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
