I love that she still thinking dressing up like Mommy is fun! It’s my favorite thing to do – color coordinating, matching with my kids. I’m kind of a succor for it. It won’t be long before she won’t want to do this, or at least she won’t think its fun but will probably (hopefully) just roll her eyes and humor her mother. But for now she thinks its fun so I’m going take advantage of that.
When I saw that Old Navy had some ‘Mommy and Me’ outfits in their collection I was thrilled and I high-tailed it over there. Old Navy is the perfect place to get your ‘mom-trend style’ on. It stays on trend for the most part, it still carries classic work pieces and its within my affordable range of clothing prices. Who wouldn’t love to shop at a boutique or Nordstorms? I frequently stroll past Lord and Taylor with longing eyes. Walking by all these adorable boutiques where I live, staring longingly (never mind they almost never carry clothing in my size!) almost always make me sad. But one quick trip over to Old Navy with their bright colors, great sizing, and affordable price tags and all is well with the world. Shop the looks down below!
Old Navy, you missed a great opportunity with this mother/daughter line of clothing! It proved to be kind of a frustrating shopping trip because the girls/baby sections is so far away from the women’s section. None of the collection was grouped together and there was no cheat sheet board or poster advertising. I heard later from some friends of mine that they too starting taking clothing off the racks and hauling it back and forth between the sections. I probably would have bought more had it been easier to match the stuff together. So mentally prepare yourself when you go in the store. And no, going online won’t save you any stress. It would also have been even more amazing, and would have sucked more of us mom’s in, if there had been more identical matches! We mom’s love that kinda stuff!! But, I got some adorable clothing and matchy pictures with my daughter…so, it was a win!
