I love it when we meet new people and they will remark excitedly about the fact that my daughters are wearing matching clothing. The first question after that is usually to ask if we did it on purpose or inquire if it’s a special occasion. They are literally shocked when I then say that my girls have spent roughly 99% of the 2+ years they have known each other wearing matching clothing. What follows is usually a flood of questions wanting to know why they match, whose idea it was, and then they always want to know how on Earth I found so many outfits that match for the past two years.
I always tell them that "matching girls" was entirely my oldest's idea. When her sister was born in 2015, she wanted to make sure that everyone knew how excited she was about her baby sister and declared that they were going to match every day.
Every morning, the girls decide what they want to wear and then they come in with the outfit for me to get my little one dressed. I love that this way they are still making the choice every single day to match, and I adore how excited they still get once their outfits are on and they squeeze each other tight and say "matching girls!".
Although I initially resisted matching girls, I can honestly say that I am dreading the day that they decide they are done with it. And, not just because it would mean completely re-doing their closets and making sure they didn't choose the same outfit on the same day. Matching girls is just who they are, and I love them for that.
Want to know how I found all the matching clothing for my girls? It's not as easy as you would think! This is why I created The Complete Guide to Matching Clothing for Baby, Kids, and Siblings. If you are looking to add a few matching outfits to your kids' closets, I would start there!
