This past week was the kind of week I’ve needed for a long time. I took a train out of the city to go spend some time with my bestest best, Belinda; my longest and dearest friend. It’s probably been over a year since we’ve had some good quality girl time and what better way to take a break and reset, before summer kicks off.
With not much planned beyond hanging out with her beautiful 2-year-old son and catching up on all our goings on since the last time we saw each other, I was beyond stoked when she agreed to use some of our time together to get creative and shoot some awesome new summer goodies that Tall Girls UK has added to my closet.
This evening couldn’t have been more perfect. Though summer doesn’t officially begin until later this week, the warm air, dusty fields and low sun gave me all the summer feels, and I know I’ll be wearing his dress over and over and over again all season long. It’s lightweight and relaxed makes it feel like it’s barely there!

Flashback to February. I attended the most amazing tall women’s brunch hosted here in Toronto by tall blogger Bree of The Tall Society. For any of you who have yet to experience one of these brunches, I highly recommend checking her tour schedule HERE to see when the event will be in a city near you. There’s an unspoken understanding between tall women, and it feels so refreshing and empowering to spend time with those who just seem to get you (and your height!!).
We were sent home with little swag bags after our lovely afternoon with a selection of great discounts and gift cards for some tall friendly retailers, including two pairs (or should I say pears) of adorable socks from Woven Pear. Aside from the super fun prints and designs they offer, the best part about their socks? They fit up to a women’s size 12!! Which for any of you tall girls, you know that can be hard to find sometimes.
I had so much fun shooting this look with my girl Jazminn, who, at 6’1, is my tall partner in crime here in the city. She was my tall brunch date, and it was obvious that she’d help me out with this week’s look. Spending time with her continually reminds me how valuable it is to have women in your life who only love and support you and who generate nothing but positive energy.
