I seriously think the hot weather depresses me. This outfit post is two weekends ago when we had our first family photos. The morning was crisp and my energy and spirits felt happier, if that makes any sense. Maybe it’s just that summer in the south drags on, and the humidity makes it feel even hotter. And the fact that I look forward to Fall fashion and everything that comes along with Fall (leaves, chimney smoke smells, hot chocolate, blankets, Halloween and the holidays), I was just ready for the change already! So I say these were our first family photos because while everyone with a newborn is taking their precious newborn photos, we were a little preoccupied with colic. So while most newborns are peacefully sleeping/posing in baskets/blanket, we were crying… Or burping, bouncing and screaming. Or downing Colic Calm (lifesaver). We weren’t going to attempt a family photo then. Then Robert and I talked about waiting until Jackson could hold his head up himself, or had more of a personality. When we finally got it all together, we lucked out with the perfect Fall morning, and headed out to the prettiest farm with my favorite photographer Lauren. Here are a few…

So a quick detail on the outfit… I’m really into belting my scarves into my outfit. I did it with this dress, but I have also done with with pant outfits as well. All you need is a blanket scarf, or one long enough so it doesn’t look skimpy. I included some links to scarves that are amazeeee, but I have seen some great scarves everywhere. I have had some feedback about the Zara blanket scarves being so expensive online. And there are some high-priced ones, but you can get the basic blanket one for $30-40, and it’s so much easier to find and  assess in the actual store. I have also found great ones all over the place, so stay tuned for a post on my favorite scarves for the season.
