It has become the norm that I find myself doing an endless list of chores and errands on the weekends now. What is it even like to be outdoors for a long period of time and be social? I don’t know anymore! Luckily for us, there are a few things to keep us busy. I’ve found a way to have things to look forward to even in this pandemic election time mess.
What We’re Watching: PEN15 Season 2
A new season of PEN15 has arrived on Hulu! Never have I ever felt so uncomfortable and awkward watching a series, but have also found such joy. PEN15 is so cringe because it reminds us of the strange pre-teen/teenage years we all thought we left behind. Having it resurface is a bit of a trigger, but the two leads (and writers!) of the show, Maya Erskine and Anna Konkle do a phenomenal job of depicting this. It has been some time in between seasons so I’m hoping I can savor it as opposed to watching it all in one weekend.
What We’re Listening To: Dynamite (NightTime version) by BTS
We’re now listening to “Dynamite” on a daily basis, but because they’ve remixed this single so many times, I can listen to about eight different versions of it. Every day could be a different remix. I’ve never heard of a nighttime remix before, but the versions on this (there are 5!) are much more laid back and chill than the original versions or even the daytime remix. Pick the one that reflects your mood!
What We’re Wearing: [Zella Girl Supersoft Side Tie Hoodie] – $39
I bought this from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale on discount and even though I’ve had this for a month, it’s the first time I’m wearing it today! We’re not spending much time out today, but it’s the perfect cozy piece for home, lounging around, or over your activewear. Even if times were normal, I would wear this out to a brunch or daily errands.
What We’re Eating: Dim Sum
One of my favorite weekend traditions growing up was going out for dim sum with my family. With everything going on, I can’t remember having it since even before the pandemic. Luckily, we’re picking up all of my favorites today to go. It may not be exactly the same experience, but we’ll take it! Here’s hoping that everything returns to normal soon so that we can continue moving forward with all of the things we want to do in a safe and healthy way.
It’s wild to think that I’ve now gone six months without leaving the city at all! Reflecting back on it, I’m not as stir crazy as some other people I know who have already taken their trips during the pandemic so we’re doing alright. I do, however, have a mini trip outside of the city planned and now that it’s on the books, I’m very much looking forward to it. Diptyque feels your pain though. As part of their collection last year, they created a set of candles based on popular destinations. Back then those candles were only available in their respective traveling destination cities. Due to popular demand, they are now back for a week and can be purchased online starting today! Shop the candles now retailing at $74 USD [here].
Through the years, my love for Anna Sui has grown deeper and deeper! Her intersection between feminine and slightly goth is a style that speaks to me. It’s not anything I ever thought I would love growing up, but it’s the collection that you gravitate towards because it’s intriguing.Read more “Anna Sui”
[Washable Silk Set] – $178
Now that I’ve had all this time to spend at home, it really doesn’t make sense to get dressed up every day. Denim jeans are no longer the first thing that I gravitate towards. I may not be as active when I’m working from home and milling about between four different rooms, but I want to be comfortable nonetheless. After comfort, the second thing that I want to prioritize is feeling good. Getting ready and putting a face on helps me to feel awake. The combination of these two things is what has drawn me towards [Lunya] recently. While I don’t own any pieces by them yet, I’m keeping my eye on them.
Known for specializing in comfortable sleepwear and inspired by off-duty ballerinas, there’s no reason why you can’t mix and match these pieces and find a way to incorporate them in your daily wear. Here are just a few of our favorites!
[Cool High Rise Pant] – $138
[Restore Short] – $68
[Restore Pocket Legging] – $98
[Prima Silk Chiffon Set] – $278
