With spring break right around the corner, we can’t help but want to hop on the next plane to a private island. If you have seen our window, you KNOW we have a bad case of wanderlust. Whether you are heading to South Beach, Cabo or just over to the Cape, we have a few tips for any trip.
Keep It Light
When we think of a beach vaca, we think of the bare essentials. No frills, no fuss, just relaxation and comfort. Our wardrobe consists of tunics & bathing suits by day and shift dresses by night. These are our beach essentials and ALL can be found at Wish right now!
We pack everything into our MINE bag, which actually is our go-to bag for ANY situation. What’s in our MINE bag? Only our favorite beach necessities.
Getaways are the perfect time to catch up on some guilty pleasure reading, whether you are on the plane or lounging on the beach. These are our favorite books of the moment:
Rules of Civility (Amor Towles): High society in New York City. Think Great Gatsby meets Sex and the City.
The Fault in Our Stars (John Green): An inspiring story about Hazel and her journey through cancer. Definitely a must read before the movie comes out!
The Girls’ Guide to Hunting and Fishing (Melissa Bank): An oldie but a goodie. Don’t be fooled by the name, this is more of a walk through the in’s and out’s of love and relationships.
Mrs. Kennedy & Me (Clint Hill): An inside look at one of our fashion idols as told by her personal Secret Service agent. You know what happens at the end of the story, but this perspective makes it so much more real.
Where are you headed? If you vaca Wish style, tag us for a chance to be featured!
We can’t believe it has already been a year. It is hard to put into words all of the emotions we are feeling right now. We have so much Boston pride and love this city so much! The Wish girls will be out in full force cheering on our friends, family, and clients who are running in this years Boston Marathon. We could not be more proud of this years runners!

For all the spectators out there, we found this Boston Magazine article to be the best and the most comprehensive for anyone attending this years event.
You may see one of us on the sidelines wearing this outfit below. We want to show our blue and yellow spirit! Have a good rest of your weekend. See you MONDAY! #BostonStrong
We are so happy that Spring is in full swing! Now that winter is over, we are coveting colorful clothing to wear for all of our upcoming events and family gatherings in April and May! If you are someone who is celebrating Easter, we have curated some of our favorite looks for your day.
For those of you who are lucky enough to fly down to Florida for Easter (or for April vacation) we think these Cynthia Steffe are the perfect for a dressed up brunch with family and friends!
If you are staying in Boston and heading out for fancier meal on the town, we absolutely love these frocks above! The first two are other Cynthia Steffe (and by the way are so much prettier in person). The navy dress on the right is from our latest Susana Monaco delivery. We know this will turn into our go-to dress this summer!
Many of us will be enjoying a low-key day with our families and will partake in an Easter Egg hunt! For a more casual look we suggest a combination of any of these styles: 1.White+Warren cotton blend sweater 2.Caylpso cardi 3.Superga sneakers 4.Ag Stilts in sateen 5.Caylpso linen tee 6. White+Warren cashmere cardi
What do you think of these looks? Where are you heading for brunch next weekend? Let us know! See you soon 🙂
The internet just GETS us, you know? We want to start April off with our favorite videos right this minute. Ones we think you should check out. Do you have a song, funny pet video or touching moment you think we should check out? Send it our way!!
Like, actually LOVE. This is what we have always wanted to put into words but have never known how to phrase properly.
Tough day? Need a smile? A certain mom sent us this Puppy Cam link to watch a litter of puppies who will grow up to be guide dogs. Try not to smile while you watch these cuties. We’re not going to lie, we sometimes keep it open on our computer just to check on them throughout the day!
We are SO EXCITED that SPRING is finally in the air! Hello Redsox games, picnics in The Common, and rooftop barbecues! It is the perfect time to pull out our favorite color combination of the moment: Navy & Coral. There are so many ways to pull off this amazing color duo. Here are some staff pics of items we currently have in stock at Wish:
This Joie blazer paired with this fabulous Calypso Tee can take you from work to dinner. We suggest pairing it with our tAG Stilt Roll up for a casual night out.
We have quite a few options to choose from! This Splendidtweed jacket is the perfect update to your closet. Add a pop of coral color with our new line of fun clutches by Urban Expressions. Another option is pairing this fun Equipment sweater with our latest AG Jeans Absolute Leggings. We cannot get enough of these two colors! Now tell us what is your go-to color combo for Spring? TGIF!
Some might call it “surfing the web” but we like to refer to it as “research”. Either way, we try to find time each week to browse our favorite blogs. It’s become second nature to us to find celebs wearing Wish’s clothes (we almost ALWAYS do!), but we also like to read about the latest trends in other big cities. So we made a list of our top 4 favorite bloggers!
Emily is honest & inspiring. Like Lauren Conrad, but lower key. We love catching her wearing Wish brands (Velvet, Splendid!) but love reading the blog for food & décor ideas… Olympic Cocktail inspired drinks, anyone?
Blair is gorgeous and so are her pictures. We love admiring her bold style choices… I mean, the girl rocks Current/Elliott leather skinnies with Converses one day and a Tibi skirt with Valentino pumps and a Madewell sweatshirt the next. Plus we are total fan girls of her hair.
We have been following Carly on her blog for years now and have really seen it take off. Just this winter, she took a trip to Ireland with Barbour to tour their factory… WHAT?! Her preppy style is effortless and her puppy, Teddy, is the cutest thing we’ve ever laid eyes on.
This blog is like a better version of Pinterest. We drool over the home décor, cry/take notes at the weddings and proposals and constantly find new fashion icons in the Inspired By section. This is the ultimate answer for those looking to majorly procrastinate.
We are always keeping our eye out for new blogs!! Is there a blog you love that we missed? Let us know, we’d love to check it out (but actually).
We now have a little more spring in our step thanks to the fact we have reordered Superga Sneakers in pretty new colors for Spring and Summer!
These kicks are back by popular demand after selling so fast during our fall and pre-fall season. They are extremely comfortable and chic all at the same time! Not only do the Wish ladies swear by this footwear for getting around the city, these celebrities below agree too!
Let us know if you want us to give you a call or send you an email when these arrive in store at 617-227-4441. Our first delivery will be blue and a grey sage! We don’t want you to miss out on your size and color preference!
Whether fresh out of college or married for 30 years, date nights are crucial for any functional relationship. But where to go? You want something different but relaxing and insanely good. As major foodies, trust us when we say that these places are tried and true for us… we can’t get enough.
• Puritan & Co. (Cambridge):
From the pork shoulder to charred octopus with pesto to rye gnocci , this place truly is jawdropping. It is incredibly modern, but you will feel SO cool sitting in there. AND they just recently acquired their full liquor license-think hot cocoa with chartreuse or hot mulled wine. Friend them on Facebook to score $1 Oysters, sign up for Fish & Game Night and drool over their Brunch specials. We dare you to try to have just 1 of their sea salt rolls. Inside tip- ask to sit at the chef’s table… you’ll thank us later.
• Tip Tap Room (Beacon Hill)
Make your man’s day and take him to a place that is based around meat & beer. This place is perfect for a more social date night. All kinds of tips: steak, chicken, turkey, antelope. And an ever changing, never ending selection of beers. A reservation is 100% necessary, but totally worth it (especially if you can score a table in Peter’s section). The salads are phenomenal, but so is the rock shrimp appetizer and pecan pie with cinnamon ice cream!!
• Butcher Shop (South End)
While getting a table at a reasonable hour here is tough, finding something amazing to eat is not. World-renowned chef Barbara Lynch does it again, with food you would never think to order at dinner (hot dog, anyone?) and pairs it with an upscale modern vibe. The French/Italian menu is constantly changing but the charcuterie and wine is always top notch. Do your tummy a favor though, and have your man face the huge cooler of meat.
• Met (Back Bay)
We are drooling at just the thought of The Met at Back Bay. Holy crispy brussel sprouts. The ham and cheese bar? YUM. This place is perfect for those who prefer regular comfort food, although every item here has a bit of a twist. Finish eating early so you can grab a huge glass of wine in the ever so romantic Library! We’re not gonna lie… Sunday mornings you MIGHT catch us in there, reading a book, mimosa in hand.
Zippers are back in a VERY big way this year! Whether it is on the back of your dress, or accented on a bag, this style is sticking around for Spring, Summer & Fall!
Our Paige Jeans in the Edgemont style are not only one of our favorites, but a celeb pick as well!
One other take on this edgier look is on our shelves in the form of Linea Pelle leather handbags.
These buttery totes come with two tone zippers. This makes it so easy to pair with all of your hardware and accessories! If any of you have purchased other version of Linea Pelle bags before, you know how great the quality is and how pretty and luxe they look in person.
Come visit us soon and let you us know what you think of this zipper trend! xoxo
It isn’t easy being green…but it is easy to find ways to celebrate the holiday. We are sharing some of our favorite things about today. And let us take this moment to be cliché and say that we feel very LUCKY to have you reading our blog!! xoxo
The Sparkling Shamrock
If an Irish Car Bomb is a little too… Irish, and the thought of drinking green beer grosses you out, we’ve found the easiest, classiest, most perfect solution. Taryn from Formal Fringe made it as easy as pouring a glass full of your favorite bubbly and top it with a little Midouri (Japanese melon liqueur) and you’re all set!! Don’t leave the kids out—there’s nothing wrong with a little green food coloring mixed with sparkling cider! GENIUS. Full Recipe here
Thin Mint Puppy Chow
There are few things we won’t do for a Thin Mint. So when we found this idea from Shugary Sweets, we were all about it. Whatever you called it as a kid: Puppy Chow, Trash or Muddy Buddies, you surely have tried this… but did you ever put this spin on it? Trade the milk chocolate for MINT chocolate and add minty m&m’s and you’ve got yourself the best indulgence ever. Full Recipe here
Pot of Gold Irish Potato Soup
If you weren’t hungry before, you will be after you see this. Clearly, the Irish have no concern about calories, so who are we to turn this down? Plus the little clover on top of the bowl is just adorable. While it may be a little time consuming, it sure does look worth it!! Full Recipe here
DVF + Green
Although Diane is Belgian born, she sure does know how to make green look GOOD. Here are our favorite DVF Irish-themed pieces!!
We know that SPRING must be right around the corner now that our cropped DENIM has arrived! We have a few options in store right now such as the Stilt Sateen Crop in black or white, the Stilt Roll-up which is a customer favorite year after year, and the NEW Tomboy Crop which is a relaxed slim boyfriend jean that also looks great rolled up!
Another fabulous option is the Legging Ankle in a distressed look. One of our fashion icons, Olivia Palermo, rocks this look by AG a few different ways.
We went around the store gathering our favorite items to pair with these AG Legging ankle jeans and here what we came up with this week: Our Joie two pocket blouse, an Annabel Ingall tote in String, and delicate layers of NYLA STAR gold jewelry.
Now tell us, what crop style is your favorite? Have a great day! xoxo
