Ladylike Tall Dress for Summer

I fell in love with this ladylike cotton floral dress during a recent visit to a Long Tall Sally store.  Alas, I was not able to bring it home with me because they did not have my size in stock, but now I can’t seem to get it out of my mind.  This is mainly due to the fact that I am hunting high and low for any clothing made with breathable fabrics for this hot summer weather.  The fabric felt so summery and light against my skin, and I know it would be the perfect addition to my summer dress repertoire.  I have a sneaking suspicion it will end up in my closet soon especially since it’s on sale right now!

This dress would be simply perfect to wear to a daytime summer wedding, a bridal or baby shower, a dressy brunch, church…endless possibilities. The mid-calf length of the skirt hits at just the right spot and the self-tie belt defines the waist (and also provides for one of my favorite details – a bow).

It would look perfect paired with ladylike grey peep-toe pumps, a sophisticated silver bangle and a lavender clutch.

Beat the Heat: Tall Linen Finds

My current obsession: Linen! I’m sure you can guess why. If not, here’s a hint: IT’S HOT!

Thanks to the sweltering summer weather, I’m craving breathable, lightweight fabrics. I found a pair of tall linen pants hiding in the back of my closet, and I’m surprised by how many times I reach for them now as I’m getting dressed. The amount of wears I’m getting out of these once forgotten pants is inspiring me to hunt for other linen items.

Here are a few of my favorite linen picks for tall ladies:
