Between backpacks and lunch boxes and new shoes for the kiddos, it’s super fun to shop during back-to-school time. But I’m thinking about all the mamas and caregivers, too. It’s good to show ourselves a little love this time of year.
Mom’s Back-To-School Wishlist: A Comfy, Cozy Drop-Off Outfit
And what do we want? Comfy clothes that look cute for school drop-off. At least that’s what is at the top of my fall list every year. And coffee. Always coffee. Perhaps a little bling as well? Mostly to distract from the puffy eyes in my case. Heh. (Our first bell at our elementary school rings at 8 am. That should be outlawed.)
1. A Comfy Lounge-To-Drop-Off Set
Even we self-proclaimed fashionistas just want to roll out of bed and look presentable. Especially in those first few weeks of getting back into the school routine. This Nike set (joggers & hoodie) is soft and lightweight for early fall and so comfy. Don’t be discouraged when you receive it…it washes into the softest softness after the first wash. I sized up here to a medium for a comfier fit, but probably could have stuck TTS in the jacket.
2. A Structured But Wearable Jacket To Throw On
This Levi’s classic jean jacket has a little stretch and is so comfy for layering over this hoodie to make it feel a little more face-the-world ready. TTS wearing a Small.
3. Cozy Slippers
I mean, always a fall and winter wishlist item for me. These from Koolaburra by UGG are SO soft and cozy and come up higher on your foot. I love that style because it stays on much better as you traipse up and down the stairs. Cute doggo not included. TTS.
4. Rad Sneakers
Oh hi fresh white sneakers…never a bad choice for getting excited about a new season. These Nike Court sneakers are on-trend, so comfy and a great transitional shoe as we ditch the sandals for a while. They do run a little big, unlike most other Nikes.
5. A Bit of Shine
A little bling makes loungewear totes passable as a real outfit. It ups your game a bit and with these cute LC by Lauren Conrad pieces you can do it in a reasonable way too and create those stacks of necklaces and bracelets. Love that look.
6. COFFEE, Always…& Make It To-Go Please
I’m picky about my to-go coffee cups and this one is a great ceramic mug that only looks like cute metal speckle-ware but doesn’t change the taste of your coffee and has that weight I like. The lid fits in snuggly for on-the-go.
7. And Don’t Forget The Cute Face Masks
Um, like I did when we took these photos. Oops! But I’ve had these Levi’s masks since last year and they fit well and are oh so cute.
Last but not least…um, a little quiet time at home is on my list. Whew. Right? Just like 10 minutes to form a full thought. Heh. I mean, LOVE YOU DAUGHTER.
