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!

I’ve been a fan of Sara Bareilles for a while now so when I heard that she did a cover of Sia’s Chandelier, I had to hear it.

Her voice is absolutely beautiful… This video is a must-watch!

Let me know what you think below!

gearing up for fall with leather pants & my remote

leather pants | three wishes style

It’s TV time right now. The time when new shows are premiering and TV stations are getting geared up for their new fall schedules. (In case you’re wondering why I’ve been bad about getting outfit posts up.)

TV is my life right now, and I’m not talking about the hours I spend sitting in front of it, but in fact the hours I spend making it, scheduling it, and hoping that people watch it! We have two new shows premiering this fall on The CW Network, The Flash (a comic book hero adaption and spin-off of Arrow) and Jane the Virgin, which sounds strange but it’s actually a really cute show.

I’m a self-proclaimed TV junkie… therefore I am super excited about the return of Scandal, The Walking Dead, Arrow, The Vampire Diaries and many more I can’t remember. Fall fashion and great TV, what could be better?

Anything you’re pumped to see (or wear) this fall?

a (red, burgundy, cranberry or maroon) dress

cranberry dress | three wishes style

Have you ever noticed that one color can have so many names? The color of the hour is cranberry, but isn’t cranberry the same as burgundy or maroon?

Do you think that the name of the color make us want to wear it more? Cranberry sounds waaaay better to me than red, or burgundy… so I guess this means that this dress is cranberry. ;)

We are going to be seeing a lot of this color for fall, and I for one and pretty happy about it. Speaking of fall, the temperatures are slowly starting to drop here, but just a little. I can feel the scarves and leather pants coming very soon!

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. ;)

OUTFIT 3: A Causal Lady in Heels

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).

LBD | summer or fall

one dress two ways | three wishes style

Black dress? Check.

Hat? Check

Red Crossbody? Check.

Same exact pose? Check.

These two outfits may seem similar but both looks give off completely different vibes. The look on the left (my summer look) is much more relaxed with help from my sandals, straw fedora and side braid. The look on the right gives off more of a fall vibe thanks to my new fav hat, these booties and a low ponytail. I feel the need to point out that these are two different red purses, the tassels on the fall look add a slight “boho” feel that I love, as opposed to the slightly dressier purse with the gold chain in my summer look.

I enjoy this time of year because I can get away with wearing either of these outfits (even if it’s still a little too hot to wear booties). When the weather cools down I can add a kimono and some tights to my fall look and continue to wear this dress all year. You really can never go wrong with an LBD, the styling options are endless.

I also wore this same LBD here as a shirt… when you’re styling on a budget you’ve got to get creative.

Which look is your fav?

midi skirt #6

1cream midi skirt | three wishes style

I’ve been working on getting my posts up earlier in the day, but I’ve been really busy.

Lately I’m having a thang with midi skirts, this is number 6. They make me feel so ladylike, plus when done right they instantly make me feel fashionable (even if men don’t understand them.)

Happy HUMP Day!!!
