The proof is in the tiny streets in the town near our village: Summer has officially arrived and everyone is dressing accordingly. From shorts and cropped pants to dresses and the of-the-moment combination (jumpsuit), all the best of the season are on display.
Almost everyone was wearing some interpretation of a sandal and toenail colors varied from the red, reds I saw last week in Paris to the gray one French writer was quoted as saying is the sublime compliment to bronzé skin. Tough judgement call I would say.
Note the details -- or absence thereof, scarfs as belts, no fussy jewelry, all toenails polished, no fingernails with color, the absolute minimum makeup and as always, easy, breezy hair.
Today I'm off to Paris to see what is on the streets there.
As you may know markdown dates are legislated by the government and coincidentally this is the first day of the sales. So while I'm there. . .
