Robes à smocks

Smock dresses galore at the market on Saturday. We had a lovely, warm spring week with temperatures right up to 25° C (77°F) on Friday and then a brutal drop to 11° (52°F) on Saturday with a cold wind. These little dresses suddenly looked strange in the cold and rain... There is a courtyard on Artsy Versailles.

Il a fait beau et très chaud la semaine dernière, jusqu'à 25° vendredi. Samedi la chute fut brutale, plus que 11° avec un vent bien frisquet de telle sorte que ces petites robes étaient presque étranges ! Il y a une cour sur Artsy Versailles.

Bright and pretty colors for a spring frock.

I would love at least a dozen of the dresses for my granddaughter! She loves dresses and being feminine! The temperature has been up and down almost everywhere I visit blogs!

Enjoyed the Artsy Versailles courtyard!

Beautiful little dresses, and what bright colours! Great for a photo.
We had a blizzard here this morning, but it seems to have stopped. There's more snow in the forecast, however.
Last week we had some lovely warm days!

Le liberty et les smocks reviennent à la mode! pourquoi, Ô pourquoi, n'ai-je pas gardé mes fringues depuis les années 70?... :o)

Cela me rappelle...je dois acheter une robe de soirée, pour le dîner de graduation de Marina ( école secondaire + le bac).
Difficile et plus je voudrais perdre quelques kilos :( donc, la robe noir bien sûr.
Mais, j'adore les robes fleuries.

The range of colors and patterns make for a lot of visual interest.

ah, but then perhaps the following day was perfect for darling little girls in their spring frocks.

A nice assortment of colors...

Mais j'adore les couleurs vibrants ! Très sympa comme photo de printemps. :)

Je vais à Berlin la semaine prochaine et j’ai hâte de faire les marchés. Les marchés ici sont sympas, mais pas comparable a ceux d’Europe.

They are so lovely and colourful! Spring must appreciate them:)

We've been having really weird weather, too! Can't make up its mind about spring. Love seeing the bright colors though :D

The colors are really captivating.

After I was hacked I had to give up my old user name and the blogs that went with it. My Birds Blog was among the give-ups.

So this is the new birds blog and I hope you can come visit. Birds Birds Birds and Birds

Oh they look so pretty all in a row like that, how would you be able to choose , I love how the yellow one is a vibrant splash in the sea of pastel pink and blue.. It never ceases to amaze me how the weather can change so dramatically from one day to the next, it happens here also, keeps us guessing oui!

The colours are so cheerful. ")

Lowell said...

They are colorful for sure, but mainly for "little" girls, right? Sorry about the change in weather. I hate that, especially in the spring, just when you come to enjoy the warmth once again.

Loree said...

How cute. I love summer dresses.

Andrew said...

A lovely girly moment... a beautiful image.

Dina said...

The cheerful spring colors remind me that Easter is coming.
