One of the things that I love about having two little girls is that I am able to reuse some of my favorite outfits with Avery.
Although Avery’s closet isn’t entirely full of hand-me-downs, there are a lot of clothes that I saved from Harlan because I loved them too much to give them away. The girls were born in opposite seasons, so it’s been kind of challenging to reuse the outfits, but Avery is a small little girl and can still fit into many of Harlan’s 6-12 month summer clothes.
A few weeks ago, I put many of Harlan’s old summer clothes in Avery’s closet for her to wear. That night she had a pair of my favorite pajamas that Harlan used to wear all the time. I took a photo of her in our living room and, after taking it, I realized that I had a very similar photo of Harlan in the same pajamas in our living room. I love to compare how similar the girls look around the same age, especially in the same outfits. I put the photos side by side and uploaded them to Instagram with the question, “Who wore it better?”
So now I am inspired to start an Instagram Challenge so that you can show me, “Who wore it better?” between your little ones. Do you have siblings wearing the same outfit around the same age? Upload them to Instagram using the hasthtag #whoworeitbetterbaby and make sure to tag me @amommyinthecity. I’ll share a round-up of my favorites next week! I can’t wait to see your photos!
Here are some of my favorites of the girls. Tell me, who wore it better?
