stop stressing... this is MEANT to be fun!


HERE ARE SOME OF OUR FAVORITE STYLE TIPS

and some of my favorite side commentary

1. YOU DON'T NEED TO MATCH TO BE RELATED.

Seriously, no joke. This is not the 80's... go crazy and have fun! Think of Olan Mills... and then think the exact opposite. THE ENTIRE FAMILY IN WHITE BUTTON UPS AND BLUE JEANS IS BEST LEFT IN THE 90'S.

1B.  ... but YOU STILL WANNA COORDINATE.

NOTHING MAKES ME MORE SAD THAN WHEN THE ENTIRE FAMILY IS COORDINATING AND LOOKING GOOD WITH THEIR NEUTRAL COLORS, AWESOME LAYERS, HEAD TO TOE... AND THEN FOR SOME REASON THE ONLY GIRL IN THE FAMILY IS IN A BRIGHT NEON OUTFIT. TALK ABOUT A SORE THUMB.

2. DON'T EVER WEAR CLOTHES WITH WORDS.

The people who love your kids, more than likely know their name, their age, and their position in the family... they don’t need pictures of them in a shirt that says Billy, 5, big brother. THINK OF IT LIKE THIS, YOU'D NEVER WEAR A SHIRT THAT SAYS, "jULIA, 36, MOM" OR AT LEAST I HOPE NOT. we know who you are julia.

3. LAYERS WILL GIVE YOUR OUTFITS DIMENSION.

Layers, textures, and patterns are like condiments on a burger. 
You can sit there and just eat your burger plain and pretend to be happy about it... but deep down your dreaming of bigger things in life - like ketchup, mayo, onions, and thousand island... ya know?!  Stop counting your calories and just let your hair down.

4. DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE SHOES.

You know what really doesn’t go with your super cute outfits you spent forever planning? Your husbands running shoes and your kids crocs - Comfy? Yes. Photogenic? Not so much. Oh, and ps - you aren't fooling anyone when you put your baby in those socks that look like shoes. get the real deal, or leave 'em barefoot.

5. DRESS FOR YOU!

"Oh my goodness, I hate my stomach... I should definitely wear a crop top and low-waist shorts...”-- Ummm, no. We all have insecurities, if you don’t like your arms, cover them up. And if you love your legs, show them off! or vice versa. You should be comfortable in what you wear. Besides, no one can pull off a crop top and short-shorts like Ace Fanning.

6. accessories are always a good idea.

Most the time, you don’t bother with bracelets or necklaces because your kids will take them and use them as weapons on their siblings... but today is your day to dust off some of the jewelry thats gathering dust! Oh, and make your husband wear that watch you bought him forever ago THAT he’s worn once.

7. BE YOURSELF!

These are the pictures that will hang in your home. We want you to look like, well... you! Don’t try to be someone or anything else... YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME JUST THE WAY YOU ARE.

*THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT TIP! SO DON'T FORGET IT.
