Favorites While Still in Quarantine

Hi friends! Okay, here we are. We’ve made it through the first week of May. Who knew we’d be spending all of spring in quarantine? I still can’t get used to everyone having on masks. Every time we go out (which isn’t all that frequently), I still feel like we’re living in some kind of alternate universe. I just wonder how long we will have to keep it up? In the mean time, we’ll just roll with it, and I’ve got favorites while still in quarantine.

I thought we’d start with the top 10 sellers from April. It’s always fun to look and see what resonated with y’all.

Madewell Sandals || Hat || Elite Oval Makeup Brush || Soma Pajamas (Top/Bottom) || Soma Cami Sleep Top || Patagonia Pullover || Loft Peplum
Linen joggers || Barefoot Dreams || Jeans

Katie loves her new Madewell slides. She wanted a new pair of shoes for PA school, and these are perfect. I won’t be able to “rest”, until you’re all wearing Soma Cool Nights PJs. See what I did there? Rest….PJs. I crack myself up. The peplum tanks from Loft are the easiest pieces to throw on with jeans or shorts, and speaking of jeans, the Wit and Wisdom cropped ankle length jeans, are so cute for summer.

Speaking of face masks. I ordered this box of 50 for us. I keep them by the back door, so they’re easy to grab. I am planning to make us some fabric ones, but until I do, these are great. I was really surprised I could find them, and they are still in stock.

I ordered myself a pair of black Tory Burch Millers back at the beginning of quarantine when Nordstrom had 25% off. Well they keep running such good sales, and I saw this new style, so I ordered them to compare. I love my regular TB’s. This new style has a thicker foot bed, and will be better for you if you want to try a pair of Millers, but the flatness of the originals doesn’t work for you. FYI – The new style runs a little wider than the original.


Our pool had a small leak in it when I blew it up the first time, so we ended up having to take it back. You would know it was sold out. We obviously aren’t the only people making the most of quarantine in our own backyard. I ordered this one for pick up from Target, and we’re back in business. The chair I’m sitting in has been a favorite for years. We purchased two of these when we lived in Minnesota. They have held up great. We’ve left them outside year round, and they look as good as the day we got them. These are the new version, if you’re looking for outdoor furniture.

Have a great weekend friends. Maybe you even live in an area where you can go to a restaurant. If you do, think of me.?

    I love how thick the new footbeds are for the Tory Burch sandals, but I still prefer the original smoother monogram. Decisions decisions! That patagonia from your april favorites is so cute!

      Me too, Laura. Katie got one of those and I got one for Kent too. My son and DIL both have them and love them. XO

    I ordered those same masks just this morning! As of Monday, they are required. Happy weekend to you!

      They are super convenient. I keep the box by the back door. XO

    I was a rebel and did not wear my face mask into the grocery store today. (I had it in my purse just in case.). I’ve heard sooo much conflicting info vs. wearing/not wearing. // Oh, man, sorry to hear about your pool having a hole in it! Way to mess up lounging outside–haha! Happy Mother’s Day!

      We have to wear them everywhere, which makes me feel better about wearing one. Not quite as awkward with everyone else doing it. XO

    I am on the hunt for more durable masks, since it seems we’ll be wearing them for awhile I need something that will last! Hope you have a super weekend my dear friend!

      I made KT one, and I’ve got them cut out for Kent and myself. XO

    Thank goodness you got the pool situation sorted out! Although the high is in the 40s here today–what the heck?! Hope you have a WONDERFUL Mother’s Day, Blog Mom! (Even if it is in quarantine!) xoxo

      I know, right. The pool was a crisis for sure. HA! XOXO

    I’m not a fan of seeing everyone in masks, too. Praying this is over SOON!

      I know, it’s just so surreal. I do at least like that we all have to do it out here, so I don’t feel quite as weird. XO
