I know it’s only the end of January but with spring approaching, we all have one thing on our minds…  What will my prom dress look like this year?  As girls, we love to dress up and have that extra special night with the perfect dress, shoes, hair, and makeup!  This year is no different.  You may think it’s too early to be thinking of prom dresses, but I think Chelsea Crockett - Two Piece Prom Dressthe earlier the better! The faster you get your dress, the less you have to worry about copying someone else or duplicating their dress.

What’s nice about this year is that almost any dress will fit the fashion scene.  If you like long and straight, glittery and full, or even a two piece dress, then you are in luck.  You’ll be ready for the red carpet look.  My suggestion would be to get online and find the style you’re looking for that best fits your body type and your inner fashion style.  Many of the dresses have open backs or high neck cuts.  If you want to be the princess of the ball, perhaps a gown with sheer sequins or tiny sparkles will give you that extra feminine look.

One of the looks I love for this year is a trendy two piece gown.  Many of them have sequins and cut outs to give just the look you are going for.  I still haven’t decided which dress is my exact favorite but I can sure spend endless hours looking at beautiful dresses online and in magazines.  It’s not too early to get started!

Happy shopping! – Chelsea

Flannels are a pretty diverse piece of clothing. They can be worn in so many ways, from wrapped around your waist to layered over a dress to simply buttoned up! Besides being oh-so-warm and cozy, they are also pretty darn cute. Here are 4 ways to fashion your flannels this season.

  1. If you live somewhere where the weather is not too chilly during the winter months but can get a little brisk at times, you can layer a unbuttoned flannel on top of a floaty dress and pair that with boots and sunglasses. If you live where it is chilly, add some tights under the dress to make this outfit work for you!130f87ce746fbc7b509533fa9aa75955
  2. An all-black outfit is necessary every once in a while. Want to feel chick and edgy? Pair some black skinnies with a simple v-neck tee and a black and white unbuttoned flannel. Toss on some boots and a statement necklace and you are ready to rock.
  3. If you have a preppy side, which I think we all do deep down, layer a checked flannel under a cute sweater. Let the collar and the cuffs of the sleeve pop out of the sweater to show the pattern. Add in a statement watch, some bangles, and riding boots to finish off this look.
  4. Add a feminine flare to your flannel by tucking it into high-waisted jeans. Wear some classic nude or brown booties with this to create a sort of retro, classic, almost western look!

How will YOU wear your flannels this fall?

XOXO,

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

Unfortunately it’s that time when I have to start blogging about back-to-school topics (UGH!), but it’s always a necessity to know which trends to rock once school starts up again. Your style is YOUR style, but incorporating different trends into it can be fun!

Shoes are always a fun way to spruce up your look, and this year there’ll be a few trends everyone will be wearing! Last year, some people around school were wearing Chelsea Crockett - ConverseConverse, but over the summer, tons and tons of my friends have hopped on the trend as well! The high top ones are super cute and are fun to wear with boyfriend jeans and a cute shirt! Definitely buy a pair for this school year :).

Certain styles have even made their way back into the picture. Retro styles from the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s, such as puffy vests, Converse (haha!), and high waisted pants, have all made a comeback. Also, oversized sweaters/shirts and layering cardigans or other articles of clothing is definitely in. Although, where I live it’s still 90 degrees, but I’m sure once fall rolls around, this will start popping up everywhere!

Lastly, trends such as graphic tees, boyfriend jeans, floral patterns, denim, and plenty of others will be sure to be seen throughout your school. Let me know below what you’ll be rocking once school starts!

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,

Chelsea

The Grammys is one of the biggest nights for awards, celebrities, and fashion! The dresses seen on the red carpet are drop dead gorgeous and can give all the viewers some insight on what’s hot in Hollywood! Here’s a little bit of what I picked up from this year’s show!Chelsea Crockett - Taylor Swift Grammys

  • All black everything! So many of the stars showed up rocking the solid, black look. Beyoncé, Miranda Lambert, and Jessie J were only a few of the several celebs looking simple, yet chic and classy dressed in black from head-to-toe. Who wouldn’t take fashion advice from Queen B?
  • If you’re blonde, following in Taylor Swift’s footsteps is not a bad idea! Her turquoise colored dress looked absolutely amazing with her skin tone and hair color. It’s not too hard of a color to pull off, and it’ll complement your fair skin and light hair!
  • Although Rihanna’s dress was a little outside of the box, I LOVED its salmon pink color! This color would honestly look great on anyone. Whether you have a darker skin tone and brown hair or light skin and blonde hair, this color is girly, cute, and will be sure to stick out at prom.
  • Most stars avoided the bling and shimmer this year and kept it pretty simple. Several of the celebrities on the red carpet wore solid colored dresses, some with small cutouts or lace patterns. Simple dresses are classy and can be fun to accessorize :).

Let me know whose look was your favorite in the comments below!

One of my writers recently got the opportunity to attend London Fashion Week.  Her experience sounded amazing, so I wanted to share it with all of you!  You never know…maybe you’ll end up at London Fashion Week one day!Chelsea Crockett- London Fashion Week 2015

London Fashion Week was from February 20-24 and took place at various locations throughout the city.  As the most wonderful time of the year began, Lexi started day 1 at the showrooms of the Somerset House, where most of the action took place.  Paparazzi and fashion bloggers were everywhere taking pictures of the high-end and couture outfits of the attendees.  It was hard to concentrate on just one thing!  Models were being rushed in and out of the backstage doors as well as designers showing off their perfect creations.  Burberry and TopShop were two of the biggest shows of this year’s fashion week drawing in celebrities like Kendall Jenner, Cara Delevingne, Kate Moss, and Sam Smith; all of which Lexi witnessed with her own eyes. 

Not only did London Fashion Week consist of fashion shows, but Naomi Campbell also hosted her annual charity show and benefit, which raised money for Ebola relief.  Local designers got the chance to show off their one-of-a-kind creations by holding showrooms and allowing guests to shop at pop-up shops exclusively for fashion week.  As you can tell, it was quite the experience!  Fashion is everywhere and it’s more than just a pretty dress!  Behind every creation is a story and a person with a passion.  

XOXO,

Chelsea (as told by Lexi)

2014 was a year full of fun, stylish trends. Whether it was a crop set outfit with a pair of knee-high boots or edgy DIY shorts and converse, this year’s trends are sure to top even the cutest of 2014. So, what’s going to be hot (or not!) in the New Year? Here are a few predictions made by fashion magazines and icons across the planet!

Chelsea Crockett - Suede JacketAccording to Vogue, suede should be making a killer comeback! This material is different from most, with its warm, fuzzy cloth. It has a vintage look to it that’s classy and mature like the jacket on the left! Another look that is expected to pop up in the spring, is dark denim. Jean, jean, and more jean! Keep an eye out and you might just notice it in every fashion magazine :)!

Indy style was huge last year. Now the Bohemian style is making its mark! Colorful patterns and bright colors are great for the summer. Layering jewelry such as dangle necklaces and bracelets is another fashion statement brought from 2014 to ’15. So cute!

According to Glamour, one-shoulder shirts and dresses are coming back into the fashion world for spring and summer. Soon they’ll be in almost any store at the mall :)! Colors such as army green and yellow are both expected to be seen on the runways throughout the year.

So… pay attention to your fashion magazines and style blogs and you might just see these trends when you least expect it!

It’s almost 2015 which means it’s time to think about what you want to leave behind in 2014.  Time to reflect and rethink things you like and dislike about your Chelsea Crockett - New Years Quotelife.  Time to make resolutions to change your life for the better!  Perhaps you need to switch up your eating and exercising habits.  Or maybe even make new friends?  Whatever you’re thinking, it’s time to set goals and objectives for the new year!

New Year’s resolutions don’t always mean setting them solely for ourselves. As teens, we’re becoming more independent from our families and relying on friends more often.  Do we need to spend more time with our friends or family to make them feel important?  What could we change in our lives to make those people feel special?

Probably the most popular resolution we should consider making would be to eat healthy and exercise!  Whether you’re thin or overweight, it’s important to get the necessary amount of activity to maintain a healthy lifestyle.  It’s recommended for the average high school student to get 60 minutes of physical activity per day (if you can even find 60!). Simply setting a goal of 30 minutes, five days a week would be a start!

Last but not least would be to look at our effort and ability in school.  If we struggle in a certain area, how about working to change that B to an A? Studying more, staying organized, getting more sleep… Whatever your resolution is, I would love to hear about it!  Let me know below and maybe I’ll join you!

Happy New Year! – Chels
