She Wears a White ASOS Dress

I love you summer, I really really do. However when it is peak summertime in RVA, the stifling temperatures can make getting dressed a little daunting/sweaty. There is nothing I like more than an effortless t-shirt dress when it is super hot out. I especially love this one from ASOS because of the tie detailing on the shoulders! What did you guys do (and wear) this weekend? I hope everyone stayed cool! Check out pieces from the outfit I’m wearing below:

One Teaspoon Frankie’s + My Favorite Jean Shorts for Summer

one teaspoon frankie jean shorts summer

I, cathclaire, am very proud to present you with my favorite pair of jean shorts for summer and what my husband likes to calls “droopy drawers.” (I should probably be embarrassed to write this on The Crystal Press….?) Needless to say, he isn’t the biggest fan of these One Teaspoon Drop Crotch Frankie shorts, but despite the borderline weird name –  I cannot help wearing them all the time. It’s like they are my soul mate in jean shorts from that make me feel like a BA.*  I love the cut on the sides of each leg, the exaggerated frayed hem, and – if I am being perfectly honest – the drop crotch makes them the most comfortable jean shorts I own.

While I would like to think that I am the only person in the universe who loves these shorts, sadly, they are sold out. (and they went QUICK!) That being said, I have spent some time rounding up some shorts (that are some of my favorites) for you guys that are similar if you want to try out the distressed Bermuda short look this summer!

PS – I found a One Teaspoon white version on Nordstroms rack for uber cheap. Check em out here.

**** badass

I added several styles of stilettos that I think balance out the long shorts perfectly for you guys into the roundup above! Think embellishments + girly details to juxtapose the droopy drawers thing. (more…)

Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore

Whether you are craving a last minute getaway or a family vacation, grab your favorite bathing suit and head to Four Seasons Baltimore! With an infinity pool, waterfront views, and an award-winning spa – you will quickly sink into relaxation mode. I know once the poolside bartender handed me my pina colada, I sure did!

Our Summer Style

Instead of bringing you guys a fresh OOTD today, we thought it would be fun to round up some of our favorite day-to-day looks that tend to capture the epitome of each of our at-the-moment styles. Our styles are ever-changing, but our more casual moments tend to show our more Reb + Cath classic styles.  You may have seen a few of these on our instagrams, but here are a few snapshots of our favorite summer trends and pieces!We are obsessed with White Shirt Dresses this summer! They have such an effortlessly chic vibe that we love. Catherine took this little number on her honeymoon and its safe to say, it’s currently on repeat.

California Cathclaire

After a little blogging break, I am happy to say I am back and married and throwing OOTD’s your way today!

How do you guys feel about the embroidered denim jacket trend? I am into it in a big way and of course could not turn down this California embroidered jean jacket from one of my favorite spots: Forever 21.

This jacket just sold out today so I have linked some other jean jackets that I have my eye on and the other pieces in my outfit! Hope everyone is enjoying their week so far and that you didn’t miss cathclaire too much! xo

Spotlight on: OTK Boots

Reb here! If there’s one thing that I love about Cath, it’s her innovative, dynamic style that transcends any given season. You can find her wearing slip dresses in the winter and sweaters in the summer and most recently I’ve noticed her proclivity for wearing Over The Knee boots during any season.

May Baby

I have come to the conclusion that one of my “talents” (aka favorite past times) is the mere act of celebrating and I will use just about any excuse to do so. I am a lover of dance floors, birthdays, New Years, Halloween, and well… all holidays. That being said, yesterday was my birthday (May the Fourth be with you, too) and I quickly realized that everyone around me is hugely talented in the celebrating department as well. From my friends and family near and far, to ya’lls sweet messages, my fiancè, Reb, and Buddha the maltipoo – yesterday was surreal and that is just the beginning of, what I know will be, one of the best years of my life.

Forever 21 Friday

When it comes to navigating through the wonderuflness that is Forever 21, you either love it or hate it.  I have been shopping there since I was 13 and several people have told me I am “good” at Forever 21, Reb included. A shopaholic-induced broke girl is kinda forced to be good at Forever 21, am I right?

The Perfect LBD for Spring

Right now, I am not the kinda gal who likes to jump into Spring with lots of prints and bright colors and if you have been following along with our TCP journey, I’m sure you’ve seen my tendency to lean towards darker hues regardless of the season. Rebecca and I have partnered with Urban Outfitters to share with you some of our favorite pieces for the new season! *Stay tuned for hers next!*
