Accidental twins

Yesterday afternoon was sunny and gorgeous, so Toby and I met friends at Washington Square Park. Everything was going swimmingly...until I realized that I was dressed exactly--exactly--like my friend's four-year-old son. I sometimes tease myself for dressing like a ten-year-old boy, but I guess I was six years off. :)

P.S. I need to wear these wedges.

carina said...

This is SO funny!:-D

You both look cute. What a shame you're not the same size so you can borrow from each other;-)

Jennifer said...

haha that's great! My husband and I sometimes do this where we'll both throw on some jeans and a stripey shirt and put on our coats. Once we get to wherever we're going, the coats come off and we're twins for the rest of the evening:)

This picture kills me. So hilarious. I think this would be a good idea for a blog that just posted pictures of women and little boys wearing the same outfits. I would love to look at that... I think you're on to something! http://hauteamericana.com/

My sister and I always, ALWAYS, show up places dressed alike, with neither of us having had any way of knowing what the other would be wearing.
Just chalk it up to great minds and all that jazz ;)

Rachel said...

One time I realized with horror that I was wearing the same outfit as FAT ALBERT (the cartoon!). Your matching ensemble is much cuter! I guess it just goes to show you that stripes + chucks are classic!

megan said...

Ha! That made me laugh out loud! Well, you both look ADORABLE! :)

hello. said...

aw, classic + stylish fashion knows no bounds! :)

Lemanie said...

Aww!! It is a classic look tho! I'd wear it! =)

Hi!
You made me and my mom wonder about butterfly effect. You see, a few days ago she bought me some piece of clothing and didn't want to tell what it was (I am in a boarding school and was supposed to receive this thing today). And now, suddenly, she calls me and tells to visit Your blog (of which she's a great fan). She asked me if I like the striped shirt and after my positive response just said ,,That's good''. I don't think it's necessary to add what kind of clothing she bought...
BTW, I want o say we both admire your blog and your wonderful photos (mainly photos as my mom's English is not so good).
Greetings from the other side of the world

Amy said...

Imagine that poor kid having to explain to his friends that he was dressed like a 30+-year-old mom. ;-)

Sarah Bosserman said...

Oh my goodness how cute! I think we've all fallen victim to "dressing like a boy" at some point. But is it our fault that those soft t-shirts and Chuck Taylers are so cute?? :)

Ladies Holiday said...

That is hilarious...though you get away with cute...if you had dressed to match your husband that would just be weird.

Barbara said...

Joanna you don't need wedges, you juest need some accessories, like some nice gold bracelets, a watch and a coloured necklace.

Jewelry is what normally differenciates me from my 3 years old son.

super cute! i've shown up places wearing the same attire as a friends' kids (red saltwater sandals come to mind) - it's cool when fashion crosses age lines.

kLr said...

Haha that is great!
I was sitting in class today as the professor and a friend of mine walked in one after the other...dressed exactly alike. Khakis and a blue polo. It was pretty hilarious to look at!

elisa said...

Adorable! But, perhaps, he is dressed like a 30 year-old woman :)

esther said...

Hilarious!

Catherine said...

Hilarious!!

I dress just like you, have done since the age of 14 I think. I remember my father saying to me one day "Catherine, when are you going to dress like a girl?". I reminded him of this a few years back and he was horrified he'd ever uttered it.

He is quite a hip 4 yr old, I must say!

Beth said...

P.S. Cute outfits. :)

J+H @ Beyond The Stoop said...

i've had those shoes in an open browser on my phone since the fist day you posted.... i'm totally in love too.

though, i think i've already hit my limit of $100+/pair shoes this year. stupid cute styles!! haha

tigerhearts said...

it's more like that boy is dressed like a girl.

Diva Naomi Addy said...

Very cute!!!

Jody said...

So adorable!!

major284 said...

That is hilarious! A few months ago I was waiting for a friend outside of a junior high school. I was dressed very casually (converse, jeans, hoody) and felt comfortable. And then the kids got out of school, and it's like they were wearing their school uniform, only I was, too! All the boys AND girls were wearing the same thing as me. I went home and decided that sometimes I should try to look at least a little bit more grown up! Short ladies like me need all the help we can get to make sure we don't blend in with the kids!

Vanessa said...

Love this!!

LOL Hilarious!!! Too cute

Jamie B said...

One day I arrived at work, sat down at my desk and my manager knocks and walks in my office to talk to my office mate and me. I turn around and slowly realize he and I are wearing the same outfit. Dark blue jeans, brown belt, brown boots (though mine are tall), a bright salmon shirt, and a navy cardigan. I laugh HYSTERICALLY and am barely able to point out our matching outfits. Though he usually has a good sense of humor, a 40-year-old man is apparently not amused by matching clothes with a 20-something girl. To this day, I still laugh when I think about it. Just one of those funny coincidences in life. :)

Kara said...

Love it! That is one highly-fashionable four year old. Stripes, converse and skinny jeans are definitely one of my go-to outfits, so I guess I dress like a four-year-old too.

Alice said...

In that case, I think I do too!

Pesky Cat Designs said...

Too funny! You both look wonderful. And if you look at the lady behind you in the green sweater she is wearing the same striped shirt and jeans too! Can't see her shoes though. :)

JennySue said...

wow- hilarious!! glad you could find humor in that- you look just as cute as a 4 year old- but prettier:)

Chessa! said...

this is awesome. And I'm with you on this one...my playground uniform is quite similar to yours and this little guy's except my cons are a gold/silver glitter and sometimes I alternate them with casual boots:) ha

Luna said...

This is so cute! He must've thought he dressed like a girl.

VLS said...

This is effing HILARIOUS! The same exact thing happened to my friend at the Barcelona airport. The outfit was ankle-length black leggings, jean skirt, white top with black cardie, and converse. We quickly snapped a photo of her and the five year-old girl and laughed for ages.
Really gets you feeling feminine and ladylike, aye?

anne. said...
