Mommy and Me Fashion — Summer Outfit Picks for Moms and their Littles

Mommy and me fashion collections from Budget Fashionista

Mother’s Day may have come and gone, but dressing little ones up to match Mom is ‘aww’-inducing year round. Coordinated collections and designer collaborations are cropping up everywhere, making it easier than ever to nail your next mommy and me fashion photo op. Whether you’re a new mom, excited to get in on the action, or you’ve been in the Mom game for a while, you have options, from both budget-friendly fashion fashion labels to higher-end indie names.

Mommy-and-me styles are entering a trend-forward heyday, so we’ve got a head start on some of the chicest options available. Check out these pretty little pairings, then head out and get your hands on some of your own. After all, your little one won’t be this small forever. And with your genes, she’ll prefer to be the stylist before you know it.

Splurge-worthy: Little Ref Collection

Little babes can get blogger style now, thanks to cult-fave Reformation and its collection of sweet summer dresses. Made from the same dead-stock fabrics you know and love, Little Ref fills her closet with tiny versions of the brand’s infamous must-haves.

Budget-Friendly Mommy and Me Fashion

The launch of Victoria Beckham’s Target collaboration was highly anticipated, and now that the dust has settled, you can score these charming pieces on clearance! Choose to be total twinsies with matching ensembles or mix and match different shades and prints for a look that’s cute and coordinated, but not an exact mirror image.

Old Navy

Who are we kidding? Minis grow out of their outfits faster than the season changes. If you don’t want to spend too much on something that will only fit her for a few months, trusty chains like Old Navy have you covered. The store’s comfy cotton tops and dresses come in festive prints at price points that will have your bank account sitting pretty.

So, go ahead, get in on the mommy and me trend. And remember to snap some pics — they’ll earn tons of likes on social, and you can use them later in life to embarrass your daughter!
