A few weeks ago we took out first family photos. I have always wanted to take photos out at a dry lake bed. Some people might not think its very cool. I mean, it’s just a bunch of dirt. But I just love the simplicity of it. We wanted to shoot the family pictures just as the sun was setting, and happened to have some extra time once we arrived.
I just so happened to have this outfit in my car so I threw it on to snap a few pictures before the lighting was just right for our other photos. Layered looks always look amazing, but I can’t handle the bulkiness of layering. That’s why I love this shirtdress because it’s all in one. Even the neck tie is a part of the ensemble. Unfortunately this exact dress sold out YESTERDAY. But I’ve linked to some other amazing layered and neck tie shirtdresses and shirts.
When I posted a sneak peek at these photos I received a few questions about my lip color. I use this Satin Lip Pencil almost daily! I use the color Rikugien.
I can’t wait to show you all of my family photos! There are a few previews over on my Instagram, but the full blog post is coming soon. You can see similar options to my shirtdress below, plus some fun layering bibs that look amazing under a sweater, but don’t add all the bulk.
