Sticks and Dirt

You know how sometimes it’s the simplest things that blow your mind?  I’ve pinned a couple of outfits with white shorts and a black and white striped top, and had that *DUHHH* moment with them.  The looks were so clean and simple that I never would have thought of them myself.  I borrowed that same principle here using a blue and white striped top instead–one that has been on hiatus for about a year.  Pretty glad to pull it back into the mix!  
The first time I wore this was to go blueberry picking with a rambunctious 15 month old.  I will never get out of my head the vision of him continually reaching for fallen blueberries that were on the ground and shoving them into his mouth–along with a fistful of dirt and sticks (STICKS!!!) each time.  (STICKS!!!  IN HIS DIGESTIVE SYSTEM!!!)  Dang, those blueberries must have been good if he was willing to eat sticks and dirt with them.  Or maybe sticks taste better than we think?  And yes, I was holding him as he rubbed his dirty little shoes all over my white shorts.  But it was not a problem because the material is durable and the dirt came right off.  Dirt I’m not scared of…sauces and marker stains might be a different story, in which case I’m not scared of that coming from a child but more from myself.  (True story.)
