shorts, clothing, fashion

I absolutely love shorts, but being tall and long in the legs makes it difficult for me to find anything that actually fits. Aside from me creating my own shorts (which turned out to be a total failure) I’m usually out of luck when it comes to finding anything. However over the years I’ve come across a few stores that work for me.

Gap. Inc: My favouriteeeeee for short shopping. Gap and old Navy have this 3 inch-4 inch jean short that are built for the tall customer. Not only that but they have everything from the boyfriend short, to the high wasted short; anything that is currently in season they have it!!!

  • If you’re worried about the price and don’t want to spend $40 on a pair of shorts I would suggest shopping at the outlets. Get a pair there first and then if you like them, then go back for more!

Nordstrom: Also has a good selection of shorts depending on the designer. It’s a hit or miss for me but I have found a few good pairs.

Cotton on: These shorts aren’t necessarily extremely long; but they are wide at the leg opening so they look very flattering. The worst is when your shorts are too tight and the short starts to roll up and rise. My cotton on shorts don’t do that at all and they are super affordable.

Rompers: Although they are not shorts per-se they are a great alternative for those who still have a hard time with getting a decent pair of shorts. Most rompers come in fabric instead of denim so that gives you more room in the thighs and sometimes more length.

Most tall women have the hassle of finding shoes in their size. Now some of us are blessed with normal/average size shoe but I personally wear a size 11. If you’re in the same boat as me then this is the perfect shoe guide for you!

Inspirational quotes,

I believe whatever you wake up to is what sets the precedence for how your day will go. For me if I wake up to a messy house then my day already starts off chaotic, if I wake up to positivity then my day starts off great!. I’m always cautious of what I surround myself with because I don’t want to carry negativity with me. So I decided to create an inspirational wall. A wall full of empowering quotes and things that will keep me inspired and motivated. One of my all time favorite authors is Maya Angelou, so I will definetly be adding some of her poetic quotes as well! It will be hanging right above my desk( which is where I do my blogging). Here are a few things that I plan to include!

Any suggestions!?

free people, boho

One of the most popular and trending styles today is the Boho look. Although most would say my style is timeless/classic I try not to classify my style because I’m always trying new things.

Some of it can be overboard but I’ve always loved it because its easy simple and I’m absolutely in awe of the floral, lace and other intricate details. My go too is Free people which is usually out of my price range, so I wouldn’t shop there every day but I would buy a few pieces for days that I want something different. Above are a few pieces I would love to add to my closet! Check out some of my favorite Boho accessories here!

Where do you love to shop for fun pieces?

Its summer and if you’re going to try to add anything crazy to your wardrobe now is the time to do it. So I decided to buy some houndstooth jeans!! I’ve always like houndstooth as a print although it does tend to be a little loud, if you wear it right it can be the perfect added edge to a look.
