To Tuck or Not to Tuck? + Link Up

November 1, 2017

To tuck or not to tuck? That is the question. I am pretty obsessed with this hot pink tunic sweater. It comes in multiple colors, is the perfect length for jeans or leggings (remember I am 5’10”), and has a great mock turtleneck. In a totally uncharacteristic move, I picked the hot pick over one of the more neutral colors. I won’t lie, I am loving it. It goes with regular jeans and my black jeans or leggings equally well. I ordered my normal size, and I love the fit.

When I was planning this post and my outfits, I couldn’t decide whether it looked better tucked in the front or out. I took pictures both ways and wanted you all to weigh in. Which way do you think is more flattering? I think tucked creates more of a long leg line but also a bit of a front pouch if you know what I mean. Untucked doesn’t have the pouch but also has less shape. Thoughts?!

Reader Question  – Holiday Content

I’d also love your feedback on anything you’d like to see holiday content wise. Like it or not, today is the first day of November (where did you go October?!) and it is time to start thinking about Christmas presents, Christmas cards, and more. Let’s be real, I am thinking about all I am going to eat on Thanksgiving first. Leave me a comment! I just created a holiday shop page that I’d love for you to check out. I rounded up some of my favorite pieces perfect for the holiday season and all your holiday parties.

    Well I love the bold, bright color of that sweater–I think you made a good choice getting the pink! I love the holidays and would be happy to see anything you mentioned. I do love gift guides, although I admit that sometimes I get overwhelmed with all the ones out there. I also love Thanksgiving outfit ideas–I always need some inspiration there!

    I really like it untucked as it shows off the sweater more. The colour really suits you well and you 5’10 figure 😉

    Both are cute! I often lean toward tuck because it looks more styled that way. I love the bright pink. Not a color I normally wear either, but it looks great! I like gift guides- usually the for him guides are the most helpful, and I also like holiday outfit inspiration- whether it’s for a fancy party, or even just ideas on what to wear to family dinner. Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

    Both work but I prefer tucked and that color was a really good choice Amy Ann.
    Oh and in regards to your questions, I sometimes get a little geezy with all the Holiday content, it can get to be just too much.

    I think both ways look nice. It’s nice to be able to switch it up a little!

    Oh I wrote about this today too haha, about tucking in the sweater as a way of creating balance. I love it! And that pop of pink is adorable, suits you so well! Xx

    You look so darn cute…especially in that hat! I like both of these — tucked and untucked.

    Love the cut of the pink turtleneck! I like that it is more of a wider fit. I’m not a big holiday content person, partly because I see so much and it begins to feel similar (kind of like the Nordstrom Sale). But if it were unique in some way I would probably check it out.

    I’m definitely a fan of tucking in! You look SO chic and there’s everything to love about this outfit, especially those boots… perfect!

    I love this pink sweater on you, and it looks great both ways! I’m such a tucker myself, so that’s what my vote would be. Also love the hat on you!

  • Reply Natalie November 1, 2017 at 10:05 am

    Ooo I think you rock it both ways but I LOVE the front tuck! It adds a little extra “chic” to any outfit. This pink looks lovely on you, Amy Ann!


  • Reply Emily November 1, 2017 at 9:46 am

    I am all for the front tuck! In fact it’s the only way I wear any top these days! Love the bold pink colour.. it’s so pretty!

    I have had this sweater in my shopping bag for a month and still haven’t bought it. I really need to because I love the color! For me, I like it untucked. Since it’s kind of oversized, the untucked plays into that well I think. Looks cute both ways on you, but the pouch always drives me nuts on me! Happy Wednesday, Amy Ann!
