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?
Finding the perfect summer top can be a real task in itself – we want something light, airy, breezy, casual but also dressed up, and so on. Not to mention that it also needs to work with both shorts and skirts, as well as a regular pair of blue jeans for colder days. This shirred crepe top by favorite Reformation is all it takes – form-fitting without sucking in our lunch and giving off that effortless look we all aspire to. Don’t be turned off by the straps; they’re fully adjustable!
Amazon has long been a source of hidden gems, daily necessities and quirky discoveries. This week we’ve got our eyes on this mask pack by Benton. The company creates skincare products made with snail bee and this mask was made for us. Some reviewers go as far as calling it their “best mask they’ve ever tried”, while others like to use it with beauty tools such as the derma roller for enhanced effects. We look forward to reducing redness and seeing what bee venom does to our skin!
Summer is only a few days away from us, but that shouldn’t keep you from daydreaming about your next holiday. This book by Amanda Lindroth takes you on a mythical island hopping via beautifully captured photos of her 30 interior design projects featured. The designer’s client roster includes anyone that’s looking to create the ideal getaway with jaunty prints, cane seating, all wrapped in a hybrid of colonial and island influences. Get ready to mentally plan your home away from home, we guarantee you’ll love this book as much as we do!
Welcome to short suits; the summer equivalent of a regular pant suit and something that’s definitely high on our want and wish lists. We love this striped two-piece in a neutral camel tone, perfect to accessorize more frivolously with chunky gold jewellery, a pair of fiery red mules and a summer clutch. The short length, typically known as bermudas makes it just as acceptable to wear in the office as on a night out.
What’s on your wish-list?
