If you’re like me, you like shopping for the cutest and trendiest school supplies whether it be decorations for your dorm or pens to take notes with.  One of my favorite things to get for the upcoming school year is a planner to keep my schedule neat and organized. There are a few brands that offer super cute planners that you can buy to get prepped for the school year like me!

They offer different colored planners so you can find one to match the rest of your school supplies!

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!

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

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!

Which trend from this year’s Met Gala is your favorite?  Tell me in the comment section below!

Overalls are a trend that have been considered “out” for a long time!  But recently, they’ve made a huge comeback anywhere from Forever21 to Express to Nordstrom.  You may be picturing the typical long, jean overalls but there are actually many different styles and colors that are much more popular! 

Chelsea Crockett - OverallsFirst, you’ll need to decide if you want long or short overalls.  There’s also the option of getting overalls with a skirt if you want to get a nicer pair!  Some pairs will have the typical pockets on the front and back of the overalls but others, like the one on the left, will have a sleeker look without pockets that you can dress up.

After you decide the style you want, you’ll have to pick a color.  I’m sure there are all different colors to choose from, but some colors I’ve seen a lot more than others.  Jean is obviously the most popular and the color you’ll see most in stores!  It matches with everything and can be a casual look for a day out with friends!  As for other colors, other popular ones include black, white, light pink, or army green.  Get one of these colors to mix it up!

Are you going to get a pair?  Let me know below which style is your favorite!

Eye makeup is one of my favorite things to experiment with.  You can do so many different color combinations and looks!  Looking back at my old videos and pictures, I’ve definitely gotten better at knowing how to do my eye makeup the best way to compliment the rest of my makeup.  Here are some eye makeup do’s and don’ts that I wish I would’ve known when I first started wearing makeup!

  • DO blend your eye shadow. Chelsea Crockett - Eye Makeup This will make it look much more natural and a lot less choppy.  If you get the right brush, blending is super easy!
  • DON’T add too much highlighter to your face.  This is important especially if your eye makeup is dark.  You want to make sure your makeup is all balanced out! 
  • DO copy a look that you like.  If you see a celeb’s makeup that you love, it’s much easier to create a look on yourself when you have something to go off of.
  • DON’T go crazy on the eyeliner.  There are so many other ways to make your eyes pop.  You don’t have to rely heavily on your eyeliner to do so!  The occasional cat-eye is always good, but find other ways that accent and darken your eyes.
  • DO find the colors that compliment you.  If you’re blonde haired and blue eyed, it might not be the best idea to go with dark colors like black and grey.  Use soft browns and natural colors to make your eyes pop but not be too overboard!

I hope these help you master your eye makeup skills!

Xoxo – 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! 🙂

Born in the land down under, Quay Australia has been manufacturing sunglasses since 2004. They started roadside on the festival circuit only to windup selling their line of sunglasses internationally in 2009. Their brand has spread throughout the world and all of social media. Even celebs have been spotted rocking their shades!

Quay Australia is not like other brands of sunglasses. They offer tons of unique styles that aren’t like the classic looks such as aviators or wayfarers (although they do offer those as well!). Chelsea Crockett - Quay SunglassesA handful of celebrities have been seen wearing them including Shay Mitchell, Gigi Hadid, and Cara Delevingne! The shades and even the rims themselves come in different colors and patterns.

One of the most popular styles is called “my girl.” Even in this single style they offer four different color combos! The girl on the left is wearing them in the black/pink combo. They also have black/blue, clear/silver, and brown with speckled rims.

Another popular style is called “muse.” If you like simple and the aviator look, then you’ll love these! They also come in four different color combos as well. If you like more of a unique look, Quay offers tons of these too! Most pairs are around $60 which isn’t a bad deal when you compare their prices to other brands.

Especially since summer is in full swing, I urge you to buy a pair for days in the sun! 🙂

Love, Chels

Thanks to festivals and bohemian style, tie-dye is the coolest new print to add to your summer wardrobe!  It’s so easy to wear and can be dressed up or down depending on how you wear it! It’s important to wear tie-dye the right way, or it can be over-powering!  Check out my guide to the perfect tie-dye ensemble!Chelsea Crockett- tie dye shorts

When wearing tie-dye, keeping it subtle is key.  Try going for tie-dye that only involves two colors (for example: navy/white, orange/pink, grey/black).  More than 2 colors can be a bit overbearing!  A tie-dye sun dress paired with an indie-inspired hat and sandals is the perfect boho look!  I also love the flowy shorts and skirts, which have TOTALLY come back into style, with a solid v-neck or tank!

If you just want to use tie-dye as an accessory rather that an outfit item, try a thick head band!  Wear the headband with your hair in a messy, relaxed bun, or down and wavy for a fun touch!  This look can be paired with any casual outfit!

Comment your favorite colors of tie-dye and how you rock the fun print below!

XOXO,

Chelsea

Every color is important in a wardrobe, but the colors of the season are the real eye-catchers!  Each season has its own special colors that show up on the runway and end up in every store!  Here are the colors of the summer and how you can incorporate them in your wardrobe!Chelsea Crockett- sea form green bikini

It’s all about the ocean!  Called the “Aquamarine” trend on the runways, sea foam green and aqua blue are two of the brightest colors to hit stores this summer.  Try a fun sea foam green bikini or aqua blue maxi with gold accessories.  Also, ditch the tight dresses and opt for a flowy, princess-like dress.  Another one of my favorite color trends is classic navy blue.  Navy, denim blue isn’t just for your jeans anymore!  Try a navy blouse with dark shorts or maxi skirt for an all over classic look.  Surprisingly enough, navy can actually make you look tanner!  You can even try pairing it with nude or tan (another 2015 summer color).

With the Boho trend still on the rise, reddish brown has made a big comeback!  Try wearing it with an oversized tee, denim shorts, and leather booties.  It also looks great with a boho style dress or crochet top.  There are so many possibilities with these wonderful summer colors.  Comment below which one of these colors you’ll be rocking this summer!

XOXO,

Have you ever gone to get your nails done and didn’t know which color to get on your toes and which color to pair with it on your fingers? I know we’ve all been through this struggle! I thought I’d help you out and provide you all with a little guide to pairing polishes. It’s actually quite simple!

Chelsea Crockett - Pairing PolishesI suggest starting off with picking one color to go on either your toes or your fingers. Don’t only look for colors that are easy to pair at first. Get one you really want and then figure out how to match with it! If you like different reds, try gold to go with it. Instead of painting your toes one color and your fingers the other, try even painting your ring finger gold and the rest red! It’s a fun look and not hard at all to pull off :).

One of my favorite polish pairs that works for summer, or even upcoming fall, is coral and purple! The colors are so, so cute together and create a fun look between the two. If you’re having trouble figuring out which colors look good together, try throwing in nude with a pink or orange. Nude or white are good substitutes for a hard-to-pair color. On the right, I found a chart on Pinterest that provides a little more help on which colors look best together!

Good luck! – Chelsea

           One of my favorite spring trends is pastel colors.  They’re classy, elegant, and timeless! Chelsea Crockett - Pretty Pastels

            Pastel dresses are perfect for almost any occasion.  A picnic in the park, a first date, or church on Sunday morning are all opportunities to rock your favorite spring dress.  Light pink, baby blue, or even a mint green look great with some white sandals and a bright handbag!

When you clean out your closet for the incoming seasons, don’t think too fast about tossing out your sweaters.  You can find super cute crop sweaters in different patterned or solid pastels at almost any store.  Putting together a crop sweater and a skirt or shorts is the perfect combination!

Besides sweaters and dresses, pastel handbags are stylish and just as elegant!  Although they’re a lighter shade, they can still add a pop of color to a neutral outfit.  Don’t be afraid to put a pastel shade on your nails as well!

Say good bye to winter and hello to spring!

          Hi girls!  One of the most attention-catching parts of your face is your beautiful eyes.  From blue to brown to hazel, your eyes can always sparkle if you know the right colors and shades to use. 

          For the baby blues out there, use navy or grey shades of eyeliner to highlight your eyes.  Those colors allow your eyes to reflect off the eyeliner and show off the blue hue in your eyes.  As far as brown eyes go, try out dark brown or black eyeliner which will bring a fiercer feel to them.  Try to remember to outline the eyes but not to go to thick and dark with black eyeliner.  And of course I couldn’t forget about the green/hazel eyes.  For you, try light brown or green colored eyeliner.  This will bring out the brown or green in your sparkling hazel eyes.Chelsea Crockett - Eyes

          To add an even more defined look, curl your lashes with an eyelash curler.  This will give them a little extra lift before adding on your favorite mascara.  Concealer is another product to use slightly below your eyes.  Getting rid of those dark circles will help others focus on your eye color and pop!  Hope this helps!

            Hello insiders!  One of the season’s hottest trends that I absolutely love is cutout dresses.  They’re super fashionable and can be found at almost any of my favorite stores.  One of the cool things about them is that you can find different cutout shapes such as a hearts or triangles, whatever you prefer! 

             Chelsea Crockett - Heart Cutout DressA great online store for cutout dresses is Sabo Skirt.  They have a ton of different designs, patterns, and colors!  My favorite is the “Heart Back Dress” which comes in white, black, blue, and pink!  Even though the dress is only one color, you can add a pop of neon with your shoes or handbag.

            Another place to find the best dresses is, of course, Forever 21.  Forever 21 has chic choices of the prettiest dresses at a great price.  All dresses range from only around $20 to $30 which is a great deal for how good the qualities of the dresses are!

             Although the selection is a little smaller, Love Culture and Charlotte Russe also carry cute, simple cutout dresses that are just as fashionable.  Just like Forever 21, their prices are just as good and the quality is great as well.

            Windsor clothing store also offers cutout dresses with a more formal look.  So if you want to wear a cutout dress for a fall dance, Windsor offers timeless but trendy looks.  You can pair it with ballet flats or heels depending on your event!
