Mommy & me matching outfit - Blush and grey

Today we are reversed matching! Mason is in grey with a splash of blush and I'm in blush with a splash of grey... So I would say we are complementing each other!

Mason is eating candies! Shhhhh don't tell anyone I know it's not really good but I can't help it. I eat them all the time too...

I got Mason's clothes pretty recently but this time they're sized so big that he's kind of lost in them. I've never been a fan of baggy clothes but I'm sure they'll fit perfectly soon since this kid is growing like a weed!

Walking together while holding his hand is probably one of the best feelings ever. I thought this would never happen since I had to fight him so much to accept it. Now he even is the one asking to hold my hand, and every time he does it warms my heart so much!

But of course most of the time he's a wild monster running away from me and doing silly stuff. And he usually goes where he's not allowed!

I'm wearing my new jewels from Rocksbox. I never get tired of the little surprise effect each time I receive my new box. Don't forget you can still use the code myloveandbeyondxoxo to get your first month's membership for free. Simply go to Rocksbox to use it.

They sent me the perfect little diamonds to mix and match with my wardrobe. Perfect match with this new dress I just got and that I absolutely love. Blush is one of my favorite colors and the lace top makes it look just so pretty.

Matching beach outfits

Everyone knows I love to match with Mason. No matter where we go or what we do, whether it's obvious or subtle, Mason and I are always coordinated. This time it was definitely obvious and I absolutely LOVED it!!! This combo is just one of my absolutely favorites and I can't even tell you how comfortable and soft these clothes are.

We love to go to the beach and even though it's very warm sometimes it's very windy there so keeping a layer on top of our bathing suits isn't a luxury.  Our Leedit clothes are the perfect outfits for these kinds of days!

Letting Mason enjoy himself while being well protected from the sun and not getting cold is always my primary concern. And I think our pictures show pretty well how much fun we had!

I have a special code to share that can give you 20% the entire site + free shipping! Don't wait - go to leedit and use " melaniemaroonfamandfriends " at checkout.

You can even use the code to get the same discount at their other label littlepopstudios! Hope you'll love their clothes as much as we do!

I love wearing dresses but sometimes it can be hard with kids. This one is SO comfortable I could wear it everyday!

I have to be honest, I hate the sand! I mean I used to love it as a kid then I grew up and started to be annoyed by it. It's sticky and uncomfortable. But what wouldn't you do for your little one. Especially moving to LA we couldn't avoid it. And I have to say, the more we go to the beach, the more I don't mind anymore! Seeing how Mason loves it makes me love it all over again...

He loves digging in it - covering things up and then digging it out again! And we could do that again and again without getting tired of it!

Mason loves chasing the waves but when they come right back at him then he runs away from them as fast as he can. I think he's very attracted to it but very scared at the same time. Which is very fun to watch!

He for sure prefers to be in my arms so I'm the one getting wet...

Palm Springs Botanical garden

While in Palm Springs we went to visit the Botanical Garden. I've always loved flowers. If I could, I would have some all over my house all the time! I'm not a huge fan of greens but I love pretty flowers. I actually realized going there that I absolutely love desert flowers, they are soooo pretty and I think now I want to get some for my house!!!

We had to be careful that Mason wouldn't get hurt! Those cacti were pretty but I don't think hugging them would have been nice.

And since Mason is a wild kid and runs as fast as he can without listening, I had to run too and stay close!

I don't think I could have picked a better outfit for Mason! It looked so good in the surrounding and it's from the botanical collection!

The place was really not crowded and Mason was the only kid there. He loved having the whole place for himself!

The green house was absolutely stunning!

Mason was for once listening and didn't touch anything. I tried to show him some cacti and flowers but he didn't really care the only thing he wanted to do was run and try to scare me!

I've been looking for a nude dress for quite a while now and had difficulty finding one. I wasn't so sure about this one at first. I thought it was too much like a night gown but my husband loved it, so if your husband does than you just get it! Oh and also it had pockets which is one of my absolute favorite features on clothing - don't know why but I love having pockets on my dresses!

Now I'm glad I got it! It's so light to wear and comfortable. And I can accessorize it as much as I want since it's a pretty classical look.

^ As I said the pockets are just so great :) ^

^ The wild man running ^

^ And always pointing... ^

There were hummingbirds coming in and out and we tried to watch one closely with Mason. It's always so cute to see how he can concentrate at times.

They had a little gift shop where Mason played for quite some time with the little turtles. He was stacking them by putting the little ones on the big ones. Sometimes seeing his imagination can be so rewarding...
