tall people probs

Sweater: GroopDealz (similar here & here) | Jeans: Old Navy | Booties (old): Alloy (similar here)

If you are 6' tall (like me) and have the hardest time finding "the perfect" jeans, you may do the happy dance (also like me) when you do find jeans that you love. Finding long jeans is hard enough. Even then, they fit weird, they have a saggy bum, and all of that fun stuff. I am not a fan of jeans. Mainly because I don't like pulling up my pants every time I move. Jegging material is definitely more my thing. Way too late, I came to find out that Old Navy has jeans for tall people online!! YEEE!!

I ordered a few fits and styles and sizes and these are the only ones I liked, but that sure beats the alternative. Guys, I am so excited about these. Yeah they are nothing special, but I LOVE them. My husband has the same issues, so I am excited to check out Old Navy online and see if we can get him some long jeans as well. #tallprobs sheesh. Our poor kids. :)

Thank you to all of you who joined in on our What She Wears link-up. Instead of just picking one, I had to pick two of my favorites.

aBree Fashion on the left: I LOVE fur and she rocks it. Simple, yet stunning. And don't get me started on the background. The outfit + fall gorgeousness is just perfection!

Wild One Forever on the right: Kristin rocks this dress and boot ensemble. I LOVE the layering with the socks and this darling cardigan. Nailed it!


Next month, the What She Wears Link-Up theme will be "Gold". You have a month to get your Gold ideas together. We can't wait to see what you come up with!! :)
