You can never go wrong with black and twinning is always winning in my books so naturally these looks are going to be our fall uniforms. I have decided to be a little less aggressive with the matching mommy and me looks recently, opted for complimentary looks that are not identical. Also, with our age and size difference, it’s much easier to pull off the less intentional matchy look to be honest.
We shot a bunch of photos for a recent Geox campaign and took a few extra images just for our personal files but they came out so darn cute, I thought they should live somewhere else other than my iPhone. Plus, so many of you have been asking where I got our outfits from, so I am linking everything right here for you guys.
Leather (both faux and real) are my actual obsession. I will collect them until the end of time and at the rate Maxwell is going, she will be doing the same damn thing. I picked up this one a year and a half ago from good ‘ole Zara and thankfully they have continued to bring it back over the last few seasons, so you can scoop this exact Zara faux leather jacket for $79. Maxwell’s leather moto jacket came from Joe Fresh and it’s only $35. In hindsight, I should have bought two extra in larger sizes for when she’s older. Y’all know like 70% of her wardrobe staples are pieces from there because of the affordable price point and quality. It does come in baby and toddler sizes in case you are crazy enough like me to want to put a 1 year old in a leather moto LOL!
As for our dresses…if you have a little one, I am sure you’re familiar with the brand Freshly Picked, who became popular for their newborn leather moccasins. Maxie had several pairs when she was teeny tiny but now the brand has expanded so much and now make leather bags, accessories and clothing for both kiddos and adults. I scooped up her Elbow Sleeve Baby Doll dress from there last year actually and made sure to get a larger size so she had tons of room to grow into it. You can find and shop my Wilfred New Button-Front Dress at Aritzia. FYI…It runs a bit small so you may want to head to a store to try on before purchasing.
The boots…the BOOTS. Cannot believe how many of you have DM’d about them, especially my shoes. Both from Geox and I know so many people are under the assumption that the brand doesn’t have fresh, up to date styles but trust me, do not sleep on them. While not all their styles may be a fit with my personal style, I always find something I love when I pass by their store or take a peek online. My Phaolae boots are killer…and I chose them because not only are they the perfect mix of a Doc Marten and Common Project boots, but they are are hella comfortable and also has a winterized lining that makes it perfect for Canadian winters. Maxie’s Kilwi lace-up high tops from the Geox baby collection. They are fully breathable, which is great because her little feet get so hot when she’s out and about and the patent leather upper makes it easy to dress up and down.
Sorry guys, if you were hoping for a shopping link for my YSL Small LouLou Bowling Bag you’re not going to find one today. It appears as though the back is completely sold out EVERYWHERE. I waited patiently for mine because it kept selling out but was lucky enough to scoop up the last one about 6 months ago and I have not seen it hit stores again since. I will be sure to update this post if I see if resurface online.
