SIMPLICITY

Chile…it’s spring! But the weather is going bananas. It doesn’t know what it wants to do. Make up your mind already!

I am really looking forward to warmth and the feel of the sun on my face but right now spring still has some winter tendencies. Thus, I split the difference with this outfit.

I threw in a little sweater action with some shorter sleeves. It’s warm for the morning chill but still works if the weather decides that it wants to change. The tall skinnies (crazy good right!?) also cover most of the leg but have the rip at the knee that provides a little air conditioning (ok…I know I’m stretching it a little here:).

The piece de resistance are these boots! I am in LOVE. Now…I am trying to buy less things (which we will talk about in another post) but when I saw these, I decided to treat myself. When you find a green boot in our size, you add them to the collection hunni! They are just the right color green, a soft suede and a bootie that doesn’t cut the leg but rather elongates it. You can wear these with pretty much everything, in every season! Did I mention that they come in sizes 11-14 and in a blush option? And all the tall girls did the happy dance!

Overall, this outfit really reflects where my personal style is morphing into...simplistic. Simplicity is key for me right now. I'm tired over overthinking. I want a wardrobe of pieces that are fiercely simple. This look definitely holds that title.

One thing about style is that it is ever evolving. You have the freedom and ability to change it not only for a season, but for a lifetime. Do what you do when you want to. Style is yours. Own it! 

Cuffing Season

Just in case you didn't know...it's cuffing season (insert your favorite love emoji here). And currently I am cuffed all the way up with something warm, soft and just my type. Introducing my boo...

The CURATD x LTS Heavy Turtle Neck Knit (swoon)

I be cuddled up in this thang all day long. It's seriously an amazing sweater from an amazing collection. Listen...tell me the last sweater you had with pockets!?! My mind is completely blown. You KNOW how I feel about pockets. It was clearly meant to be.

I paired it with the CURATD X LTS 7/8 Raw Frayed Jeans that go with everything and have just the right amount of stretch. They hit right at the ankle and although you can't see it in these photos, the frayed hem is sublime.

Last but certainly not least are the LTS Lexie Over The Knee Boots that are...wait for it...actually over the knee!!! Go ahead. You can squeal. I do every time I put them on.

I love this look but trust me...stay tuned...because part 2 of the CURATD collection is coming soon and I can't wait to show it to you!

Until then mon cheri...

I feel like winter just dropped in on us all at once. It went from a long t-shirt type of season to give me all of the layers you can and add a scarf situation. It's times like these where you need a fierce sweater and the chunky oversized sweater definitely fits the bill. 

This Tall gem is one of those pieces that looks amazing but feels like you are wearing pajamas all day. Seriously, you feel like you are cuddled up in a blanket. The arm length is great (no cold wrists) and the body length is actually a proper tunic length.

Can we talk about the price for a minute. OK...so you know how most manufacturers add a katrillion dollars for every inch they add to a garment? Not THE HEIGHT. This sweater is only $50 which is a great price for all of that Tall sweater goodness.

I added some leather look leggings and my new converse babies to complete this look but you can rock some skinny jeans, a skirt, wide leg pants...really anything goes with this haute sweater.

Well...I really have nothing else to say about this FAB sweater so...until next time my Tall lovelies!

Holiday Height

Can you believe it's November 2nd!?! Well, it is and guess what that means...the holidays are right around the corner! It's time to get festive and I have partnered with THE HEIGHT to show you 2 amazing tall dresses for your holiday soirees.

Today's look is for the casual get-together, candle light service, tree decorating party and the list goes on and on. Obviously this tall sweater dress can worn throughout fall and winter months but the vibrant red, midi length and the actually long enough sleeves make this dress perfect for the holiday season. 

So red isn't your thing? Never fear. THE HEIGHT had the same exact dress in blue and olive at the same wonderful price point of $52.

I paired the sweater dress with these killer patent ankle boots from Long Tall Sally, some tights and a faux leather vest but you can wear it by itself with some flats, throw a blazer on with some basic black pumps or even throw on a long line vest with some lace-up boots...there are a plethora of ways to rock this tall dress.

So now that your casual holiday dress is taken care of, it's time for the fancy smancy fit. I have one on the way. Stay tuned to TallSWAG to see my pick. HINT: It's a show stopper!

Hello Beautiful! It's been quite awhile since my last post. My bad. Life has been crazy. I have an amazing project that I have been working on (that I can't quite talk about yet) and the Playoffs (Go Warriors!) are right around the corner so I have been slammed. Please know that I missed you every moment I was away!

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I raved about the H&M New Neutrals line. I love a great neutral and all of the pieces (which flew off the shelves) were right up my alley. I went to the store the day they were released and of course most of the options didn't fit BUT they had this amazing sweater that did. It's super comfy but has side detailing that makes the sweater polished. It has short sleeves, which make it a great option for us and also a surprisingly long body. I know I say it time and time again but it's a testament to the fact that you must try things on.

I put on a form fitting skirt to balance out the silhouette and threw on my babies...the Rollie from Smash Shoes. Side Note: Smash Shoes just came out with an over the knee boot in sizes 10-13 which you will see in a future post so stay tuned. And last but not least, I added one of my fav trends this season, a bag in a bag! You can bring all of your stuff in the bigger bag or put the essentials in the smaller bag and keep it movin...a Tall Girl loves her some options!

It's great seeing you again:-) Have a great day Luv...Stand Tall in everything you do!
