The JetSet Family // The Matching Dots


It always seems like I am on a perpetual search for clothing items that are not only versatile, but pack well for travel. This not only goes for myself, but very much so for JetSet Tot. See, there are only a few stores and brands I will allow Tot to wear. No, it’s not because I’m being snotty, but it is because I’m having a harder and harder time finding stylish, yet modest, outfits that are appropriately young. Then I discovered The Matching Dots.

These beautiful blend dresses are not only stylish, but socially responsible and made in the USA. And it is not only momma and bebe who get to be all matchy-patchy, The Matching Dots have designs available for girls from 12 months to 8 years, mommas, dolls and your favorite furry friends.

Connecting the dots.

The Matching Dots sent over the beautiful Lilly dress for JetSet Tot and the Gigi dress for myself to enjoy. We put them to the immediate test when packing them up for our weekend away at The Langham Huntington, Pasadena. I didn’t want to over pack, plans were up in the air, temperatures were going to be unpredictable and we had dinner reservations at The Royce. So I needed something presentable and would take care of all of the above.


I couldn’t have packed a better piece. The dress packed and traveled neatly, and when time came to unpack, the standard in-transit wrinkles took care of itself. Within an hour, Tot was dressed and ready to go and she loved the style too. She felt comfortable, but fancy and those are big factors when it comes to our resident fashionista.

I was a fan of the fabric because it was thin enough to breathe when it got warmer, and wasn’t cumbersome later at night when it got chilly and we needed to add a jacket or cardigan. I do feel however it is important to note that I would recommend having your daughter where an undershirt or camisole top under the Lilly because the white color block is thin. Not see through, just fit forming and white.

Designs are true to size, but I did need to go one size up for Tot because she’s very tall. Like string bean tall. So I unless your child has legs for miles like mine does, you should be fine with grabbing her normal size.

    Oh, she is adorable and she seems to be happy with the dress. I know what you mean about “modesty”. I don’t have any kiddos, but I see some of these outfits in the stores for young kids and I think to myself “there is no way I’d like my kid wear that/ She’s not 20”

  • Christine Tolhurst January 11, 2014

    I like that the dress is modest. I am having a very hard time finding modest clothes for my daughter. She is 10 and wears adult/junior’s sizes so I wish they made these modest girl style dresses in those sizes as well. Everything in her size it too low cut, too short and too tight.

    i have the same issue with clothes for my 9 year old. i get so frustrated by the mini adult stuff and the REVEALING clothes they make for little girls!!

  • Martha January 11, 2014

    That dress is very pretty. Age appropriate and still trendy

  • Debi January 11, 2014

    That dress is beautiful. I love it because it doesn’t look too old for her. I have that problem with dresses for my daughter

  • Mistee Dawn January 11, 2014

    Such a cute dress. And she looks so adorable in it. It looks super comfy, too.

    You are so right! It’s getting really hard to find my 7 year old cute clothes that are modest. I will definitely check them out.

  • Cecile January 12, 2014

    What a cute dress! It looks so comfortable.

  • Ashley M January 12, 2014

    Super cute! My 3.5 year old is already outgrowing 4T clothing so I know how you feel about constantly sizing up.

  • Mary January 13, 2014

    That is such a cute dress. Could fit in anywhere.

  • Donna January 13, 2014

    What a gorgeous model! I love that dress. I don’t have a daughter, but I could picture me getting something just like this for her if I did have one. 🙂

  • Petro Neagu January 13, 2014

    I like the dress, it seems comfortable not to mention how cute it is with those dots on. I love the sandals, I used to own a similar pair 🙂

  • Samantha Cuhel January 13, 2014

    That dress is very cute. Tot looks so grown up!

  • Cute dress…..she is at that age that the stores forget that they are still kids so it is hard to find young girly stuff for her. You did good with this dress.

  • Danielle @ We Have It All January 20, 2014

    Very pretty. My 4 year old will ONLY wear dresses so I’ll need to check out this company.
