Clothes gradually piled atop my duvet, the fabrics layering over one another like a Napoleon pastry. 

I couldn’t decide what to wear. One of the ways to maintain normalcy during the coronavirus pandemic is to go about one’s day as normal, and this sort of indecisiveness when selecting an outfit is certainly routine for me– especially when going out to brunch with friends.

Well, I didn’t “go out” per se, but Sunday brunch would prevail nevertheless. It would prevail despite sheltering in place at my family home in Northern California. It would prevail even though I hadn’t packed enough cute outfits when making my temporary exodus from LA. It. Would. Prevail!

With my will intact, I persevered through the ensemble expedition and settled on a leopard print wrap dress that fit like a glove. Then I ornamented my ears with iridescent teardrop earrings lines with rhinestones and gold detailing, colored my lips a cherry red and made my descent down the staircase for Sunday brunch with a friend of mine you all know very well. In the “together at home spirit,” Mari (Makatsaria, shocker) and I turned on our laptops, filled some flutes with mimosas and toasted to friendship despite social distancing.

We discussed how our world is sobering up in these crazy times to the reality that our culture’s idolization of not staying idle has escalated to the point of obsession. We’ve all overdosed on heavily-curated lifestyles and individualistic desires to the point of losing touch with the present and human connection. Being busy is great, but overworking, over-stressing, and FOMO-inducing are not.

Unfortunately, it took a worldwide pandemic for us all to realize this.

Going forward both of us have decided to self reflect during this stay-at-home era and assess what we really want to pour our time and energy into. We both encourage our readers to foster human connection while social distancing–and to have fun while doing so! Here are ways Mari and I made our brunch just as enjoyable as it is in person:

-We dressed up

-We each brought our own brunch bounty: mimosas (okay in Mari’s case wine), breakfast bagel sandwiches, etc. 

-We kindly asked another member of our household to capture our chat for the memories!

-We talked current events 

-We talked Old Hollywood Films

-We checked in with one another

Stay tuned for more social distancing lifestyle and fashion posts. I may be staying indoors, but I am also staying chic!

How are you making social distancing more fun? 

Keeping it Krischic,
