#LTSsince76

Let me tell you about a 40-year-old bombshell! She is tall, chic and has been helping tall women enhance their height since 1976. I am talking about Long Tall Sally. It's the tall retailers 40th and I know I couldn't be more excited to celebrate 40 groundbreaking years of tall style!

Over the last 40 years LTS has truly changed the face of tall style. While there are many tall retailers that slay tall clothing, Long Tall Sally has been the frontrunner in bringing chic, tall clothing and shoes to elevated ladies everywhere. They stay ahead of the trends, constantly look for ways to cater to ALL tall women and truly want tall women to wear clothing and shoes that express their individual style. 

A perfect example of LTS style is my first look for fall. This floral shirt dress is a perfect way to bring the season in. It's chic, effortless and it's bold black, white and navy pattern is definitely on-trend. The dress itself is crafted specifically for us with longer arms and just the right length in the body.

The boots are A1 for the upcoming season. You will see the flare heel everywhere and their timeless look will work for seasons to come. I will be wearing this boot with everything! The best part...they come in sizes up to 15! Over the last 40 years Long Tall Sally has continually found ways to bring the latest footwear and size options to us and I know I will forever be thankful for that.

Long Tall Sally wants to celebrate their 40 years by sharing your LTS stories. Share your memories and you could win a gift card that will help you create new ones! ENTER HERE.

 Happy 40th LTS...here is to 40 more!

I seriously canNOT believe that summer is almost over. I'm sad but going to enjoy this last month in chic dresses like this crazy-good maxi dress from Tall Girls UK.

Not only is it long enough (I am wearing 3.5" heels and it's STILL the perfect length), it is also the perfect floral print and a piece that you can transition right into fall.

How you ask?

1) SPORT IT UP. Add a sweatshirt and some tennies for a sporty look. I plan to throw on a light grey simple cotton shirt and some metallic Converse like THIS OPTION from Tall Girls UK. A comfy, fab, fall remix for all of your maxi dresses.

2) WILD WEST IT. Throw on a long cardigan, belt and boots of your choice. This Long Line Cardigan is the perfect tall option for this western inspired look. 

3) BLAZE A TRIAL. You can easily wear your maxi dress to the office by adding a chunky necklace, blazer and loafer. Check out these tall blazer options that will transform this summer dress in to a chic office fit.

So slow your roll on putting those maxi dresses in the back of the closet and keep them out to incorporate in your fall repertoire!

I really want to see YOUR tall looks so please tag them with @TallSWAG. See you soon sweet stuff!;)

Right now we are smack in the middle of that time where your closet is very confused. It's teetering on spring frocks but still has some items left over from winter because quite frankly Mother Nature can't make up her darn mind. Yep. Your closet is having a plethora of issues right now.

What to do? Wear everything of course. Mix in your boots with your spring dresses (hence above), your sweaters with your shorts and your leather with EVERYTHING. Throw it all at the wall and see what sticks.

What stuck for me here was this pretty tall floral dress from ASOS. It's fun to wear. In fact, I feel like twirling down the street every time I wear it (and have). I paired it with some edgy midi boots, a biker vest and this crossbody bag from Alloy that I pretty much wear with everything. My answer to the tweener season.

What will you take from winter to spring?
