Mommy and me matching outfits are always fun, cute, and super fun to shop for. When scrolling through my feed, I see a lot of mommy and me outfits for mothers and their daughters, and then I occasionally see a sprinkle of matching outfits with mothers and their sons. It’s pretty apparent that it is a lot simpler to find matching outfits for mothers and daughters, but it’s not impossible to find matching or complimenting outfits between a mother and son. And as Carter gets older, I have actually been able to find more outfits where we can complement each other since there is a wide array of toddler clothes for boys in comparison to baby clothes for boys.

To be completely honest with you, I always saw myself as a boy mom. Whenever my husband and I had talked about starting our family, I let him know that we are going to have all boys because that’s just what it seems that I’m fated to be. I mean, I don’t know what the future holds for me, but I have this deep feeling that I’m going to have all boys and I’m not complaining about it.
As a mom of a boy, I haven’t had to sacrifice my personal style to create mommy and me fall looks that are either matchy-matchy or just complimenting. Instead, I found out that my casual style actually is feminine but still has this neutral aspect to it that allows me to match my son.
Whenever I create a matching outfit with him, I always get compliments on how we look, and on Instagram, I get questions on how I was able to create this look without shopping for exact matching sets. I’m not going to tell you that it’s super easy to jump online and find matching outfits, you have to have patience, but it is absolutely possible.
My first tip on creating looks is to start shopping for your child first. Though there are a lot of various styles for toddlers, their clothes are still limited and usually include a lot of characters and child graphics which you won’t often see on adult clothes. Pick out pieces that you look at and say ‘I would wear something like this if it were in my size.” When you’ve gathered a few pieces that make you feel that way, it’s time for you to go shopping.
Look in-store or search online for pieces that match or compliment your child’s look. Remember, you don’t have to be exact and sometimes just finding outfits that look similar in the same color palette or have the same graphic in some aspect work great as well.
