Spring Old Navy Finds For Tall Girls! Maxis & Jeans

Spring Old Navy Finds For Tall Girls! Maxis & Jeans

When people meet me for the first time after seeing me on Youtube, my blog or social media, usually the first comment is, “I didn’t realize you were so tall”. I’m not suupppeerrr tall, but I’m about 5’10” so definitely above average and taller than most men.

As you can imagine, shopping is pretty hard. Generally I have to buy designer jeans so the length will be okay on me. Maxi dresses, Forget it!!! Everything in most stores, I can forget about it unless I don’t mind it looking cropped :/

Online! That’s a whole other story. One of my favorite places to shop in is the TALL section is OldNavy.com

If you order a Tall in this dress, it is much longer than the pic above. When I put it on as a dress, it was definitely on the ground with flats on. Perfect length!! I didn’t try to do it as a skirt but if I did, I would have to make it high-waisted I’m sure or it will be waaayyy too long. Getting their maxi’s in long help out so you don’t get that awkward length. Like the model above (who is 5’9″), I don’t like that length on me. It either needs to be obviously shorter or ¬†grazing the ground. Just my personal opinion. Their Tall Maxi-dresses are PERFECT for the girl 5’9″ and up!!

Old Navy’s Rockstar jeans are my FAVORITE inexpensive jeans! (Can be purchased HERE). They have the perfect stretch and they come in a variety of sizes (Up to a 30 & come in petite, regular with different inseams and tall). I will say, I have been a Rockstar fan for yeeaarrrrsss and then all of a sudden maybe 3 years ago, it appeared they changed up their fabric and I didn’t like the new ones. It also could’ve been because they were colored jeans. I hear that colored jeans have a different make up than regular blue denim jeans. They weren’t as stretchy. This past year, I am back in with my beloved Rockstar jeans. They seem back to normal –even the non-blue denim! They hug every curve and are stretchy. Whatever they did, they are back to my favorite jeans!!

I ordered these distressed jeans (can be found here) and these camo ones (can be found here) seen below.

The TALL in these jeans don’t look like the models above. They are super long and perfect if you are going to wear heels and still good if you wear flats. If I am going to wear flats, I will either wear them bunched up at the bottom or fold them neatly at the bottom.

*Note- Make sure you get the TALL and not LONG inseam. There is a difference in probably 2 or more inches.

Do you have a hard time finding maxis, skirts, and jeans for your height?
