Welcome to the very first EVER episode of Sister Style…
Starting Yours Truly and my favorite sister, MEG!
I’m humoring you all with the volume one business. In reality, I have no idea if we’ll ever do this again. I thought “Sister Style” was kind of catchy and kept saying it the whole time we were snapping these pictures. (Think “superstar!” and Mary Katherine Gallagher and you’ve got the right image in your head. Except instead of lunges, more like strike a pose.) My sister and I took a day trip to Portsmouth, New Hampshire this past Saturday and while we were there I had the idea to do this joint outfit post. I saw the white wall, and it just seemed like the perfect opportunity for an impromptu photo shoot. My sister went along with it happily, which is why she’s my favorite.
First of all, if you don’t already know, Meg and I are super close. We used to fight like animals when we were younger, but now we’re the chummiest of chums. She lives with me and Zan (our apartment has two floors!), and I always feel super lucky to get to spend as much time with her as I do, especially when Zan’s working late, or on weekends. I think one of the best things about having a sister, besides having a forever friend, is being able to share clothes. When we were in high school we wouldn’t ever dare to be caught dead sporting the same outfits (I shake my head at the immaturity), but now, we are glad to have a second wardrobe to choose an outfit from. Imagine!
These two outfits are a pretty typical representation of our style. We’re in love with Madewell and J.crew, but have had a lot of great luck at Old Navy in the past year, too. I’ve been dabbling in a little vintage lately, and of course, we’re both suckers for Target. But who isn’t?
Yeah, I’m wearing a children’s hat. WHATEVS.
I’ll be sharing photos from Portsmouth soon. Have you ever been? It was my first time visiting and I loved it!
