Mommy + Me Outfits.

I’ve had a couple of recent inquiries about coordinating outfits, whether for family portraits or mother’s day or just because. I have to say that one of my favorite early moments in motherhood was when I dressed mini in a Lilly dress that matched my own. It felt like the attainment of a lifelong dream. A couple of options for you…

Lali has some lovely, airy dresses out, and I especially love their bougainvillea print for mama and mini.

I am swooning over this SEA dress for me and this one for mini. Such a pretty color.

Il Porticciolo has some fantastic family matching options. For a more casual look, these overalls on your little and this top on you.

Doen (seen above) also has some gorgeous coordinating and matching pieces. How pretty is the eclipse dress for mama (seen above) and this dress for mini?

This white embroidered dress coordinates with a dress for a little girl and a bubble for baby sister.

Mi Golondrina occasionally releases styles for little ones — consider this dress for you and this for her.

For a matching swim moment, it doesn’t get cuter than Marysia gingham — this for you and this for her — or Minnow’s mosaic print for you, for her, and for him.

Twinning kurtas from Roller Rabbit for mama and mini for your next beach trip.

Damaris Bailey has some darling mama-and-mini pieces, like this seashell-print duo.

For super casual: these on-trend denim shorts for mama and these for mini.

Matching footwear:

JACK ROGERS FOR MAMA AND MINI (I BUY A NEW PAIR EVERY SUMMER SEASON — TIMELESS JACKIE O.!)

YEAR IN AND YEAR OUT, I BUY SUPERGAS FOR MYSELF AND MY CHILDREN

HUNTERS FOR YOU AND HUNTERS FOR HER

FREEDOM MOSES FOR YOU AND YOUR LITTLE

Coordinating pajama options abound, but a few that stand out:

LAKE FOR MAMA AND MINI (WORKS FOR LITTLE BOYS TOO)

HEARTS FROM ROLLER RABBIT — COMES IN A FEW COLORS, BUT I ADORE THE GENDER-NEUTRAL BLUE FOR MAMA, LITTLE, AND BABY SIBLING

PETITE PLUME GINGHAM FOR MAMA AND MINI

LENORA EMBROIDERED HEART NIGHTGOWN FOR MAMA AND MINI

Of course, matching with your little one does not mean you have to wear the exact same print from the same brand. There are some great coordinated looks you can achieve. A few pairings you might consider:

WHITE EYELET ON YOU, HER, AND BABY SISTER

YELLOW FLORAL 1 OR YELLOW FLORAL 2 ON MAMA AND YELLOW GINGHAM ON BABY (OR THIS!)

NAVY EYELET ON MAMA AND COLORBLOCK DRESS ON BABY

TIERED MIDI SKIRT ON MAMA (OR THIS DRESS) AND BUBBLE ON BABY BOY

STRIPED CAROLINE CONSTAS OR AQUA FOR MAMA AND IL PORTICCIOLO OR OLD NAVY ON LITTLES

EMBROIDERED PINK ON MAMA AND PINK BUBBLE ON BABY (OR THIS SWISS DOT)

TIERED GINGHAM ON MAMA AND SCALLOPED BLUE AND WHITE ON MINI

PRETTY PINK AJE ON MAMA AND LULI PERFECTION ON MINI

P.S. More coordinating outfit ideas here.

P.P.S. Great activities to keep children busy on car trips or at restaurants/Church.

P.P.P.S. Helena stories to cheer you up and the best foundation on the planet.

  1. Gah! I love these picks β€” especially the ones from DΓ”EN and Mi Golondrina. Also, I’m so glad you linked to those Freedom Moses sandals, because I actually just ordered them (in a different colorway) after eyeing them for a year! At first I was not into them because I’ve been a loyal Birkenstocks wearer for 25 years (haha), but then I reconsidered because I’m not such a fan of the EVA Birks (they don’t hold up well) and I have heard good things about the fabrication of Freedom Moses’ sandals β€” and I find that it’s a gamechanger to have a waterproof pair for gardening, the beach, etc.!

    1. They do! I got a hunter green floral pair and had to really resist throwing more in my cart … haha! They have great colors & prints!

  2. PSA that Hill House Home is doing a Nap Dress drop tomorrow that includes matching for moms and daughters as well! You can see a sneak peek on their Instagram– there is a navy poplin and a bubblegum pink and white stripe. I am debating if I want to spring for it tomorrow or wait to see some of the new prints that will be released in June, also in “tiny” sizes!
