Style advice...

So I need advice. It's super silly advice, but whatever...I can't decide what to do. And I should be able to answer this question considering I am a photographer and would hope I would have an answer for a client if they asked me this same question!
We are getting family pictures taken in a few weeks. I have this vision of what I would like our clothing to look like. It's all panning out beautifully with the boys outfits! I am so excited! We are going to be a Target add because I got the 2 big boys' outfits there and if I wear what I am thinking I might wear - the majority of my outfit (minus my jeans) will be purchased there too! The baby will be wearing something he already has that (in my opinion) is adorable.
Okay, so here's the question...
Is it silly for me to wear a coat in pictures? Let me explain. We will have our pictures taken outside...end of March. The boys are wearing long sleeved shirts and shorts (unless it's bitter cold and make a last minute decision for them to wear jeans). I will be wearing jeans. We are all wearing bright colors that "go", but don't matchy match. I want to wear this...

I LOVE yellow and it "goes" with our color scheme (although this coat in red would too...which they also have). I would also wear this coat a lot...it's so me! :) However, is it silly to wear a jacket in family pictures?! Tell me the truth!

If I don't wear this, I will likely wear a solid black top of some sort with bold, colurful jewelry that "goes" with our color scheme.

I'm sure with or without the yellow coat you'll look fine... great actually! Play it by ear according to the weather!! :]

Go for the coat, it totally looks like you! I love the shade of yellow too, very happy and springy.

I like the coat. And you'll be outside after all. The only thing I thought was, will it be odd to have you in jeans and a coat and the kids in shorts?
