TGIF! We made it through perhaps the longest week of the year (or perhaps of our lives), amiright?! Things are crazy. We can all acknowledge that fact. A few things I did to make me feel more “normal” and at ease this week: several outdoor walks around my neighborhood each day, upbeat music on in the background while working from home, at-home workouts, and I got dressed (no leggings) every day this week. Getting dressed may seem like an unnecessary chore, but I promise it makes a big difference. I even applied a bit of makeup each day too.

I’m sharing pics of my outfits this week throughout the blog post to provide a little inspiration. And on a high note, almost every item that I wore this week is currently on sale! I linked all of the pieces under each photo.

This Week’s Blog Posts

Why I’m Practicing Social Distancing and Social Isolation // At this point, I hope everyone is practicing social distancing and home isolation. Get outside, take walks, get some fresh air, but otherwise, let’s all stay home.

Beautycounter Favorites // 10% Off Sitewide! // Beautycounter is still offering 10% off sitewide! I shared all of my favorite makeup, skincare, and body care products in this post!

Weekly Workouts

This week’s workouts …

Since we’ve moved to strictly at-home workouts, I’ve been sharing my workouts daily on Instagram Stories. I saved them all to a highlight on my Instagram page if you need some inspiration!

Today (Friday), I’m trying out a live stream yoga class. My yoga studio, Yoga Works, is offering streamed yoga classes for free through the weekend (they might extend). You can check out the schedule here: https://www.yogaworks.com/classes/live/

Michael and I have also been taking numerous short walks around our neighborhood during the day to break up the days.

Podcast Recs

  • At-home pedicure
  • Switching closet to spring/summer
  • Reading my book – currently reading this!
  • Getting ahead on blog posts
  • Online yoga (thanks Yoga Works!)
  • West World marathon (we just started it this week!)

My Favorite Things this Week

A few of my favorite things this week …

J.Crew Sandals // I grabbed these a few weeks ago. Seen in two photos above. They’re the perfect slide for spring! The leather is super soft and I love the knot style!

YETI Coffee Mug // I always rave about my YETI mug. It keeps my coffee hot for hours, and let’s be honest, I really love the look of it too!

Abercrombie White Jeans // These are the most comfortable jeans I’ve purchased/worn in a LONG TIME. The perfect white denim for spring summer! High waisted, soft denim, loose, straight-leg fit. They run TTS, I wear my normal jean size 26.

Take a few deep breaths, get outdoors, and try to stay off social media for a bit this weekend! 🙂
