Even in the middle of a pandemic, I try my best to look pulled together. Sure, there are days I don’t get out of my sweatpants or I can’t find time to shower until the afternoon (#momlife), but most of the time, I still like to dress up—especially around the holidays. Whether you’re having a small Christmas dinner or are Skyping with grandma to open gifts, it’s fun to dress up, especially with the kids. And one of my go-to brands is Ivy City Co., a woman-owned, small business that makes matching dresses for moms and littles in the most on-trend designs and fabrics.
Mother-daughter relationships are the strongest of all parent-child bonds. It comes to the common ways their brains process emotion, according to a study published in the Journal of Neuroscience.
Mix and Match
Owned and operated by a three-woman team, Tash, Whitney and Madeline, the brand was founded in 2015 and designed just for moms and daughters! Most of their dresses come in several different sizes made for moms, girls, and babies. So now you can match with your little ones! And many of their pieces are even nursing-friendly for new moms who want to be fashionable and comfortable.
While I love these pieces on their own, their Mini and Me dresses are so cute that I can even convince my tomboy daughter to twin with mom! They’re probably some of the only dresses that she loves, and they look great on both of us!

Dressing For the Occasion
Whether you’re 4 or 40 these dresses are amazing. Dylan and I love the Aurora Mini Dress and Aurora Dress from their Mini and Me collection. Plus they all come in flattering silhouettes and lengths, so if you’re looking for something to wear with your littles over the holidays, these are fun and festive!
Right now, their Noel Plaid Dress (with matching outfits for kids and babies) and the Sicily Dress in hunter green, a limited edition color for the holidays, are perfect for the upcoming Christmas season. Dylan and I can’t get enough of these dresses, and I know you and your kids will love them too!

Hearing a mother’s voice eases older children’s stress just as much as a real-life hug, according to a 2010 study. The sound of mom’s voice lowers a child’s stress hormone, cortisol, and raises his or her level of oxytocin, a hormone linked with love and bonding.
