“Mommy, when we get home can I dress up in your clothes?” says my daughter in the car.
“Sure!” I respond.
One of her favorite things to do lately is to dress up in my clothes. She’ll come upstairs wearing my shirt and shoes and beaming with pride, “Look, I’m a Mommy!”
I love that she dresses up like and wants to be a mom one day. She plays with her baby dolls and takes such great care of them. She is great at nurturing, holding, singing, feeding and changing her baby dolls.
To be honest, I’ve never been one for dressing like my daughter and identical outfits, but I do think there is something fun and bonding about showing my daughter that we are alike. Here are a few ideas: for Creating that Perfect Mom and Me Outfit in a fun and very fashionable way, not a weird creepy way.
There are ways you can do the whole “mommy and me” look and still have fun! Check out some of these ideas—
Although it’s incredibly hard to find exact outfits that look alike when you’re shopping for a mom and a daughter, you can still wear matching clothing. Finding the right clothing is just a matter of keeping your eyes open. Flannel, matching colors, and matching styles are just a few ways you can rock the Mommy & Me matching clothing look.
In my opinion, wearing the same shoes as mother and daughter is simply fun. There are so many types of shoes out there that you can easily match. I feel as though you can easily search online for matching shoes for mommy and me. Think of the endless possibilities available!
We love the Oilukia sandals.
Jewelry & Other Accessories
What little girl doesn’t love jewelry? Finding matching jewelry is one fun way for you both to enjoy style a little bit. Think of the possibility behind matching necklaces, belts, earring,bracelets and even backpacks . If you’re having trouble finding matching outfits, this may be the way to go. One of our favorites is to find scarves that we both love and wear those at the same time.
We love the Mom and Me backpacks from Fjallraven (pictured below). I’ve had my eye on these for my daughter and me, too cute, right?
Creating that “matching” outfit is all about being as creative as possible. If you’re on a budget, then finding those matching outfits can be tough. That’s when you whip out your creativity and step outside the “matching box.” Find different outfits that go together but don’t match perfectly.
