I don't know about you but when I heard that ole Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow on Groundhog Day thus predicting 6 more weeks of winter, I wanted to throw something at the wall. I'm more than ready for hints of spring, and green fields, and new blooms. Instead, we had snow this weekend with more predicted for tomorrow. Sigh!
One thing that's sure to cure my winter blues is a bright top in a snazzy pattern. Enter the Long Tall Sally Paisley Scarf Print Kaftan which arrived on Saturday. Look at this print! How could it not cheer me up!?!? So lively and bright.
You may have noticed that I've been a bit neglectful lately with my shopping at "tall only" stores. I've gotten into the habit of buying tall items online from companies that have brick and mortar locations near me because it's easier for me to return stuff that doesn't fit. But I've missed shopping with my "tall only" stores! When LTS send me an email with a 30% off coupon and free shipping/returns, I pounced and bought a few things.
I've been wanting more tunics to wear with my skinny pants and boots. I thought the colors in this top would fit nicely with my Project Remix colors, but, in real life, the orange in the top is more reddish and the turquoise is very pale and subtle. Guess what? I don't care because it's really pretty. The size 6 is not too tight or too loose...it just drapes nicely. I love that the top has a "past-the-elbow" single button sleeve and tasteful pleats down the front. AND I love love love the side slits on the sides because I sometimes have to take tops like this to the tailor to get my own side slits cut. As you see below, it can be worn both unbelted or belted.

This top is definitely transitional in that it can easily go from late winter into spring into fall. Have you found any good tunics lately? I'm still looking for some cozy sweater tunics.
