Tie Neck Blouse + Link-Up

One of the biggest trends this Fall is the tie-neck blouse.  Its everywhere you look and quite an easy trend to wear.  It falls in with the 70's inspired look in a feminine classy way.  We love the flowing ease of these silk blouses.
 It's so fun being able to share this blog together.  Because of our distance its hard for us to do pictures together.  
We'd thought we'd switch things up a bit today by joining "together" in this post and sharing some fun facts about us.

~ We are identical twins.
~ Born 11 minutes apart.
~ I have a birthmark on my leg which helped our parents tell us apart as babies.  (When we look back at our baby pictures, it's impossible to tell us apart!)
~ Our parents dressed us alike for the first few years.  I wore accents of blue and Katey wore accents of red.
~ In Middle School and High School we were doubles tennis partners.
~ We went to the same college - Miami University of Ohio and majored in Dietetics.  Neither one of us ended up working in our major.
~ Katey joined a sorority.  I did not.  
~I am a huge dog lover.  Katey likes dogs but is timid after being "attacked"/"knocked down" by a huge dog as a little girl.
~ We both prefer chic flicks or suspense movies over scary.
~ My youngest son and Katey's oldest daughter were born 10 days apart, unplanned.
~ Both of us don't really like long sleeves.  Most of the time you'll see us with our long-sleeves rolled or pushed up.
~ I love white wine and Katey loves red.
~Neither one of us has a tattoo!
~We both love making lists and crossing items off!
~We both have natural curly hair, that we straighten every day.

We'd love to hear a random fact or two about yourself!!

  2. I love how feminine the blouses make each of these looks. It's an easy way to dress up jeans and still be casual. xo

  6. I had no idea this was a 'twin' blog. Here I thought it was one person the whole time! Love the floral blouse, but I don't think I'll ever wear a shirt with bow-tie. They wouldn't look good on me. Love them on you gals though!

    1. So funny! We get that quite a bit. Since we are so far away and can't take pics together it makes it difficult. So glad we did a post like this!
      Next time we're in town together we are going to take lots of pictures! hehe
      Thanks!
