Nothing exudes the start of a new season and quarter than a brand-new column – which brings us to the here and now, fellow readers! We’re excited to announce the first edition of Want, Need, Read, Wear – the weekly feature will encompass the top pick from our team for each category. WANT is a current must-have and the kind of product which when we decide to ‘sleep on it’ makes an appearance in our dreams and is one of the first things that cross our minds when we sip that first cup of coffee in the morning. NEED is as you may assume a pure necessity – whether it’s that *one* it bag or accessory we’re spotting everywhere or the latest Amazon buy we plan to reorder. READ isn’t limited to a book, (although we’ve got a handful of best-sellers we’re dying to share with you) it can be a recent article we’ve bookmarked or the latest newsletter we subscribed to and read on our way to work. Lastly, WEAR will introduce solely fashion purchases, including but not limited to that one pair of white trousers we must add to our summer collection or those just under $10 heart shaped sunglasses available on Amazon Prime, and happen to be a fraction of the original YSL pair (because you know we love a bargain!).Let’s jump right into it, shall we?
2 Things that shouldn’t surprise you about The Weekly Cut team by now, one we love to travel and two we love a good high street haul. Luckily for us, upon browsing through the section of new arrivals on none other than Swedish retailer H&M, we promptly clicked ‘add to cart’ to no less than 10 pieces that are guaranteed to make an appearance in not one, but surely all long weekends and summer holidays planned in the next couple weeks. This dress and straw hat (alternative by Jacquemus here) will be a priority for our getaway this weekend, and we can’t wear to share some shots!
It must come to no surprise to you that every dermatologist in the country and beauty news outlet will tell you to never leave the house without sunscreen – no matter sun or not! However, it took a lot of trial and run before we finally came across a moisturizer that didn’t feel sticky, oily or wouldn’t match our skin tone, but we did and we it’s our daily go-to before getting anywhere. Try Intellishade® Original for yourself here, and let us know what you’ve been using as SPF in the comments below!
In celebration of women, independence as well as the surge in marriages, because who here doesn’t have a summer filled with weddings, we recommend All The Single Ladies by Rebecca Traister in this week’s Must Read. This well-researched, highly informative and powerful book is guaranteed to speak to you, if like many other women, you aren’t yet binded in a marriage and are enjoying your independence. This review by the NY Times states, “when single women have outspokenly opposed powerful men, their marital status has made them targets for judgment”, and we could not agree more with the rest of Traister’s affirmations and explorations.
Last week, we decided to shine spotlight on one of our go-to spring/summer footwear styles, the backless mules, slides, sling backs and espadrilles. Though we don’t usually play favorites, there’s a clear winner when it comes to levels of comfort, creativity and price point. We love this pair of embroidered slides, not to mention it’s a favorite amongst street style stars such as Olivia Palermo.
What’s on your wish-list?
