I’m not one of those moms.
You know those moms.
Those moms who ooooooo and ahhhhh over their kids every single minute of every day. Those moms who want to spend every waking moment they can with their kids. The ones who post a new picture of their kid on Facebook every single day and often multiple times a day.
I’m not that mom.
I’m not judging that mom. I’m just not that mom. I love spending time with the Circus – don’t get me wrong. But if I were to spend 24/7 with that child, we would both be carted off to the asylum when the cops showed up. I would probably be intoxicated as well.
That being said, the Circus and I are one of those moms and daughters who do, on occasion, dress alike.
It all started a couple years back when I bought us matching green palm print jumpsuits. Now, everytime I buy a new piece of clothing, the Circus says, “Can I get one like that too?”
We don’t match every day. Hell, we don’t match once a month. We’re more on a bi-monthly or quarterly basis of matching. I’d have to make fun of myself if we matched more than that. And we don’t do cheesy matching outfits either. I’d drop dead and consider myself a complete failure if she ever asked me to wear matching shift dresses and cardigans.
Here are some of our favorite kinds of Mommy and Me Outfits – of the non-cardigan variety. 😉

Mommy and Me Outfits
Mommy and Me Rocker Outfit
Obviously, this is my favorite, as I proclaimed my love of band tees last week. I snagged the Circus that KISS t-shirt a couple weeks back – it’s $7, so a no-brainer for me. My KISS t-shirt is different than the one pictured above, but I ordered that same style in the Rolling Stones and Guns ‘N Roses version and love it. The shirts are really soft and are a little longer than usual, so you can easily tuck them in if you want to. I also love that they are sleeveless for summer. I did size up one on those t-shirts though as they are junior sizes. And did I mention those sleeveless rocker tees are less than $15?! I went on the hunt for a good pair of distressed shorts that weren’t also daisy dukes and found these. They are a good length – not to short, not too long and very comfy. I’ve also got those red sandals for myself. 😉
Chambray Dresses + Cowboy Boots
We are having family photos taken in a few days and these are the outfits I’m planning on the Circus and I wearing. I got lucky enough to have a girl who loves her red cowboy boots just as much as I love mine. The funny thing about this whole ensemble is that my chambray dress is actually cheaper than her’s! Fit tip: For the women’s chambray dress, I sized up one.
Navy Romper + Gold Sandals
Jumpsuits and rompers are my jam during the spring and summer. I don’t care how many jumpsuits I already have – I want more. I’m always on the hunt for great ones. I just picked up a fantastic red one the other day and when I modeled it for Grunt Labor, he asked if I was planning a trip to Mexico. Well maybe I will. The Circus saw me in it and said I should wear it all the time and then of course, asked for her own. I wasn’t able to find a cute red little girl’s romper or jumpsuit to coordinate with mine, but I do have a navy romper similar to the one above and found this cute little girl’s version. Pair it with gold sandals and well, you’re golden. 😉 I would advise sizing up on the women’s romper as it is a junior size.
