Do you actually change clothes to drop off/pick up at school?
Who are you trying to impress?
Do you have nothing more important to think about?

BBBB - just had a look at those - which fabric did you go for? I liked the brown print one but wasn't sure what it's like in real life!

Where do you stand vis-a-vis mooncups? grin.

My Boden polo shirt-type dress arrived yesterday. Bargainous at £16, and perfect school run material IMO. It is definitely my new "throw on over a swimsuit on holiday" dress, in any case smile.

Big fat sigh...cod dreamed up the phrase. I am getting tired of explaining....
I used the phrase in a thread title as I knew cod would laugh, when I saw a dress i wanted and thought''OMG, this is what cod means by a school-run dress!)

I just meant I had found a nice summer dress.

This will teach me to try and play in the style threads. I'll stick to vegetables, mooncups and lentil-weaving. I know my place.

yy - I think so. I think it's purely a MN term - haven't seen it anywhere else.

good lord
if true then her power runs deep and mysterious

I think Cod dreamed it up, stuffitgrin. Not sure she's in marketing though...

stuffitllama Thu 24-Apr-08 13:46:12

somebody in marketing dreamed this up
if you buy a dress with the phrase "school run dress" in your head I put it to you that you are a slave to marketing and deep background consumer manipulation

But at least there is a purpose Bozza grin

Ah you laugh tooticky but I do indeed have "hangthewashingoutflipflops" they are kept in a cupboard in the utility especially. Although they have been known to multi-task to "waterthepotsflipflops". I am just on the cusp of swapping from wellies to flipflops for these purposes. grin wink

Nothing wrong with wearing dresses, just struggling with the idea of a dedicated "school run dress".

bozza Wed 23-Apr-08 12:20:45

Don't get what is wrong with wearing a dress for doing the school run or the shopping or the cleaning TBH. And I think jeans are overworn in this country especially in summer. << bozza studiously avoids glancing at her lower half - I've only got them on because DD went over her handlebars yesterday, otherwise I would be at work>.

that's my 10 minutes toot don't knock it

TooTicky Tue 22-Apr-08 19:08:52

It is a school run when you're late though.

Fullmoonfiend Tue 22-Apr-08 18:56:35

dear ogds, only on MN could people get sniffy about whether one ''does the school run'' or whether one opts to ''get the kids from school''.
We're not judging all you skankers who go out in public in bikini tops - or worse. So leave us nice summer dress wearers to discuss our highly important mission. wink

Frankly I struggle to see the point in being female unless you can wear dresses at least 57% of the time.

Otherwise you may as well just grow a beard and be done with it.

For some reason, I have never 'done' bikinis, or swimwear in general actually.

Flamesparrow Tue 22-Apr-08 18:39:30

I didn't appreciate my youthful bod at the time, I am just enjoying the one I have

Puffling, I do, I do!
