Weekend Tall Casual

It’s Halloween weekend.  Anyone have any fun plans? I’m heading to a Garth Brooks concert tonight and then we’re doing traditional trick-or-treating with the kids tomorrow.  It’s going to be a busy weekend.  I would love you to share your Halloween pictures on our Facebook page if you’ve dressed up in any funny ways.

Today’s outfit for big and tall guys is great for weekend fun.  Dress in layers this time of the year to stay warm.

Tall Sateen Pants Review + Outfit Inspiration

I typically think of colored bottoms as a summer trend.  But I just bought a pair of perfect-for-fall colored tall sateen pants and I had to share.  Even though the tall items can be hit or miss, this partner store is still my favorite.  You can’t beat the prices and they have the biggest selection of budget friendly tall clothing.  

 

Pros

1. I was happy to find that these jeans were plenty long enough.  Even if I was an inch or two taller they’d work (I’m 6’0″ with a 35 inch inseam).

2. They run true to size. This could actually be a con because this style of pant typically runs small so I ordered up a size which wasn’t necessary. If you’re on the fence, go with the smaller size.

3. They come in great fall colors, although they are selling out quickly!

4. They are soft and comfortable and have a higher than average rise (I’m SO over panty peek).

5. They wash well.

Cons

 

1. I wish they were a little more structured.  The “sateen” in the title is fitting.  They’re not shiny but definitely more of a pant than a jean.

2. They stretch a bit over the course of a day.  Again, if you’re between sizes, size down.

That’s it.  The pros definitely outweigh the cons for me.  Now take a look at the outfit I created with them:tall rose pants1.   2.   3.   4.   5.   6.*

Stand Up Desks for Tall People

I’m coming up on my 8th year of blogging and I’m realizing just how important it is to get up and walk around often.  Sitting all day, is bad for my health. My mom had chronic blood clots which led her to have several strokes.  This summer my dear mother passed away from another blood clot. It’s been a very difficult few months and I miss my mom dearly.  I’m worried that myself and my siblings may be pre-disposed to blood clots.  It stinks!

This issue has been foremost on my mind lately and I’m evaluating everything I do in life to create a healthier life.  I need to change lots of things.  In my research, I’ve found that stand up desks can help prevent blood clots. I believe that I will be more apt to stretch, squat and move more while standing. Burning a few extra calories a day is also a bonus.  I’d love to hear any feedback from you if you have a stand up desk.   Do you actually use it? Do you feel better?

 

I don’t have one of these desks yet, but here are my top picks:

 adjustable standing desk tall

Black Adjustable Standing Desk – Can hold 2 monitors. Adjusts up to 47 1/4″.

varidesk for tall people

Varidesk adjusts to 11 settings. Their tallest desk for people over 6’1″ tall.

stand up desks for tall people

Premium Desks – Adjusts up to 50″

turn your desk into a stand up desk

Turn any surface into a stand up desk – adjustable from 11″ to 17″.

Do you use a stand-up desk?  Leave me a comment. I’d love to hear if it’s made a difference in your health.

Plus Size Tunics for Tall Women

Today’s roundup is of plus size tunics, blouses and sweaters. It is rare to find actual plus sizes in tall, so we have to look around and see what we can adapt to our wardrobe.  3/4 sleeve tunics work well and I acknowledge that some of the items below with long sleeves will not be long enough.  Pushing up the sleeves is allowed.
