Stripes

Green Stripe-y Shirt: New York & Co. Gray Wide Leg Pants: Express. Brown Boots: Aldo.

I thought I'd try a pattern with these pants this time. I typically wear these pants with either a solid black or white shirt, so I wasn't sure what other colors would go - but then I just figured "whatever!" and went with the green pattern. I think it works, and of course my favorite thing of all....... I was comfy!

I like this color combination a lot. The light green is lovely on you, and it is a nice reminder that spring is on the way.

Hi! I really enjoy reading your blog, it has inspired me to pay more attention to what I'm wearing and I've made more bold choices. I just wanted to say that you have great taste, and your clothes look great on you! What do you do to stay in shape?

I like the high-waisted pants with the spring green shirt.

Perhaps it's just this pose, but the waistline of those pants looks a bit gappy. This is a perennial problem for tall girls. By the time I get pants long enough, they are too big in the waist.

I think it is the pose that makes the pants look more gappy than what they are in reality, but actually the styling of these pants have a gathered effect above the belt - so is actually meant to pull away at the top.

I will admit though, that it is hard to find long enough pants that still fit at the waist. I've had the most luck at New York and Co.

I love that look on you, that green definitely suits you!

Love your blog! I have a logistical question...I like the look of a shirt tucked in straight, with no extra fabric pulled out. But when you sit down or bend over, doesn't that get messed up? Wouldn't your shirt come out a little, and then stick out? I've just never understood how to make it work all day, unless your shirt is really tight!

Yep, it's kind of a pain I'll agree. Some good tips are to find tops that are a bit more fitted, and also a bit longer.

Another option is to get a one piece button up shirt that looks like it is tucked in, but is really a snap-on one piece.

Good luck!
