What It is Really Like To Be A Twin

What It's Really Like To Be A Twin | adoubledose.comAs many of y’all know we are twins, and SUPER close. And, when we say we are close, we mean it. Literally, nothing could tear us apart. We work together, currently live together, and are pretty similar overall. That does not mean we don’t fight at all times of the day. If you think you fight a lot with your siblings, think again ๐Ÿ˜‰ There is probably not a moment in the day when we are not arguing, but we wouldn’t change it for anything!We are teaming up today with LOFT to talk about Sister’s Day, and since we get asked SO many things about being a twin, and what it is really like to be a twin, we thought we would go into that a little more:) For those of you who don’t know, we are identical, and Samantha is older by 11 minutes. We were born two months early (our poor mom), and it was all Samantha’s fault! She wanted to come out, haha. It is pretty funny because we can’t live with each other, but we also can’t live without each other. One minute, we will be at each other’s throats, and the next, we act like nothing is going on, and we never argued. It seems absolutely crazy, but it is our reality!What It's Really Like To Be A Twin | adoubledose.comWhat It's Really Like To Be A Twin | adoubledose.comIt is so funny because we will be arguing about anything (chores, work, household stuff, our dog, you name it), and we forget people are around, and they just think it is so entertaining and hilarious. We will be screaming (and sometimes get physical, oops!), and then a few minutes later, it is like nothing ever happened. There is just such an unexplainable bond. We literally trust each other with anything, and are so grateful every day that we have each other. We refer to each other as “hubby” because we literally fight like a married couple. We don’t know any different, but it is just so unique. In college, we majored in the same degree (Management Information Systems), and had a lot of the same classes. We were obviously a little competitive, but supported each other’s strengths and weaknesses. We always helped each other out, no matter what.What It's Really Like To Be A Twin | adoubledose.comWe are so similar that we even struggle with the same health conditions. Everything with us is pretty similar down the line. We do have a few differences in personality, of course, but health-wise, it has been a blessing to have someone that knows what you’re going through, and can fully-relate, and not make you feel crazy at times ;)What It's Really Like To Be A Twin | adoubledose.com

We always have a best friend, and there is nothing else like that. No matter who else comes into our life, the relationship we have with each other is so strong and will always be that way.  To answer common questions, we cannot feel each other’s pain, but we do feel sad or upset for the other if they are going through something difficult. We do finish each other’s sentences and repeat the same exact phrases at the same time, which is mortifying at times!

And, now about these ADORABLE outfits! We are only 5’1″, so finding dresses and jumpsuits that fit us well is so tough sometimes! We found both of these pieces at LOFT. They have a petite section, which we looooove, and they also have sizes xxs and 00, which are great! What It's Really Like To Be A Twin | adoubledose.comThis printed jumpsuit is great for summer (wearing 00 petite) and you can wear it with flats, too! Such a great vacation piece! This white lace dress is super flattering and has a great neckline. The detailing on it is gorgeous. We are wearing an xxs petite in it for reference.
