Women’s Extra Long Jumpsuit – Styled 2 Ways

When I came across this extra long jumpsuit from Height Goddess, I did a happy dance! {insert heel click} So many of us tall women will love it!  No worries about the torso being long enough, as Height Goddess specializes in designing for tall women! Plus, you even get to choose your inseam length – in 36″, 38″, or 40″ inseam lengths.  It’s available in timeless black or fire engine red! The only problem with this jumpsuit, is that it won’t be delivered until 6/25. 🙁

This tall jumpsuit is extremely versatile and I’ve created two looks, one for a daytime garden party and one for an evening wedding reception.

Volkswagen Up! Advertisement Featuring a Tall Woman

Let’s face it there aren’t many commercials featuring tall women unless

a. they over overly sexualized   or
b. they are making fun of us.

But, I have to give kudos to Volkswagen as their new commercial for the Volkswagen Up is super cute. Take a look!

For the Ladylike Mom

 

gifts for tall moms

I love this look! If your mom is prim and proper, this may be up her alley.  I love the classic and pretty lines of the blazer, the not-too-blingy pearl studs, the bows and the patent leather of the flats, and of course the pop of color in that darling clutch-which by the way proves that mom doesn’t take herself too seriously!

For the On the Go Mama

I’ve featured this jacket before but couldn’t resist featuring it again.  For the on the go mom, a stylish and comfy jacket is essential.  Paired with this fabulous watch (because you know-she needs to keep her appointments), the fun and colorful iPad case, and the fresh mint comfy kicks, it’s even more amazing than on its own!

LOFT Tall Corded Dobby Striped TrenchKate Spade New York – Metro (Gold/Black Dot) Watch.    LeSportsac Handbag, iPad Sleeve CrossbodyKeds – Champion Seasonal Brights (Teal Canvas). Up to size 11. And because I’m indecisive another iPad cover (not pictured): Kate spade New York iPad Sleeve – Le Pavillion (black and white polka dot)

For the New Mommy

Do you have a new mama in your life?  Maybe your wife, daughter, daughter-in-law, sister, or BFF?  These pieces are perfect for a new mommy.  The pants couldn’t look more comfortable (but still cute) and she’ll thank you for those velvety flip flops when she’s pacing with baby at 2:00 am.  Have the pretty necklace personalized with the new babe’s name and she just might tear up!  And isn’t it great that diaper bags aren’t covered with pictures of Winnie the Pooh anymore?!  I have a Skip Hop bag (2 actually) and I love them!  This one is stylish but with dots in grey, classic enough that it would suit nearly any taste.
