Water-Resistant Double Duty Boardshorts

My teen son loves the feel of these shorts. They are made of water-resistant fabric,  so serve double duty as boardshorts and every day shorts.  Plus, they are long enough for his 36″ inseam legs.  I gave them to him for his birthday and for a kid that doesn’t get too excited about things, he really likes them.  Anything he doesn’t return these days is a huge win for me.

If you are plus size and a tall woman, when it comes to clothes shopping, you probably feel like a minority. There are lots of clothing choices for plus size women and some specialty stores carry tall women’s clothing, but put the two combinations together and your choices are limited.

Casual Wedding Dresses for Tall Women

While many of us opt for a traditional wedding dress, casual backyard weddings are all the rage. I love the thought of an informal ‘wedding dress’ adorned with a bird-cage veil or a full one, bejeweled pumps or colored ones, and vintage rhinestones or classic pearls. Here are 6 pretty white dresses for tall women that would be beautiful for a an informal wedding.
