PJ's you can take your kid to school in



I'm sure you've heard the recent debate about parents not getting dressed to take their children to school. Kate Chisolm, a primary school head teacher, asked parents escorting their children to school to dress 'appropriately in daywear suitable for weather conditions'. I feel no ill will towards this educator, if you're willing to take my little tyrant off my hands for the day I will dance to the beat of whatever drum you're playing. I have, however, been a bit taken aback by the level of judgement from other parents towards those that don a onesie for a school run. I thought it was readily accepted that parenting was a judgement free zone? My husband takes our son to school in a ratty tracksuit and then goes for a two mile run. What if the mother you're side eyeing has postnatal depression and getting her child to school was the only thing she could manage that day? What if, like me, that parent suffers from incurable laziness and this is just a step too far?

If you're offended by the demand of daywear you could always home educate your children where you would be free to wear pyjamas all day but if you're down for a bit of rebellion check out my top suggestions for nightwear you can wear all day.

1) HUSH As far as I'm concerned Hush make the ultimate in classy night wear. Their pieces are nicer than most of my actual clothes! Slip on some of their jersey trousers for that relaxed lady that lunches vibe.

2) NEXT Next have some amazing day time pyjamas, known amongst fashionistas as lounge wear. Some of their stuff is so cute, I think they'd also make excellent choices for staying comfy but cool on a long journey.

3) ASOS ASOS loungewear is regularly updated so you can get a new school run uniform every week! Their delivery service is so slick it makes it a pleasure to shop for your PJ's in your PJ's.

4) THE WHITE COMPANY Who doesn't love the white company? So chic, I sometimes just wander round the store hoping it will rub off on me. These pieces are a bit pricey so stick them on your next birthday wish list.

5) UGGS Let's just be honest, Uggs are slippers. Slip them on in the morning and you're good to go for the rest of the day.


I'd love to hear what you wear on the school run? Do you take it easy or pull out all the stops.

  1. Oh god if I'm ever told uggs are socially unacceptable school run attire I think I will have to home school my children. I'm also off to go check out Hush - never heard of it before and I'm all about comfort clothes that are can leave the house! Great post. #fabfridaypost

  3. We have awhile until we need to think about the school run but I would totes be the mum rocking the sleep wear to the drop off! There's far more important things to worry about in this life. I'm so sad I missed your giveaway :( I kept on thinking I need to pop back and enter! Congrats to your winner x

    1. Yes, I'm always dropping my boy off late to nursery. I'm a little bit worried about when I have to get him to school on time every day!

  4. Hehe, so agree about Uggs! I thought it was an incredibly stupid thing for a headteacher to come out with - before she had parents bringing her kids to school and engaging with school events, I fear that now she just won't... #fabfridaypost

    1. Yes, I think it's important to keep parents on side but apparently the response has been good. I also think it's okay to say get dressed when you come to my place of work. If you want to come to assemblies and meetings where some clothes please. The school run though, not so sure.

  5. You are so right, for some parents it is all they can do to get their kids to school whilst battling mental illness or physical illness. We really shouldn't judge. To be honest I have gone in anything from trackies to a beautiful dress, depends on my day, how I feel and what else I have on. I haven't done the PJ's but my kids make me walk them to class and to be honest I sleep in a singlet and undies most nights so I may be judged if I showed up in that!

  6. I totally agree on the not judging, but equally I couldn't see myself leaving the house in my PJs either - would I think differently if I had kids, who knows? It is odd that the tatty gym kit is acceptable though, and none of us ever know what anyone else has gone through that morning. Thanks for linking up to #PoCoLo

  7. No judging ever would be good! Alas there will always be judgemental people out there. I have always been a jeans and t-shirt/jumper type gal. I'll occasionally do the school run in jogging bottoms and t-shirt if I'm feeling lazy. I don't however, do the whole make-up and smart clothes thing - I just can't be bothered!

  8. Great list of reiteration wear! I agree that the school has stepped over the line here. They should be more concern of those who suffers postnatal depression. It is just ridiculous! Thank you for linking up with us. #FabFridayPost
