As a mom of five little people you can image the loads of laundry I end up washing!! Not to mention packing for trips can be a bit overwhelming with everyones clothes + shoes and trying to pack “light” for a family of seven is crazy. So I take every chance I can get to match them all and the biggest reason why is because it cuts my laundry time in half!! Dressing my people in the same color (or two) allows me to do one load of wash for the entire family after one day. Genius right?!
I started matching colors more when we were packing for vacation or a long trip back home. I knew I’d have to do laundry during the stay, but sitting there sorting through laundry and only washing a few items at a time — because of colors, whites and darks made me think there had to be a better way!! So it came to me…dress all the people in the same color and do only a few loads of wash a week!! Now of course I don’t do this all the time, but for super busy weeks, or vacations it has been a game changer + saved me a ton of time!!
It’s no secret that I’m obsessed with black and white. So when it comes to dressing my little people my style carries over into theirs when dressing them. So black is by far my favorite color to dress my kids in. Partly, because you can never see a stain, (and we all know kids and stains) and if your out and about and someone spills on themselves no big deal! Also black tennies for kids + dirt = amaaaazing!
So if you’ve ever looked for black clothing for your kids you know it’s not the easiest to find. One of my favorite brands for great black basics is Nununu. Nordstrom carries a bunch of their cute items!! Plus, they’ve had a great selection the past few months of a bunch of fun black and white items like this polka dot shirt for Hudson and this darling maxi dress for the girls!!
So jump on the matchy matchy train and save yourself some laundry time!! Cause we all know our little people aren’t going to let us match them forever! haha. Hope you all have a great day!!
