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?
All we want this summer is that one bold red piece that will stand out amongst all the whites. Whether it’s a dress, shorts or a set of skirt and top, we love to turn to Free People to find what we’re looking for. This wrapped midi skirt comes in a whole variety of colors, but we’ve definitely got our eyes on this red number. Wear it as styled in the picture or opt for a more elevated look with a feminine blouse or white button down.
This brand has been our go-to for serums since we first came across it a few years ago. Fast forward to today and this new whipped cream blended with African oils to get your skin the nourishment it needs. Its ingredients are meant to restore your skin barrier, and combat signs of anti-aging with its plant ceramide complex, omega acids and much more. Give it a try after a long day of lounging in the sun, and we guarantee it’s all you’ll need to feel refreshed.
You should know by now how obsessed we are with business books. From autobiographies to legendary takedowns in Silicon Valley and Wall Street, there’s nothing we’ll turn away from. This week we’re turning towards the behaviours of buying, what consumers go through and more importantly how companies advertise their products to make sure we buy them. If you’re curious about this process as much as we are, get your hands on Martin Lindstrom’s Buyology to get mind blown!
If you caught up on last week’s Spotlight On feature, you’ll know we’re huge fans of mini summer dresses we can wear with a pair of white sneakers, as well as block heeled sandals. Shortly after publishing the story, we discovered With Jéan, the latest Aussie brand we want to wear until Labor Day. While we love the whole collection, we have a soft spot for high collars and a mini cut, and this dress does it for us!
What’s on your wish-list?
