Neutrals, neutrals, neutrals. The sun is shining, the temperatures are crisp and everyone is yearning for spring. However, neutrals prevail as they usually do 12 months of the year in one color family or another.

I wish I had snapped more examples for you. I'll try to do better next week. 

Today is My-Reason-For-Living-In-France's birthday so I am a tad preoccupied and in the throes of figuring out how we can celebrate without celebrating. He's not big on birthday parties. Every time I say, "Happy birthday" to him, he says, "Happy birthday" to me. Heaven knows I don't need two of them. 

What I'm Wearing Today:

1.) Gray flannel trousers.

2.) Charcoal gray silk short-sleeve T-shirt.

3.) Charcoal cashmere cardigan, i.e. a twin-set.

4.) Black and gray -- one side black, one side gray -- cashmere scarf.

5.) Faux suede Chanel ballerinas in gray and black.

6.) Amethyst and turquoise earrings.

**My wear-with-everything-scarf (above) is three-years-old. I must have torn off the label. I bought it in Babette's boutique, you see the inside in the third picture. 

A demain.

Have a great weekend, Tish! I'm sure you'll find a lovely and appropriate birthday celebration for YRFLIF.

My goodness, today is also Pseu's "day of days" as well. Quelle coincidence! I wish your fella all the best on this frabjous day. He's very funny about saying "happy birthday" back to you. And you not needing more of them is so funny, too. What a pair you make!

Love that scarf. Again.

I'm a neutrals girl myself but my mantra for spring is to add a little color!! Love the scarf!

Winetex said...

Love the scarf but when I see these street photos I think "these women really need a spot of color in their lives". Of course it is the end of a long winter and they are probably tired of winter clothes just like the rest of us. :)

Thank you for another fabulous view of real life French ladies! They all look fabulous, as usual.
