Top 3 Nike Must-Haves!

I know I’m not the only one who scrolls through Pinterest to find the cutest workout clothes and wants to buy it all. Nike makes the exercise world go around with their endless amount of products that are both quality and stylish. I could go on and go about every cute sweatshirt and each pair of shoes, but I thought I’d narrow it down to three Nike must-haves!

  • One of Nike’s most popular trends right now are Nike Roshes. They’re a different style of shoe that look and feel great! I’m obsessed with all of the different styles and designs. You can even customize your own with NIKEiD! That way you can have a pair you can solely call your own!  
  • If you’re a runner, then I’m sure you already have a pair (or two!) of Nike Pro Training shorts.  I’m in love! There are so many different patterns and colors to choose from! They’re great quality so you don’t have to worry about them riding up while you run. All in all, they’re light, stretchy, and stylish… Chelsea Crockett - Nike TurtleneckWhat more could you ask for?
  • This trend was really big last year, and is still super popular for the upcoming cold months! The picture on the right shows a turtleneck zip-up that is perfect for exercising outside once temperatures start to drop. There are tons of sweatshirts and hoodies you can choose from (the one on the right is particularly my favorite!).  

What’s your go-to Nike trend? Let me know below lovelies :)!

Oxford shoes aren’t just for dudes any more! The style of shoe is making its way up the Hollywood fashion ladder and even Taylor Swift is sporting the trend! They are classy, preppy, and fashionable. Here is how YOU can work Oxfords into your wardrobe.ladies-flat-shoes-1

  1. Casual: The easiest, most casual way to wear Oxfords is with some skinny jeans, a white cotton button up, and a cute pair of sunglasses. If you are feeling sassy, toss in a hat and statement purse!
  2. Semi-Casual: Take Taylor Swift’s style advice and pair a neutral pair of skinnies with a preppy sweater, leather handbag, and retro shades.
  3. Dressy: The “dressier” option is to wear a cute printed dress with nylon tights, a cardigan, and Oxfords! I love the “scholarly” look this gives. It is a little vintage, a little classic, but a lot of cute!

So ladies, this fall will you be sporting some Oxfords? They come in all  types, from simple leather to bright colors and everything in between! There is something for everyone. 

XOXO, Chels

Trends and fads come and go. They wouldn’t be called trends if they didn’t! So many styles and looks that make their way into the fashion world often go unnoticed and fly under the radar. I know I’m not the only one that finds a stylish look on Pinterest and thinks, “why have I not tried that?” or “where did that trend go?” Here are a few that shouldn’t be forgotten!

Chelsea Crockett - Turtleneck SweaterWhen someone mentions a turtle neck, we don’t always picture the cutest shirt or sweater. But I’ve found a ton of blog posts that actually rock them and make me want to buy some myself! The top on the left is a perfect example of making a turtleneck stylish and classy (especially with a topknot or high ponytail).

Another stereotypical “don’t” in the fashion world is overalls. They’re actually really fun to wear and can be worn on tons of different occasions! I even rocked a pair on the Fourth of July! I’ve even seen girls go to baseball games and wear overalls with their teams’ colors and it looks so cute!Chelsea Crockett - Fringe Shoes

Fringe is another look that you either love or hate. In my opinion, it can be totally fashionable! I’ve seen tons of magazines feature fringe shoes like the picture on the right. Wearing fringe like that is so underrated! (Side note: they’re also suede material which is another trend that goes unnoticed!)

What trends do you like that go unacknowledged like the ones above? Let me know below!

Does the thought of putting your summer clothes away until next May make you die a little on the inside? You aren’t the only one! Luckily there are ways to incorporate your summer wardrobe into your fall one. Here are a few ways!

  1. Pull on some pants: Layer some pants under your tunics or sundresses to transition them from summer to fall! Play with the proportions and patterns. For example, layer a pleated white tunic with some earth toned leather leggings!4lc6ef-l-610x610-jacket-leather-boho-chic-dress
  2. Layer in a jacket: A moto jacket/ army jacket is great to layer over frilly loose summer tank tops that you definitely wouldn’t be able to wear without a jacket. Plus, the jacket makes the tanks seem less girly, it gives your outfit an edge!
  3. Blazer love: layer a blazer over a sundress for a classy, preppy fall look!
  4. Color craze: Who says fall has to be about monotone colors? Spice it up! Pair summer clolors, like blush, with fall colors like army green to create a dynamic duo!

See? Transitioning from summer to fall isn’t as tragic as it may seem when you can take your fav summer styles with you!

XOXO, Chels

We’ve all heard the saying “less is more.” It’s the key to high fashion and putting together a chic, stylish look. It’s hard to get the perfect balance when putting together a simple minimal look, but it’s possible with a little help :).Chelsea Crockett - Minimal Outfit

Most girls struggle between wanting to pull off a look like this without looking too plain. It’s not as hard as you think! There are only a couple pointers that you’ll have to follow. First, you’ll have to wear neutral colors such as white, tan, black, nude, etc. Make sure it’s a solid color without any bright or neon shades.

Next, you’ll need some clean cut articles of clothing. Pieces such as blazers are a sharp effect that makes your outfit look elegant and put together. The outfit on the right is one of my favorite examples of this. How cute is that? It may not be your style, but if you like it, it’s pretty easy to pull off!

You might read on other fashion blogs that too many accessories are an absolute no, but that’s not always the case. Yes, chunky bright bracelets aren’t going to go too well with a simple, neutral outfit, but you can always accessorize when it comes to fashion. The best way to do so is with silver and gold jewelry. A neutral watch with a small diamond necklace and studs is how I prefer to accessorize when it comes to this type of outfit.

I hope this gave you some tips next time you want to rock a look like this!

Love, Chelsea

Halloween Inspiration Straight from the Runway

Fashion month just ended…aka I’m having major FOMO! Even though I’m still waiting to attend a fashion week of my own, it didn’t stop me from constantly keeping up with the month of fashion. Between snapchats, magazines, and Instagram, I was fully kept up! A few designers that caught my eye were Betsey Johnson, Jeremy Scott, and Hood by Air. Their shows were so fun and lively, which got me thinking about Halloween. Keep on reading to find out how I got Halloween inspiration straight from the runway and a few pics to recreate the looks!

Betsey Johnson is known for her crazy patterns, energetic shows, and of course…closing every show with her famous splits! This year’s show was inspired by bright colors, flowers, and rainbows. This gave me major inspiration to be a 70’s flower power girl! Break out the bright eye shadow, hair crimper, bright flared jeans, and platform shoes!Chelsea Crockett- betsey johnson makeupChelsea Crockett- Betsey Johnson

I would love to get inside Jeremy Scott’s mind. His designs are genius and youthful. This year, Jeremy’s runway show made me think of 80’s disco girls. Start by teasing your hair as high as it’ll go, slip on a sequin dress, and throw on some heavy eyeliner! Now you’re the dancing queen!Chelsea Crockett- Jeremy ScottChelsea Crockett- Jeremy Scott Hair

The Hood by Air show as crazy! Instead of traditional contouring, they decided to contour without blending! This gave the models a very harsh, almost scary appearance. If you’re looking to be a zombie this year, try out this technique with any colors you’d like!

My final favorite Halloween inspo came from Tommy Hilfiger. His spring/summer collection was inspired by Jamaica and got me in the mood for the beach. Try dressing up in floral attire (Hawaiian print), beachy waved hair, and/or a swimsuit cover-up!   Chelsea Crockett- Tommy Hilfiger

3 Homecoming Must-Haves: Guide to a Perfect Outfit

Homecoming season is here and I couldn’t be more excited! Getting dressed up, taking a million pictures, a night with all your BFFs… Three of my favorite things in one night! Although the night itself is extremely fun, leading up to the event can be pretty stressful. You must find the essentials needed to make your outfit amazing. Here are 3 things you can write on the top of your Hoco to-do list! 

First comes first, you’re going to need a fabulous dress (duh!). Windsor, BeBe, and Express are only a few of the several stores you can shop at! Keep in mind the style and color you want. Walking into those types of stores without an idea in your head can sometimes seem overwhelming! And if you find a dress you love while on the search for another, try it on too!Chelsea Crockett - Heels

Second, you’ll want to purchase some stylish heels. (Depending on the type of person you are, you may want to wear flats. You decide!) If your dress is super simple, I suggest rocking some statement heels! If your dress already has a lot going on, then tone your shoes down with a solid color pair of heels. 

Lastly, you’ll need lots of accessories to finish off your look! It’ll all depend on your dress and shoes, but I suggest wearing a necklace, earrings, and a clutch. Consider the style and how formal your dress is. You don’t want an extremely formal dress with over the top earrings and an over the top necklace. Make sure everything balances and fits together!

I can’t wait to see what gorgeous outfits you come up with for homecoming!

Love, Chels

Every girl has their preferred style of purses. You may be one to throw on a cross body with boyfriend jeans and a tee. Or maybe you just purchased an on-the-shoulder bag to rock with your new dress! Well, if you haven’t heard of them yet, Chelsea Crockett - Bucket PursesI’m going to introduce you to bucket purses, the newest and hottest trend!

If you have absolutely no idea what I’m talking about, look at the picture on the left. These purses bunch at the top and either sling over the shoulder like the one on the left or have a small loop strap to hang on your elbow. I’m obsessed with all the different patterns and colors you can get them in. Some you can even find with fringe or different designs! With fall coming up, they’ll definitely be a necessity in all of your closets! One of my favorite looks I’ve seen with these is a light brown bag with boyfriend jeans, an oversized sweater, and booties. It’s the perfect look for autumn and the purse completes the look!

For where you can find them, it’s pretty simple! For one, Nordstrom’s selection is huge. From a fringe bag to simple and black (or even a mix between the two!), they have almost any bucket purse style you can think of! You can also find them at Forever 21, Macy’s, J. Crew, etc. Or you can check them out on Amazon, just click here!

Let me know what you think!

As I’ve stated a million times before, flannel is one of my favorite fall patterns! A couple years ago, oversized flannels started to be the biggest trend to wear in autumn. Now there are tons of different ways to rock flannel! Here are five of my favorites.

  1. A flannel dress. These have been the craze this season! They can be casual, worn with booties and simple accessories, or you can dress them up with wedges. Either way, they’re super cute! 
  2. A flannel scarf. Wearing one of these with an oversized sweater and booties is one of my favorite comfy outfits for fall. You can find infinity plaid scarves at a handful of places including Target and Forever 21.
  3. A flannel jacket. I know an actual plaid jacket can be hard to find, but using a big flannel as a jacket/cardigan is a perfect substitute! Just roll up the sleeves so they’re quarter length for a better look and you’re set.Chelsea Crockett - Layered Flannel
  4. A flannel layer. I love when people can pull off a layered look for fall. I think it’s super classy and gives off a very put-together feel. My fave way to do this is an outfit like the picture on the right. How stylish is that?
  5. A flannel tied around your waist. This look often comes off as hipster or something you’d see on tumblr, and I think it’s really cute! Plus, if you get cold, you can throw it on as a cardigan!

What other ways do you rock a flannel? Share with me below! – Chels

If you’re like my family, one of the main things we do during the summer is travel, travel, travel!  Some days spent flying from coast to coast or riding the train for several hours can be exhausting… But that doesn’t mean I don’t like to dress in a nice outfit!  Although some of us girls want to be comfy during our travels, we can still find an outfit that provides both style and comfort!

T-shirt dresses have been in style for a while now and I don’t think they’re going anywhere!  Chelsea Crockett - T Shirt DressYou can usually find them for a cheap price at almost any store including Forever 21, Target, etc.  They’re super easy to throw on with a cute pair of sandals or sneakers, whatever your style may be!  If you’re going for more of a girly look, pair your dress with sandals, simple jewelry, and a fedora!

If you want to go a little more casual, you can wear comfy leggings with a simple flowy shirt. Throw on a cute, boho headband and a pair of converse! Jewelry always makes an outfit better, so don’t be afraid to accessorize (I know I’m not!).

Rompers are always on the top of my list for a go-to outfit. If you find a casual one, it can surprisingly be really comfortable (and don’t forget stylish!). They’re easy to throw on like a dress as well! Let me know below in the comments what your favorite travel outfit is!

Fall stripes are the best kind of stripes in my book. There are so many fun ways to layer your striped attire, and the only time to layer is in the cooler months! Now that’s ONE positive thing about cold weather! 😉 Here are a few of my favorite ways to layer stripes.

  1. With a military flare: Pair a striped maxi dress or t-shirt dress with an army vest or an army green military jacket! You could even toss on a pair of black skinnies with a black and white striped shirt and military jacket.fall stripes fashion 3 Don’t forget a cute pair of booties!
  2. Edgy casual: Pull on your favorite pair of ripped frayed skinnies with a striped tee and a pair of converse for an effortless edgy look. You could even swap the striped tee for a striped tunic for those chillier days!
  3. Cute and classy: I think this look might be my favorite of them all. Pair a loose long sleeved striped tee with black skinnies, nude suede booties, a chunky nude scarf and a black felt floppy hat for a look that is too cute for words!

Fall in love with stripes this fall!

XOXO, Chels

Senior pictures are going to be some of the last professional pics you get before you’re out of college and all grown up! Some people think they’re overrated, but I love the idea of picking out a few stylish outfits and having a photoshoot all for yourself. I came up with a little outfit guide if you’re stumped on the best way to dress for your senior pictures! 

First and foremost, your pictures are solely for you. You need to wear what clothes will represent you best! If you’re a girly girl and love preppy, pink sundresses, rock them! Maybe you prefer a minimal look with boyfriend jeans, a tee, and booties. Show it off! These pictures are the one time you can say they’re 100% about you and for you, so make sure you wear what shows your personality best. 

Of course, this part will vary on who you have taking your pictures. But if you’re not completely sure what to bring,Chelsea Crockett - Selfie I suggest two casual outfits and two dressy outfits. For example, I would possibly take a romper and a nice dress. For casual looks, a pair of dark and light skinny jeans with nice, interchangeable shirts is perfect! You can always dress them up with wedges, accessories, and a cute sun hat! I love this outfit I wore on the right, it’s a great example! A long sleeved tan shirt, a chunky necklace, and a maroon hat all tie together nicely :).

If I had to put it into two words: be yourself! Look like your natural, beautiful self!

Good luck! – Chels

I go gaga for gingham. What is gingham? It is a fabric that has a criss crossed patteren that looks very vintage. If you look at the photo in the blog title, you will see it! It was very popular in the mid nineties and is making a classy comeback. I love gingham because it is sweet and simple, with a vintage flare. J Crew carries so many gingham styles right now! Here is how i wear my gingham.ee9dbfba02cd87d4aebb99d4eba1cbab

 1. Tops: I love simple gingham button downs because they pair so well with so many things. I like to wear my gingham shirts with white shorts and nude wedges for a fun summer outfit. Another way you can wear one is to pair it with some skinnies and a leather jacket for those cool summer evenings.
2. Dresses: Oh my stars, I love gingham dresses. They make me feel so classic and vintage, like I could take a step into the ’60’s! Pair your gingham dress with some pearl studs and sweet flats or white Keds for an adorable ensemble.
3. Swim suits: Keep it classic at the pool with this sweet suit. They are so flattering and totally adorbs.
4. Shorts: Gingham shorts are to die for. Pair them with a simple white top and some white keds for an easy, simple summer outfit.
Get your gingham on!

Best Suit for your Body

For some girls, just thinking about wearing a swimsuit in public makes them break out in a cold sweat. There is no need to be ashamed of your body! Plus, the right swimsuit can do wonders for your figure. Here is how to pick out the perfect suit for your body type.

 

The Pear Shape: If you have this body type then you have curvy hips and thighs but a smaller midsection, like Beyoncé! The key is to pick a suit that balances your proportions. Look for bottoms that have a skirt and will accentuate your curves without exaggerating them. Pick a top that draws the eyes upwards instead of down!

 

40943ad8425f53534cf4090df5f9f956

Busty: For you ladies who have been blessed with a larger bust like Katy Perry, you need more support up top! You want a top with molded cups and adjustable straps that help you keep everything in place. Avoid tops with ruffles or crazy patterns if you don’t want to draw too much attention to your upper region.

suit 2

Small bust: If you have a smaller bust like Jennifer Aniston, you need less support from your suit. You can wear suits with ruffles and patterns up top, and triangle tops (like the one above!) help give you a curvier look!

 

Athletic: Usually when you have an athletic build like Kate Hudson you have more of a straight up and down body and have fewer curves because you work them off! You want to choose suits that play up your curves. Swimsuits like monokinies give you great shape!

img-thing

 

Curvy: If you are like Scarlett Johansson and have curves to die for, then wear suits that color block, which can help accentuate your assets while distracting from those things you most dislike about your shape. Steer clear of monokinis or string bikinis with thicker ties, which can accentuate your widest areas.

 

Be proud of the body God gave you!
