If you’re a devout Francophile like myself, chances are you’re smitten with Saint James. Their classic marinière (sailor) stripes are iconic French fashion. Made in France at their atelier near Mont-Saint-Michel, the brand’s history spans an impressive 128 years. I highly recommend reading their story, as well as this piece written by my friend Lindsey Tramuta. Needless to say, creating and sharing content on their behalf is an honor for me. I may have squealed a little bit seeing my children in their first Breton stripes – they wore them for Bastille Day and their fifth birthday, which happen to coincide! Henry is wearing the Minquiers T-Shirt + Marie is in the Coquillage dress…more photos below!
We spent the morning at Longwood Gardens and it was the perfect backdrop – there’s no shortage of green, and certain areas feel like the French countryside. The kids were feeling very affectionate that day…that sweet smile you see on Henry above is the face he made seeing his sissy coming towards him. Their love melts me – I’m so glad I caught this hug on camera. Merci mille fois to Saint James for outfitting Henry et Marie – their clothes were gifted in exchange for this post. All words and opinions are my own as always, thank you for supporting the brands that we love. Stay tuned for more!
