Styling My Twin Sister for a Week

As many of you know, I have a twin sister, Madison. Obviously we are not identical but some weeks she too wants to dress nicely. However, Madison often comes to me with a closet full of cute clothes saying she is unsure of what pieces pair together well. So this week I took advantage of her asking and decided that she would be in front of the camera rather than behind it for a change. Madison typically dresses very preppy. She loves Vineyard Vines and prefers to keep things pretty simple in terms of dressing. In knowing this, I came up with five outfits for her to wear this ‘week’. Keep reading to check them out!

Styling My Twin Sister for a WeekOutfit #1- This outfit is actually from Madison’s DC trip a few days back when I styled her. It was the epitome of a spring day so I had her wear light layers. Starting with a classic white tee, then a gingham button up, and on top of that a Vineyard Vines shep shirt. This made her outfit appropriate for all the temperatures the day may have had!

Outfit Details- tee: Old Navy, jeans: Hollister, button up: Vineyard Vines, shep shirt: Vineyard Vines, shoes: Converse, watch: Fossil, bracelet: KJP, rings: Pandora

Outfit #2- Off the shoulder tops are super trendy right now so when I remembered Madison had this one in her closet from back to school season I immediately suggested she pair it with some classic skinny jeans and Converse.

Styling My Twin Sister for a WeekOutfit #3-  I chose to style Madison up for the rainy weather as well. Her Hunters are navy so they paired perfectly with the classic navy whale Vineyard Vines shirt and because it was chillier, I had her pop on her red and navy Vineyard Vines vest over top.

Outfit #4- I chose this outfit because it’s been quite some time since this simple cold shoulder top of Madison’s was worn. It paired super well with her pair of snake-skin sandals and her daily jewelry.

Styling My Twin Sister for a WeekOutfit #5- Madison is a huge fan of the loose peplum style tank tops and with the warmer weather creeping up on us I decided to pair this one from American Eagle with a pair of white Jacks and a white cardigan.

Overall I am fairly pleased with the outfits that I picked for this week of styling Madison. However, I felt that styling her in the colder months was much easier because I was able to mix and match a variety of pieces and overall she had more clothing to work with. Hopefully before the next week of styling Madison I will have more options to choose from and outfits will come more naturally.

Styling My Twin Sister for a Week

As many of you know, I have a twin sister, Madison. Obviously we are not identical but some weeks she too wants to dress nicely. However, Madison often comes to me with a closet full of cute clothes saying she is unsure of what pieces pair together well. So this week I took advantage of her asking and decided that she would be in front of the camera rather than behind it for a change. She typically dresses very preppy. She loves Vineyard Vines and vests but likes to keep things pretty comfortable as well. In knowing this, I came up with five outfits for her to wear this week. Keep reading to check them out!

Monday- Madison specifically asked me to pick out an outfit that would look good with this denim ruffled top. I opted for some dark denim to add some contrast and some pearls to keep it extra classy and sophisticated. Her shoe selection to pair with this outfit in January wasn’t spectacular so I opted for some basic white Converse.

Tuesday- On Tuesday a little dusting of snow was expected and Madison told me she wanted to wear her bean boots and this new red sweater that she had yet to wear since receiving it for Christmas. I figured a navy flannel with red in it would pair perfectly with the sweater and the navy blue on her boots. Her KJP bracelet tied the look together and we stuck with light wash jeans to break up the navy.

Wednesday– Today Madison asked specifically that I incorporate her olive-green rain booties into the look. I went with a matching olive-green vest and a coordinating white sweater and socks. She added a scarf for an extra layer.

Thursday- It wouldn’t be a typical week for Madison if I didn’t include some sort of Vineyard Vines or a quarter zip. I paired a navy Nautica quarter zip with her beloved Hunter boots and picked out a long sleeve for an added touch.

Friday- I decided to let Madison get comfy today and paired her favorite red flannel with some basic leggings and riding boots. By throwing on a vest the outfit was instantly pulled together and she had an extra layer for the chilly start to the morning.

Overall I am really pleased with the outfits I came up with for Madison and so was she. It truly goes to show that you can make an outfit from any sort of pieces as long as you have a vision and an eye. I would like to say a big thank you to Madison for letting me use her for today’s blog post and I certainly hope this won’t be the last time.
