What the ALMOST teenager wore Wednesday

Not too many people are aware of this:  a commonly overlooked Mom duty is stylist.   This is especially hard when you live on a farm.  The favorite everyday gunky tees and hole-y work pants must be separated from the fit-for-public wear.  Not to put all the emphasis on appearance, but they must learn.  You have to find items they will like and help them divine their own sense of style.  Then you have to teach them to apply that style on a regular basis.   No short order. (But what mom duty is?)

I felt a bit of hard work paying off when the ALMOST teenager, Stringbain, put this simple doozy together:

Shirt: Consignment
Jeans: Gap kids
Bracelet: VBS
Sunglasses: little shop in Savannah, GA
Flip flops: Walmart

I think he was channeling inner Beatle...and is on his way to realizing his the rock-star within!
