Monday Things

I’m heading back to New York tomorrow, which means blogging activities will resume at their normal pace tomorrow afternoon. Here are just a few things in the meantime.

1. I saw The Young Victoria last night and it was amazing. Even though there’s no clear plot structure, the movie is gorgeous and very well acted. It also has some of my favorite British period actors (ex. Miranda Richardson as Duchess of Kent, Jim Broadbent as King William, Harriet Walter as Queen Adelaide, and Michael Maloney as Sir Robert Peel).

2. I love happy PostSecrets. This one was posted yesterday and might be my all-time favorite.

3. Selectism, as always, read my mind and posted this amazing striped jumper. I don’t care if it’s supposed to be for boys. This girl wants one.

When I get back I promise to blog about all the bread I baked this weekend and my photogenic cat and grilled cheese.

First of all, I would like to apologize for moaning about the weather yesterday because today is much worse. Thank you, weather gods, for putting everything in perspective by sending us a monsoon. Now please bugger off and bring me happy, sunny spring weather instead of attempting to drown me in the subway.

Secondly, and more importantly, I have been thinking about striped shirts a lot lately. I have been seeing them around the internet as part of a sailor thing or as part of a French thing.

Nobody rocked the horizontal stripes like Picasso, pictured above, and it is my wish to wear them with the same careless, polished ease that he did.

Examples of striped shirts I like after the jump.
