Spring keeps teasing us here in Paris. We’ll get a really brilliant sunny day in between several cold and gray ones. It’s almost like you can hear a communal « Aaaaaaah! » throughout Pairs when the random gorgeous day glitters down upon us. and then a disappointed chorus of « Boooooo. » when we wake up the next day and see the drizzle or feel the chill. It was a couple Sundays ago, I think we all returned to work on Monday with a light pinkish hue on our fresh faces. Just about all of Paris was out lounging along the river banks of the Seine. I even ran into Sylvia of Finding Noon.
I keep reminding myself it IS still March. And then we have the manic weather of April to get through too. They have a saying in French : « En avril, ne te découvre pas d’un fil. En mai, fais ce qu’il te plait! » Meaning, keep your sweater/coat on in April, but in May you’re in the clear! (more or less).
But… all that said, I am in the mood for spring fashion, and I have friends’ weddings to go to this summer and plenty of picnics to plan, so I am going to go ahead and let my imagination wanter to warm Spring days full of champagne lunch dates and château weddings… (right, as if that’s all I do. Ha!). Anyway, back to the daydream… I am thinking a light navy blue hue with ivory cream colored accents this Spring. I know the color palette in all the fashion houses and covering all the glossy pages is a much more modern and bolder array of colors (think citrus yellow and emerald green), but I tend to be less of a modern when it comes to apparel. I don’t get over-adventurous with my wardrobe, in fact, a pair of slacks, a solid color basic toned top with a little lace or a silk blouse and a well cut vest jacket is my favorite thing to wear. But here we are dreaming of special Spring occasions, and fancy Parisian outings. So I put together a lovely little ensemble, as your ticket of admission into Spring (because Spring actually sprung several days ago…)
Enjoy the ride
