like mother, like daughter

kids style, family style, mom style, like mother like daughter style, casual contemprary style

We tend to dress alike a lot at our home: mother and daughter, father and son, son and daughter, mother and son, and sometimes even mother and father (I promise not to share our nerdy couple-ness). I take FULL responsibility for all our look-a-like outfits – since I am the head shopper, hand-me-down acceptor for all parties. It’s actually pretty fun (dressing alike), and usually it’s just by total accident – the kids LOVE dressing just like us and since this fun probably won’t last for long, I figured we might as well document the times when our minis dressed just like us. SO in a effort to add an extra pound of cheese on the blog, I thought I might share (every now and then) how we (Harlow&Me) or they (Chris&King) basically dressed like twins.

ME> Hat:The Gap (my sons) similar – Henley:American Apparel (my husbands) – Shirt:H&M similar – Lace Dress:H&M (2011) similar – Socks:H&M – Boots:Joe Fresh (2009)

HARLOW> Coat:Zara (2008) similar – Cardigan:Joe Fresh (2010) similar – Lace Dress:H&M (2011) simialr - Tights:The Gap – Boots:Zara

Here we aren’t totally head to toe matchy matchy, sometimes our cheesiness is a little more toned down and maybe only one of two items are identical. But still, I think it qualifies us for a nerd award or two? What do you think?

Oh my gosh you two are beyond adorable. I too find myself coordinating outfits with my little man, I can't help it it's just so much fun!! I will def. not mind the extra cheese heading this way ;).

Btw I don't know if you're familiar with Harper's Bazaar The Look but when I saw the latest episode featuring Elmo I immediately thought of you! Here's the link if you're interested it's HILARIOUS: http://youtu.be/5ipMtECPAkg?hd=1

I do it by accident ALL the time. I'll look down and realize we are totally matching. But really it makes sense, you have a style, your going to pick out outfits you like and they will look the same!

It's true, I'm sure they won't like the accident when they are older. :)

My daughter & I often end up dressed the same. I like stripes so she has stripy things & I have stripy things. Today she's wearing a cheesecloth purebaby onesie & I'm wearing a cheesecloth dress. Things just happen, I think because I buys clothes for her that I like, they end up being similar to clothes I own.

You both look great, love the lace & Harlow's duffle coat is so cute.
