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:

Cold Shoulder Little Black “Dress”

On any given day, I am likely to experience the short-torso struggle at least once.  From barely being able to see over the steering wheel in my husbands car, to the serious struggle of finding a one-piece that fits, the struggle is real for Reb over here. When I picked out this
“top” in my first Le Tote, I had planned on pairing it with a nice pair of flare jeans, but to my surprise (well, kind of surprise) upon trying it on, it was clearly long enough on me to be a dress.  Sure, its a taaaaad short, but who doesn’t like rocking a baby doll dress every now and again?  (more…)

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…)

Helena Quinn Floral Robe

Every quarter I get The Zoe Report Box of Style and like to incorporate it into my OOTDs, as you may have noticed if you are a long time TCP supporter. This past spring I fell behind and only ended up showcasing the earrings, but alas, what can ya do?  that being said, I have got to say that this summer box is my favorite to date! I loved last summer’s with the Michael Stars caftan, but this one really takes the cake! This Helena Quinn robe + Raen sunnies are just too fabulous for words – so I’ll let the outfit do the talking! I am in no way sponsored by The Zoe Report (although I would welcome that, of course); I just seriously think this product is one of the best subscription boxes out there! At only $100 it contains $400 worth of stuff and this one was seriously fantastic.   (more…)

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

Floral Frenzy with Urban Outfitters

Yesterday, Catherine shared her post in partnership with Urban Outfitters and I am so excited to share mine with you today! Where Catherine stuck to our usual black monochrome, I decided to step a little outside the box with this white floral midi number!  (more…)

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!*

Unconventional Wedding Attire

Most of the weddings I have attended in recent years happened to be ones where I was a bridesmaid. This meant that my get-up was chosen for me, or in collaboration with the bride, and I did not have to worry about that decision in the least!  When my cousin Caitlin’s wedding rolled around last week, however, I was excited to try something new.  I found these amazing pants at Zara while Catherine and I were in New York and knew instantly that I had to do something really cool with them.  (more…)

Sup Spring?

Nothing like saying ‘what’s up spring?’ with a trusty all black outfit. I mean, really, what else did you expect? As much as I keep trying to branch out with new pieces (and I really am trying), I always find myself coming back to black basics. It’s just so easy to mix and match my favorite black pieces to create new looks, no matter the season. Yes, I feel very redundant at this point, but alas, that’s about all I’ve got for you guys on this March Monday.  (more…)
