Where Brooklyn At

Hello tall, beautiful people! I know...I haven't posted in awhile and that's because I was on vacation (insert vacation dance here)!

I went to one of my favorite places ever...NEW YORK! Brooklyn to be specific. I love everything about it. There is actually not one bad word I could say about BK so you can imagine how amazing my vacation was! It all started here... 

Fresh off the red-eye, I was greeted by my very own Subway station! That's my story and I'm sticking to it. 

I did my wonder woman spin (aka freshed up) and spent the day enjoying the Borough, eating and most importantly eating. It was a fabulous, laid-back day. I felt cute and carefree in my dress from Akira and flat sandals from Payless (size 12)

The next day I went to church and on the way back to my hotel met an amazing lady. Her name is Miss Dorothy. She approached me in the sweetest way possible and asked me how tall I was. After telling her, she complimented me on my height and told me that is was beautiful. It was so lovely and quite frankly one of the highlights of the trip. It's just a reminder that we are surrounded by amazing people and that we shouldn't let the occasional rude person spoil the bunch

Later that day, I changed it up a bit from the church fit (ok...a lot bit) and put on my tall leopard bodysuit and culottes from ASOS Tall. It was the perfect day-to-night outfit because all I had to do was change the flats to heels for instant night glam. Comfy-cool in the city by day and chic in the city by night. 

Now, in my life, work and play are always paired together so I had a little 2 day stint right in the middle of my BK adventure where I attended a conference. During the conference we had an outing which was a night cruise to Liberty Island. I challenged Lady Liberty to a height battle and won. I definitely brought it this time. 

I spent part of my last day in BK celebrating two amazing people, My friend Amanda's Mother and my Dad. Both of them were named Ollie and we miss both of them immensely. We decided to pay tribute to our Ollies by placing a lock for each of them on the beautiful Brooklyn Bridge. Since birth, my Dad always told me that he loved me all the way back to the elbows. It's something that I cherish. It will forever be in my heart and now it resides on the Brooklyn Bridge. Love you Daddy!  

Last, but certainly not least, I had one last dinner in BK with some friends. It was a night of great food and even better company. This set (Top HERE/Skirt HERE) from ASOS tall was perfect for the occasion (both for under $80). I paired the printed frock with my favorite new heels from Sole Society. I am still elated that they now have styles up to size 12!

So that's a snapshot of my adventures in BK. I can't wait to go back! What are you rocking on your summer vacations? Please tag me in your posts so I can see your tall fashion fabulousness:)
