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?
One of the wardrobe essentials we like to stock up on the most is 100% a white button down. Whether it’s a crisp shirt or satin blouse, it’s our go-to top option for immediately looking dressed up without thinking through a plethora of outfits. This one by essentials master Everlane is the perfect balance between work meeting and weekend relaxation. Wear yours half-tucked into your jeans as styled below, or fully tucked into a pencil or midi skirt.
The freezing cold outside and the warm temperatures inside call for some major hydrating and moisturizing on our ends. This balancing moisturizer by Algenist has an added in SPF15 because of the occasional sunshine rays, and the prebiotic formula which stems from the brand’s focus on using microalgae, which is high in alguronic acid makes this the perfect cream to use to restore, balance out and repair any damaged skin. Try it for yourself!
After getting through I Like You Just The Way I Am in a mere day and a half, you can imagine our excitement when we came across Jenny Mollen’s second book, Live Fast Die Young (third one in the works!). The insanely talented author continues to depict small snippets of her life in the most raw, humorous and enjoyable way possible. We spent a good portion of this Sunday getting through the first half of this book and the laughing out loud is no joke. Join the humor by getting your hands on it too!
Spring’s denim trends are looking a tad different to last year’s, and we’re not entirely mad about it. As long as they don’t include low-waisted flares, or as a matter of fact anything low-rise, we’re on board. Ladies, let us introduce you to the most comfortable and soft piece of denim currently available. And what’s not to love? There’s a high-rise situation, mixed with a flared and a tad cropped cut and all that blended into a classic light blue jean wash. They also come in a crème yellow, perfect for warmer weather!
What’s on your wish-list?
