Linking up all over the place today. It's Inspiration Monday with two birds and it's also day one of Megan Mae and Keely's 2nd Annual Super Stripes challenge!
Here is the pick for this week's Inspiration Monday - the lovely Olivia Wilde. I think she's pretty, but the Pants Monkey thinks her face is too "manish" which I think is kind of funny.
I didn't have a cool maxi dress or leather jacket like hers but I do have this awesome shirt that was another hand-me-down from "Rich Cousin" and it kind of made me think of this picture. It's technically not striped, but I think it's close enough for jazz. And there are also stripes on my shoes! My stripes will get better as the week goes on, though it would be a little easier if it was cooler outside. I have a lot of striped winter clothing!
So want to watch a bizarre and depressing movie? Rent the movie Melancholia. The name pretty much says it all. It was recommended to us because we like movies that are "arty" and this one is definitely "arty" and is very well done but, spoiler alert, it does not have a happy ending at all. And we were already having kind of a downer weekend and chose to watch it last night - not the smartest thing we've ever done. Thank goodness we had a few episodes of Up All Night to catch up on afterward.
The sun is out now, but it wasn't yet when I was taking my pictures and was kind of cloudy and yuck so the melancholy/blahness from the weekend is kind of carrying over to today. But it's only Monday, doesn't mean the whole week will be like this. Can only go up right?
