I am always up for a challenge so when I was asked if I would like to take part in the #GeorgeMiniMe style challenge I quickly went onto George’s website to check what they had available for both my daughter and I and most importantly whether the outfits would match.
This was a really fun challenge, as we had to find something we would definitely wear for a party but also finding something that would match too and it did take quite a while to get that match as close as I possibly could.
The first thing I did was look at the girls department to see what my daughter liked.
Here are the outfits she decided on…
Pinafore and Striped Top Set – This is a 2 piece outfit comprising of a black skirt with braces (pinafore) and a striped black and white top. It also comes with a flower necklace which can be attached and detached via the clasps. It has an elasticated waistband.
I thought this was a gorgeous outfit and something my daughter would definitely where to a party. It fit her lovely and looks lovely on and you really do not need to accessorise it anymore than it is already as it looks perfect as it is.
To match this I chose ¾ length leggings as I rarely wear skirts especially that short. There were 2 in a pack and black. They felt quite thick so no see-through disasters and are a stretched jersey material.
To accompany the leggings I chose a striped tunic which was a long t-shirt style top that’s black and white striped. It feels a quite floaty material, and is lovely to wear.
Here are the both of us together in out matching outfits. They do look very similar.
2- Piece T-shirt & Leggings set this set is absolutely gorgeous the top is so pretty and has beads sewn into the collar part. It has a lining so it isn’t completely see-through either. It fits my daughter lovely.
I again tried to match this as best I can, the ¾ length leggings were used again, along with a lace trim vest top which was a white crinkled fabric with floral crochet detail to the upper part of the top.This was quite a see-through top but it felt lovely to wear in the hot weather we have been having.
These again were very close, if I blinged myself up with a pink necklace similar to the beading on my daughters top I think it would match well. Definitely needs something to break up the white.
We also decided on a top each that we could pair with a skirt, leggings or jeans. My daughter chose hers first. It was a crochet collar floral print top I loved the colour of this as soon as I saw it, I love lilac, purple and pink. This has a crocheted peter pan style collar, a pleat at the front, buttons all the way up the back and has a lining too. It is quite a floaty top.
My close match was the floral print bubble hem vest, it looked so pretty and as close to a match as I could find. It has a tie fastening at the front and an elasticated waistband. It was very lightweight to wear and feels nice on.
Please excuse the silly faces in the photos, my other daughter was taking the photos and she shoots without telling us so I look absolutely awful on them all.
For all of these clothes it cost just £60 which I think is very good value.
That concludes our George Mini Me Challenge, but we did have lots of fun choosing and wearing the clothing. I was surprised at the vast range that was available that matched from the girls department and the women’s department. My daughter quite likes wearing the same kind of clothes as me too so I think it won’t be long before she wants to do a matching clothes shop again.
