What I Wore: Tucked In

Jeans, KappAhl; black long sleeved shirt, Seduction; patterned short sleeved shirt, a dress from Suzie Sheer; scarf, thrifted; shoes, not shown, Merrell

This dress-as-a-top looked great. I loved it just as much as I love wearing it as a dress (which is a lot), but I had momentary fits of rage against it. To shorten it I tucked the hem into the waist band of my jeans, then let the rest fall over to make it look like a hip length shirt. The problem with this plan was that every time I went to the bathroom, and after gym class, I had to tuck it back in. Evenly.

The flip side of the rather elaborate tucking was that I had an entirely stress free day, when it came to my shirt meeting my pants, since both shirts were all tucked in*.

What part of your outfit do you worry about?


*I don't care if that makes me sound like someone's boring mother, it made me feel fabulous.


  1. It looks lovely but I do hate annoying things like that!

    My least favourite things are:

    a) when the elastic has gone in a pair of tights so you end up spending the WHOLE DAY pulling them up


    b) if you are wearing a skirt suit, which sadly for my job I often have to and for some reason the skirt turns round all the time so it's back to front... possibly thats because it's too big but it is just infuriating!

  2. OMG!! I completely agreee with Frocks around the clock! I hate when I have elastic band issues with my tights.But the problem for me is that they are always rolling because of my jelly belly!
