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?
Though it still feels quite chilly and cold outside, that didn’t stop the influx of wedding invitations reaching our doorstep. For the first destination wedding coming up in July, we’re eyeing the Nikita dress by Reformation in this blue and white print. It’s perfect for the night before celebration, long enough to keep mosquitoes at bay and flirty enough at the top with a gorgeous bustier cut and shoulder straps. If a print isn’t your style, reach for the plain black or blue!
Highlighting our eye area without creating unwanted creases or overshadowing colors is one of our favorite looks, especially during warmer weather. We recently discovered the shimmer by Supergoop, and are glad to say we found a match. Not only does it come with much needed SPF, it’s a natural look with a hint of shimmer, perfect to get a just woke up like this look. This one is made without any synthetic fragrances and parabens, and is infused with rose, chamomile and sunflower. Just what the doctor ordered and what we need!
Ever since we listened to the founder of Patagonia, Yvon Chouinard speak on one of our favorite podcasts, How I Built This, we grew more and more intrigued in his company. Thankfully, we came across Let My People Go Surfing which was published in 2016 and is a memoir by Chouinard himself. A much awaited read, we’re excited to dive into the book of one of the most respected, acclaimed and successful businessmen out there.
Heritage bags and investment pieces are great to collect as they’ll last a lifetime, but more often than not, our bank account balance doesn’t align with our needs and wishes. Which is why we love to indulge in trendy yet stylish pieces to add to our everyday looks. Topshop does a great job with offering creative pieces that do the job and are so easy to wear now that the sun is out. We love this top handle bag and the wooden beads, giving us a little edge and extra accessories without rumbling through our entire jewelry box. The bag also comes in a variety of colors, so take your pick!
