Tall Long Sleeve Sweetheart Neck Top

Banana Republic has got some cute spring tops instock in their tall sizes, but we’re still enduring snow drifts in my neck of the woods. So I’m all about the long sleeved warmth of this sweet top with a button detail sweetheart neck. I can still keep my arms toasty while remembering I do have some skin underneath all of these layers. Now pass me my mittens, will you?

Slimming Dress Pant

You’re addicted to all of those style shows on television like me, aren’t you? You know what Tim Gunn always says, “NO SIDE POCKETS!” Okay, he doesn’t shout it, maybe. But really who uses those? I never do. Look for pants (dress pants especially) without any side pockets as they’ll add extra bulk in an area where you really don’t need it.

This dressy pant from New York & Company features a slimming flat front, wide waist band, and no side/hip pockets. Perfecto. Inseam is 34.5″.
