Shame Tuck



The shame tuck: When only half your shirt is tucked in. A favourite look of fashion bloggers painfully trying to create casual nonchalance.


Welcome to Sunday and another working week. I have only a few days before I pop back to the UK for the weekend (cannot wait: a) my sister is getting married and b) I get to go to Superdrug J so I am counting the “sleeps”.

I had one meeting today and then it was a lot of PowerPoint so I went with something a little bit together but also a little bit sloppy and relaxed. It was hard to get a good picture of this outfit. I think it’s the silky joggers – they are super comfortable but perhaps not the most flattering of items in my wardrobe.

Everything else that I wore is a favourite: the GAP denim shirt (perfect tone and fit) shame-tucked into my joggers, the Zara blazer, the silver flats (go with everything), the blue Ray-Bans and the pink handbag. I also broke out the Bobbi Brown “Razzberry” Creamy Matte Lip Color to add a bit of “something” to my face. I love that product – great shade and great lasting power.

Shirt: GAP – Link!
Silky trousers: Zara (old)
Blazer: Zara (old)
Sunglasses: Ray-Ban – Link!
Bag: Givenchy Antigona – Link!
Shoes: ASOS – Link!
Lipstick: Bobbi Brown – Link!

Right, so back to my UK trip. There are a couple of dead certs that I want to add to my basket: Barry M Coconut nail polish and Dove Summer Glow gradual tanner. After that, I am open to ideas so let me know if there are any major new releases that I need to be alert for!

See you tomorrow!

  2. The new Falsifeye mascara from Seventeen is pretty fab as are the new cream blushes from Bourjois, but the best thing to do is to just peruse the aisles and enjoy being able to throw things into your basket sans guilt because we all know that the rules in life clearly state that purchases on holiday don't count ;)

    Enjoy the wedding!

    1. When you half tuck your shirt into your trousers/pants. As if you forgot to get dressed properly :)

  4. I'm attending a wedding also in a couple of weeks and hoping to update my blog on what outfit I wear then. Oh you should try the Barry M gelly nail paint, especially in baby pink. It's a new line and it gives a perfect gloss x

  6. Love the Dove Gradual Summer Tanner, I use it in place of my body moisturizer at night and it helps mantain a nice color. I completley understand your excitment about going to superdrug, I am off to San Francisco next week and can't wait to raid CVS ans Sephora. I've already put the Full Cover Concealer by Makeup Forever on my shopping list, what shade do you wear?
    Have fun in the UK!

  8. Your shame tuck made me giggle, I think because your observation is so true!!!!
    I am currently slathered in Dove Gradual Tan and therefore have no other items to add to your list!!!

  10. Ha! I did a bit of shame tucking today for my blog with my new Topshop shirt! Gotta love the shame tuck! :)

    How exciting... a trip to Superdrug! I'm sure I saw two new shades in the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvets today....I might be wrong though but I'm sure they have a 7 and 8 and they only had 6 before! Tanya Burr glosses too, see if you can get Chic :)

  14. HA the "shame tuck" is the perfect name for it...who would think that the most casual looking styles often take the most effort to attain (beach hair, anyone?)

    Great outfit! I love that pretty pink bag so much. Enjoy the UK and buy lots of goodies!

    Love, Gigi

  16. If you are going to Superdrug then the collection 2000 eyeshadow pencils are a must! They are £2.50 each (massive bargain) and they do not budge. I cooked toad in the hole yesterday and even my super hot oven did not shift that bad boy. I bought the colour 'Vintage' and it is gorgeous:
