Two of a Kind

On more than one occasion, Ashlie and I have emerged from our respective bedrooms in similar outfits (or more often than not, in the same pink hoodie sporting our own colleges' names). It's very rarely ever planned (except during Halloween if you were lucky enough to see our hilarious quidditch pictures . . .) so our matching is just a testament to our close ties. Take my last "hurrah" night-on-the-town before I moved home, for example.

We spent our Valentine's Day doing some retail therapy in the new Gap Factory Store (ah-maz-ing. SO much better than a regular Gap!) in our town, picking up two skirts (among many other things) that we couldn't wait to wear that evening.

Somehow we both decided to pair them with navy tops, statement necklaces, and booties. Thankfully, we weren't too embarrassed to walk next to each other thanks to the different prints and her colored tights. Even if we were dressed exactly the same, I would still feel awesome next to my bestie.

Skirts: Gap Factory Store My necklace: Caroline G My Boots: Sears (I'm not sure where the rest of our outfits are from . . . sorry! :P)

What can I say? We're two of a kind.

My skirt is actually a few inches longer, but I wore it higher up for an evening out. I can't WAIT to remix it all year round. I remember that Kate from A Journey in Style wore a similar striped skirt and I LOVED it. Can't wait to be inspired by her looks.

Oh and one more thing . . . My amazing sponsor of the month, Marlene from MDC Artistic Designs is giving away a $40 giftcard to her incredible jewelry store and time is ALMOST UP. In honor of her husband's birthday tomorrow, she is increasing the 20% off coupon code to 30% off for TOMORROW ONLY. The code is tmafeb20 (it will be increased to 30 tomorrow using the same code).  If you want to make a purchase before or after tomorrow, you can still use the coupon code to receive 20% off until the 28th!
