As we all adjust to #stayhome orders and life in quarantine, we’re checking in with TS Alum to learn more about what their life in lockdown is like.
Olivia Bannock has appeared on The Strategy multiple times, and is a style icon to many TS team members. Her Instagram is envy inducing and her wardrobe looks like pulls from Vogue’s fashion closet. We just had to know how she was staying sane and inspired amid quarantine.
Where are you quarantining?
Are you quarantining with anyone?
FRIENDS! Seven of us left for a four day weekend…It’s been 8 weeks.
What does an average day look like, for you now?
We try to normalize everything as much as possible. Wake up, exercise, work 9am-6pm. At night, we do a large group dinner. It’s the best part of the day.
What is a typical outfit you’re rocking now while you’re staying home?
For my Zoom meetings, I try to put on something ‘nice’, like a cute sweater (I don’t have many with me). Generally, it’s a track suit from Cotton Citizen or Colourful Standard.
What can you absolutely not live without during this time?
The most important app fro me has been Zoom, to stay connected to my friends and family who are in Canada, while I’m in the US.
For you, what is the best part of quarantine, and what is the worst part?
I don’t know if there is a ‘best’ part of quarantine, however, being with friends has been such a privilege. I am so grateful to our hosts for keeping us out of the city.
How are you keeping yourself busy?
Generally, finding ways to be creative, such as a needle point kit I found on Etsy, cooking fun meals, and lots of puzzles and games.
How are you staying inspired?
I’m finding new ways to use my social media while trying to connect more with my audience. I’m getting inspired by my peers this way.
