Before I had a child, I swore to high heaven that we would never, EVER dress in matching attire.
After having a child? Well…let’s just say the lines have become a little bit fuzzy.
I still refuse to dress in completely “matchy matchy” outfits, but a little bit of coordinating? Now that I can go for and I know I’m not the only mom who feels this way. So, I’ve decided to start a new series here of mommy + child coordinating outfits.
Today is a mommy/daughter Valentine’s Day Style (mommy + son version will be coming tomorrow!). Click through to see where each item is from!
Love Ballad Tunic 1 of 11This is technically a tunic, but looks long enough for the mama with hot legs worth showing off. It that's not you, then feel free to add a pair of black tights to give you some extra coverage and/or warmth! I love that this isn't a stereotypical Valentine's color scheme. The black and tan is very chic.
Purchase for $38.00 from ModCloth
To Have and To Gold Earrings 2 of 11Little gold heart studs are perfect for Valentine's Day and every day after as well.
Purchase for $11.99 from ModCloth
Printed Chiffon Twist Scarf 3 of 11I just got one of these for my little girl and it's the cutest thing ever. I like it so much, I'm longing for one of my own and I love how these subtle polka dots coordinate (not compete) with the heart pattern on the dress.
Purchase for $14.00 from American Apparel
The Billie Boot 4 of 11Every mama needs a pair of cute ankle booties in her repertoire and these ones are fantastic. Totally comfortable and go with everything, but with just the right amount of heel to keep things stylish.
Purchase for $208.00 from Madewell
DIY Heart Sweater 5 of 11So, this sweater was exactly what I was looking for when it came to the "little" portion of this outfit, but I couldn't find a shirt or sweater like it anywhere. No matter, just find a tan sweater (likely from the boy's department) and DIY your own using this meant for adults tutorial that will still work for a little one.
