If you’ve entered the ‘treat yourself’ phase of quarantine, welcome. The longer I spend in perpetual hermit-life, the more enticed I am to lean on little luxuries to make every day feel a little more elevated and exciting. Now – excitement means finding the perfect pullover or a cute wireless charger for my desk, but I digress…
If you’re in the mood for a little pick-me-up, these picks are just the thing.
The Ultimate WFH / Mom @ The Park Outfit
Cozy, cute layers are the name of the game. I couldn’t resist this quilted cream + blush pullover – it looks as polished (but casual!) over leggings as it does with a pair of jeans. Layer up with a longsleeve tee and a vest or wear it alone. Patagonia Women’s Organic Cotton Quilt Snap-T Pullover, $189.
High-rise, super-soft and cozy with an adorable scallop detail – sign me up. These leggings will really go the distance and they’re also very forgiving in size. I wore the same two pairs before, during and after my pregnancy before I replaced them with these. Lululemon Align High Rise Pant 25″ Scallop, $118.
Sneakers outnumber cute flats in my closet for the first time in my life. These are perfect for pavement, trails or a quick errand. I have them in black, too, and love how supportive and comfortable they are. Nike Women React Infinity Run Flyknit Sneaker, $215.
The Prettiest Scrunchie
Popping your hair in a pony or bun day after day doesn’t have to feel boring. My scrunchie collection has exploded in the last few months, but when I’m feeling fancy I reach for this Rifle Paper Co. scrunchie from Stoney Lake Textiles. The long pointed French scarf tail feels oh-so-fancy – even if you’re just going to the grocery store. Rifle Paper Co. Deluxe Scrunchie, $20. (PS . this is also where I get my favourite fabric masks!)
Your New Desk BFF
Upgrade your desk tech situation with a wireless charging pad. Having your phone at hand without having it tethered to a charging cord is a strange and wonderful kind of freedom. I love the sleek white & metallic rose of this one – it looks super cute on my desk. Satechi Aluminum Wireless Charger, $49.
Instant Meal Upgrade
If you’re on a kitchen experiment kick – or just trying to get excited about eating the same thing over and over again, this is for you. I feel the same way about this truffle hot sauce as I did when I first encountered sriracha. Let’s just say this is bougie sriracha. Infused with black truffle oil from Italy, this thick hot sauce packs the perfect punch of heat. It looks & feels elevated and tastes great on just about anything – Annie’s white mac& cheese, soft boiled eggs on toast, pizza crust, chicken… just try it. TRUFF Hot Sauce, $24.99. (Also available at Pusateri’s)
When I shared I was having trouble sleeping, so many people recommended this. If you’re feeling a little wound up when it’s time to wind down, a quick spritz of this essential oil-spiked spray should help! I keep this on my nightstand for those times when I know sleep will be hard to come by – or I want to entice an extra-deep snooze. This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray, $34.
That’s all for this week! If you feel like helping a girl out, I’m on the hunt for the perfect vest to add to my collection of layers. I’d love something quilted, but would settle for something that isn’t puffy and giant. Any suggestions?
