Houndstooth and Colorblock

DSC04421_pp

Hello Lovelies! Today is one of those days where I am again stepping out of my comfort zone and trying something new with houndstooth and color block. I’ve always loved print mixing in all shapes and forms and I’ve seen it done many different ways.  Today I decided to try it with a small houndstooth print and a large color block printed cardigan and I love it!

I purchased this cardigan a few months ago on clearance from Target.  It was part of the Peter Pillotto for Target collaboration and it is actually the only piece I purchased from the collection.  I love this sweater because of the color and also because of the mesh knit sleeves and back.  Also love that the sleeves of this cardigan are long enough and it isn’t even tall size, love when that happens.  For reference this cardigan is an xl. Normally when you think of cardigans, sexy isn’t one of the first words that come to mind but this is a sexy cardigan..lol Especially if worn alone as I am doing today.  The next time I wear it, I will wear it open with a tank or cami underneath  with pants for a completely different look.  As you all know I’m all about making the most of pieces I already own and I have a lot of plans for this card this fall that I will be showing you here on the blog in upcoming posts.DSC04433_pp

This houndstooth print pencil skirt was a recent purchase from Ross Dress for Less and it was only $8.99.  Houndstooth is perfect for fall, so I was happy to find it on the racks available in my size.  It is a juniors skirt and I am wearing an xl.  It is made of a mid weight stretchy knit material. As you can see the length is perfect for tall frames, hitting me right at the knee.  This was definitely a great find.  I plan on wearing it again this fall with my oversize off the shoulder black sweater and pairing it with a graphic tee and black moto jacket.

My bag is old and from the 3.1 Philip Lim for Target collaboration and my blue pumps are old from The Avenue.  I love how they pair nicely with the blues in this cardigan without being the exact same color.

Tall Women’s Leather

Shopping tall women’s leather for fall. Leather, faux or real  is a timeless classic and season after season, it is a reminder that colder weather is approaching as we see it readily available in stores and online.  Unfortunately for us tall ladies our sizes are often available only in limited quantities that seem to sell out often before the cooler weather even hits.  So I thought I would check just before Labor Day in hopes of bringing it to your attention while most sizes are readily available. Here are some tall women’s leather pieces currently available that I have had my eye on.

Simplicity

Pretty Tall Style - Tall Fashion Blog

Hello Lovelies! Another lesson I’ve been learning from my new short do’ is that sometimes less is more.  And so today outfit is all about simplicity.

This skirt I’ve had for several months now.  It was one of the five original pieces that the team over at ASOS sent to me to review when they first launched launched their tall line.  When I first received it I tried pairing so many things with it that just didn’t look right to me or took away from the asymmetrical wrap detail of the skirt.  For some reason a light bulb popped in my head and said don’t overthink it, keep it simple and I pulled out my black tank top and it was enough.DSC04343_pp

This look can be transitioned into fall by simply adding a denim jacket or a black sweater and worn during fall by adding my black leather jacket, black knit scarf and black booties. So my tip to you today is that if you have a piece in your closet that you haven’t worn because you couldn’t figure out what to wear it with.  Just think about keeping it simple. Pick out a tee, or sweater in a solid color and let that one particular item be the focal piece. But make sure your shoes are cute…lol  These lace up sandals by Nine West are a go to favorite of mine. I think a pair of really cute shoes in black are a closet must-have.  They have n’t failed me yet.DSC04340_ppWhat I’m Wearing:
