What to Wear - Back-to-School Mini Session

I've had some parents ask what their child should wear for the Back-to-School mini sessions, so I thought I'd do a post to give you some ideas. The sessions are coming up quickly ( next weekend, in fact) and it's nice to have a little time to look around for a new outfit. Some of my favorite outfit combos come from Gap Kids, The Children's Place and Gymboree. There are also lots of great outfits to be found at Target, Ross and Marshalls. It all depends on your budget. These are just a few suggestions...

I love the look of the school uniform, but jazzed up a bit with some funky socks and shoes, cute hair accessories, etc.

A little less school-like and so cute with the ruffles and bold combo of black and pink. LOVE it!

Do they have those shoes in my size? :D I'm also loving the watermelon and chocolate brown color combo.

It's a little bit more difficult to find funky items for boys. Often your only choice is a hat or tie. But that's okay too. We don't want to go overboard and take away from the child. My philosophy is, "Keep it simple." Dress your child in something that is comfortable and that compliments their skin tone. My son has gorgeous blue eyes and when he wears blue or teal they just pop.
Preppy collegiate look...

I am so into the vest and hat combination right now. I have a boy and this is just such a fun look!

It's still pretty hot for a blazer in Florida, but it looks soooo sharp!

Hope this gives you some ideas for your mini session! See you soon!
