I totally stole this idea from a picture I saw on Pinterest. It was of two little girls wearing matching holiday dresses. Both the big & little sister saying "oh great matching dresses"- one clearly annoyed and one over the moon happy. Much like this Easter picture circa 1975 that my mama took of me and my big sister. (Never mind that I'm 3 months old here and almost as big as her at 5!) You see gentle reader- I've always been president of my big(nameless- she hates the limelight y'all!) sister's fan club. So heck yeah I was down with the matching dresses.
And GUESS™ overalls! (These were stripy on the backside and solid on the front!)
It's funny because at some point most folks don't want to dress like anyone else. I always wanted to wear her stuff but I'd put my spin on it. I'm a bit flashier and she's a bit more preppy but I still love her style. Errr... Our style. Wouldn't be crazy if we both showed up in the same outfit somewhere with different shoes/jewelry.
I find myself buying matching things for my boys. I think it's adorable. I know that they will develop their own sense of style but for now I get to dress them how I please.
What do you think about dressing kiddos alike my pretty people? Share your thoughts. And how cute is my sister?
