Cape Cod Inspiration

Just had a few minutes here before I head off to work and thought I would share a little of the my beach inspiration.

The final countdown is on…… we are heading North to Cape Cod, much later than we usually do and it feels like our vacation is never going to get here, but we are now within a month of our trip and I started to think about beach photos.

My beach photos are always my most favorite of the year and I was trying to decide which color combos I wanted to go with. Some of you may remember many years back, my first beach photos of Sarah when she was about the same age as Reagan, I had her wearing an adorable white ruffled dress. Since then I have always done some sort of color. I did pink and green, then I did denim and khaki, and last year I did the beautiful pink printed dresses that were made by Robin at Red Thread Stitches.

I knew those dresses would be hard to top because I loved them so very much and unfortunately, Robin is busy filling orders and at this time is not taking any new orders for custom clothes, so I set out in search of…..

Ultimately, I had in my mind settled to go with the white dress look and wanted something ruffly.

Well, I did not end up with white, but I did get lots of ruffles and few fun accessories to go with the outfits. They are not nearly as special as what Robin made for me last year, but they will do……

We are going a little nautical this year!!
I am not a big navy blue person and don’t own much in that color for myself or the girls, but we are giving it a shot. I think it will look super cute with the pop of red and will work well with the water and the sand. Planning to get a series in the two ruffled dresses and then one with the polka dot and striped dresses.

The package of goodies arrived this week and OH MY GOODNESS, let me just say the photos above do not do these outfits any justice. I can barely wait to see them on the girls:)
