So no flared jeans, no yoga pants, no sweats... what exactly is "approriate" for a mom to wear S/O**Edit to clarify a few things..

Posted by   + Show Post

**EDIT  _ok just to be clear...I am not saying that people should wear sweats or yoga pants everywhere. I think because I mentioned those in the title people focused on those to articles of clothing.

I think there is a time and a place for everything. I wouldn't suggest sweats on girls night out or a date or a job interview or Parent/Teacher conference. But to run to the grocery store...sure.

I am not saying the any of the items in the title should be part of the "mom" uniform

Really what I am trying to say is that a mom should wear what she is comfortable in. I am not saying she shouldn't take care of herself. she should. Comfortable doesn't have to equal sloppy.

And on the same note there is nothing at all with dressing nice. If you can rock dress pants or dresses or skirts everyday go for it! My lifestyle is one in which I don't feel that is appropriate attire for my activities. I wear jeans and nice shirts (not t-shirts normally), I tend to show a little cleavage. I think I look approriate for my age and station..and I don't think I am misrepresenting my family.

Lastly not everyone follows trends...Lord knows I have a little to much butt for skinny jeans..and I honestly don't care for how they look on me. Trends are nice for those who follow but not following trends doesn't mean you don't care how you look.

So I hope that cleared some things up. Oh and I don't believe PJs should be worn out of the house on a regular basis. I can understand if you have to run out real quick and if the PJs could maybe pass for not PJS. But as a rule that is inside wear IMO 

Carry on :-)


 Seriously...There is post saying flared jeans are out....people say you shouldn't wear yoga pants out of the house.

There is a post about what shouldn't be I want to know what exactly should a mom wear?

I honestly don't care what a mom wears as long as she doesn't look a hot mess on a regular basis cause that is teaching bad habits to you kids.

I am just amazed how many women feel they know what another woman should wear..


OK so I had to go to class and then go mommy so I am just really getting back to this post...I did not think there would be so much animosity. embarrassed

Ladies please calm the end this is all just opinion and we are just strangers on the internet. Please don't get into an huge online fight over PJs or Dress Pants.....I mean really we will probably never see each other in real life....and if we did would we really talk to each other the way we are now over how we were dressed?? its no biggie ladies..chill

This is all a bunchof garbage.  Dress up is for going out on the town.  Fancier for big parties.  I live in Florida and I live in shorts (not short short ones) and a shirt and burkenstocks.  if it is chilly I wear longer pans and same type of shirts.  I rarely wear button up shirts.  I don't wear yoga pants or too tight pants.  But younger people can.  There is a lot of area.  men are the ones who usually dress grubby or like trash.  But even the movie stars seem to do that. They are out with a woman in heels and earrings and a fancy dress and the guy is in grubbies even on the street.  Doesn't make sense and I'd not be interested in the grub if I were dressed up.

They all look fine for most things they do.  Might be a fancy dinner and dress up a bit.  But that looks like day to day clothing to me.

I wear whatever the fuck I want. Screw all those rules! I have enough things to worry about without concerning myself with whether or not someone down the street thinks I am not dressed "right". Screw em all with unpolished broom handles and let them pluck that out of their asses, since the stick thats shoved up there obviously cannot be removed.
