I’ve been lucky to be able to collaborate with lots of brands since creating my blog. But this new partnership with Soludos might be my favorite to date not only because I have been in love with the brand for years, but because I got to do it with my sister! She’s my biggest fan, my best bud, and she knows me better than anyone. Even though we are actually four years apart, people have confused us for twins ever since I can remember.
A few weeks ago, I spent the weekend back in Newburyport where I grew up spending the summer with my family. We wore matching Venetian Mid-heel Booties, hung out at the beach, grilled food on the dock and cuddled my sister’s baby, Ellery. I never feel more myself than I do back there. I think that I hit the family jackpot in a lot of ways and that’s something that I have come to appreciate more and more over the years. I find reasons to fly back east whenever I can (often once a month) and it makes me feel like I live a lot closer than I actually do.
Here is a Q&A that I did for Soludos that I wanted to share with you guys to get to know a little more about my sister.
What one word best sums up your relationship? Loyal
One thing you would like to steal from her closet? Her jewelry. She has the most incredible vintage styles (and I think this counts because she hangs them in her closet!)
Dream destination for a trip together? A little ocean town or anywhere with wine.
Best personality attribute in your sister? Calm, comforting, and rational. She’s always kept me sane when I am dealing with some sort of life struggle. When I get emotional, she lays out at all the facts and it helps me feel so much better.
What is her most remarkable talent? Her memory. She notices when I’ve rearranged small things in my place, she remembers stories that I told her years ago, and she always knows where she’s going. Without her, I’m often lost!
