Family Holiday Photo Outfit Ideas

One of my random hidden talents is putting together family holiday photo outfit ideas(and I only say this because previous photographers have told me that I did a good job with the outfits and colors).

Holiday Looks from J Crew Factory

Every year, J Crew Factory puts out the best holiday clothing collection. Looking back at my outfits from the past few holidays, over half of them had something from J Crew Factory.
