Holiday Photos + Pretty Festive Details

November 10, 2016 9 Comments


Hi everyone! I’m so excited to share our first family holiday photos with you all! We took these at Peltzer Pines in Silverado Canyon. It was such a beautiful location! I didn’t know Christmas tree farms like this even existed in OC. I’ve never seen so many PERFECT trees. If you live in Southern California, you definitely need to make a trip here to get your tree! I promise it’s worth the drive.

As some of you have noticed, I am a sucker for sequins, beading and embroidery! I love unique pieces with beautiful detailing. This blouse and ruffle skirt I wore for this shoot has gorgeous silver and gold beading. It’s even prettier in person and really festive for the holidays. The girls are wearing multi colored sequin dresses that are also perfect for the holidays and of course, New Years Eve! They loved wearing these dresses so much, they asked to wear them to school the next day! Haha! It’s a little more challenging for me to try to find pieces for Josh. I’m so used to dressing girls and have no clue about Men’s fashion. I wanted him to coordinate with us without looking to “matchy matchy.” I love this jacket I found at Nordstrom. It has a subtle pattern that goes with everything. All of our outfit details listed below. Happy (almost) Holidays everyone!

    Love all the clothes. I’m so glad you helped Josh, he needs some new cool stuff to wear too. You both are gorgeous and can model anything, same with Kins & Char.

    Thank you for putting a part of your life out in the open for your fans to enjoy. Your story is a great one to watch unfold, and you inspire me to never give up. I think it’s wonderful the way you dress your girls up, I bet they have so much fun dressing up with mom and being little models with you. I would have loved to spend time with my mom like that as a child. I wish you and your family the absolute best, and that includes your new addition to the family- Josh (so happy for you guys). Looking forward to more fashion/beauty advice from you. Never stop spreading your beauty!
    P.S. I’m ordering that beautiful blouse ASAP lol!
