What WWW Staffers Are Reading, Eating, Watching, and Wearing This Weekend

In times of crisis, simple things we use to look forward to can seem bleak, uninspiring, or like one more obstacle on the road to the finish line. In an effort to keep COVID-19 infections at bay, people across the United States and around the world have been sheltering in place and cities have been on pause—and will continue to be for as long as it takes to get this pandemic under control. So while social distancing is 100% essential, we’d be kidding ourselves if we didn’t admit that the days have gotten a bit monotonous. 

Personally, after three weeks spent inside my own four walls, I greeted my colleague Michelle on Slack with a “Happy whatever day it is!” in an attempt at levity, while also acknowledging the reality that there really isn’t much of a difference between what we see, do, or wear Monday through Friday right now. So in an effort to make this weekend actually feel like a real weekend, everyone at Who What Wear took a moment to pause, reflect, and plan with intention.

Below you’ll find the honest-to-goodness plans of Who What Wear staffers from coast to coast, highlighting what they’re watching, reading, eating, and of course, wearing—hey, we’ve been working on some fire WFH ‘fits that look just as good on the weekend—plus a sharable graphic for you to customize and post on Instagram Stories. We hope you’ll be inspired to try something new, support your favorite small business, or FaceTime a friend to help make this weekend count.
