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


Oxford, MS

This past April for my husband’s spring break, we took a little road trip through the south with the ultimate destination of Oxford, Mississippi. John is a high school English Teacher and a huge fan of William Faulkner, so Oxford seemed like the exact right destination for our pilgrimage. We got to see Faulkner’s home, with writings on the walls and maps of his town Yoknapatawpa; we visited his grave with a little Jack Daniels in tow; and explored the quaint town of Oxford taking a few photos along the way.  (more…)

Memorial Day Weekend Sale Alert!

Memorial Day Weekend is upon us and you know what that means!! Sure, a long weekend, no work on Monday, drinks and plenty of sunshine, but also – SALES! We’ve rounded up a few of our favorites with  great pieces from each one to make things juuuuust a little easier! Happy shopping 🙂

First up Every girl has to have the perfect pair of jeans. This weekend take an extra 25% off Sale items from one of our favorite denim brands – 3×1.

I’ll let you in on a little secret – we loveeee our Calvins. Take 25% Calvin Klein Underwear!

Last, but definitely not least – Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly sale is going on now through June 4th.  There are almost too many good pieces to highlight – almost!

One of my favorite trends right now is slinky midi dresses. These incredibly affordable options will have you feeling effortlessly chic for work or play during the warm summer months.

If you’re like me, you wear out your favorite shoes and each year when summer rolls around you are in serious need for a new go-to pair! Here are some great options:

Have a great weekend, lovelies! xx 

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).  

Reb’s Wedding Revisited

As we enter Catherine’s wedding week, naturally, we are revisiting some of our favorite moments from my wedding. We thought it would be fun to do a little round up of pieces inspired by my wedding, so we can do the same for Catherine once we get her photos back.  I still love looking through my wedding photos and it’s always hard to choose my favorites. However, I will highlight a few favorite shots of the details, the bridesmaids dresses, the getting-ready gear and of course, the shoes, in case there are any bride-to-be’s out there looking for a little inspo or friends looking to remember the fun we had at The Homestead!

Melrose Georgetown Hotel

If you’ve been following along with TCP for any amount of time, you know that Catherine and I love a good hotel stay.  We’ve enjoyed staycations in Richmond and plenty of Fashion Week nights in countless hotels; so when we got the invite to come up to Washington, DC to stay at the Melrose Georgetown we jumped to the occasion!  Amidst all of Catherine’s wedding prep (ten days out!) this was the perfect getaway for the two of us to gallivant around a city that isn’t our own, as we are want to do. (more…)

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.
