I want to ride my bicycle.

Quite simply, I love Paul Newman, bicycles, shirts and repeated patterns and quite cleverly, I have brought them all together in one post. 
You may have noticed I am partial to a print, be it bugs or old fashioned swimmers and so for me, to come across this wonderful shirt from Paul Smith left me truly captivated. I felt it my duty to share it with you and hopefully like me, allow for it to conjure up thoughts of riding along on a beautiful turquoise town bike with a fresh baguette and sweet smelling flowers cradled in the bike's woven basket.

In other news, does anybody else relish discovering new words? I'm always trying to incorporate alternatives into my vocabulary and today I came across a few which I delightfully welcomed and want to share. 
Amaranthine (adj.) undying, immortal; eternally beautiful
Recherché (adj.) carefully chosen, rare, or exotic
 Aesthete (adj.) someone with deep sensitivity to the beauty of art or nature
Charming, aren't they?
