Readers, we've been receiving more and more emails from moms about to go back to work. While we've been meaning to do a back-to-work article for quite some time, we've been putting it off. However, we received this lovely email from reader Cathy a few weeks ago:
I'm currently on the lookout for a fabulous denim shirt. While I do love J.Crew's (pictured above), I'm still coveting the denim shirt I borrowed from my sister this summer. It was Miley Cyrus for Walmart...and under $25. Wow.
While I don't typically consider silky little tops mom-friendly, this one from Old Navy is both affordable and machine washable. I own this shirt and have been wearing the heck out of it. (Why YES. I am wearing it with my tired old maternity cut-offs that you are sick of. Yes, I am.) Old Navy and LOFT are both good sources for pretty, flowy, patterned blouses that you can still throw into the washing machine.
