At the end of February I went to Illinois to visit my children and grandchildren for a week. We did a lot of shopping while I was there because I was looking for items for my guest room renovation. On one of our shopping trips, Alethea and I wore matching outfits. I know these pieces look very similar, but I did not buy them as a set from a "Mommy and Me" store. I just got lucky and found very similar items.
Alethea's outfit came as a 3-piece from Macy's. It's is by Carters.
If you need a cute set for a baby girl, it's on sale right now, for only $14.43 but hurry, they are almost sold out!
The pants are a.n.a Skinny Fit Jeggings. They are super comfortable, and I love the slanted zipper pockets. I found my a.n.a 3/4 Sleeve Round Floral Lace Up Ruffle Blouse at JCP on a clearance rack for only $10.59 with coupon! When I found it I thought I won the lottery because it was almost an exact match to Alethea's shirt.
I bought the top just so I could match Alethea but I ended up really liking it and wore it three times during my week in Illinois. It has so many nice details: the ruffle sleeves, the lace up neckline, and the fabric is very thin so it's cool and comfortable for me.
I did wear a camisole underneath because it's slightly see-thru and a little low cut for my taste.
I wore my new Lace-Up Combat Boots from Charlotte Russe. They are so comfortable and were perfect for all the walking we did all week long!
When they stayed on her feet, Alethea wore these cute grey shoes I bought her for Christmas from Amazon.
Alethea and I also wore matching white beanies! I bought Alethea's beanie from Macy's; mine is years old and I'm not sure where I got it from.
Alethea is starting to pull herself up and stand a bit on her own; but you really have to watch her because she can quickly lose her balance and topple over.
Alethea is such a joyful baby! She loves people, and always has a beautiful smile ready to share. And she is so smart too! I know I'm a bit biased, but I called her "Genius Baby" all week because I was so awestruck with her intellect!
Alethea is not use to chasing all over town all day, so she fell fast asleep in her stroller while we shopped. I love the expression on her face in the picture below. It looks like she is concentrating on something in her sleep.
This is my outfit without the vest. It was very warm in Chicago (well, warm to this Wisconsin gal! It was between 40 and 50 degrees most days), so I only usually wore the vest outside.
It was so wonderful to spend a full week with my granddaughter and get reacquainted with her. The last time I saw her was Christmas. I don't think she remembered me, but we very quickly bonded in the short time I was there. She seemed to really, really like me. I kept asking Ashley if she was like this with everyone, and Ashley said "She's always friendly, but I think she likes you a lot because you like her so much!" It's as if she just knew how much I loved and adored her!
Have a Great Day! Amy

Ah! So adorable!ReplyDelete
How cute!! We have 4 grandsons and I wouldn't want to dress like a baseball/football/spiderman/superman. I can't believe you found outfits that almost matched perfectly.ReplyDelete
Thanks Marisa! haha! I'm lucky I got a granddaughter right away, although I do hope to do this series with grandsons too. I have seen lots of "Mommy and Me" fashion posts with boys. Obviously they don't wear exact outfits like the moms would wear with their granddaughters; they just wear coordinating outfits.Delete
So cute! I especially love that first picture in the hats! You two are a cute pair.ReplyDelete

How do you find all of these cute matching outfits? These pictures put a smile on my face! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks Shauna! It's different every time. For this outfit I already owned the vest and I spotted Alethea's 3 piece outfit in Macy's. I thought "That would go great with my vest". So then all I had to do was find a top and pants for myself to match Alethe'as combo.Delete
They do know how much we adore them don't they. Althea is a beautiful, happy baby and you two look just as cute as can be together!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much! Yes, I think Alethea knows how much I adore her!Delete
