Clothes with two boys!

I was at the beach last week with my 3 year old crabbing. I was wearing a maxi dress. This was stupid however it was all I packed.
My husband said that with two boys I need to rethink my wardrobe of dresses. I like a nice dress but see my future as fleeces and joules tops.
Mystic people can you predict a different path or is my husband right?

I have boys and refuse to believe I will end up in jeans and fleeces.
I wear dresses and skirts all the time and although I probably would of worn leggings or roll up chinos to go crabbing. I am not changing my wardrobe for my babies smile
* I do wear less clothes that show that ever so glamourous snot covered shoulder.

* I do own a couple of Joules tops but did pre baby for just pottering about the house blush

I have 3 ds and am well known for my funky/quirky wardrobe style ......even if I do wear jeans you can funk them up so its not 'mumsy'.

Sorry, please explain to me why you can't wear dresses with two boys? confused

But you could carry on in your dresses if you had 2 girls hmm

I wear dresses all the time - jersey wrap overs. Very comfy.

Rubbish! I have 3 boys and almost always wear skirts/ dresses. I have no idea what your dh is banging on about

I have two boys and wear skirts and dresses a lot. However, to go crabbing I wouldn't have worn a maxi dress - unless it was a very simple jersey/cotton style and even then...... TBH, if you are taking little ones to the beach, irrespective of gender, then there are more practical outfits that you could have packed.

I only wear a fleece when skiing or walking my dog in winter. Even then, I wear a fitted style rather than mumsy baggy style. I only own one piece of Joules clothing and that's a cotton skirt - so no more or less practical than any other brand smile

Your DH is talking cack.

I realise that wearing a maxi dress to go crabbing was a bit stupid but the day didn't start out that way, we just ended up at the beach.
I'm wearing a dress today but a shorter one.
I think my husband was trying to get at that my clothes need to be a bit more practical as we have two boys.
I don't know if having girls would make any difference. I think he thinks that boys are more active.
I think he thinks that fleeces are the order of the day!
He approved the fact that I bought some treggings.
