Tuckernuck girl Kelly is a close friend from the founders’ days at University of Pennsylvania, and although a math major and finance guru, Kelly has always dazzled us with her unique, chic style and creativity. Did we mention she could be a vintage clothing buyer? Most of her wardrobe consists of beautiful vintage pieces she casually finds on weekends while perusing second-hand boutiques and antique markets. Hailing from Pasadena, CA, our go-to gal for all things travel, food, culture and style inspiration gave us some of her latest inside tips while rocking her favorite Tuckernuck pieces in London.

"My favorite Sunday ritual is to head to the Columbia Road Flower Market in East London – which only happens on Sunday mornings. Even on rainy days (which aren’t so rare in England!), it’s brimming with Londoners, florists and tourists alike. Aside from the flowers, there are darling shops and galleries along the street as well as one of our favorite furniture stores, 2 Columbia Road, where we have gotten a number of great mid-century pieces for our home."

"My style in 3 words; black, white & buttoned-up. I wear a lot of high necks and button-downs buttoned all the way to the top. A classmate of mine in business school once asked me if I dressed this way ‘for religious reasons’ - I responded, ‘no, for fashion reasons.’ I’ve been incorporating more colors and patterns into my wardrobe recently, but when in doubt I usually stick to black & white & stripes."

"I work in the investment industry as an equity analyst for a large US mutual fund company where I help to research investments for the funds. What I love about my current job is that I get to essentially learn for a living. I spend my days trying to learn as much as I can about the industry or company I am looking at - interviewing CEOs, CFOs or traveling to meet with suppliers and competitors - all with the aim of understanding whether I think a company would be a good investment."
