    Lately I have been slack and doing kinder drop/pick up in trackies and no makeup plus I have five months of regrowth *gasps. I think I'm rebelling because my sis told me I really need to get my hair done not in the nicest way. I cannot be bothered with mummy judgement on my appearance.
    Wear your wedges and be proud!

    Agreed. It's just an extension of the mummy wars. You dress up, you are trying too hard, you dress down, you're a lazy sloth. Seems there's no winning

    It depends on what's going on for me. DD now catches the bus, but when I do pick her up, or DS from pre school, you may see me in trackies and a hoodie and my nikes. You may see me in jeans and a tank top, or a nice set of trousers and nice top. I could care less what the others think of me. Luckily we have a wonderful public school where everyone dresses casual and there's isn't this stupid competition.

    Incidentally, in case anyone is curious, these are the offending shoes...

    Ohhh I've just clicked on the link to the shoes.

    If you turned up at our school gate you'd be mobbed for details on where you got them.

    Ignore the bishy ladies. Noone is like that unless they have their own issues - generally enormous insecurities.

    At home I wear trackies and uggs and always get changed for the school runs. Nothing fancy (like stilletos!) but always with a bit of flair and some make up (lipstick, bit of eyeliner, mascara and bronzer-takes 2 minutes).

    I say wear your damn wedges and feel good about it! Nothing feels as good as wearing a new pair of shoes

    So basically, everyone thinks the same way I do on this! Good to know I wasn't being naive, just a couple of bad eggs in the bunch!

    Anyone who wants details on the shoes, I'm happy to PM you! (don't know what the rules are about posting the site I bought them from.)
