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.

    You wear this color so well, I don’t think I could pull it off! I like both styles, but tucked in more!

    You are seriously too cute in pink. I just adore that black hat on you! I love gift guides, especially for women and men. I enjoy getting ideas for myself and my husband is so hard to shop for, so I like ideas for him. I also like glam ideas for Christmas/New Year’s Eve looks, as I usually go out for one or the other. 🙂

    I love it both ways! I love a tuck, but sometimes I struggle with the way it looks from the side.

    Your sweater is so pretty and I love your hat! I love gift guides that include useful everyday items!

    Usually I am always a fan of the tuck but I think this look you can definitely do both and I am leaning more towards untucked!

    I like it tucked best. You have such a beautiful body that tucking it really highlights your slender frame.

    Such a cute sweater! I love gift guides! Especially unique gift ideas

  • Reply beautygirl24 November 1, 2017 at 4:22 pm

    Love you in this gorgeous hot pink! Personally I like ponchos and looser tops like this untucked / it just looks less fussy to me! But both are great on you because you have height on your side 😉

    I’d love to see holiday outfit ideas! Not just dressy though because my family never dresses up!

  • Reply Laura Boswell November 1, 2017 at 4:14 pm

    It looks beautiful on you both ways! I love the color pink you chose!

  • Reply Mica November 1, 2017 at 4:07 pm

    That pink is beautiful on you! 🙂 I’m always a fun of the front tuck, as I’m petite so if I didn’t tuck most things they’d swamp me. I often seek out ‘long line’ tops from my favourite brand just so I can tuck them, ha! I’m sure it’s not the most logical way to do it…

    I’m not really a gift guide person but I asked last year and some people seemed interested so I might try to do it again this year if I get time. It’s a struggle putting blog posts together sometimes!

    Hope you are having a nice week so far! 🙂

    I love the pink sweater on you! Black Friday deals stress me out honestly. Family picture ideas are always fun and I do them each year for our Christmas card!
