Tandem Dressing

Some people call wearing the same shirt or clothes with another person as 'tandem dressing'. Some would call it 'couple shirt'.

In my case, with my daughter Julia, I call it M&M for Mom and Me, or J&J for Joy and Julia. Since the day Julia was born, I've been addicted buying the same clothes for us girls.

I've noticed that wearing the same clothes gives my daughter and I that special bonding. We connect so much. She's always the first person in our house who can detect if I'm worried, sad, mad, confused or plainly staring at nothingness.

I am lucky I'm short (in this tandem dressing matter only! Other than that, I wish I'm taller...) I get to buy clothes at the children's section. Our favorite stores are Kids of Bayo, Gingersnap and Orange Juice. I would sometimes buy online just so to satisfy this want to dress-up in pair. I find it cute! Bear with me please, I'm super cheesy...


For you and your special someone, try to buy the same shirt and see if that special connection develops. You don't necessarily have to wear the same shirt at the same time. Just think of it this way: If your special someone wears that shirt, that person will remember you...whether you're apart or not...

  8. Tetcha: You and your son can also do tandem dressing. There's plenty of cute unisex shirts at Kids of Bayo. Catch their 50% sale para parang isa lang din binili mo. That's what I do when I buy for Julia and me.
