shoulders are the new black

4 striped dress | three wishes style

I was on the hunt for a great off-the-shoulder top recently and while I can’t seem to find one that I really like, I did come across this off-the-shoulder dress from Target (for only $30!). It was love at first sight, we’re thinking a wedding in the fall… the dress and me. ūüėČ

Anyway I wore this dress and legit did not want to take it off at the end of the day. They have it in black too and I’m seriously considering getting it, because why not? I can only find the striped one online in curvy sizing [I’ll link it below], but it’s the WHO WHAT WEAR collection at Target and if you find one I recommend trying it on and buying it. Hopefully it will bring you as much joy as it does me.

Lots of love! XO

thrown together

Whenever I have no idea what to wear I tend to gravitate towards black, it matches everything and has never let me know. I threw this look together last minute, you can’t really go wrong with black, white and a pop of maroon. Easy peasy.

impractical fashion

yellow blazer | three wishes style

Most of the time I pride myself on wearing practical clothing. However there are some exceptions, such as a great pair of 5 inch heels or a purse that only fits your lipstick.

These are moments when you have to ask yourself, “Am I actually going to wear this, or am I just going to add another item to my ever-growing collection of things I don’t wear?” I asked myself this question after I saw this box clutch at Target the other day‚Ķ I even put it down and walked away, only to turn around 10 steps later, walk back and buy it. As you can tell my will power is amazing. Put a glazed donut or a really cute purse in front of me and watch me shine. :-/

I found out that this purse not only fits one lipstick but it also fits my phone‚Ķ car keys are a different story, but I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it.

Hope you’re having a great week so far!

one striped skirt, four ways

1skirt4ways_green

I recently found this skirt at Target for less than $25. I love everything about it, including but not limited to: stripes, white and black, circle skirt, etc. Plus, because of its thick material it maintains its “circle” shape very well.

Since I’ve been kinda slacking at getting outfit pictures put up I wanted to show you guys some of the cute ways you can style this extremely versatile skirt.

As time goes on, I’m hoping to put up similar posts to this, giving you quick and easy styling inspirations. Hope you enjoy!

OUTFIT 1: An American Girl in Paris

This look reminds me of the outfit that Carrie from Sex and the City wore when she moved to Paris in the finale (see pic below). Obviously this look is much more wearable than the one Carrie wore.

OUTFIT 2: A Pattern Mixin’ Lady

You know I love to mix my patterns and this skirt is perfect for doing that. I also love the pink heels for a pop of color. I’m probably going to wear this look soon, so don’t be surprised when you see it again. ūüėČ

I love how chambray instantly dresses down a look, and for a fun contrast I threw in some sparkly earrings and teal heels.

OUTFIT 4: An American Girl in Tampa

I wore this look out last weekend in South Tampa with my lady loves (see pic below). I got lots of compliments and I think the hat really took the look over the top (in a good way).

it’s ok to match

pink skirt again | three wishes style

Do you remember the early 2000s when everything you wore had to match? For example, if you had on a purple shirt, you most certainly had on a purple necklace, purple earrings and you were carrying a purple purse …oh and don’t forget about your purple scarf belt and matching flip-flops.

Yes, things were a little too matchy-matchy back then, which is why I think we are sometimes afraid to match. (Now wearing two or three different patterns is in… it seems as though we’re headed in the opposite direction.) Certainly nobody wants to go back to matching everything, but there are ways to match where you don’t have to look like you just stepped off your high-school bus circa 2003.

Today’s outfit is a great example that a bit of matching can go a long way. Obviously my shoes, shirt and bracelet match, but nothing is overboard and I kept the rest of my look very simple. If you look closely, I also matched my pink ring to my pink skirt, but again, it’s nothing that’s too overdone. That’s the key to matching, make sure that it’s subtle and you’re good to go.

What do you guys think? Is matching ok once again?

***I would like to dedicate today’s post to scarf belts… may you rest in peace and NEVER come back in style.

lady in the front…

business in front | three wishes style

…party in the back! I was told I looked very Jackie O. in this dress today and I would tend to agree, until I turn around that is. Not sure Jackie O. ever went backless or wore strappy stilettos. This outfit looks like matching separates, but it’s actually a dress. The only issue I have is that I can’t wear a normal bra with it… so hello sticky bra… (and tan lines)!

Happy Throwback Thursday! Can you believe it’s August tomorrow? Where the hell has the year gone? business in front | three wishes stylebusiness in front | three wishes stylebusiness in front | three wishes stylebusiness in front | three wishes stylebusiness in front | three wishes stylebusiness in front | three wishes stylebusiness in front | three wishes style
