As promised, I’ve made a list of all the sources for our clothing and accessories from the Modern Kids shoot. I keep using the term “French Greys”. I don’t think it’s an official term, but I’ve noticed that pretty much every clothing store here in France carries options in muted greys. They are warm greys — some even lean to purple, like a dove grey. Others are sort of creamy.

I love the look! When I was a design student, I had a box of warm grey Prismacolor pencils and I used to admire them when I was bored during class. I feel the same way about the grey clothing and I love that it’s easy to find here.

June is wearing a dress by Marie Chantal. It is a hand-me-down from a neighbor in New York and used to be worn by Betty. Collars on baby dresses can drive me mad! So I use a needle and thread to tack them down. Her gold moccasins are by Freshly Picked.

Betty is wearing a dress from Old Navy. It was actually Olive’s First Day of Kindergarten dress. Her sweater and shoes are by Du Pareil au même (DPAM). She is wearing a string of pink pearls given to me by my Grandma Daisy. Her hairclip is from H&M — from maybe 4 or 5 years ago.

Oscar is DPAM’d out — pants, shirt, scarf and shoes.

Olive is pretty DPAM’d too. She’s wearing this dress underneath, and this dress as a top layer. Shoes are the flats she wore at Christmas, from GapKids. Her necklace is by TrueBirds. She wore a cut rose from one of our rose bushes in her hair.

Maude is wearing a DPAM dress too. (It also comes in white!) Her hair piece is by TrueBirds (hair tutorial coming soon…). Her necklace is by Leslie Lewis Designs. Her glitter flats are from GapKids, also from Christmas.

Ralph’s jacket is by Zara Kids. His sweater, pants and driving mocs are from DPAM.

I’m wearing a dress and cardigan with pearl buttons from Benetton. My espadrilles are by Toni Pons. The key on my necklace was grabbed from the collection in the treehouse.

Ben is wearing cords from Banana Republic, button down by Brooks Brothers, sweater by Harris Wilson and his sneakers are Le Coq Sportif.
