Family Style: Mom 4 Ways

Today we're going to do a little demonstration for the moms.  The moms who carefully plan out outfits for everyone else in the family and then at the last second throw something together for themselves.  Today we're showing you how your outfit is just as important as every other member of the family. All of the below Style Boards are the same except for Mom's top.  And in one case she has a dress so the jeans are removed.  Take a look at how different each Style Board looks as mom's outfit changes.

In the first outfit, a "coatigan" in navy and red brings out the darker tones in the whole family.  Adding a large print balances out the smaller prints and really creates a playful yet sophisticated look.mom style 4

The mod houndstooth dress for mom pairs well with every possible photo combination of family members.  It's flattering cut would look great on any body type!mom style 3

Sometimes moms like to keep it simple.  That's great, too.  This zipper detail ivory top looks classic and chic.  It lights and brightens the darker reds and navies.  The outfit is simple, but will look timeless in years to come.mom style 2 In the last Style Board mom is wearing a tonal print sweater.  Its a fun print that really brings out the red and is perfect for holiday card photos.  It's casual style would be a fun outdoor photo session.mom style 1

 

So there you can see just how big of an impact Mom has on family photos.  Which is your favorite?

Scary kids Halloween costumes

When the Chasing Fireflies Halloween catalog hits our mailbox, my kids spend hours circling their favorite costumes. It takes them weeks to narrow down just one favorite Halloween costume. If they could have more than one costume for Halloween they would. As they get older they are have stronger opinions on what they want to dress up as. kids halloween costumes

Dylan was adamant on being the Grim Reaper or what he refers to the "Grim Creeper". I had to warn him that he would not be able to wear his skull mask at school or bring the Scythe.

Family Style Friday: Fair Isle

   

 

It's our favorite time of year, the leaves are changing and families all over are planning outfits for their holiday card photo sessions!  This Friday we're featuring some of our favorite mix and match family outfits from Hanna Andersson.

It's always nice when brands do a "Family" section because you know colors within the collection will coordinate and it makes picking outfits simpler without having everyone matching in the same pattern.

Hanna Andersson Fair Isle These little sweater reindeer overalls could be my favorite thing ever.  The sister outfits coordinate and repeat the snowflakes but are not too matchy-matchy.

You can find all of the pieces in this style board in the Holiday North Star collection in Hanna Andersson's Family Shop.  

Are you taking family photos soon and need a little help with what to wear?  TLSF Styling Team can take the stress out of your family photo session.  You worry about how you're going to bribe the kids, we'll take care of the outfits.  For info, send an email to info@thelittlestylefile.com.

Boys Fashion: All about layers

It is looking and feeling more like fall these days. As a mom getting the kids ready in the morning can be difficult because when they leave in the morning the temperatures are chilly but by the afternoon its much warmer. This is when layering comes in and is key this time of year. boys fall fashion

Dylan is in first grade this year. Surprisingly he has a lot of input on what he wears. He loves button downs but prefers a comfortable pant. Together we try to pick clothing items that will make it easy to get ready in the morning before school. boys fall fashion Pairing a graphic t-shirt with a button down is an easy way to layer for the cooler tempertaures. It also gives your little guy a bit more style than just a plain t-shirt. In the afternoon Dylan usually comes home with his button down in his backpack. The biggest hit for boys this fall is Hi Top Sneakers! Dylan refuses to wear anything other than the Hi Top Jet Sneaker to school.

boys fall fashion Dylan is wearing a long sleeve graphic t-shirt, Plaid button down, Athletic Windpants, Hi Top Jet Sneakers and football lunch box. You can now receive free shipping plus 25% off at The Children's Place.
