I don’t know about anyone else, but once winter hits here in Canada, I feel like I enter complete hibernation mode. Planning anything other than my regular work schedule, holiday dinners, and a few gym visits throughout the week starts to feel like a daunting task. So as the temperatures began to dip, so has my creativity and overall motivation.
It also doesn’t help that I turn into a bit of a winter grinch. I am NOT a fan of the cold, however pretty the first snowfall is, and seeing as how I generally need to use the outdoors to shoot looks for the blog, I tend to avoid planning shoots in cold weather, and it’s left me pretty dry on material for the last month or so. I’M SORRY!! lol.. no but really, week after week I’ve been feeling pretty lame about letting another week go by with no new content.
That being said, I HAVE been doing some shopping here and there and have a few things lined up to share. First of which is my Black Friday purchase from Missguided! I knowww this was ages ago, so some of the deals are irrelevant, but the style is not. For those of you who don’t know, Missguided has a tall deparment! I only found this out a few months ago and decided to take advantage of the sale for my first purchase. I only checked out with 3 items because, being a new tall retailer to me, I wanted to make sure it would fit!
My favourite item in this mini haul is what I styled this for this week’s post. These high waisted extreme wide leg pants are everything. The length is perfect for any tall girl who might want to rock them paired with a heel, but the drawstring waist also gives the option to secure higher on the waist when wearing a flat. The ribbing and the material give the pant a beautiful finish and they feel just as comfortable as they look. A solid win in my books, and closet!
The second item I chose was actually for a Christmas gift for my sister. Standing at 6′ tall I know she generally struggles with sleeve and pant lengths, so I opted for a super rad crushed velvet bomber jacket. The arms fit her beautifully!
The third item I chose, was a pair of pink crushed velvet loafers. They are absolutely adorable, and though I ordered a size 9, received a size 6 (when the packing slip said size 7). I’ve yet to exchange them but have my fingers crossed that the process will be easy and painless! (Though they carry tall clothing, their shoe selection only goes up to a size 10)
Has anyone else shopped from the Missguided Tall Clothing department? What has your experience been and how did your purchases turn out? Overall, I’m definitely interested in shopping there again!
