Before we moved from Massachusetts I wanted to get our family pictures taken and I wanted them to be very “New England” looking. So we got together with our good friends the Berry’s of Berryphoto’s and headed to the beach.
But before you can get your pictures taken you have to plan out the outfits first, right? Well I knew I wanted a Maxi skirt and I have the perfect fabric in mind. This great Ikat-y chevron jersey knit that I picked up from Mood while I was in NYC for our anniversary.
This would be my first time making a maxi skirt, but I wasn’t too worried. The tutorials I found online didn’t seem too difficult. I didn’t take any “in process” photos, but I used the tutorial HERE from Mad Mim and it worked out totally great! And I love that I didn’t need to hem the bottom. Jersey knit is the best
But what to do for Abi and Brad? One day while walking through H&M I spotted a great little white dress for about $5. It was just what I needed. So I took it home and promptly decided that I didn’t like it white. It had to be dyed. I ran to the store and picked up orange, navy and red dyes. When I was home I laid them out to see which one I would like the best. Finally I settled on the orange, just because I thought it was fun. And boy was I glad I did. it was the exact color orange as in the skirt.
As for Brad, he refused to wear that bright red color so I found him a great navy button up and white & blue plaid shorts at TJMax. All in all I think they all work well together. What do you think?
