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.
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
