I’ve always been confused by the concept of a summer sweater until this Bailey 44 white cage number came into my life. I can think of a million things I want to wear this sweater with and I am so thankful for Bahama Shop in Virginia Beach for allowing The Crystal Press to style looks with their amazing pieces! It was so fun getting to spend the day with them and play with all of their beautiful things!
If you make it to VB this summer, I highly suggest you pop into Bahama Shop which is just a couple of blocks from the ocean front to take a peek. What can be better than a trip to visit the ocean and a perfectly curated boutique moments away? Stay tuned for the next few looks on TCP to see what Bahama Shop is made of!
Beware: you can spend hours pining over all of the denim, flowy tops, & killer shoes at the shop. Plan your beach day accordingly.

Guys, I really loveeeeee clothes.
And I don’t mean in a cutesy, let’s-play-dress-up way.
I mean it in more of a I-have-a-problem-way.
In my measly attempt to put my “problem” to some sort of use, I am featuring my girl crushes (who can do some amazing things w my love, clothes) for this here Influence post.
Here is the lineup:
1. Brittany from thrifts and threads is based in Southern California and kills it in the #ootd department. She posts regularly (which is notable because I can’t seem to cultivate that habit) and makes everything she wears look effortless. She can transform a thrift store find into a runway look.
2. Carey from corks + caftans has been nominated for several awards for her blog she has been doing with her hubby since 2008ish, but the coolest was when she was recognized by Shopbop for her killer style. She is a RVA girl, so I am a bit partial, but the thing I love most about Carey is that not only is her style is amazing but she can write beautifully. You can check out her looks and intriguing thoughts on corks + caftans, follow her fan house renovation for home decor inspiration on Our Own Fan House, and find her on instagram-ing and ish here: @wodehizzle.
3. This last Influence picture this week is of Rachele from ZFB . Does this look knock your socks off or what? Her outfit featured here is self exclamatory as to why you should stalk (yes, I said it STALK) Rachele on ALL forms of social media: her blog, her twitter, and her instagram. I am very into the way Rachele puts things together.
P.S Don’t be shy in admitting to yourself and the rest of the universe that these ladies dress like mother trucking rock stars.
