Sunglasses are always changing styles and trends at all times throughout the year.  That being said, summertime is the perfect time for purchasing a new pair of sunglasses for those long days in the sun.  Mirrored sunglasses are a huge trend in the accessory world at the moment.  Here are a few of my fave brands and products that are worth a look!

My favorite feature of this trend is the variety of different colored lenses.  Whatever your favorite color may be, you can find different shades and hues of which you prefer.  If you like bright colors, you can purchase a pair like the ones below.  You can find them in pink, blue, green, purple… the possibilities are endless.  Maybe even get a couple pair to match with your outfits!  Chelsea Crockett - Mirrored Sunglasses

There are several brands that have paired this trend with fun frames to make unique, stylish sunglasses.  If you’ve read my article about Quay Australia, then you know they’ve perfected this look!  They are just one of the several brands that offer fun, mirrored sunglasses that bring accessories to a whole new level.

Jump on the trend and purchase a pair for yourself!  What other styles are you into this summer?  Share with me below!

Born in the land down under, Quay Australia has been manufacturing sunglasses since 2004. They started roadside on the festival circuit only to windup selling their line of sunglasses internationally in 2009. Their brand has spread throughout the world and all of social media. Even celebs have been spotted rocking their shades!

Quay Australia is not like other brands of sunglasses. They offer tons of unique styles that aren’t like the classic looks such as aviators or wayfarers (although they do offer those as well!). Chelsea Crockett - Quay SunglassesA handful of celebrities have been seen wearing them including Shay Mitchell, Gigi Hadid, and Cara Delevingne! The shades and even the rims themselves come in different colors and patterns.

One of the most popular styles is called “my girl.” Even in this single style they offer four different color combos! The girl on the left is wearing them in the black/pink combo. They also have black/blue, clear/silver, and brown with speckled rims.

Another popular style is called “muse.” If you like simple and the aviator look, then you’ll love these! They also come in four different color combos as well. If you like more of a unique look, Quay offers tons of these too! Most pairs are around $60 which isn’t a bad deal when you compare their prices to other brands.

Especially since summer is in full swing, I urge you to buy a pair for days in the sun! 🙂

Love, Chels

Festival season is amongst us! Coachella in April and many more to follow throughout the summer that are on my not to miss list. Festival style mainly revolves around the Boho-styled look. Lots of jewelry, fun patterns, and unique materials are fun to experiment with for your festival! Here are some pointers when picking out your outfit!

At festivals like Coachella, picking out your outfit is only the first step. Accessorizing should be your main focus in putting together your look. Fringe purses, circulaChelsea Crockett - Festival Jewelryr sunglasses, and chunky rings are all in this year. The picture on the left shows someone who took accessorizing to another level. Metallic tattoos are so cute and can be bought in gold or silver to match your jewelry. Check them out!

As far as the actual outfit goes, Boho patterns are where it’s at. Loose patterned shorts and rompers are not only comfy but stylish! I’ve recently been seeing two reoccurring trends in upcoming festival style: hats and midi cardigans. Hats are fashionable and are perfect for being in the sun all day! As for midi cardigans, ones that are patterned and light-weighed are cute and good for the heat.

If you’re going to a festival this year, which one? Also, what look are you going for? I may need some ideas :)!

4 Steps to Rocking Boho Accessories

If you’ve seen pictures of over-accessorized wrists and hands with indie styled jewelry, then we’re already on the same page! The picture above shows someone rocking the boho styled accessory look. There are four main steps to complete this trend yourself. Keep reading to find out how you can achieve it, too :)!

  1. Boho styled outfits usually incorporate subtle or neutral tones. Paint your nails a color that go along with this color scheme and match the jewelry you’re going to pair with it. I love how the girl on the right went with white nails to compliment her silver jewelry. Try it out!Chelsea Crockett - Boho Accessories
  2. Next come the rings. Whatever color you choose for your jewelry, it all needs to match. If you go all gold, keep the gold color scheme. Same with silver, rose gold, etc. Layer different styled rings with a variety of jewels and shapes.
  3. After you have your rings, find some bangle bracelets to go with them. Alex and Ani is known for their bangles and are perfect for layering.
  4. The last step is optional and only adds to the boho, indie theme! Metallic tattoos such as the ones above are fun to try out! They remind me of Henna tattoos but are easier to get off and much less expensive. You can find them at a variety of different stores such as Topshop, Forever 21, Urban Outfitters, etc.

Let me know if you like the look as well!

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!

Winter Fashion: Belt Style

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

3 Watches for your Wardrobe

Watches are a classic statement piece. They add a timeless touch to any outfit, plus, they make sure you are on time! 😉 Today I am going to tell you the 3 watches every girl needs in her wardrobe. Each is unique and adds its own special flare to any outfit it accents! Plus they can be worn year round because they are so versitile.

  1. The classic: Every girl needs one watch that goes with evvvverything. These watches can be worn to school, to work, and then out with friends even when you have changed your outfit 3 different times! It is versitile and classic. I love this Kate Spade watch because of the adorable gold and white face and the cute leather band.watches 3
  2. The statement: A statement watch can be the focal point of your whole outfit! I love this map-faced watch. It reminds me of my love for traveling! I also love it because it has a sort of boho/vintage/hipster flare to it!
  3. The unique: If you want to add dimension to your outfit, you need a wraparound watch. The strap wraps around your wrist a few times which gives it a unique look. I love this look because it is a little edgy! I would wear it with an oversized neutral sweater or a military jacket and some ripped up black skinny jeans.

What kind of watches make up YOUR wardrobe? Comment below which one of these three is your fav!

XOXO, Chels

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!

There is a new jewelry trend that I have been keeping my eye on for a while, and it is raw stone jewelry! I have been really into the “earthy” and “nature” styled look lately and this jewelry encompases both of those attributes. I love the subtle uniqueness of each stone, every piece is different! The pieces are also very simple and understated which I love. Here is how to rock this free spirited trend!

Pendants: Etsy has a TON of raw stone/crystal pendants on their site. A simple stone pendant can add character and uniqueness to any outfit. I recommend pairing a simple flowey top with a stone pendant and dark jeans with suade booties and a felt hat for a free spirited look.raw 3

Rings: These are also very popular on Etsy. If I could I would rock one of these on every finger! I love the subtle earty tone these rings add to your look. You can literally wear these with every outfit!

Crystal cuff: Crystal cuff bracelets are another way to make this trend work for you. Each one is so unique because of the stones featured on them. You can find tons of them on Etsy!

So what are your thoughts? Would YOU wear jewelry that features raw stones? I think the ring is my favorite piece. If you are looking for simple, unique, versitile accessories then raw stone jewelry is definitely for you!

XOXO, Chels

Bandanas aren’t just for mopping up forehead sweat anymore! Dollar store bandanas can be one of your most versatile accessories this summer. Read on and I will tell you how! 
 

1. Around your neck: Fold the bandana diagonally and then roll it like a snake. Then tie it around your neck in the front for a throwback, classic look. Bandana6

2. As a hair accessory: Give your look a vintage flair by tying the bandada under your hair and using it as a headband! Wear the knot on the top of your head for a cute accent. You can also braid a bandana into your hair to add volume and pazazz to your braid! 
3. As a handbag accessory: Wrap a bandana around the handle of your handbag and knot both ends. This gives your handbag some personality!

We all know that one girl who looks like she’s got it together all the time. Her hair is always done, her outfit is always on point, and her makeup is perfectly applied. How DOES she do it?!  Come to find out, it really is not too hard! All you have to do is follow these tiny tips.

Hair: This is the most important layer of the cake! Even when everything else is a mess, if your hair it is done it can give the illusion that you aren’t truly a mess. Running short on time or motivation? Toss your hair into a stylish braid or simple bun. FullSizeRender (7)

Clothes: This one is not too hard! The main tip is to make sure you avoid clothes that do not fit, because ill-fitting clothes can make you look on the frumpy side. Pick pieces that flatter your body.

Makeup: Not feeling the whole “makeup” thing? Just simply fix your brows, add some tinted moisturizer, some mascara, and a little concealer and you are all set.

Accessories: If you want to maintain a “put together” look, always add in an accessory of some sort, even if it is simply a cute handbag or pretty necklace.

Now you can look put together 24/7!

XOXO, Chels

Think of all the daring, bold trends there are out in the world. There’s hundreds! Some are a little too crazy but others are just the right amount of unique that you can totally pull them off. There are some popular trends that I’m doubtful about trying, but there’s no reason to be! Here’s some encouragement to try some of these outside-the-box trends.

  • Most of the time, black nail polish is referred to as “dark” or even “high fashion.” It’s made a total come back in 2015! Everyone has started to wear it, and you can too! It makes a statement and gives off a chic look.Chelsea Crockett - Overalls
  • Winged eyeliner can either look gorgeous or be completely messed up in the process. As long as you do just the right amount, you can 100% pull it off! I was a little iffy about trying it at first, but now I can’t wear it enough!
  • This trend is pretty debatable, but overalls have made a surprising come back! My favorite type is a pair like the ones on the right! Throw it on with a cute pair of sneakers to get the retro look.
  • Big hats are more of spring/summer trend, but you’re in luck! In most parts of the US, spring weather has come a little bit early! Some girls think big hats aren’t for them or are too different to wear. You can totally pull them off! They’re super stylish and are extra cute with a sundress. If you go to the beach or pool, throw one on with your cover-up! Too fab :).

What are some other trends you dare to try? Share with me below!

What’s more chic than an all-black outfit?! It’s the most fashionable and flattering color there is!  So how is it possible to rock black on black without looking boring?  Check out all these tips and tricks to sporting a posh all-black outfit.Chelsea Crockett- all black outfit

It’s important to change up fabrics. If you decide to wear a black sweater, try pairing with it leather skinnies.  This goes for a cotton tee as well.  If you decide to rock a black sheer or silk blouse, then black denim is the way to go.  Try wearing a shiny material either on bottom or on top and a duller material on the other.  It’s important to keep a good balance, so you can see the change in fabric!  The key to spicing up your outfit is adding lots of accessories.  Layer yourself in gold or silver jewelry, a sleek pair of boots, and maybe a hat.  This will help break up your outfit and add more to it!

Don’t be afraid to try an all-black outfit this winter!

XOXO,

Chelsea

What’s better than walking around you house in a big t-shirt and no pants?  Nothing!  Can I get an “amen” girls?!  The second best thing is a t-shirt dress, AKA a long, comfy tee that is actually stylish!  Even better?  It’s totally acceptable to wear almost anywhere!  Check out how to style a t-shirt dress for any occasion!Chelsea Crockett- t-shirt dress

The simplest way to rock a t-shirt dress is to throw it on with sandals and some jewelry for warmer months.  I love adding a scarf and hat to bring more to the outfit.  This is perfect for a lunch date or shopping.  It’s even comfy enough to wear around the house, not to mention it’s super cute too!  Once it starts getting cooler, a long-sleeved t-shirt dress is the way to go!  Try it with a pair of boots and a quilted vest.  You can always dress it up with flats or wedges and a cardigan.

Accessories are the key to dressing your t-shirt dress up or down.  The more accessories you add, jewelry, purse, type of shoes, hats/headbands, the dressier your outfit will become!  Experiment with different colors, patterns, and accessories.  The possibilities are endless with styling your dress!  Comment below if you own a t-shirt dress and what’s your favorite way to end it.

Love,

When it comes to jewelry, I love the phrase “less is best.” A popular trend right now is minimalist jewelry. In a nutshell, it means wearing simple pieces. Less is more when it comes to the minimalist trend, which means making the few pieces you are wearing the focus of your outfit. It means using your jewelry tastefully! Here are a few pieces that totally encompass the minimalist trend!

  1. Midi rings: These rings are SO in! They are so boho and so chic. All the celebs are going nuts over them, I see them wearing these rings on Instagram all the time! They add a little more character and style to your outfit. 6e830ae435c17b4f9ded2bf090dd0bb6
  2. Simple necklace: I love necklaces that are versatile, that you can wear with both dressy and casual outfits. Minimalist necklaces totally fit that mold. They are delicate and simple, and go with anything.
  3. Chic earrings: When I think minimalist earrings, I thing small, delicate, and simple. They add just enough detail to your  outfit without taking attention away from the rest of your ensemble.

I love the minimalist trend because it keeps things simple, chic, and classy. Which minimalist piece is your fav? Comment below and let me know!

XOXO, Chels
