Anyone else missing adventures? Right now, many of us are sitting on Pinterest dreaming of roaming the streets of Italy or sitting in a cafe in Paris, only to immediately return to our lives stuck at home. Of course, not everyone has the means to fly across the ocean to Europe and spend their days eating croissants anyway, so spending time simply staring at beautiful photos of abroad is often a daily reality—even when the world is at its most normal. What most of us have the opportunity to do though, is treat ourselves to a little mug or pillow that instantly transports us to France. In a time when we can’t leave our homes, the Clare V. edit at Anthropologie has arrived to make it at least feel like we’re anywhere other than our couches.
From French-inspired notecards that are an ideal snail mail situation to little mugs that will allow you to imagine you’re sitting in a French bistro, this magical collection is full of swoon-worthy pieces that might just add a little brightness to your day. After all, if we’re all stuck at home, the least we can do is make our homes as comfortable as possible. Even though for many of us, finances aren’t at their highest, there are little things that can potentially bring some joy to your home office—or dining room table, or living room couch, or bedroom. Wherever you’ve been spending your time at home, lighting an aromatic candle or sitting in the backyard on a fun and colorful towel can help improve your mood and transport you to another world where you get to explore beautiful foreign places.
While we’re all sitting at home, traveling has to be a state of mind. Treating yourself to a little something that helps move that along is just as much a form of self care as taking a bubble bath is. Do whatever makes you feel most comfortable during these unprecedented times. If that means watching TV for three days straight, that’s chill. If it means shopping this Clare V. for Anthropologie collection, that’s also chill. There are no rules, baby—other than, like, staying inside.
Here at Unruly, we’re committed to featuring plus-size pieces we genuinely love and want to share with you.
