So I’ve already told you guys to give me all the gingham!  I absolutely adore this print and each year I cannot wait to add more gingham pieces to my wardrobe. With today’s black white and gingham look, I continue with my obsession, this time with a shoe.  I found these shoes online at Nordstrom Rack last year and never had the chance to post them on the blog, so although I’ve had them for almost a year, today they are making their debut. They seem to be right on trend with all of the gingham print shoes currently available. I decided to keep my look classic and monochromatic with my white Banana Republic Trench and this simple knit dress I found at Wal-Mart last year while grocery shopping. It does seem a little weird buying clothes from the same place I buy bananas and cereal, but hey, it was simple and cute and who can pass up an LBD that you can just throw on and go because it is made of a jersey knit material.  Plus with how I topped it off with better quality pieces no one ever has to know, except you all who read my blog…lol   Pretty Tall Style - Personal Style - Tall Fashion - DIY - Black White and Gingham

Tall Girls UK hasn’t let me down yet with their maxi dresses.  I tell you they pick the prettiest of prints and the length is always perfect on me. I tell you I am so in love with this red poppy print bardot maxi frill dress.  If you know me, you know I love color and never have been one to shy away from it, so this beauty was calling my name.  I just feel really pretty in it so you know its a winner for me. For reference I’me wearing the US size 14 and wearing this dress with flats as I’ve pictured below. The fabric is 100% viscose, think rayon.  Which I love for the warmer because of the airiness and drape.  This dress is not stiff and moves with you.  It has a subtle slit in the front which helps with mobility and is a nice little detail.  The simple frill up top can be worn off the shoulders as I am wearing it here, but also think about wearing it as a one shoulder dress dress as well.  It also has straps that you can wear if you feel you need the extra support or want a different look.  I’ll be showing those later on the blog as this dress will be getting lots of wear from me as well. Today I decided to dress it up by pairing it with the fancy and currently trending earrings I found at Target.I love how how they help to make an outfit pop.  Although I must say this dress doesn’t need any extra help in that department.  It makes a pretty good statement all on its own!

Pretty Tall Style - Tall Women's Fashion and DIY Blog - Navy Off The Shoulder Tie Waist Ruffle Hem Maxi Dress

This navy off the shoulder tie waist ruffle hem maxi dress from Shein is another piece that can work for us tall girls.  Of course it is not a maxi dress on us but makes a very cute midi dress.  Again I stick to my formula of ordering pieces that are available in a XL and I look to the length.  Anything midi length or longer I know will be able to work for me as a dress.  Mini dresses and and tunics I know will work for me as a top, depending on how they are cut.  This method seems to be working for me as I have yet to ordered a piece from them that didn’t work for my tall frame.  As for quality, I have to say I was thoroughly surprised with the quality of this dress.  It drapes and moves beautifully, the color is saturated and it is sewn together nicely. For reference I am wearing the XL.  I love the added detail of the tassel draw string on this dress as well. For under $25 this dress is definitely worth having a look at as it will work for spring and summer.  I’m thinking that I may even try to style it in the fall layered over a black turtleneck with black boots underneath.  Also will try pairing it with my white moto jacket and my black faux leather moto jacket as well when the temps cool down.  As for this summer it will definitely be worn a lot as it is just so easy to throw on and pair with high heel sandals or flat sandals, I’m even thinking my black mules will work as well.  This dress was a very pleasant surprise from SheIn and I love it!

So when the temperature starts to soar that means its time to let the legs out and I love to do that in fun, flirty and colorful dresses!  So when I laid eyes on this Out On A Lime Sleeveless Pintuck Swing Dress from Old Navy it was love at first sight.  I was so happy to see that it was available in tall sizes. When looking at where the dress hit on the model, slightly above the knee and reading the description that stated it hits at the knee, I decided to take a chance knowing that there would be the possibly of it coming up too short on me but I loved the style and bright color of this dress that I decided to take the chance.  Well I think its borderline, but just to let you know I dare not leave the house in this dress without shorts underneath..lol  A big gust or wind or if I need to pick anything up off the ground well, I’m not trying to show my goodies, but I just couldn’t pass up on this dress.  I love the style, the flowing airy fit and the bright neon yellow color.  This dress makes me happy, so yay to shorts underneath for the win! So ladies if you live in a climate that gets really hot in the summer you may want to take a look at this dress.  It also comes in a bright pink and black.  I also grabbed the pink one.  the color is gorgeous and very saturated.  I’ll have that look up on the blog soon.Pretty Tall Style - Tall Women's Fashion and DIY Blog - Old Navy Out on A Lime Sleeveless Pintuck Swing Dress Pretty Tall Style - Tall Women's Fashion and DIY Blog - Old Navy Out on A Lime Sleeveless Pintuck Swing Dress
