FALL: The summer is over, and this little blog is back. As the summer got busier this year, I was feeling like I could barely keep up with replacing sold items from the window display and changing it occasionally, never mind keep up with entries on here. But I'm back as things have started to slow a bit.
The last blog post I wrote was midweek after Memorial Day, and I was predicting a busy summer for Wish and for Newport. And oh my, was that prediction right?! I keep thinking that every person in the country must've visited this little city this summer.
It finally feels like fall around here and though I personally hate to see the warm weather and sunshine fade, I do love a change and sweaters. All the sweaters, and cashmere, and jeans and little lightweight jackets. Okay, so I guess I'm okay with fall. It's winter I'm really trying to avoid, but that's a story for another day. I just can't resist a ruffle, and this ruffled cable knit from Mango is adorably classic. Also can't get enough of this yellow-with-a-hint-of-orange chunky as all get out Free People sweater is such a winner. A fan favorite so far this fall, this fairislesque Vince turtleneck is a wool and cashmere blend that super soft, cozy and warm.
How are we feeling about shorts and rompers for fall? I'd still wear any of these outfits on the left. The lace with bell sleeves from Cynthia Steffe, would be absolutely perfect for a guest to a later fall wedding that you may have coming up, as would the camel colored romper by Karina Grimaldi.
Brown animal print for fall? Groundbreaking! (a little Miranda Priestly joke for you)
But there is something to be said about classics being classic for a reason, and we have plenty of leopard print pieces in the store for fall.

Stay tuned for a "Thanksgiving Window" in the next few weeks if you can even believe it?! I like to live in the moment and not rush things but given the state of the last couple years, you wouldn't blame me if I was already kind of looking forward to the holidays, would you?! Newport in bright white lights, the Wish window covered in stars, and glitter and most importantly festive indoor, vaccinated gatherings with loved ones. Even my Wish loved ones - there are absolutely some Wish Sip N' Shops on the horizon for the last few months of 2021.
I spend so much time styling the window in the shop and hear from all of you how much you love it. I know many of you aren't in Newport in general so you're used to enjoying our Window content on Instagram and Facebook but I always feel like they should have a more permanent place online. Hope you enjoyed it too and maybe you even find something you love!
