Back from New York

We had a great time in New York this past weekend. It was so much fun visiting all the different neighborhoods. We had an even better time visiting the showrooms. While there, we saw 2 new lines for the store. Stay tuned to see who we picked up for the Spring and Summer 2010 season!

Dressing for Summer weather

As the weather gets warmer, we sometimes feel our selection in warm-weather clothing is limited. We suggest keeping your outfits simple and elegant like Sienna Miller above wearing a Yoana Baraschi sundress while on the streets. At the store our current favorites are the Wren Navy Shorts with the Wren Inkblot Tee. We also heart the Twinkle Ariel Tank with skinny jeans. Ladies, for the season, the more distressed the better; and while we’re on denim, the lighter the wash, the better as well!
For footwear try flat sandals or ballet flats. Wedge sandals also go very well with summer attire. Wedges in tan leather and a statement bag can finish the outfit.
Linen trousers or a great tulip skirt with a summer blouse make up a work-appropriate outfit. If you’d like to be more creative, a sweet sundress with a cotton cardigan will also keep you cool in the office. To keep looking neat, avoid shorts and tennies and cotton shelf-bra tank tops worn by themselves. We hope you enjoy the weather and have a wonderful week!

Katie Holmes in Wren

Katie Holmes was photographed yesterday wearing a Wren dress and cardigan. We love Katie’s style, especially when she’s dressed casually and running around town with Suri. Shop our selection of Wren Spring and Summer clothing to master your casual style like Katie. Happy Friday, it’s going to be hot this weekend. Try to stay cool.

Dressing for warm weather

Anna Sui Spotted Horses Dress available at Josef Boutique, San Mateo

With the warm weather in full effect, we wanted to share some summer dressing tips to keep you cool and looking stylish. If you’re in an office, a summery skirt made of linen or cotton in khaki or navy will do the trick. We like full minis and straight pencil cuts for skirts. To complement your skirt, invest in an embroidered or floral tunic blouse and wear it tucked in or out. For more casual occasions try a sleek pair of skinny jeans and a perfectly relaxed fitting t-shirt. Embellish the casual outfit with a stack of bracelets, thread or metal, your favorite pair of sunglasses, and studded or metallic sandals. On those really hot days, your best bet is a knee skimming, thin-strap sundress or a mini sheath style dress. You can wear either dress with ankle wrap platform espadrilles – they’re our latest obsession. The outfits in this post would also make a very good mini wardrobe for a spring or summer excursion to a destination of your choice. (We’re thinking Barcelona!)

You’re so evil to me

One of our most delightful customers told us that we’re so evil to her this afternoon. It’s been a while since she was last in the shop, and after perusing all of our new Spring and Summer clothing those were the words she was so compelled to say. We heart our selection too, LP, and thanks again for shopping with us today! We’ve taken “you’re so evil to me” to mean I love all the clothes in here, but I can’t buy them all, so now I must set them free. The old saying, “if you really love [something], set it free” is so very true.

In other news, our Wren Summer 2009 collection hit the store today! It’s really amazing. We got in a 100% organic cotton tee with a golden peace sign adorning the front, a lined striped linen full mini skirt, a 100% cotton celestial embroidered cotton tank dress (see photo above), and a 100% silk sketch print dress in sunrise. Admiring the pieces will transport you to a tropical island or the French Riviera instantly! For an abbreviated mental break, stop by Josef to enjoy the new Wren Summer 09 clothing. Have a terrific weekend everyone!
