Twinning With Adam In Calvin Klein

Seeing Double In Calvin Klein Sweatshirts

Adam and I like to dress similarly sometimes as we have a very similar personal style to one another. Since he does blogging too for menswear, he suggested that we do a joint photoshoot and we got my mum to take the photos. It actually ended up taking a long time to get the shots right as we kept laughing, something would go wrong, my mum wouldn’t focus it correctly etc., it was eventful, ha ha! Who knew having two people could be twice as much work!

Anyway, we decided to match in our Calvin Klein Logo Sweatshirts, so I went for a Heather Grey (click here to buy it) and Adam had a Charcoal shade. I went for my GRLFRND Candice Skinny Jeans in Love Hangover and Adam went for the Frame Le Skinny de Jeans in Westwell. Then for the shoes, we both opted for our Golden Goose Superstar Sneakers as we have very similar pairs. We do actually own the same jeans, so we could have gone matching entirely, but we thought it was best to opt for different colours so that it wasn’t too much – we don’t want to be identical twins after all.

I actually enjoyed doing a double shoot so much that we did another one a few weeks ago as well, which was very Autumn inspired, but I will be sharing that one after Christmas since I have so much content already planned for the rest of this month. Sometimes we often think about matching other pieces we have, but when the items have sold out because one of ours is older, it can be difficult to find them. I often end up looking around on second hand places for those types of things, which can be great if someone is selling an item you wanted a few seasons ago, plus you don’t have to worry about the price as it would usually be cheaper than the RRP anyway.

Obviously eBay is a good place, but it often drives me mad and causes me issues, Vestiaire is fantastic for it, but due to their selling fees, a lot of the prices are hiked up beyond what they should be, so I’ve been having a look at Micolet UK, a second-hand clothing store that stocks a lot of my favourite items and brands, but the prices are insane! As an example, there’s numerous Calvin Klein pieces on there, if you wanted to shop mine and Adam’s look for a lot less, as well as some very similar jeans, so you don’t always have to pay retail. Like I mentioned, I don’t pay retail for many things, I’m always using discount codes and waiting for sales.

Anyway, as a final note, it’s very nearly Christmas, and since I wrote my post on ‘The Magic Of Christmas – Is It Lost?‘ I actually haven’t been feeling hugely Christmas-sy at all, in a weird way. Of course I’ve been watching movies and listening to the music, enjoying the decorations, but in my mind, it doesn’t feel like it, I haven’t even worn a Christmas jumper yet and I’ve usually done three by now, and I’m wondering if that’s due to how fast the end of the year has gone, or due to the weather. It has cold dips for a couple of days, but it’s a steady 8-10C usually and it’s oddly warm for the end of December, which is confusing me so much, where’s the snow? Ha ha. I hope you enjoyed this double outfit as something different, and do let me know if you want to see more like this! Lorna xx.

    Oh what a fun photo shoot! You two look great in your similar outfits! πŸ™‚ It is tricky finding places to buy second hand that aren’t too expensive, ebay here in Australia isn’t the best as it’s so expensive to ship, easily $9 before you’ve even bid on anything!

    Hope that you are having a great week πŸ™‚ We have had the week off with the kids and have just been doing Christmas activities – it’s been so fun! We’ve gone to two separate snow themed events, even though it’s the middle of summer here, haha!

    I love twinning! I am a big fan of it so I say do more! πŸ™‚ Love the sweatshirts you both wore and it’s such a comfy piece – win, win! I was feeling bah humbug about Christmas for a different reason. I was going to blog about it but didn’t make the time to think out my thoughts. I eventually will I am sure of it but the gist is I feel like everyone is so busy. People that we call family and friends have hardly any time to spend time with us so it begs a different question. I have a little one and the lack of solidarity bothers me so it was giving me bad mood vibes. Happy Friday and wishing you a fabulous weekend!

    This is such a happy and joyful set of photos. πŸ™‚ It’s great to see all of the laughter and smiles.

    The paired outfits look good and I like how you’ve opted for similar rather than same as I think you’re probably right that a complete match would be too much… but, having said that, it might still be interesting to see. πŸ˜‰

    It’s definitely more work with more people in it. You should see how my husband struggles taking the photos for all 3 of us…LOL!!! There’s always one of us looking somewhere else or talking!!
    These turned out super cute, Lorna!

    You guys look adorable in your matching outfits. It is practical when a couple enjoys similar styles…you can always swap things like oversize sweaters.

    this is a great twinning combo. The photos are wonderful, your mother has done a great job. Happy New Year!

    I love the matching CK jumpers! You guys look so cute together. I know what you mean about the weather. We have not had snow yet this year, just rain. Though i think 4 Christmases ago it was 70 degrees here that is more or less summer weather. It was nuts. I did not like it.

    I love how the both of you look with your matching CK sweaters! The different colors look great together and glad you enjoyed the photoshoot! Oh man, I avoid eBay for similar reasons. I’m the same when it comes to finding good deals! Discount or bust!

    Dear Lorna, your mother did a great job! I love your pictures in partner look! The looks are cool btw and you remembered me I own the same sweater but have even to admit I never have worn it so far πŸ™‚ Like you I often look for second hand pieces … although sometimes this can be challenging πŸ™‚
    Happy New Year!
