Meet Cara and Josh, close friends of Maddy, September and Sophie. Cara and Josh met in DC and were quick to hit it off, bonding over their professional interests: cyber security and counter-terrorism along with a passion for gourmet food. While most of their time is spent in Dupont, they often enjoy making the trek to Georgetown to enjoy some ice cream cones from Thomas Sweet, a trip to Tuckernuck HQ or a meat grinder from Stachowski's Deli.
Meet Rachel, the very talented lifestyle photographer and Creative Director of Gray's Lane. Rachel is not only a friend of the Tuckernuck Team but also a mother to three beautiful children, Sara (11), Lila (6) and Holt (6). Pictured here with Lila in our new Sail to Sable and Snappy Turtle Kids Mommy & Me seersucker tunics, we can't help but get excited for the launch of Tuckernuck Tots (coming soon!). We have Rachel's 11-year-old, Sara, to thank for these awesome pictures. Looks like the apple does not fall far from the tree...
Corey and Lindsay, good friends since their days at Penn, have lived in D.C. for years and become some of Tuckernuck's most loyal fans. After stopping by the showroom for a Saturday afternoon of shopping, they decided to enjoy some much-anticipated spring weather at Leopold's, a Georgetown staple for outdoor dining.
Corey picked out our Two Penny Blue blazer to pair with our Cooper and Ella blouse. Her versatile look worked perfectly for a Saturday afternoon lunch date, but could have just as easily carried her through a day at the office.
Kafe Leopold serves inventive, Austrian fare in a courtyard with a bubbling fountain and fresh flowers--one of our favorite spots for al fresco meals in Georgetown.
Lindsay threw on our Asha Else Stud Earrings, which turned out to be a perfectly polished compliment to her flea-market-found bag and retro-inspired printed skirt.
Meet Molly Fienning, one of our favorite Tuckernuck fans and a fellow entrepreneur. Molly co-founded Babiators, the market-leading sunglass company for babies, an idea that stemmed from Molly's husband's role as a Marine Fighter Pilot. Molly explained, "All military pilots are issued aviator sunglasses with their wings. Their spouses wear them, too, but the kids didn't have any cool, durable options...That's how Babiators was born!" We were thrilled to spend some time with Molly, her husband, and her son last week.
We met up with the beautiful female founder and mom at her apartment in New York, where she paired our Loren Hope Gwyneth Necklace with several different looks, proving that the right statement accessory can keep you looking polished on even the busiest days. As Molly put it, "I love making a strong statement with a cool necklace, pair of sunglasses or bag--it can completely change an outfit. I was immediately drawn to the Loren Hope necklace because of its beautiful, art-deco design. I'm a New York City girl born and raised, so the necklace reminds me of the sparkling skyline at night. It makes me smile when I wear it, and it suits my personal style perfectly-- feminine and flirty with a bit of an edge." We love how this city girl and savvy entrepreneur wore one of our favorite accessories as she dressed for work, playtime, and date-night.
Next, she dressed it down for playtime with Sawyer, her son.
Later that day, Molly stopped in to meet with some clients at a neighborhood baby store. She wore the necklace with our Gigi All in One clutch and printed Shoshanna pants for a lively, but chic professional look.
Finally, Molly dressed for datenight with her husband and Babiators co-founder, Ted. She wore the necklace to add some sparkle to a classic little black dress.
We were thrilled when the fabulous D.C. style bloggers Lauren and Van stopped by our Georgetown headquarters to share an afternoon of shopping, coffee, pastries, and cocktails. We've admired their blog Necessary & Proper for some time now, and it was great to see how they styled their favorite Tuckernuck items. Van opted for a brightly-colored gingham button down with a contrasting bow tie, along with our bold blue pants from Castaway for cocktails along the waterfront with Lauren. Lauren looked extremely chic in the elephant wrap dress, which she playfully accessorized with the elephant bangle, pave link bracelet, and this gorgeous flowy scarf.
For coffee and shopping around Georgetown, we loved how Van paired the Salmon Cove shirt with our favorite pink shorts, finishing off the look with a bright belt and great cashmere sweater. Lauren opted for the fun lobster sweater and scalloped shorts, accessorizing with cute flats and a bright red nautical belt.
