Sisterly Love

SisterlyLove

| PHOTOS | by the great Jamie Beck

There’s nothing in the world quite like having a sister. Mine was in town for a recent week, and I was so grateful for every minute of it. We grew up 6 years apart, meaning she was in grade school while I was in driver’s ed ~ and as such we didn’t have a lot in common as kids. But as grown-ups we’ve become indescribably close; we just get each other. We’ve even figured out how to fight as succinctly and efficiently as possible. There’s simply an unspoken understanding ~ we even coordinate our outfits without meaning to! Happens all the time.

Jamie Beck captured these candids of my sister and me at a luncheon we all attended, to celebrate Alice + Olivia‘s upcoming collaboration with Magnum Ice Cream. I wore: The Row sunnies, Cotton Candy coat (previously seen HERE, HERE and HERE), Zara dress (also worn HERE), Lena Erziak bag (last carried HERE), YSL wedges (featured HERE and HERE) // Erin wore: Pinkyotto coat, Rosebud dress, Ann Taylor belt, Corello bag, Dolce Vita shoes

    My oldest sister and I are 6 years apart too and I looked up to her on every little thing in her life. I ended up going to the same university she was the first person who approved of my decision to do so.  You and your sister look gorgeous! :)

    I agree, I’m at least 6/7 years younger than my sisters and although I was probably pretty annoying to say the least whilst growing up, we’ve really gotten close as adults. This post is just lovely! I like how you both have your own unique sense of style, even when sporting similar outfits!

    You two look gorgeous together!!
    I totally understand what you mean. My sister and me are six years apart, too. As kids we were just like “normal” sisters due to the age difference but since we grew older (I am 25 she’s 31) we’re like best friends. We understand each other without saying a word and I wouldn’t be the same person today if I hadn’t had such a great older sister. There’s a German saying, literally translated it would be like “We’re like a head and a butt” :) meaning we’re so close as if we were one person.

    you’re absolutely right…there is nothing in the world like having a sister.  My sister and I are three years apart and we are now inseparable.  We live across the street from each other in the city and we’re raising our girls together.  It’s the most heart-warming thing to see our babies hug each other and play together.
