I love mommy and me outfits with matching or coordinating pieces. I think they are adorable and many of us like to do it to a degree for family photos once a year. But how cute would it be to rock mommy and me outfits without a specific occasion?! It used to be hard or expensive to find coordinating adult and kid clothes but not any more!
I was so excited to find out that Old Navy offered items in their kids line made from the same fabric and print as their women’s line. I now realize that I should have looked to see if there were matching clothes in the boys and men’s section, maybe next time! (I’m sure my boys will be thrilled to wear matching clothes, ha!) The reason I was excited was because Old Navy style is very affordable. So I don’t have to break the bank in order to be cutesy matchy-matchy with my mini me!
These pictures were taken on Memorial Day which was a low key family time for us. We made the most of a few rain-free hours in our back yard. I love capturing moments from our life that are unscripted and without the pressure of “picture day” diminishing everyone’s fun. If you have little kids and have ever tried to take professional family pictures, you know what I’m talking about.
I picked dresses with a summery floral print. We have a beach vacation coming up and the light weight easy care of the fabric will be perfect for it. I intend to go back and pick a few more mommy and me outfits from Old Navy. Can you blame me?
