Default Wearing dressing gowns out ????

Had to see if anyone else thinks it's a tad strange

There is a few Mums that collect their children, wearing slippers, dressing downs and what looks like PJ's on !

I am definitely not a snob ....but I find this soooo strange.

Some Spanish ladies are soooo stunning and stylish....wearing high-heels, designer jeands etc to the MARKET and on a boiling hot day....(there's me in me flip-flops )

I think it's quite endearing that the locals don't put on any pretence ......but is this just where I live or is this normal?

No, I think it´s pretty much everywhere. Although most of the women wearing dressing gowns in the street are at least 140 years old, not hanging around outside school gates!!

No that is normal, all the women no matter what age are in there PJ and dressing gowns most of the day, I could tell winter !!!! was coming when I saw the first in the local shop in her PJ s.
The women here do there house work in them.
I have never seen one in the market though.The designer wear is the norm there.

Welllll - I have to admit to doing this when I first came to Spain, but mainly cos I worked hard and could be bothered to get dressed in the mornings! I did get strange looks and then decided if the car broke down etc I would die of embarrassment!

Now the kids are older there is NO WAY tey will let me out looking like that. Teenagers huh!?!

No, not kidding. They do it round here too. Usually out at about midday cleaning the outside of the house or the pavement or going to the local shop in their dressing gowns and slippers. Sometimes curlers too for that finishing effect.

I´ll see if I can get you some photographic evidence and post it on here. (That is if they don´t think I am a pervert taking photos of old women in their bed wear).

P'raps there should be a prize for the first person to be able to get photographic evidence of this phenomenon (without being arrested) and who posts it on here! No contrived photos allowed!
