Tall Travel Style – California Edition

It seems like I blinked and before I knew it, it had been over 15 months since I’d been home to the U.S. When I landed at LAX a couple of weeks ago, I was SO thrilled to be home that I came very close to bear hugging the immigration officers who said the cursory “welcome home” to me but then thought the better of it lest my enthusiasm be taken the wrong way. Seriously though…hearing that welcome home meant more to me than those strangers will ever know. While I have become relatively comfortable living in Germany as an expat for almost […]

IVKO Wool Sweater Dress

Thoughtful Shopping: IVKO Wool Sweater Dress

When was the last time a garment REALLY thrilled you? Like you bought something and then you found yourself literally wanting to wear it every single day (except then I guess it would get a little stinky). That’s how I feel about my latest purchase – an extra-fine Merino wool sweater dress from the Serbian brand IVKO  – and it’s such a good feeling. This is how I want to feel about ALL of my purchases! Remember how I mentioned I’d found that really cool fair trade shop in my area which not only sold some great brands but also made its own clothing […]

Review of handmade Pink Maharani cashmere pashmina

Thoughtful Shopping Switzerland Edition – Pink Maharani and I Love Tall

When my friend Karen from Tall Wife invited me on an impromptu girls’ trip to Switzerland in November, I enthusiastically accepted the invitation. I envisioned a weekend full of fondue, shopping, exploring and girl talk and I wasn’t disappointed. In the shopping department, I scored a couple of tall tops and a magnificently soft cashmere shawl from Pink Maharani. Wait until you hear the story behind how it was made! Both Karen and I hopped on the train from our respective homes and met in Zurich. You may remember that I had been to Zurich in 2015 and had had a nice […]

Studying my Closet – 4 Items to Buy in 2017

Do you ever stand in your closet and stare at your clothes? I know this probably sounds kind of weird and I don’t typically make a habit of it, but I found myself doing so the other day. I wanted to study the items in my closet that I find myself reaching for again and again when it’s time to get dressed so that I can figure out what I should buy this year. Here are a few things I noticed… I’m loving button-ups lately (and bonus points if they have patterns or texture!) I used to think buttons-up shirts were stuffy and […]

Cold Weather Favorites and Life Lately

As you can see, my late summer break that I took in September turned into a full blown blogging sabbatical. Oops! I’ve had a bit of difficulty getting back into the swing of blogging the past couple of months for a few reasons and decided I’d quickly catch you up on what’s been going down and what I’ve been thinking. Buckle your seatbelt since this is a bit long. First, I just feel like such a busy bee between my part-time job, my volunteer work, my German lessons, managing our household, traveling and maintaining some semblance of a social life. I’m […]

4 Days in the Scottish Highlands - Bealach na Ba road

4 Days in the Scottish Highlands – Tall Travel Style

If you read my posts about Copenhagen, then you know that I was determined not to travel anywhere even remotely hot this summer. I would say we definitely succeeded in beating the heat this summer since the weather in Copenhagen was certainly pleasant and the weather during our 4 days in the Scottish Highlands was borderline chilly. The scenery in the Highlands was truly some of the most dramatic and breathtaking landscapes I’ve ever seen. Part of the charm is how uninhabited the area is with the primary residents appearing to be sheep and cows. Our original plan was to stay somewhere different […]

Thoughtful Shopping Update – Thrifting, 30 Wears and Favorite Pieces So Far

I’m way overdue for an update on my Thoughtful Shopping Series! The truth is I’ve been heavy on the “thoughtful” part and light on the shopping which I’m perfectly fine with. One of the shifts I’m noticing in my buying habits is that I’m slow as molasses in buying things now because I ponder my purchases for quite awhile.  If I do buy something, it’s usually because I really love the item, know it’ll fill a void in my closet and know I’ll wear it a ton. I can’t remember the last time I bought something impulsively. Since I haven’t been shopping much, I’m […]

Cycling to dinner in Copenhagen

Tall Travel Style – Cycling Around Copenhagen

The highlight of our trip to Copenhagen was being able to ride bikes EVERYWHERE. We rented bikes on the afternoon of our first day in town and kept them for the next 3 days. The bike lanes are super roomy and all over town making it very convenient and safe to get places. Being so active every day made me feel quite energized. I think it was a combo of the exercise, the breeze in my hair, the unpredictability of when we might get rained on and the thrill of exploring a new city. Read below for my adventures cycling around Copenhagen.

Tall Travel Style – Copenhagen Day 1

Last July, we spent 10 days in Italy and it was beautiful but SO miserably hot! This year, we wised up and went north to Copenhagen which proved to be a fabulous decision since temps never rose above 72F/22C! I feel positively rejuvenated after spending the last 3 days in this amazing city with its gentle sunshine, nice breezes, beautiful waterways, bright buildings, friendly locals and amazing food. Today is the 1 year anniversary of my relaunch of my website under the Tall Fashion Adventures name, so I figured what better way to celebrate than to write about one of my new […]
