Dressed Up Summer Casual Outfit for Tall Men

We’re in the thick of Summer and I’m happy to feature Summer outfits for a few more weeks.  Then it’s on to back to school shopping.  No!! This summer is flying by.

This outfit for tall men features longer length shorts that are both stain and wrinkle resistant, a wrinkle-free shirt and dressy Fishermen sandals. There’s many occasions to wear something like this outfit including date night and casual Fridays.

Resort Must Haves for Tall Women & Men

Written by Tiffany:

With each week that passes, we get closer and closer to the end of Winter and the beginning of Spring. It seems that just after Christmas, retailers are breaking out the Spring lines. I have mixed feelings about this time of year. On one hand I’m excited to see the new styles, bright colors, and warm weather essentials. On the other hand it’s a bit depressing to see those styles hit stores in February knowing I won’t be able to wear them for several months (or maybe even June- I do live in New Hampshire after all!). That said, my love of fashion and shopping overwhelms all other emotions. 🙂

For these reasons and others (February school vacation and/or Spring break), now is a prime time to take a vacation. Many families choose this time of year to get away to a warmer climate. It’s the perfect time because it can serve as a bridge to get over the hump of winter and carry us toward Spring and Summer. To that end, I’d love to highlight some resort wear for us tall guys and gals.

Resort Wear Must Haves For Her:

1. A beachy dress is essential. You’ll want something casual that you can throw on over a swimsuit but nice enough that you can go from the beach to a dining area in a jiffy.

2. Lightweight jacket. A denim jacket is perfect and classic. Although your destination may be warm, getting there may not be. And you might have to deal with frigid AC temps when indoors.
I love that this one comes in classic denim and white.

3. Cute hat. This one isn’t big enough to protect your shoulders from sunburn, but it will protect your scalp and nose. And it’s SO cute that it’s worth slathering on the extra SPF.

4. Scarf. I always wear or carry a scarf with me when I travel. They are so useful. It helps keep you warm on the plane, can double as a little blankie or shawl, and just makes any outfit look more chic. The Caribbean blue color of this particular scarf makes it a winning choice for a winter getaway.

5. Sandals. Duh right? I included this because it’s so tempting to bring tons of shoes but if you choose carefully you can get away with 3 pairs of shoes. In this case, I chose a gladiator style in a neutral shade and print (Yes, animal print is a neutral!). These go with white, black, tan, or bright colors and they are perfect for dressing up or down.

6. Tote . I was tempted to go for the obvious choice here: a straw beach tote. That would be a safe choice. But why not choose a bolder, canvas option that will pop with any outfit?!

7. Swimsuit–But not any ‘ol swimsuit. This one is a gorgeous shade of red (sexy), one piece (functional), and of course comes in long torso.

I had to stop myself here…but I could have easily added another 5 or 6 items. I feel a “Resort Wear Must Haves Part II” coming on! Stay tuned… 🙂

Resort Wear Must Haves For Him:

1. Dressy shorts. This is kind of the equivalent to the beachy dress. You could wear these to dinner but they’d be appropriate for strolling along the beach as well.

2. Swim trunks. It’s not easy to find “tall” swim trunks. These are a classic pair. They are a little more grown up then the oodles of hibiscus pairs we’re seeing, but a little more fun than plain board shorts.

3. Golf Shirt. If you’re anything like my husband, vacation isn’t vacation until you’ve squeezed in some golf time. This one is only $33, and comes in tall sizes and 8 colors.

4. Backpack. I’m a big fan of the murse (man purse, although I guess it could easily be mistaken for male nurse. I’ll have to work on my made up words). But most men aren’t hearing it. In your everyday life you can get away with shoving tons of stuff into your wallet and pockets but on vacation you have to have something more substantial. This one is perfect for sightseeing and excursions….assuming you can tear yourself away from lazy days on the beach!

5. Sandals. Real leather is comfortable but also more stylish than your typical rubber flip flops. You could totally wear these with chinos or khakis to dress them up.

6. Sunglasses. I’ll admit it’s hard to pick male clothing because it tends to be so basic. I had to add a fun accessory and this one is also clearly a necessity! I love the aviator shape; they look cool without looking like you’re trying too hard.

Tall Man of The Day – Tim Tebow

Can we get enough of Tebow? As Dever Broncos fans my family says “NO!”  We love him!
So we’re calling Tim Tebow our Tall Man of the Day!

According to Wikipedia Tebow is 6’3″ tall. Lately we’ve learned a few things about him that we didn’t know.

  • He was born in the Phillippines to American parents who were serving as Baptist missionaries.
  • Tebow was home schooled.
  • In high school Tebow played for a team that ran more than they passed the ball, so he moved to an apartment to be able to attend a high school where he could show off his quarterback skills. This was a controversial move.
  • During high school he spent his Summers in the Philippines helping in his father’s orphanage and doing missionary work
  • Tebow was the first home-schooling athlete to be nominated for the Heisman award.
  • Before each Bronco game Tebow visits with a handicapped or sickened child or someone that has had a hard life. We love that he’s so humble and personable!

Below my boys are “Tebowing” and as fans we must say “Go Broncos!”

Men’s Tall Sized Long Underwear – Product Review

My husband is working outside and the mornings are extra cold here in Colorado. He has to wear long underwear to stay warm. He came to me asking for help in finding some new tall sized long underwear as the style he was wearing was really tight and uncomfortable.
We ordered from Sierra Trading Post as their prices are excellent! The order was shipped via UPS and arrived in 2 days. Save 20% off your order at Sierra Trading Post with coupon code “ALVNOV2KX” during the dates of 11/4 – 12/1. Here is what we ordered:


Wickers Long Underwear Shirt – Midweight, Comfortrel®, Long Sleeve (For Tall Men) they are 2nds, but we couldn’t find any problems with them. They feel quite soft.

Wickers Long Underwear Bottoms – Midweight, Comfortrel® (For Tall Men) Also 2nds, but again can’t find a single blemish.

My husband is 6’3″ and they fit him perfectly. I think the bottoms even look a bit long, but he was able to pull them up easily so they fit under his pants without bunching. He said, “These are the most comfortable pieces of long underwear I’ve ever worn. ” He will be wearing them to work and on the ski slopes.
