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.

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...]

Pretty Plus-Size Look From the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale

Can you believe we're fast approaching the halfway point of 2015? One of the things I love about this time of year is the half-yearly sales!  Just because a store doesn't carry tall sizes doesn't mean tall ladies can't take advantage of all the deals and steals.  One trick I use when shopping these sales is to compare the measurements of a “non-tall” item with the measurements of a similar item from a tall line. Using this strategy, I’ve scoured the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale and put together a pretty plus-size outfit that will work well for tall ladies. Cut-out Detail Top.   Polka Dot Midi Skirt. Kate Spade Earrings.  Scalloped Peep Toe Pumps - to size 13. With a length of 28.5”, the polka dot midi skirt is a great addition to your wardrobe for year-round wear.  The bright polka dots are perfect for spring and summer and the black fabric allows the skirt to span all seasons.  Plus, you can wear a myriad of different colored tops with the skirt thanks to the multi-colored … [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. Long Torso Swimsuit (Sizes 8-24) Flip Flops. … [Read more...]

Boho Chic Style For Tall Ladies

Boho styles are everywhere these days, and I'm loving this trend because it evokes a certain carefree "happy wanderer" feeling in me.  I'm not quite comfortable going full boho by wearing a short tunic dress with over-the-knee boots or a fringed crop top and short denim shorts, but I think it would be fun to have at least one or two pieces from this trend in my closet. Embroidered Tall Tunic.  Tall Skinny Jeans. Turquoise Earrings.   Steve Madden Purse. Sperry Top-Sider Sandals. One thing I've learned over the years is that if I'm trying a trend for the first time, it's usually best for me to pick something that I would wear regardless of whether the item is "on trend” at the moment or not. This blue and white tall tunic dress is so pretty that I would continue to wear it even when the boho trend fades. I love the embroidered detailing, the lace-up front and the feminine fluted sleeves. Pairing the tunic with slightly distressed skinny jeans keeps the bohemian vibe going and adding … [Read more...]

A Chic, Comfortable Way to Style Tall White Jeans

Have you taken the plunge into the world of white jeans yet?  I know white denim has been a popular trend in ladies' fashion for quite awhile, but I was completely scared to try white jeans for the longest time because I didn't think they would suit my body type. When I finally did decide to try them, it took me ages to find a pair with a 36" inseam that properly fit my 6'2 frame and curvy hips. Now that I have a pair of  tall white jeans in my closet, I don't know how I ever lived without them!  I'm amazed about how many different tops and shoes I can pair them with. When you stop and think about it, the versatility of white jeans shouldn't be shocking since white is a neutral color and should mix well with basically any other color in the rainbow.  White jeans are virtually a blank slate for building an outfit and I highly recommend you give them a try! I personally style my white skinny jeans with longer tops and tunics because that works best for my body type. Tall tunics with a … [Read more...]
