            Hey insiders!

            As seasons change, so does our wardrobe.  This time of year, the weather gets cooler which causes us to pull out our scarves and sweaters.  Recently, I’ve seen many popular and stylish accessory trends spread throughout magazines, fashion websites, and even at schools worn by kids and teens.

           Chelsea Crockett - Fall Accessories Hats are accessories that can be rocked in any season, but there are a couple ones that are necessities to have during this time of year.  Beanies are casual, cute, and can be worn to all your fall events such as bonfires, football games, etc.  Whether they’re fitting to your head or hang off the back, you can style your beanie however you prefer!

            Since most schools don’t allow hats, teens have to find other fun ways to accessorize and show their individuality.  Scarves are the perfect way to do so.  With all their fun colors, patterns, and styles you can add some color to your outfit.  In case you don’t know, infinity scarves are definitely a popular trend.  Because they don’t have an end, you simply wrap them around your neck two to three times and you’re set!

            Lastly, it’s time to pull out your autumn handbags!  Colors such as browns, yellows, tans, and oranges look great on purses during this time of year.  Of course, you can change up your look with crossbody bags, hobo bags, or shoulder bags.    

            So as you see the colors of the leaves start to change, it’s time to show off these trends!

Guide to Fall Colors

             Hey girls!

            Just as trends come and go, so do colors, and knowing when to break them out is tough.  For example, wearing white shoes, pants, or handbags after Labor Day and before Memorial Day is a fashion “don’t.”  So, what colors pop during autumn?  Keep reading to find out!

            You probably guessed it, but what color is better to sport during fall than orange?  Wearing an orange shirt and pairing it with neutral colored shoes and a cute handbag is a perfect casual outfit for a day at the mall.  Not a fan of orange?  Try out red or yellow.  These shades are similar to orange aChelsea Crockett - Fall Outfit - Fall Colorsnd still give off an autumn feel. 

            Another color that’s a fall favorite is chocolate brown.  The perfect brown accessory is a purse.  This matches almost any outfit you want to throw on.  It complements orange, red, and yellow perfectly, yet doesn’t take the focus away from your bright autumn shades.

            As I’ve stated before, plaid is back!  Although it’s a pattern, not a color, plaid has made a comeback and looks great as an oversized button-up.  Rock this look with leggings and boots or flats.   

            If you’re one who follows the Labor Day rule, then you’ll need a white substitute.  Cream, ivory, nude, or even a light, rosy pink will do the job.  These colors can fill in for your white accessories you put away for fall.

                                                Hope this helped! – Chels

            Hello lovelies!

            One of my favorite things about autumn is the fun that comes with Halloween.  You can find pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns on almost every street.  Aside from being perfect decorations for the season, carving and decorating pumpkins is a fun activity no matter what age you are!  Whether you’re carving for fun or for a decorating competition, you’re going to need unique thoughts to make your pumpkin your own!

            A great idea I know girls wilChelsea Crockett - Glitter Pumpkinl love is to glitter-up your pumpkins.  Lay out a few pieces of newspaper and set out your pumpkin.  The best way to do this is to purchase a can of spray adhesive.  Spray your preferred deign on your pumpkin.  While it’s still wet, sprinkle whatever color glitter you want on the glue.  It should turn out girly, sparkly, and attention-catching!

            Chelsea Crockett - Fretwork PumpkinOne idea that’s not just for the ladies, is a fretwork patterned jack-o-lantern.  An example of this, is the picture on the left.  After scooping out the seeds and insides of the pumpkin, you will be ready to go. To begin this design, take a thick piece of tape and make a ring around your pumpkin.  You’ll need to have a drill with two different sized drill bits, one large and one small.  Then, drill rows of circles around the tape creating a design you think looks best!  When your design is complete, place a votive candle inside the pumpkin and light it. 

            Voila!  You have a polka dotted, glowing jack-o-lantern!

            I hope these ideas gave you a little originality this fall.  I can’t wait to see how yours all turned out!

BOO! Get festive with these adorable Halloween nail ideas! Below I have images and explanations on why I love each one!

1. Candy Corn Nails

Chelsea crockett Halloween nails

If you love candy corn as much as I do, then you will absolutely adore these nails. I love these nails because they remind me of candy corn, which is a must-have snack for fall! These nails will definitely get you in the fall spirit! And because they only feature three colors, in three straight lines, they are super easy to achieve! If your personality is girly or goofy, then these are for you!

2. Spider Web Nails

Chelsea Crockett halloween nails

These nails scream Halloween! What describes Halloween better than creepy crawly spiders? I like these nails because they are simple yet fun! You just need black and white nail polish and BAM, you are all set to create this look! In order to get the thin lines in the spider web part of the nail, dip a toothpick into the nail polish and use it to create the web. If you favor a darker kind of style, then this is the look for you!

3. Chic Halloween Nails

Chelsea crockett halloween nails

And now for my favorite of them all! I absolutely adore these nails because, to me, they are so classy. The Halloween orange with a dash of black and white chevron is fabulous! It is the perfect mix of cute and festive. If you favor a preppy or classy sort of style, then these nails are the ones for you!

Which of these nails are your favorite? Let me know in the comment section below!

Break Out Your Beanies for Fall!

            What’s up insiders?

            Beanie hats are not only good for keeping you warm, but also for making a look go from ordinary to trendy.  You may assume you just throw on one of these and you’re set, but first you should probably read up on your “Beanie 101”WinkChelsea Crockett - Beanies

            If you’re looking for a more edgy outfit, a black or grey beanie is the perfect accessory.  Although plain, solid-colored beanies will work, try finding one with a cool logo or emblem on the front.  This will look better when you pair your hat with skinny jeans and a leather jacket.  Also, throw on some combat boots and a concert tee.  This will give you the street look that’s a definite “in” in Hollywood right now.

            As for more of a sweet, girly look, find a light, pastel colored beanie.  These are a super cute accessory to pair with an oversized sweater and leggings.  Get out your boots and a cross-over purse to finish up a casual, yet stylish outfit. 

            Most of the time, I see most trend-setters rocking an over-sized beanie and slouching it towards the back of their head.  If you’d rather find a more fitting one to wear normally on the top of your head, that’s perfectly fine!  Don’t be afraid to make the style your own!  That’s what fashion’s all about, isn’t it?

                                                                XOXO,

Three words: Pumpkin. Spiced. Latte. If these three words are not the definition of fall then I don’t know what is! The only problem with constantly indulging in Starbucks Pumpkin Spiced Lattes is that they are a bit on the pricey side, and if you buy them often you will soon find that your wallet is totally and completely empty! I am here to help you save some of that cash! Here is a recipe for a DIY Pumpkin Spiced Latte:

-3/4 cup of milk

Chelsea Croclett

-2-3 tablespoons pumpkin spice syrup

-3/4 cup of coffee

– Whipped cream for topping (optional)

– Pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon for topping (optional)

Combine and enjoy! You can make this in the comfort of your home for super cheap! It is also crazy easy because it only has three ingredients. On the next chilly day, whip one of these up and enjoy! If you want to make a low-fat version of this drink, use skim milk in place of regular milk and skip the whipped cream.

XOXO, Chels

Hey insiders! 

            Since fall’s almost here, it’s time to break out your pants and pack up your shorts.  As autumn’s cool months roll in, you’ll be seeing everything from patterned leggings to colorful jeans.

            First, I want to talk all about jeans.  Not just denim, but solids, stripes, polka dots, and lots more.  Solid colored jeans are my favorite because they’re super cute, but still extremely casual.  You can wear these to school without being too “dressed up” but still catch other’s attention with your fashionable outfitWink.  Pair them with a matching scarf and you’re set!  Check them out here:http://tiny.cc/ColoredJeans!Chelsea Crockett - Patterned Jeans

            Another popular trend that I see repeat almost every fall, is patterned jeans.  I love, love, love fun patterns and colors so you can guess I own a pair or two of these!  A few hot patterns are floral, striped, plaid, and printed.  Some are extra creative and add studs or even lace!      

            Of course, I can’t forget leggings.  One of my favorite things about fall are big, over-sized sweaters.  Wearing a cute pair of leggings is a great idea to pair with those comfy sweaters.  Just like jeans, you can find solid colored or printed leggings!  They even have galaxy and cross printed ones!     

            Hope this gives you a little help to prepare for fall!

                                                            Love, Chels

Hey Insiders!

            So, I’ve been thinking about things I enjoy doing in the fall.  One thing that is always fun is Fright Fest at Six Flags.  It’s thrills by day and chills by night. When the sun goes down, it transforms into a Halloween playground!  It goes from Friday through Sunday on certain dates in September and October.  You can check the Six Flags website for more info.    

            Costumes are allowedChelsea Crockett - Fright Fest for children 12 and under.  They even have some trick or treating going on.  However, for teens and older, once the sun sets, ghouls and goblins come out to haunt the streets!  It’s always fun being chased by a ghost!  You can experience your favorite roller coaster in the dark as well.  They offer zombie paintball, a haunted house (Even though those aren’t real, I still freak out!) and a gruesome maze. 

            So Insiders, if its thrills and chills you are looking for this fall, Six Flags offers a haunting adventure.  Grab some friends, brave the streets, and find some creepy characters at the park!  It’ll be lots of fun and you just might start a fall tradition with your friends!

                                                   Happy Haunting!

                                                          XOXO, Chels

Hi Insiders,

            With school already here, fall is quickly approaching!  Trends are rapidly changing from season to season, and an awesome item for your closet this fall is a vest.  This versatile item can be dressed up and down, and not only make you look like a fashionista, but keep you warm as well.  Check out these chic outfit ideas for adding a vest to your wardrobe. 

           Chelsea Crockett- North Face Vest A vest can be considered sporty or sleek depending on what type of vest you buy.  Different styles of vests include puffy vests, fleece vests, and fashion vests.  Puffy and fleece vests are usually considered sporty and look great paired with leggings, a sweater, and boots!  This is a great look for a casual football game or a Friday night bonfire.  Another sporty way to rock a fleece or puffy vest is to wear it over a pullover.  It’s a very athletic look that is great for outdoor activities like hiking and biking.  A great place to purchase a fleece or puffy vest is an athletic store or outdoor store like The North Face or the Alpine Shop.  Both of these looks are casual enough for school and sporty enough for energetic outdoor fun!

            A fashion vest is usually a super sleek vest with fancy zippers, pockets, and details.  A great place to find a fashion vest is J. Crew.  If you have an outlet mall near you, you may have a J. Crew Factory where these vests can be purchased for much cheaper!  These vests look great with a plaid button up, jeans, and boots!  These vests can also be paired with jewelry, so don’t be afraid to add a fun necklace or a statement watch.  It’s a dressier way to wear a vest!  Adding a fun printed sweater and thick infinity scarf can give your fashion vest a Chelsea Crockett- fashion vestwhole new look!  I encourage you to add a vest to your fall wardrobe.  Let me know below how you rock your vest!  Have fun with it!

XOXO,

            Chelsea

            Hey girls!  I know it’s hard to believe, but fall is only weeks away!  This means it’s almost time to ditch the shorts and tanks for jeans and jackets.  The trends this season are some of my favorites and I want to share them all with you!

            As I’ve mentioned in another one of my articles, studs are super trendy and fun for this season!  Chelsea Crockett - Studded OutfitAnything such as shoes, pants, shirts, and accessories always look better with a little shine!  People have gotten really creative and even tried studs on their nails and phone cases!

            Prints such as cheetah and snakeskin are yet another thing you’ll see throughout almost any fashion magazine.  Even patterns such as spots or stripes are hot in Hollywood.

           Chelsea Crockett - Two Toned Pants Like denim’s not enough, coated denim is a stylish and chic trend.  For those of you that are unsure of what coated denim is, it’s a pair of denim pants that almost have a light shimmer overcoat.  I love these pants because they can be dressed up and can add a little bit of shine to your outfit!   

            And lastly, two toned clothing is super stylish and highly fashionable.  These pants are extremely cute because you can make them your own by adding fun shoes and accessories!

            I hope you all are rocking these trends this upcoming fall!
