Get Hygge With It

Dress: Innika Choo Bag: JW Pei, shop similar This summer is going to look quite different than many others we have experienced. I’m well aware that this summer isn’t going to be a “typical summer.” To start, we will probably be social distancing from each other and wearing face masks.

Sweatshirt n. Philathropy Sweatpants Frank & Eileen      This is my take on love in the time of Covid a dispatch from day 20 of quarantine. I have been sitting here for over two weeks trying to detangle the wires about the Covid-19 pandemic.
