4 Days in the Scottish Highlands - Bealach na Ba road

4 Days in the Scottish Highlands – Tall Travel Style

If you read my posts about Copenhagen, then you know that I was determined not to travel anywhere even remotely hot this summer. I would say we definitely succeeded in beating the heat this summer since the weather in Copenhagen was certainly pleasant and the weather during our 4 days in the Scottish Highlands was borderline chilly. The scenery in the Highlands was truly some of the most dramatic and breathtaking landscapes I’ve ever seen. Part of the charm is how uninhabited the area is with the primary residents appearing to be sheep and cows. Our original plan was to stay somewhere different […]

Cycling to dinner in Copenhagen

Tall Travel Style – Cycling Around Copenhagen

The highlight of our trip to Copenhagen was being able to ride bikes EVERYWHERE. We rented bikes on the afternoon of our first day in town and kept them for the next 3 days. The bike lanes are super roomy and all over town making it very convenient and safe to get places. Being so active every day made me feel quite energized. I think it was a combo of the exercise, the breeze in my hair, the unpredictability of when we might get rained on and the thrill of exploring a new city. Read below for my adventures cycling around Copenhagen.

Tall Travel Style – Copenhagen Day 1

Last July, we spent 10 days in Italy and it was beautiful but SO miserably hot! This year, we wised up and went north to Copenhagen which proved to be a fabulous decision since temps never rose above 72F/22C! I feel positively rejuvenated after spending the last 3 days in this amazing city with its gentle sunshine, nice breezes, beautiful waterways, bright buildings, friendly locals and amazing food. Today is the 1 year anniversary of my relaunch of my website under the Tall Fashion Adventures name, so I figured what better way to celebrate than to write about one of my new […]

Tall Travel Style – Mosel River

Ahhhh….summer road trips! One of my favorite things. The husband and I jetted off to the beautiful Mosel wine region of Germany and had an amazing time driving along the river between the tiny, picturesque villages, taking in the dramatic vineyard views and checking out the wine scene. I wasn’t super motivated to pack for this trip so I just threw some stuff in a suitcase and hoped I would be able to look semi-decent each day. And unfortunately I forgot my favorite everyday rose gold necklace and earrings so I felt quite naked in the accessories department! Here are […]

Tall Travel Style – France! Lake Annecy and Burgundy

For the past several months, the husband and I have been planning a grand European adventure for our goods friends from the U.S. I already shared about our first stop in Piedmont Italy. Our next stop was the beautiful Lake Annecy in the French Alps! We had never been there before, but I had been dying to go after seeing some photos on various travel blogs. It did not disappoint! Our final stop was the small town of Beaune in Burgundy which we had been to last year.  Truth be told, I did a pretty terrible job of getting outfit photos on […]

Tall Travel Style – Piedmont Italy (Take 2)

For the past several months, the husband and I have been planning a grand European adventure for our goods friends from the U.S. We loved Piedmont Italy SO much last year that we made that our first stop. While I didn’t get photos of ALL of my outfits because I was more focused on enjoying quality time with our friends, I did manage to snap a few outfit photos. Read on to see my tall travel style and, of course, some travel photos as well. Activity: Private wine and food tour in Piedmont with the fabulous Anna from Italianna  What I […]

Tall bomber jacket from Talltique

Tall Bomber Jacket – Out and About

Sometimes, I buy an item and am so caught up with “new buyer’s giddiness” that I don’t see any of its faults. Then, once the glitz and glam of the newness wears off, I realize that the item is not as good as I first thought it was. That’s certainly NOT the case with my tall bomber jacket from Talltique. I’ve had this super fun faux leather jacket a little over a year and am still very much head over heels for it. I still marvel at how long the sleeves are, love the fit and am also thrilled with how soft and easy to […]

Barcelona! Tall Blogger Meet-Up and Tall Travel Style

It’s official! Barcelona is my new favorite European city! The weather, friendly people, laid back vibe, beautiful and interesting architecture, amazing food and easy access to the beach all make me want to pack up and move there. It was super fun taking a break from my winter garb and putting together springy outfits for the 50-70F/10-21C weather. Ditching the cold, dreary winter weather for bright blue skies, plentiful sunshine and warm temps was just what I needed to allay my winter doldrums. Plus, I was able to arrange another tall blogger meet-up! Read on to get all the details! Activity: […]

Tall Travel Style – Vienna

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a Tall Travel Style entry but the series is back with my first trip of 2016 – a long weekend trip to Vienna. I honestly didn’t have high expectations for Vienna. I knew I’d probably like it but we’ve seen a lot of big European cities in the last year and many of them have similar characteristics, so I was wondering if it would just be more of the same. I’m happy to say that Vienna far exceeded my expectations – the beautiful architecture around literally every corner, the amazing food, the elegance and old world charm, […]

Lo & Sons OG Review – The Best Travel Tote!

It’s no secret that I love to travel.  Two years ago, I was planning for a week long visit to Asia and I began scouring the internet for the perfect travel tote with the hopes that I could get away with only taking carry-on luggage.  After hours of research, I ordered the Lo & Sons O.G. tote bag.  I am happy to say that between this bag and a roller suitcase, I have avoided checking any bags on several flights thus saving me tons of time and money.  After two years of carting this bag around 3 continents and numerous countries, […]
