Life Lesson No. 1

Sometimes things happen in life that you just have to share….and you hope that your friends will learn from your mistakes or your wise, wise advice!

Recently a friend of mine wanted to purchase one of my skirts.  She asked what I wear with mine.  I told her I wear my tall boots, white tee and jean jacket.  She ended up buying a skirt and one of my purses.  Obviously she has amazing taste.

Moving on.

We had made plans to take our children to the ballet A Midsummer Nights Dream. We were meeting in town and driving together to Denver.  We met at Starbucks to fuel up with caffeine (of course). 

We both got out of our cars with the SAME OUTFIT ON!!!! 

I am yelling, "NO……NO… said you were not wearing it until Sunday". 

My friend equally mortified yelled, "We have to do SOMETHING.  Where can I go to get new clothes"? 

I informed her that we were already running late and we needed to leave immediately. 

Dressing alike as adults is not cool like when you are in elementary school. 

We looked like the biggest dorks!!! 

We were going to the opera house in Denver and we were trying not to walk together… was no use….people were still staring.  Not the good kinds of stares.  The "Why are those dorks wearing the same outfit? They look like complete morons!"

I  thought you would like to see some pictures from the day.  I hope you like this photo…the memory had to be preserved and my son took it….hence the reason we have no heads!





The life lesson is…………..always talk to a friend who has the same clothes as you before you go out in public together!  You can thank me later!!!

    I am ROFLOL…now what is the chance of that happening? I bet the kids really enjoyed the dorky Moms too! Isn’t it fun to regress sometimes? And to think…you even have pictures to back it up!

    I love this!! What did the KIDS think? Were they equally mortified? You’ll laugh about this one forever. Hey, who cares what people think, anyway? πŸ˜‰

    That is hilarious! You do look like dorks, but really stylish, cute dorks. I love the purse that she has. That is one that I almost bought. I am a bit jealous that I didn’t. It looks so cute!

    Priceless! I was peeking at your Etsy store and I couldn’t help noticing what great names you give your picture frames. Especially the ‘Heather Frame.’ Very cute. πŸ™‚

  12. Jennifer

    What a great story. But really, I don’t think you two looked like ‘dorks’, it was a really cute outfit!!

    Ha ha ha ha! I wish I could have seen it! Thanks for putting up photos of this hilarious event. I love the antique effect you put on your photos. It really makes it feel like a memory (maybe it helps you to laugh a little earlier to think of it as a memory already)

  15. Lissa

    Oh, this story is to funny. But to be honest you guys look adorable! They look like cute photos for Romantic Living or something! Maybe people were just staring because they wanted a piece of your style. Or at least that’s what I would tell myself. πŸ™‚

  17. LuAnn

    I wish you’d said something. I would have let one of you borrow my bag, made of the same fabric! LOL

  18. Tara

    Hilarious!! I LOVE this story Jeanne…my mom and I have to do this..we shop together and we always have the same purses and shoes and tops, I have to call on ask her what she is wearing when we have a lunch date. Great minds think alike I guess! Love the skirts and the outfits, what a fun bunch you are!

    Well at least with your heads out of the picture they won’t have to put the black tape over your eyes in the back of Glamour magazine on the do’s and don’ts page. However they will need another shot that show each of you separately for the do picture as it is a fabby look on both of you.

  20. Lori

    OHMYGOSH!!! that is so funny:) you both look adorable…i am SURE that is why everyone was staring!!!

  21. Amy Muffoletto

    Okay I don’t think they were staring to say you 2 were morons….they were staring trying to figure out where they could get the cutest outfits ever. I love it. You both are precious. love the photos.

  22. traci

    oh that is hilarious. at least the outfit was adorable. a few years ago, 3 of my girlfriends and i were headed out on a beautiful spring day to go shopping. we all showed up in khaki’s and a black shirt. we got lots of looks that day.
