Studying my Closet – 4 Items to Buy in 2017

Do you ever stand in your closet and stare at your clothes? I know this probably sounds kind of weird and I don’t typically make a habit of it, but I found myself doing so the other day. I wanted to study the items in my closet that I find myself reaching for again and again when it’s time to get dressed so that I can figure out what I should buy this year. Here are a few things I noticed… I’m loving button-ups lately (and bonus points if they have patterns or texture!) I used to think buttons-up shirts were stuffy and […]

J.Crew Majesty Peacoast for tall women

Cold Weather Favorites and Life Lately

As you can see, my late summer break that I took in September turned into a full blown blogging sabbatical. Oops! I’ve had a bit of difficulty getting back into the swing of blogging the past couple of months for a few reasons and decided I’d quickly catch you up on what’s been going down and what I’ve been thinking. Buckle your seatbelt since this is a bit long. First, I just feel like such a busy bee between my part-time job, my volunteer work, my German lessons, managing our household, traveling and maintaining some semblance of a social life. I’m […]

Outfits for July 4th

Red White and Blue – 5 Outfits for July 4th!

Although I think it’s a fabulous color combo, I don’t often wear red, white and blue together. I’m not sure why considering I have tons of blue and white in my closet, along with a couple of fun pops of red.  While this is not one of my go-to color palettes, I ALWAYS look forward to putting together a red white and blue outfit for the 4th of July. Since starting my Thoughtful Shopping Series, I have been trying to make do more and more with what is already in my closet as opposed to shopping a ton. I had […]

Workwear for tall women - Long Tall Sally

Workwear for Tall Women (And Life Lately)

You may have noticed that things have been a wee bit quiet around the blog of late and I have 2 reasons for that: 1) I started a new job at the beginning of the month; and 2) I’ve had a somewhat entertaining round of bad luck trying to get some outdoor outfit photos. First, the bad luck! I have an outfit that I really want to show you and have tried and utterly failed on 3 different occasions to get photos of it outdoors. I wore it one day on our recent trip to France only to discover that […]

Talltique Layering Tee – 4 Ways

A few years ago, I probably wouldn’t have given a layering tee much thought or attention in the outfit creation department. But if there’s one thing I’ve learned from my Project Remix experiment, it’s to analyze all of the different possible ways an item of clothing can be worn. I love when fellow 6’2er Adrienne from The Rich Life on a Budget does posts on different looks she has created from one simple “base” outfit. Inspired, I decided to give it a try using my trusty J.Crew black jeans, Aquatalia waterproof boots and new Talltique layering tee. I’ve had this […]

Long Tall Sally Review

Long Tall Sally Review! Spot Bow Blouse and Stitch Graphic Tunic

Remember my Long Tall Sally spot bow blouse and stitch graphic tunic that I sported during my trip to Vienna? Well I’ve been playing dress up with them and wanted to show you some fun ways to wear these items that Long Tall Sally kindly gifted me! LTS Chunky Stitch Graphic Tunic (c/o) Size: Small Fit: The tunic is loose enough to be able to wear a fitted long-sleeve layering tee underneath (making it perfect for chilly weather), but not so loose that it looks saggy baggy. I’m very happy with the fit! Special Details: The texture of the thick white thread woven […]

How to wear a white lace top

4 Ways to Wear a White Lace Top

Oh lace! You get me every time. Ever since my very first purchase in the form of a beautiful lace dress in NYC 3 years ago, I’m always on the prowl for other lace pieces. I love lace so much that I wish my husband would agree to let us have another wedding so that I can buy a lace wedding dress! Something tells me that’s not going to happen, so I will just continue to fill my closet with lace tops, skirts, dresses…you get the idea. Since I was in the market for a dressy neutral top, I was thrilled when […]

Black business suits for tall women

Business Suits for Tall Women (and How I Cheated on my Tall Specialty Shop Challenge)

A few weeks ago, I unexpectedly received an invitation to interview for a job.  I foolishly assumed that my black pant suit was in the closet and ready to go.  The jacket was there but the pants I normally wear were nowhere to be found. Yikes!  I rifled through my closet and found two more pairs of black dress pants. Phew! It seemed like I was in luck….or was I? I normally wear heels with my suits when interviewing (because nothing makes an initial impression quite like a 6’5 woman waltzing into a conference room), but I decided to wear these Tory Burch pointed […]

HOT Summer Vacation Style

As a total sweaty Betty, I always have to dress rather strategically in sweltering conditions to disguise the party that my sweat glands inevitably throw (even when I’m not exerting myself in the least).    Mr. L3 and I will be headed to Italy next month which may sound grand and glamorous, but the temps will be well into the 90s F/30s C and I’m going to MELT which is not so grand and glamorous.  Even though the trip is still a ways off, I’ve been fussing over what to pack. I’ve decided that linen and 100% cotton are my […]

Tall formal gowns

5 Tips for Tall Women on Finding Long Formal Dresses

How do you feel when you get invited to a dressy event?  If you’re like me, you get a surge of panic, sprint to your closet and frantically rummage through your dresses to see if you have anything remotely suitable and long enough. Why the surge of panic?  Well, formal dresses for tall women seem to be a bit hard to come by.  If I’m going to wear a long gown, of course I want it to sweep the floor (or at least get reasonably close to the floor).  I definitely DON’T want to look like I’m ready to go […]
