Olivia Pope Style, that’s how I feel in todays ensemble.  Powerful, confident, classy and sexy.  This soft and neutral color palette is perfect for spring and quite feminine.  I was excited to receive a couple  of items from Long Tall Sally to review and post on the blog. I’ve only purchased one item before from Long Tall Sally a little over a year ago and unfortunately it didn’t work out.  It was a semi formal maxi dress and the fit was not good plus it came up too short, well above my ankles.  So to have the opportunity to try a couple of items to see if I would have better luck with the brand was something I was looking forward to doing.  I chose this Bonded Lace Jacket and these Belted Wide Leg Pants. The sleeve length and fit of the jacket (I’m wearing a size 12) were great.  I love the texture and color of this jacket, as well as the cut.   Some may say it is a bit pricey at $199 and for some it may be, but if you are a corporate or professional type, I could definitely see this  jacket as one of your staples.  Its not trendy but really a timeless, classic and beautiful piece. I must also mention very well made. I plan on pairing over sheath dresses and with skirts as well.  It will be interesting to challenge myself to see what other colors I can pair it with.  I’m thinking, ivory as I’m wearing here, but also maybe soft gray, black, navy and maybe even chocolate brown and I know I already love the combination of blush and burgundy, so that is another option as well.  I’ll be sure to show you what I’ve come up with in future posts because you know I love my color. Now these wide leg pants I am in love with as well.  I love the length!  I love the wide legs.  I love the weight of the fabric and  at first I was disappointed that they didn’t have pockets but then I learned to appreciate the fact that they didn’t because it leaves these pants with a clean streamlined front.  These pants come with a belt that I opted not to wear for today’s look but will use  it when I wear these pants in the future.  These pants can be worn dressed up as I am wearing today but I also plan on wearing them in a more casual way with a simple tee as well.  They can also be paired with a sweater or button up blouse. After receiving this bonded lace jacket and these belted wide leg pants I will definitely check into longtallsally.com more often then I used too, even if I do have to wait to catch some items on sale. You know this tall girl likes her deals; but for beautiful, quality and classic apparel that fits, I don’t mind spending a little more. It’s handled!;)

Thank you for stopping by!

Hugs,
