If you’re a regular little t reader, you will know that I have been doing the Day Zero Project (working my way through a list of 101 things to complete in 1001 days). You may have noticed that Day Zero has come and gone. I was supposed to be all done by October 3rd. 1001 days seems like a long time, until those days start ticking away. When I realised my time was nearly up, I thought it would be better to just keep going. I’m a little over half way there and I’m not giving up yet, even if it ends up taking me 2002 days.
Anyone else doing this? How is it going?

If there was a theme to this month’s ‘Best of…’ post, it would be ‘How to wear your boyfriend’s clothes and look completely adorable’.
Or your Dad’s, Brother’s, Grandad’s… whatever. Make it work.

You have to have a certain attitude when you’re wearing your Grandaddy’s clothes. Betty’s got it down. I’d aim for just shy of smug.

Interesting fact: this post starts and ends with two of my favourite style pictures ever. Of all time. So perfect.

This video makes my heart sing.
Once, after a couple of sleeping pills knocked me out on a long flight, I awoke to find myself resting on the rigid, bony shoulder of one of my fellow passengers: a young boy (no more than twelve years’ old). A small drool patch was beginning to form on his t-shirt. I remember thinking, underneath my mortification, how sweet it was that he didn’t shrug me off. He let me sleep… for God knows how long. Now, whenever I hear people complain about ‘kids nowadays’, I like to remember that one.

Did you read Diana’s post last week about how to create the perfect ‘dressed up-dressed down’ look using a staple grey t-shirt? I loved the idea since I’m always conscious about not looking like I spent the whole afternoon getting ready (…even when I did).
Inspired, I just bought this Topshop one and it seems to go with every single other item in my wardrobe.

Since incorrect moonwalking is a global issue.
I love that one man cared enough to make the gifs. You can hear the passsion in his voice from the first line: “This is literally the exact opposite of the moonwalk. Stop doing it.”
Anyway, it’s time to get practising so we can all look this cool.

Noun: The realization that each random passer-by is living a life as vivid and complex as your own - populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries, and inherited craziness - an epic story that continues invisibly around you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you’ll never know existed, in which you might appear only once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background, as a blur of traffic passing on the highway, as a lighted window at dusk.
