It’s official: I’ve become obsessed with mother-daughter and mother-son looks! What better way to celebrate Mother’s Day than to wear matching outfits with the two people I love the most?
The only challenge was to find a theme that would allow me to create fun looks for both my daughter AND my son, which limited my colour and pattern choices. I finally went with a vertical white and navy stripe pattern that we’re all wearing in slightly different ways in the pictures below.
Before I show you our looks, I want to thank my husband, who took all of these pictures (he makes a great Insta-husband!) and my kids, who’ve been willing participants in all of my photoshoots in exchange for a few snacks. It’s a process that involves a lot of teamwork (and a lot of wacky pics.)
Let’s kick things off by introducing the look worn by the queen of the day, me (ha!).
There were a lot of vertically-striped pieces to choose from, but it’s this gorgeous shirt-dress from Vero Moda’s One Fashion line that caught the eye of Olivier and my husband. It’s a simple, light garment, and the tied belt really that accentuates my waist.
Mommy’s striped look: One Fashion dress, $26.98; Round handbag, $24.98; Shoes, $14.98
Esther’s little shirt dress might be my favourite piece from our family look. I made her wear long leggings so she wouldn’t be cold, but I’m excited to replace them by little athletic shorts or jorts in the next few weeks.
Esther’s striped look; Dress shirt, $16.98; Leggings, $6.98 (2 for $12); Sandals, $12.98 (2 for $25)
Oh, and I finally got Oliver to wear the infamous striped shirt that I had chosen for his Easter look, back in April.
PS I am definitely going to stock up on these 2-for-$14 shorts for the summer.
Oliver’s striped look: shirt, $16.98; Shorts, $7.98 (or 2 for $14); Shoes, $14.98 (or 2 for $25)
I’m currently trying to convince my husband to play along and do a father-son look for Father’s Day so I can be the photographer for once. J Will it work? We’ll see in June.
Happy Mother’s Day!
