Fashion Plates

I think I’ve mentioned here before that raising twins is the ultimate experiment in the nature vs. nurture debate. My girls—born into the same family on the same day three minutes apart, raised in the same house, sharing a room, experiencing the same caretakers/teachers from 6 months on up to now 1st grade—could not be more different in personality. Lately, this has been heavily reflected in their choice of attire. Sarah is definitely our little fashion plate while Olivia much more prefers comfort. It mattered not to Sarah yesterday morning that it was 80 degrees and very humid at 8am. As long as she looked good, that's what was important! She has informed me that her new “look” will be a dress worn over jeans with her gold shoes and a jacket or hoodie of some sort. Bunny will be her accessory of choice when permitted. Meanwhile, Olivia reaches for the same knit dresses and knit shorts and sneakers every day. Another day in the life….I'm a lucky girl. :-)

Oh, that is so cute!! And they both look fabulous, regardless of one being fashion plate and other being comfy.
