Two of a Kind: Matching Pink Tops

What a fun photo shoot on the steps of this beautiful brownstone building! I always wanted a twin sister! My mom and I had several matching outfits. Jean has great style and we have a few outfits that are the same. These Grecian-style tops go well with denim: soft and feminine paired with casual and rugged denim.


I’m glad she complied to wearing our tops at the same time because she prefers to be unique–can’t blame her for changing right after this photo shoot before heading for the Harlem Tavern! 😉



When I was a kid, my mom would dress me in outfits that matched hers. I was her Mini Me. Well, I’ve since developed my own sense of style and prefer a unique look, but we do still like some of the same things. So when my aunt sent us a care package all the way from Germany, you can imagine my mom’s delight when she saw two matching tops.

My mom brought the tops to New York and we had an impromptu photo shoot. Thanks to my Tante Marion for the pretty tops! She always manages to find things that I really like!

I paired my top with dark denim Bermuda shorts. They were perfect for my trip and went with the flats and wedges I’d packed.

    I saw the post on the blog of Jean, and I told her that I did not dress like my father. Although the two are beautiful and elegant. I think this look is for you.
