If you know anything about me, you'll know that I'm a big fan of Long Tall Sally.  The somewhat limited Tall range on the high street (or the internet really, since more and more stores now only stock their Tall products on their websites) makes me despair a bit - Petite, Maternity and Plus are all covered in a variety of stores, why not Tall?  Then there's the faff of working out which stores work with your measurements - that seems to rule out at least half in my case.  In the past year or so, I've been turning to Long Tall Sally first every time I'm looking for something new to wear.  Just before Christmas, I discovered the Hoxton jeans and became obsessed.  After buying them in black, Mother got me the indigo pair because I hardly took them off!  I'm just waiting for them to appear in more colours...hopefully...

A few weeks ago, Long Tall Sally got in touch with me and asked if I'd like to pick something from their summer collection to review.  Let's just say there was lots of squealing on my end, followed by a definite 'Yes!' in reply.  I picked the Jersey Stripe Jacket - there's a definite lack of light jackets in my wardrobe so I think this will come in handy.  It's a nice hip length, although the sleeves are crazy long!  Never thought I'd say that...  (I've tucked them under at the hem on the first pic and left them down on the second for comparison)  I tried the jacket on with a bunch of things this morning and it's definitely versatile, perfect for work and walks!  The fabric is thick enough to keep the wind out but good for layering up when the cold pops back...

  1. Great new pieces, the jeans look fantastic on you. I love Long Tall Sally (actually wearing an old pair of their jeans today!) but I always feel I'm almost too short to shop there properly, yet I'm bordering on too tall for mainstream highstreet (I'm almost 5ft 8, a frustrating height!)

    1. Ah that must be even more annoying actually, at least I'm in a defined section of the shop! These jeans are a great fit, they've kept their shape well too, maybe you could roll them up a bit ;)

  2. Fantastic jacket! I'm definitely going to take a look at Long Tall Sally jeans now, I can get away with highstreet for tops and jumpers but jeans, skirts and dresses are always too short! :)

    1. The jeggings are good too, pretty true to size. I like Monsoon for knee length dresses, they're safer for non tights season in the wind here! :)

  3. Ooh, I love it! The bottom left outfit is my favourite. I like Long Tall Sally tops - I wouldn't say I'm tall (I'm not sure what my height is though!) but I always feel my torso is short compared to my legs, so long tops help balance me out a bit :)

    1. I think the high street is getting better at long tops, I have that LTS tshirt in two colours tho, it's another thing I have on repeat! :)
