The Best Mommy and Me Outfits for Spring / Summer:
Mommy and Me Summer Dresses
The bright pops of color that Lilly Pulitzer is known for makes these dresses perfect for twinning! Not only do these looks say summer, the colors photograph beautifully. Whether I’m with my girls or not, I also enjoy having a beautiful dress of my own in my closet for a variety of occasions and events. These classic prints always feel fresh for warmer weather. There are so many Mommy and Me options to choose from, whether you’re looking for swim, formal, casual, or sporty, some of the best m0mmy and me outfits can be found here!
For reference, I am wearing an XS in the below bright green and pink dress, I sized down, as I did try my usual size of small and had to exchange. So consider sizing down on this dress. My girls dresses fit TTS, Elle is wearing a size 6 and Summer is wearing a size 4.
Mix and Match in the Best Mommy and Me Outfits
This pretty purple dress is super comfortable and fits TTS for both my girls and I. This pretty print, like all Lilly Pulitzer prints, is available on a range of items, for example, tops, shorts, rompers, and other dresses in a variety of lengths and styles. That’s one of the reasons I enjoy shopping Lilly Pulitzer, there is something for everyone, no matter one’s personal taste.
Mommy and Me Off the Shoulder Summer Dresses
This trio of dresses makes me smile everytime I see them. My husband took these photos in our backyard, and they have become treasured favorites. The vibrant colors in these dresses are beautiful. I ordered the dresses true to size, and they will fit again next year. I’m wearing a size small. For reference, Elle is five, wearing size 110, while Summer is 18 months in this photo, wearing size 90. There is a stretchy elastic across the chest of each dress. The stitching under the bust, gives a flattering empire waist silhouette. The dresses are 100% polyester and totally wrinkle resistant. This makes them a great vacation option to pack. Each dress has two attached arm holes with cap sleeves. They slide off the shoulders, giving an off the shoulder look, yet keep the dresses secure. They won’t fall down no matter how the kids run and play, and as you can see here, no matter how much mama has to chase them.
Mommy and Me Athletic and Casual Looks
My littlest babe and I recently had fun making yoga moves outside in the backyard. Mommy and me outfits are not just for dressing up, they can be casual and comfy for everyday. Consider a loungewear set that you can snuggle up in, or run errands together with. Twinning looks don’t always have to be an exact match, pull similar items from the closet and see what works.Items can be from different retailers when you’re working with basics. Black leggings, t-shirts, and jeans can still give a matching effect without being from the exact same store.
Ivy City Co. Mommy and Me Dresses
Ivy City Co. has some of the most beautiful mommy and me dresses I’ve ever seen. There are such a variety of styles, prints, and fabrics, there is something for everyone at this gorgeous online boutique. Whether you are looking for day dresses, or something more formal for a wedding, Ivy City Co. has so many options, from all white dresses, to beautiful colors, and soft floral prints. I’ve posted a few of my favorites, though there are so many deliciously feminine options to choose from. Consider sitting with your mini to pick out a matching look together and share a style moment.
Mommy and Me Twinning Dresses on Amazon
If you’re looking for super affordable mommy and me outfits, Amazon is a great place to look. From affordable matching princess dresses to swimwear, just about anything can be found, including matching family looks. Looking on Amazon can at times be overwhelming, so in my free, clickable PDF guide, I’ve broken down all the mommy and me shops so you can decide which best meets your need and style.
I also recommend browsing on Etsy. There are dozens of small shop owners that make beautiful and unique pieces. Some vendors will even customize items for a specific look. From matching sibling onesies for multiples, to mommy and me looks that range from casual to formal, the options are endless.
Matching Sibling Pajamas
In the spirit of matching, just had to share these sweet pajamas for siblings. I’ve found gender neutral sets that work well for both boys and girls. My girls love to spend the day in their pajamas, sometimes even wearing them when Daddy decides to take them outdoors to play. I don’t love the idea of pajamas being worn outside, though I am impressed by how both these printed pajamas and ribbed pajamas have gone the distance. They wash up beautifully, even going through dozens of dryer cycles.
Have fun browsing these matching mommy and me outfits! If you have kids, do you ever wear twinning looks with them?
