Even during a pandemic, it's ok to do some of the things that make you happy.
We reopened Over the Top for in-person shopping in mid June. We're still only open for private appointments but I do allow the occasional walk in. My loyal customers have been so wonderful, coming in to shop and to enjoy themselves. It seems a majority of us have the same mantra right now, "I don't need anything. Where am I going anyway? But buying something new feels so good and like a little bit of normal life."
I compliment those customers for doing something that not only seems normal but makes them feel good. Social distancing, home confinement, missed events and special occasions have been everyone's reality for the past months and may be our reality for quite some time. But now that it's summer and restaurants can serve us outside and we're allowed a bit of time with others, it's nice to get out of our sweats and into something fun, cute, feminine and fresh.
My favorite summer clothing is an easy dress and a pair of pretty sandals. I'm wearing my new Autumn Cashmere tie dye dress a lot, and lots of LoveShackFancy pretty blouses with skirts. Lisa Todd tees are adorable this season and we have so much color everywhere. No one makes tie dye like the Californians and LovetanJane is in the store to prove it.
Don't feel guilty that you're enjoying something. Just look at the card my husband gave me not so long ago when I was a bit down in the dumps..."The World is Not Ending and everyone needs a nice new sweater". So true.
