WIW 7/21 Me and my mini-me twin: Striped peplum top, floral jeans and red quilted purse

I've been dying to do a copycat of DD's outfit ever since I bought it for her at H&M: a navy and white striped peplum top, floral jeans, and navy cardigan. I finally found a pair of floral jeans and a striped peplum top that would work, although in a black and white version. And now that we have matching red quilted purses, it's a perfect match! We're both wearing red ballet flats too. So much fun dressing up in matching outfits with DD, my little mini-me. She really liked it too! And as a bonus, I dressed DS1 and DS2 in matching orange striped hoodies too. Even DH matched the boys a bit with his orange jacket! We went to swimming lessons and then to the mall. I went to Nordstrom to try on the Lafayette 148 tweed skirt (you can see it in #5) in a smaller size, but didn't end up getting it because DH called it a loincloth, and then said it looked like one of those office carpets or doormats that you wipe your feet on. He hated it so much I had to let it go. Haha, I concede his point, though!

Black WHBM cardigan, J Crew striped peplum top, WHBM floral pants, Chanel red purse, WHBM silver bracelet, Stuart Weitzman red ballet flats. DD in H&M clothes and Forever 21 red purse. DS1 & DS2 in Tea collection.

    Hehe, I know exactly where you were because I was there yesterday. :)

    Your whole family is too cute.  Love both yours/DD's matchy matchy outfits and the matchy-matchy outfits for the boys/men in the family as well.

    Photo #4 is incredible - you should frame it.

    You have such a beautiful family and such a dazzling smile. I'm chuckling at the loin cloth comment.
    This pattern mixing is very smart, YLF, both of you.

    My head is about to explode from all of the cuteness :) and I mean that in the most complimentary way! The baby is getting so big! How fun that you and your daughter are able to dress alike and look so terrific. I missed the post about her getting a red quilted bag.

    Super cute!  I love all your matching stripes!

    Your post made me break out into big smile :) You and DD look sooo cute together. I like your black and white floral pants Natalie. They play well with the top. I have never done pattern mixing and each time I see you do it I am given fresh inspiration to try it myself.

    I like that the black and white makes your outfit more sophisticated yet still fun.

    Your post made me smile.  You and daughter look fab in strips and floral, in fact the whole family looks great.

  • CocoLion replied 6 years ago

    Yes, I know where your were too!  Love all of the pictures and you and DD look so happy in matching outfits.  Your DH's take on the skirt cracked me up... I'm not sure which was worse, the loincloth or the office mat ... but together, well, let's just say DH has poison-eyed me on that kind of skirt forever!

    So cute!  I love all the matching outfits.  My kids dress themselves nowadays so I can't get them to match anymore.

    You have the most adorable family & those matching outfits are so much fabness. All of that & a Chanel bag! I missed you getting that. I remember you considering it. Good choice. Given the chance I would have chosen thesame thing, well different colour perhaps but YKWIM.

    Omg, cutest family EVER. Love it all.

  • Debra replied 6 years ago

    I'm fainting over all the cute matchy-ness. LOVE.

    Natalie, what impresses me most about your pictures featuring kiddos is that you look like such a happy mom. Your children are very lucky!

    Late to the game but you and DD are too cute for words! I love how you have put together a sophisticated floral and stripe combo and hers is just so adorable :) Great great great bag! I am glad you found your special birthday present.
