WIW on Hawaiian vacation

We were on vacation last week in Hawaii so I mostly just wore T shirts, shorts, and swimsuits. I don't have many pics but just for fun, here are a few (nontraditional) WIW's from last week.
1. Banana Republic berry cowl neck T, Anthro floral skirt, Fossil bag and Dansko sandals. This is the dressiest that I got there, the rest of the time was super casual.
2. Scuba diving with hubs--does scuba gear count as a WIW?
3-4. Matching Hilo Hattie Hawaiian red dress and flower leis with my daughter. DH thinks I'm totally corny for wanting to wear matching outfits with her. I even have bought matching blue Hawaiian shirts for DH & DS and we have done family pictures like that before, but he thinks it's silly and didn't want to bring his shirt this time.
5. The kids in matching Tea Collection shirts. More proof that I love matchy matchy family outfits!
6-8. Bonus pics of the kids swimming!

    When my sons were little, I smocked and sewed adorable things for them (I live in the South, where this is done, especially for church.) Then I bought an age appropriate outfit for the big one, and smocked something coordinating for the little one. When the little one rose up in rebellion against me (he was not quite three) I resorted to matching "brother" outfits. I kept this up until the older one got to middle school age, and I surrendered then to rock and roll tee shirts and years and years of them just not being naked or stinky in public--and this is where we are now, with one in HS and one in MS. Ick.

    I was determined to wring out every ounce of possible pleasure out of dressing my kids, and I'm not one bit sorry. Soon enough they won't let you do this. Do it, photograph it, and enjoy it!
