#INSTAstyle Dos

Alicia JayComment

Hello Lovely! I hope this blog finds you well. How do you like the new site? Personally, I think it's FAB but I'm kind of partial to it. Anywho, it's time for a little INSTAstyle roundup! These are everyday looks that I post on my IG and since you might not have one...I thought I would share them altogether:)

This is a little workflow look. I absolutely adore these animal print pants (36" inseam) from Long Tall Sally. They are on sale for $49! Since they are relaxed, I wore them with relaxed oversized pieces. The blazer is from Forever 21 and the shirt is from H&M. See...in-store pieces do work for us! You thought I forgot about the shoes...never. Nordstrom Rack baby (size 12).

This shirt! Can you deal!? I squealed when I got it. You're darn right Life is short, but I'm not. It was perfect for a casual Friday with Alloy Apparel skinnies (37" inseam) and classic Converse kicks. If you like this tee, check out the entire tall t-shirt line from Height Goddess.

So this dress is extremely old. One of those LBD's that lasts a lifetime. I copped it from H&M when I was in college which I would like to say was last year but it wasn't. Let's leave it at that. I rocked it with a thrifted belt, old faithful clutch and some sick ones from Nine West (size 12).

Oh, hello denim! I love the Canadian tuxedo. One of my favorite trends this season. The top is from Gap Tall, the cropped jeans are from Democracy (not tall but they work). Yes, these are the same booties you saw earlier. I repeat for many reasons but mainly because being broke isn't cute. Being fiscally responsible is gorgeous.

This. Dress. Is. Amazing. I love the way it fits. The perfect tall-short length. I wore it to a baby shower but there are so many occasions at which you could rock it. Get this...it's only $45. WARNING! Clicking too fast on a length could result in a hurt finger. Be careful my friend.

I know this guy named Christian. He's one of the Nice Guys and he has a t-shirt line to prove it. I am a huge fan of the Nice Brand and one of the best things about it, is that with every purchase 20% of the proceeds go to the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. It's an awesome brand for an awesome cause. As you can see, I'm Nice.

Well, that's another INSTAstyle roundup. If you are more into the instant thing than the roundup thing, follow TallSWAG on the gram: @TallSWAG. See you there or be square:) Later beautiful!

LBD PART DEUX

Zoie Racerback Maxi Dress - Height Goddess (Shown in 67" length)/Shoes - Alloy Apparel/Neck piece - Forever 21/Wrist piece - Charlotte Russe/Clutch - H&M

I am a firm believer that every girl needs 2 LBD's; a little black dress and a long black dress.  They are both equally important to the success of your wardrobe because they are classic and can be worn in so many ways.

Take this beautiful long black Zoie Racerback Maxi Dress from Height Goddess. It can be dressed up or down, you can easily throw on a long cardigan with a belt and scarf for a fall/winter look and it is super flattering for most body types. Like most black dresses, it's a chameleon piece.

In particular, Height Goddess Maxi dresses are the absolute bomb! They come in different inseams (genius move) and are constructed specifically for our tall frames. You truly can't go wrong with an HG maxi.

So that is my take on the LBD Deux. Personally I think I am rockin it fabulously in this parking lot. I mean, why not traipse through an empty lot in a luxurious dress and heels? #ParkingLotSWAG

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of The Limited. All opinions are 100% mine.

There is a newbie in town and I am so excited to tell you all about it! Wait for it...The Limited launched a new Tall Shop! Yep. It's brand spankin new and I am here to tell you all about it!

First, I absolutely love the quality. These pieces feel great and are constructed really well. Not only are they constructed well, the proportions are gravy! The line is actually crafted to fit our long, beautiful limbs and areas that particularly matter to us like rise, inseam and even the bend at the knee. Let me break it down for you...

The Tall Lace Detail Blouse is plenty long in the body and the arms hit right where they should. I am always a skeptical one when it comes to the arm length of "tall" blouses but this one actually came correct. The detail on the blouse is amazing. No accessories needed with this baby.

Now for the Tall Inset Skater Skirt. Again, skeptical city. Was it going to cover the buns? Yeah buddy! Not only does it cover them, it hits where a skater skirt is supposed to hit. Well, fancy that! It is a great piece and the flow of the skirt just makes you feel like a pretty princess.

As if the tall line wasn't enough, The Limited has some amazing accessories too. This mini Dome Satchel is the perfect little sidekick. It holds everything nicely and you can cross body or carry it.  It polishes off the pretty.

The full collection looks stunning. There are many tall options in the LTD Tall Shop from jackets to suiting to versatile dresses, giving you ample opportunities to mix and match. A little birdie also told me that they will be offering select Scandal items in tall in September...and all of the tall girls squealed at once!

Now, for the time being the items in the LTD Tall Shop will only be available online but keep those side eyes to yourself because you can return them to THELIMITED.com or in-store for free of charge. Yay for stress free online shopping!

Speaking of shopping...how does $100 gift card to The Limited sound? You could win it with one comment. Check out the Tall Shop and comment below with what your favorites are from the Tall collection to be automatically entered to in the $100 LTD gift card (make sure you include your email address). The winner will be picked at random and announced on TallSWAG.com on Wednesday, August 20th.

I can't wait to see your favorite picks! I also look forward to showing more pieces from the line soon so make sure you check back into TallSWAG for more reviews and options from the new Tall Shop from The Limited.

Sniff sniff, wipes tears. Alas, the last days of summer are upon us. According to the web...only 50 which is a little over 7 weeks, which is not even 2 months, which quite frankly sucks.

With that said, we still have some time left to break out those tanks, throw on that swimsuit and rock summer styles like there is no tomorrow (unless it's 49 days from now and tomorrow is fall).

One of my fav fits this summer has involved these tall, floral shorts from ASOS Tall. Yes, they are short but usually short shorts don't even hit mid-cheek on us, so for me the short-tall length that ASOS Tall has is a winner.

I paired the floral beauties with a denim shirt that had the same flow as the shorts, a little Forever bling to balance the beauty of the floral pattern and some pretty purple shoes because who doesn't love pretty purple shoes? The clutch is one of those finds that makes you giggle. Cute + $5.99 = Going home with Alicia. 

What are you going to rock during these last days of summer?
