I’m not sure about you, but by the time I get both kids ready to go and out the door, I am usually in a sweat and forget my jacket. That’s not that bad, except sometimes I’m in a short sleeve shirt and then freezing in a few minutes. Oops! I needed something that would work for those moments I’m in and out of stores, dragging two kids with me, and sweating from toting them around.
Let’s also talk about how I wear leggings 99% of the time, so when I do have a jacket on, it’s awkward because my shirt is poking out under it. Basically, jackets are just nonsense and hard to work with. Yes, they are needed when you’re outside to stay warm, but they can also be a nuseunce when shopping! You need one for getting to the store, but then you swear in the store, and then need to take it off and carry it around. It’s just a lot of work!
So basically, I need shirts that will keep me warm to keep my into the store, but will also not make me super hot when in the store. Easy criteria, right? ha I worked with Pinkblush in the past, and I was excited to work with them again. I loved (and recommend them to all my pregnant friends!) them when I was pregnant for cute maternity clothes, and love that they have a non-pregnant selection, too! I went back and forth over what to order for months. Honestly, I just couldn’t decide because there were too many great options and I couldn’t pull the trigger, ha! When I found this terry cloth shirt that would be perfect with leggings and slip on shoes, I decided to go for it, and I’m glad I did!
This shirt is long enough for leggings, and can be worn a few ways. I’ve worn it around the house just hanging out with the kids, getting up and down off the ground, chasing kids, doing laundry. I’ve also worn it running errands paired with a scarf. It really has been perfect to keep me warm without a coat wearing me down. I love wearing it with a blanket scarf (I just did on New Years Day actually!), and have tied it in a knot to make it look a little cuter.
I will note that I think it runs big. I’ve ordered a few things and do find I should size down with them. For reference, I’m wearing a small and it fits totally comfortably, and loose throughout which is what I like when I’m lounging around. You can find the shirt here and it retails for $36.
Perfect jack of all trades shirt, which makes it perfect for moms
