She is absolutely adorable and you can feel her style pushing through – love the neutrals and hot pops of colour. Going to show this to my daughter who is going into grade 4 in Canada – Olive’s layering is what I really want her to notice. Such a great way to let individuality come through. What a fun process!

I especially love the gray shirt with yellow scarf. Good luck in school! :)

She could be in a story or from a French movie, especially with her adorable hairstyle. She looks like a little girl, but still chic. Hope it’s a great year for her!

To me she does look European, particularly in the last shot, which could be straight out of a vintage European move (I’m thinking German or Swedish, but could just as easily be French). All of these outfits are great–I agree these may be my favorites so far.

One in my size and one for my 5th grader. So friggin cute!! I love the yellow with the blue and grey. And I love the bright tights with the skirt, one of my favorite things I saw all over the streets of Paris.

That’s a good question. I haven’t noticed any difficulty on the part of the French. Although I have the darndest time saying Blair with a French accent. : )

I hope she does look more youthful. That was definitely the goal.

She’s not in a combined class, but she was in Colorado, and because of where her birthday falls, she’s been in different grade depending on which school district we live in and their deadlines. So, if we move back to the States mid-school year (like our original plan), we’re not sure if we’ll put her in 4th or 5th grade. It will depend on the school. For her sake, we’re keeping the label vague.

I do have one question, though: do all your children honestly hand-pick these neutrals??? I have four children and I would love to dress them in [affordable] European sophistication but every time we shop together, they all gravitate toward the one hot pink/purple/rainbow/monster truck item in the store that is so blaringly tacky it just cannot be salvaged with any amount of surrounding beige accessories! And if I ever buy my daughters things they don’t pick themselves, they are much more likely to pass those items over when they dress in the morning and I feel like I’ve wasted $. Any suggestions? Should I just let them pick their sparkle unicorn T’s and be fine with it? :) How do you gently nudge your children in a less-traveled fashion direction?
