Okayyyyyy so recently it has been way to hot in CT! With August just around the corner and college move-in dates creeping into our calendars, it’s time to talk move-in day staples.

Ugh, I know what you guys thinking….it’s July AUBREY!  BUT if you’re a college student heading back to la campus then I bet you’re already stocking up on back to college necessities!

I’m a ‘prepare prepare prepare’ gal, so if you are anything like me I bet you are almost done with back to campus shopping. So I’m here to share my elder advice (JK).

So get ready for a story…

When I went to college (literally last year) I would arrive around August 20th and it would somehow always be the hottest day of the summer. I can remember getting all cute for move-in day & arriving looking like I just ran a marathon (ew).

Think gross, sticky, sweaty & really really thirsty. Guys we all love fall clothes and back to school shopping but let’s be honest for a moment, it’s still wayyyyyyy to hot to wear jeans on the first day of college.

So I’m hear to say tackle the first day in something, just as trendy but not as hot, like these jean shorts. mystic

So cute right! I feel like shorts get a bad stigma as way to casual,  but it’s August sooooooo I’m wearing them.

I also ALWAYS invest in a good back to school tote! Why? Well because backpacks are a pain & totes are just easier for a gal on the go.

I used my Barrington Tote all the way through college, it held up soooooo well! It actually lasted longer than my Longchamp bag, so consider that ladies. & the best part about the tote is that it fit everything. Think books, pencil case, wallet, laptop, notebooks and binders.

Literally everything!!!! barrington gift totes
