What to Wear to Kindergarten – Euro Edition

It’s Betty Blair’s turn! (Fun fact: Betty is our only child with no middle name.) If Betty was in the US, she would be attending Kindergarten. Here, she’ll be attending the final year of Maternelle.

For some reason that I can no longer remember, I hadn’t shopped for Betty in ages. Everything she owned was either too small or stained and worn. So her wardrobe received a pretty complete overhaul. She seems very happy with the new clothes and thought modeling for these shots was the bees knees. Betty loves school and I’m betting she’ll be the first Blair kid to be fluent in French.

Find the whole series here.

P.S. I included an image of Betty’s lunchbox. I picked it up at a tag sale and Betty was NOT interested. But we tied on a big red bow and that made it acceptable. : )

– Orangey/red polkadot dress, houndstooth coat, jeans, pink pants, grey pullover with white bow, grey cableknit tights, navy stripe dress, red tights from H&M Kids.
– Charcoal grey cardigan and burgundy ruffle front henley from Zara Kids (last year)
– Purple leggings, tunic and scarf, from DPAM.
– Green/Blue booties from Joy Folie.
– Denim jumper from Petit Bateau.
– Red tiny-gingham top, teal scarf from Okaidi.
– Red shoes from Carrefore grocery store.
– Denim jacket from Target (2 years ago).

  1. Your kids are all so adorable! Betty looks like such a sweetheart. I love these little What to Wear to School entries. I’m going back to college at the end of this month, and I’m going crazy deciding what to wear. One things for sure: fuchsia stockings and mustard wedges.

  2. Hi! I love these posts! My son will wear a uniform, so I can’t reallyshop much, but we’ll choose things to enjoy the weekends in style even if covered in sand or mud! :). All the best from Barcelona,

  3. Hi! I was just going through all these post, and I really I love each and every one of it ! Note just because you guys have taken time to write it, but reading about these adorable kids is so comforting. These comments triggers a nostalgic feeling. I remember the days I spent with my children

  4. Just back from our adventures…and my twins are starting school in 2 days. … The theme here tends toward “clown”. Your Betty Blair doesn’t need a middle name-she just needs to have her full name used at all opportunities! My MIL is a Betty without a middlename too. I will spend days catching up on my fav websites..your escpecially.

  5. I was so happy when I saw the orange polka dot dress on your little girl. I bought the same one a couple weeks ago for my 5 year old starting Kindergarten tomorrow. Since it seems that you shop quite a bit from H&M how do you find their sizing to run in children’s clothes. Would you say true to size? Some items are tagged as 4-5, 5-6 etc. and others 2-4 and 4-6. I always get so confused. Would really appreciate your feedback!

  6. She looks great! I hope you will do a similar post for Baby June too! It would be great to see how the Europeans dress their little ones (I’m guessing not plastered with Elmo, Micky Mouse, etc.). Have a great day!

  7. Gab, You wore a nearly identical denim jumper on your first day of school in Dixie. Do you have that picture or do I? xox Mom
