Leather Weather

Plaid is not the only hot trend of Fall 2014. Leather is back and here to stay! All of our designers from Velvet to Rebecca Taylor, Splendid to  Tibi, and even Three Dot are showing styles this fall incorporating this trend.

Leather WeatherIf you are looking for a bold look, Velvet makes an incredible Vegan leather collection. It looks and feels so real without the shininess and lack of texture that you will find by many other brands. The Zip Jacket and Sheath Cut Out Dress (shown above) are gorgeous options that will go the distance this fall and winter.

 

Leather AccentsFor a more subtle way to incorporate this trend into your wardrobe this season try Splendid’s tee with a faux leather collar. It pairs back perfectly with AG Jeans or your favorite cords. Three Dot also has the perfect ponte knit legging with a faux leather strip running down each side. All you need to do is throw on some cozy cashmere and boots and you are out the door looking chic and feeling comfortable.

All these styles are currently available at Wish! It’s time to embrace the chill and fall in love with this season’s best looks! xoxo

It is officially starting to feel like fall! We have lived in our nautical stripes all summer long, and now that it is cooler another stripe has made a big comeback: PLAID.

Plaid Wish

This style will be our “go-to” look paired with our favorite leggings or AG jeans this season.When the temperature drops more we will layer it under our favorite cashmere sweater. Every single one of our brands has incorporated this reinvented trend into their fall collections. Above we have listed our favorite plaid pieces from Velvet, Joie, and Equipment! Pumpkin spice latte anyone?

Get Your Head In The Game

Happy official summer!!! We are loving this sunshine, but the heatwave is really reminding us that we need to protect our skin so that we can have plenty of long, hot summers ahead of us. We just got in a new delivery of our favorite Hat Attacks and whether we are dressed up or dressed down, you will always find one of these on our pretty little heads!

Hats

While hats do a great job at protecting the scalp and face, we like to take it a step further just in case. These are our MUST HAVE sunscreens and sunglasses of the moment.

Sun

 

1. DVF Zoe Chainlink Oversized Glasses: DVF has done it again. We love the size and shape of these beauties!

2. Neutrogena Beach Defense: This little pocket sized sunscreen works in a BIG way. The stick glides over your face, offering you 50+ SPF.

3. Ray Ban Aviator Flash Lenses: We can not get over these glasses. The bright pop of color is perfect for summer and works perfectly even with a white tee and your favorite AG jeans!!

4. Loreal Advanced Suncare Silky Sheer BB Face Lotion: Not only does this lotion smell yummy, but it works as an BB Cream does, giving you a smooth complexion while giving you 50+ SPF.

 

What are your must haves for protecting your head in this hot, hot heat?

Staycation

We all need a break, especially in the summer. The city starts to empty out, but we have found ourselves stuck, with work or children or hectic schedules preventing us from a getaway. But who says we need to actually go anywhere to have a little fun? We are sharing some of our FAVORITE getaway spots and activities with YOU, along with a few Wish items to help complete your great escape!

1. Summer time and the living is EASY. Eat outside, kick your shoes off, stay awhile!! Lay out your Buji Baja beach throw and people watch in Public Garden. We are also huge fans of Central Bottle, where $75 gets you a picnic basket full of charcuterie and wine or beer!

2. Craving a little Vitamin D but have no time to drive to the Cape? We like to sneak away to Carson Beach to take a dip and play a little bocce. INSIDER TIP: The Tasty Burger nearby will deliver right to your towel…. SHH

3. Our parents taught us to expand our cultural horizons in the summer so our brains don’t turn to mush. So we are always seeking out a good festival, where learning and fun can happen together… who knew? This summer, you can definitely find us at Chefs in Shorts (June 20th in Seaport), WGBH Craft Beer Festival (July 12th in Brighton) and the August Moon Festival (August 10th in Chinatown).

4. Is there anything better than a cool dip on a hot summer day? We love hanging out on the Rooftop at Revere Hotel, where the swimming is indoors but the dining is outdoors. We also love the evening atmosphere at The Colonnade, where you can swim until midnight on the weekends!!

Easy Breezy Summer Days

Our summer style can be defined as easy and chic. We love being able to just throw something on as we are walking out the door and still looking gorgeous. And, more often than not, we find ourselves gravitating towards our Joie pieces. This summer, Joie is doing a lot of flowy, breezy pieces with blues and stripes. These are some of our favorites that just arrived at Wish TODAY!   1   2   lobster   -R.Mersiowsky

Going Green

Green in the Garden

The grass is certainly greener  just about everywhere now that Spring is here! Just take a walk through the Public Garden and you will see the most beautiful shades of green! It just so happens that some of our favorite items at Wish currently share this color pallet. Anywhere from Mint to Sage we are obsessed with this seasonally appropriate hue.
