Mini Boden dress/cardigan combos are some of my absolute favorite outfits.  I find myself using them for most of our professional family pics because they’re timeless and classic, making it easy to match the rest of the family in terms of style, but they still also allow some room for creativity in terms of the bold colors and prints.

Our current favorites from this spring/summer:

Mini Boden Pretty Collar Knitted Dress (all sizes) with Pointelle Cardigan. 

Note:  The cardigans run very big.  Claire is wearing a size 12-18 months in the above pictures, even though her dresses are size 2-3 and she usually wears a 2T.

Here are some examples of how these outfits work so well in family pics:

The dress/cardigan combo allows you to incorporate a fun print in your outfit scheme and still keep a single flattering color up by the face (most striking for portraits).
