our look

When thinking about what we were going to wear for Duke’s newborn shoot, I knew that I wanted a timeless and classic look. I opted to stick with the blue and white theme, and I love how this dress tied it all together. Below I have linked what we wore (Dottie’s dress was sold out from Sophie & Lucas so I linked a similar option).
