cold shoulder

3 cold shoulder_three wishes style

I mentioned the “cold-shoulder” trend last summer and am just now getting the chance to try it out. To be honest, my shoulders actually get cold while wearing this top, go figure. Anyway… I think it’s a fun trend and I’m enjoying it.

About this look… I wore the outfit on “44 on the Town” (a weekly talk show that I appear on in Tampa Bay), and let me tell you it looks better in still images than on camera, especially when seated. I was cursing myself for wearing it after I saw the footage. However when I see it here, I love it. Do things like that happen to you? You think you look amazing when you leave the house, but then catch a glimpse of your reflection in a glass window and it’s not good. Well the camera was my glass window today and the worst part… I was talking about spring fashion trends. Damn it… lol… at least I have pictures to prove it looks better standing up. ūüėČ

What do you think?! Yay or nay on this look?2 cold shoulder_three wishes style5 cold shoulder_three wishes style6 cold shoulder_three wishes style7 cold shoulder_three wishes style

obsessed with… ponytails

43windowpane | three wishes style

Lately I can’t seem to get enough of ponytails, my hair is actually in a ponytail as I’m typing this. Throwing your hair into a ponytail was once thought of as being lazy or not taking the time to do your hair, but in all actuality a ponytail is now considered just another accessory.

Take a look below at some of my favorite style bloggers rocking the “pony” trend!

a boring outfit

flannel love | three wishes style

While standing in the mirror this morning, this outfit looked a little plain, but I’ve recently realized that the easiest way for me to jazz up an otherwise boring outfit is to tie a flannel shirt around my waist.

This got me thinking… before I started blogging my looks, I would deal with a plain outfit every now and then, but now I am constantly trying to push myself to make my outfits more interesting. It’s something you can also do whether you are a blogger or not, you don’t have to settle for a boring outfit. Most of the time it’s easy… you can add a bold lipstick, a jacket/blazer, a colored purse, or even a cool hairstyle to enhance your outfits. (Accessories such as a statement necklaces, sparkly earrings and sunglasses also work, but those are no-brainers.)

So the next time you are standing in the mirror, don’t give up, just get creative… and never wear a boring outfit again.

a new do… (with a bang!)

floral dress + bangs | three wishes style

For the first time in what seems like a really long time, I took a chance and decided to get a new hairstyle… and not just any hairstyle, I wanted bangs.¬† So after photoshopping a picture of Jennifer Garner’s bangs on to my face (true story), I realized it was time to go for it!

I booked an appointment the day after I decided to do it, giving myself very little time to change my mind. Even the stylist was afraid to cut them too short… I ended up having to trim them even shorter after I left the salon and may have to a bit more.

I think they have a slightly retro (Jessica Day, New Girl) vibe and look pretty great combined with a classic red lip, which is very important to me. All-in-all I like it and I’m happy to finally have a new look and can’t wait to find fun ways to style my new do.

What do you guys think?

new york in tampa

NY tee + midi skirt | three wishes style

I used to have big dreams to move to New York City. I always wanted to live the Carrie Bradshaw lifestyle (what girl doesn’t?). I used to dream about the day I would be able throw on my stylish outfits, wander through the streets of NYC, shop in cute boutiques, peruse the museums and of course search for my Mr. Big.

Fortunately and unfortunately this is not my life… I already have my Mr. Big and I can wear all my stylish outfits right here on the streets of Tampa… plus I don’t have to deal with snow or crazy cab drivers. And let’s face it, if I had to walk everywhere I would NEVER wear heels.

So for now… I’ll just wear New York tees, continue to watch Sex and the City on DVD and call it a day!

chambray & jeans

Jean on jean is just so simple, it’s becoming one of my favorite go-to looks. I’m still groggy from the 3-day weekend so I’ll keep this short.

Happy Tuesday!

transitioning into fall

Boyfriend jeans | three wishes style

It’s not officially fall and honestly in Florida it won’t start to feel like fall until we are well into November, but lately my fashion is starting to have that fall vibe and I can’t say that I’m mad about it.

Right now is the perfect time to throw on some boyfriend jeans and a tank top. Speaking of boyfriend jeans, I just got these at Target and they were 40% off, actually all of their jeans are 40% right now, meaning they’re between $17-$25. Run, don’t walk to your nearest Target!

I’m usually not a fan of Target jeans, but I got these and one other pair and I really like the way that they fit. I got mine in a size 6 and they are a little loose (but I like them that way), also Target runs a little large so I recommend getting them true to size.

Hopefully you’re having a good week so far… it’s flying by!

{This is my hair and not a headband… and it’s pretty simple to achieve. Simply braid two sections of your hair on each side by your ears (hold your hands above your ears and braid upwards). Then pull the braids over the side of your head and attach them with bobby pins. Voila it’s a hair-made headband.}
