Since Kade turned 10 months just before the holidays I thought it was only fitting that we glammed up our family photos. December has been much colder than I anticipated so that meant we would need to be inside for our pictures.  Close to where I work in the city is a new luxury apartment complex called Anthem House. I pass it everyday to/from work and admire how cool the building is, especially the pool about 4-5 stories up that overlooks the city. They were amazing to work with and extremely accommodating in allowing us to check out their space.  We were in awe of the refined rustic decor.  Each space was extremely warm and inviting with nods to Baltimore history, art and architecture. Each space was cooler than the next, lots of wood, metal, leather and cowhide textures. There were so many cool common area spaces for the tenants to utilize.  In their building they have several lounge areas, pool table, sitting nooks, courtyard, pool, and conference room.  I was totally swooning at the the little decor details, but my favorite were the large fire places and rolling shelves of books.  We popped outside to check out the pool overlooking the Harbor and snap a few pics but it was thirteen degrees so we couldn’t stay out there long. We also had a chance to explore one of the models… it was a two bedroom, 2 bath living space with a beautiful view of the city! If we were in the market for a new city home I would definitely like to live here!
As for our family style… we went fancy! I started with Kade’s outfit, we used his black corduroys with red suspenders from our Christmas photos,  a denim shirt, green plaid bow tie and Christmas plaid blazer.  I could have easily styled us in Christmas Red but since these we our family photos vs. Christmas photos I decided to go in another direction.  Once I had Kade’s look locked in, I went to my husband’s closet. Since Christmas was around the corner I was trying to avoid purchasing a lot of new items. I knew he had a navy blazer that would be perfect and found a green pinstripe shirt to compliment.  Next up was styling me… Sassanova has had me crushing on Misa Los Angeles dresses lately so I took a look to see what might work and there it was… the Madeline Dress. Perfect in every way!!! So many reasons pointed to this one being the winner! One, Mom’s name is Madeline {and I love that name}, two, crushed velvet {enough said}, three, long gown =fancy, four, the plunging neck line = sexy glam, five, the sleeves, and six, the most beautiful emerald green that would just pop next to my boys. Hug thank you to April from April Davidson Bly who did a fantastic job capturing so many smiles and fun moments from our time visiting the Anthem House.288A1388288A1165288A1501288A1580288A1732288A1321288A1239288A1125288A1495288A1563288A1661288A1767288A1777288A1574288A1446288A1200288A1306288A1519288A1652288A1678288A1760288A1418288A1251288A1702288A1671288A1399288A1545288A1339288A1669288A1762288A1508288A1612288A1675
