Floral, flirty and feminine. Those are the qualities I look for in a summer dress—and by the looks of Reese Witherspoon's Instagram feed, I'm not the only one.

The 48-year-old Morning Show star posted a sweet tribute to her lookalike niece, Abby James Witherspoon, who recently graduated from high school, and frankly I'm still not over Reese's floral number. For the occasion, she donned a stunning wrap dress with violet flowers, courtesy of her clothing line, Draper James. Meanwhile, Abby (the eldest daughter of Reese's brother, John D. Witherspoon) wore a flattering white maxi dress.

She captioned the post, "Tears of joy for my incredible niece @abbyjameswitherspoon! Congratulations on all the hard work, long hours of studying, the endless hours of test taking and essay writing ... and biggest congrats on being the joyful, kind-hearted, energetic, funny girl we are all so proud of! Such a proud aunt."

One fan commented, "Congrats to your niece Reese! You always look amazing in Draper James attire!" Another said, "Reese, you look stunning."

Others were quick to call out the resemblance between Reese and her 18-year-old niece. A follower wrote, "Your side of the family has strong genes." Another added, "Wow, she actually looks like your daughter even though she is your niece."

This isn't the first time Abby has appeared on her aunt's feed. In 2021, the actress twinned with her niece in orange blossom-print summer attire from Draper James, and the pair look like they could be mother and daughter.

While Reese donned a summer dress with a white sweater, Abby wore the colorful top with bell-bottom jeans. Reese captioned the post, "My sweet niece Abby showed up for dinner in my favorite @draperjames print. I love how she made it her style!"

Per usual, fans (me included) were obsessed with the matching ensembles. A commenter wrote, "Cuteness surely does run in your family!"

Clearly, Reese Witherspoon is still living up to her fashion icon status.
