Hello fellow tall ladies! I am excited to be starting a new series "5 Questions with Liv Tall" where I will be chatting with fellow tall women to get to know them, share their stories and talk about all things TALL! My first post is with Beth... of the Tall Fashion Adventures Blog and Instagram. Beth's platform is all about tall fashion and is such a great supporter of ALL Tall brands. Take a few minutes to get to know Beth and if you don't already follow her on IG, go do that right after!
LT: Tell me a little about yourself!
B: I’m a 6’2 tall fashion lover who used to have a career in the legal field as an intellectual property paralegal, but I’ve been taking a break from that to do the stay-at-home-mom thing for the past 5 years. Since my husband is in the military, we move every 2 years or so and have had the opportunity to live all over the US and even in Germany twice which keeps life interesting! I’ve been blogging for over 13 years on my Tall Fashion Adventures website and my main passion is supporting ethical/sustainable independent tall brands! With all of the changes of moving so frequently, I love that my blog is one constant I can always take with me no matter where I’m living.
LT: What do you enjoy most about being Tall?
B: I like that my height often makes me more memorable and can also be a good conversation starter, whether in person or online. I have made some amazing friendships thanks to my height. I love that I’ve been able to meet some of my Instagram friends or fellow tall bloggers IRL and we’ve really hit it off, so much so that we’ve traveled around Europe together and stayed at each other’s houses. I also met one of my best friends because we’re both tall. I started talking to her at an event solely because she was the same height as me, and we realized we had a lot in common and became great friends. I never would have had these cool experiences without my height!
LT: What advice would you give to either yourself or young tall girls today?
B: Try to block out all of the negative noise surrounding your height and find a way to love it. People will unfortunately make annoying comments, will stare etc., but if you have made peace with how tall you are and own it, life will be a lot more fun. Also, seek out tall brands! I spent way too much of my teens and 20s wearing ill-fitting non-tall clothing and didn’t feel as confident in my fashion choices as I could have. There are so many tall sized options today…it’s very exciting!
LT: What is your favorite item in your closet?
B: My Liv Tall V-neck tees! I bought them in all 3 colors and wear them several times a week. They go with everything - skirts, pants, jeans and they layer well!
BTW we (Liv Tall) did not ask her for that answer! :)
LT: Favorite cocktail or drink?
B: Any kind of spritz - Aperol, Hugo, Lillet - I’m here for all of them!
