Two weeks that we have been in our new 'Back To School' routine and the holidays and the South of France seem already far away...Leaving Summer behind is definitely a bit tough, especially with young kids.
However, I also like the start of a new school year. It means new schedule, teacher, friends, activities, hopes, small fears and a contagious energy to embrace the unknown.
Looking at the kids wardrobe, I like the transition clothing, smooth bridge between Summer and Fall : cardigans layered on top of light blouses, cute knee-high socks. Finishing any look with timeless leather shoes such as the Aster ones is adding this French twist that you will notice in any French lower/middle school yards. This is a nice alternative to sneakers while the kids can still run and play thanks to their rubber soles. I also like their versatility as they are unisex and go as well with a pair of pants or a dress/skirt.
To celebrate "Back To School", I imagined some French outfits, inspired by the beautiful items from the designers we carry in the Belle Vie Paris boutique as well as by this retro vintage flavor I really like.
Bienvenue in the Belle Vie Paris school yard!
