Mama + Mini and Birthday Week!

You all know that I have sort of an obsession with matching Harper's outfits to mine. Or maybe it's the other way around. Either way, I LOVE IT.
 I've gotten a lot of emails over the last few months asking about where I find things & ideas for more matching outfits. So I decided that it might just be the most fun thing ever for a new weekly feature with some of the cute mama + mini matching outfits that we are loving! :)


Currently, I am obsessed with the teals/blues that are all over the place, so very springy & even festive just in time for St. Patty's Day! You all know I love a good scarf or belt to pair with just about anything. Including my pajamas. Hell, I'd sleep in my gold glitter belt if it wouldn't rub off all over the sheets! Speaking of that gold glitter belt, I can't wait to share the matching-ish outfits that we have planned for Harper's big birthday bash!! While I desperately wanted to wear a tutu like the one she will be rocking, I decided to tame it down a bit with just a maxi skirt.

But for now, it is BIRTHDAY WEEK, and our house has been taken over by gold glitter & pink ombre. And tissue paper. So. much. tissue paper.


We feel so blessed. And so ready to party.

  30. Loooooove it! I love being matchy with my little girl, especially in subtle ways like scarves that match her shirt, etc but sometimes we go full out twinkies if I come across matching tops that I love (like the pink & red striped onesie from buy buy baby for her & gap tee for me that we'll be sporting for valentines day!) our big 1st bday celebration will be in June and I just can't believe. I've been party scheming for months!

  31. I love the matching bit, we do A LOT of family coordination/matching over here, I grew up one of five and if you want to see matching, we were Brady bunch matching all.the.time, I blame my mother because now I coordinate out I habit *scapegoat*. Can't wait to see her birthday party

  37. Adorable! I always pray that I have a little girl because I don't really feel like dressing to match a son. I bought three shirts last week that were minty green and I am obsessed with matching with them. Cannot wait to see all the birthday celebrations you have planned for Miss Harper!

  51. Yea I definitely dont dress my son like me all the time (; but we do both sport plaid/flannel some days and we have a matching Led Zeppelin shirt. If I had a little girl I would be all about mommy/mini outfits, but I totally love looking at yours!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I'm dying to know where you got the Iowa onesie. My husband is the Director of Bands at ISU. I'd love to dress our little guy up in something similar (Cyclone colors, of course) for one of the games.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I'm from Iowa so I'm dying over your shirts in the first picture, where did you get those? And the hello/hi sweatshirts are amazing too! I really hope I have a girl some day because I would love to do the same thing with my daughter. I could do it with a son but that probably wouldn't work out as well haha.

  56. This post is a week too late! I found the cutest denim dress that would have matched my daughters skirt she wore for her Birthday party last sunday (she was 2 on the 8th)and i figured I'd get made fun of...now I'm kicing myself ;) Have fun w/ the big birthday bash! Although I'll have to say #2 was even better b/c our little girl kept saying "Happy Me Morrow" the night before and all day on her birthday she'd say "HAPPY ME!" So we'd sing Happy Birthday to her. HAPPY BIRTHDAY HARPER!
