Matching Mommy and me Outfits are one (of the hundreds) of reasons why I love having a little girl. I started day dreaming about Riley and
I wearing Matching Mother Daughter (aka Mommy and Me) outfits since I was pregnant. Wearing matching Mommy & Me outfits, isn’t just about wearing matching clothes, it’s about the bond it creates between you and your little girl and the fun times and memories you are able to share together.
Riley is at the perfect age (she’ll be 3 in August so she’s a little more than 2 1/2 years old) to start making “Mommy & Me” memories, just yesterday I noticed Riley mimicking my every move. We were at the doctor’s office and I bent down to get my insurance card out of my purse and noticed Riley was also bending over going through her little purse. When I pulled out my wallet Riley pulled something out of her purse and pretended like it was a wallet. She did exactly what I did….she not only pretended that the thing she’d pulled out was a wallet, but she pretended to unzip it, take something out, zip it back and then put it back in her purse. It was absolutely precious and definitely put a smile on my face.
Riley is my little mini me, while she looks a lot like her daddy, she also resembles me when I was her age. Not to mention, she acts just like me…she loves dancing and tumbling and is a little fashionista with exceptional style (jewelry, scarves, shoes and purses)….Oh she’s also all about helping me with my DIY projects. I call her my little DIY Girl.
So, it’s only right that my mini me dresses like her mommy, right? 🙂 While Riley and I don’t have a ton of matching outfits, we do have quite a few very similar mommy & me outfits and a lot of coordinating outfits, but I am working on getting us more matching mommy & me pieces. Especially now that I’ve discovered a number of retailers, online shops and etsy shops that sell Mommy & me outfits.
Now to the Good Stuff…..
Use wardrobe staples to create matching mommy & me looks
Black Leggings and a chambray shirt are definitely a wardrobe staple for all women, so if you don’t already have these pieces on hand then you should look into getting them, not only because they are two of the most versatile pieces you can have in your closet, but they make the most adorable matching mommy & me outfit for you and your mini me.

Pair your chambray shirt with a pop of color and animal print
You can wear red or any other bright color jeans or pants and spice it up with an animal print cardigan.
You can pair a button down with skinnies for another adorable Mommy and Me look

Matching denim jeans and a tee (black or white) are one of the easiest ways to create your own Mommy & me look just because you more than likely you and your mini me already have one of these color shirts on hand.

If you want to make this look a little more customized you can have matching mommy & me monogrammed shirts made.

You can also layer your jeans and tee with matching cardigans

Another easy way to give your minimalist mommy & me look a little more flair is to accessorize with matching scarves and boots.
