Make no mistake about it – great taste runs in the family – or in the Middle Aged Mama family at least …
Great Taste Runs in the Family: My Daughter
Miss 18 and I both fell in love with the same shirt at the Billabong outlet at DFO recently – it was only $9.95, so we both ended up buying it. (Oh and I don’t want to know who wore it better; the fact that she’s 18, slender and has legs up to her armpits makes any comparisons just a little unfair 😉 … )
It’s probably the first time we’ve bought something similar; the fact that I’m a size 14, and she’s a size 8, plus the thirty year age difference, means that we don’t often go for the same styles. But I think it could become more of a problem now she has hit adulthood!
Great Taste Runs in the Family: My Sister
My sister and I have often made a beeline for the same item of clothing when we are out shopping together, much to the amusement of our daughters. Although we’ve never turned up at a social occasion in the exact same outfit (yet!), we do have an uncanny ability to buy the same clothes without realising.
For example, last month when I posted a pic on social media of myself wearing black jeans, striped tshirt, a red cardigan and ballet flats, my niece couldn’t help but laugh. Turns out my sister, unbeknownst to me, was wearing almost exactly the same outfit on the same day!
We’ve even got the same pose down pat 😉 .
Great Taste Runs in the Family: My Stepmum
Blood isn’t necessarily thicker than water – it seems if you’re in the same family long enough, you can also develop similar taste.
Case in point: my stepmother couldn’t believe it when I posted a pic on Facebook last year of a new tunic I’d bought at Katies – as she’d bought the exact same tunic, a few weeks earlier!
I often wonder if other families are the same …
So tell me – does great taste run in YOUR family?!
