There are a handful of t-shirts that have been the backbone of my daily mom-uniform the last 6 months or so. I wear them to school drop-off, I wear them to the park. I find myself wearing them with high heels and pretty skirts on date night, or under suits when I want to look professional, but still like myself. Most of these tees have been slept in a night or two (or ten). Nights when I'm so exhausted that I fall asleep putting the kids down…and then (cringe) Iweartheteeallthenextday. #momconfessions These tees have been washed and dried a countless number of times, and they are all still hanging in there. And to make this whole thing rurrl easy, my daily everytees are either from J.Crew (and currently 30% off) or Sincerely Jules.
If you haven't heard of Sincerely Jules, you're in for a treat. A TREAT I SAY! Jules is a fashion blogger who started designing a line of seriously cool tees and sweatshirts. I love the quirky, interesting prints, the soft, drapey fabric, and the slightly boyish cut. These tees wash and dry really well (and I'm forever using stain stick on mine because, duh, white). But best of all? Jules is a total sweetheart.
(For size references, I'm wearing an XS in the top pic.)
One word of caution on the popsickle tee: my kids take one look and are all, "Whoa, cool popsicle! What a good idea, Mum! Can we have ones like THAT?" and then they DO NOT WANT the healthy homemade yogurt pops no mo'.
J.Crew's graphic tees are thin, perfectly drapey, and soft (even the linen). I wash and dry mine, but the linen tee will shorten in the dryer. I prefer my t-shirts slightly oversized, so I size up to a medium in J.Crew tees, then can wash and dry without fear. Fearless washing, just how I like it. J.Crew is also having a sale – most tees are currently 30% off with code HISUMMER.
Speaking of…Hi, Summer! We're so very glad to see you.
