That means we can do whatever we want, right?!! So, when I say, "This is what you're gonna wear..." This is what your gonna wear. When I say, "Smile!"...Well, that’s a whole other story!

I love themes for family pictures, because it definitely makes the picture look a lot better when everyone’s coordinated. Not to mention, it just makes the day a little bit more fun!
Some days I make sure everyone looks super dressy (skirt, tie, heels, curls...You get it). Other days, I want everyone to have a good time! This Mother’s Day, I chose to go with something everyone would enjoy: Super Heroes!!!!
Believe it or not, for my outfit, I already had everything in my closet, including my skirt. This leads me to my first piece of advice when coordinating:
Tip 1: Pick one item and coordinate everything off of that.
Then, I went to good ol’ faithful, amazon prime, because like everyone else’s life, my schedule is pretty tight and time flies by. I had 4 days before i needed to have this ready and of course... PRIME saves me every time!
So i went to search amazon for the rest of the looks...
Cash already had a pair of these shoes in bright green (from our Easter outfits) so I knew how they fit. They actually fit very very small I went up 2 entire sizes for him! Knowing that... i was able to order him another pair and of course, once Velvet saw his bright green high top sneakers, she wanted a pair too! So I ordered her some as well but in yellow!!
Then i searched super hero girls... Which led me to a bunch of costumes. The best part about Amazon is that it gives you similar ideas if you scroll to the bottom. That’s when I ran into her dress. I topped it off with an adorable jacket from my store's kids' collection.
Tip 2: I always dress the girls first.
Boys are the easiest to dress. You can always find a basic shirt or a nice plaid top with coordinating colors.
For Cash’s top, I searched, "super hero shirt." ...Boom! I paired that with an older black basic jacket to dress it up ( which is a must have for a little boy, you can dress any T-shirt up with a nice black jacket). Of course, he will take it off the moment we get to church and mom doesn’t see him anymore! But we at least got a picture!
I'm sure all of you moms are freaking out, and maybe even questioning my mental state since I put my 7-year-old in white jeans. But! Clorox bleach is a mom's best friend! Plus, you better believe, the moment we get home, he takes them off. They survived Easter and Mother's day. If Cash is able to wear something twice, I consider it a win, white or not (with a little help from Clorox)!
Finally, Brad. Because of his height and amazing stature, he is tough. Usually I show him my color palette, and he shows me what he has to work with. In this case, however, I knew I could just order him a T-shirt and a tie. Both were so easy to find!
....And BAM (super hero pun intended)! You've got a classy coordinated family outfit that is fun for everyone!
