Matchy Matchy Monday: Magenta and Dark Green Ladies.

Happy Monday you all and welcome to the second week of May - my birthday month. So, since this week is the week prior to Mother's Day Sunday I figured I would do daily posts of Mommy+Mini matching styles/outfits featuring Vivi and myself. Actually, I wanted to shoot a bunch of the Victoria Beckham for Target dresses I purchased for both my daughter and I, but the last week of April and especially the first week of May have been really chilly/quite cold. And those dresses are sleeveless and I think look best like that - sleeveless - (without a top or blouse underneath). I can bear the 15-20 minutes of cold for a photo-shoot but I didn't want Vivian to freeze, especially since she hasn't been feeling so great lately. Though today's outfits are shot a few weeks ago, we have been wearing leggings with layers a lot on our casual days off, lately, too. But there will at least be one VBxTarget post and that is coming on my linkup day, on Thursday. =)

As much as I love identical mommy+mini dresses or matching prints/patterns in the outfits, I think a nice and put-together mommy+mini look doesn't have to be matchy necessarily. Like in today's outfits, I am wearing Magenta, Black and Olive Green as I mixed a wide-striped Cowl-Neck Tunic with Camouflage Leggings, while Vivian is wearing Fuchsia, Black and Dark Hunter Green and she is also mixing prints with Polka Dot Leggings and her Plaid Blanket Scarf. We both wore our Black Sneakers, too. The colors in our outfits are not quite the same but they are similar and belong in the same groups of colors. We wore these outfits on a sunny but chilly 50-degree day where we walked around our neighborhood, seeing all the animals around us. A few weeks ago I showed you these leggings in a dressed up outfit which I wore to work. I love that they are comfortable and are so dark because they can be styled many different ways. Vivian loves this bright fuchsia sweatshirt dress very much. You might remember it last week in one of my birthday posts, but in a slightly dressier way.
