... or fear of it not suiting/looking silly what would it be?

For me this or these

All the time. On the school run, to work, just all the time.

Leggings. My life would be 1000x easier if I could wear them.

I'd love to spend my days in dresses like this instead of saving them for nights out, but I don't have the attitude (or appropriate job) to get away with it.

I have a gorgeous faux fur coat I want to wear all the time and have only worn once (to a wedding) - I want to wear it insouciantly in the day but whenever I try it on I feel like an idiot.

Oh, Yoni you've just reminded me of my neighbour when I first arrived in London. She used to trip out of the house wafting perfume and insouciant sequins at 8am. She looked so cool.

I tried and looked like a baffled disco ball. envy

Might raise an eyebrow or two in Sainsbos.

Same as MrsBert I'd love to wear beautiful 50's dresses every day, which I know I suit but would look far too OTT at toddlers.

I've just bought this for a friends wedding and it makes me sad that I don't have the confidence to wear it just on a normal day for fear of people judging me for being a bit too try hard sad

Wear those dresses when the sun comes out! Just wear them! (I wear my VoH dresses in the summer - not always with an underskirt during the day). Wear with pumps, tie your hair up/pin it up, put some sunglasses on. Works for me smile

Wear it saymama i've got a spotty viv of holloway one I wear with the petticoat and heels for special occasions and without with flats and a denim jacket any old time - a good denim jacket tones down most posh frocks for school run wear status I find smile
