Having grown up as an only child, the sibling relationship is something that I have always admired and desperately wanted.   From my point of view, a sibling is a built-in friend who is there to share your deepest secrets, help you with difficult decisions and rocky relationships, and serve as your guide in learning right from wrong.  A sibling is a constant in your life and the one person who understands the depth of your love for your parents and who will understand the depth of your grief when your parents pass away.  A sibling is your person.  A sibling gets you.  Having a sibling makes you a part of a tribe.

Perhaps it goes along with being part of a tribe or the hope to create an identity for their unit that inspires parents to dress their children alike.  Maybe coordinated clothing simply began as a way to create a nice family photo.  Whatever the case, I always love seeing siblings dressed in coordinating outfits and I LOVE that Megan, the owner and designer of Shrimp and Grits Kids, is focused on creating sibling sets each season.  I recently asked Megan to share her creative process when developing coordinating sets for siblings in her line.  This is what she had to say: 

“I always try to design sets that incorporate a girl and a boy coordinating design.  I also like to add an older girl and an older boy option in several styles per season. I know so many mamas like to coordinate the whole family and I try to give them several options.”

Some Shrimp and Grits Kids customers prefer to dress their children exactly the same while others prefer pieces that complement one another.  As family photo sessions, and especially sibling photo sessions, become more and more popular, we continue to see an increase in purchases of sibling sets each season.  Whether you are a parent to all girls, all boys, or some of each, Shrimp and Grits Kids is your one stop to get your little ones completely coordinated!

We adore seeing all of your family photos and how you are matching your children in Shrimp and Grits Kids.  Scroll down to check out one of our favorite sibling photos, along with a few sibling set shots from our Shrimp and Grits Spring 2016 line.
