Navy Peplum + Photo Shoot

top: Target Similar
cardigan: Target
jeans: Goodwill
flats: DSW
bracelet: Jared
hair tie: Here  

This is the outfit I wore for the photo shoot that my family and I gave as a Mother's Day present to our mom. I have pretty big family, so we decided to keep to pretty natural/ neutral colors for the photo shoot, like grey, brown, blue, chambray, and gold.

We had my brother's graduation the same day as the photo shoot, so we cleaned up from his graduation reception and changed into our photo shoot outfit and left to get our pictures. It was really hectic, but lots of fun. I promise I didn't look as worn as I do in these pictures that I took as the ones for the photo shoot. We got home pretty late from taking pictures and then I decided I should probably get some pictures of this outfit before I go to bed. So, literally after I took these pictures, I went to sleep.

Also, I'm looking in to buying a Canon 60d, so if your in to cameras, I would love to hear what you think about it. I've been looking at all different Canon cameras but still haven't been able to make up my mind on which is the best deal, so I would love your input!

  2. This outfit is so cute! Perfect for family pics!
    I have a Canon T3 and I love it! I shoot all sorts of things with it... candids, outfit shots, weddings, babies, etc! Canon is definitely the way to go! ;)

    1. That's what I have too, It's a great starter camera. You can shoot fantastically in manual and if you're just starting-it's muuuuch cheaper.

  3. what a great gift for your mom!
    thanks for linking up with dress for the day!

  4. Very cute and i especially love that top :)

  5. i just got a canon ros 6d in january. i dont know much about cameras in general as it's my first DSLR but it is very easy to use and can do sooo much. i chose it as it came top in all the online reviews of dslr's i read x

  6. I'm sure your mom was thrilled, great gift! We shoot with Nikon so I'm not much help in the Canon department but I'm sure you can't go wrong!

  7. I have a Canon 7d and LOVE it. I was a photography major, and the #1 thing that stood out among all of us, were how much more user-friendly canons are! My husband got a little Nikon on sale for Black Friday one year, and I STILL can't find things and adjust settings on it easily!

    BUT I wanted to tell you I ♥ that top and bracelet, and CANNOT believe that I wasn't already following you! SUPER sorry! I could've sworn that I was already a happy follower, but I am now! :)
