Aquarius Cocktail

We have told you guys time and time again about our love for simple, minimalist black and white pieces and today I’m bringing you the ultimate chic black top.  Aquarius Cocktail, created by Lissa Zwahlen Theony, brings you the perfect staple pieces, crafted with beautiful silhouettes, that you’ll want to live in. Lissa was the brains behind the creation of Roxy which launched the perfect surf style for women. Now she has decided to go in a different direction, creating the perfect feminine pieces in minimal form.

As stated in the about section of their website, her new venture’s  “concept has been created to layer into any existing wardrobe adding an easy sophistication to daily dressing.” AND NOW details about our GIVEAWAY!  (more…)

Poolside Favorites under $60 with Forever 21 & Quay Australia

Whether it’s an impromptu vacation or an invite to a poolside BBQ, styling your poolside outfit can get pricey if you aren’t careful. We got together and picked out our favorite swimsuits from forever 21 + sunnies from Quay that are under 60 dollars. The best part? They will make a big impact on the style effect of your outfit and you won’t break the bank! What’s your favorite piece this season for hanging out by the water?


Black + White for Summer

Here we go again, wearing black + white pieces in the middle of the summer! While we have been experimenting with patterns and prints this summer, we also like to stay true to our roots.  We’ve said it again and again, but we just can’t help gravitating toward neutral tones, denim and simplicity. Shop a few of our favorite pieces here >>   (more…)

Emma + Chloe

It is no secret that I have a serious affinity for all things French! From skincare products, to high fashion labels I really don’t discriminate.  I also have a thing for Subscription boxes as we saw in my last Box of Style post. On top of all of that, I love jewelry. I mean, really, who doesn’t?  However, my taste tends to be simple, yet elegant.  I haven’t ever really been able to pull of costume jewelry or major statement necklaces and I think that’s why I was so very pleased when this Emma & Chloe box landed on my doorstep and I saw what was inside!

Spotlight on: Mesh + Mirrored Lenses

We are big fans of layering in every season, to give looks added dimension.  While sweaters and the like aren’t very practical during the summer, we’ve found that you can pull of mesh and still be appropriately dressed for the weather.  Maybe not 100 degrees, but you know what we mean!  When we went to choose our picks for an Urban Outfitters shoot a little while ago, we unknowingly both picked out the same mesh top to layer under our different dresses.   On top of that, we both picked to wear extremely similar pairs of mirrored sunnies! I guess you could say that we tend to think alike in these scenarios, and we’ve been known to show up to events, dinners and happy hours dressed extremely similarly – but with our own Reb + Cathclaire twists. So, on that note, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite mesh pieces and mirrored sunnies for a little installment of Friday Favorites.  (more…)

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.

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.

The Perfect Summer Caftan

This past weekend we celebrated Catherine’s wedding to Kevin and it is safe to say that it lived up to our expectations and then some – well actually a lot more.  I won’t give away too many details; I’ll let Catherine do that when she’s ready to share some photos from the big day! I will say that we danced into the wee hours of Friday morning to the likes of Bieber, Spice Girls + Britney Spears, champagne in hand. And now, Catherine is down south in West Palm Beach enjoying her honeymoon with Kevin and I am extreeeeeemely jealous; I’m sure you all are too.  (more…)

Spotlight on: Culottes

In honor of Catherine’s nuptials this weekend, I thought I would do a little round up of the @cathclaire favorite: Culottes! No matter the time of year, you can find Cath wearing her favorite pair of denim culottes, a dressier pair of black ones, or a chic version of a gaucho style (not sure this is the best way to put it, but hey, you get it).
