On grey, drizzly days like today there must be a general consensus amongst Parisians to throw on a touch of red.
Sit down in your reddest chair and prepare to have your spirits lifted. Isn't that what red does?
School kids are big proponents of the color red. I shot all these on the way home from the pool this morning. Fortunately my pool bag is red so I blend in...
The pool is near several grade schools. I pass lots of red riding hoods.
Red ridding hoodism starts around the same time as immersion into pastry shops = early indoctrination.
Red jeans work for boys...
Vichy red checks are an everyday occurrence in Paris. They do not just appear when it clouds over nor do they have any political significance for those concerned.
Which Pantone red is preferred in Paris I can't tell you. Just bring something RED when you visit.
Red tartes are pretty common and also not weather-related. But it doesn't hurt having a quick browse of a red desserts in patisserie vitrines when it's overcast. You won't be disappointed.
I would not suggest putting your red tarte inside your red satchel even if they do match...
Remember I told you to pick up the daily free news at the Metro? Today's 20 Minutes announced that since Monday Café de la Paix is having a special petit dejeuner prix choc promotion for charity. Just 5 euros for a hot drink, croissant + OJ until 7 June. The Café de la Paix will match it in a donation. Look for those red news stands.
Have a cheery RED day PBers!!
