When Jason and I first decided we were going to have children, I never imagined that we have two beautiful girls and one precious boy. We didn’t plan to have three, it sort of all just happened, and you know what, we couldn’t be happier.
Five days of the week, while Ryder is in school, the girls and I usually spend our mornings together, playing with dolls or dressing up in their princess costumes. Now that the weather has finally improved, we spend lots of hours in the playgrounds, until its lunch time or nap time. I’ve been cherishing our times together because come September, Siella will in Pre K during our morning play sessions.
There’s something to be said for the bond that mothers and daughters share. As they grow older, our time together reminds me of the relationship I have with my mother and sister, and hope our bond only continues to grow. Siella already seems to share a passion for fashion with me, and notices how I dress, sometimes even complimenting outfits on others, when we’re out. She dresses herself everyday, and actually enjoys when she and Gemma sport matching outfits. The other day, I happened to pick up matching summer shoes for the 3 of us, and I couldn’t believe how psyched she was to wear the same thing as her mommy.
With Mother’s Day approaching, I thought it would be fun to coordinate our outfits, so I turned to H&M, because I adore their new spring line, which happens to consist of quite a few mommy and me outfits.
Siella came with me on a little shopping spree, and she picked out things all by herself. She was so proud when she went up to the register and told the salesperson she will be matching her mom and sister. It was such a fun outing for us, and a mommy and me afternoon that I hope she’ll always remember.
The girls are wearing H&M’s cotton chambray dress with hot pink embroidery. The short butterfly sleeves, pockets at front, and buttons at back of neck give it the perfect touch of summer chic. For my dress, Siella chose this short patterned dress with tie back. I am usually a long maxi dress girl, but I went outside my comfort zone and listened to my little fashionista daughter. The printed pattern compliments the girls’ dresses, and perfectly matches their embroidered pops of pink.
We chose more coordinating outfits that afternoon that I can’t wait to share with all of you, especially for Mother’s Day, this Sunday.
