What WWW Staffers Are Reading, Eating, Watching, and Wearing This Weekend
For many of us, this weekend is the fourth (or fifth!) in a row where we’ve stayed home in an effort to flatten the curve and support the essential workers in our communities. I don’t know about you, but during this time, I’ve found myself looking forward to weekdays more than the weekends simply because they involve more structure, a hearty to-do list, and a sense of accomplishment at the end of the day. That said, all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, so I’m heading into the upcoming two days with the goal of accomplishing tasks that keep me indoors but away from my computer keyboard. If you can, I hope you are too.
Just in case you need a dose of inspiration or direction to set you on your path to the weekend, below you’ll find the honest-to-goodness plans of Who What Wear staffers from coast to coast. Yes, we’re back for the second week in a row highlighting what they’re watching, reading, eating, and of course, wearing—plus that 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 personally fulfilling.
Keep scrolling to see Who What Wear’s weekend plans, and then share yours by tagging @whowhatwear on your Instagram post. We look forward to seeing and sharing how everyone is continuing to enjoy their time in the great indoors!
