I decided to start a regular type of post called "Outfit Ideas." These posts can be thought of as inspiration and likely won't contain the tall tips and tricks you're used to seeing in my other posts.

I wanted to start this type of post for a couple of reasons:

  1. Not everything I wear is a tall size. I'm actually on the shorter side of tall and therefore wear a considerable amount of regular-sized clothing.
  2. I haven't been posting as much as I'd like because I feel like every time I post, I need to share something monumental or inspirational (it takes me a lot longer to put together a thoughtful post). I'd rather be more consistent in posting than only posting once in a while.
Now, let's talk about the outfit I'm wearing above. 

I wore this ensemble out to breakfast on Sunday morning. I tried pairing plaid with a bright red skirt and I love how the thin red stripe in the plaid shirt matches the red skirt perfectly. This helps to pull the outfit together. I'm also loving how seasonal this outfit feels. All I need is hot chocolate and Christmas songs. Is it too early for that?

If I wear this again, I would try flats instead of boots to give it a softer, more feminine look. I feel like fats would also make my legs look longer because they wouldn't truncate my leg at my knee. 


  1. I love the concept of outfit idea :)
    And the red skirt combined to the plaid shirt is really great!
