Sometimes I feel like I spend so much time buying work garb that I neglect my weekend wardrobe. In keeping with my current skirt kick, I bought this printed skirt from Old Navy. It’s not from ON’s tall line BUT the waist is elastic so you can basically ride the skirt as low or as high as you want. BUY IT NOW…YOU WON’T REGRET IT. It’s SUPER comfortable, the navy with the orange flowers are right in line with my Project Remix colors and it can easily go into fall paired with boots and a jacket. I need to find a wide brown belt and maybe a nice white tee to wear with it but for now, I’ve been wearing a white tank and sandals (because the weather has not received the memo that it’s supposed to be curtains for summer and fall should be taking center stage at this point).
Another casual-ish item that I bought is this Old Navy tall crepe-pocket tank. I first spied it on Tiffany while reading one of her articles on TallSnob.com. I need stuff that I can just throw on when I’m running weekend errands, but I don’t want to just throw on any ole top and end up looking like a frumpster (especially since I run into coworkers ALL the time when I’m out running errands). This top is just the ticket for weekend errand running – it’s flowy and loose (translation – comfortable) without looking frumpy, and I like that it’s a bit longer in the back. The collar and neckline are somewhat fussy and don’t want to lay right, but it’s a keeper for the price. Speaking of price, this color is currently on sale for $7!!!!!!!! And other colors are on sale for $10. It also passes the Project Remix test of “can I belt it, tuck it, layer it etc.?”, and I can technically wear it to work layered under cardigans or blazers. Speaking of Project Remix, I have a VERY liberal definition of my color palette. In my mind, this top is kinda sorta teal (I know I know…it’s mint not teal but – hey – close enough)!
Have you had any luck with Old Navy’s tall line lately? It’s very hit or miss for me but I’m seeing several more skirts I might need want.
