Then I caught a glance of myself in the M&S mirrors while passing through en route to my second meeting and I stopped dead. The floral trousers were just AWFUL. I stood and knew I couldn't wear them a moment longer. They are for the charity bag...something about the length and the colours? I just can't put my finger on it but it's making me want to ditch all my floral/patterned bottom halves...I think they're not for short legged pear shapes.
So I grabbed a pair of M&S khaki coloured jeggings and raced into the changing room. The M&S lady there was wonderful when I explained my 'wardrobe malfunction' and she got me to take the label off the jeggings and brought me to the till to explain to her colleague that I was already wearing what I wanted to buy.
Just on an aside - these jeggings are a great buy. They come in a loads of different colours and are reduced by 20% at the moment making them only £18. I was asked a few weeks ago about a good place to get khaki skinnies and I'd not found one before now. Get them here! I am wearing the 12 Regular. I tried on the 10 but while they fitted, they were a bit neat on me for this style of skinny trouser/jeans/jeggings.
Which brings me onto the word jeggings....I don't get it. The Gap forever stretch leggings I have are basically the same as these - though a bit higher on the waist. Both pairs are made of stretchy denim material and have all the pockets that jeans would have....so in my mind, they're just skinny jeans. Surely Jeggings are jersey jeans...using the material that leggings are made of? Then there's Treggings....and Super Skinnies. I'm really lost. In essence, don't get put off by the Jegging title...they're skinny jeans made from a lightweight denim.
So you'll have to visualise me in the same outfit as above but with the jeggings as I was running late and couldn't take pictures.
I get home and there's another wardrobe malfunction with my blouse - this time involving beetroot. So I change into one that I got from Damart a while back but that I've not worn before as I wasn't quite sure about the neckline. I can't find it on the site but I think it's going to be ok. You can never have enough cream blouses...
Blouse - Damart
Shoes - Dune as before
And for the 2nd school run of the day, I ditched the biker jacket and went with a denim jacket and a lightweight scarf.

I don't think I even got there by the 4th outfit....but I think we all have days like this. Tell me I'm not alone in this multiple changing carry-on!
