I've been wearing a lot of color lately, but sometimes it's nice to play with neutrals (black, brown, gray, navy blue, tan, white, etc.). Oftentimes, I find that wearing all neutrals makes me feel more sophisticated. It's a very understated but classy way to dress. I generally like to jazz up neutrals with some sparkle―above I chose a mix of gold and silver metallic.

There's nothing tall about this outfit. I bought the regular-sized skirt from Marshalls and the regular-sized shirt from Ann Taylor. With skirts and tops, I rarely ever have to buy tall sizes. Maybe that's why I wear so many pencil skirts! It's dresses and pants that I always have trouble with.

Tall Readers - Do you ever have trouble finding skirts and tops that fit?

  1. Speaking of neutrals, Nordstrom is having their anniversary sale. Check out their nude pointy Ivanka Trump "Abello" flats:

    1. Thanks! The AT perfect pumps are almost perfect. They fit true to size and are really comfortable - I can run around in them for hours without my feet hurting. The heel is a bit wobbly and the toe box is a little short, but otherwise, I love them!
