As many of you know, I am the Game Operations Manager for the Golden State Warriors.  As many of you also know...WE ARE IN THE PLAYOFFS!  If you didn't know, now you do.

I say all of that to say this, I am working my tail off!  It's a GREAT busy, but busy none-the-less.  Needless to say, when I am not working, I am doing as little as possible and SUPER casual. 

While we all know I love a fierce heel, after standing in those bad boys all game, these days in my off time, you are more then likely going to catch me in a flat (a fabulous one of course). I'm a huge fan of these MIA flats that I picked up for under $50 at Nordstrom Rack. They are comfy and blinged out. What's not to love?

The oversized dress shirt from Collage Clothing Lounge is one of my go-to casual shirts.  It's one of those "feels like pajamas but doesn't look like pajamas" kind of shirts. Win-Win situation.

One thing I always have to have in my casual fit is a pop of something.  Whether it be color, texture and/or print it must add an extra something to the equation. These tall ankle, animal print skinnies from Old Navy do the trick.

What about the frosting for a casual look?  I say go big or go home. I chose to go chains and more chains for this look but whatever you choose, in my humble opinion, do it big.

And for the piece de resistance, THE HANDBAG! My new love from Long Tall Sally (Yes. They have accessories too!).  It holds everything, is very well made and the color is perfect for this season and seasons to come. Want something a little louder?  It comes in red too.  Approved investment piece.

Now that you have the 101 on my casual look, what's yours?

Stand Tall In this LTS Maxi Skirt

It's Long Tall Sally Stand Tall Week (cheers:) and The LTS Cut About Stripe Maxi Skirt is definitely something you can STAND TALL in.

I am 6'6" and when I wear flats the skirt hits the floor (yay!). It looks great with a fierce pair of wedges too.

Check out my review and you will see exactly why it's the perfect piece to showcase during the Long Tall Sally Stand Tall Week!

Stand Tall Week

April 16-22 is going to be one amazing week!  Introducing (drum roll please)...STAND TALL WEEK presented by Long Tall Sally!

It's a week long celebration of everything tall.  Tall fashion, tall beauty and tall empowerment.  What could be better? 

Here's the skinny on STW:

Stand Tall Week was created by Long Tall Sally to show every tall woman that their height is to be celebrated and embraced. The week is filled with everything tall including tall model scouting, a week long pop-up shop and fashion presentation and appearances by tall expert Arianne Cohen. Side note: I LOVE the logo with the heel in it. Rock those heels tall beauties!

We all know how I love a Long Tall Sally pop-up shop and this one is open for an entire week! Unfortuantely my jet is in the shop right now (hehe:) or I would fly out and shop everyday! Click for store details and check out the TallSWAG video below to see what you can expect at an LTS pop-up.

Meet tall expert Arianne Cohen. She is 6'3", a tall expert and is the author of The Tall Book (She's also from Portland, OR which also happens to be my hometown! PO! Woop Woop!). Click the pic for more on Ms. Cohen and her rold in STW.Long Tall Sally has amazing clothes. Instead of extending them and calling them 'tall' they actually create them for tall women. That's right ladies, they make cllothes JUST for us! Click to see what one of their garments looks like on in the TallSWAG review on their amazing shirt dress.

I know that the Long Tall Sally Stand Tall Week is going to change the lives of tall women.  I encourage everyone to take part in some way, shape or form.  We need more events like this to spread the message, to every tall girl and woman on this earth, that tall is beautiful!

Let's keep this going.  How are you going to spread the message?

Blue Beauty

I have two words for you: SHIRT DRESS.  Yes, there is one that is long enough for us and it happens to come in a beautiful royal blue color. 

It's the Long Tall Sally Long Line Shirt Dress and I am obsessed!  You are not seeing things.  It's true and I have the review to prove it.  Check it out!

LONG LINE SHIRT DRESS from $85. Sizes 6-18.Don't forget to buy accessories!  Long Tall Sally has those too.  Check out the bangles I'm wearing in the video HERE. They go perfectly with the dress. Just enough blue to compliment it but not enough to be matchy, matchy.

8 PACK BANGLES IN SILVER/TURQUOISE. $25. Also comes in the GOLD/IVORY option below.
