Pretty Lace Skirt

Lace skirts are trendy and everyone is wearing them, but it’s hard to find them in longer lengths. Enter this pretty lace skirt from Modcloth. It’s the perfect knee-length for most tall women. I created you a feminine outfit to wear to work, church or date night. The nude colored accessories are a must have for everyone.

Style tip – when buying nude colored shoes, try to match them to your skin tone for gorgeous, mile long legs.

Lucky Brand Jeans for my Tall Teen Boys

My kids start school tomorrow, which means that I will be back to a regular posting schedule.  It’s been a crazy busy Summer. Today I want to share with you what jeans my picky boys like.

My tall teen boys really like the fit and feel of Lucky Brand men’s jeans.  They both have different body types.

Tall & Regular Build

My 16 year old son is 6’0″ tall and wears size 34″ x 34″. He will be around 2 inches taller next Summer after he has back surgery for scoliosis. Yep, his back is that messed up. Bummer!  Anyway, he has a huskier build than my younger son as he plays football.  The two styles of jeans he likes are :

lucky 367 vintage jeans

Vintage 367 Bootcut Jeans – (item 7M11796-P) – also in a 36″ inseam.

lucky 361 jeans for men361 Vintage Straight Leg Jeans – also in 36″ inseams

Tall & Slim Build

My 14 year old son is very tall and thin built. He wears a size 31″ x 34″ but is almost a 35″ inseam. The thing about Lucky Brand Jeans is that they are hand sewn and cut and often have varying lengths. Since we bought their jeans in a local outlet store, we were able to pull out the jeans and see which ones tend to range a little longer. The normal consensus was that the darker the wash, they tend to be cut a little longer.

lucky brand jeans for menHere are two pairs in the same size and you can see how the darker pair is much longer – like 1-1.5″ longer.  Sorry about the terrible picture quality.  So if you wear a 34.5″ inseam or 35″ inseam, some of these jeans may work. They only sell up to 34″ inseams in store and the 36″ inseams are online only!

221 original jeans 34 inseam221 Original Straight Leg Jeans  (search for 221).
The store says these are their bestselling pair.

This son also likes the 361 vintage straight leg jeans – see above.

Tall Store Spotlight – JCPenney

Today’s tall store spotlight is on JCPenney.  Have you seen their new back to school commercial? I love the tall girl in the commercial. Let’s take a look!

I can totally put myself in the place of the tall girl as I was always taller than the boys. In fact, every year for the school class pictures, I remember the photographer saying – “tall girl right here in the middle” as he stuck me on the top row right smack in the middle of the row.  I just think of it like I was the center of the universe! 🙂

Smart tall girls know they when they get to be teens they can shop at JCPenney as they have a fabulous girls tall shop and their prices are excellent!  Here’s an affordable tall outfit I put together:
