Recently on Instagram, I was asked, “If you could only shop in one place for the rest of your life, where would it be?” The answer to that question has changed a LOT over the past decade as my style as evolved. When I was living in Utah (I’m from there!), I was not as partial to the colorful, preppy, feminine brands that I saw on women in the South, but in the last few years, that’s what I’ve started gravitating towards. I guess that’s what living in the South for over a decade will do to you ;).
So, the answer to that question now? Hands down, Tuckernuck. I love almost every single thing they carry. If I am shopping at another retailer. I’m not quite sure how I feel about any given item, I tend to ask myself, “Would Tuckernuck carry it?” and if the answer is yes, I feel confident in the style! It’s impressive to me that their clothes are great for both 20-somethings and the almost 40-year-old mom like me. It’s classic, American and feminine – everything I want my style to be!
They’ve become my go-to for dresses, earrings, shoes, and even home decor/gifts. The brand was started by Jocelyn Moore Gailliot, Madeline Moore, and September Rinnier in 2012. It has grown into huge online retailer since then. They source their items from only the best designers, and I’ve been introduced to some of my favorite brands through them.
In today’s post, I’m rounding up my favorite blouses from their current selection. I only own two of these. However, I plan to place an order after wrapping up this post since I’m always looking for elevated tops to pair with dark jeans, denim shorts, and white jeans in the summer.
Alrighty, here are the Tuckernuck tops I’m loving lately.
I’ve always been someone who loves stripes, and this relaxed, ruffle collar striped top is so effortlessly chic. I love how it’s styled with dark wash denim on the website. However, I know I’d also wear it often with white jeans and even casual denim shorts. I also love the price tag (under $100).
There’s nothing more me than this sweater. I love all things America, and this is such a tasteful sweater all year. I have the ivory version so that I can wear it in the summer. I’ve been surprised by just how much I’ve worn it! It’s pricey ($248.00) but since it’s a classic piece that I know I’ll wear forever, I don’t mind. It’s made with 100% cotton and I ordered an XS. It runs big, so size down or plan to wear it oversized. I love timeless, classic pieces that show my love for the United States!
If you love the look but don’t want this to be oversized, you will love the cropped version. It is SO cute, especially in the Beachwood color.
This white blouse is the breeziest summer shape with pretty ruffling on the collar and sleeves. I love the tassel details and since it’s 100% cotton, it will help keep you cool all summer. While white tops can be hard to invest in because they can easily stain, this is well worth the splurge because it can be dressed up or down. Imagine it with my favorite white jeans and colorful jewelry for a night out, or denim shorts and my favorite casual sandals for a daytime look. It comes in other colors as well!
I love that this top could be worn for work or dressed up for a night out! The button down front with a peplum detail is unique and polished (and I usually don’t like peplum!), and the fact that it’s sleeveless is another summer bonus. I feel a little intimidated by the tan color, but I felt the same way about these tan jeans and ended up LOVING them. It’s good to get out of your fashion comfort zone every now and then! AND the tan color motivates me to use my favorite self tanner too 😉
If there are two things I love, it’s stripes and button downs. And while I have already bought two different button downs this spring, I think I need this one as my third. The green color feels so fresh and summary, and the longer tail on the back of this top is super fun. This button down also has 3/4 length sleeves, making it just a touch more feminine.
Have you ever seen a more feminine tee than this? The floral puff sleeves are cute and frilly, while the rest of the tee is a classic slim fit. The material is cotton, so its lightweight, breathable, and easy to to dress up or down. I’d style this shirt with white jeans, denim shorts, and even overalls if I can find a pair that I like (maybe this white pair by Free People?).
I own this black top and LOVE the material! It’s ribbed, which I didn’t realize until it arrived, and I’ve really liked that it’s different than the rest of the tops I own! I find that it feels more dressy than casual, so I usually pair it with longer jeans instead of denim shorts, but that’s totally preference. The puff sleeves add a really fun, feminine detail, and the v-neck makes it easy to style with my favorite everyday jewelry.
The White Palmer Blouse is definitely on the more feminine side of tops that I go for, but I think it would darling with dark jeans or shorts. It’s nice to have some girly styles in your closet to wear when you’re dressing up just a bit more. I tend to stick to simple cuts and fits, but this would be a great option for summer dinners with friends! The smocked style top would also be a great option for nursing mamas — however, keep in mind that it’s cropped, so you’ll want high waisted bottoms for this.
How special is this green floral blouse?! I LOVE the deep scoop neck, puffy sleeves, and relaxed fit throughout. And I know that color would be stunning on every skin tone. The model shows it both untucked and tucked into jeans, and I honestly think both ways of styling it are super cute. One of the major perks of this blouse is that you don’t have to sacrifice comfort for style! AND it’s 100% cotton! Such a great find, if I say so myself.
If the color is described as raspberry pink, I’m going to buy it. This deep pink/red color blouse is stunning. I love the stand-up collar, puff sleeves with elastic details, button front, and relaxed fit. This is another one of those shirts that works well for all day wear since you’ll be comfortable yet chic for every occasion. It looks great both untucked and tucked into pants.
This next top is actually marked down, and miraculously, still in stock in a bunch of sizes! I absolutely love that it looks a bit like two separate layers but is actually just one top! The floral puff sleeves and ruffled hem mixed with the sweatshirt material of the chest and back make this a unique blouse for summer.
The last top I’m including in today’s roundup is this flutter sleeve blouse made in-house at Tuckernuck. The watercolored pattern is stunning, and the blues and greens are colors that I wear often and can pair easily with light or dark denim. I always love a sleeve like this, but find that they can be a little overwhelming on my petite frame. Thankfully Tuckernuck designed this specifically to have fun, but not massive, flutter sleeves. It’s also 100% cotton, so it’s easy to wear in the summer heat (in fact, this pattern will likely hide sweat too!).
That’s all I have today, but I’ll update this post if I spot other must-have Tuckernuck tops while I’m browsing.
