While you'll see snappily-dressed Americans and can occasionally spot a dumpy French person, I do find the stereotype to be true overall. A simple shirt and jeans is dressed up with a casually-strewn scarf that I would never be able to pull off.
Even the kids wear designer duds; a 2-year-old at the creche was wearing DKNY jeans the other day.
So I thought it'd be fun to show you some school photos as proof:
|"Hey, ladies," my French-American son says, as he leans back on the couch.|
|My husband, his sister, and a jaunty French beret.|
|My brother after sticking his finger in an electric socket.|
|I didn't own a brush in 1989.|
|These sleeves don't quit. Seriously, you'll have to fire them.|
No, it's definitely the Columbus Day themed background. Who knew it was a photo-snapping holiday? "I want to remember Columbus Day 1991 forever. I know just the outfit. Fingers crossed it's Surprise School Photo Day!"
So, who came out on top? The French or the Americans? Hint: It's the Columbus Day photo for the win!
