One Outfit, Two Ways

Despite the fact that Eleri essentially has Clio's old wardrobe (with a few of her own items thrown in here and there), she is rarely caught in repeat outfist. I suppose because their personalities are so different, they just end up in different ensembles, kind of like that occasional feature in Lucky Magazine where the stylists bring a bunch of stuff to the street, grab passersby, and then photograph the different outfits they come up with using the same raw material.

That said, there is one outfit in the repertoire that just seems like it must go together, both two years ago and today: these hand-me-down red pants and this little navy striped "sailor" t-shirt. It was a favorite combo with Clio, and it is again now. Every time Eleri ends up in it, I mean to take a picture and dig up an old one of Clio wearing the same thing. And, at last, here it is.

I will admit, I kept chasing Eleri around with a toy phone yesterday, trying to "replicate" the photo for a more clear comparison, but, alas, Eleri has a mind of her own.

I'd also like to mention that my friend Rebecca, who is right there with me in this post-a-day-challenge, also did a side-by-side comparison of her kids at the same age today. Great minds?

Ha! Great minds indeed. Love it. Clio and Eleri really do look so different - yet so similar. Siblings are cool that way.

This was one of my most favorite Clio outfits, so I'm very happy to see Eleri taking on such a keen sense of fashion!
