It seems like it was just last week when I stepped out of an airplane into a cool New England summer morning and drove with my parents to visit the Gordon College campus in Wenham, Massachsuetts. Within seconds of stepping onto campus, I passionately declared to my mother, “I have to go to college here!” I was 17 years old.
Now I’m 43, and I’m the one getting ready to take my son to visit college campuses. Life sure has a way of coming full circle, doesn’t it?
Jen over at Making Our Life Matter is in the same boat, and she asked me to write a post about what to wear as a mom on a college visit.
My goal will be to look casual and comfortable, but not sloppy. I want to be sure to look more like a mom than a college student. There’s a fine line between looking hip and embarrassing your kid, ya know??
Unless there is a formal interview scheduled, the kids will be wearing jeans and t-shirts or sweatshirts so there’s no need to dress in business attire.
For summertime visits, white jeans with a cute top and flats like I’ve shown above would be perfect. Or a casual skirt or dress could also work. I would just steer clear of shorts. read more >>
