Running Men

In the past month I was approached by 3 men, at 3 completely separate times, who wanted to get to know me. I was actually interested in all of them and thus reciprocated their requests. Subsequently each one of them ran…no sprinted…when they found out that I was waiting for marriage.

This has happened before and it will happen again until I find him.

Running men occur when waiting for your husband and while rejection definitely hurts, it’s part of the process that I am most grateful for. It completely weeds out the men who physically want you versus the men who actually want YOU. The men who merely want to sleep with you will straight Road Runner it the moment you speak the V in virgin.

Let them run.

 A man who isn’t patient enough to wait for you, sex or otherwise, will never last a lifetime.

And whatever you do, do not…I repeat DO NOT…run after a man who is running from you. It’s a pursuit that you will never win and quite frankly makes no sense. Love will never run from you and you will never have to run after it. Real love forms, happens, stays. I speak from experience on this (that’s a whole other blog).

Little do these guys know, they are running from a lifetime of the very thing that they want. Virgins are waiting to unleash every fantasy they have ever had on the one man that waits for them. They think about it all the time but find it special enough to save for one amazing person who deserves them. These running men, miss out on forever for an impatient moment. But that’s none of my business though.

PLEASE run from me so he has a clear path to find me.

Let's Meet Up!

Hello Beautiful! It's been quite awhile since my last post. My bad. Life has been crazy. I have an amazing project that I have been working on (that I can't quite talk about yet) and the Playoffs (Go Warriors!) are right around the corner so I have been slammed. Please know that I missed you every moment I was away!

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I raved about the H&M New Neutrals line. I love a great neutral and all of the pieces (which flew off the shelves) were right up my alley. I went to the store the day they were released and of course most of the options didn't fit BUT they had this amazing sweater that did. It's super comfy but has side detailing that makes the sweater polished. It has short sleeves, which make it a great option for us and also a surprisingly long body. I know I say it time and time again but it's a testament to the fact that you must try things on.

I put on a form fitting skirt to balance out the silhouette and threw on my babies...the Rollie from Smash Shoes. Side Note: Smash Shoes just came out with an over the knee boot in sizes 10-13 which you will see in a future post so stay tuned. And last but not least, I added one of my fav trends this season, a bag in a bag! You can bring all of your stuff in the bigger bag or put the essentials in the smaller bag and keep it movin...a Tall Girl loves her some options!

It's great seeing you again:-) Have a great day Luv...Stand Tall in everything you do!

There are so many things I want to do when I find the one. Obviously, as someone who is waiting for her husband, sex is at the tippy top of that list (let's keep it real) but another more stylish point on my list of todos is to wear my man's clothes. I mean, it's a whole new, super comfy wardrobe that is already mine and he has no idea that he is building it for me right as we speak.

Until then, I have to make do with some select menswear inspired choices of my own and this oversized dress shirt from H&M definitely fits the bill. You can dress it up or down but the end result is always a sultry, fierce look. An oversized dress shirt is one of my must have options for spring and summer.

Today I paired it with a faux leather mini skirt but you can rock it with some ripped skinny jeans, shorts, really anything and create the same sexy style.

My foot candy is from a brand that is climbing to the top of my shoe heart with every style they release! The Mercedes is by Smash Shoes (also comes in black). They make some super hot styles in sizes 10-13. If you haven't checked them out...what are you waiting for!?! I have also reviewed the Rollie in a previous post and can't say enough about the brand that was created just for us!

This is also proof that you can walk in to a store and find something. It's an homage to #5 on my list of Tall Style Tips that Every Tall Girl Needs to Know...TRY EVERYTHING ON! You will have some misses but the makes are worth the trials!

PS. Yes I am aware that I need a tan. I tried a little DIY bronzing with some disastrous results (which I cleverly tried to disguise in my last post with makeup)  but until I master it, this is what you are going to get. A Tall Girls pockets can't pay for a constant spray tan and I definitely doesn't have the time or proper sun to lay out right now...ya feel me!

Catch ya later Tall Beauties! xoxo:)
