black jean life

1 red trench copy

I wore this outfit a couple of weeks ago, back when I was wearing black jeans just about everyday. Jimmy (my fella) actually commented that he hadn’t seen me in anything else in quite a while. After that I realized I needed to get my shit together, I mean if he was noticing, it had to be bad. I was at least wearing different tops, I deserve some credit for that. Black jeans and a blouse, black jeans and a sweater and black jeans and a dress (this top I’m wearing is actually a dress that’s too short), all completely different outfits, no?!

But seriously, I was glad he said something because I needed a little kick in the butt… I’m getting my body in shape and wardrobe is next. It’s okay to have off days months, but I’m coming back, right after I show this outfit with black jeans. ūüėČ

jumpsuit for joy

1 jumpsuit | three wishes style

I have been on the lookout for a jumpsuit for quite some time now and I finally found one!!

I feel like it took be so long because I couldn’t find one that looked right on my body type. In case you’ve been interested in jumpsuits or rompers and haven’t found one you like, the key is all about fit. The only people “most” jumpsuits look good on are women who are very slim everywhere. Majority of them hit us at the worst part of our bodies, our hips! That’s why the key to making them look good on your body is to make sure that the center seam hits you at your natural waist like the one I found here. For most women their natural waist is the smallest part of their body so it’s important to emphasis, because it will make you look smaller and your legs look longer. (Two important factors for me!)

Hope this helps! I know once I figured out the problem was the jumpsuit and not me it became easier to find what I wanted. XO

classy crop

2 black and red | three wishes style

Confession: I’m not the body size I would like to be at the moment (still working on those extra Xmas pounds). Another confession: I’m almost 30 years old (Ekkkk!).

That all being said… you would think I would steer clear from the crop top trend, but obviously you can tell that’s not the case. I’m saying all this because no matter how old or self-conscious we are, we all should feel confident enough to wear whatever the hell we want. I never really knew until today, but I think this may be the best way for me personally to wear the crop top trend. Simple all-black outfit, red blazer and flats, I like flats so it doesn’t look like I’m trying to hard and the blazer helps me to stay classy, or at least as classy as I can be. ūüėČ

Stay fabulous (& confident) my loves!

style steal | tulle and chambray

1 cream midi | three wishes style

There are a few reasons why I have failed to post more often lately. The first reason is my work has been super busy giving me no time for a lunch break, let alone time to take outfit pictures. The second reason is money, I have been super tight on money lately meaning no money to shop for new items, plus I put my LeTote subscription on hold for while. The last reason is I have simply run out of good outfit ideas {don’t judge me!}. To be honest this happens every few months or so, I go through a lull and have no desire to try to create anything new with my “boring” old clothes.

So this brings me to the point of today’s post, I’m going to start a new series on the blog called “Style Steals” (I’ve already started my board on Pinterest). I will take inspiration from other style bloggers and do my best to recreate the looks on here with items that I already own. Obviously I’m going to try to put my spin on the outfits but I’m sure you all get the idea. Hopefully this will help me start to look at my closet with more creativity and pull me out of my style lull.

Hope you enjoy! XO
