Come On, Own Up!

Which group of you home educators are managing to stay well dressed? I thought the one defining feature of home educators was that they didn't give a monkeys that they have to run around covered in baby sick and paint. Tell me otherwise, or I shall have to conclude that Mr. Finn has been dreaming.

I can manage clean and no obvious rips or holes with a little effort but I don't think I could ever be mistaken for "smartly dressed ".

I know some very glamorous home educators in West London, who have managed to perfect the "just got out of bed" look to a T. The trick seems to be husband's pyjamas, covered up with a grungy-style coat, tousled hair covered with last year's Joseph skull cap. All acompanied by plenty of anti-fashionista remarks. Works a treat.

Yes, if you don't look like you just got out of bed you are clearly spending too much of your life ironing clothes

I believe we own an iron. Although it might have got left behind in the last move (almost 2 years ago).

Oh we have an iron, but I only use it on dd's stuff. Now SHE has stylish clothes! I think she gets the desire to dress up nice from her paternal grandmother, it sure as heck isn't from me.

Dress code for activities should be appropriate for the occasion. In order to preserve an atmosphere of integrity, respect and to insure an experience free of distractions.
