Summer Staples: Womens Tall Shorts and V-Neck Tees

True confessions! I haven’t owned a pair of shorts in years because I’ve gravitated more toward skirts and dresses for the summer.  After seeing how fabulous several other tall ladies look in shorts, I’ve decided it’s high time I try to find some for myself.

To ease myself into shorts-wearing, I’ve been keeping an eye out for some long-length shorts that fall just above the knee. These tall walking shorts from Ann Taylor seem perfect because I would be able to dress them up or down. The 98% cotton fabric is ideal for hot summer days and the 2% spandex would add to the comfort and make for a flattering fit.

For a casual look, I paired the shorts with a tall striped v-neck tee.  To add a touch of glam, I layered a couple of gold necklaces and finished off the look with a pair of gold sandals and a pretty bracelet.   I could see myself running errands in this outfit or meeting up with friends for lunch.  For a dressier look, I’d switch out the flat sandals for some high-heeled sandals or wedges and replace the t-shirt with a pretty blouse.

Based on the rave reviews of the shorts and the current sale price, they are a great find!

Mens Size 19 Sandals

I was looking through some of the search terms here on the site and noticed that I’ve had a few searches for men’s size 19 sandals.  So I set out to see if this is a hard size to find and sure enough  there aren’t a lot of pairs.   In fact, I only found these two:

Under Armour Slides – to size 20, 3 colors

mens large size sandals

Freewaters Flip-Flops to size 22

I hope there will be more of this size in the future.  You may also like our men’s shoe section.

Work it! Tall Tanks for Working Out

In order to tone up for summer, I recently started a 30-day exercise program that involves doing a workout every single day.  Yikes!  My previous workout routine only involved working out a maximum of 2-3 days per week, and I had more than enough tall activewear to support that schedule. Now that I’m exercising more frequently, I’m on the lookout for fabulous tall activewear to add to my collection.  Here are some extra-long workout tanks that have caught my eye.

How fun is the print on this tank?  Cute workout clothes motivate me to workout and this one will have me hitting the gym in no time.

This top is right on trend with its floral print, pop-of-color trim and flattering racer-back style.

Plus-size racer-back tank (Colors: Lilac, Black or White; Sizes: 1x-3x)

While this tank is not tall-sized per se, it is the same length as some of the other tall workout tanks listed in this round-up.  I really love the pretty lilac color!

High-neck tall tank (9 colors; Sizes: XS-XL)

I’m always a fan of a high-neck workout top so that I don’t have to worry about keeping everything covered while I’m bending over.  Another great
thing about this tank is that it’s two inches longer in the back so you get a little extra coverage for your backside.

Europe Guided Tours With Extra Leg Room

As your resident travel agent, I try to keep a look out for travel options for my tall friends as well as myself.  If you’re tall, there’s nothing worse that being crammed into a tour bus for two weeks where your legs don’t fit.  I know of a tour company that has taken out many rows of seats on their coaches and reconfigured them so that everyone has more leg room.  Awesome!  They only take up to 40 people on their buses, so you aren’t traveling with a massive crowd. Plus, they are one of my preferred suppliers which means great prices and amenities.

One itinerary I would love to take is the Highlight of Europe Tour – as it is a 17 day tour around Europe visiting England, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Italy, Switzerland and France.  Land only prices start at $4945 per person (based on double occupancy) for trips this Summer.

These are luxurious guided tours with stays in first class accommodations. Many meals are included and  your bags and tips are handled for you. You’ll be given headsets so that you can hear everything your local guides are teaching you while journeying to historical sites.  Shorter, longer and less expensive tours are also available.

You know me from helping you find tall clothes, but I’d also love to book your travel.  krista mayne tall travel agent

Hot Deals on Summer Staples: Tall White Button-Up Shirts

Have you looked at the tall selections on The Limited’s website recently?  I just did and was pleasantly surprised at the variety of tall blouses.  I’m always on the prowl for classic, versatile pieces and the Ashton white button-up blouse caught my eye for several reasons:

1) The blouse is offered in three different sleeve lengths (long sleeve, short sleeve and sleeveless)

2) The sizes range from XS-XXL

3) All 3 styles have good reviews

4) The attractive neckline is perfect for framing your favorite statement necklace

5) The blouse is long enough to either tuck in to pants or a skirt or to leave untucked and belted.

6) All three tops are currently 40% off bringing the price to under $30!

Long-Sleeve Style 

The long sleeves can either be worn full length or cuffed using the button tab.    If you’re looking for a button-up in other colors, look no further since this blouse is also available in 8 different hues.

Short-Sleeve Style

If you don’t like sleeveless styles but still want to stay cool in the summer, the sleeve length on this blouse might be just what you’re looking for.  I have found this type of sleeve to be quite flattering on long arms and do like that it provides more coverage than a sleeveless style.

Sleeveless Style

I used to have a similar tall sleeveless blouse and wore it year round.  In the summer, I wore it to work under a light blazer to keep from getting too cold while the office AC was blasting. For a summer weekend jaunt or a night out, I wore the blouse alone either tucked into jeans or a skirt or untucked and belted. I wore the top so much I literally wore it out so it’s high time I buy another one.
