Ok so I have always been a fan of the twinning is winning trend and yes I have been known to upload a few pics of myself and one of the urchins in matching outfits. But this is taking it to another level. Yes the new way to go out with your family is to dress ALL your kids in the same outfit! And why not?

I like to call it Tripleting (not yet in the English dictionary...but should be!)

The three of us have opted for the awesome Finnish brand Mainio with their geometric prints and monochrome colour palette. The ultra cool shapes of the oversized adult dresses teamed with the super comfiest leggings ever, make the perfect mum wardrobe for everyday casual dressing. Dress the mini me's in matching Mainio outfits and stand in front of hypnotic black and white wallpaper, and you're killing it!

The Mainio Spring / Summer 16 collection plays with geometry with references to 80s postmodernism from TV test cards to Finnish suburb architecture. The end result is cheery and playful mixing a monochrome palette with bright tones of colour.

What makes Mainio even more awesome is that all production is open and traceable. They work only with factories that they know and they share all updated information of their production on their website, so we know how and where our clothes are made every step of the way.

I am wearing the Block Oversized Dress €49.90 and the Block leggings in black €32.90, teamed with my go to black boots from Acne. You can dress up the dress with a bare leg and heels for a night out, or team the leggings with a simple t-shirt and a pair of your favourite sandals for an easy daytime look. Or go loud and proud and pair them together like I have for an ultra geometric look!

Ruby is wearing the Lines Skirt €29.90 and Block tank top €22.90 for a simple cool monochrome look. She has added a block of colour with red Converse boots making it the perfect 'hangout with your friends' outfit! This skirt would also look awesome with a pop of colour dressed up for a family party. The black elastic waistband gives it a smart finished look perfect for tucking in a simple vest or tee.

Pippa has opted for the Block Mix leggings €22.90 and teamed them with the Block Tank top €22.90. These super cool leggings with one black leg and one white are the perfect choice for playful kids wanting to express their personality. Made from soft 100% organic cotton, Mainio clothing is made for everyday wear whether you're at the park, home, jumping on the trampoline or lounging on the sofa. 

What's our verdict? 

We LOVE Mainio.
