Realistically, how long do I have until Gemma doesn’t want to match me any longer? 3 years? 5 years? I feel like I need a timeline so I can basically max out her matching Mama quota because Lord knows there’s going to come a day when she says ‘NO’ to my twinsistence. But right now is pure. Right now we shall shamelessly dress alike as much as we want. That is until she learns shame. What is that, around kindergarten age? Wait…I’m 30-something and still shameless — maybe we’ve got longer to dress alike than I thought…

As the story goes, I was shopping for her and found a PERFECT match in the mama section. But I mean, who could pass this up? First off, they are both jumpsuits and second they are both a very lovely color of olive, summer’s best neutral. I truly love this jumpsuit, the fit on it is just perfect. It’s a linen feel and it’s really comfortable. I think I mentioned this previously but I’ve been loving one-pieces this spring. I think it was my inability to wear them last spring and summer, so now that I have the freedom to, I’m just wild over them. My only note: I wish my romper buttoned at the legs as well.

You can find Gemma’s jumpsuit here and my jumpsuit here! Our fit info is below!

As you can tell from the photos, Gemma is very energetic and happy. She has conquered crawling and basically wants down at all times. Most of the photos we shot were of her looking down at the ground and trying to slip out of my arms to get to the floor. When she first started crawling I could tell that she didn’t realize what she had; she didn’t know she could move from room to room. Well, guys — she knows now. Homegirl is fast, too. Our dogs are not into this crawling stage, we will just say that. I’ve already warned them — the next stage is walking. No one in our house is prepared. No one.

Side note: Tenth photo down — if you ever wondered what Bryan would have looked like in a romper and bow, there you go. I told Gemma the other day that I wanted to look like her and daddy. And then I realized how creepy that sounded.

  1. Haha, she’s adorable! My baby was late to the crawling game, but now that he’s figured it out, he never stays in the same place for more than 10 seconds. It’s an adventure!

    On a semi-unrelated note, I’m not sure if you’re breastfeeding or not, but if you are, would you mind sharing when an outfit is nursing friendly? That’s been one of the hardest things about breastfeeding for me – finding cute clothes that also happen to be boob-accessible!

  2. This looks great, but are you nursing? How do you manage it in an outfit like this?!? Breastfeeding friendly and stylish clothes are SO hard.

    1. 100% agree on finding breastfeeding friendly clothes! I’m not nursing any longer so there is freedom with the boob area now. If you *really* wanted to wear this jumpsuit (or any jumpsuit) would be okay if you wore a tee under it and you could pull the jumpsuit down pretty easily and the tee up, but ya know. That’s complicated when your baby is hungry or crying!! My other thought is to look for a jumpsuit with a v-neck! that would be very nursing friendly. I feel like I went button downs and v-necks when I was nursing bc I didn’t know what else worked!

  3. As a mama whose babies are teens, I can tell you that some girls don’t mind looking like mom far longer than you’d think. My daughter’s taste is eclectic like mine, and there are many days where we look similar, even if matchy-matchy is out. So far she doesn’t run change her outfit. And she’s nearly 16! You have great taste in clothes, and so will Gemma.

  4. My daughter is eight and we are still going strong with matching our outfits. Of course it isn’t all the time, but when we are on vacation or a special event we still love it. So fun!

  5. I’ve been shy about venturing to the romper/jumpsuit dark side because I’m worried how inconvenient using the potty will have to be? TMI? Do you have to strip down? haha totally okay if you don’t answer this!

    1. Girl. I was WAITING for this question! I’ll absolutely answer it! So basically yes — I strip down to use the bathroom. I thought about this when I was wearing this jumper and I thought hard about it and honestly it wasn’t any more inconvenient than unbuttoning pants. It’s actually pretty easy and fast because you just slip out of the top and pull it right back up! The only thing is you feel like for sure someone is staring through the cracks in the bathroom stalls at your unclothed top. I assure they are not. 🤣 It’s kind of awkward at first but it’s the price you pay for the lifestyle that is a jumpsuit.
