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, and 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!

Tuckernuck has become my go-to for my closet and home and I have a handful of roundups on the blog:

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 womens clothes from only the best designers, and I’ve been introduced to some of my favorite brands through them.

By the way, if you’re also shopping for designer denim to wear with your Tuckernuck tops, you have to check out the deals from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. They have so many brands that Tuckernuck carries, and many of them are deeply discounted right now. See my denim picks from Nordstrom linked here.

10 Tuckernuck Tops

In today’s post, I’m rounding up my favorite blouses from their current selection. I haven’t had a chance to place an order yet this spring, but I have a VERY big cart built online after refreshing this blog post. I’m always looking for elevated tops to pair with jeans, my favorite denim shorts, and white jeans in the summer. Tuckernuck has such fun top options, but some are a little busy for my taste (they make sleeveless blouses with ruffled collars and bow backs, patterned tops with feather details, and of course leather and suede tops in the cooler months).

I like to stick to more simple styles, so here are the Tuckernuck tops I’m loving lately.

Black Eyelet Hastings Blouse

The tiny eyelet detail on this black Hastings blouse is so cute. It’s sheer but not see-through. I love that you can wear a regular bra without it truly showing through, but the texture adds some fun interest. The puff ruffled sleeves are pretty big, so I appreciate that the neckline is a v-neck to draw the eyes towards the chest instead of right out to the shoulders. This should be able to wear this all summer with dark jeans, denim shorts, or white jeans.

I got a size XS in this top and it runs true to size.

Blue Stripe Rae Blouse

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). The high neck ruffle collar, short cap sleeves, and a button front placket make this the PERFECT popover blouse for spring and summer.

Ivory Americana Sweater

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.

White Kaia Flutter Sleeve Tee

There’s nothing more useful to have in your closet than a feminine ruffle sleeve tank. It can be worn on its own with jean shorts or jeans, and it can also be tucked into a maxi skirt. I love that the ruffles stand out a bit and make a statement, but they aren’t overpowering or overwhelming for a petite frame. This top is under $100 and a classic you’ll wear into the ground. If you can make it work in your budget, get both the white and black.

If you’re nursing a baby right now (like me!), then opt for this similar option with a button down front neckline.

Paulina Top

I love that this Paulina 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. Unfortunately each colorway is sold out of a few sizes, but if you click through all three options, you’ll find your size in one of the colors.

I also really love this Strapless Noir Crepe Marin Top. It’s a great night-out option that can be toned down with a cashmere wrap or denim jacket. Similar to the Paulina, but a bit more sexy.

Selena Blouse

If the color is described as raspberry pink, I’m going to buy it. This Selena 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. And it comes in a handful of colors, so if raspberry pink isn’t your thing, you’ll still find something you like. This Poppy Stripe Margot Top also has that same fun raspberry red color in it, but with a slightly more streamlined silhouette, if that’s more your style.

Floral Sleeve and White Shelby Tee

Have you ever seen a more feminine tee than this floral sleeve white tee? 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, my favorite denim shorts. Even a cute pair of overalls, if that’s your style.

Black Livia Puff Sleeve Top

I own this black Livia puff sleeve 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.

Lilac Clayton Long Sleeve Knit Polo

I love a lightweight summer sweater, especially for women who work in an office! It’s always freezing cold inside in the south during the south because everyone is blasting their AC, so a lightweight sweater like this Clayton Knit Polo is a great top to wear to work. I love this lilac color too (I’m on a big purple kick right now), and the fact that it’s just slightly cropped so that it will meet your work pants without needing a front-tuck.

Navy Veronica Top

A simple sleeveless tee is a closet essential for me. I really like the ruffle detail on the neckline of the Veronica top. It’s simple, not distracting, and can be worn easily with shorts or jeans. V-necks are always more flattering on me than a crewneck. So, I’m going to add a few colors to my cart.

That’s all I have today, but I’ll update this post if I spot other must-have Tuckernuck tops while I’m browsing.
