All "Tuckered" In

Apparently, according to this blog, all I wear in the summer is this striped tee. See how I transformed it from plain to put-together here! I promise that I washed this and wore it several days after my last outfit post, but you canbelieve what you want ;) I have never been much of a tucker. What I mean is, I rarely ever tuck in my shirt unless I'm wearing a higher waisted skirt (which, in that case, it's a MUST!). I am pear-shaped so sometimes I feel like tucking in my shirt highlights my hip area more so than my smaller waist.

I got these jean shorts at Old Navy (along with a few other awesome things, which I'll be sure to recap in my end-of-the-month Budgeting Blogger post. See July's here) and was super thrilled with them. I have the hardest time finding jean shorts that fit because nine times out of ten they are always too tight and too short. I can't be strolling around with my booty hanging out--I'm a teacher! (And a respectable adult...) So when I saw these shorts were a "boyfriend fit" I knew I should try them on. While on many people these shorts would be slouchy and loose-fitting cute, they fit me as they should. They are a great length and they don't ride up at all! The only downside is that I need to wear a belt, which is where this outfit came into play. I had been home for the weekend and only brought this belt with me so I tucked in out of necessity and ended up really liking it!

Before I'm all "tuckered" out (HA I'm so punny sometimes), can anyone teach me how to effectively pull off the "half-tuck?" It always looks so stupid on me! Maybe I'm doing it wrong but all the other bloggers can do it :( Teach me your ways!

Thanks for being patient with my sporadic blogging. Life is a bit crazy. When is it not, I suppose?
