What to Wear to 2nd Grade

Here’s another What to Wear to School wardrobe tour, this time featuring 7-year-old Oscar. Fun fact: based on the emails he’s received, Oscar has a bit of a fan club from his roles in the Olive Us episodes. Luckily, it hasn’t gone to his head. : )

For outfit #1, Oscar is wearing a yellow polo shirt from JC Penney, sky blue khakis from a clothing store in Rome, classic checkered Vans and a striped tee from H&M.

It’s fun for me to look at these photos and see how much Oscar moves around. He is active as can be!

Oscar wears layers. They seem to work best with the always changing weather here in Normandy. For outfit #2 he’s wearing jeans from Polarn O. Pyret, a hoodie button-down from Benetton and a henley from H&M.

Oscar has a hard time putting on socks, so I’ve started buying them a size larger than he needs and now he can pull them on with ease. We bought these socks as part of a patterned pack from H&M.

It’s been interesting to see Oscar’s reading develop. He was in kindergarten when we moved here, so he’s been learning to read in both French and English. He works with Magic Treehouse books in English and Tchoupi books in French.

Oscar’s outfit #3 is his favorite. It’s the one he chose to wear on the first day of school. Jeans are the same as above. Jacket and tee are from H&M.

Oscar wanted to make sure we got plenty of photos of him being super tough. Prepare yourself.

Side note: The lizard-y creature he’s holding is awesome. It was a gift from our friends, Audrey and Nick, who picked it up in Japan. It’s made from some super-powered-glow-in-the-dark material and it holds a glow for a long time. Rad.

Not sure what this photo is about. He’s never seen Austin Powers, but he’s totally channeling Dr. Evil.

But this. No matter how tough he feels, this is how he looks most often.
