I need your helps.

So we are doing some family pics this weekend.  Ok, they are Griffin's 1 year photo's... which are actually almost 11 month photos, but who is being specific?  SO mostly this is all about him.  I'm going to get a pic in his JonJon (I have been asked... and a jonjon is what we southern mama's dress our baby boy's in so that they are kind of girlie.  It's true.  I said it.  Sorry, G$.)  I also have a birthday boy shirt for him.  And, I'm thinking I might take some balloons.  He's going to be adorbs.  I'm sure of it.

Anyway, I'd also like a family picture.  We don't get these very often.  I don't want to be matchy matchy.  I don't know what to wear.  Here are the problems
1.  It's hot.  Even at 8:30 am.
2.  My husband is a sweaty beast.
3.  My husband will only wear shirts with collars (so it is usually a long sleeved button up rolled at the sleeves or a polo.)
4.  I want to look 10 lbs thinner than I am currently.

Who can resolve this?  We really like blue and green.  G's jonjon is blue with light green on it.  Sigh.  I need a zillion dollars and a day of shopping.

We will match, but not matchy match. Sadly, we all have the same color pallet because I am drawn to all the same colors :) Navy, blue, green, pink. Mostly blue :)

I'll take advice from the photographer. You should come photograph us! I will pay you in margaritas and sunshine. And hand me down boy clothes.

I say for you and boyfriend Ben that one of you wear the green and the other wear the blue. That way you're not matchy matchy but still coordinated with Griffin.

I always lay our clothes out together before we get pictures and take a picture of it and check to see how it looks. But I'm weird like that.
