One of our favorite things to do is admire fabulous signature style, as you know. This is why we are so thrilled to announce the return of our Signature Style Series! To kick off the return of this fabulous foray into the most fashionable friends we have, we want to introduce you to Sarah Tucker. She is pure light and brightness from the moment you click onto her blog. We can’t wait for you to learn who she is, and get excited to continue to follow along with her life.
Emily McCarthy: How do you carry your signature style into all aspects of your life be it home decor, entertaining, or fashion?
Sarah Tucker: I love all things tassels, mixed metals, fun patterns … but I’m very classic too. I’m that way with my choices in the home, what I wear, and how I entertain. It’s nice to have some fun and surprising element, always!
EMc: What is your personal definition of “signature style”?
ST: Whatever you are naturally drawn toward – that’s your signature style. I rarely care if something looks ridiculous to someone, to me it works!
EMc: Give us three words to describe you. Why did you choose these three words?
laid back – I don’t always feel this way but it’s what most of my friends keep telling me I am. I also think this carries from my attitude to my style. I don’t like anything being too fussy. But maybe that is because I have two boys (:
empathetic – I am extremely empathetic. I feel things very deeply, and I tend to have a ton of compassion for people and their situations.
silly – my best self is a bit silly – with my family, my children, and my friends. Life should be fun.
EMc: What are three of your most prized pieces that you think fully represent your signature style? This could be a piece of furniture, jewelry, art, etc.
chinoiserie – I have so many ginger jars and blue and white chinoiserie vases. My mother always collected them and that obsession has carried over to me. Never too many!
my parents vows – I have the original typed up piece of paper of their vows framed.
photos – from our wedding photos to us becoming a family of three and now four. Our photos all over our walls remind me of my priorities always.
EMc: What is your best tip to encourage others to find and develop their own signature style?
ST: I don’t know why I like what I like, but I don’t fight it! I don’t try to talk myself out of it just because it’s not trendy or may be odd to someone else. And you shouldn’t either.
We are all so different and unique, and I love seeing that celebrated by everyone’s choices in their homes, through entertaining, and fashion choices.
Follow Sarah and get a taste of her signature style!
