Here is the third and final installment of our 2013 What to Wear to School posts, featuring the lovely Olive & June. This is a bit of a landmark post, because it’s the first year that June has had interest in participating. And boy was she interested! She thought the whole experience was pretty much the funnest thing ever and kept bringing me additional pieces of clothing that she felt should be included — Mom?! What about my watermelon pajamas? Mom! My slippy slops!! (Which is how she pronounces ‘flip flops’.)
Olive has had a big growth spurt since last year and her wardrobe is pretty much entirely new. In contrast with June, who is mostly wearing clothes we bought in France last fall/winter (most are from our favorite French grocery store), sprinkled with hand-me-downs. I confess, I will be sad to retire her little clothes. But on the bright side, it was so fun to have her join in the fun this year.
I hope you enjoy the tour!
Houndstooth Dress from Gapkids (sold out online, but the polka dot version is cute too!). Yellow Knit Tights from H&M. Leather Ballet Flats are hand-me-downs from Maude, purchased at Carrefore, a French grocery store.
Floral Scarf from Zara Kids, Striped Dress and Grey Knit Tights from Carrefore, Leather Boots are hand-me-downs from Betty. And Betty wore them as hand-me-downs from our friend Kathryn (I don’t know the brand, but you can find similar here.)
Pink Blouse and Grey Corduroy Jumper and Pink Knit Tights from Carrefore. Boots are listed above.
And that’s a wrap! Now I’d love to hear what you think. Would your kids wear any of these outfits? Is Olive still channeling a French influence, or is her wardrobe looking très Américain? Does your 3 year old dress like June?
I sincerely hope you’ve enjoyed this year’s wardrobe tours. If you’d like to see more, you can find all the What to Wear to School posts here. Hooray for Back to School!
