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 Elegant Legs Review Tall Sweater

Tall Textured Sweater – Long Elegant Legs Review

I’ve been having really fantastic luck with the Long Elegant Legs fall collection.  As part of my Tall Specialty Shop Challenge, I recently purchased three items from LEL, and I’m really excited by how nicely they all play together.  Take the gray Olivia sweater that I’m reviewing today for instance.  You already got a peek at it when I wore it under my Long Elegant Legs ruana wrap.  I’ve also been wearing this textured sweater layered over button-up shirts like my LEL tall chambray top as shown in Long Elegant Legs’ Top Looks page. Speaking of “top looks”, make sure you check out the LEL […]

How to wear a ruana wrap

Cozy Chic! Echo Ruana Wrap From Long Elegant Legs

Every now and again, I try to push myself out on a fashion limb by buying something out of my comfort zone.  That’s what I did when I bought the Echo New York ruana wrap from Long Elegant Legs as part of my Tall Speciality Shop Challenge.  When I first saw the cozy, blankety looking ruana wraps on LEL’s website, I thought “Hmmm…rrrrrruuuuuannnaaa! That’s kind of fun to say but what the heck is it”?  According to my research assistants Googs and Wiki, a ruana is a poncho-ish garment typically found in the Andes region of Venezuela and Columbia used not only as […]

Another Tall Blogger Meet-Up!

One of the things I love about traveling around Europe is getting the chance to meet up with tall blogger friends!  The husband and I took our first trip to the UK last weekend and, while we had a jam-packed schedule of sightseeing, I was thrilled that I was able to carve out a few hours to meet  Sara from Girl in the Pretty Dress and Laura from All the Tall Things.  I was equally thrilled that both Sara and Laura were game to take time out of their schedules to meet up (especially since Sara had to get up at the […]

BR Tall Trench Coat

Tall Trench Coat From Banana Republic

I really need to stop devouring food from outdoor markets whilst wearing my nice coats. I’ve had my tall trench coat from Banana Republic for years and have worn it all over the world from Asia to Europe to the U.S.  I love the way I feel in it – the way the belt perfectly defines my waist, the longggggg sleeves, the smart collar – it’s a classic and classy wardrobe staple!  Today, I managed to get a grease stain on my trench while eating a to-die-for grilled cheese at an outdoor food market, and I’m not sure if I’ll be […]

Majesty Peacoat Review

J.Crew Majesty Peacoat – My Cool Weather BFF

Raise your hand if you enjoy this time of year because you get to peruse all of your coats that have been tucked away at the back of the closet for spring and summer!  I’m not sure why tall coats thrill me so much but it’s probably because I never really had the chance to wear them when I lived in California so I still find them quite novel. This will be my third year wearing my trusty tall J.Crew Majesty peacoat.  I was looking through some old photos the other day and realized that this coat has been my cool weather […]

How to style ankle boots

4 Ways to Wear Chelsea Ankle Boots

I’ve been hesitant to try flat ankle boots for fear that my size 11 feet would look like massive, manly leather-covered blobs. When Long Tall Sally kindly let me pick a couple of fall items to try, the classic brown Chelsea boot caught my eye and I decided it was high time I conquered my fear of ankle boots.  When I opened the shoe box, I gave the somewhat large looking boots a dubious glance.  Slowly and suspiciously, I took them out and put them on, felt how comfortable they were, admired how classy they looked and realized that my preconceived notion about […]

LEL Tall Chambray Shirt

Tall Chambray Shirt – Long Elegant Legs Review

I’m a bit late to the chambray party but now that I’ve bought my first piece I think I’m hooked!  As part of this year’s Tall Specialty Shop Challenge, I bought the tall chambray shirt from Long Elegant Legs, and I pretty much want to wear it every day.  The 100% cotton fabric is wondrously soft and lightweight which makes it perfect for late summer and early fall. The length of the shirt is just right so that it doesn’t look sloppy when worn untucked (but is also long enough to easily tuck in).  Sometimes, LEL styles seem to run a bit large and […]
