Back To School Tips For College

Back To School Tips For College | adoubledose.comHappy Friday! We hope you all are having a great week, and have some fun things planned for this weekend! We wanted to share this super fun summer casual look and some back school tips for college! We know it is time to go back to school, so we wanted to share some of the things we learned over the years, and wish we knew! Before we get into those tips, we wanted to share more about this outfit! These embroidered shorts are a must. They are SO comfy, but still look put together, so they are perfect for school! Back To School Tips For College | adoubledose.comWe paired them with a basic white tank and this fun clutch! We wore these wedges with them, but you could also do some flat sandals!Back To School Tips For College | adoubledose.comAnd, now for our tips on back to school! In case you missed our post last weekend on back to school musts, you can check that out here!


We are super Type A, so before school started, we walked around the campus to figure out where our classes where, since UT is so big! It helped us not be so nervous about it on the first day, and avoid being late or missing your class! Some of those buildings are hard to find.

We are not major fans of tiny classes, just because we don’t like to participate as much, but we think smaller classes can be helpful when you don’t know the material that well, and can get more hands-on help!


We are all about the comfy wear. Yes, we know most college girls like to wear their big t-shirts and shorts to class, and we can’t blame them. We have all done it, haha! We would say something comfy, but put together is the way to go, unless you just want to wear your big t-shirt, then that is fine, too! Something like some denim shorts, like these, or some kind of drawstring short and a basic tee and flat sandals is easy! When it gets cooler out, you could do a some leggings or jeans and a long-sleeve tee or thick sweater and some slip ons or booties!Back To School Tips For College | Back To School Tips For College | adoubledose.comHOW TO STAY FOCUSED:

Again, we are super Type A, so we were always hyper focused on school and doing well. We do think that there is a balance, though! You are in college, so you definitely want to have fun, but you also want to have a degree and good job at the end of your college experience. We were involved in several organizations while in school, and think it is a great way to meet people and form your core group of friends. Once we met our friends and felt settled in that sense, it was much easier for us to balance it all. In the beginning, it is a hard balance to find. You want to go to all of these events and everything is SO new, but remember, you still are there to go to school.

We think it important to go to those events, but also set time aside during the week, or in between classes to focus on school and studying. You can also forms study groups with some of your friends, that way you can kill two birds with one stone!

It also helps to talk to other people about this, whether it is your friends, or your family. They are probably going through the same thing, or have been through it!Back To School Tips For College | adoubledose.comHOW TO DESTRESS:

This is a tricky topic because it is something we both struggle with! There are a few things we recommend that we still use today:

  • Go to a yoga class or workout
  • Take a walk outside
  • Call a family member or friend
  • Take yourself out to dinner or shopping
  • Grab a coffee or tea and sit outside with no distractions
  • Listen to a podcast
