Stormy Leather

Spring and leather are 2 words that you don't really hear together too often but they can definitely be a match made in Heaven. I personally believe that leather can be chic in any season and these 38" inseam High Rise Leather Skinnies from Amalli Talli prove that. They set this structured spring look off. I simply love them.

I paired them with a military inspired vest from ASOS Tall and these killer babies from Smash Shoes. I mean the lace-up fierceness is everything. Slay.

Now the foundation is great but the accessories give this look a metallic exclamation point and the lines of both the bracelet and belt compliment each other without being too matchy-matchy.  

I hope you enjoy the look as much as I enjoy wearing it! How do you rock leather is spring weather?

PS. I know this is short and sweet but the Playoffs have this Tall Girl tired hunni. I hope everything makes sense:-)

Hey Amalli Talli!

Let's meet our new friend shall we? Hey Amalli Talli! We are so excited to make your acquaintance and thank you for these crazy, fabulous high rise leather Yoga Jean Skinnies in 38" inseam (say that 10 times fast).

Amalli Talli has some amazing tall options but these jeans take the cake. They have superior stretch that does not get baggy 10 seconds after you put them on. They keep their shape while giving you shape. I also love that they are high rise so the whole butt crack showing when you bend over thing doesn't happen.

In addition to the fab feel of the fabric, they also have a snakeskin print. It takes the whole faux leather situation to new levels. With the print they are far more interesting than most of the tall, leather pants out there.

Last, but certainly not least...look at the God sent length of this jean! They posses 38" inches of yoga jean goodness. Dare I say they were almost too long (which I think we can agree is a beautiful "problem" to have. 

With that said...both Amalli Talli and these fab jeans have my tall stamp of approval. I will be rocking them often! #TeamWearClothesMoreThanOnce :-)

Winter finally set in on the west coast...well...our version of it anyway. When it started to get nippy out, I went in my closet to create layers which led to some major mixing of tall staples and off-the-rack items.

I began where I always do; a tall foundation. I used 2 pieces that are long and slimming. They cover and create the perfect palate for layers.

I then added a long, sleeveless sweater with a high collar to class up the joint and polished the look off with the marbled faux fur vest. With the foundation being appropriate in length, the layers can easily be copped right off the shelf. Don't believe me? Wear your tall basics to a store and try on a bunch of options. I guarantee you that you walk out with a new perspective of what will work for you in-store.

Well...that's all I got. Coming off of a 16 hour work day leaves little brain power. Yes, it says 16 hours. Don't ask.

Next up...I am off to NYC for a couple of days. I am checking out the Warriors on the road and most importantly having a blast in a city that I love with some amazing friends! I will be posting on Facebook and Instagram because that is what bloggers apparently do on trips:)

See you soon beautiful...slay the day!
