Get Stylishly In Sync: Mommy & Me Fashion
When I found out that the lil’ bean I’m carrying was of the lady variety, I was beyond excited! Not only was I elated that we were having a healthy baby girl, but thoughts of mommy and me style immediately started swirling around in my head. What can I say? A fashion obsessed gal like me can’t help but be stoked about the idea of playing dress up with a mini me!
That’s not to say that my lil’ dude has been completely exempt from coordinating outfits. I love decking our family out in harmonizing colors, especially when it comes time for family photos! Here we are in our orange and blue ensembles. My juicy hued necklace picks up the orange in my son’s shirt and the color is a fun contrast to my bright blue frock! Our outfits look nice next to each other, yet aren’t too matchy matchy.

I’m not saying that my daughter and I won’t rock matching dresses a time or two in the future, but I prefer mommy and me looks that simply go together versus completely match each other!
Take a look at Jessica Alba and her sweet bambino Haven. Notice how Haven’s pink and orange hat plays perfectly off her mama’s orange printed cardy. They’re such a pretty pair…don’t you think?
And here’s an inspiration set that I put together for myself and my own lil’ lady bean. The yellow maxi coordinates with the pineapple printed baby dress as do the turquoise sandals and bangles!
So, the next time you’re feeling like having a mommy and me style moment, try selecting a coordinating color palette, then choose pieces for you and your kiddo that complement each other. It’s as easy as pie!
