Happy weekend. This was definitely a very scary week (that goes without saying but still wanted to acknowledge that). I have said it on social media but my hope is that my blog can be a refuge when you are stressed from the news and want a distraction. I am operating under the assumption that you are staying informed and taking the right precautions. But when you’re doing all that it can feel like a lot so need to counter that with something fun and lighthearted.
That’s my job. I am not a doctor or a scientist and I’m not here to fearmonger or scare you. I want you guys to watch the news, wash your hands, not touch your face, and STAY IN. But I also want to provide you with a little levity. It will be biz as usual in these parts, with an emphasis on self-care and introverty things since we’ll all be staying home a lot more for a while.
Weekend Reading | 3.14.20
That is my spiel. I’ll be at home all weekend. As Vogue says… cancel everything! If it’s nice I’ll get out for a run/walk or two, but otherwise, social distancing is fully underway. Have a great weekend, stay safe and healthy! Annndd also: if you want to win 25 books + a dreaaaamy Parachute bedding set, enter this giveaway!
I loved this week of outfits (and not just because I love Madewell and THAT CAT!!!).
How pretty are the swingy bell sleeves of this top?
Some good projects while we are staying home: love these fun master bedroom decorating ideas, the best ways to store your winter clothing for next year, how to CLEAN YOUR PHONE! (also: the best hand sanitizers!)
Helena has the best taste and I loved her roundup of blazers.
Blouses are always so hard to perfectly tuck in. This bodysuit is genius!
SUCH a cute straw tote.
Wow: Dakota Johnson’s home is BEYOND. It made me weep a little bit as she’s only 30!
The Flip the Switch challenge is making me laugh.
How pretty is this little mint green dress?
Get 20% off of my beloved Dr. Bader! (And other beauty brands, too! But really.. BADER)
The sweatpants all my friends keep raving about – apparently they feel like cashmere?
A really good article with all the details of the do’s and don’ts of social distancing. There’s so much information out there; I found this to be very helpful. This is a good article too.
The perfect ivory blazer for Spring.
This slip dress is positively gorgeous (love every single color; how is it only $25!).
Really loved Merritt’s Spring outfit try on. We wear around the same size and also like a lot of the same things so I kind of want to buy everything she bought!
These adult “award ribbons” would make great gifts.
Big batch recipes to make now.
I love love loved this guide to mixing up your Spring basics!
Secret elite airline statuses you didn’t even know about!!
Have you seen the new Clare V x Anthropologie collection? It’s really good.
Very into the ruffle hem on this cute dress. Is it weird that I want the orange?
