Traveling is the only thing you buy that makes you richer. -Unknown

I am on my way to Cancun and Cuba!

I have a feeling that it is going to change a lot of things. I am going to let go and invite all that God wants me to experience. It will be 19 days to remember!

I plan to unplug for the most part however if the precious wifi spots agree with me on the trip, I may be posting on Instagram: @TallSWAG, SnapChat: @TheAliciaJay and Facebook. Regardless, there will be a full wrap-up when I get back.

I am so incredibly grateful for this trip...let the much needed vacay begin! Catch you later my Tall loves:-)

The Incredible Kacy

Summer is right around the corner and you know what that means...maxi dress weather! And I found the maxi of all maxis...I mean I am in deep love with the Kacy Maxi dress from Height Goddess!

Just look at the length! It comes in 68" and 72" lengths and the pattern is print perfect. It's seriously effortless and versatile and as a matter of fact, I have 3 ways to wear this beautiful, Tall dress for you right now!


You can wear the Kacy Maxi Dress to work by adding some simple things that you have in your closet; blazer, neutral shoe, statement necklace, belt and bag. The belt gives the dress some shape and the blazer makes the dress office appropriate. In the summer, pick a lightweight 3/4 sleeve blazer like this one from Forever 21.

After a long day at work, it's time for a night out with the ladies right? Check out how you can change this maxi up with some very simple steps...


Take that blazer off and add some sassy frosting. Swoop that hair to the side and change the dynamics of the dress by tying it in a little knot at the bottom of the maxi. An instant night look in a snap. PS, Add a statement shoe like the Rollie from Smash Shoes to set your maxi-night look off!

Now for the DAY look...

The Kacy gives a new definition to effortless-chic. Really, you could rock this baby barefoot with absolutely no accessories and be the darling of the day. For my day look, I threw on some fringe boots from Payless, one of my favorite necklaces of the season from Candid Art and a floppy hat to finish the look. 

Maxi dresses are Tall essentials in my book. When you find one that is long and versatile like the Kacy, it's a win-win-win situation. It proves it's worth in the fact that you can wear it 3 ways and I for one am a happy camper! 

I hope you liked my looks and I would love to hear how you rock your maxi dresses. Please leave a comment below or tag your looks with @TallSWAG. See ya on the flip side!
