I got so many questions on where I got Aria’s cute outfit for our family pictures. It would be easier to just do a post about it instead.
When styling my family for pictures I don’t like doing matchy matchy. I like having similar colors in our outfits, a theme if you will. I went with blues, greens, and denim.
Searching for a dress for her I wanted something fun to suit her personality. Something a little freeing but cute and styled. Aria has such a fun and bubbly personality. She is quite a ball of sass so I try to channel that when searching for outfits for her. I also look for outfits I want to wear and finding mini versions of that.
I came across H&M in my search for a chambray style dress. The dress was a little out of my price range after taxes and shipping, but I saw at the bottom of the page you get a 20% off coupon if you sign up for their newsletter so I did that bringing Aria’s outfit back into budget.
I originally had a cute pair of gladiator sandal picked out for her outfit. It looked adorable with her belt and her curls, but I remembered we were going to be photographing in the mountains with rocks and sharp surfaces so I grabbed her favorite pair of riding boots.
When deciding hair for pictures I always suggest wearing hair down or half up. If you have it back it good emphasize parts of the face that aren’t so photogenic. I mean Aria is perfect and could rock anything but I love how pictures look when a kids is free to run and play and a lot of times you have to really tie back and hairspray down hair if its up in a bun or braid.
That is how I shop for Aria not only for pictures but for anything. Channel your kids personality, use newsletters and signing up for emails to get discounts.
