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 […]

Visiting Bernkastel Kues

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 […]

Canals and pretty buildings in Annecy

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 […]

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 […]

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.

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 […]

MARGE Clothing Review

Tall Ethical Fashion – Blue Silk ANNI Blouse From MARGE Clothing

MARGE Clothing has been on my radar for well over a year, and I’m finally the proud owner of a lovely MARGE piece – the beautiful ANNI silk button-up blouse in poseideon blue. MARGE fills a unique void in the tall fashion world with its focus on luxurious, sophisticated apparel and ethical fashion. Since I am on the prowl for well-made investment pieces this year, I find MARGE’s vision to be quite refreshing and impressive. Keep an eye out for an in-depth behind-the-scenes look at MARGE’s production and sourcing in the near future. In the meantime, here’s a quick snapshot as to why/how MARGE fits into my Thoughtful […]

Tall off-the-shoulder top

Handmade Tall Off-The-Shoulder Top – Thoughtful Shopping Series

I’m super excited to bring you the first review in my Thoughtful Shopping Series. Remember my interview with Eryn Shields, the founder of CAS Clothing? Ever since the interview, I couldn’t stop thinking about the blue tall off-the-shoulder top with a peplum hem from CAS and just had to buy it! The main reason that my CAS Clothing top fits well with my Thoughtful Shopping Series is that it was handmade in the USA. Here are some more details: Who makes the items for CAS Clothing?  Eryn hand-makes all of the made to order (MTO) pieces and many of the in-stock pieces for […]

Thoughtful Shopping Series - Discovering where and how clothes are made

New Shopping Challenge: Thoughtful Shopping Series

If you’ve been following me for any length of time, you know that I love to impose style challenges on myself. Over the past several years, I’ve done a “Shopping Custom” challenge where I had to buy at least one custom-made item for month for 4 months, Project Remix where I focused on building a “remixable” wardrobe and my 2015 Tall Specialty Shop Challenge where I only bought items from independent tall shops for 10 months. I’ve been mulling over what my 2016 challenge should be. Since we’re rapidly approaching the halfway point of the year, I guess I should get on it, […]

Long Tally Sally Outfit - Tall Blazer, Lace Top, Chelsea Boots

My Love Affair With Tall Blazers – Long Tall Sally Riding Jacket

Some may say that blazers are for old stuffy hoity toity fuddy-duddys, but I completely disagree. Adding a blazer to any outfit ups the chic factor and gives you a more put together look. My love affair with tall blazers just won’t quit and I’m always keeping my eye out for blazers with interesting details, fabrics and colors. When I spotted the Long Tall Sally riding jacket, it ticked all three of these boxes. Interesting details? How about the subtle metallic thread running through the fabric that gives the jacket a bit of shimmer when the light hits it the […]
