half tuck

I see gals doing the half tuck of dress shirts and blouses often, and I gotta say I find it odd. Sure it's a great way to show off a cute belt, but I can't help but think it looks like I just forgot to tuck in the other half. So the half tuck became a front tuck within minutes of heading out the door. I'm so boring.

blouse: H&M
jeans, belt and wrap bracelet: Garage

The half tuck is so pretentious in my mind. It looks great in a photo (aka the J Crew catalogue) but in 'real life' it just looks sloppy and weird.

Haha! Glad I'm not alone on this one!

Too funny!
I've tried this as well and just felt awkward... the Hubs was not a fan either!

Julia does this alot and it drives me nuts. I don't understand it at all.
It's almost as bad as wearing a jacket but not putting your arms in the f*cking sleeves that I have been seeing around blogland for months. DUMB!!!

I find it's slimming!!! - esp. if the shirt is a bit loose. Jen - you needed to pull it out of your pants a smidge...

Pulling it out won't help, the half tuck shouldn't exist!
