A young woman in striped pants, green shell, and a smile as brilliant as the day:
Nearby, a different green palette, khaki, a striped shirt and a floral scarf combining greens and earth tones:
One of my favourites is mint, a colour you don't see often in a coat!
The first florals are out: soft-shell pants on an expressive platinum blonde:
Her vibrant scarf caught my eye; what an effortless way to bring a grey sweater into spring. A closer look shows why; it is a museum scarf from a Picasso exhibition. We both wanted one!
Another touch of grey, a wool flannel blazer with elbow patches, accessorized by a red bundle buggy:
Scarves makes sense when the early morning is still chill, the mid-day mild. (But monsieur et madame will wear them when it's full summer, too; welcome to Montréal).
We admired her meltingly soft, straw-coloured leather jacket, such a welcome sight after the blacks of winter, and worn beautifully, with a slash of poppy lipstick:
The market makes us hungry every time! You mention ice cream; my head is turned by a couple about to enjoy a dozen oysters:
We bought a few blood oranges each, and talked about what to make with these edible jewels. A blood orange tart with cardamom pastry cream would show them off.
Our first outing after a long winter; thanks for coming along!
