burlap sack

I’ll be honest.  I wasn’t planning on taking photos of myself (hence the day-old hair and lack of makeup).  But I stumbled upon these wood pallets in our backyard (husband, did you put them there?) and thought they’d be a great background for some photos of Ricki.

Ricki had other ideas.

Such as peeing on the pallets instead of modeling for the camera.

So I gave up, let him explore and gathered proof that my poncho might be the most comfortable thing I own.  It’s like wearing pajamas.  In public.


[h&m poncho, express jeans, enzo angiolini boots]


I can throw it on over a crappy tee-shirt and no one is wiser.


Contrary to this photo, I do not have a tail.

There’s actually a belt attached.  But I kind of feel like Robin Hood when I tie it.  So I leave it loosely knotted in the back.

So it looks like I have a tail.

And I look like a burlap sack.

But a comfortable burlap sack.
