Today I bring you 3 items that are incredibly hard for us to find; a maxi cardigan that is actually a maxi, over-the-knee boots that are actually cover the knee and a bodysuit that you can stand up straight in without giving yourself the dreaded wedgie in both the front and back.

Kye Black Maxi Cardigan in TALL - DIMILOC/Kyla over-the-knee boots - SMASH SHOES/Neck Piece - CANDID ART/Bodysuit - ASOS Tall (similar here)/Faux Leather Mini - H&M

Let's start with this miraculous garm from Dimiloc. Like all of the pieces on the Dimloc site, it's custom made and as you can see the height is right. I love the detailed braided boarder and the sleeves are so long, that a tall girl shed a baby tear of thankfulness. I look forward to using this as a swimsuit cover up during the summer as well. The drama dahling...the drama!

Let me introduce you to my new bambinos. These boots are not only comfortable but truly go over our knees. They are from Smash Shoes, also come in a beautiful grey and in sizes 11-14. You read that right and it's perfectly OK to let out a little scream of joy.

Now...let's talk about bodysuits. I LOVE a great bodysuit. A shirt that you never have to tuck in? Yes please. But you know retailers don't make bodysuits in the masses for us but guess who does...ASOS! They have haute, tall bodysuits for every occasion and I for one will take one of each.

And this my friends is what happens when you find pieces that fit...smiles everywhere! Ironically, this is all you really need. Yes, I love this outfit but your smile surpasses anything you could ever put on. You alone are enough. You alone are beautiful. You alone are amazing. Whatever you put on is just icing on the cake!

Chile…it’s spring! But the weather is going bananas. It doesn’t know what it wants to do. Make up your mind already!

I am really looking forward to warmth and the feel of the sun on my face but right now spring still has some winter tendencies. Thus, I split the difference with this outfit.

I threw in a little sweater action with some shorter sleeves. It’s warm for the morning chill but still works if the weather decides that it wants to change. The tall skinnies (crazy good right!?) also cover most of the leg but have the rip at the knee that provides a little air conditioning (ok…I know I’m stretching it a little here:).

The piece de resistance are these boots! I am in LOVE. Now…I am trying to buy less things (which we will talk about in another post) but when I saw these, I decided to treat myself. When you find a green boot in our size, you add them to the collection hunni! They are just the right color green, a soft suede and a bootie that doesn’t cut the leg but rather elongates it. You can wear these with pretty much everything, in every season! Did I mention that they come in sizes 11-14 and in a blush option? And all the tall girls did the happy dance!

Overall, this outfit really reflects where my personal style is morphing into...simplistic. Simplicity is key for me right now. I'm tired over overthinking. I want a wardrobe of pieces that are fiercely simple. This look definitely holds that title.

One thing about style is that it is ever evolving. You have the freedom and ability to change it not only for a season, but for a lifetime. Do what you do when you want to. Style is yours. Own it! 

Seek. Find. Buy. Rock.

I love the color palate that is emerging in tall fashion this spring. It's fresh, crisp and makes you wanna run around in a field of lilies or something.

I am also enamored by the beautiful cut of the dresses, comfort of the fabrics and simple statements of the prints and patterns.

And the shoes! SWAG in footwear form.

I say all of that to say this: there is some AMAZING TallSWAG out there right now.  Seek. Find. Buy. Rock.

Rock Red

Lately I have needed a little spice in my life.  Work has taken over and while there's nothing I can do about it right now, I can control what I wear to work...enter RED!

When you wear it, you feel sexy, fierce and unstoppable.  It's an instant pick-me-up for those days when you feel like everything will keep you down.  Turn it up a notch with red!

Tip: NEVER wear everything red.  For example. If you wore the Long Tall Sally Twist Front Maxi Dress (below) choose non-red accessories. You need something to balance it out. We can't have you walking down the street looking like a stick of Big Red. That is not OK.

Holiday SWAG

The holidays are RIGHT around the corner and you know what that parties! Time to eat, mingle and above everything, be cute:)

Personally, I like to start with a little black dress and then stack the deck with HOT shoes, bling, blang and a coat that introduces your whole look the minute you walk in.
