Reader Style: Jai’s Genius Way to Make a Guy’s Shirt Fit

Mamas!  One of my new sisters* sent me outfit pics as a little "thinking-of-you-today" kind of thing.  Jai grabbed one of her boyfriend's shirts and GENIUS RESULTED.

(She's my sister-in-law via my own sister's marriage – make sense?)



I love how this technique shows off a waist and a great rack (and Sister's got both).

Jai wore this outfit bartending….which isn't all that different from mom duty, you know?  Wiping up spills, dealing with unreasonable, hard-to-understand demands from people who can barely walk…I mean it's practically the same thing, right?  Except, uh…she gets paid in real money.  Versus kisses.  

BTW – I'm renaming this feature "Reader Style" instead of "Mom Street Style".  While the focus of this blog won't change, I don't want to make my, uh, three readers who aren't moms feel left out.  And cute, practical outfit inspiration can come from anyone – not just moms.  

IknowIknow.  Nobody cares.  Moving on.

Jai, you look awesome.  Thanks for the pics and inspiration, Babe.

    Tell Jai that she’s my postpartum hero! Just the other day I was digging through my (and my husband’s) closet wishing there was some magic way to make anything fit my 6 week postpartum body. I am so trying this for my sons 2nd birthday party this weekend (which just so happens to be construction themed — how perfect is plaid for that!?). I even have those exact boots to pair with it. Thanks Jai!

    So cute! Love the way it cinches the waist and shows off the knockers. I’m stealing one of my husband’s shirts ASAP to try this!

    As a non-mom, I appreciate the name change!
    I am so trying this shirt trick soon with one of my dad’s old flannel shirts.
