Ok, off the top, are you guys shopping during quarantine? Yes or no?
When this all started, I’ll be honest, I went hard on the online shopping front. Amazon, Forever 21, Groceries, I had to buy an new laptop… all of it. Probably too much, if we’re being honest. But look, I’m human. And I was bored. I’m still bored. Ugh. Aren’t we all?
So I thought it would be fun, and perhaps helpful, to compile a quick list of everything I bought up until now. Maybe it will help someone who’s looking to shop? Maybe you’re so bored you just want to look into what I’ve been up to the last few weeks? I don’t know, and whatever got you here is fine with me.
And look, the fact that a lot of people are NOT shopping has not been lost on me. I know this is a tough time for everyone. People have lost their jobs (I lost my job as well), doctors and nurses are working around the clock, anxiety is high for us all, we’re scared and all trying to just navigate this new normal. I know the struggle is real.
I’ve done some shopping, but I’ve been trying to be smart about it and buy things that are on sale only, or things that will help keep me sane for the next month or two. I, like I’m sure you are, am trying to remain focused on the essentials, and not shop ’til i drop, but sometimes you just gotta treat yourself.
1980’s Puzzle– this one was HARD but kept us busy for a while. Love it!
Adult coloring book– I mean, what else am I going to do for the next month?
Clay Mask– we all need a little pampering, right? Now more than ever.
Retail Therapy for me:
AE Sweatpants– can’t wait to wear these, they look so comfy! And $20!
AE Tank Top- will be great with jeans, or if I ever decide to work out? Versatile.
Smocked Tank Top– such a cute little summer top! And $15!
Dark Jeans– I needed a new pair of classic dark jeans.
Faded cropped jeans– I got these in the Short length, and I wish I had just gone regular. They’re a little too cropped, but still cute nontheless!
Cozy sweatpants– who doesn’t need another pair of cozies to lounge around in while we’re stuck at home?
Tie front top– I have a version of this in red and love it, so seemed like the perfect time to get another color!
For the man:
Basic Tee– love this charcoal color and it’s such a good staple.
Distressed Tee– who doesn’t need another white basic?
Fleece Crewneck- obsessed with this olive color and it looks super comfy!
Joggers– who’s man doesn’t need another pair of basic joggers for lounging around the house?
Slim jeans– sales are the perfect time to grab new jeans. Love these!
Grey jeans– I mean, why not two pairs when they’re on sale?
