Mommyish Poll: How Do We Feel About Matching Mother And Child Ensembles?
Victoria’s Secret Wonder Woman Miranda Kerr was photographed recently out and about in Sydney with her baby boy Flynn. And while looking incredibly stylish and put together for a mother with a 1-year-old, it was also reported that the mom and baby were sporting “matching stripes.”
Stripes aren’t exactly so unique that if I was photographed getting off the subway, I could technically be “matching” with several strangers. Besides, if you have a baby that young and you’re trying to get out of the house, it’s not like seeing the only clean pair of pants on your kid would prompt you to change your own top just because they’re the same color or design. (I’m sure Miranda doesn’t have encounter such mortal quandaries.)
Nevertheless, seeing a mother decked out in a striped maxi dress, her little tyke running around in a similarly patterned boat neck tee, could incite precisely two responses from playground company.
