It’s Fashion Friday, time to take a look back at some outfits the girls put together in the last week or two. Has anyone else noticed that Ro and Ree nevereverever dress alike? We never dressed them in identical clothing when they were littler (although you know I am superduper partial to outfits that are complementary in some way), so maybe the idea just never occured to them? It'll be interesting to see if they try it after they're around other twins in Kindergarten (there are three sets of twins in their class).
In this first set of outfits, the girls both gravitated toward summery dresses and sandals. Cute. It might have actually reached 70 degrees that day (a mighty welcome change from freaking wind and rain, let me tell you!). Ro (left) went with a cute polka Carter’s dress that I think we found at Costco. And Ree went with a fun dress that our savvy shopper TubaDad brought back from a business trip to Barcelona last year. Please ignore the fact that both girls are COVERED in tattoos. They even put them on their knuckles, ugh, they look like rappers or prisoners or something. Apparently they snuck the tattoos upstairs and applied them in Ree’s bathroom using almost an entire roll of wet toilet paper. (BTW, this pic is a good one to show how Ree’s eyebrows can look way more pointy than Ro’s. Do you see it?)
Ree, in particular, was pretty proud of her tattooed self.
As a total aside, I've recently noticed how few pictures I'm actually in with the girls, so I'm going to make a serious effort to get on the other side of the lens at least once a week. It doesn't have to be a beautiful photograph, but there WILL be a weekly picture. Anyhow, here's the first self portrait of us later that day. I think we all look kind of funny in our big sunglasses.
Then there was yet another day when the girls didn’t get dressed in real clothes at all. (Hm, this seems to happen a lot around here. I'm guessing we're not the only ones?) Ro and Ree wore dress-up clothes all day, and when Wela dropped by, they made her ride on the eight-seater “train” they had assembled. I’m thinking those silk-scarf and boa seatbelts weren’t quite up to safety codes, but hey I’m not an engineer or anything. I didn’t notice until looking at this picture just now, but Ro (right) has on two different sandals. Heh.
Ree was wearing one of her many hand-me-down ballerina princessish kind of gowns, and Ro was wearing a gymnastics unitard I found for 99 cents at Goodwill. I grab them whenever I see them, because holy moly the prices they want for those things in the stores or online are insane. If anyone knows where to get good deals on gymnastics wear, please share.
Have a great weekend, and huge hugs to all the mothers, mothers-in-law, and mothers-to-be out there.
