Pretty Tall Style - Tall Women's Fashion and DIY Style Blog - DIY Grey Maxi Dress + Denim Jacket

Simple, cute and comfortable, these three words are right up my alley when it comes to getting dressed in the summertime.  When the temps start heating up and the bus have been driving me crazy from being out of school I need outfits that can be quickly thrown together but still have me looking put together and a maxi dress and denim jacket is the answer most of the time for me.  Especially since I’ve gotten my sewing mojo back and have been making these in various colors…lol  They are so easy to just throw on and go, love a look that doesn’t take much effort.  This one was super easy.  I’ve linked some grey maxi dresses above and I hope you all already have a denim jacket in your closet because it is a wardrobe staple, but just in case you don’t I’ve got you covered there as well.  Keep in mind this works with any color maxi dress as my accessories are all neutrals.  My maxi dress is straight down and as I’ve picked up some weight I prefer them to be fitted on my frame but not tight, so I throw on a wide belt to accentuate my waist and give me some shape. The denim jacket it the perfect layering piece, I decided to top it all off with my olive green statement earrings and pretty “P” initial necklace from Ainkas Jewels.  You know I love me some personalization and the P can represent pretty or my last name, depending on my mood..lol I switch intermittently between this letter P and the T, love these dainty initial necklaces.

Okay so I must admit that this V Neck Floral Print Dress from make Me Chic (for reference I ordered the XL), was a bit out of my comfort zone at first.  I mean the “girls” are showing a bit more than they are used too…lol I had to look at myself for a good 5 minutes and then another five minutes wondering if I should just go ahead and put a camisole on with the dress, but I said let me be daring for one night.  Which for me this is, as most of the time since having kids I have been covered up in mommy mode.  But this dress helped me to remember that I am a still a beautiful and vivacious woman and we all need a little reminder of that every once in a while.  You could say this V Neck Floral Print Dress,  ahas helped me to get my grown and sexy back, which needs to be unwrapped every once in a while.  But not too much unwrapped, so if the girls are out, then I like for the rest of me to be covered and the length and drape of this dress is perfect.  I also love the loose flutter sleeves and this pretty print with the yellow flowers.  I think this dress can get lots of wears.  To make it daytime appropriate I would simply add a camisole underneath and pair it with some flat sandals and back to mommy mode I go, with it being perfect for running errands and picking up the kids from school.

So summer has officially decided to show up.  We’ve had beautiful warm weather the past couple of days, so I’m definitely looking for ways to stay cool and cute.  I came across these high rise wide leg crops from Old Navy and immediately wanted them but I was a bit disappointed to see that they weren’t available in tall sizes.  But I decided to go ahead and pull the trigger and I am so happy that I did.  I love the fit of these.  I think because they are “high rise”  they hit me where they should on my waist.  If these were mid-rise they would not have worked on my tall frame being regular sized. If you are expecting hot temps where you live, you may want to take a look at these because they are so light weight and easy breezy.  They consist of a tencel and rayon blend and have elastic at the back.  Another plus is that they have pockets.  As we know pockets make everything better.  For reference I’m wearing these in an extra large.  They are a little baggy in the waist, so they fall down a bit on me so I will take them in about an inch and they will be perfect.  I really love these and would recommend if you are looking for ways to beat the heat and stay chic.Pretty Tall Style - Tall Women's Fashion and DIY Blog - White High Rise Wide Leg Crops Pretty Tall Style - Tall Women's Fashion and DIY Blog - White High Rise Wide Leg Crops Pretty Tall Style - Tall Women's Fashion and DIY Blog - White High Rise Wide Leg Crops

I love a nautical navy and white look, today I’m showing how to style a graphic tee for a cute and casual look.  This is one of my typical everyday looks when the weather starts to heat up.  It’s perfect for running errands, dropping off and picking the kids up at school, perfect for soccer mom duties or outings with the family. If it’s cool in the morning you have the cards to keep you warm warm.  As it starts to heat up you can take it off and throw it over your shoulder or tie around your waist.  A cross body is an essential for me when I’m out with my boys I always need to keep y hands free so that I am able to hold their hands. This is a simple and easy look, yet I still feel put together and cute. Pretty Tall Style - Tall Women's Fashion and DIY Style Blog - Navy Shorts with Striped Cardi Pretty Tall Style - Tall Women's Fashion and DIY Style Blog - Navy Shorts with Striped Cardi
