One of the upsides of Covid for me has been the chance to take James to preschool and pick him up. It’s a highlight of my day that I try never to miss. Even though it’s all done in a very socially distanced way, I love watching his excitement when he sees his friends at drop off and the smile on his face when he sees me at pick up. It’s also a nice way for me to break up my Zoom meetings and get some fresh air. Since we’re within walking distance of his preschool, it also forces me to get somewhat dressed and to run a brush through my hair. I’m a big proponent of planning out your outfits in advance to make my mornings run smoother, and these days, that means putting together school drop off/pick up outfits that I can quickly reach for before running out the door.
As much as I love to spend the day in sweats or leggings, I am so much more productive when I get dressed in “real clothes”, even if it’s just to change out of my pajamas and into joggers and a matching sweater. With that said, I do not have the energy or time these days to put a lot of thought into what I’m wearing. I need a uniform, or at least some go-to outfits that I can rotate through and throw on — whether I am planning to workout after drop off, run home to a meeting, or try to squeeze in some errands. If school drop off/pick up is the big social event of your day as well, aka only time you really see other people, and you’re looking for help figuring out what to wear without making too much effort, you’ve come to the right place. I’ve assembled some easy school drop off/pick up outfits that I can quickly throw on in the morning and look put-together.
