Are you into the matchy-matchy “Mama and mini” trend? I never thought I would be but seeing how excited our girls get when we all dress alike has me convinced… Why not have some fun while the kids still think “we’re cool”? And with so many local labels getting onboard I thought I’d share our BEST proudly South African Mommy and Me Fashion brands.
TOP South African Mommy and Me Fashion
Designed and founded by Tanja Robinson, a fellow girlmom with 3 sisters of her own. Matching Me is inspired by Tanja’s own childhood memories of her mama dressing them alike. So much love and effort was put into handmade outfits and after Tanja became a mom herself, she knew she wanted to share these memories with the world.
Think beautiful, timeless pieces made from top quality linens. Flowing, feminine dresses sure to make every little girl and her mama feel like the bell of the ball.
It’s no secret, WE LOVE Annapatat Kids! And in over 7 years, Anneke has never seized to amaze and impress us with her whimsical designs. So, when she decided to design, print and make her very own range of botanical leggings for mothers and daughters; we knew we all needed a pair.
Made from cotton lycra – these leggings are just so soft! I could live in them forever. The colours and florals that make up the design is also simply beautiful and we hope Annapatat will be adding more “Mommy and Me” items to their range soon.
Going to a special event? Maybe you have a family photo session planned? High tea somewhere fabulous? ilan is the label to shop!
Known for their breathtaking occasional woman’s wear, ilan also launched a little girl’s (2-7 years) collection earlier this year. Garments are made to match mommy but still taking into consideration the body type of a woman vs. a little girl.
These outfits are stunning and sure to make a memorable statement.
Mommy and me fashion isn’t just a girl thing… With awesome brands like Lullaby Rock boy moms (and dads) can join in the fun too…
We love our “Rebel With A Cause” sweatshirts and can’t wait for summer to wear our “Be The Change” tees. These look rad on anyone and are made in support of Down Syndrome Awareness. ” Including for all of our Homies with extra chromies (Chromosomes).”
Tees, hoodies and sweaters for the entire family! Even some goodies for our four-legged members too…
Robyn and her team of 3, makes every garment from top quality local fabrics ensuring the perfect fit and lasting print. And with an ever changing variety of designs you’re spoiled for choice.
Who can resist a personalised, classic, minimalist tee? These are so cute and can be ordered from newborn all the way up to mom’s size.
A subtle, pretty way to be twinning.
