Wardrobe Wednesday {what to wear – one stop shopping!}

Today’s Wardrobe Wednesday comes from the hilarious Shannon of Shannon J. Dodge Photography. She’s pulled together three fun outfits from a fantastic (and affordable!) store that is totally new to me. Thanks, Shannon – you rock!

From Shannon:

Ok, ok. I admit it. I flaked and FORGOT this week was my week to put together an adorable ensemble for Wardrobe Wednesday! So, what’s a girl to do? I figured I would save time with visiting ONE site, and getting all of the outfit ideas from that ONE site! Stay with me now. How many of you moms out there REALLY have a ton of time to spend on putting together outfits for your sessions?!?! I personally enjoy it BUT right now, I just don’t have the time. Sound familiar? If you have the time, by all means, go all out and have a blast! But, if you’re short on time, try getting all or most of your items from ONE store!

I always tell all of my clients to USE COLOR in your session. Especially w/ children. Color adds even more personality to your gorgeous children. It adds depth to portraits and makes them FUN! For this ensemble, I started w/ a base color of brown and then used POPS of color. Pops of color in hair accessories, shoes, bracelets. You get the idea. For the little sister’s dress, I went bright and bold…for older sister’s outfit, I chose something a tad more mature but still FUN and added pops of color to it! I love the bright blue color of the brother’s shirt and how fun are his shorts? Can you believe EVERYTHING here came from one store?? Check it out. Crazy 8. I could go crazy on that site! AND it’s totally affordable. Happy shopping!
