Before I was a mom, I never really imagined myself coordinating the entire family in one print. I'll admit I was even a little judge-y about those who did. (Hey, motherhood teaches you a lot, including not judging others because we are all doing the best we can in whatever way is best for us). I also naively thought that matching looks were reserved for girl moms since they could look like a mini version of yourself. So when I found out my first was a boy, I never thought I'd be looking into matching outfits.
That quickly changed. A mix of my style not being particularly feminine and my son loving super bright colors (just like I do) meant that I was coordinating our looks before I could even notice what I was doing.
Now, with three kids under 3, I am all about matching my family—yes, that includes my partner, who admittedly is way more into it than I am most of the time. It's fun, not limited to one gender, and it makes family photos so much more memorable (still don't know how to make everyone look at the camera at the same time, send me tips!).
Here are my favorite mama and mini matching looks:
These limited edition slip-ons are part of a collection created with the whole family in mind. Perfect for a picnic, apple picking in the fall, or just hanging around the house, these classic shoes are made of 100% cotton and earth-friendly EVA soles. You can choose between gingham with a watercolor apple or all apples everywhere.
The mini version of the classic TOMS comes with velcro to make our lives easier, mama. These slip-ons come in the apple print as part of the limited edition collab with Once Upon A Farm. They have a rubber outsole for extra grip when running around.
TOMS thought of the entire family when designing this collection, including tiny adorable alpargatas for the youngest minis of the family. The red shoes come with a tiny leaf apliqué that is just so subtle and cute.
I love how sweet and delicate this mama and mini bracelet set is. And still, they're made from hypoallergenic, lead-free, and tarnish-resistant pure stainless steel with a thick 18K gold overlay making it durable enough to stand up to everyday wear.
This dress is so flowy and flattering, it has turned into my first summer postpartum staple. I'm a fan of cacti so the print is such a hit with us, it makes the piece even more fun!
Babies and toddlers look adorable in button up shirts and this one will keep them cool during the hot summer days. Plus, they are totally genderless so you can match your entire family in this print.
Matching pajamas were my first family coordination investment. Posh Peanut's fabrics are so soft you won't want to take these off, ever.
Who said dads can't join the fun? These PJs are great for a family photo on a lazy Sunday morning.
My twins wore Posh Peanut outfits at the hospital and all the nurses complimented them on their looks. Plus, like I mentioned, the fabrics are so soft it made me feel super comfortable about their newborn skin being hugged by these.
Every day is a pajama party these days. I love the summery print of these classic jammies for mamas. The luxe cotton is super breathable and the tapered leg pants make them even more flattering.
With the added ruffle collar and adorable little buttons, twinning with your little one calls for all the photos. As a bonus, these heirloom quality pajamas are sure to last through multiple kiddos.
To say I'm obsessed with these bracelets is an understatement. Since I got them I have not taken them off (which also is proof of how durable they are!) and I've gotten so many compliments from other moms. I went with the rainbow colors because they are more playful and also because my twins are rainbow babies. These bracelets remind me of the journey that got us here.
The bracelets for minis come in baby and child sizes. I have the baby ones, but my girls only wear them for photo shoots since the small beads are not recommended for infants. There's something so heartwarming about little babies wearing bracelets, though. Plus, it makes it a bit easier to recognize them (hello, identical twins!) which is why I'm looking forward to getting the child-sized ones soon.
I cannot even describe how flattering this skirt is. Created by a mom with the most awesome style, this collection of mama and mini is playful and chic. The bunny print is perfect for a matching Easter outfit. The skirt is easy to dress up with a blouse or dress down with a plain white t-shirt for school pick-ups.
This mini dress is so adorable, I cannot get enough of it. It has puff sleeves to make it more playful.
The famous Instagram denim jacket had to be included. Every single time I wear it, people stop me to ask me about it. This was one of the first matching items I got with my son and it's such good quality and style that I wear it even when I don't have him in tow so everyone can take note of my most precious job title.
The "Babe" denim jacket is perfect for all your little ones. My son loved wearing his (until he outgrew it, now we need a new one!) in the spring and the denim is stretchy enough that it didn't get in his way during play.
Not all matching outfits need to be fancy, and that's why I love this sweat set for lazy pandemic Sundays. They sell out fast so make sure to have an alert in your calendar for the next restock.
Trust me on this one: There's nothing cuter than a tiny baby wearing sweat pants. How do I know? I dressed mine in these and it was just too much. They are super high-quality and cozy and will keep your babies looking and feeling fab.
What a better way to make an outfit more fun than to wear these rainbow checkered Vans? Pair them with jeans and a white t-shirt and you are ready to go. Plus, the colorful twist to the classic slip-ons makes them more kid-friendly.
Tiny shoes are adorable, tiny matching shoes even more so. These come in sizes ranging from baby, toddler to child so everyone in the family can get in on the action.
Hear me out, you need these socks. Beyond matching with your family, these are so so so comfortable you will never want to take them off, I say as I type on day 3 of wearing them.
The baby and toddler version come with grippy soles to avoid spills.
This high-quality Spanish brand makes the most stylish and colorful sweaters and has become an Instagram favorite. The prices are a bit steep, but they have occasional sales that make them worth buying since they will last forever.
Some of their styles come in mini sizes, too. Their products require a little more care than other children's clothes but are made to last so they can be passed down to younger siblings.
I became a huge fan of Primary when my son was an infant because of their affordable prices, genderless and basic pieces. I was particularly into their rainbow collection and so when they launched adult shirts in rainbows I had to have them.
My husband is obsessed with his Primary t-shirt and loves that he can match with our daughters on a regular day, without any fancy event taking place (like holidays).
With a unisex cut and extensive sizing, this shirt is great for matching the entire family. Primary's garments are so durable they can withstand the fun of day care or school.
These flats are not only stylish, but so comfortable. It's one of the brand's first feminine cut shoes, which will make trips to the sandbox easy and stylish. Easy to clean and super simple to put on hands-free when you are carrying little ones in your arms.
NATIVE shoes are a classic for children. They can be worn in and out of the water, and are perfect for running on the sand and jumping in and out of puddles.
Tie-dye is the trend this summer and even though school is out, it doesn't mean you can't rock this backpack as a diaper bag or as a family bag for outings.
Once school is back in session, your mini can match you with this awesome lunchbox that is super on trend.
I've already mentioned how awesome this swimsuit is for postpartum bodies, but it comes with the added benefit that the prints are available to match the entire family.
This SPF rash guard is both adorable and also useful in keeping little one's skin protected from the sun. And it's easy to remove once they are done splashing around in the water.
My husband has been wearing these non-stop because they are way cooler (and comfier) than his regular board shorts.
This dress is stunning. I feel like words won't do it justice. Once you put it on, the excellent quality and attention to detail are obvious. It's seriously flattering and makes the perfect summer dress. I also love that it has the same name as one of my twins!
The mini version is equally stunning! It's made of 100% cotton so it's super soft on delicate skin and also flowy enough for play.
These pants are in the same tone as the mama and girl dresses, allowing little boys to join in the matching fun. My toddler has worn them a ton (even playing in the mud with them, oops) and they've shown no signs of wear and tear.
OshKosh B'gosh is launching this limited edition collection of overalls for the entire family. They are vintage-inspired and range in sizes from dad, mama, toddler to babies.
