I told myself that when I became a mom of more than one child that I would never dress them alike. My mom did it to my sister and I when we were little and I didn’t like it at all. Quickly after Avery was born I threw that rule out of the window and dressed the girls alike on special occasions.
Now I’m totally going against my rule and find myself coordinating my outfits with them. I won’t completely wear the same thing as they are, but I will definitely try to coordinate in some way. Mother’s Day is a great holiday to dress like your little one. I searched far and wide on the internet for mother and daughter matching outfits for Mother’s Day. To my surprise, there was a lot that I fell in love with and so many outfits I can’t wait to buy. It’s hard to pick just one outfit for Sunday!

Color Blocking 2 of 11
I love the bright and neutral colors on both of these dresses. The t-shirt dress is perfect for Avery because it gives her a lot of room to run around and play!

Brighten Your Day 7 of 11
I love this color green. It is such a great color for spring. The subtle floral print on the dress for me is great and can be dressed up or down. The subtle flower on the top of the dress for Avery helps tie everything in together.
Loving Lilly 8 of 11
Lilly Pulitzer dresses are so bright and cheery. Perfect for spring and summer. I love the bright pink on both of these dresses and that it pulls them together. The dress for me is simplistic yet has a subtle detail with the eyelet. The gorgeous flowers on Avery's dress are so fun.

Ravishing Red 10 of 11
These are probably two of my favorite picks. The dress for me is gorgeous and timeless. It can be worn with heels or with sandals and still look just as gorgeous. The bright colors on the dress for Avery combined with the big flowers make it stand out from the crowd.
