My younger brother is my best friend. Growing up everyone thought we were twins because my mom dressed us alike all the time and were only a year apart (like Carter and Cade). We loved it. We hated it. But it is a huge part of some of my favorite childhood memories. I’d totally be down to still dress alike but he’s way too cool for that. What’s most important is that were still inseparable to this day. So it’s only natural that I gravitate towards the twinning life with my little ones.
I constantly get asked where I find matching pieces for them and people are always taken aback when I respond “everywhere” but I can literally find pieces that blend together just about anywhere. I go from Target to Etsy mixing affordability with unique pieces that will last. For all my twinning moms (or aspiring twinners) I am going to share 3 short easy tips to twinning your babies (especially girl/boy siblings) that won’t break the bank or your sanity!
TIP ONE: My most favorite go to and easiest twinning option for boy/girl sibling is turning a basic t-shirt or button up into a dress. I do this with Carter and Cadence a lot. I buy a funky, gender neutral top in Carter’s normal size and I purchase the same shirt for Cadence two sizes larger than her normal size. I pair Carter’s top with a neutral bottom and I belt Cadence’s shirt at the waist if needed. Voila! Twinning siblings with the same top worn two totally different ways.
TIP TWO: My second go to is to find a gender neutral t shirt and funk it out. I buy the same t shirt is their respective sizes. I then choose a color or a pattern to accentuate the t shirt in their own way. For example, last week they had on matching t-shirts and they both had on Buffalo Plaid accessories. Cade had on a buffalo plaid skirt and Carter had a Buffalo plaid flannel over his shirt with jeans. The idea is to pick out a pattern or color that matches so you don’t have to match the same pieces exactly. It will all blend and it’s way less work for mom. You can do the same with an accentuating color.
TIP THREE: Which leads me to my favorite tip of them all – think outside the box and add your own personal flair when twinning your babies. Even twin with them every once in a while (or all the time, like I do! Lol). Carter gets so excited when I twin with him (Cade doesn’t have a clue what’s happening) and I love that he still wants to dress like his mommy. Because let’s be clear I’m aware that pretty soon they’ll be telling us they have their own style and twinning with mommy is lame so have fun, dress them up, dress up with them, and enjoy the moments while we have them.
