What to Wear to a Casual Backyard Wedding

We were recently invited to a casual wedding reception for a couple who were married in a different state.  I was a bit stumped as to what to wear since it's not the actual wedding nor is it at a formal venue.  I decided the occasion calls for something pretty but understated.  A simple tall dress + pretty accessories is the answer.

Tall Trends: Fringe and Tassels for the Win

I'm seeing tassels and fringe everywhere right now - on purses, tops, dresses, jewelry, shoes - the list goes on. I'm really loving that there are so many different ways to wear this fun, flirty and sometimes sassy trend. Tall ladies can rock some serious fringe since the long fringe detailing on a dress or top perfectly compliments long limbs. If you want to go all out, try wearing a little black dress with fringe details. If you'd prefer your fringe to be a little less obvious, wear it on a pair of sandals or a purse. Do you think the fringe trend is a bit too over-the-top? The subtler cousin of fringe, tassels, is just the thing for you. I love the understated tassel tie around the waist of the green maxi dress. The stone pendant necklace with a gold tassel at the bottom is something I'd continue to wear even after this trend fades. When I think of tassels on shoes, I typically think of a classic loafer. Why not try a more updated style by choosing a bright tassled … [Read more...]

Tall Outfits for Memorial Day

Memorial Day weekend usually means either going to a BBQ, spending a day at the beach or both if you're lucky.  It's always a good idea for tall ladies to stock up on some long torso swimsuits so that we're ready for some fun in the sun once beach season rolls around.  The featured swimsuit not only boasts a long torso but also comes in a wide range of sizes, including plus sizes. Pair this tall swimdress with basic flip flops that are easy to wash off once you've left the sand and a Panama hat to shield you from the sun.  Of course, you'll also need a cute straw bag to stow all of your beach necessities.  I love the lace detailing on the straw tote.  Don't you? Memorial Day Beach/Poolside Look Fancy a stroll to a beachside cafe for some lunch? Put a pretty cover-up dress over your swimsuit and you're ready for some beachside dining.  Not going to be near a beach for Memorial Day?  No problem! This look will also work for the pool.
