What I’m Loving: The Perfect Sweater

If you’re anything like me, you don’t buy a piece of clothing unless it’s juuuuust right. This applies to everything from shirts, dresses, pants, shoes, etc.

Lately, I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect cable knit sweater and I finally found it. I popped into Urban Outfitters to do a return and couldn’t resist doing a little shopping. While browsing the store, I came across the most perfect sweater and decided I had to have it.

It’s a beautiful, cozy cable knit sweater that’s not too heavy, not too fitted and long enough for a tall girl like me. The sweater also has adorable elbow patches and comes in quite a few colors. Plus, it’s currently on sale so snag one while you can!

Five Scarves You Need Right Now

It’s no secret that I’m ready for cooler weather to arrive. I don’t know if it’s because football season is here or the fact that I’m tired of stepping outside for two minutes and ending up drenched in sweat, but I can’t wait for the crisp days of fall. Down south it’s still pretty steamy, but I have hope that the heat will soon subside and I’ll be able to break out my favorite fall accessory: the scarf.

Although I’ve never met a scarf I didn’t like, I managed to put together a list of the top five scarves you need in your wardrobe. Read on more for more!

1. Plaid Scarf

You can’t talk about scarves without mentioning classic plaid. There’s something about a crisp checked pattern that makes me think of the holidays and snowy winter weather.

2. Leopard Scarf

I realize that not everyone has an affinity for leopard but hear me out. The right leopard print scarf can take a basic outfit from simple to sophisticated and is an unexpected neutral.

3. Neutral Scarf

Speaking of neutrals, you can’t have a scarf collection without at least one black, grey or beige piece. It’s the perfect thing to grab when you don’t have time to think and need to get out the door.

4. Infinity Scarf

When it comes to easy, breezy accessories, it doesn’t get much better than the infinity scarf. I love traveling with this type of scarf because they’re so easy to toss on and they add an extra dash of style to any outfit.

5. Blanket Scarf

Another travel scarf option is the blanket scarf. It can be worn as a warm and cozy scarf but also doubles as a blanket on those chilly plane rides.

Vacation Haul!

Oh hey! I’ve been up since 4:00 this morning traveling home from Chicago. I had a great vacation there (stay tuned for more on that) and of course ended up doing some shopping. Read on for a quick haul of the beauty and fashion items I picked up.

unnamed-1

Merona striped top: You know I had to check out Target while I was in a new city. I picked up this cute shirt and can’t wait to pair it with jeans, boots, and a cozy scarf!

Sam & Libby Peyton Ankle Boots: Also from Target, these boots will be a fall staple. They’re super comfy and a good neutral color.

Teal Flask: Call me crazy, but I’ve been wanting a cute flask for a while. I spotted this one at Neiman Marcus Last Call and knew it was the one!

Travel size dry shampoo: Dry shampoo is a major staple for me so I couldn’t resist picking up another travel size one. This one by Tresemmé isn’t my favorite, but it’s all I could find in the travel section.

Maybelline Color Tattoo 24HR Cream Gel Eyeshadow in Bad to the Bronze: I’ve heard such great things about this cream shadow and was thrilled to finally find it in stock somewhere. Because I definitely needed more eye shadow. Nope…

NYX Studio Liquid Liner in Extreme Coffee: This is my favorite liquid liner and I haven’t been able to find it anywhere near me. I happened across it at Nordstrom Rack and picked up a couple tubes!

Stila Sun Goddess Smudge Stick Duo eye liner: I love buying Stila liners at Nordstrom Rack. They’re my favorite liners and you can find great deals on them. This pack comes with a blackish brown color and a metallic golden bronze.

White and gold druzy necklace: I’m so in love with this long necklace from Nordstrom Rack. I wore it every day while on vacation and it goes perfectly with any outfit.

August Favorites

Well, well, well here it is almost mid September and I’m finally getting around to posting my August favorites. Better late than never, right?

With my self-imposed month of “no spending”, I wasn’t able to try out many new products in August but I did rediscover a couple gems in my collection. Read on to see what I was loving during August!

aug fav copy

mark. Good Glowing Blush in Afterglow—This product is such a throwback for me and I was excited to stumble across it in my pile of products. It’s basically a dupe for NARS Orgasm and has a subtle shimmer in it which looks amazing in the summer sun.

Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette in The Dolce Vita—If you’ve been reading my blog the last month or so, you’ll know I recently fell back in love with this gorgeous eye shadow palette. Although there are only four shadows in this palette, the amount of looks you can create is endless. If you can afford the splurge, it’s definitely a great product to have!

L’Oreal Boost It High Lift Creation Spray—As a girl with fine hair, I’m always looking for ways to pump up the volume. I recently discovered this hair product and it’s pretty awesome. All you do is spray it at the roots of your hair (or anywhere you want a little volume and texture) and you’re good to go.

Bloodline–With all the extra time I had from not shopping for makeup in August, I was able to watch a lot of Netflix. I came across a Netflix original, Bloodline, and immediately became obsessed. Set in the beautiful Florida Keys, this show is about testing family loyalties, betrayal, and plenty of secrets.

What I’m Loving: Blue Nail Polish

While I can’t say the bright, blue sky inspired today’s post (it’s actually been terribly rainy here the last couple of weeks), I’m still loving all things blue nail polish!

There’s something about the temperature heating up that makes me want to break up the monotony of my usual nude/dark colored nail polish and try something *gasp* colorful. Below are a few of the colorful blue polishes I’ve had my eye one. Which one is your favorite?

Splurge vs Steal: Rebecca Minkoff

I don’t know if it’s the pollen going to my head or the fact that festival season is upon us, but lately I’ve been allllll about finding a fringe crossbody bag.

I’ve been eyeing the Finn crossbody from Rebecca Minkoff for a while now and while it’s gorgeous, I can’t quite bring myself to drop the cash on such a trendy item.

As I was cruising Target’s website looking for a fringey alternative, I stumbled across a great dupe of my coveted bag.

Available in black and cognac, the Target version is strikingly similar to the more expensive Minkoff. While the strap isn’t removable and, okay, maybe the fringe isn’t as awesomely fringey as the Finn, I think it’s a great alternative for those of us wanting to experiment a little bit.

Which one do you prefer?

What I’m Loving: Druzy Stone Jewelry

It’s no secret that I’m addicted to jewelry. If I’m not wearing my usual stack of bracelets, rings and earrings, I just don’t feel like myself. Lately druzy stone pieces seem to be everywhere and I’m totally obsessed! Below are a few of the pieces I’m loving.

e.l.f. High Definition Undereye Setting Powder: I recently started using the e.l.f. High Definition Translucent Powder, and this Undereye Setting Powder is next on my list to try!

Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate: Let’s face it, we’re not getting any younger and I’m all about preventative skin care. I’ve been loving facial oils lately and I’ve heard this elixir is a great one!

Kiehl’s Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado: I’m on a never-ending quest for the perfect eye cream. This is one that looks promising without breaking the bank! And it doesn’t hurt that I’m constantly craving guacamole…

Unite Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner: I’ve been wanting to step up my hair care game and this shampoo and conditioner duo might be just the thing.

Charlotte Tilbury FIlmstar Bronze and Glow: The packaging of this highlighter and bronzer set is so gorgeous. And the product inside looks to be just as gorgeous!

Dior Crème de Rose Smoothing Plumping Lip Balm: I’m a sucker for lip products of any kind and this one is so luxurious!

“Bitch Please” Necklace: What can I say? This necklace is the perfect accessory for the sassy cynic. AKA me.

Side note: This is officially my 100th post on That Tall Girl and I just want to give a quick thank you to all of you reading this now. Thank you SO much for all the kind words, support, and motivation. You are the reason I keep coming back to blog! XO!

Style Crush: Kendall Jenner

Lately it seems that Kendall Jenner is all over place. And before you roll your eyes…she’s technically not a Kardashian (I can’t stand them either).

Whether she’s walking the runway, starring in an amazing ad for Estee Lauder, or just strolling around town, Kendall always looks effortlessly put together and I’m allllll about that.

She rocks basics like no other and manages to make her outfits look interesting even when she’s only wearing plain ol’ black and white.

Check out some of my favorite Kendall looks below:
