Style A (Tall) Friend!

Hi friend! I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Our family had our annual trip to Dewberry Farm this weekend and the weather couldn’t have been more perfect for it!  It was sunny and warm, but we weren’t dying like we have in years’ past.  It’s the best to be able to get together pretty regularly and we’re already planning Thanksgiving.  How wild is that – that it will actually be here in a little over a month!

And guess what?! Amazon PRIME DAYS launch tomorrow with TONS of things already on sale for your holiday shopping.  I spent a good chunk of time pulling together my top gift picks in every category and that will be live for you tomorrow.  I also have a brand new Amazon fashion haul, so definitely come back Tuesday for that!

In the meantime, bookmark my Amazon storefront! I update it daily!

STYLE A (TALL) FRIEND

Today is all about styling a friend and I know how y’all love that! Usually we bring in our girl Ali-Shaun (don’t worry, she’ll be joining us again next month!), but today my friend Rhonda and the gal that works with me Monday – Thursday joined in!

Let us know if this was helpful and if you’d like to see more of Rhonda in the dressing room!

SIZE REFERENCE

Rhonda is 5’9 and normally wears a size Small or Medium top and size 8 bottoms

I’m 5’1 and normally wear size XS top and size 0P bottoms

Almost all of the things we tried on are from Gibson and I have a discount code for you to use at checkout.  It’s good for your entire order!

Bodysuit, Jeans, Wedges, Flats

I’ve been a huge fan of Gibson bodysuits for ages.  They have the perfect amount of stretch, a comfortable snap bottom and they’re definitely opaque.  This new style has a square neckline and bra friendly shoulder straps!

And big news! Gibson finally came out with a pair of jeans!!  And friend, they are GOOD!  I’ve already worn mine several days in a row and they’re so comfortable!  They have a high waist, straight leg (although the website says ‘mini flare’ I think they’re more straight) and raw edge hem.  The dark blue wash makes them easy to dress up or down.

You can see how much more crop they fit Rhonda than me.  On me, they’re practically ankle length!

We were both crazy about this top that’s made in that signature soft material we’ve all come to know and love from Gibson.  There’s a petite shoulder pad that helps emphasize the puff sleeve shoulder.  We want this one in every color!

I’m wearing a balloon sleeve ribbed knit top and Rhonda has on a super soft pullover.  Both are versatile for work to weekend and the colors are so pretty!

OMG, this dog nipping at my heels literally! But let’s talk about the tops;) These blouses have that floral color and print that is great this time of year.  It has a flutter sleeve and open v-neck. You could definitely dress this top up with pants or a skirt, but it also looks great with jeans.

Ooh, we both really liked this waffle knit top too.  It has a boatneck style that can also be worn off the shoulder and a casual dolman sleeve.

Look how tall Rhonda is compared to me when she puts on heels and I’m in flats!  We laughed so hard at the difference! The sweater is a great one, and since it’s not too long, it gives the illusion of legs for days.  Rhonda actually has legs for days though, us shorties are the ones who could use the illusion!

This turtleneck is a closet staple, but both of us struggled to get it over our head.  I love the red on Rhonda and the sweater vest worn over the turtleneck is an easy layered look.

This cardigan looked great on Rhonda, but not so much on me.  It runs big and even the XS looked better on Rhonda than the Small.  See how much better the smaller size in red looks on her in the photo below.

But this cardigan is a favorite!  That pop of pink contrast is so lively and fun!

The joggers are new by Gibson and made from a rayon/linen blend so they can be dressed up.  They run small though, so size up one.

We both liked the relaxed fitting cowl neck top, but it was weird how much longer the back was on mine.  Rhonda’s looked like an appropriate high/low top, but mine was way longer in the back.

DRESSES

Shirt Dress, Nude Heels, Leopard Heels

This is a perfectly polished dress that feels amazing on!  It’s a shirt dress style that you can wear to work, a party, or dinner.  I really like the side slit that shows a little leg and that emerald green is stunning in person.

I loved this dress, how it fit and how soft it feels on.  Rhonda felt like it was a little too snug for her comfort lever.  I thought she looked fantastic in it!

She preferred this dress that is more on the conservative side.  I definitely think it needs that belt to give it a little something extra!

    This is my favorite post of all time!!! I have always loved your blog, but I am tall and not able to envision some of your awesome finds on myself. I have had a few let downs that look amazing on you and are just too short on me to work. Rhonda is beautiful and I hope you feature her more often, what a great addition to your blog!
