Olive green is one of those colors that looks good on everyone. It is also one of fall’s favorite hues! Olive green pairs well with many colors, and is a more exciting neutral than tan or brown. Here are my favorite ways to mix and match olive green into my autumn outfits.

  1. Layered with a vest: This is the most subtle way to wear olive green. You can layer an olive vest over a patterned button-up for a classic fall look. You can take it off if you get too warm, which is what happens most of the time where I live. Fall mornings are chilly, but the afternoons get warm. A vest gives your outfit a casual yet preppy feel.
  2. Cozy in a cardigan: I love a long cardigan. My favorite are the ones that are long enough to hit at your knees. They are slimming and make me look taller! Pair a long olive cardigan with a light-colored sweater and brown boots for a neutral, understated yet stylish look.
  3. Time for a turtle neck: In the last few years turtle necks have really made a comeback. Not only do they keep you cozy and warm, they are also stylish! Pair an olive green turtle neck sweater with a black leather jacket and ripped black skinny jeans for an edgy, fun fall look.

Happy fall, y’all!

XOXO, Chels

Fall Trends 2017: Over-the-Knee Boots

If you’ve been keeping up with the latest trends, then I’m sure you’ve seen the recent boom of over-the-knee boots. They’re super stylish and can be mixed and matched with so many different outfits! I wanted to give you a little insight about where you can find a pair and what different looks you can create with them!

First, let’s talk about where you can buy a pair.  Chelsea Crockett - Over the Knee BootsSince they’ve gotten so popular, you can actually find them at more stores than you think! Charlotte Russe sells a pair for only $26.99! If you’re willing to splurge a little more on your pair, check out DSW. They sell so many different boots from several different designers. If you don’t have a DSW near you, you can check online to find a pair!

Now, let’s talk about a few different outfits you can put together!  One of my favorite looks for the season is a sweater dress.  If you pair a comfy sweater dress with your knee-high boots, it’ll create the perfect casual fall outfit like the picture on the right! Another look is pairing your boots with a pair of light jeans and a comfy sweater/top! You could even rock a long cardigan with it as well. There are so many more looks that go great with knee-highs!

Do you like this new style of boot? Give me your opinion on them in the comment section below!

S’mores are fall’s favorite treat. Not only do you get to cozy up to a fire while you make them, but they are so ooey and gooey and delicious. Not all of us have access to a bonfire whenever we feel the urge to enjoy a s’more, so that is where s’mores bark comes in. You can make this inside and enjoy it from the comfort of your kitchen! Plus, it is easily share-able.

Ingredients:

  • 3 ½ cups milk chocolate chips
  • ½ cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup marshmallow fluff
  • 3 sheets of graham crackers

Melt 1 ½ cups of chocolate chips and spread it over a pan covered in wax paper. Make sure the chocolate is layered thick. Refrigerate this for about an hour. Meanwhile, melt the white chocolate chips in the microwave. Then add in the marshmallow fluff and microwave it for about 30 seconds. Quickly spread the marshmallow and white chocolate layer over the hardened first chocolate layer. Crumble the graham crackers and press them into the marshmallow/chocolate layer. Refrigerate for 30 minutes, meanwhile melting 2 cups of chocolate chips. Spread this over the graham cracker layer and put it in the fridge for 2 hours. Take it out and break it apart. Store it in the fridge if you want a solid bark, and if you want it squishy leave it out in a covered container.

Yum!

XOXO, Chels

Fall weather is finally here which means cooler temperatures and stylish fall outfits.  Between tailgates and fun fall dinner dates, there are lots of occasions to rock all types of trendy skirts!  Right now, I’m obsessed with these two skirt styles!Chelsea Crockett - Fall Skirt

The first style is a jean skirt with frayed hems.  This style is simple but has a twist to it!  You can pair it with a cute belt, blouse, and booties to create the perfect fall look.  You can also pair it with a long cardigan or a tied sweater.  With denim, really anything goes!

The other skirt is a velvet or corduroy button up the front skirt like the picture on the right. They come in all different fall colors like maroon, green, gold, dark purple, etc. Again, these are stylish to pair with a cute top and booties and is the perfect look for a football game day! You can dress them up by adding a jacket or a scarf, too.

Which style do you like better?  Let me know in the comment section below which skirt style you like to rock during the fall!

I love getting crafty for fall especially with tons of different seasonal DIYs! Although there’re so many to choose from, I want to share with you one that’s quick, easy, and perfect to decorate your room with!

When I was younger we used to carve a jack-o’-lantern faces on ourChelsea Crockett - Pumpkin DIY pumpkins, add a tea light, and set them out for trick-or-treaters to admire.  Now that I’m older, I discovered an even better way to carve my pumpkin.  I found this idea on Pinterest and it’s so cute!  First, you’ll have to pick out the perfect pumpkin!  Next, cut out the bottom of the pumpkin, and clean out all of the seeds and insides. Then, take a drill with different size bits and drill holes all around the pumpkin. You can make designs with horizontal or vertical lines or even spell out a word!

After you’ve completed drilling the holes in your pumpkin, add a tea light to the bottom of it and the light will shine right through! It’s fun to create a few different sized pumpkins and make the design different on each one (like the picture on the right). When they’re lit up next to each other, they look adorable!

Puppy chow is probably on my list of top 10 favorite foods. Not even kidding. I cannot stop myself when there is a bowl of it in front of me. It just magically disappears. Since fall is upon us and everything is now pumpkin flavored, what sounds better than pumpkin flavored puppy chow? Not much. Not much at all. Here is how to make pumpkin spice puppy chow!

Ingredients:

  • 7-8 cups Cinnamon Chex cereal
  • 12 ounces orange candy melts
  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 cups candy pumpkins

Pour the Chex cereal into a bowl and put to the side. Melt the candy melts for 20 seconds, stir, melt, and stir until they are melted. Stir 2 teaspoons of cinnamon, the cloves, allspice and nutmeg in to the candy melts until it is combined. Pour this mixture onto the cereal and stir gently to coat all of the squares. Be super gentle! Pour the powdered sugar and 1 tsp of cinnamon into a large Ziploc baggie. Pour in the coated squares and shake until they are all coated in sugar. Pour in the pumpkins and toss some more. Store it in an air tight container, or just eat them all right then and there! No judgments here.

Enjoy!

XOXO, Chels

Happy (almost) fall y’all! The weather where I live is starting to change and get cooler, and I love it. You can smell fall in the air! Pumpkin spiced everything is back, the leaves are starting to change, fall is just the best! Caramel apples are another deliciously wonderful thing about autumn. The only problem with them is that they are so messy and hard to eat. Here is an easy way to enjoy caramel apples in a bite-sized

way!

  • 2 very large Fuji apples
  • 3 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 cup caramels, melted
  • Chopped pecans

Stir until smooth, and drizzle the melted caramel over the apples and sprinkle with nuts. Refrigerate them for an hour, then enjoy!

 

This is perfect for when you have a sweet tooth but don’t want to make the commitment to a whole desert.

For most people cool weather = dry skin. Dry skin = bad news. Sugar scrubs are one of my favorite dry skin remedies because they smell heavenly and make my skin feel incredibly smooth. To celebrate the start of the cool-weather seasons, aka FALL YA’LL, here is a recipe for pumpkin vanilla sugar scrub! It layers vanilla scrub with vanilla-pumpkin scrub to create a “candy corn” look. What could be more festive than that?

Ingredients

  • Vanilla Sugar Scrub
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 1/4 cup coconut oil
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Vanilla- Pumpkin Sugar Scrub
    • 2 cups sugar
    • 1/2 cup coconut oil
    • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1/8 teaspoon ground clove
    • Optional: red and yellow liquid food coloring

Vanilla Sugar Scrub:

Heat the coconut oil on the stove until it is melted. Add in the vanilla extract and stir until fully combined. Add vanilla and coconut mixture to the sugar and stir.

Vanilla-Pumpkin Sugar Scrub:

Heat the coconut oil on the stove until it is melted. Add in the spices and vanilla, and stir until fully combined. Add the liquid to the sugar and stir it together. Right now the mixture will be a light brown color. Divide it into two bowls for coloring if you want it to look like candy corn!

  • To create the yellow layer
    • 4 drops of yellow food coloring
  • To create the orange layer
    • 4 drops of yellow and 3 drops of red for the red layer.
    • No worries, this amount of food coloring will not color your skin!

Scrub that dry skin away, and smell like a pumpkin pie while doing it. I call that a win-win. 😉

XOXO, Chels

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?!

Hair trends are like any other trend, they stay for a season or two then get replaced by even better ones!  This fall, there are a few upcoming looks that you just might have to try out for yourself!  Here are 5 hair trends you should know about for the upcoming season!

  • Caramel Brown.  Chelsea Crockett - Rose HairWinter is usually the time to go darker rather than lighter with your hair.  But if you don’t want to go too dark, go with a soft, caramel brown!  You can still switch up your look without going too out of your comfort zone.
  • Rose.  If you’re willing to get a little out of your comfort zone, try out a dusty rose color.  Pastel hair has become a trend in the past few years so why not hop on the bandwagon and try it out for yourself!
  • Red Accents/Highlights.  I’ve always been a little tempted to try this trend out for myself.  You can get a subtle red tint or go for a full head of vibrant, red highlights.  Whatever suits you best!
  • Bold Brown.  Instead of adding subtle brown highlights, be bold and go for a dark, chocolate brown.  Why not, right?!
  • Blonde Lowlights.  If you want something a little more natural, try blonde lowlights.  Although you can only get these if you’re already blonde, they give you that darker tint that’s perfect for the winter!

Be daring this fall and give one of these a try!  Hey, you can always dye it back right? 🙂

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! 🙂

Athleisure Style This Fall and Winter

Athleisure is an up-and-coming trend that I am loving, I have to admit. Athleisure is casual clothing like yoga pants, sweat pants, and pullovers that are designed to be worn for both exercising and pretty much everything else. So, they are athletic clothes that are stylish and functional, meaning you can wear them to the gym and then to the grocery store and look stylin’ while doing both. This trend is both comfy and trendy, so I am ready to hop on board. Here are 3 athleisure looks to try this fall and winter.

  1. Super casual: In this style we see workout leggings paired with a loose tank top layered under a simple pullover. The outfit is finished off with some slip-on sneakers. I like this look because it is effortless and really casual, but it is also comfy and can be worn out and about.0c6ead14e21331bfc652272ade7c4ab4
  2. Cute and comfy: This next look pairs workout leggings with some Hunter boots, and white long-sleeve tee layered under a cute thermal pullover and puffy vest. This style is really preppy and cute while also being comfy and practical.5939f30b8b4c520aa203b4e31589e4a5
  3. Trendy and effortless: This next look is the most complex, but is also my personal favorite. This look pairs some workout leggings with awesome textured patches on the knees, a white long-sleeve tee, and a green army jacket with an infinity scarf to top it off. The tennis shoes keep the outfit athletic while the army jacket takes it to a more “street-worthy” state.3eedbd2995cf26b1f16332744e2b1fc2

I love outfits that I can wear straight from the gym to run errands, or just to be comfy while I’m out and about! Athletic clothes can be dressed up in so many ways to make them more “outfit” ready. Who says comfy can’t also be cute?

XOXO, Chels
