Twinning With Our Minis. The Fashion Trend We Love!
I’m just going to start this off by saying, ”I’m Irene….and I’m a Twinaholic”. Yes, you’ve heard right, I’m obsessed with ‘twinning’ with my four year old daughter (and my two year old son given half the opportunity – is ‘tripleting’ a thing?). Even if they don’t share my enthusiasm and don’t know it yet, I can’t help myself! Anyone else? Just me?
It seems the fashion industry has now caught on to the whole ‘mini-me’ trend and twinning has taken on a whole new fashionable journey. Let’s be honest, who doesn’t love mini furry animals, fun-size chocolate bars and mini-size cosmetics and makeup – super cute right? Anything that is a tiny, identical version of something else is instantly adorable and has that ‘awwwwww’ factor!
Instagram and celebrities have a lot to answer for in my opinion when it comes to making ‘matchy matchy’ with your parents a ‘thing’ now. I mean, if Beyoncé can do it…
Who knew there is now such a world dedicated to all things ‘twinning’?! I didn’t until I began researching into it all for this post! Twinning is big business now so I’m going to share a few of my favourite brands I found plus a couple based here in Dubai which I love – to get you all ‘matchy-mathcy’ with your little ones. WARNING: The following may incur serious ‘buying-frenzy’ notions, just don’t blame me….OK!
I cannot cope with the amount of cuteness that is on offer here. Not only do they have matching ‘Mommy and Me’ options, but they also carry matching family pieces so I can now ‘twin’ not only with my daughter – but with my son and my husband. I’m sure he will be as equally as excited as me…NOT! Here are a couple of my favourites from the site…
Embroidered dress – shop for the look here.
Gingham off-the-shoulder dress – shop for the look here.
Family beach shorts and tees – shop for the look here.
Pink floral swimsuit – shop for the look here.
Next up, another cute website I stumbled across and one which ships to the UAE – patpat.com
Their matching beach wear and accessories are off-the-scale (my credit card is literally burning right now!) plus the adorable matching family Christmas pyjamas – I’m tempted to buy them now, coz you know…Christmas is only approximately 8 months away!!
Shop for a few of my faves from this site:
My family don’t know it yet – but they all really need these!! Shop here
Just because my daughter REALLY likes Unicorns! Shop here
Who knows – my husband and son could really get into Unicorns too?? Shop here
Who doesn’t love a splash of tropical for the summer! Shop here
Moving onto something a bit more local here in the UAE, this fabulous brand offers the cutest matching (and customized) accessories on the scene right now…
Twenty5Zero5 who’s matching ‘Mummy and Me’ plus adorable slogan hats makes you just want to don all your summer clothes and run to the beach!
And another gorgeous UAE based brand. Every time I log onto their Instagram account – there’s a new bag that I want. I’m currently coveting their monogrammed large Roundie bag for my summer holidays…so watch this space!
Myself and my daughter have gotten so much use out of our matching Mummy and Me bags – I’ve nicknamed mine the ‘Mary Poppins’ bags as not only do I use it for beach and pool days, but I also use it for play-dates, styling work which I sometimes to and general everyday living!
Check their Instagram profile here.
A little tip I’d like to share with you also, those of us who fall into the shoe size category between Size UK 4 (EU37) – Size UK 7 (EU40) – keep an eye on the kids shoe departments in places such as Marks & Spencer’s and Zara amongst others. Not only can you find matching pairs of shoes to your little ones, a lot of the time, their ‘Young Girls’ clothing departments go up to usually Age 14 + which is equivalent to a Ladies 10/12 – #justsaying
Thanks as always for tuning in and hope you enjoyed this little twinning post. I’ll be back soon with a look at another favourite high street store, in the meantime….I’ll leave you with this…
