I love clothes. I have for as long as I can remember. I also love to match my clothes. I am not talking about wearing colors that go together, I am talking about all out coordinating outfits down to the socks and shoes and accessories. In college I would even match my bra and underwear to my outfit. It was a form of art to me.
I think that it all goes back to my aunt, who used to paint earrings to match our wardrobe exactly. If you had a plaid shirt that you loved, she would paint that plaid pattern onto the earring for you. It was details like this that made it fun to put an outfit together. It is what gave me the passion I have today! Thanks Auntie Jill! : )
So, people should not be surprised that I also like to match my son. Sometimes our match is subtle, like we are both wearing browns. But, sometimes it is total twin, we both have on our jean jackets, blue shirts and khakis This is not to say that I dress my son like a girl, no sir! He is always dressed like a boy! It is a challenge that I look forward to every day "What am I going to dress my little king in today?.... now, what am I going to wear?" I love it when people notice! My hard work is appreciated! You never know when a photo opportunity will come up and we want to look good in our pics.
My Dear Husband would never let me match him when we got married, he thought it was lame (go figure!) However, since we have our son he has started to like to coordinate as a family (or at least humor me). I know that I only have a short time before my little king will start to have an opinion of his own about what he wants to wear, so I am taking advantage of it now! Someday I hope to have a sibling to match to their brother! What fun!
