Safari Chic: Featuring a Tall Swim Dress

Recently my friend sent me a link to a tall swim dress and I knew I needed to share it with you!  I gave up bikinis long ago for a variety of reasons but have not yet waded into the 'swim dress' category- mostly because I haven't found one I like.  Well that's not the case anymore.  I love this simple and pretty, tall swim dress.  It's stylish and perfect for walking the boardwalk, lounging by the water, or chasing the kiddos.  The price is right and it comes in tall.  So perfect.

My Classy Valentine: An Elegant Date Night Look

Hey friends! If you subscribe to the newsletter, last week you saw a pretty and romantic date night look in honor of Valentine's Day.  While browsing for inspiration, I found so many darling tall dresses that I had to create one more Valentine's Day look.  I've said repeatedly that I don't necessarily think there are hard and fast rules pertaining to dressing for your age.  However I know with each stage in life comes different challenges that, practically speaking, call for different attire.  I considered that when I created this look. While the other look was very pretty, let's be real--a lace back tall dress just won't work for many of us.  Whether you're 40+, 4 months postpartum (me. ahem.), or just more conservative in general, this tall dress might be a more realistic option.   Large Size Shoes (up to size 12). Tall Dress.   Mirror Metallics Nail Polish.   Lace Clutch.   Earrings.   Necklace. … [Read more...]

Three Fun Holiday Sweaters and a Review

I love dressing in theme.  And I pride myself on doing it stylishly (most of the time. I'm only human).  So today I bring you three of my favorite holiday tall sweaters plus a review. Casual Pick: I've mentioned on my personal blog's Facebook page that I'm a bit obsessed with fair isle.  This tall sweater is so fun and preppy.

Tall Clothing Review: Your Coziest Sweater Awaits

I think the title of this post says it all.  I am in love with my new tall shawl sweater.  Unfortunately I just noticed last night (prior to getting this written!) that it's nearly sold out in tall sizes.  If you like it, run, don't walk and order now!  It also comes in graphite and black and while I generally try not to buy several colors of the same clothing item, I'd make an exception for this one.  Here are the things I love about it:   -It's very warm and cozy.  It can actually be worn as a jacket in the chilly (but not freezing) fall months. -The oatmeal color is the perfect neutral.  You can pair it with brights, brown, or black. -The sleeves are SO long!  Sometimes the tall items in this partner store aren't as long, especially in the sleeves, as I'd like them to be.  Not the case with this one! -It's perfect to layer with button down shirts or tees.  Even a ruffly or more feminine shirt underneath would look great. -The price.  With all the sales lately, … [Read more...]

Tribal Trend

Hello! I've been MIA but for good reason!  I had a baby boy about a month ago!  He's perfect in every way but we're still getting used to life with three kiddos!  I plan to blog a tiny bit here and there until I can get back into the swing of things.  I've missed having an excuse to browse cool clothes and fun trends!  Today I wanted to share a couple of easy and stylish looks for fall featuring one of my favorites: the tribal trend.  I became obsessed with this trend last fall (perhaps it's what influenced my son's nursery?) and am quite pleased that it's stuck around. Today I bring you two looks featuring tribal inspired cardis + skinny jeans + mocs.  It's an easy casual and chic combination!  Pair the cardigans with a chambray shirt (my go-to) like this one or a long sleeved tee like this one.   Sweater: Desert Night Cardigan. Tall jeans: 1969 Real Straight Tall Jeans. Moccasins: El Paso II Suede Moccasin. Up to size 11. Sweater: Oversized Textured … [Read more...]

Tall Maternity Style & A Review

I can't believe it's been THIS long and I haven't shared any maternity posts!  I suppose life has me very busy but I couldn't go another day without sharing a maternity look with you!  Here's the sporty one I wore the other day: 1969 Always Cuffed Skinny Jeans. I really like the jeans! I love the wash and the cuff.  They aren't "tall" per se but fit like longer length capris.  For some reason this pregnancy, I've had a really hard time finding pants and jeans that stay put and I have to admit these do sag on and off while I'm wearing them--requiring me to pull them up.  I felt in between sizes and went up to the next size which was probably unnecessary because they do stretch a bit throughout the day.  All in all I'd recommend them but be warned- they aren't the perfect pair.  That said, the price is right and it's tough to find cute/trendy maternity wear so to me, the imperfections are worth it. Asos Baseball Maternity Tee. I actually own this one but it's only available in one … [Read more...]
