I like to stay up-to-date with the latest trends so I know what’re the next most fashionable and stylish things I should have in my closet!  This upcoming winter, there are a few different trends that I think stand out among the rest, and are so, so cute!  Here are a few trends you’ll need to take note of for the next few months! 🙂

  • Double Denim. Chelsea Crockett - Denim on Denim Denim is one of my favorite things to rock, whether it be a denim jacket, boyfriend jeans, a denim dress, etc.  It’s a timeless trend that has been around for decades, and now you can rock denim times two!  🙂
  • Knit.  When I think of knit, I think of bundling up in a knit sweater during the cold months!  This winter, knit sweaters, ponchos, cardigans, etc. are going to be the perfect way to keep warm and stay fashionable.
  • Business Casual.  Certain styles and trends allow you to loosen up and dress down which I love, but this winter, business casual looks are coming back into play!  Things like blazers, collared shirts, and toned down colors are making their statement this year.
  • Sportswear.  I love trends that allow me to dress comfy and casual, but still look just as stylish.  Sportswear, or street style, has been in the fashion world for a while, and it’s not going away anytime soon!  Pull out your leggings, sneakers, and a graphic tee, and you’re good to go!

Which trend is your favorite?  Have you heard of any other upcoming winter trends?  Share them with me below! 🙂

I know for a fact that jeans will never go out of style.  They’re timeless and can be worn for almost any occasion.  The best part about jeans is that you can match them with pretty much anything!  There are three trendy jean styles that are making their way into the fashion world this fall that you should try rocking yourself!

  • Tasseled Ends.  Chelsea Crockett - Embroidered JeansI saw a pair of these when I was out shopping and I fell in love!  They usually cut off at the capri length and finish off with tasseled threads.  They’re so cute and perfect for a casual day out with friends!
  • Mom Jeans.  The 90s are back in action ladies!  Mom jeans are usually high waisted and can be rolled at the bottom to complete the look.  You can pair these with a retro top to really rock the 90s style!
  • Slit Hems.  If you want a pair of simple jeans that have a little twist to them, buy a pair of these!  They look like normal jeans until about halfway down your calf where the hems on the side split.  They’re super cute and allow you to switch it up!  (Look at the above picture for example!)
  • Embroidered Denim.  I love embroidered shirts and pants.  They’re both vintage and fashionable.  You can find jeans with embroidered flowers and other designs at certain boutiques or online!

Which look is your favorite?  Let me know below!  I think mine are the tasseled ends, how fun are those?!

One of the biggest trends towards the end of the summer was big, statement earrings.  And several fashion websites and magazines predict that this trend will carry on into the fall!  There are a few styles that stick out and are making a statement in the fashion world! 🙂

  • Hoop Earrings.Chelsea Crockett - Tassel Earrings  You may think hoop earrings are stuck in the 90s, but they’ve actually made a huge comeback!  Big gold or silver hoops are totally back in style and can be dressed up or dressed down with the right outfit.
  • Tassel Earrings.  Like the earrings on the right, tassel earrings are so cute and fun to wear!  You can find all different colors and styles to fit your personality.  If you like bright colors, go for a hot pink!  If you’re more on the mellow side, go for a neutral color like white, black, or grey to tone it down.
  • Pom Pom Earrings.  If you’ve ever seen these, then you know they really are statement earrings!  They definitely add some pop to your outfit.  You can get them with one pom pom or three pom poms to make them dangle earrings, too!

Which style is your favorite?  Let me know in the comment section below! 🙂

With summer in full swing, we can all expect a new wave of trends coming in!  Whether those be shoe trends, shirt trends, makeup trends, etc., you’ll have to get up-to-date with what trends will be “in” this season.  Here are a few makeup trends to look out for in summer 2017 so you can have the trendiest look in town!

  • Sunset eyes.  Soft reds, oranges, and yellows make for the perfect sunset eyeshadow look! Chelsea Crockett - Sunset Eyeshadow There are tons of different tutorials and ways to achieve this look.  You can go above and beyond or do a simple blended look!
  • Clean/no makeup look.  You can never go wrong with the natural look, especially this summer!  Light blush, thin eyeliner, nude lips, etc. are all something to try out this season.
  • Blue.  Too much blue can sometimes be too over-the-top, but it’s “in” this summer.  Light blue eyeshadow or even blue lips can make your makeup pop!
  • Soft colors/pastels.  I’ve always been a fan of pastels, and this summer they’re going to be super popular.  This could include pastel cheeks, lips, eyes, anything!
  • White accents.  White accented eyes are the perfect way to make your eyes pop.  Adding lighter shades around the inner corners of your eyes and your waterline will make your eyes appear bigger and brighter.

Which trendy makeup look are you going to try out this summer?  Let me know in the comment section below!  I’m hoping to try them all out myself! 🙂

Shoes are my secret obsession.  I love, love, love getting a new pair of sandals or sneakers and rocking them with the perfect outfit to go along with them!  There are a few styles that are going to be extremely “in” this summer.  Here are a few so you can get a head start on your summer shoe wardrobe!

  • Ankle-wrap sandals. Chelsea Crockett - Wrap Heels I love this trend!  You can get a pair that wrap around once or several times.  It can be subtle like the picture on the right or thick ribbon that starts to wrap up your leg.  They’re all so cute and stylish!
  • Patterned heels and wedges.  I’m a pattern type of girl so bright, fun patterned shoes are my favorite.  Especially just a simple pattern that will make your outfit pop is better than nothing at all! 🙂
  • Off-white.  Although white is a timeless color that’ll never go out of style, buy an off-white pair of sandals or wedges for this summer.  Neutral colors are always good to have on hand!
  • Platform heels.  Platform heels can be tricky to walk in at times but they’re so cute!  Purchase a pair to add to your shoe wardrobe to spice up your outfits this summer!
  • Shoes with some shine.  This can be anywhere from a metallic pair of sneakers or some shiny gold heels.  These will guarantee to give your overall outfit a little pop!

The Met Gala just happened and it was one of the best years yet, filled with lots of celebrities, stylish attires, and new trends!  I’m sure you saw some of the most popular looks from the red carpet, but there were plenty that went unnoticed, as well.  Here are a few overall trends from the event!

  • Red, red, and more red! Chelsea Crockett - Met Gala Red Dress Red has always been one of my favorite colors to wear when I have a big event to go to.  It’s a color that draws attention and looks great in photos! 🙂
  • Open backs.  Remember when cutouts were a big thing?  Well at the Met Gala this year, there were lots of jumpsuits and dresses with open or low backs!
  • Silver accessories.  Silver is my favorite type of jewelry to wear at the moment and apparently it was for the celebrities on the red carpet, as well!  It’s easy to match with any colors and shades, so owning a lot of silver is never a bad thing!
  • Fringe.  Fringed clothing and shoes can either be really cute or over-the-top, but all of the different fringe looks from the Met Gala were super stylish and definitely stood out!

3 Unique Ways to Spend Mother’s Day

I feel like Mother’s Day is one of those holidays that always sneaks up on me so fast!  Coming up with the perfect gift and day to plan out isn’t easy, but I always get it done in time to surprise my mom with a great day.  I wanted to think out of the box this year, so I came up with a few unique ways to spend Mother’s Day!

  • Buy supplies at the store and plant some flowers together!Chelsea Crockett - DIY Flower Pots  You can even buy pots to decorate with paints, stencils, and other things to customize them.  You and your mom can go to the store together and pick out which seeds you want to plant, too.  Make sure you remember to give it lots of water and sunlight!
  • Take a “staycation.”  This is when you go to a nearby big city (or the city you live in if you’re not close to a bigger one) and create a whole day filled with plans that you and your mom can do together!  This could be anything from going to eat somewhere you’ve always wanted to and exploring different spots around town.  Living near St. Louis, it’s always fun to plan a relaxing day around the city!
  • Now this idea is a little outside the box but perfect for a bigger group of people.  Something called Escape the Room is so, so fun for a group of about 10 or so people.  Grab your mom, aunt, grandma, etc. and work together to make it out in time!  They’re getting more and more popular so look for one in your city! 

What are you doing this year for Mother’s Day?  Let me know below!

Mother’s Day is the perfect day to show your mom how much she truly means to you.  Although we should thank her for all she does for us every day, Mother’s Day is a great excuse to go above and beyond and get her something special!  LUSH Cosmetics has the ideal Mother’s Day gift collection that you can choose from!

  • A Yellow or Pink “MOM” Bath Bomb ($7.95). Chelsea Crockett - LUSH Bath Bomb This is my favorite product from the Mother’s Day collection.  It’s the most appropriate for the occasion! 🙂 And your mom will love a fizzling bath bomb!
  • “Your Mother Should Know” Bubble Bar ($12.95).  Instead of a bath bomb, this bubble bar creates a bath full of grapefruit and rosewood scented bubbles!  And unlike a bath bomb, you can get a few uses out of it if you use it wisely. 
  • “Ups-A-Daisy” Bath Bomb ($7.95).  This bath bomb is in the shape of a flower and creates bright, technicolor swirls throughout your bath.  It has scents of orange and rosewood to give you a relaxing, spring aroma.
  • “Yummy Mummy” Shower Cream ($9.95-$29.95).  Depending on the size of the bottle, this shower cream can range anywhere between about $10 to $30.  It leaves your skin feeling smooth and smelling sweet!
  • “Happy Mother’s Day” Gift Basket ($87.95).  If you want to go above and beyond, you can purchase a full gift basket filled with a variety of different Mother’s Day products.  It may be pricey, but you definitely get your money’s worth!

What are you going to put in your mom’s basket this year?  Share with me below and I might do the same! 🙂

Do’s and Don’ts of Coachella

Coachella: one of the world’s largest music festivals in the history of EVER!  I was lucky enough to get to go and experience it myself last year and lemme tell ya… it was incredible!  Since I was a first-timer, I learned some things that I would and wouldn’t do again.  Here are a few Coachella do’s and don’ts!

DO’S

  • Do drink plenty of water!  Since you’ll be in the middle of a 100-degree weather desert, you’re going to get very hot, very fast.  Staying hydrated will keep you refreshed and happy!
  • Do keep your phone plenty charged.  If you ever do get separated from your friends, you’ll need to be able to find them!  You’ll also be taking plenty of pics and videos… I mean, it is Coachella! 
  • Do stay well rested and well fed.  You’ll enjoy Coachella 10x more if you have a full stomach and plenty of sleep! 

DON’TS

  • Don’t get lost from your friends. Chelsea Crockett - Coachella Outfit In a festival filled with thousands and thousands of people, it’s easy to get separated from your group.  That being said, it can be extremely hard to find them again, especially if your phone service isn’t the greatest.  Stay close to them or have a buddy system!
  • Don’t dress uncomfortably.  Now I know Coachella is known for the stylish festival outfits, but you can be both cute and comfy such as the picture on the right!  You’ll be outside in the sun and walking around all day so dress accordingly (especially with the right shoes!).
  • Don’t last-minute plan.  It’s one of the biggest, and not to mention most crowded, festivals of the year… PLAN AHEAD!

Coachella will be one of the best experiences of your life, hands down!  Have fun and take these do’s and don’ts into consideration!

XOXO – Chelsea

Easter is one of my favorite holidays.  I get to see all of my family, eat a delicious homemade meal, and celebrate Jesus’s resurrection!  Every year, I pick out a dress to wear to church and family get-togethers on Easter Sunday.Chelsea Crockett - Overalls  If you’re wondering what to wear, here’s a little guide on what’s “in” and what’s “out” this year!

Casual: If you’re going for a more casual look, then you have lots of options to choose from!  One look I’ve really been into lately is short overalls with a tee underneath.  Some overalls have a skirt instead of shorts which is a little dressier for the occasion!  Dress it up with jewelry and a casual pair of wedges or sandals.  You can also go with a casual patterned romper or a cute shirt and white pants.

Dressy:  If you’re planning on dressing up for Easter, which is what I normally do, sometimes less is more!  A simple pastel or white sundress can be dressed up with heels or wedges, accessories, and maybe a cute hat!  Focus on finding a dress that’s a pretty spring color such as light pink, white, or pastel purple!  You could even try out a fancy romper or a patterned two-piece set. 

What are you thinking about wearing for Easter Sunday?  Let me know below!  Maybe I’ll get some ideas for myself. 🙂

Happy Easter! – Chelsea

The 2017 iHeartRadio Music Awards were just the other day and you know what that means: a red carpet full of all the hottest trends and styles of the season!  Celebrities such as Katy Perry, Demi Lovato, and the members of Fifth Harmony all rocked the red carpet this year.  Here are a few noticeable trends that are some of the hottest looks this season!

  • Metallic.  Metallic is a trend that comes and goes in waves.  Chelsea Crockett - Demi LovatoWell the wave is in, and metallic is back in full swing!  The picture on the right shows singer Demi Lovato rocking a metallic dress, jacket, and shoes on the red carpet. 
  • Jumpsuits.  Jumpsuits are super comfy and can be dressed up depending on the style of them.  Most of the jumpsuits on the red carpet were dressed up for the event, but you can find one that’s much more casual but just as stylish!
  • Neutral colors.  There wasn’t a lot of color to be seen on the carpet this year.  There were some pastels or dark tones here and there, but black, white, and other neutral colors made up the majority of the celebs’ looks!
  • Anything but dresses.  Wait, what?  I thought award shows called for the prettiest gowns and dresses?  Usually that’s the case, but this year most celebs rocked jumpsuits, rompers, or pants and a stylish shirt.

Which trend is your favorite?  Let me know below! 🙂

St. Patrick’s Day is only a couple weeks away, and I don’t know about you but I think it’s such a fun holiday to celebrate!  This year, I’ve looked up different festive recipes and so many of them make the use of Lucky Charms.  They’re so creative and yummy!  Here are a few Lucky Charms snacks and treats that make celebrating St. Patty’s Day ten times better.

  • Lucky Charms Dirt Cake.  Chelsea Crockett - Lucky Charms CupcakeIf you’ve had dirt cake, then you know just how good it is.  All you need to make is vanilla pudding and add food coloring to make it green.  Then, in a large glass bowl, fill in a layer of pudding, whip cream, then lucky charms… and repeat! It looks and tastes great!
  • Lucky Charms Cupcakes.  This recipe is extremely simple!  Just make a fresh batch of cupcakes, ice them, and finish them off with some Lucky Charms like the picture on the right!  You can make different designs out of all the different marshmallows!
  • Green Lucky Charms Pancakes.  When I was little, my mom would always make me a full green breakfast for St. Patrick’s Day.  If you want green pancakes, put food coloring in the batter.  Add some whip cream to the top followed by a sprinkle of Lucky Charms!  They’re perfect for the occasion! 🙂

Which one are you going to try out for yourself?  Feel free to let me know in the comments below! 🙂

Spring break is often the time for college kids to go on a trip with their friends or get some time away from school to relax and spend time with family.  If you’re staying home or at school for spring break, you don’t have to miss out on all the fun!  Here are five ideas for a spring break “staycation!”

  • Take a day to binge watch that Netflix series you’ve been wanting to watch.  Chelsea Crockett - Gossip GirlClear your schedule for the day, make some snacks, lay in bed, and simply relax!
  • Take a day trip to a good hiking spot or a big city.  This is an inexpensive way to get a mini vacation in your break without having to go very far!  Most of the time you can discover hidden spots that make for the best adventures.
  • Set apart a day on the weekend where you and the rest of your family are free.  Then, plan out a whole day to spend time with each other and do fun things around your city!
  • Since you’re saving money by not going on any spring break festivities, treat yourself to a shopping spree!  I don’t mean you have to drain your bank account, but you can treat yourself by splurging a little at the mall.
  • Catch up with your high school friends.  If you live away at college, you might not get the chance to see old friends as much.  Send out a group text and plan a fun day for the crew!   

What other ideas do you have to add to the list?  Let me know in the comment section below! 🙂

New year, new organization habits! I have found that being more organized helps me manage my stress and makes me feel more in control of my life. Here are a few easy ways to have a more organized (and less stressed!) 2017.
