Mommy & Me

Does anyone else remember The Harts? Which I believe is the name of the paper doll family where the mother and daughter dressed alike... I couldn't find any Google Images or references after 5 minutes of copious searching, but trust it was a thing that existed because I distinctly remember playing with the whole paper doll family. My point being, the concept of mommy & daughter matching outfits has been on my style radar for quite some time...

Of course these dresses are not exact replicas of each other. Baby girl's striped number comes from Old Navy, while my frock is from Iconic Luxe via Amazon. But both are blue and white, with horizontal stripes in the yoke/bodice, and vertical stripes in the skirt. 

Here are some additional shots with a different background... 

From both a functional and style perspective this is an almost perfect "Mom" dress. It fits, flatters, and covers as I bend, squat, and interact with baby girl:

The midi-length keeps my backside and thighs covered, the scoopneck keeps my cleavage under control, and the pockets are very handy for tissues, cellphone, pincones, you name it! Plus 💓💓stripes!

AND, we are #twinning with Kathy & that other Charlotte..👸

For approximately 19 months I've been searching for the perfect "mom" dress with mixed results. What works for me, as a mom, is fashion, function, a flattering fit, and coverage. I had been looking at my usual go-to retailers for some sort of schmatta to throw on, but not feel like a slob, while being able to mother without fear of exposing my jiggling bits. Not that one can't expose one's bits if one so chooses to, but for me, I'd much rather not.😜

Coming up short (literally in some cases) I decided to do a straight-up search for midi-dress with pockets, and came upon a variety of picks on Amazon. I was able to further filter my search by size and price to find this gem! My only concern is that the tag says to handwash, and Momma's got no time for that! 

Overall, I'm pleased as punch with my new striped mom dress and can't wait to throw it on, when I'm in full mom mood and want to look like I'm wearing and outfit, not just a sack.
