We got all dressed up for Christmas card photos, even Mint! In her little Burberry-esque collar & leash c/o SwankyPet. Now Christmas card photos I'm quite fond of. It's like annual engagement photos. Only, they always involve snow. Which is a shame. Not for having snow involved period, but missing out on seasonal variety. So next year we'll take them in June. Scratch that, March. When we will be going on a Caribbean vacation... eeeek! So excited.
So many different directions to go for Christmas card photos. Casual... outerwear... We went Holiday Party style, with darker hues and of course some metallic accents. I layered Patrick's argyle with a checkered grey shirt underneath, both from Target. My look played off of his just a hint, with the black polka dotted sheer top. The frilly tulle and metallic/glitter accents add a hint of glam, a fun little holiday celebration woven right into the outfit. More on that tomorrow in my How-To on dressing for Holiday Shindigs.
