I was on the hunt for a dress to wear for professional family beach photos.
My Outfit and Pics
I styled blue tones this week for the blog, as I was inspired by the ocean, clear blue skies and water. I love the “free” feeling in the water, and my inner child comes out when I am on the boogie board, riding the waves into the shore.
This dress had the colors and vibe I was looking for. The style and drape of the dress first caught my eye. I think the shape with the dolman sleeves, twisted waist and straight maxi style accounts for the elegant style. The slit up from the front gives it some sexiness as well as the deep v-neck.
Although I usually think of the Grateful Dead when I think of tie dye. It has come a long way! I have 2 tie dye dresses now. I loved the blue painted look as if carefully selecting the brush strokes.
My white rattan bag is the most worn of the summer and my espadrilles are a close second. I could certainly pair it with a pair of
slides for a more casual look as well.
I scored Poshmark for these earrings, and have bought several Kendra Scott pieces this way. They are a beautiful blue hue with gold posts and would also capture that ocean/beachside look.
The photoshoot was quite fun and a challenge, as we had our entire family there as well as two tiny tots. The photographer told my nephew, “Thumbs in the pockets” to help children know what to do with their hands. My brother then, subconciously did the same! We kept saying, Matt, thumbs in the pockets!”
My sister, sis in law and I have a bit longer hair which we sprayed diligently, using up a fair amount of the bottle. Once we were at the beach, in the evening( better lighting) my hair whipped around endlessly during the entire shoot. Should be interesting! I know you want a beachy look.
We should be able to choose the pictures in a few weeks. We had a good time and the setting was beautiful .
