The other day I met with a friend and did the partial-tuck thing with my shirt and was feeling pretty cool.  (The incident didn't happen in this outfit.  It happened in this one, but today's outfit just reminded me of it.)  But as soon as my friend saw me, she said, "OH, your shirt is doing something weird," and immediately reached over, grabbed my shirt, and yanked it out.  Once she realized that I didn't say thank you, she continued awkwardly, "Oh...unless you wanted it like that..."  I felt violated, but we moved on. 

Now when I walk outside with a partial tuck I have mild anxiety that one of my friends will suddenly pull out my shirt in an attempt to "help" me.  At least I know you fellow bloggers understand what that silly tucking business is about.  Thus...that is why I started a blog.


  1. I just found your blog--and I'm sad that I haven't been following it longer! I love your outfits and I think you're adorable. I'm officially a follower and subscriber!

  2. haha I think the partial tuck is cute.  Brave of you to attempt it again after your last experience.

  3. Ha! That's so funny! I've always had a love for the partial tuck but sometimes I wonder if people may misinterpret it as the result of a bathroom rush. =/ I don't do it as often as I'd like, but I want to change that. This outfit is cute with or without the tuck! :)

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog and your nice comments! I love meeting new bloggers :) So glad you found me because I love yours and your style - this is a great outfit, comfortable yet still casually sophisticated. That is funny about the partial tuck.. it looked great with the outfit you did it with! -Rachel (

  5. Oh! My! Gosh! I know what you mean when your fellow friends and family are not understanding the fashion statement! Ugh, it definitely is a confidence killer! I love this look! I just downright love stripes!

    Stop by my blog sometime! I am now following you!
