I hope you all had a good weekend and tried a few of the self-care tips I shared on Friday. This is a work look I wore to a client meeting back in February, now it that seems like a lifetime ago.
My belted trench cape is from Talbots. I have worn it here with a plaid work pant. This is a cozy sweater dress I got on Nordstrom awhile ago. Sweater dresses are great in Spring when the weather is cold and the wind still has a distinct chill!
I love how versatile capes and sweater dresses are! You can dress them up or down. They are classic pieces that help extend your wardrobe.
I will admit, I was doing a bit of anxiety shopping this weekend. All of the retailers are having massive sales due to the economic market condition. I should be saving my money – but instead, I shopped the Nordstrom 40% off sale.
Nordstrom 40% Off ♦ Abercrombie 50% off entire site ♦ the Banana Republic, Old Navy, and Gap are 50% Everything ♦ ASOS is 50% off sitewide ♦ J.Crew is 40% off with code: SPRING ♦ Anthropologie is 40% off select style ♦ Madwell is 30% off select styles with code: SWEETDEAL ♦ Revolve 20% off Spring dresses
To get you all caught up for the week here I am also recapping some of the most Newsworthy Moments that have happened over the last week!
Queen Elizabeth has only addressed the public 4 times, and on Sunday she made it the 5th when she addressed the world about coronavirus lockdown and the isolation issues people across the world are facing.
Boris Johnson the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, who was the first world leader to test positive for the coronavirus, was admitted to the hospital over the weekend due to his symptoms.
The United States has passed over 330,000 cases of coronavirus and the CDC is recommending wearing a mask in public to help limit infection. They are now finding coronavirus is spreading further than expected.
Washington State (my home state) is taking the stay-at-home order seriously and we have seen a 20% decline in hospitalized patients with coronavirus. Based on this positive trend Governor Inslee has sent several shipments of ventilators to other states that have been hit hard with the virus, like New York and California.
Unemployment has risen to 6.6 million in the United State. If you have recently been laid off make sure you file for unemployment benefits in your state ASAP. Do not wait. It can take a bit to process and the 2 trillion dollar stimulus package has given additional unemployment relief.
Instacart and Amazon employees went on separate strikes to protest the unhealthy working conditions amid the coronavirus pandemic and the lack of protective gear for the workers. Multiple amazon warehouse workers have tested positive for the coronavirus.
Stay safe and healthy!
