The boys are wearing matching,

dark blue jeans
brown strpey t-shirt

DP wearing,

dark blue jeans
white or black shirt (white if i get my way)

I want it to be not to formal and kind of casual but i don't want to walk in, in grungy jeans and yest top (my daily wear)

I have a ton of clothes at my disposal, what do you think i should wear!

dark jeans, white shirt, bare feet (a cliche but does look fab)

DP should wear jeans and a black t-shirt, and you should wear jeans and a white t-shirt.

OR they all wear jeans and you wear gorgeous skirt and vest top, because you are the laydeee of the house.

Are you having any done in black and white? In which case, ditch the brown t-shirts.

No i think it will be in colour.

Brown t-shirt are the only mathcing things they have that are plainish, the boys are 3 and 8 months by the way.

I like the simple plain shirt and jeans bare foot look.

This i may break the camera in a peephole bra and thong though!

I would like to wear a skirt but only have ankle boots or flip-flops or jeans or rediculously high leopard print stilettos!

bare feet for you too CW I think.

Is the Swiss Family Robinson look.

CharleeWeasley Fri 10-Aug-07 12:53:09

Yes i think i will go with white shirt dark blue or black jeans with bare feet.

DP is black t shirt and dark blue jeans. (he looks really hot in that)

Kids in dark blue jeans and the brown t's. all bare feet!

yes-ditch the brown unless they really suit that colour.
Pick a t-shirt for each that they really suit,wouldn't bother about matching.

CharleeWeasley Fri 10-Aug-07 14:15:19

Recalling DH's portfolio from 'O' level photography, women should wear an oversized white shirt, trilby, and high heels.

With very, very bright red lipstick, and lots of eyeliner.

And if they sit backwards on a high-backed chair, that really completes the look!

What you've described sounds lovely, charlee.

I hope you all have a great time.
