What To Wear For Family Holiday Card

Wednesday, November 25, 2015

I recently had the pleasure of styling a beautiful family for a morning news segment here in San Diego with the CW6!  The theme, How to Dress for Holiday Photos!  
You're probably wondering this same question right now and trying to figure out how to dress your family for your holiday greeting cards!  I get asked all the time "what should I wear in photos?" "should we match?" the answer is yes and no!  You don't want to wear the same exact outfit as each other but you do want to coordinate your outfits.  So find a color palette that works and build around that with each outfit.  When styling these looks I found adorable outfits for  both the kiddos at Vanilla Squid in Del Mar.  Mom's outfit is from Fairen Del, also in Del Mar and Dad is wearing Nordstrom.  I went with warm neutral tones for their outdoor photoshoot incorporating browns, blacks and reds.  You want to stay away from adding too many different shades of color and stick to 3-4 colors that all compliment one another.      

I also styled a beautiful couple for a romantic indoor photoshoot.  I'll be honest, I love dressing women and I wanted her to be the focal point, sorry guys! So I focused on giving her a winter wonderland feel with golds and white while her husband had on a pair of slacks, a white long sleeve shirt and a button up cardigan.  They looked lovely together!

Fall Neutrals

Hello Friday Eve!!!  I'm seriously working towards the weekend today because I'm heading out to Palm Springs for a couple days and I'm excited to spend time with family and get away for a little bit before the madness that is holiday season completely takes over!!  It's supposed to be 80* in Palm Springs, am I crazy to think I can get one weekend of lounging by the pool in?!  I'm certainly going to try! haha  

As for today however, I can certainly feel that crisp breeze in the air so I'm reaching for layers while keeping the colors very neutral.  I stared with a pair of skinny jeans and a striped long sleeve top then added this amazingly soft brown cape that I could literally sleep in, and a pair of brown boots.  It's a very casual look that you can wear to dinner, shopping or checking out the holiday lights!!

As promised last week, I have some exciting news to share with you!!  This year I'll be hosting my very own 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway!!  All of my favorite things just for you!!!

Sweater Weather

Monday, November 16, 2015

Skinny jeans and sweaters are what I'm reaching for lately since it's been pretty chilly in the mornings, although I'm not complaining I love that it's finally sweater weather!
For today's look I combined a pair of green utility jeans, a cream colored chunky knit sweater and black accessories including these studded Zara flats.  Living in San Diego you learn to adapt to the weather, like this morning it was 45* and later today it's going to be in the high 60's.  I know if you don't live in San Diego, you're probably laughing thinking 45-60* is warm! haha  So, depending on where you live you could easily add a pair of boots (ankle or tall) and a jacket to bundle up just a bit more!

p.s.  I have something really fun for you coming up on December 1st just in time for the holidays!!!  I'll give you more details this Thursday, trust me you do not want to miss this!!! :)
