A word on matchy-matchy wardrobes!

As you know from pictures I have shared, I like to dress my boys in matchy-matchy cuteness from time to time.

Contrary to popular belief this is not in fact all. the. time. but it is often when there is a function or an occasion to celebrate. I like coordination and some outfits are just too cute to pass up for the both of them. I have to admit I get a bit of a high when I walk into a store that has 2 for $20 deals or a fab new line at Gymboree with sizing to fit both my boys!

I often have people commenting on the boys wardrobe and the fact that they are the same and or are not in fact twins, etc. - and YES I am well aware of this, but I like to think that I will only be able to do things like this for such a short period of time before they are telling me what they will and will not wear - so I am going to enjoy it while it lasts.

I also like to do it for other practical reasons to... like:

  • if we go to a crowded area, its not difficult to spot two kids wearing the same thing; OR
  • I only have to tell PC once how to dress them for an outting (while I finish getting beautiful); OR
  • if god forbid someone was to ever try to take them... I or a complete stranger could immediately tell the police what they were wearing (because they were just so darn cute in their matchy-matchy outfits)!
See... its not all about fashion all the time, its practical too!

You boys are soooooooo cute in their matching wardrobes - I say keep it up while you can. I have a boy and a girl and I try to coordinate them often but its not as easy as it is when you have two or three of the same gender. But I do think when they are as cute as your boys it really doesn't matter how you dress them!
