No Tears Here

I’m pretty sure this is the trifecta of length. Like who has long enough sleeves on their sweater, jeans (I swear they are long enough and it’s not the good ol’ cover the gap up with the boot trick:) and boots that are really over the knee??

This tall girl, that’s who!

And you can too!

This sweater though! It has the bell sleeves and they dang near go down to my knees. To say that I am infatuated by this sweater is an understatement and guess where it’s from? Boohoo. They have a tall line and I can’t even lie…I was suspect at first. Would it be long enough? Would it fall apart at those price points? The answer was very positive for both. As you can see, the arms are mad long and so far nothing has fallen apart. I have only tried out the tops, but me likey. I have this sweater and a nude bodysuit that I wore on my birthday. The price points were awesome because I got them on a flash sale. They have them all of the time so make sure to look out for them.

Now…ya’ll  know that I’m a rider for Smash Shoes. These boots are ev-a-ree-thang! They are comfortable to walk in (major key) and really hit over the knee. Now…don’t hurt me but they appear to be sold out now (except for size 12 in the grey option) but check out their full line and sign up for their emails for a first look at their new styles as they come in.

Last, but certainly not least are the skinnies. They are from newcomer Doubs Clothing. They come in 34”- 38” inseam. I love the stretch and they have an ankle detail that you can see by clicking here. I still don’t know how to pronounce their name correctly however I know the jeans fit correctly and that’s what matters my friends;)

Our choices have certainly gotten better will continue to get better. I will steady share every tall style ting I find and experience. I’m here for you girl!

Click Play: #TTYA4LTS Summer Range

Hey Now!

Today I bring you 2 amazing things...

First, my full video review on the #TTYA4LTS Summer range! You already know that I love it but now see the capsule collection in motion. Click play for all of the juicy, style details.

Second, I have decided to post more videos just like this one on my new Youtube account so make sure you subscribe. There will be lookbooks, reviews, haul videos and much, MUCH more.

I hope you are just as excited about both of these as I am. Please let me know what you think of the #TTYA4LTS Summer range, what you want to see on my YouTube Channel and anything else your tall heart desires:)

Seeing Red

Spring is definitely peeking though (and we love her) but until she is here for good, I have been spending the last chilly days I have in casual chic style.

I will always rock a fierce heel but when I work a lot (which seems like always nowadays), I tend to gravitate towards low-key looks in my downtime.

Today's outfit is a perfect example of casual meeting chic. It's completely comfy with an edge. The longline vest (which can be dressed up or down), gives the all black a pinch of drama and the pop-of-red Jordans pull the whole look together. The oversized clutch really wasn't strategically planned. I simply picked it because a bag wouldn't flow but I had a lot of stuff to carry that day. 

Now you may notice that I am wearing my trusty Long Sleeve Jersey Body from the TTYA x Long Tall Sally collection and that is because I wear it with everything! It's one of those famed, basic pieces that you can layer with pieces that are not necessarily tall (like the longline vest). Invest in the basics and you will unlock a whole new wardrobe!

So that's my version of casual-chic dahling...what do you rock in your downtime beautiful?

INSIDE OUT

Some women believe the lie that you must wear as little clothing as possible to be sexy...this is so incredibly far from the truth.

Now, there may be those times where a little dress or short shorts are appropriate (you have seen me and will see me wear both on this blog) but you don't have to show skin to be sexy. Showing the silhouette of your figure underneath chic threads can be one of the sexist statements you could make.

Take this fit. Everything is covered and nothing is tight but I will challenge anyone who tells me it's not hot. It's layers, oversized fit and delicate body chain all create a balanced look that is comfy-haute. The trick is to not go too oversized. If the clothing gets too frumpy you will get totally lost in it. You always, in any situation, want to wear the clothes and neva eva eva eva let them wear you.

More importantly YOU supersede any piece of clothing that you can put on. I don't care how amazing the piece is, if you do not feel good...nothing will look good. Stand tall, embrace everything that makes you beautiful and always shine from the inside out.
