If you follow along on Instagram you will know how much I love dressing Pollyanna and Alfie in matching outfits to myself or to Adam.
Having wardrobes that match and flow makes getting ready so much easier.
There are lots of online retailers offering mini me outfits so you and your little can wear the exact same outfit. The choice has got a lot better over the years.
WHERE TO SHOP
Knowing the right places to start shopping cuts down the amount of time you will spend searching the web.
For me I know I will always find matching/similar outfits at H&M, Zara or River Island.
The first thing I do is have a scroll through the website. I’ll start with the kids section because it doesn’t tend to be as large.
I will first look for Pollyanna, so go to the girls section but then put in her size. This is key.
There is no point scrolling through six pages of items, finding something, and trying to match only to get to the checkout and Pollyanna’s item isn’t in stock in her size.
So choose the size, look through the items with an open mind.
When you see something you like open it in a new tab.
Then I’ll head over to the boys section, enter Alfie’s size and search.
Keeping in mind the items I have seen and liked and opened in a new tab.
Will they match any of those? Are they similar colours?
And do the same, open the items up in a new tab.
You’ll end up with lots of tabs but they are your friend and will make your life so much easier.
Finally it’s time to search for you. Follow the tab rule. Keeping In mind what you have seen for the littles.
Sometimes, I may notice that there is an exact mini me option in something I never tabbed in girls or boys so may go back to save it.
Now it’s time to condense those tabs down, get rid of them.
I may move them around, to get an idea of my item and the mini’s next to each other.
Checking that sizes are in stock before I close down items that have not made the cut.
IT DOESN’T HAVE TO MATCH
Try to remember it doesn’t always have to match exactly either.
Sometimes a colour coordinated outfit can look just as great.
Think florals or in this case denim.
I stuck with Denim and white and kept Pollyanna and me in trainers.
SIBLINGS CAN MATCH
Trying to find three or more matching outfits can be difficult but you could start by matching the siblings at least.
