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?

grin - I was curious about that !

grin I love reading about 'school run dresses' - for me it's like watching a very escapist tv series where everyone looks lovely all the time.

All this talk of summer dresses is making me sweat

<hides wobbly doughy flesh>

Won't any old sun dress do, really? Obv not one that show bum and too much clea-ver-age.

My SIL generally drops her DD off at school in pj bottoms, puts a posh top over the top of it, prays she has no reason to get out of the car.

tbh my office is full of slobs has a casual dress code so I wear them to work in the summer, but cannot flash bra so wide straps are important.

lol thread title... I konw what you mean, TT. I was thinking that around here there are 2 types... those trying to look smart and those sneering at those who overdo it when they try to look smart.

I am well out of all that, though, being at the bottom of the social pecking order as the perenially scruffy, of course.

Er, Cod, is there a piccie of you in a bikini somewhere? Coz you won't find one of me over the age of 10 (& I have a good figure, bikinis & sunbathing just not my style).

but we had about 4 scorchio days last year

they don't warrant a whole new wardrobe

Cod you make it sound like it's sunny all the time. It's not round ours. it's never ever sunny.

Agree with dresses for large of nork are a nightmare. (36f) Anything without shape makes me look preggers, as it hangs off my boobs.

Cappuccino Tue 22-Apr-08 13:34:11

I explained to DH that a pair of my flipflops were "school run flipflops" and he spluttered "you have a pair of flipflops just for the school run?"


he just doesn't get it

You mean you don't all go to the hairdresser at 2.45pm every afternoon?

YOu know what I am getting desperate house wife images in my head - loungers, sunglasses, hats and magazines.

My kids would have me off the lilo, in the water nad looking bedraggled in no time - pah
