Mens Tall Camo Chinos

When I came across this pair of Levi’s tall camo chino pants, I knew many of you would love them. But, these aren’t your cargo pocket type of camo pants. They are actually chinos- more like Dockers.  They are available in either a 34″ or 36″ inseam length with waists from 28″ -42″.

Diary of a Tall Fashionista & 3 Tall Skirts Review

I recently had a birthday – yep it was a big one. I’m officially 40.  That hurts to even write it.  At the beginning of the year, I created myself a vision board on Pinterest. I got the idea for the vision board from Jack Canfield’s “The Success Principles“. You see the past few years have been really tough {read about them here}. So when 2013 came around, I was excited for all of the new possibilities and ready to be “Fab at 40”.

One thing I put on my vision board was that I wanted to spend my 40th birthday in Hawaii or similar.  A month after creating the vision board, we got incredible news that my husband’s company was sending us to the Bahamas. I couldn’t believe it! It was a month before my birthday, but hey, beggars can’t be choosers! So in May we spent 4 fabulous days at the Atlantis resort and we lived it up! I don’t think Mr. Tall & I have laughed that hard in such a long time. It’s was absolutely incredible and I was thrilled that the vision board worked!

When my birthday rolled around, Mr. Tall had an out of town business trip. My teenage boys spoiled me with flowers and a cake.  The day was low key, but I went on a major shopping spree from the comfort of my home.   It was so much fun! The items are arriving daily. I think I ordered about 18 items. So far I’ve only had to send back 4 items. I jokingly told Mr. Tall – that I ordered 40 items – 1 for each year. He almost passed out.  He doesn’t realize that I can be quite the bargain shopper.  Plus, I just so happen to know a special sort of online shopping mall for tall people. It’s research, right? {wink, wink}

So for today I want to show you 3 skirt from Boden that I purchased and love. In case you don’t know, most of Boden’s dresses and skirts come in “long sizes” with added length.

Riviera Tall Skirt

This Riviera skirt come in 4 colors – I chose the a navy color as it reminds me of  waves and I can get away with wearing it with nautical accessories. The skirt is lined, but will need ironing. The length hits me right below my knees and I like the slight fullness of it.

Jersey Maxi Skirt

Next, I am really pleased with this tropical maxi skirt. I have a 35″ inseam and it actually hits me at the bottom of my feet. Yeah! I’ve been looking for a printed maxi skirt for a while and this one also satisfies my love of all things tropical. I plan on wearing this with just a basic t-shirt for casual days when I’m out running earrands.

Modern Pencil Skirt

The last skirt is a modern pencil skirt. I like it, but I don’t love it.  It’s made of high quality material and is lined and the skirt hits me at the knee, but I feel like it should be a tad bit tighter. Must be all the working out I’m doing.  So I will be sending this item back.

So that’s it for today, I will be showing you more items I purchased over on Tall Snob in a few days.

Sleeping Bags for Tall People

It’s Summer and it’s time to get out and enjoy the great outdoors. We love camping – but I’m not a rough-it kind of girl. Thankfully our Winnebago keeps me comfy enough and safe. I grew up as a farm girl and I feel like I’ve earned my right to camp in style.  Okay, I admit it I’m a wimp!

The only thing worse than rainy camping weather is climbing into a short sleeping bag. You have the struggle between straightening your legs and having half of your shoulders exposed, or bending your legs (if they all fit in the sides) to keep your neck and face warm.  So, I’m hear to offer you solutions so your feet don’t poke a hole out of the end of your sleeping bag.

 

Sleeping Bags in Longer Lengths:




Enjoy the outdoors! I hope you get to go somewhere fabulous. I would love to hear about your adventures.

Cool Men’s Tall Sport Shirts for Summer

It’s Summer and we know you love to run around in t-shirts and shorts. However, many of you have jobs that require you to dress per the work dress code.  These jobs can require you to wear anything from casual to full business suits.  If you fit this category, sometimes you can get away with wearing a semi-casual shirt as long as your pants are a bit dressier. If you’re tired of the white button-up shirt, we’ve found you some cool tall sport suits that you may be able to wear to work.

Cool Long Board Shorts

I’m getting lots of requests for help in finding long board shorts. Why are board shorts so great? They are longer length than other styles of swimsuits and flatter long legs. Plus, many styles of board shorts are stylish enough to wear as everyday shorts. When you get the urge to cool off in the pool, no need to waste moments changing your clothes, just dive right in! Here are some of the newer styles that we think are ultra-cool!
