The Crystal Press on The Crystal Coast: Pierless Too

We wrote a little bit about Atlantic Beach in Reb’s Free People Jumpsuit post, but here we will show you a few more photos of the house + beachfront views.  When The Crystal Coast asked us to come along on this weekend adventure they affectionately referred to the house as the sandcastle, and truly, it was.  Thanks to Blue Water, NC, we, along with other bloggers + photogs spent the weekend staying at Pierless Too. The 8 bedroom, 9.5 (yes, 9.5) bathroom house was a total dream and the views from the pool and the top deck were simply stunning!   (more…)

Picking a Veil for Your Wedding with Elle + Adhira

Every woman knows the emphasis that is put on a wedding dress and picking out your wedding veil is no different! Choosing your veil has the ability to complete, transform, or botch your wedding day look. That being said, I am sharing some additional photos of my Cathclaire wedding today to highlight a piece that completed my look: a veil by Elle + Adhira.


Twinning with a Twist at Shape Soirée

As you guys have probably seen, if you follow along with our adventures, we have been hitting the twinning thing pretty hard lately.  It’s fun, it’s catchy and its a great conversation starter!  However, in the weeks leading up to our Conscious Conversation at Shape Soiree, we weren’t sure if it would be a distraction, or an expected occurrence.  Between missed clothing shipments and just general last minute planning, we decided not to intentionally twin.  But…..


Free People on The Crystal Coast

Looking back at the photos from our trip, I am instantly reminded how amazing it was! Our House, Pierless Too was a total dream and the view was even more stunning! You can be sure that in the coming weeks you’ll get to see it all. However, I will say a few things about Atlantic Beach here.


Striped Culottes with Need Supply

Is there anything better than striped culottes from Need Supply Co or a beach trip in October?

The Crystal Press had the pleasure of exploring The Crystal Coast last weekend in North Carolina and I have to say, that area is a true gem on the east coast! Rebecca and I will be sharing a travel blog post about everything we did while we were exploring Beaufort, Morehead City, and Atlantic Beach but for now, I had to share these culottes and this cool Aerosmith tee from Forever 21 with you all!


My Fall Uniform: PJs and Skinnies

This fall I have taken to repeating outfits, like, all the time. If you have seen me in the past few weeks, you will no doubt recognize this pajama top.  I’m taking that whole matching sets / pajamas-can-pass-clothes thing to a whole new level this fall and let me tell you, I’ve been extreeeeemely comfy.  I scored this PJ set during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale this summer and have been waiting for the cooler temps to be able to put them in my outfit rotation.  Luckily for me, fall is here and the time has come to rock my new Fall Uniform on repeat.

What are your go-to fall favorites? Let us know in the comments below!


Why You Need A Black Hat for Your Fall Fashion Statement Piece

The ultimate fall fashion statement piece: the black panama hat. Where has this black hat been all my life? For the amount of time it has saved me getting ready (you know, doing my hair and what not), I could just kiss it!  I wear this hat all the time and love the statement it makes with minimal effort. I have rounded up some hats for you guys that are great styles and price points >>

As I sit here writing this + thinking to myself that I need more pieces with this statement effect in my wardrobe………I have an AHA moment and realize that this entire outfit is a statement with minimal effort. These Matisse shoes are super comfy (the heel height is that sweet spot where it’s a party for your toes while providing the tallness this lady needs) and this ASOS White dress makes me feel like one million bucks. Some (my husband…) may say it is similar to a paper bag but I say it’s fit for a queen…to wear 3 days in a row. Yes, I did wear this dress 3 days in a row and I plan to wear it again soon! Take that, Regina George.

Twinnning at NYFW in Stripes


Everyone is trying to turn heads at NYFW, we all know that.  And while we aren’t all supermodels or can’t all be decked out in head to toe Gucci or Miu Miu, there are definitely other ways to stick out.  We opted for these matching striped sweaters from Zara, and wore them on repeat.  Not to brag or anything *ahem* but we did turn quite a few heads and it was an excellent conversation piece.
