These days, you don't have to worry about looking like a Pollyanna if you and your daughter want to dress alike. When it comes to mommy-and-me outfits, there are really some great new options out there! We scoured the fashion world for some outfits that are cute and coordinated versus mortifying and matchy-matchy. Check out these three age-appropriate and adorable mommy-and-me coordinating styles.

Lilly Pulitzer manages to make this dress for mom sexy and fun, while making the coordinating dress for daughter cute and sweet, ($88). Mom is wearing Jack Rogers Navajo Palm beach sandals, $96; and we love these super-sparkly pink Converse Chuck Taylors for daughter, $35. These matching hers and lil hers bright pink and green canvas totes, $32 for the set, are ideal for a girls' day of shopping. If it gets chilly, toss on coordinating white sweaters, this cable-knit zip cardigan for daughter,  $24.50, and pointelle cardigan for mom, $29.50, from Old Navy.

Who says eco-conscious can't be super-stylish? We love these matching organic cotton dresses from MamaOm – the princess cut dress with bow detail for mom is flirty, $56, and the version for a little girl is cute and comfy, $48. Contrast this dress with bright yellow Converse Chuck Taylor All Star specialty shoes, $30; meanwhile mom can slip on these sexy Callisto sandals, $64.95.

The Shoshanna Made with Love Charlotte Ronson spring 2010 collection, shown here in the ring halter and brief for mom and one-piece with ruffle edging at the leg for daughter is great for beach-bound mommy and me matching. After splashing in the sea, this smocked knit tube dress is cool and casual,$15, and the girls' metallic-striped smocked sundress is perfectly age-appropriate for a little girl, $15. The matching price is nice, too! Complete the look with Jessica Simpson's Alaya caged sandal for mom, $78.95 and these beachy-cool Converse for daughter, $40.
