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 … [Read more...]

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.

Tall Trends: Pretty Palm Prints

Are you looking for a bold summer pattern to add to your tall clothing collection that doesn't include florals?  A pretty palm print might just be the answer.  While I love floral prints, sometimes I want something a bit less "girly" and it's always good to have a bit of variety with the prints in my closet. When I think of a palm print, I typically see a green and white pattern in my mind's eye, but I've noticed several styles in other fun colors as well.  From workout clothes to dresses to PJs, frond prints are everywhere this summer. Check out some of my favorite picks:   Plus Size Dress - Length 43"  Black/White Shirtdress.    Green Tall Palm Dress.  PJs.

Day-to-Night Button-Up Tall Maxi Dress

Maxi dresses are usually a high-demand item amongst tall women, and I think I may have just found the perfect one! I had the exciting experience of visiting a Long Tall Sally store with my mom last week, and I immediately honed in on this mixed print, black and white button-up maxi dress. Floral Tall Maxi Dress.  Fringe Purse.   Orange Sandals.  Bangles.   Black Strappy Sandals. There is a lot to love about this dress.  For starters, it buttons all the way down which means you get to decide how much leg you want to show.  You can go from showing no leg at all to a maxi with a slit simply by undoing a few buttons. Being able to adjust the slit allows the dress to seamlessly go from a day look to a night look making it a very versatile piece.  You can also wear it as a long-line vest over shorts and a tank or over a slipdress. The scoop neckline is very flattering and perfect for showing off your favorite statement necklace.  The wide straps and full coverage on the back of the … [Read more...]

Summertime Lace – Tall Eyelet Tops, Dresses and Skirts

I have an infatuation with all things lacy.  While a fancy lace dress or skirt still has its place in tall summer fashions, eyelet lace is the perfect fabric for everyday wear during the warmer months. Here are a few tall eyelet styles that have caught my eye. White Zip Top with Eyelet Details (Sizes 6-18) If you only want to wear a bit of eyelet lace, this top is perfect for you since the lace detailing on the shoulders is very subtle. Eyelet  Tall Bomber Jacket (Sizes Small-XXL) Maybe temperatures are already sizzling where you live, but I was still wearing a summer scarf and light jacket last weekend. An eyelet bomber jacket is the perfect spring/summer layering piece for unpredictable weather. Tall Chevron Eyelet Skirt (Sizes 0-18) This cheery, light yellow skirt can be dressed down with a white t-shirt and sandals or dressed up with a pretty blouse and heels. Eyelet Tall Midi Skirt (Sizes S-XL)  I could easily see this eyelet midi skirt in black or white … [Read more...]

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...]
