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.

Big & Tall Tropical Shirts

If you’re heading to a tropical destination, be sure and take a casual big and tall tropical shirt with you as you know you probably can’t find one there in your size.  I like this Tommy Bahama shirt as I like bigger prints and it’s not obnoxious.  Choose from a reddish color or blue.  Shop now at Nordstrom.big and tall hawaiian shirt

Tall Travel Style: Hawaii Packing List

It’s not secret that I’m a travel agent.  I’ve booked trips for several of you and I’m always happy to help everyone.  Next month I’m going to Disneyland, in May I’m off to Jamaica and June is a dream trip to Hawaii.  This is going to be my year of travel.  I thought it would be fun to incorporate more travel looks into this site as travel and fashion are my passions.

I’m a Hawaii travel specialist and focus on booking trips there more than anywhere else.  So naturally, I’d like to start this series with a Hawaii packing list. What I love about Hawaii is that you literally can get by with your swimsuit and a few pairs of shorts and t-shirts.  It’s super easy to pack light.

6 Spring Trends for Tall Men

Spring is so close I can taste it! Today I want to share a handful of trends to watch for this spring.

6 spring trends for tall men

1. Distressed Denim. While this pair doesn’t have holes or rips, the fading and whiskering give a distressed look with a bit more refinement.  36 inch inseam.

2. Linen Blazer. The color on this tall version is just perfect!

3. Light or White Denim. I’m aware that this is a stretch but I don’t make up the trends; I just report them. 😉 . This pair has a 36 inch inseam (at only $40!) for all you trendy souls.

4. Slip ons. Besides being of the moment, this style of shoe is so comfortable and quick to slip on and off. My entire family wears them. This pair comes in sizes up to 15.

5. Field Jacket. This jacket comes in two colors and tall sizes. Score!

6. Tote Bags. This one is a nice size and color (dark green) and will go with business casual attire. I find tote bags to be perfect for traveling.

Which trend are you embracing for Spring?

Men’s Tall Travel Blazers

If you’re a business man, you need a go to tall travel blazer.  The requirement would be that it resists wrinkles, is made of a decent weighted fabric and washes well.  This blazer can be worn or packed in a suitcase and pulled out immediately for wear.  A blue blazer works well as you can wear it with dress pants, khakis or jeans.

Womens Tall Wrinkle Free Shirt Review

I just returned from a week in Fort Lauderdale, Florida for a travel agent conference. It was tricky to pack for the event as I left Salt Lake City in a snowstorm and I knew it would be in the 80s when I arrived. However, I was required to wear business type clothes. I also knew they were going to have air conditioning on in the conference center. So I had to order a few pieces of clothing for the conference.
I ordered these 3/4 sleeve tall wrinkle free shirts in blue and in white. The fabric felt crisp and wonderful. The buttons didn’t pop up in the chest area and the length was perfect. However, the sleeves were a little too tight at my elbow area.  So ultimately, I had to return the shirts and I was super disappointed.  In disclosure, my forearms are probably thicker than most of yours, so if this isn’t an issue for you, you’ll love these shirts.

Big & Tall Zip Up Jacket and Outfit

It’s Tall Tuesday! I’m playing catch up after returning from Cruise World travel agent training in Miami. I’m in the mood for comfy, casual clothing as I had to dress up every day last week. So today’s outfit is for tall guys and features a big & tall zip up jacket with co-coordinating items.  The soft t-shirt will feel great on your skin.

Venice Midi Skirt

I’m also a travel agent and travel themed clothes always catch my eye.   Since, I’m constantly planning out fabulous trips, I often think my brain actually thinks I’m there.  But, then I open my eyes and …. sadly, I’m still here. {No, please let me daydream so more.}

Anyway, have you seen Beth’s blog – Tall Fashion Adventures?  She takes photos in the most amazing places around Europe.  Beth is a contributor to this blog and I tell her that she’s living the life that I plan for other people.  So today’s outfit is inspired by Beth as I could see her wearing one of these scenic photo midi skirts while overlooking some fabulous place such as the Mediterranean.

Pointy Toe Flats for Tall Women

While I love rocking some heels, I don’t wear them nearly as much as I did in my 20s.  I guess I’ve grown a bit more practical in my “old age” and also find heels a tad difficult to wear when I know I’ll be on my feet for hours or will be doing a lot of walking.

So what’s a tall lady to wear when she still wants look dressy but doesn’t want to wear heels? Pointy toe flats!  These flats are the perfect alternative to heels and I love that you don’t have to sacrifice looking fancy for comfort.  You get to have the best of both worlds!

I find that I wear my pointed toe flats several times a week in the cooler months and there’s no better time to stock up on some pretty flats with fall right around the corner.  Here are a few of my favorites:
