I am dying to get my hands on a copy of photographer Claiborne Swanson Frank’s new book, Mother and Child. In it, Frank explores “what modern motherhood means in the 21st century” — and rounds up some drop-dead gorgeous mom-and-child duos to do it. (Hint: this would be a great mother’s day gift — as would a pretty scarf.)
In preparation for Mother’s Day, I’ve been on the hunt for a pretty coordinating mommy-and-me fashion statement for the two of us to twin in. A couple of favorites I’ve landed upon:
+The dream would be this floaty boho skirt for me and this precious matching dress for her. (Moda Operandi has a whole mom-child collection that is too freaking adorable — but I am OBSESSED with this set from LoveShackFancy; I need it, and I need to wear it while frolicking in a meadow.)
+You can also always lift elements from different places — like take Moda Operandi’s darling polka dot trimmed Johanna Ortiz for babes dress but instead of splurging on the mama version for yourself, buy this less expensive polka dotted top from Need Supply (which is very Johanna Ortiz inspired!) in order to coordinate.
+I like a lot of the boho mommy-and-me looks here.
P.S. Are you kidding me with these daddy-son swim trunks?! Too darling.
P.P.S. Thoughts on matrescence!
