My husband and I will be married 15 years this fall, and we were together for three years before that. It’s incredible how quickly those years can fly by... especially when they’re happy ones.

As a long-term couple, one of the things we’ve noticed is that our mutual influence on one another can manifest itself unintentionally in amusing ways. Here is our deep, dark secret:

Sometimes, we match our outfits.

It’s totally by accident, and that’s what makes it so funny. We’ll prepare separately for an outing or special event, then reconvene and realize we’re both wearing the same colors or similar clothing combinations. At this point, one of us decides to change, or else we just embrace it and face the world like rock stars with stylists who coordinate their wardrobes.

Increasingly, we are choosing to embrace it. Does this make us charming, or cheesy? I suspect perhaps both. Either way, however, there’s comfort in knowing that your partner is like the corresponding shoe to your mutual pair. Opposite, yet matching. Two of a kind. Is that so wrong?

And comfort is what a lot of us are looking for in this unpredictable world, especially as the days get shorter and we move into cool, crisp fall weather. In fact, I can picture my husband and I bookending it on the sofa in front of the fire, wearing cozy, coordinating slippers and loving it.

... Especially beautiful suede moccasins like these, which are Indigenous-made in North America by Bastien Industries. Lined with fleece and made with a natural sole, they’re designed for softness, warmth, and flexibility. Both the men’s and women’s design are made with natural tan moose hide, accented with rawhide laces and a hand-stitched vamp.

My favourite thing about these mocs is that they’re handcrafted by Huron-Wendat artisans at Village Huron in Quebec, Canada. This makes them authentic and extra special. I love that the women’s style includes the added touch of traditional beadwork.

I don’t know if my husband and I will ever resort to planning twin outfits on purpose, but if we ever do, these cozy moose hide moccasin slippers by Bastien are definitely the way to go!
