    The last few days i've done the kinder drop off and pick up in my tracksuit pants (*runs and hides in shame).....though i figure at almost 40wks i have some legitimate excuse for looking like a bogan amongst the pin up Mamas! This morning, i didn't even wash my hair, oh the shame

    But really, as long as you're comfortable, and your children arrive and leave in safety, why should it matter what you wear?

    I must admit that I have a look at what I'm wearing before I do school pick up normally to see if I look respectable..
    In saying that though today I wore tracksuit pants and a jumper with runners

    I think everyone has a different idea of what's expected, our school has quite a high number of people that wear what I would class as unsuitable clothing (revealing clothes with boobs and bum cracks on show, slippers, even pjs sometimes) and some that are always dressed very nicely with full make up and hair styling.

    I do notice what they wear and I do think "wow she looks nice today" or "gee she must have had a rough night last night" but it doesn't change my opinion of them, I am still always polite and speak to or acknowledge those that do the same to me.

    I think maybe those mums are immature and still think they're in high school?? And as a pp said jealous as well?

    I'm sure the back gate mums get dressed up to pick up their kids, so often it's like a facsimile parade of shellac nails, freshly dressed hair and make up.

    There's several distinct style of mums at our school;

    The young mums with kids in pushers get there early so their little kids can play on the equipment. They occupy the playground.

    The front gate mums who are often dressed smart casual and stand in gaggles so as to exclude any new mums.

    The back gate mums in dressed to kill stlyes.

    The mums who hide other cars so as to avoid conversations.

    The grannies at front and back gate who can't wait to see their gc's

    And the absent parents - this is the group I fit in - their kids are often first at school being dropped off at OSHCare and last to be collected - these parents are normally in their work clothes looking haggard and tired.

    Dont bag out the mums who are 'dressed up' .....you have no idea if they have done it purposely or that is just how they feel they want to look when in public.

    Dont bag out the mums who are 'dressed down' .....you have no idea if they have had a rough night/morning/day/week etc.

    Don't listen to this rubbish from women who have nothing better to do than judge what other people wear at the school gate.

    ETA: I've been wearing a hat with ears for the morning school run. I couldn't give a toss what people thought of it.

    The only Mum that grabs the looks is one at our school who wears highly visble g string under her tights and a crop top (like the ones you wear to the gym) ONLY because it's winter and freaking FREEZING! Oh and the giggles the kids give her for being able to see her "bum crack" through her tights

    Im a jeans and tshirt and converse/docs Mum

    Pfft

    Some days i dress really casual and other days i am a bit more done up - depends on the day really. The other mums are a mix of different types of clothing - who cares really so long as you are dressed.

    I'd imagine some of the mums who are 'done up' might be on their way somewhere. I really doubt that many/any mums get super dressed up to drop the kids off, unless there's a few DILFs around.
