Grandma & Me Link-Up Number Two

 On the first Monday of every month I've chosen to celebrate Grandmothers!  I do a special link up asking my readers to link up any grandmother related post.  My Grandma and Me posts for now will feature coordinating fashion of me and my granddaughter, but someday I hope to expand on that as Alethea grows older.  I did my first "Grandma and Me" post back in August, then I skipped the month of September because I was on vacation.  You can read all about why I started the link up HERE.

Last September my husband and I took a vacation to the state of Missouri.  We first stopped in Illinois to spend Labor Day weekend with our children.  These photos were taken then when Alethea was two months old.



Mom dressed Alethea up in a pretty pink, lavender, and blue dress with a pink cardigan and hair bow.  I coordinated with Alethea's outfit by wearing a lavender cardigan with a white tee, blue jeans, and a pink bag.


For jewelry I chose white studs,  purple bracelets, and I borrowed a necklace from my daughter.



I also borrowed a cute pair of grey booties from Ashley as well.  


My hot pink cross body bag picks out the hot pink flowers in Alethea's Skirt.


I love how we both have our eyes closed in this picture.  Isn't she the sweetest little thing you ever did see?  I don't get to see her much because my children live six hours away, but when I do, I SOAK up every minute of her:  breathing in her scent, kissing those precious cheeks, and holding her as often as she will let me (she still wants to nurse mom a lot right now).



There are so many "Mommy and Me" clothing websites where you can buy matching mother/daughter clothes.  I hope to take advantage of those when Alethea is old enough to fit into them (they usually don't start until size 2T).  For now, I will just keep on trying to find items in my own closet to coordinate with Alethea's.  I think it's a great idea to just shop your own closet if you want to match outfits with your own daughter/granddaughter:  it certainly saves money!


My sweater I bought in the spring from CJBanks and I last showed it to you HERE.  The tee and jeans are from JCPenney.  The bag is from Charming Charlie's.


Alethea's dress is from Baby Gap (no longer available) and I'm not sure where her mom got the cardigan from.


Here metallic pink moccasins are from Itzy Ritzy but they are no longer available.  Aren't they just so cute though?  I just love little baby feet!


I love the print and all the different colors in Alethea's dress.



And now it's your turn!  Link up any grandmother related post below.  It does not have to be fashion related, any topic or post of you with your grandmother or grandchildren will do. If you don't have a blog, you can also link to Instagram!

Have a Great Day!  Amy

    1. Thank you, but I'm the grandmother. I can see where the confusion might have happened when I referred to my daughter as "mom".

  9. Amy, please don't feel rejected, but I have no granny posts. I haven't even made it to a mom unless cats count. I could link up a post I wrote about my grandpa, though.

  19. Just found you through the Blogging Gradmothers and linked up - although my post isn't about my grandbaby - I don't have many of those and I doubt there'll ever be any matching outfits for us. I linked my mum and me - we're both grandmothers :)

  20. Such beautiful photos! My daughter likes doing matching outfits - she's 8 and is already trying to claim my bags and jewellery as her own! I love Alethea's metallic pink moccasins, so cute. Thanks for linking up!

  21. Hey! I read this post while I was in Germany and tried to link-up and comment but had so many connectivity issues. Just realized that my comment didn't go through.

    Glad to see this post so well received. There is nothing like being a grandmother. Nothing. Tickled to see how you are enjoying your new role. You and Alethea look adorable.
