As a kid, I remember window shopping women’s outfits I was dying to fit into, and wishing I could be bigger and older; now I wish for the opposite, oh how the tables have turned! I now see my 7 year old sister longing for the same thing; anything I wear, she wants to wear and anything I do, she wants to do. The mini me dressing trend is not a new concept but, with the rise of social media, you often see women and their daughters looking just alike striking a pose in their coordinating outfits on Instagram or Facebook. Matching mommy and me (or in my case, sister and me) outfits can be great for pictures or a fun way to bond for a girls day out. While LaBella Flora doesn’t sell women’s clothing, we have found options for mom at some fabulous retailers that coordinate with several of our pieces. Everyone will be asking where you ladies found your outfits!
Coordinating tops are a great way to get the mini me look while still keeping your looks unique.
Blue jean baby! These denim tank tops are a great summer item, and right on trend for 2016. Pair with a darker denim or white bottoms for a clean look. Mom’s version is Vince Camuto from Nordstrom, her style is Kalliope Kids. A subtle print on her top makes the look youthful, while mom’s is solid with a chic pocket and simple silhouette.
These styles from Miss Me are a dead ringer for each other! The ombre sleeveless plaid top features wooden buttons and lace at the shoulders. Mom’s style, from Von Maur, has some extra bling with rhinestones on the chest. Style this top with some awesome Miss Me cut off shorts and you two will be quite the pair!
Another pairing from Miss Me! This airy style would be the perfect top for a day at the beach! Mom’s style, found at Von Maur, features a lightweight fabric with open shoulders and trendy print front and center. The mini me version has the same print on a lightweight, short sleeve top with fringe dangling playfully along the hem. I love this look with the Joyfolie Luciana sandal for the ultimate casual cool outfit.
I have mentioned before how much I LOVE the jumpsuit, romper trend; one easy piece and you’re done! These coordinating outfits will make dressing both of you a snap.
Anthropologie is a great resource for unique casual items and this jumpsuit is no exception. An all-over print and soft fabric make this perfect for an evening out; she can join in on the fun in a jumpsuit from Hannah Banana. A similar all-over print covers this jumpsuit while lace on the front and the back of the bodice make this feminine and age appropriate. Even better… Hers is now on sale!
White is absolutely a summer classic. These rompers are the epitome of summertime fresh! Oversized eyelet style lace creates a look that’s perfect for family photos or summer party. Mom’s romper is found at Nordstrom, and the coordinating daughter romper is from Halabaloo.

Navy, white, and lace doesn’t get more summer appropriate! You’ll be country club bound in these frocks! Mom’s beautiful dress can be found at John Lewis, and features wide navy and white lace stripes in a flattering knee-length structured shape.
