Talk about it Tuesday 8/9/15



How did your back to school plans go?  Smoothly I hope.

Our teen was looking forward to going back to school which was good, although I admit I think that was mostly about seeing his friends.

As the day arrived I thought we had everything organised for a smart uniform:  crisp white shirts, polished shoes, a new school bag. …….and then we had ’skinny trouser gate’   the school trousers are not ’skinny’ enough!

So as we start this week I have bought two pairs from Next and returned one, bought a pair from M&S & returned them, we are now waiting for a pair from Topman, and If these aren’t skinny enough I’m buying him leggings.

Hope your cherubs haven’t been so fussy.

This is Talk about it Tuesday tell us what’s been happening in your life.

    Last year my tall, slim teen had gorgeous skinny leg trousers from LIM – they lasted really well too

    Oh this made me giggle. I definitely think you should order some leggings just for a laugh. When do they get so fussy ? I remember the days when the teen would wear anything that I put out for him. Give it another year and it could well be ‘skinny trouser gate’ in our house lol x
