mom of two tiny boys and as such, I spend much of my week in jeans and t-shirts. There’s little else that’s appropriate for
playground outings, trips to the zoo and building block towers on the floor,
but that doesn’t mean I’m not going to try to look good doing it. I mean, in addition to being somewhat vain, my husband works from home, for goodness sake, so I try to keep greasy hair and pajamas-till-noon days to a minimum in the interest of keeping the luv alive. Enter fancy tees. Well-fitting denim is a must and this category of detailed, unusual tops will keep you comfortable and get you out of that t-shirt and jeans slump. Check out these great finds from Anthropologie’s
Tee in Black ($29.95, was $58.00)
this tee for almost every body type.
With its empire waist, it would probably even be cute on an early-stage
baby bump, though not a post-baby bump (why IS that!? It’s sooo unfair that your post-baby belly,

Tank in Pink ($29.95, was $48.00)
v-neckline on this adorable little number gives a similar effect as a scoop or
deep v-neck without showing off as much flesh—it elongates and slims, while
subtle layers will fall mercifully on mom-handles and back fat.
Tee in Ivory ($39.95, was $68.00)
at the lower third of this embellished v-neck will help the fabric of this
adorable tee fall away from your form where other tees cling. Again, a nice deep v-neck slims and draws
attention to the face.
& Gathered Tee in Sky ($48.00)
pleated details on this tee will hit moms with postpartum pouches in all the
right places and no one will be able to tell what’s fabric and what’s a bit of
