Mommy and me outfits. They can be the cutest thing ever… or they can totally bomb. Over the years I’ve strayed away from matching outfits for me and my girls. Mostly because the mom outfits end up looking too “marmy” for lack of a better word. For those of you scratching your heads that means, too mom-ish in my language. These Lucy Love Dream On dresses however, are absolutely adorable. My girls are smitten with the idea they match momma’s trendy look exactly. Bonus! These styles are super hip and I feel ultra chic too! Find out how I gave us each our own individual signature including my brand new “IT” leather tote from Shop Positive Elements.
Although I was gifted these dresses and my tote for the sake of review, all opinions expressed in this blog are 100% my own.
I count it a blessing my girls look up to my style. However, what I wear can sometimes be judged as a little too mature for my darling mini models. I love how Lucy Love gets the trend on point, but keeps the design appropriate for all ages. This floral maxi is a perfect example with it’s flowy fabric, slits at the knee, and off the shoulder silhouette. To make it more age appropriate for both mom and kiddos they gave me a lining in the skirt, and the girls got some convenient shoulder ties to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions.
If you love to match, but still want to let your individual personalities shine, then leave it to the details. I turned my dress into a fall transitional boho look with suede cage heels, a fall hat, a leather belt, and my new “IT” bag. This Whiskey Fringe Tote from Shop Positive Elements had me smitten from the moment I opened the box as it’s warm Italian Leather fragrance wafted from the packaging. The tote is top quality and I love that the company is committed to ethically sourcing their materials and paying their employees a competitive wage. I also threw in a leather necklace and a few stackable bracelets for extra fun. Sienna opted for a soft pink velvet choker and her favorite cage wedges, along with a braided headband to lend the look her own signature feel. Londy is two and full of energy so we dressed her look down with a simple necklace and bare feet so she could run and play to her heart’s desire.
One of my rules for style is that it should be fun! This look is fit for the Florida weather and great for layering too, but more than all that it’s so fun! The girls can hardly wait between laundering, I’ve found them sneaking these dresses out of the laundry basket to wear over and over again. I couldn’t resist either and donned it for my recent trip to the Bahamas. It was the perfect getaway dress.
