Pandora is my go-to store for all things jewelry. Not only is their selection amazing, but their prices are affordable and reasonable. In my opinion, rings are totally underrated. Necklaces and bracelets seem to be the main focus of accessory talk. To switch things up, I thought I’d highlight the different styles and colors of Pandora rings you can check out for yourself!

Most of their rings that are on the affordable Chelsea Crockett - Pandora Ringsside are only about $45-$90! They make for a perfect gift… or a nice treat for yourself :). You can pick from gold, two tone, silver, white gold, or Pandora rose metal. You can also choose from several different colors of stones from blue to pink or red to green. The rings on the left are examples of the Pandora rose metal with a heart stone or the love ring! How cute are those? Especially with Valentine’s Day right around the corner, they’re the perfect gift to put in your crush’s head! They have simple rings without a stone or rings with lots of bling. You pick! Some of the rings you can even layer for a more complex look. The possibilities are endless.

Let me know which one is your favorite? Maybe you like a lot of bling or none at all. Pandora has such a big variety! Can you say obsessed?

Athletic wear makes up a big part of my wardrobe. Whether I’m actually working out or just lounging around, I love how casual and easy it is to throw on. Athletic streetwear is a growing trend that is not only comfortable but stylish too! What more could a girl want? If you’re a little confused on what I mean, keep on reading :)!

If you have a Tumblr, I’m sure you’ve scrolled passed a pair of vintage white Adidas shoes once or twice.Chelsea Crockett - Adidas Jacket They’re so popular that they’re hard to even find in stores or online. Obviously you have to like the look to rock them because they’re definitely unique! Another Adidas retro piece is their vintage jacket like the one on the right. You can find them in black and white or sometimes even in light pink! So cute!

Sweatshirt dresses, oversized jersey tees, and joggers are all different streetwear pieces you can pair with accessories and the right shoes. You can dress them up or dress them down. One way you can accessorize is with hats. I’ve always been a hat fan and now I can benefit from it by pairing them with causal streetwear. There’s tons of different outfits you can come up with. Search on Tumblr and Pinterest for some inspiration! They won’t disappoint :).

Do you like this style? Let me know below!

Fashion is all about showing off your own style and being confident in it. With monogram fashion, you can take it a step further and personalize your outfit with your initials! I love all of the different things you can get monogrammed and customized. It’s not only inexpensive but a way to customize almost any article of clothing!

First off, let’s start with accessories. You have to have seen at least one monogrammed hat at least once before. They’re so cute and can be made in whatever color you want! Another big trend is monogrammed necklaces. They’re simple, classy, and come in either silver or gold. You can even buy monogrammed phone cases, earrings, and bumper stickers!

Next comes the endless variety of monogram clothing.  Chelsea Crockett - Monogram Rain PulloverWith cold weather approaching, you can order a half-zip fleece pullover, an over-sized long-sleeved t-shirt, or a puffy vest with your initials engraved on it! (If you want the full cold weather proof outfit, get a monogrammed infinity scarf or rain boots!) My favorite piece of clothing that I’ve seen all over Pinterest is a monogrammed rain jacket like the one on the left. You can get a half-zip or a full-zip, whatever you prefer.

There are many different sites that you can now order your personalized items on, but my favorite is Etsy. Their site is reliable and not too expensive, too. Check it out!

How to Wear Over-The-Knee Boots

On Pinterest I always see pictures of women wearing chic over-the-knee boots and I drool a little. The boots are so chic and look effortlessly stylish. They look so slimming, too! Well, as we have heard time and time again, some things look better in pictures than they do in real life. Over-the-knee boots are one of those things. As it turns out, styling and being able to pull off over-the-knee boots is actually a bit of a challenge because they don’t always flatter every body type and style preference! Here are a few tips on how to wear them for every body type.

 

  1. For tall girlies: You ladies have it the best when it comes to over-the-knee boots. Your long legs are beneficial because the bootsboots accentuate them and make them look even longer! Pair them with a simple sweater dress for a great balanced between your boots and your hemline.
  2. For curvy ladies: If you have curves you can totally rock these bad boys! It is all about how you wear them. Go for a pair that hits right above the knee and creates a lean, long leg line with some dark denim jeans. As for your top, wear a long sweater or blouse to finish the ensemble off.
  3. For petite gals: When it comes to my petite pals, I suggest pairing over-the-knee boots with fitted pieces that show your shape. It is important not to overwhelm your small frame! Don’t wear tops or dresses with long hemlines that make your legs look short, go for tops/dresses/skirts that leave plenty of space between your hemline and boots.

These stylish boots can work for any body type! You just have to know how to style them in a way that works with YOU. 🙂

The leaves are done changing and the cold air is unfortunately setting in. Big sweaters and long sleeved shirts just aren’t going to cut it. As much as I love fall, I’m ready to dig out my winter coats! I wanted to share with you five of my favorite styles that are popular and trendy for the upcoming season!

  1. In my recent trip to New York, I tried out a knee-length coat to bear the cold weather in, and I’m absolutely obsessed!Chelsea Crockett - Coat This style of coat is extremely warm… and stylish! I also love the knee-length cardigans. I highly suggest them for not only warmth but so you can rock the hottest trend too :).
  2. Puffy coats have been around for decades, and are still sold almost anywhere. Once again, they’re extremely warm and cute to wear with a stylish pair of boots.
  3. For more on the style side of things, crop jackets are super fashionable for the season. The only downside to these is that they might not keep you as warm! You can always layer or add some warm accessories such as a scarf or earmuffs.
  4. A newer style that I’m starting to see in the fashion world is poncho coats. I’m in love! Despite the fact that they might not seem as warm as they look, they actually are! You can buy them at several stores such as Forever 21 and H&M.
  5. A vintage, timeless style that never seems to go out of style is pea coats. You can find them in any color you can think of. My favorite ones are neutral colors. Tan, black, white, or grey are usually what I shop for!

What’s your favorite type of coat? Let me know below :).

Love, Chelsea

There’s an endless variety of exercise fashion. Nike shorts, Lulu Lemon headbands, and fun water bottles are just a few of the hundreds of popular trends for working out! With winter here, you won’t be wearing many shorts and tank tops on your daily runs. Since the temperatures have dropped, here’s what hot for the cold :)!

  • Patterned running tights are so cute and stylish to exercise in! Chelsea Crockett - Nike Running TightsTights, like the ones on the right, come in tons of different colors and patterns. You can find them almost anywhere including Target, Nike, Under Armour, online, etc. Some leggings are insulated with fur and others have cool reflector patterns so you can run at night! Check them out online or click here :).
  • Ear warmers are some of best things to own in the cold months. My favorite brand to sell these are LuLu Lemon. They have lots of different reversible patterns and colors. They don’t only keep your ears warm but can be worn with outfits apart from exercising!
  • High neckline hoodies and jackets have made a statement this winter. If you’re looking for one, Nike is definitely the place to find it! They have both zip-ups and hoodies that have a high neckline that keeps you warm when you’re out in the cold!
  • Lastly, puffy vests are fashionable and warm for the cold, outside temperatures. Most are insulated and zip up to protect not only your torso, but your neck from the wind and weather, too. You can find lightweight ones that are almost weightless to run in.

What’s your go-to winter exercise outfit? Let me know below!

Are you into the retro look? Do you like rocking clothes that have a throwback vibe? Then you will love the bell-sleeve trend. The wide sleeves give a free-spirited vibe to the pieces. The sleeves sort of remind me of pictures I have seen of disco dancers back in the ‘70s! Here is how to rock the throwback look today.

  1. Casual: If you want to casually incorporate bell-sleeves into your daily wardrobe, opt for a simple, loose-fitting tunic type shirt with subtle bell-sleeves. Pair this with distressed jeans for a subtle, casual look.bell
  2. Semi-casual: If you are going more for a “dinner with friends” or a cute date look, opt for a more dressy blouse-type shirt with bell-sleeves paired with simple skinny dress pants or solid jeans. Add in a felt hat or booties for accessories.
  3. Dressy: If you are looking to dress things up, pair a bell-sleeve dress with thights and boots. Now this outfit isnt TOO dressy, so it can be used in semi-casual situations as well. I love the combo of tights and booties with the dress. Totally classy, totally trendy, and totally cute! Toss on a felt hat to add some personality to the outfit.

What do you think of bell-sleeves? Will you wear the trend?

XOXO, Chels

Don’t get me wrong, stylish coats and designer boots are trendy and popular for the cold months ahead. It’s fun to treat yourself and splurge every once in a while! But of course no one can afford to do that every time they need something for winter. So, I put together a little look for less that lets you find coats, boots, and other seasonal necessities for much less!

First comes first, you’ll need boots for any snow you might encounter this season. Hunter rain boots have been popular in the fashion world for a while now, but their prices can be pretty expensive. Chelsea Crockett - Puffy CoatYou can buy rain boots at Target for less than $40! They sell a wide variety of different styles, colors, and patterns. Some as cheap as $20! If you don’t mind spending a little bit more, DSW also has a great selection.

What’s winter without a warm, puffy coat? Prices on coats too can range pretty high. You may be worried about the quality of inexpensive coats but I’m here to help! Brands such as Michael Kors and Patagonia sell super cute styles of winter coats but finding a decent price can be difficult. Burlington and Target both sell good quality coats for a good price. Also, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, and Kohl’s sell coats that are marked down to wear they’re actually affordable! Check them out!

Let me know where you find the look for less in the comments below!

With every one of my winter outfits, there’s a high chance you’ll find a stylish pair of riding boots or a fancy pair of heeled booties on my feet! My favorite thing about the cold weather is all the different styles and brands of boots to shop from. There are five well-known brands that stick out when I think of good quality, winter boot brands.

  • Timberlands. Timberlands have almost any type of boot from riding to snow. They’re long lasting and perfect for the cold seasons!
  • LL Bean. If you’ve heard of Bean boots, I’m sure you know how fast they can sell out! They have a certain trademark style that everyone loves. They’re warm and comfy, too!
  • Hunter. I know I’ve mentioned these boots in several of my other articles, but they’re just so great! They may be a little pricey, but their quality is excellent! They come in all different colors and styles, whether you want the classic, black knee-highs or matte purple short boots!Chelsea Crockett - Sorel Boots
  • Sorel. Sorel boots may be on the pricier side, but they make for a great Christmas present (such as the pair on the right) :). They’re perfect if you live in a snowy area or the temperatures are extremely low. They have a large variety of styles and colors and are sure to keep your feet warm and dry
  • UGG Australia. We’ve all heard of UGGs. You may’ve even owned a few pairs throughout middle school and high school. If you’re tired of their usual fur boot style, you can get several different styles! Check them out.

What brand is your favorite? Share with me in the comments below!

How much do you wear belts? My guess is only when your pants need assistance staying on your tush. Your winter wardrobe this year is dependent on them! Belts, that is. You can build your outfit around them and use them to accessorize! You can also use them to shape your clothes to your body. Bold belts can transform a simple ensemble into a stylish outfit. Here are 3 ways to use belts in your wardrobe this winter!belt 3

  1. Blanket Scarf: Do you ever wonder what the best way to wear your blanket scarf is? They are so thick that sometimes it is difficult to style them. Belts transform your blanket scarf into a cute vest! Layer your scarf over a simple tee, drape it over your shoulders, and tie a belt around the middle. This gives you some curves and adds layers to your look.
  2. Cape: Wear a classy cape with a belt around the middle! It breaks up the simplicity of the cape and, like the option above, it gives you some shape.
  3. Printed: This last option is the simplest of all. Wear a patterned belt, like leopard print, with a simple shirt and jeans for a simple but sassy outfit. If you want to wear a simple neutral sweater with jeans, wearing a printed belt takes your outfit to the next level.

Belt it up!

XOXO, Chels

Winter is quickly approaching and sometimes, it can be hard to dress cute with layers upon layers of clothing.  I live in the middle of the Midwest, so we get hit hard with snow storms every year.  Throughout the years, I’ve come across some amazing, warm pieces that everyone needs in their wardrobe.  Who says you can’t dress warm and look cute at the same time?!  Chelsea Crockett- cable knit beanie

  • Sorel boots are amazing! They come in all different styles and can keep your feet warm in negative degrees!   Pair them with tall wool socks and a long sweater.
  • Puffy coats are the definition of warmth. Many designers such as Michael Kors and BCBG have made the puffy coat chic by adding thick gold zippers, buttons, and different lengths.  I LOVE knee length puffy coats!
  • Beanies are fab! They can take any outfit to the next level of street style or grunge.  Try a thick cable knit beanie!
  • Vests are everything! It’s the perfect item to throw on during a chilly day.  If you’re looking for a classy look, add a flannel and some riding boots to the mix. 
  • Ponchos are back in! They are absolutely amazing with a long sleeve under and some leather leggings. 

Have a fabulous winter, Insiders!

Okay so faux fur vests are everywhere right now. And I have to say, I am digging it. I might, just MIGHT have bought one from the Target kid’s section the other day. Hey, it was cheaper than the adult one! No shame. Here is how to dress this trend for every occasion.

  1. Casual: Layer a plaid button-down shirt with your fur vest for a great everyday outfit! Pair with some suede booties and aviator sunglasses and you are all set.
    faux 3
  2. Semi-casual: I love long-sleeve t-shirt or tunic dresses. Paired with a fur vest? DROOL! Add in a floppy hat and chunky heel booties for a super trendy ensemble. Wear this shopping, out to lunch with friends, or to a fall party!
  3. Dressed up: If you are looking for an effortlessly chic outfit, look no further than black jeans or leather leggings, a black blouse or tunic, and a faux fur vest. Add in some black suede booties, a black leather tote, and some trendy shades to complete this night-out worthy look.

I know what you’re thinking. Where can I find an adorable faux fur vest?! I have found cute ones at TJ Maxx and Target, but they are pretty much everywhere!

Happy hunting!

Leggings are a girl’s best friend. We throw them on with an oversized t-shirt, a big sweater, or basically anything we can make them work with! Depending on the brand or type you get, they can sometimes attract dust or stretch out more than others. That’s the worst! I’ve found some genius ways you can stretch out the lifetime and keep them clean and fitting!

First come first, where is all this dust and buildup coming from on my leggings? Believe it or not, it’s mostly dead skin. Of course, it could also be other alternative. Particles from clothing can latch on to your leggings and create buildup that way too. Obviously washing your pair of leggings can get rid of dust or other particles, Chelsea Crockett - Leggingsbut let’s be real… wh has time to wash their leggings after every wear? Here’s the solution: moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! Hydrating your skin can lessen these effects. Apply lotion daily especially after you shower. During the winter months, our skin gets much drier so these tips are extra important throughout the cold season.

Sometimes our leggings tend to run and stretch which is not what we paid for! I read online that lightly spraying them with hairspray helps prevent this. It actually works, too! This doesn’t mean you have to coat your leggings with hair spray. Just lightly mist them before putting them on or after a wash.

Do you have any secrets to preserving the life of your leggings? Share them with me below!

I’ve recently been on an accessory kick. I love all the new, edgy jewelry and shoes that have come into the fashion world! Since I’m an Instagram fanatic, I’ve seen tons of chic looks that are ten times more stylish due to the trendy accessories they pair with it. Here’s a little insight on the newest ways to accessorize!

  • Gold and silver watches, such as Michael Kors and Fossil, have been big for a while now. I saw on Pinterest that stores are starting to sell matte black watches! How edgy is that? Some of the watches are accented with silver or gold so you can pair the rest of your jewelry accordingly!
  • I love owning a couple pairs of rain boots to change out for the rainy/snowy weather. Instead of patterned, glossy boots, stores are starting to take a turn to matte dull colored ones. I’m obsessed! A brand of boots called Hunter has a wide variety you can choose from. They might be expensive, but their quality is great!Chelsea Crockett - Wedge Booties
  • Since boots are the big thing for fall and winter, you’ll need some that can dress up an outfit! Wedge booties are SO cute and come in all different kinds. The ones on the right are one of my fave pairs!
  • Last, but definitely not least, are boot cuffs! Instead of finding socks long enough to stick out of the top of your boots, you can get knitted cuffs to do the job for you.

What’s your go-to fall accessory this season? Let me know below!

Dresses are my favorite! I hate having to slide them to the back of my closet once the cold weather and snow start to hit. Of course, bright colors and sun dresses probably need to be retired, but you don’t have to quit wearing dresses completely! Check out my favorite ways to rock a dress in the freezing cold!Chelsea Crockett- over the knee boot

The typical way to wear a dress in the cold without freezing is with tights, boots, and a jacket. While this style is classic and always accepted, there are a few fun ways to ditch the tights! Have you ever heard of over the knee boots?! These are great to throw on with a dress and show just enough skin that you won’t get too cold! Another interesting way to wear a dress in the winter is with a tight pair of skinnies. This works best with a flannel or sweater dress (I would not recommend this with a tight dress).

When it comes to a jacket, my favorites to wear with a dress are a classic leather bomber jacket or long knee coat. Totally depends on your mood! Don’t give your favorite dress the boot too soon…you’ve just gained yourself a few more months!
