The 10 Essentials

Sharing my 10 favorite essentials from Saks Fifth Avenue for moms’ school drop off outfits. From versatile tote bags to comfy 90s fit jeans, and the timeless appeal of white sneakers, these items are my ultimate go-to for effortless and stylish school mornings.

Tote Bag

Naghedi Tote bags are my go-to! Not only are the so roomy and durable, they are washable as well! They come in a variety of sizes from small, medium, and large. I prefer the large one for school pickup as it holds all of my daily essentials. Plus, these totes are great not only for your everyday needs but travel too!

Outfit Set

An easy casual outfit set is a must have not only for school drop offs, but also for those days you want to wear something comfortable and easy to style. Varley is my go to. They have a variety of comfortable, but chic pieces that pair great together. Simply add your tote bag and sunglasses to complete the look and you’re set for an easy school drop off outfit.


A classy and comfortable T-shirt is another wardrobe essential for those school drop off days. I own this Skims boyfriend tee in every color, and it is not only comfortable, but such great quality. They also have a longsleeve version that is great for those colder months.

Half Zip Sweatshirt

Half zip sweatshirts are my go-to for layering on drop-off mornings. Varley sweaters are my favorite as they are so soft. Varley also has a variety of matching shorts and pants to choose from for a comfortable, put-together look. I usually size down when it comes to my Varley half-zip sweatshirts as well because they can run a little big.

90s Fit Jean

90s fit Jean are my favorite essential pair of mom jeans. These Agolde 90’s fit jean is my go-to for a casual days. They are not only comfortable, but so flattering. I normally pair them with a classic t-shirt and a half-zip layered on top when the weather is cooler.

Active Dress

A cute and comfortable active dress is another great option. It gives off a put-together vibe, while still remaining comfortable. I personally love the new line by Staud Court that has many adorable active dress options.


Leggings are always a wardrobe essential. I love Beyond Yoga for the softness and comfort of their leggings. They are also so flattering and come in a variety of different colors and styles. Another thing I love about them is that they have matching sets which can be a great drop-off outfit idea. Plus, it can easily transition from drop-off to a morning workout.

White Sneakers

White Sneakers are a must regardless of the season. Chloe and Common Projects are two of my favorite brands when it comes to white sneakers to go with every outfit. They are a both a bit more minimal than other options, which I love! They are also both amazing quality, so they will last you for years to come.

Black Sunglasses

Classic Black Sunglasses are another wardrobe essential all year round. While they are a splurge, these Saint Laurent sunglasses are my go to! They are absolutely so flattering and they go great with every outfit, regardless of the season.

Baseball Cap

I normally finish off my drop-off look with a classic baseball cap. My go-to favorite baseball hats are by Anine Bing. There are a variety of neutral to colorful options that make styling a breeze.
