Tuckernuck Must-Haves

I’m loving Tuckernuck’s spring collection. Over the last few years, I’ve felt myself majorly shift from statement pieces to staples and basics for easier living, and Tuckernuck always has the best mix-and-match options. Here’s what I adore this season:

MZ Wallace Quilted Tote: This is the best MZ Wallace tote. It comes with a strap that won’t fall off your shoulders—and can be worn as a crossbody—and it has its of interior pockets and pouches to keep you organized. It also slips onto a carry-on suitcase, which is incredible. (Won’t fall off as you’re racing around the airport trying to make your flight!) The bag is super squishy and fits into tight spaces when need be, too. Oh, and it doubles as a pillow for sleepy children.

Blooms Dress: SO PRETTY, right? I’m a huge fan of Tuckernuck dresses because they’re classic-looking and usually travel exceptionally well, and this number might need to join my closet soon. ;) Love how easily it could be dressed up or down!

Natural Striped Dudley Stephens Fleece: YES! These are normally sold out on the Dudley Stephens website, so love that it’s available via Tuckernuck. I can’t tell you how often I wear mine. I think of it as a warmer striped tee, haha. It’s a four-seasons staple!

Navy Striped Dudley Stephen Fleece: Here it is in the navy. (I actually ended up purchasing a second navy striped version because it was always in the wash!)

Raffia Lantern Earrings: These are incredibly lightweight and make outfits look SO polished! They’re the only statement earrings I ever take with me on vacations. If you’re interested in other colors, here are all the available ones.

Natural Tote: Love how much this carries.

Hydrangea Shirt Dress: This is the hydrangea version of the original Striped Royal Shirt Dress—my favorite dress in the history of the world. ;) I wear it constantly in the warmer months, and it’s another perfect travel piece. Looks really cute with a crewneck sweater or fleece worn over it, too. Runs a little large; I would recommend either ordering your normal size for a relaxed look or going one size down.

Navy Barbour Jacket: Every girl needs a Barbour jacket for spring—especially in Chicago! Navy is obviously my favorite.

Striped Poncho: I haven’t tried this poncho yet, but it looks adorable on the model.

Striped Shirt Dress: THIS IS THE DRESS. Buy it. You won’t regret it.

Striped Long-Sleeved Tee: Love the drop shoulders on this one!

Floral Blouse: The wrists are what get me with this one.

Sandals: I’ve been eyeing these for years! Look like the Hermes originals but are reportedly much comfier.

Pink Shirt Dress: A maxi version of my favorite!

Pearl Stud Earrings: For everyday life, this is what I’m wearing the majority of the time. (Although recently also these pearl bow earrings from J.Crew Factory.)

Saint James Striped Dress: This is actually in my cart! I’ve been after the perfect striped t-shirt dress for years, and I think I might just cave and go Saint James. Word on the street is that SJ runs a little small, so I might recommend going up a size or two.

Bow Hat: Another staple I’ve worn for years. These SCRUNCH—so you can shove them into bags and not worry about damaging them. They come in tons of colors, too. Sun protection but make it classy!

Americana Sweater: Do you not picture yourself in the sand, wine in hand, in this sweater? I mean… that’s enough of a visual for me.

Terry Sweatshirt Dress: Can you get over that ruffled collar?!

Ivory Dudley Stephen Fleece: The off white is such a classic! Looks great with white jeans, too, because of the slight dimension the off white color provides.
