Porch Potato

It's still kind of chilly so this little boys' sweatshirt has been my best friend the past few days. It is ludicrously soft marbled gray cotton, a fabric of which my closet cannot seem to get enough. I'm still being shamefully lazy on vacation in Maine, taking walks, baking chocolate chip cookies, watching Christopher kayak from the relative warmth of the shore, and enjoying a big stack of reading material (currently I'm working on Kureishi's The Buddha of Suburbia). I think I've become a porch potato...one step up from a couch potato, hopefully.

a porch potato sounds like the perfect occupation to me right now

A porch potato is definitely a step up from a couch potato. In fact, I'd say you are also woefully close to being a beach bum, since you are right there. Which is perfectly acceptable. In fact, I am extremely jealous, both of the fact that you are reading all you want while at the shore and of that sweatshirt, which looks delightful.

Heehee, being a porch potato sounds pretty darned good though. I'm actually going kayaking with a friend this evening, I'm pretty excited, but it's scorching hot here so the watery reprieve will be glorious. I hope the heat we've got up here in Ottawa comes down to you soon! (if you want it anyway!)

fresh air makes it sooo much better than a couch potato.

That skirt is super cute, and looks just perfect paired with that sweatshirt. Perfect pairing of casual and dressier denim.

I *love* the framing of this photo -- yellow siding, red hanging buoy, gray outfit, with a peek of porch? Perfection.

If you don't mind me asking, Where did you find The Buddha of Surburbia? I've been wanting to read for a very long time. Every time I searched for it, it's been out of print.

At least you are outside enjoying the sunshine, even if you are being a little lazy. But, that is what vacation is for right?

Sara said...

No matter how many times you wear this skirt, I never tire of it. And I kind of love the fact that your sweatshirt is a little boys' sweatshirt.
