So I’ve been mulling over this whole thing about couples that has been on my mind lately. For me, part of the interest is the way that people start to merge their individual styles together to create a look that sets them apart as a pair. I love it when you see people who clearly just belong together. I’ve been observing this recently on the street and I’m going to post a few examples up here of what I mean over the next couple of days.
I wonder, do we seek out people who look like us or do we blend together once we’re an item? I’m not sure, maybe a bit of both, but either way, I’m loving the way these guys look together.

    ‘we wear the same clothes coz we feel the same’

      @ Sarah Yes, and I love that. Although only you get the white dress right? xxx

    Really like the top picture!

    Good pics, they look amazingly similar!

  5. May 17, 2012

    So, quick question: Do you know these people, or were you randomly taking pix of couples on the street? ;)

    Because you’re right, they look absolutely PERFECT together.

    And I think style often evolves from exposure. For example, my boyfriend of three years will often look to me as he stands in the closet and say, “What do you think of this together?” So my input helps shape his wardrobe.

    For us, it doesn’t happen reciprocally … because he couldn’t care much less about fashion! But I’d imagine if he did, it would — and thus our styles would mirror even more.

    Fun post — love the pix!

    • May 18, 2012

      No, I don’t know these guys, I was just observing. I like the way your tastes are evolving together, sounds good.

      • May 18, 2012

        I was wondering the same thing. I love this! I’m so glad they’re randoms! Great observation and beautiful pics! :D

  6. May 17, 2012

    Great photos! And I agree… the closer my hubby and I get and the more we live together, the more we dress alike. Case in point, I know where a lot more button up shirts (like him) and he now dresses up just a little more for everyday life!

    • May 18, 2012

      That sounds like it’s working out well, I’m addicted to shirts, wonder where I got that from…

  7. May 17, 2012

    I think it’s a bit of both! Congrats on being freshly pressed! – but they need to fix your link, I think….

  8. May 17, 2012

    Cool title and observations!

  9. May 17, 2012

    I love this post! My man’s style is a mix of Scandinavian simplicity meets rugged lumberjack, while I’m a mix of 50′s dresses and oversized granny sweaters. We somehow fit quite well together. (:

    • May 18, 2012

      That sounds like an excellent fit, and I really love the way you described yourselves, gorgeous x

  10. May 17, 2012

    Lovely thoughts :)

  11. May 17, 2012

    Great photos!


  12. May 17, 2012

    nice observation. I’ve wondering that myself as well!
    and these two couples…
    they’ve got it. so stylish, so in-sync

    • May 18, 2012

      Thanks, yes I love that they’re so relaxed with each other

  13. May 17, 2012

    Great post!

  14. May 17, 2012

    I always found it interesting to see how many couples to look the same. Never quite worked for me though. Even from the dawn of time I seemed to gravitate to completely the opposite.

    • May 18, 2012

      Well that can be good too I’m sure, maybe I should look for contrasts next..

  15. May 18, 2012

    nice post.. :) very observant of people around you.. :) I love seeing lovers on the streets as well..

  16. May 18, 2012

    What a cute couple in your digital picture. My husband and I have been married 27 years and as we grow older we still look the same just older!

  17. May 18, 2012

    Yea, it does seem to be this way. But how can an outsider tell the difference between a blend and a change?

    • May 18, 2012

      I’m not sure, I think that’s what interesting in a way, do we look for it or become it?

  18. May 18, 2012

    THese are nice pictures. Hopefully I can take pictures like this so I can someday get Freshly Pressed, too!

    • May 18, 2012

      Oh gorgeous! I love that it has a special word, thank you

  21. May 18, 2012

    Yah, noticed, people think I’m dating my sister, because with my girlfriend we look so much alike…

    • May 18, 2012

      Ha! That’s hilarious, but it can happen. The looking alike, not the dating your sister, that’s not so good I think ;)

    Great post.
    I think I’m loving the way these guys look together too, you are not alone.

  23. May 18, 2012

    Your title is very catchy! You drew me in thinking this was going to be about tennis. Thanks for slowing down the pace and giving me such food for thought.

    • May 18, 2012

      Well I’m glad I surprised you! And that you enjoyed it x

    I believe that, when couples get to know more about each other, which usually takes a considerable amount of time, they end up unintentionally dressing somewhat similarly. Either that or I’m just thinking based on experience. Interesting post, anyway!

    • May 18, 2012

      Thanks, and yes I think it’s something that evolves too.

  25. May 18, 2012

    Well… lovely…
    this is as well for older couple :-)
    belive me the maching can happen even when you are over 30 :-)
    And the results are wonderful… keep up the good novels! serenity :-)claudine

    These moments never come back dear. Unforgettable memories and sweet moments.

    • May 18, 2012

      I guess that’s what I’m trying to capture yes x

  28. May 18, 2012

    Such a wonderful analysis. Sex And The City . . . the Sequel? Congrats on being FP’d!

  29. May 18, 2012

    Nice observation, I think that maybe because what we wear is a reflection of who we are our syles show that and although the saying goes opposites attract I really think you have to be alike in fundamentals to make it work … hence the similar style

  30. May 18, 2012

    This is a really interesting observation. It makes me wonder if my husband and I were walking along that street together that day if you would have thought that same about us.

    • May 18, 2012

      I wonder, do you think you have similar style?

      • May 19, 2012

        It’s funny, initially I would have said no. However after seeing your post it made me go back and look more closely. I think our styles are beginning to collide.

  31. May 18, 2012

    I suppose I would wear the same color with him as the match point.Very interesting to enjoy you guys’ different point of views~~~;P

    • May 18, 2012

      Thanks! Yes, really interesting to hear what you think x

  32. May 18, 2012

    The first pictute is gotten a great shot. The sun is the cream of the image :) Makes it somehow warm and calm, kind of peaceful.

  33. May 19, 2012

    Really sweet pictures and concept! I am 13 so it’s fun observing people on the street with my friends who look really perfect for each other! Nice work and congrats on being freshly pressed!

  34. May 19, 2012

    So, what makes these couples look like they belong together?


  35. May 20, 2012

    This is a cute post, and I really like both your blog title and your post title. Also, I have heard this said before about people looking like their dogs, and people picking out a dog breed based on their personality.

    Congrats in being Freshly Pressed!

    • May 20, 2012

      Thanks! And yes, totally agree about dogs and their owners.It always reminds me of that first scene in 101 Dalmations..

    what cute couples! to see the feeling of satisfaction on their faces… waw. isn’t that great, to really know that there’s somone for you somewhere?

  38. May 20, 2012

    I think, the more you get close to someone, the more you develop the intimacy. And when you feel its warmth, you discover the real spice of life. ;)

    Congrats on being freshly pressed!

    I love the first photo! And I think couples grow together and begin to blend

    Nice shots, the first couple really melted! Thank you for sharing,

    I think we find the things we like in the other and pick it up for ourselves. After a while, a happy medium is found. I haven’t been in a relationship in a while, but being a hopeless romantic, this is one of the things I have always loved about watching couples.

    • June 1, 2012

      yes, after a while you don’t know who it came from?

      • June 1, 2012

        Probably not, but you also don’t care. It is a grand thing, I think.

        • June 1, 2012

          Agreed! I love your sentiment, thanks for the comment x
