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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

Long Tall Sally Review: Tassels and Lace!

Tassels, lace and pintucks! Oh my! I’ve found the perfect, pretty travel top for fall and not only is it comfy but it also has fabulous  eye-catching details.  Long Tall Sally kindly gifted me this lovely tunic, and I happily took it for a spin this weekend to see how well it would hold up whilst traveling on the train to and from the Rhine River. When I travel, I always keep two things in mind: 1) comfort 2) style Under #1, I would also add stipulation 1(a) which states that my top must be long enough to avoid any flashing of my knickers at […]

Tall Shopping Trip Part 2 – Review of LTS Button-Up Mixed Print Maxi

Since it’s the end of July, it’s high time I review one of my Tall Speciality Shop Challenge purchases from June.  I already shared my mom’s fabulous finds from our Long Tall Sally shopping spree and now it’s my turn. My main shopping mission was to find a couple of wear-anywhere-in-sweltering-weather dresses for my hot summer vacation in Italy.  Of course, I had stalked the LTS website and had some ideas about what I wanted to try on when I arrived at the store. This black and white LTS mixed print button-up maxi has quickly become my summer go-to!  There is so […]

Long Tall Sally Pop-Up Review From My Mom and Sister

I’ll never forget the first Long Tall Sally pop-up shop that I went to with my sister back in 2011.  It was such a fun, exhilarating experience to browse all of the tall styles surrounded by several other fabulous tall women.  Even though I don’t live near her anymore, my 5’11 sister has continued to shop at the pop-ups and this year, she took my lovely 5’11 mom with her.  I wanted to be there shopping with them so badly!!!  Now that I’m done whining, I’ll show you their favorite buys. My sister scored this gorgeous coral lace dress and when […]

Polka Dots and Pearls – Review of Long Tall Sally Polka Dot Top

Oh polka dots…how I love thee, let me count the ways.     If you’ve been following my blog for any amount of time, it’s no secret that I adore polka dots and seem to gravitate toward the navy/white variety.  When Long Tall Sally generously offered to let me pick a few items from their spring collection to test drive and review, I knew this navy cowl neck polka dot top would fit perfectly into my Project Remix repertoire and it looks perfect with my pearl necklace. Win-win!  As usual, even though this is a sponsored post, I always share my honest […]
