Before your daughter was born, you might have said, ‘I’ll never be that mum who walks around in a cutesy matching outfit with my daughter’. But as soon as your beautiful little girl burst onto the scene (or even when you found out you were having a little girl), suddenly that all went flying out the window. Because twinning with your mini-me isn’t naff or silly. It’s absolutely precious.
We’re not the only ones who think so. You’ve probably seen these incredible photos of Kate Hudson with her baby girl, Rani, gorgeously matching in Boho tunics.
Or this photo of Beyoncé and daughter Blue Ivy loving life in front of the Eiffel Tower.
Or even this one of Pink with her daughter Willow (and husband Corey) in their twinned suits and ties.
But mummy and me outfits aren’t only for the rich and famous. We love them here in Australia, too, for pregnancy and baby announcements, for special holidays and even for wearing down to the local farmer’s market (or, let’s be honest, the local Woolies!).
Matching mum and daughter outfits look cute, but are also just so fun to wear, for both mum and daughter (when they’re old enough to have an opinion, of course!). So, we’ve pulled together some of our most precious and fun matching mum and daughter clothes. After all, little girls always want to be just like their mums (and there will never be a more Instgrammable moment)!
'Mama' Bloom Tee + 'Mini' Seeding Onesie
Created through a local collaboration with a Brisbane-based graphic artist, the 'Mama' Bloom T-shirt and 'Mini' Seedling Onesie is a simple, fun and eminently wearable mummy and me outfit featuring delicate flower designs and a flowing ‘Mama’ and ‘Mini’ script. And there’s a lovely story behind these beautiful designs. The flower graphics highlight how you’ve come into ‘full bloom’ since becoming a mother. While your child is your seedling – at the start of her life, but destined to someday bloom just as you do.
We love these shirts for a pregnancy announcement – mum-to-be wearing her t-shirt and holding up the onesie – and for the follow-up baby announcement – with both mum and bub wearing the matching outfits. Such a simple, yet beautiful way to commemorate the birth of your new little girl.
Mum’s shirt can also be worn while pregnant, tied in a knot above the bump, classically paired with a pleated skirt and white sneakers. And keep an eye out for new products in this line that will include a breastfeeding-friendly top and child-sized t-shirts, so you can keep twinning into the future.
‘Sunday’ is our new Maive & Bo style and we’re already so enamoured with it. From the slightly puffed sleeves, to the generous V-neck to the flattering shirred waistband, the Sunday Maternity & Nursing Dress in Posey is a sweet and whimsical nod to the Sunday dress of yesteryear.
Luckily for us, this gorgeous peasant-style midi dress remains beautifully on-trend even today. Designed to wear during and after pregnancy, it’s fitted with button-down nursing access, and a soft structure so you feel comfortable and beautiful during every stage of your pregnancy and breastfeeding journey.
But that’s not all! Your baby girl can look just like mum in her very own Sunday Baby Bloomers in Posey as well. In sizes ranging from 0 to 12 months, these mummy and me outfits would make the most memorable mother’s day photographs.
Dress them up with ballerina flats, a statement necklace and a bow in bub’s hair and get your partner to snap some shots of you and your mini-me at your family mother’s day lunch. Or dress the look down with thongs, a sun hat and some delicate, layered necklaces and hit the local park for a casual picnic bub in arms.
Whatever you do, you’ll look and feel amazing in our Maive & Bo matching mum and daughter clothes.
