Shametuck fail

Gap Jeans & Shirt â€ĸ Anne Klein Flats 

2085 words are lying nicely printed out next to me. My first essay is finished, and I’m still not sure about it, and everyone is still freaking out on Facebook but this thing is going into my professors mailbox first thing in the morning. Now it’s time for a bit of well-deserved blogging.

Haters gonna hate and tucking in your shirt only half tends to get a lot of hate. Especially the generation previous to mine doesn’t really appreciate it. *cough* Mom *cough*. I don’t really understand what my mom made such drama about yesterday, because I feel like this just-out-of-bed type of dressing is simply perfect for the weekend. I do need to admit that I suck terribly at getting it right though. I bought the shirt at Gap in London, after debating for a good half hour whether or not classic blue would be a good choice for me. It might not sound like a big deal, but when your dad is a prison guard and has these light blue shirts as a uniform you do not want to wear this. He can’t.stop.making.jokes. about it. I still love my shirt though, and because it’s such a classic, I have created quite a long list of imaginary outfits to pair it with. If my photographers are around, prepare to see this shirt a lot more this fall!

Now we’re talking fall: the fall foliage is coming, I just know it. Since my essay is now finished and I don’t have another assignment yet, K and I have planned a nice weekend outside. I know, Sunday was only yesterday and here I am already talking about the next. But you can’t blame me, because this is – next to Spring – the most awesome season. After sharing my “10 things I don’t like about fall” list last year, I thought I’d proclaim my love for the season more this year. Anyway, I just noticed it almost 5:30 and so I have to go pick up my in-laws at the Airport. Those lucky ducks were on a vacation to Zanzibar and my gosh, you should have seen the pictures they posted on Facebook. I can’t wait to hear their stories. I’ll be back on Thursday! See yah!

    I think the half-tuck is cute! And what do moms know anyway?

  • alex

    It looks really cute like that! Love these pictures and congrats on finishing your essay. I am still trying to complete mine, but for some reason I'm having trouble reaching the word minimum. Ah, the life of a student haha

  • Good shirt decision! And you totally got the look right this time!
    I've had similar convos with guy friends "why is only a part of your shirt tucked in?" – "because it looks good" – "…"

  • Zanzibar?! How worldly. I'm officially jealous. P.s.Girl, you could wear ANY color with that gorgeous red hair. Prison guard-esque or not, this outfit is cute. 🙂

  • I like this look, though I've no idea of where the half-tucked in thing came from as far as trends go. Anyway, you look great in blue.

  • This is by far my favourite outfit! How simple, and chic and stylish it looks! love it!

  • K W

    i love this top, perfect color for you.
    i also love the half-tuck, messy-tuck whatever you want to call it.
    my husband doesn't quite get it, but whatever.
    you look adorable.

  • Love your denim on denim look! I think the half-tuck look is cute on you!

  • Dat blauw hemdje staat je super goed, leuke outfit!

  • Can't go wrong with a classic look like this one! Looks great on you. 🙂 And I hear you about people hating on the fact of tucking in half of your shirt tail.. but to me, I think it looks very feminine! 🙂 I love it.

  • I think the classic blue like a white shirt will always be a style you can wear. Congrats on finishing your essay. Enjoy your week! 🙂 /Madison

  • Finishing papers always created a huge sigh of relief for me. I hardly ever came upon a paper I enjoyed writing! Love this simple look and the half tucked in shirt 🙂 I do it often too!

  • Melina

    Whether you're teased or not, you can never go wrong with a classic blue button-up! I'm also totally on your side and a fellow shame-tucker as well. Maybe our generation just can't commit to a full tuck. Nothing wrong with that! 😉

    Love the half-tuck!


  • Oh the half tuck, I swear that is hard to make look good.
    And prison blue is the first thing I thought about before I purchased my first chambray shirt, but I quickly got over, and now I wear it with everything.

  • libys11
