Do you still care?

I’m doing this post for 2 reasons…

1. This outfit is fabulous. The top and pants are straight asos tall. If you know me, you know that the asos tall line is my jam. And these shoes (enter eye bulging emoji). I am in love. They are from Smash Shoes. Again, if you know me, you know that Smash Shoes is also my jam. Quick note: order a size down in this shoe. It also comes in beige and I am here for it. Last but certainly not least...I die for these earrings! Full disclosure, my bestie makes them and she named them after me (emotional tear) but even if I didn't know her, I would buy ALL of her creations because they are fly. Actually fly doesn't even begin to describe her pieces. Don't believe me? See for yourself:-)

2. Do you care about style posts anymore?

No seriously. Be honest. I want to know.

While I will always share tall tips with you, do you still want to see what I am wearing? For me personally, I am moving into a space where my overall life is far more important than what I put on.

Gasp. Try not to fall out. Hold yourself up. It’s going to be ok.

I have a lot of life changes going on. Some amazing. Some very unpleasant. But the one thing that I know, is that the important things are being highlighted in the most vibrant way and clothing really isn’t anywhere in the top 10 right now. Do I strongly like clothing? Heck yes. Do I think I will die without it? Heck no.

So basically, I wanted to see if you were on the same wave. I feel like the Cinderella days of style blogs are over. Style posts or not, my evolution will be televised on TallSWAG. I’m going to do what I want to do, when I feel like doing it but I’m highly curious about your thoughts.

Let a tall girl know…are you still into what people are wearing? Por que?

Good Day Sacramento

November 30th not only marks my birthday, it will now also be known as the day that I recorded my first style segment on Good Day Sacramento. I am so incredibly thankful for the opportunity and here it is! Drumroll please...

Now for the deets! Neutrals will be taking over this season and to celebrate the trend, I styled 4 Tall looks that go a little somethin like this:

 ISSA WRAP

Carly (6'2")  rocked a  Tall wrap dress from Alloy Apparel.  The arms are super long and the midi actually hits where a midi is supposed to. The shoes are by  House No. 3028.  You can order any shade of nude in sizes up to 13. In addition you have the option for a 2"-5" heel and a matte or shine finish.

SPORTY SPICE

Monique (6'5")  beautified an all black look with a little edge to it. The jumpsuit is from Height Goddess and is built just for our tall frames. It's not available right now but here are some options from  asos  and  Long Tall Sally . The  asos Tall leather look jacket  and  BRASH sneakers (up to size 13)  completed this look.  PS. Neva, eva, eva, eva buy  Payless Shoes  without googling a coupon code or waiting for a BOGO. Also, you can order online and get them shipped to the store for free. I always order all the styles that I like, try them on in the store and return the ones I want right on the spot.

SWEAT EQUITY

High necks and belled sleeves are both on-trend this season.  With this tall sweater dress from Long Tall Sally  you get both!  Monica (6'1")  served this navy piece (up to size 18) with a belt and these killer  over-the-knee boots from Smash Shoes  (they are REALLY over-the-knee and up to size 14). A simple, chic look that will never go out of style.

COAT OF ARMS

Now you know it's hard to find a coat that keeps those wrists warm and hunni  asos has one straight from heaven .  Lameka (6'1")  slayed it on Good Day with some 36" Height Goddess Jeans, a  roll neck top from LTS  and some  beautiful Smash booties (up to size 14).  Check out these jean options from  asos ,  LTS ,  Alloy Apparel ,  Doubs Clothing  and  Amalli Talli .

As for me...I have on a Long Tall Sally dress from last season and a pair of Eleanor Anukam heels (size 12).

A segment like this really takes a village to execute and let me tell you...my village is gorgeous and strong! Thank you to my dear friends Carly, Monique, Monica and Lameka for shutting these looks all the way down, my ace Nikki Notarte for always having my back and enhancing all of our beauty with her talents and last but certainly not least Courtney Dempsey for making all of this possible! God has really placed some incredible people in my life. I am blessed in every single way!

Let me know what you think about the piece. Also, if you have any ideas/connections for more pieces...please let me know. I mean...a closed mouth doesn't get fed lol. I am here for all of the constructive criticism, suggestions and connections:-) 

No Limit

The minute I saw the whole denim meets fishnet situation...I had to have it. I love the way they crash together but of course my search for tall fishnets wasn't very fruitful. I mean, it's hard enough to find the tall denim part, let alone fishnets that are long enough for these long legs hunni! Guess who came to my rescue?,,,

ASOS baby! I can't say enough about their tall line. I squeal every time I visit the page because there is always something new that is just what this tall girl ordered. My version of hitting the lotto would be one of everything in ASOS tall for life. Publishers Clearing House taint got nothing on that. Ok, ok. I would take the money too but I know you feel me.

Their fishnet leggings are just the right length and fit underneath denim beautifully. These beautiful jeans are from ASOS too. As you can see, they are long and have crazy good details like the hi-low hem. I wear these with everything. 

Oh...hey hair. How you doin?

And let us not forget to talk about this cropped jacket from Long Tall Sally. It is sublime. It's cropped in the right spot, the arms are long enough and it's super lightweight. This amazing little denim jacket is spot on for spring days and summer nights. It's part of the new CURATD X LTS line, which is equally as beautiful as this jacket.  

I'm super happy that I found both the fishnet and cropped look in tall but don't you ever think that a style isn't for you because you can't find it. If it isn't out there...get to designing! If you can't sew, find someone who can and create your vision together.

Do not...I repeat...do not, let the limitations of the industry stop you from living your style life. Style is an expression of your unique creation...dress accordingly!

SIMPLICITY

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! 

BUSTED

There is nothing I love more than a simple, chic, black and white combo. You seriously can't go wrong. No matter the type of dress, from casual to a night out, a black and white ensemble is a surefire way to look put together and polished.

These jeans from ASOS Tall set this black-white fit off! The rips are in all of the right places. I mean the bust at the knee is actually AT THE KNEE which is unheard of for us. They are super flattering, comfy and can go from day to night with ease. These jeans are one of those amazing Tall finds that you squeal about when you put them on. I might have hugged them at one point but don't tell nobody.

I paired them with this thrifted shirt from Savers (one of my thrift favs) and a neutral pump, from your favorite and mine, Nordstrom Rack. When all was said in done this entire fit was under $100! I just love fits that are comfy, polished and economical don't you?

BTW...HAPPY FRIDAY! Slay the weekend beautiful:-)
