WHEN COVID-19 HITS HOME

I originally drafted today’s post a lifetime ago when I was uber-prego with Sadie and the world was still “normal.” I remember having such bad morning sickness sorting through all of these grocery store photos, I couldn’t bring myself to press publish so I hit ‘archive.’ Thankful to have rediscovered these shots this week because they have so much more meaning now. Naiya and I took these photos for a branded shoot and today, I’m finding comfort in seeing a snapshot of what life was like before COVID-19. Remember grocery shopping without a mask or without waiting in line six feet apart to get in?! Sharing these photos with you today as well as a family update. Spoiler alert: COVID-19 has really hit home for our family and life over the past few weeks has been a lot.

For the past few months, I’ve been on a mission to find a little slice of zen amidst the CRAZIEST YEAR EVER.  Since it’s becoming increasingly difficult to do so, sharing some tips below that have been working for me.  All of these ideas may sound rather simple but I’ve found them to be extremely helpful during this social distancing time.

Now that we’re in phase two of the quarantine, I’ve officially graduated from athleisurewear back to denim.  After all, I’ve been craving some sense of normalcy and fashion makes me happy. But since it’s important to still stay comfy all day (SO many zoom calls!), I’ve been wearing a very specific type of denim on repeat–oversized, wide legged jeans. Sharing the comfiest pair I’ve been living in that also happens to be at an affordable price point. Also including full outfit details below because I’m obsessing over this white blouse with the an oversized bow too.

5 GRAPHIC TEES YOU NEED IN YOUR LIFE

Over the past few weeks of the quarantine, one of my go-to wardrobe staples have been oversized graphic tees. After all, I’ve officially graduated from the sweatpants I wore on repeat throughout the first few weeks of the shut-down. Sharing five graphic tees with you today that I’ve been living in and how I’m styling them. Topping off this post with some unpublished photos of Naiya from the week we found out we were prego with Sadie. She’s aged about 10 years in the quarantine so far so I’m especially loving looking back at these photos from before she was basically a teenager!
