Ah school drop off, I never thought I’d be so excited to take my son to in-person (!!) school every morning, but here we are. Is it weird to say it’s given me a renewed purpose to look presentable in the morning? One of my good friends described it best as “now that I am going to be around other parents, I try and dress like what if I ran into an ex-boyfriend – I don’t want to look like I tried too hard, but I want them to leave hopefully thinking a little bit about me.” Maybe it sounds vain, but I feel good when I look good. And I know I’m not alone. I asked my instagram followers if they’d like see to my daily drop off looks and the response was overwhelmingly positive.

It’s been a fun daily project, because it inspires me to be creative with my more practical outfits. Are they the most exciting looks I’ve ever posted? Probably not. But they’re definitely the most realistic. I walk my son to school everyday, so heels and handbags (accessories that normally make outfits IG-worthy) are no-go’s. I also really have to think about the weather, more so than if I’m dressing for work).

We just wrapped our third week of school, so I thought I’d share the results of this challenge. And if you’re dropping kids off at school, I’d love to get ideas from you! Do you have any go-to formulas to look good in the morning? Also, I’ll be continuing this challenge on IG, so feel free to follow along and tag your #dropofflook‘s – I’ll share those, too!

Can you tell me what size you’re wearing in the RL sweatshirt? The model in the Macy’s link is 5′ 10″ and she’s wearing a S. I’m 5’4″ and 115 lbs so no sure I should get an XS. I hate tight sweatshirts, though.

Hi Donna,

I”m wearing an XS and it was pretty loose on me. That being said, I’m pretty small up top. But it does seem to be cut to a slightly looser fit. Hope that helps!
