I think that no matter how old your kids are, one of the best things about having them is being able to dress them the way you want to. That, of course, until they reach that age where they’ll only go out as Superman or Elsa, or when they reach their teens and then they’re not really yours anymore, so you don’t get to decide. But still, all the way up to that point, it’s just the peak of the deal to wear matching clothes with them, to show everyone they’re yours. That’s one of the reasons I always thought I would have a girl, imagining twinning with her in matching dresses and envisioning a smaller, and more adorable version of myself. Ah, needless to say that didn’t happen and now I’m the happiest about it!
But it was a boy, and my disappointment was met when I realised that 80% of the shelves in stores are dedicated to girls – and so are matching outfits. Buuuut then there are brands like Australian-based Jerri Jones that change the rules. Our top favourite: the Melbourne sweatshirts that come in sizes for moms and kids, and that are just soooo comfy and perfect to mix with anything- from floral dresses to jogging pants. and And here we are being all matchy matchy and I’m feeling like the best power mom and would literally not want him to be a girl ever.
This Mother’s Day is all about running wild on the beach, living our usual weekends next to the sea, and then going home to Disney favourites on Netflix. All of this accompanied by popcorn, cookies and croissants, because this is just a good of an excuse like any other holiday.
Head over to Jerri Jones to discover our matching sweatshirts!
