Palest yellow trousers; the heaviness of her beautifully-fitted black coat lifted by a red scarf:
At a bakery, a young woman in a marinière minidress, jacket tied round her waist, moto boots and a red bag:
Just loved her red and pink zig-zag dress; she's voluptuous but buying plants, not the must-wear-darks rule:
Another sampled fruit in a red maxiskirt:
And une fillette found a red flower for maman:
Pastels and white show up once the temperatures hit the 24C/80F range but for now, red heralds longed-for warmth, as the leaves unfurl to the sun and people's smiles seem to say, At last!
