Dressing for the playground is hard. One minute your kid is happily on the swings, the next they’re racing down the slide—backward. Add to that the fact that it’s basically a personality test for making new mom friends. (Hey, that small talk by the faux suspension bridge has gotta lead somewhere, right?)
Bottom line: You want to be comfortable, but also semi-put-together (i.e. like you’re dressed to go down the slide with your 2-year-old, but also like you’ve showered and put at least some thought into your outfit so your kid isn’t dressed for Instagram while you look like a scrub).
Enter the tissue cotton white button-down from Grayson. Is it too bold to say that I found the perfect playground shirt? Here’s why I love it:
1. It pairs easily with jeans and flats. Most of the time, I have approximately 1.5 minutes to dress myself before we’re out the door. (When my toddler is ready to go outside, he’s ready—literally knocking at the door.) This white shirt feels casual and relaxed, but stylish—and with jeans and a pair of flats (say, this pair from Birdies), it’s low-effort enough to look like I tried...but didn’t try.
