I'm not leaving the house all that much these days, but when I do, I've got an updated mantra:
"Wallet, keys, phone, mask."
Since becoming as important on the daily as underwear, and arguably more important than a bra, I've acquired quite the selection, most often because I've spotted a celeb wearing one that just, well, speaks to me. One of the first ones I hunted down? The rad, hand-sewn masks from Ahida Correalle.
Spotted on everyone from Emma Roberts to Whitney Port, these made in LA denim beauties feature some very on-trend sentiments and marry that small batch, Etsy-esque aesthetic with fashion-forward statement-making. I may continue to covet the handbag that costs as much as a mortgage payment, but it's the face covering that really shines, anyway. And at $30 bucks each, I might even buy a second.
Baby bump + '90s frock + face mask = pandemic chic and we are totally here for it, Emma.

Remember when we used to say goodbye with innocuous parting words like, "see you later!" and "take care!" Well, it's 2020—hugs are out and pleas for health and safety are in.
I can't be the only one who sees masks as a great way to avoid people when you just don't have time for small talk. Fittingly, this is my go-to phrase when I inevitably get caught pretending I don't notice someone.
Sometimes you don't want to say anything at all. This one's for all the stylishly understated mamas out there. Solidarity, sisters.
