I think it’s safe to assume most of us didn’t expect to spend the first day of spring amidst a global pandemic. I am sure many of you can relate to the emotional ups and downs of the last few days. Each day is a constant wave of emotion alternating between anxiety and trying to focus on silver linings and what I can do to help others. The truth is, there is no right way to deal with what is happening right now. This is an unprecedented situation that I don’t think many of us ever could have imagined. I hope you can find comfort and happy moments throughout the day, whether it’s a phone call to a friend or family member, a creative project or snuggling with a pet or loved one. I am working on ways to support those who need our help right now, locally I’ve created a landing page where you can support small businesses, and today I’ll be sharing a PSA in the hopes of helping our healthcare workers on the front lines that desperately need our voices right now to help get them the equipment and protective gear they need. Be safe, be smart and please if you are able, STAY HOME.
With love, Jess

Getting dressed in the morning (when I can) is one of the few things that give me a sense of “normalcy” these days. This outfit I got from Verishop is up to 25% off (button down size small-runs tts/slightly small, jeans run tts-slightly stretchy). My favorite denim shorts (in ricochet) are also in stock in all sizes. They also have free 1 day shipping and free returns.
For those of you interested in Moms on Call they’re offering 40% off their online video courses right now with code MOC40.

Sezane is donating 10% of all proceeds to the emergency fund set up to support French hospitals. Delivery is also free right now. The striped organic cotton sweater I have that has been sold out is back in stock (I’d go at least a size or two up). I love this white cotton/linen blouse and these are my favorite Sezane denim style.
