On Friday, I ventured into downtown Boston for an evening out. Rather than go with my usual jeans and slouchy tee, I pulled out all the stops and donned my new favorite piece of clothing—a lightweight metallic sweater in the most beautiful shade of bronze. I can’t resist subtle sparkle, and I’ve been wearing it EVERYWHERE…
The best part about my new favorite sweater? It was $9 on sale at JCPenney! And it comes in talls, and is more than long enough in the body and sleeves! Sadly, the bronze seems to be the only metallic it comes in…if it were available in a peach-y or ivory metallic, I’d be in heaven!
Also…tall sizes at JCPenney!!!! Up to a 36″ inseam!!!! There are SUPER affordable items, and most are higher-quality than your standard item from a comparable store (i.e. Target). I love when affordability and well-fitting coincide!

I thought I’d start with a slightly older (ca. October) outfit photo to kick things off. It was a beautiful autumn Saturday, and I was kicking around in the dog park across from my apartment. Sadly, I have no dog (two cats, one of whom acts like a dog), but posing in the grass certainly got me a bunch of canine attention! Right before Mike took this picture, a dog came up and licked my face (I was sitting in the grass).
One of the challenges I most frequently face in regard to clothing is skirt length. Much like pant length, too short is an all-too-common phenomenon. Enter one of my favorite style collaborations: Simply Vera Vera Wang for Kohl’s. I have had remarkable luck finding elegant, current tops and skirts by the inestimable Ms. Wang that have darts in the right places and are plenty long…tall ladies, run—don’t walk—to Kohl’s and check out their selection!
