Ever since I was a little kid going into pre-K my mom and I would pick out a FDO or First Day Outfit. This year I went shopping on Saturday at J.Crew and Macy’s, I’ve been seriously very lucky when it comes to Macy’s, I found a cute dress and it actually fit! Then we went over to J.Crew (my happy place) and I bought a ton of sweaters that I didn’t need, but I loved! Also, I got another one of there vest in black I have the coral and the white vests and I love them- I highly recommend them you will live in them and layer them!
Now onto the actually first day of school I bring a notebook, folder, and two pencils, the first day you are basically just shuffling around getting adjusted to your new schedule and teachers. You need the folder to place important information like syllabuses, and the notebook to write down any school supplies you need to buy. There is no reason to go out and get six folders, binders, notebooks, etc. when in some classes you may only need a binder or a folder!
I am know as the mom at school, I carry everything and more I am always prepared & on time! My motto is “No matter what be prepared for anything.” I have my mini emergency kit at the ready along with my other bag filled with band aids, Motrin, lotion, a tooth brush, hair ties, hair spray, a hair brush, ten dollars as my emergency money, extra pair of headphones, and my charger for my phone. Whatever it is I can say I am prepared- I have double sided tape if a shirt doesn’t sit right or I have a sewing kit if a button falls off. Lastly, a little TMI if your sensitive- but everybody comes running to me for a tampon so ladies BE PREPARED!
