calling all sahm's, what do you wear in day? bored of jeans
hiya, just wondering as am now on mat leave so have been living in jeans and crappy tshirt tops but am fed up. really miss wearing smart work clothes but obviously cant wear for just doing nursery pick ups and supermarket shopping etc! what do u wear thats in between? am stumped and tired of looking boring.
also dont want to spend too much as still have some weight to shift.
Not a SAHM but do work from home at the moment so alternate my jeans with skinny cargo trousers like this (which are far more comfy than they look!!) or rolled up chinos (got mine from Next but they are selling them everywhere atm). In winter I do like leggings and longer knits teamed with boots
Jeans, converse, t shirts, cute polo shirts and casual shirts from Topshop or Next (bought pre-loved on eBay as I'm on mat pay). I really miss dressing up for work too, can't wait to get my lovely work wardrobe on again!
Gillybobs and yummytummy I would like to truly thnak you both, I opened this thread with interest and discovered the trousers Gilly had mentioned, took a risk, ordered them, they arrived today and I bloody love them, will be going back to order some more, they don't ride down on my arse and are a lovely fit truly thank you, thank you, thank you! Best £30 I spent as I bought a t-shirt too
To' Sho' have some nice ones (have only looked on first page though). Also Uniqlo I recently got a lovely print dress from what I think was a special range. Can't remember what it was called but think they do several 'special' mini-collections a year, collaborating with various designers etc, so it's worth keeping an eye on.
So all great suggestions for those of us with nice/tanned legs and those who suit skinnies.. what about everyone else?! Any suggestions for non-jeans but not skinny (not leggings either), let's say, like those cargo pants but wider?
Watching with interest... I have what can be politely termed as "rugby players legs" or fat and stumpy and while my bum isn't too huge, trousers that fit one area don't fit t'other ... and I'm only 5ft 1"
