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:)

Listen. There are a ton of 'rules' that people claim to live by when it comes to style. There are many great suggestions and opinions out there. You can listen to them all but at the end of the day, choose what you want to wear when you want to wear it.

For example it's spring. I was told by many mags to dust the faux leather for florals and neon. While you will see me rocking both of those, on this particular day I was feeling faux so I put it on and rocked it out. Rules shmules.

I also took the opportunity to wear one of my favorite Warriors hats. As you may or may not know, I work for the team but if I didn't, this hat would be in my collection. Trey hot. Side note: Wish we would have gone further in the Playoffs, but I'm proud of my team...looking forward to the next season. #DubNation stand up!

What styles will you be choosing this spring and summer?

My favorite for fall is definitely faux. I love all of the faux leather touches and pieces of the season.  From a collar on a dress shirt to a shift dress, it's everywhere and I am ready to wear it.

When I saw these faux 37" skinnies from Alloy, I couldn't click ADD TO BAG fast enough. They can be dressed up or down, are super soft and easy to put on and most importantly long enough (can I get an amen).

I paired it with my new found friend...the beanie.  It's perfect for those days when the hair won't cooperate or you just plain don't want to do it.  I also had to buy it because it was red and I am a firm believer that a red accessory makes any outfit pop.

The shirt is great because 1) It was a gift from my bestie Holley 2) It is extra long in the torso and hits me right at the waist and 3) It's hot.

Last but certainly not least, the infamous fanny pack (or side bag if you are feeling sophisticated which I rarely am). Who doesn't love a bag that you don't have to carry? Picked it up for a $1.50 and it comes in mighty handy.

The shoes! The shoes! We all know it's hard to find wedge sneakers that fit especially at a great price.  When I found these at Payless it was a no-brainer.

So...what are you wearing your faux with?
