Emmy, Fianna, and Madeleine (aka “Moey”) are all lucky enough to live on St. Thomas, in the Virgin Islands. Emmy, older sister to Tuckernuck team member Sophie, and Fianna were both born and raised on the sunny Caribbean isle, while Moey recently moved there.
Once home to pirates, the island was eventually settled by Dutch Colonists in the 1600's. Today, the capital city's colorful streets and colonial architecture attract locals and tourists alike. These three met during their lunch hour in the heart of town, each one dressed in brightly colored, breezy Tuckernuck items. Their creative, casual work environments allow these ladies to layer colorful accessories with bright shorts and dresses for their days in the office. Emmy says of her shorts, "they have a great texture, and the fabric is a high-quality thickness, so they really resist wrinkles! The neon pink color is so pretty with aqua- my favorite summer color combo, of course!" Living among such colorful buildings, ample sunshine, and turquoise waters inspires the people of St. Thomas to dress with lighthearted simplicity all year round...we told you they were lucky.
Meet Allie and Sarah, sisters from Connecticut who now live in downtown Manhattan. Allie works as a stylist, dreaming up the perfect outfits for photo shoots for major magazines and celebrities, so we were thrilled when she agreed to share her expertise and style her favorite Tuckernuck items for this shoot. Sarah works for the morning news show, Good Day New York, and had been up since 4 AM the day of our photo shoot. We were extra grateful to her for being such a fabulous model.
Their unconventional work schedules allow these two to hang out during the afternoon between photo shoots and after work, so we met up with the girls at Allie's apartment, where Allie mixed items from her own closet with Tuckernuck pieces to pull together original, inspiring outfits for herself and Sarah. We then took a stroll through the West Village to catch some late spring sunshine.
Allie added a cool edge to our Manuel Canovas Bonnie skirt by pairing it with white Converse high tops, a chambray shirt, and our Sorbet Stud necklace. Sarah dressed down our Allover Lace dress with a neon cross body bag and adorable smoking slippers for a feminine, casual afternoon look.
Meet Carly, one of our favorite bloggers and go-to girl for all things prep. Carly launched her blog, College Prep, during her days at Georgetown University, right down the street from Tuckernuck HQ. She now writes from New York City, where she has managed to stay true to her classic style in spite of the overwhelming amount of trends that pass through the big city.
Carly works at a creative startup downtown, so dressing for work requires that she strikes a balance between looking both original and professional. We caught up with Carly near her office in Union Square where she pulled off the perfect weekday look in our Elizabeth McKay Brunch Skirt, Park Avenue Pearl Necklace, Sunday Bag, and Gigi All in One Case. The pop of color from Carly's skirt and bag added just enough personality to the outfit, while her crisp button-down and pearl jewelry kept her looking smart and polished enough for the office.
Co-Founder, Jocelyn (also known as Cupid), is known for her match-making prowess. She worked her magic at her birthday party a few years ago to set up Tara, her childhood friend, with JC, close friend from their days working abroad in Hong Kong. Sparks flew, and Tara and JC are now one of Tuckernuck's favorite couples. The two live in Brooklyn, so it made sense that they chose the Brooklyn Bridge as the location for our Tuckernuck Styled photo shoot this week. We caught the dwindling daylight on a warm spring night, and enjoyed sweeping city views with these two lovebirds while they sported their favorite Tuckernuck items. JC threw on his Castaway Mariner Jacket with olive khakis, a Hiho linen shirt, and a Smathers & Branson belt. Tara looked great in our Lauren Moffat Hairpin Shorts with her own denim jacket and form-fitting white tee.
We finally headed home after the sun sank behind the Manhattan skyline, but we're already looking forward to hanging out with this couple again soon.
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.
