Box of Style – 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.

Something Old, Something New

With Catherine and my sister getting married in the next few months, I guess you could say I’ve always got wedding on ze brain.  I usually have so much trouble coming up with titles for my post but as soon as I put on this outfit, I was immediately inspired.  The only thing this look is missing is the Something Borrowed but that’s only because John took these photos and not Catherine.  If it had been Cath, I would definitely have added something from her closet / jewelry collection / lip color choices to round out the look.

Stanton Top



*I feel like I start a lot of posts like this but…*
One of my favorite things about being a blogger is getting to work with brands that otherwise would not be on our day to day radar. (No offense to H&M, Zara, Forever 21 & Free People because we love those brands, of course). From local jewelry designers to companies trying to make a splash with one simple piece to amazingly crafted wears from designers abroad, we’ve been exposed to some seriously talented folks and I love getting to write about it on here.

Midsummer Dreaming into Fall

View More:

This jumpsuit is named adequately “Midsummer’s Dream” and I sure do feel like I’m a little fairy flitting thru the woods when I’m wearing it. Literally, it makes me want to prance around.  However, we have said goodbye to the dog days of summer and are making our way well into fall here in #RVA.  This morning I woke up and it was so chilly, I almost had to put on a jacket. As cliche as it is to say, how is it seriously almost mid-October?!  Continue reading “Midsummer Dreaming into Fall”

Zero Degrees Celsius

*As seen on The Crystal Pressdowntown1I am so so very ready for it to truly be Spring in Virginia! Coming off our Guatemala trip I was ready for the heat.   Much to my dismay, this weekend was made up of 50 degree temps with the sun making the occasional appearance.   I have to admit I was disappointed, but not entirely so. I love any opportunity to wear a comfy sweater and Catherine can attest to the fact that I am always trying to make them fashionable, but rarely find success in doing so. Needless to say, when we were picking out our Sunday threads to head to our friend’s studio opening, I was finally able to make this old Theory sweater happen!

I could go on for days about the comfort of this outfit but I should tell you about this awesome skirt. Zero Degrees Celsius is a newly launched brand focused on traditional femininity with a distinguished flare and we are excited to help promote their launch!
