I've been a sahm for 2 1/2 yrs now and in all that time I only ever wear jeggins/jeans with jumper/ t shirt in summer. I find I can dress them up with boots or down with converse.

But im at that point where I feel really scruffy living in them all the time. I work 2 days a week from home aswell so I have no reason to get dressed up at all in office clothes as much as i'd like, What else is there to wear.

I dont really do dresses as cant stand my tummy/bum in them. Dont suit leggings as I have to wear a long jumper with them again to cover my tummy. Im a sz 14, any ideas?

I work part time, so do dress smarter then, but I I'm the same and tend to wear jeans every day otherwise! I hate leggings (other than under skirts/dresses when I wear them instead of thick black tights) as they do nothing for my stomach! Jeans seem to hold it all in a bit!

I do wear different jewellery and scarves though to jazz it all up a bit!

I work part time from home (mornings), and I'm with the little monsters the rest of the time. I have 2 skinny jeans (1 black, 1 blue), 1 navy trousers and one black trousers. I have a range of jumpers and tops that go over any of them. I find the trousers definitely make me "feel" more dressed up than jeans do. I have one wrap skirt (plus tops above) and a knee length knitted dress that I wear with opaques and all of the above go with one of my three pairs of boots! I got a fantastic knee length leather skirt for Christmas and I need to find a way to make that an every day thing. Do you ever wear skirts? I find wrap styles are quite forgiving.

I really wish I could find a way to make sequined mini dress work for doing the washing up or playing with Lego...

I wear quite a lot of skirts with boots in the winter (therefore I am just in a different rut from you!)

I like stretchy jersery skirts and skater style ones, as well as a few knee length full skirts. All suit jumpers/long sleeved tops/ blouses and layers etc and the stretchy ones also look good with fitted check shirts.

In the summer I quite like a long skirt.

I think J Crew do them, they are always great for styling ideas

I am exactly the same op. I live in jeggings and have started to feel scruffy. I also get cold so find it easier to dress in the summer.
