Before I became a mom, I dreamed of one day wearing matching outfits with my children. I dreamed of having children that I could buy matching summer outfits for too. Now that I’m a mom, matching outfits are my favorite thing to shop for. I’ll admit that sometimes I may go slightly overboard with it. I’ve even passed my love of matching on to Tatiana. She loves getting to pick out some fun things for us to wear but it’s not always easy to find matching pieces. I’m sharing my two go-to tips to find the perfect mama + me matching summer outfits.
2 Simple Tips for Mama + Me Matching Summer Outfits
1. Pick a theme.
We chose pineapples for this look. Since it’s summer and we were heading to West Palm Beach, there was no better theme than pineapples. I found my shirt for under $15 at H&M and a similar pineapple shirt for Tatiana at Target for under $10. I love sticking to bright colors for the summer. There are tons of different themes to choose from based on where you’re going or what the occasion is.
2. Matching colors are an option too.
We can’t always find similar shirts or pants so we just go with the same color. I lucked out and found these matching shorts at H&M for under $20 each. When deciding which color to go with, be sure to choose something that looks best on both of your skin tones.
I try to find great staple pieces at an affordable price when I’m looking for matching looks. Some of my favorite places to shop are Old Navy, JC Penney, Target, Macy’s, J Crew, Forever 21 and even Walmart.
