Project Remix – 2 Year Anniversary

Remember Project Remix?    I just realized that it has been precisely 2 years since I embarked on Project Remix, and I thought it might be fun to take a walk down memory lane with some of my favorite outfits.    I can’t even tell you how thrilled I was to find Audrey’s Putting Me Together website 2 years ago. If you’ve never had a gander at Audrey’s website, DROP EVERYTHING AND DO IT NOW!  I was SO tired of standing in my closet staring at my clothes and feeling like I had NOTHING to wear.  I realized that my problem was twofold 1) […]

Denim Jacket Floral Skirt

Fun Weekend Skirt and Blouse from Old Navy

Sometimes I feel like I spend so much time buying work garb that I neglect my weekend wardrobe. In keeping with my current skirt kick, I bought this printed skirt from Old Navy.  It’s not from ON’s tall line BUT the waist is elastic so you can basically ride the skirt as low or as high as you want. BUY IT NOW…YOU WON’T REGRET IT.  It’s SUPER comfortable, the navy with the orange flowers are right in line with my Project Remix colors and it can easily go into fall paired with boots and a jacket.  I need to find […]

Animal print tall pencil skirt

Rawrrrr – Tall Animal Print Skirt from Loft (and a Search for a Tall Suit)

I’ve admired animal print pieces from afar but have only very cautiously dipped my toe into the wild world of animal print by buying a skinny belt. I love the belt and decided it was high time for some more animals in my closet.  I’ve been on a bit of a skirt buying kick lately because I know fall is coming which means BOOTS AND TIGHTS SEASON AKA the most wonderful time of the year for me (fashion-wise at least).  Loft was having one of it’s crazy 60% off everything sales a few weeks ago, so I bought these 3 […]

Fab Finds from the Hilton Head Outlets – Part 1

Mr. L3 and I decided to go on a little summer road trip July 4th week.  I had never been to the Carolinas and am trying to make it to all 50 states before I croak so off we went.  Our first stop was Asheville, NC.  We saw a lot of interesting places and ate some fabulous food, but one of my favorite activities was hiking to a few waterfalls (in my Elle Mayers tall workout tank of course…just a note that these tanks are currently on clearance for $15 plus an extra 20% off…GO GET ONE!!!).   After a […]

Navy and White Polka Dot Top – One Piece Many Ways Linkup

Audrey over at Putting Me Together is having a “One Piece Many Ways” Linkup today. Woohoo!  These are some of the photos that I featured in my guest post at but I figured it’d be fun to share them again here for the linkup.  The versatility of this navy/white custom made Capiche by Victoria polka dot top kinda knocks my socks off and makes me happy! So far, I’ve been able to wear this top with tan pants, bright orangeish pants, an orange skirt, green pants, jeans/orange blazer, jeans/brown blazer boots, a white skirt, grey pants/orange cardigan and have worn […]

Project Remix – Ann Taylor Leopard Camp Shirt 5 Ways!

As some of you may know, I regularly pretend like I’m shopping in-store in the comfort of my own home by ordering several items in various tall sizes from retailers, trying them on at home and then returning them to the store if they don’t work.  I’m pretty sure the sales folks at Banana Republic, Ann Taylor and Loft want to duck-and-cover under the counter when they see me saunter in with my online returns. I ALWAYS make a point of telling them that I have NO CHOICE but to deploy this strategy since the tall sizes are not offered […]

Project Remix Update, Neutral Accessories & Nude Hosiery!

Oops! I did it again! I neglected my blog. Life got in the way O baby. OK…I don’t think I’ll be able to write this whole post set to a Britney Spears song so I’ll quit trying.  I’ve been in the throes of a complicated move and all the annoyances thrills that come with it like hiring movers, packing, renting out our current house etc. While I have most certainly NOT let all of these obligations get in the way of my shopping, I obviously have been very neglectful in sharing my purchases with y’all. Here’s a little photo update. […]

New Tops for Project Remix – Loft and Banana Republic

Do you ever get led astray from the narrow path of tall shopping into the seemingly wonderful and varied world of non-tall shopping only to trudge to the mall with your tail between your legs to return your non-tall purchases?  That’s what happened to me the other day when I was trying to find orange/teal/navy printed tops for my Project Remix shopping list and got sucked into a good online sale by Loft.  Normally, if I’m going to buy non-tall stuff, I go do it in person to make sure it fits so I’m not quite sure WHY IN TARNATION […]
