Our Team’s Top Work From Home Picks

March 8, 2021

WFH. The acronym for “work from home” has gone mainstream since last March. And for good reason: nearly everyone we know is doing it, whether in a den, from a corner carved out of their bedroom or at their kitchen table—and of course, via handy tools like Zoom that connect us with our colleagues virtually. The phenomenon is so widespread, we asked every member of the VITA team to select their top WFH pick. —Vita Daily

lyndi’s pick. “Open my WFH desk drawer and you’ll discover my collection of notepads and paper. Many of these are designed by my favourite stationery brand, Rifle Paper Co. Created by illustrator Anna Bond, Rifle products offer pretty, whimsical designs in pleasing colour palettes. The latest addition to my growing stash: this floral soft-cover spiral-coil Colette notebook with gold-foil accents ($20 at Indigo) is making my at-home to-do list much easier to tackle!”

vicki’s pick. “Since I’m constantly washing my hands these days, my skin’s been feeling stripped and depleted of much-needed moisture. While I can’t control the hand soaps and sanitizers provided by the businesses I support, I can stock up on the best at home. All-natural Ellie Bianca liquid hand soap ($9) is ultra-hydrating, deeply cleansing and gentle to boot. My personal fave is the citrus and tea tree scent for a natural uplift, with aloe vera for serious skin softening.”

noa’s pick. “Working from home means the temptation to dress down—waaay down—is real. The trick when it comes to WFH wear is to strike a balance between comfy and chic. This is what Vancouver designer Ogechukwu Ajibe delivers via her Oge Ajibe label (formerly Fashion Voice). Her Fancy skirt ($78), made to order with super-soft and comfortable ribbed Tencel, can be styled with jackets, tops and sweaters, or paired with a matching Desire turtleneck ($108) for a ‘dress’ look that’s equal parts profesh and pajamas.”

madison’s pick. “Working from home in a small space is not without its challenges. In an effort to keep my desk feeling neat and looking chic (hello, Italian pebbled leather!), I love this weighted wireless charging pad from Courant ($110 at SSENSE). It mitigates the need for extra wires hanging about, and makes it easy to keep all of my many devices fully charged. Très chic!”
