WWW 3/3-4: My daughter inherited the hypermatchy gene!

These two outfits were inspired by my daughter. I woke up on Sunday to find her dressed all in dots! She had picked out her own outfit and put it on herself. She had on a red polka dot dress with matching red polka dot headband and blue polka dot leggings. She even wore polka dot socks! So cute! So I decided to match her matchy matchy outfit and go with a polka dot theme too, with polka dot shirt, polka dot skirt, polka dot bracelet, polka dot necklace, and typewriter bag with polka dot keys (and polka dot socks and polka dot iPhone too). I was on call and working that weekend. It was so busy that these pics were taken when I got back home right before their bath and bedtime. The pics accurately reflect the chaos and rapid swirl of emotions that is my life with young kids. First DD is "typing" on my bag. Then DS1 is simultaneously bugging DS2 and trying to grab the stuffed llama from DD. Then they're hugging sweetly. Then DD is smiling because she's in the middle, then suddenly pouty because DS1 wanted to be in the middle. And DS2 is chewing on my stethoscope (fortunately I had cleaned it before he grabbed it out of my purse!)

She liked the outfit so much she wore it again the next day for school. That morning she said, "Mommy, you have to wear a headband that matches your dress, like me." So I took up her challenge and wore a chevron skirt with chevron headband, chevron bracelet and pointy black shoes. (I couldn't decide between Ms. Scarlet and the typewriter bag). So fun that I was inspired by my DD and that she has inherited the hypermatchy gene from me! I don't think I was ever that coordinated as a kid!

    When you mentioned so many polka dots in your post, I was a bit skeptic! But boy ... The outfit looks like something out of a fashion magazine!! Just brilliant!! The pattern mixing is so cohesive and fun! Love your second outfit too. How do you even manage to find matchy stuff?! Wow.

    And your kids are so sweet I could eat them up!!! DD is so adorable in the polka dots with pout and all! You all are such a cute looking family :)

    So cute, I don't trend to hypermatchy myself, but I like seeing it on others!

  • replied 5 years ago

    I like matchy-matchy.  You are one of my "favorites" to watch.  I especially love all of your purses.

  • fuzzylogic replied 5 years ago

    Oh, that chevron is so stylish! And the handbag so fun! ('Typing on your handbag' makes so much more sense with the pics....! of course they would!! Only sensible!)

    Such a super cute family!  You all look spectacular.

  • Sara L. replied 5 years ago

    Your kids are so cute!  I love DD's polka dot outfit.  I think you look great in both these outfits.  The black and white is very soothing and tones down the hectic matchiness of your outfits (which I love, don't get me wrong).

  • rachylou replied 5 years ago

    The matching headband and skirt is so great! I love it.

    Btw, did y'all know polka dots are flamenco?

  • gryffin replied 5 years ago

    Goldenpig - you and your kids, just to die for adorable!!  Clearly the fasion gene is alive and well!!  So cute littles, so elegant you!!  Plus your kiddos are so delicious!!  I miss that age!!

  • Inge replied 5 years ago

    Oh Natalie, that is just too precious for words. And your sweet daughter has inherited the style gene from you, that's for sure.

  • Day Vies replied 5 years ago

    Natalie that purse is SO cute. It goes so well with black and white outfits whether dots or zigzags. DD will do just fine. I don't think it's hypermatchy at all. Sure its repeating a theme but the charm comes from the fact that the dots vary in size and in some cases color. I think its fabulous but have not dared try it myself. I'm still recovering from my fear of print -- simply adding more print to my wardrobe still requires conscious effort.

    I'm en route back home after a 5 day business trip. Missing my little ones to say the least. Seeing your brood has warmed my heart. The dots are just the icing on the cake. Thank you for the warm fuzzies.

  • anne replied 5 years ago

    Oh I can so relate to the constant movement and activity of 3 children, They are absolutely adorable and so are your outfits!

  • deb replied 5 years ago

    So darn cute!!! The bathtub pic is priceless.

  • Aubergine replied 5 years ago

    All the kid pictures are so much fun! The polka dots look great too -- I think the differences in scale and material really keep it interesting instead of potentially cutesy.
