Pretty Tall Style - Tall Women's Fashion - Style Tips - DIY - Spring Green Gingham

Hello lovelies! Today I’m showing you how sometimes it can be to your advantage to borrow from the boys with a spring green gingham button up. I personally love gingham and especially button up shirts.  Each year I scour online sites looking for different color gingham shirts available in tall sizes sometimes I luck out and sometimes I wind up empty handed.  Well I decided to look over in the men’s section there is an array of colorful gingham shirts readily available.  As I was looking for similar shirts to post of mine that is actually where I found the most reasonably priced ones as well.  So the tip for today is don’t be afraid to take a gander in the men’s section every once in a while.  You may be pleasantly surprised at what you find.

When I came across the Nine West Pirin Slip On Sneaker I immediately thought about the Gucci Sneaker with the red/navy grosgrain ribbon and floral embroidery.  But I have to admit that I wasn’t a fan of the floral embroidery shown on these sneakers but decided to order them to see in person. I was surprised when they arrived and did not have the floral embroidery as shown on the website but was happy because I prefer them without because it gives me the opportunity to find a rose floral appliqué of my own choosing and DIY it if I don’t just leave them as is.  Other than the fact that these sneakers weren’t as shown on the website I am happy with them.  They slip right on, with no fuss, the leather is great quality and these shoes are super comfortable.  I have always been obsessed with stripes so you know I love the red/navy grosgrain ribbon across the top.  I feel I can wear these sneakers with quite a few items in my closet and love the preppy vibe I am getting from them, hence my preppy match-matchy look today.Pretty Tall Style - Tall Fashion - Style Tips - DIY - Red and Navy Stripes

A tall size shirt dress that hits at the knee and has pockets oh my! If you have not already scooped up this black utility shirt dress from Old Navy then I advise you finish reading this post and then head on over to there site and check it out.  I ordered this dress in a large tall and I would say the fit is true to size.  I measured the length from the shoulder to the front hem and it came in at 46″.  As you can see this dress hits me just at my knees on my 6′ 4″ frame.  There are a few things that I love about this dress, the material which is 100% rayon, the length, the fact that it has pockets and the casualness with the drawstring type belt at the waist.  There were a couple of thing that were a bit of an annoyance, it wrinkles pretty easily and the pockets sit kind of high and aren’t very deep as you can see how my arms and hands are placed in the pic above.  Those annoyances weren’t enough to make me want to send the dress back as the reasons why I love it totally outweighed the negatives and I would recommend this dress especially since it is currently on sale for $26.

I decided to dress it up a bit by pairing it with tie up heels and these turquoise tassel earrings for that pop of color I’m always talking about.  This would be a great look for brunch with the girls or movie date with the hubby.  I also plan on wearing this dress for running errands and picking up the kids from school by pairing it with flat sandals.  I’ll try to get that look and a couple of other ways to style this dress up on the blog within the next couple of weeks.  You know it’s all about maximizing the wardrobe and I believe this dress is a great piece to do just that.

Hello lovelies! Today’s look features this Navy Striped Off-the-Shoulder Ruffle Sleeve Top courtesy of SheIn.  I was drawn to this top because of my current obsession for anything stripes, off-the-shoulder and these statement sleeves.  This top is super affordable at only $14 and really makes a statement all on its own.  A perfect addition to ones spring/summer wardrobe.  The navy blue color with the bold white stripes really help to make it stand out as well.  I think pairing it with crisp white pants or jeans creates a classic look.  I would recommend pairing it with straight or slightly flared jeans or pants as I have done here because I think it helps to balance out the fullness of the sleeves. I chose to finish off the look with a neutral wedge heel sandal and my red/orange MK satchel for that pop of color.Pretty Tall Style - Tall Women's Personal Style Blog - SheIn Navy Vertical Off The Shoulder Ruffle Top

This Michael Kors satchel I’ve had for a few years now and what drew me too it was the red/orange color.  I think a bag in a bold color can help to make a look pop!Pretty Tall Style - Tall Women's Fashion and Personal Style Blog

How cute are these 14th & Union wedge heel sandals.  I purchased them last year from my local Nordstrom Rack.  The color is the perfect neutral for my skin tone and they are super comfortable and very easy to wear.  The height of the wedge makes them great for pairing with dresses or jeans.
