Blanket scarves are one of the best things about winter fashion. They come in so many colors and patterns and can be worn a million different ways! Blanket scarves aren’t just meant to be scarves! Here are a few of my favorite ways to style them.

  1. With a belt: if you want to create a vest out of your scarf, put the middle of the scarf around your neck and let the long parts hang in front. Secure the scarf around your waist with a belt to keep it in place.blanket
  2. As a shawl: Wear the scarf around your shoulders as a shawl or like a poncho! It is a warm and easy way to wear a blanket scarf.
  3. The classic way: Around your neck! Sometimes I avoid wearing my blanket scarves this way because it can sometimes feel like they are suffocating me. But other times when I am freezing (the Midwest is COLD!) the chunkiness of blanket scarves is warm and welcome.
  4. Like a bandana: Tie the corners of the scarf around the back of your neck so the scarf looks sort of like a bandana. This is a really trendy, cool way to wear your scarf.

Can you think of other creative ways to wear blanket scarves?

Christmas time means parties and get-togethers galore! You want to make a statement with your style choices, and nail art is one way to do just that! Now you could choose to keep it simple and just paint your nails red for the holidays, but if you want to live on the wild side, try one of these chic Christmas nail styles!

  1. Angled: This style is simple and unique. Just take a piece of tape and cover half of your nail with it. Paint the other half white, let it dry a bit, and then peel the tape off. Paint clear top coat over each nail to seal the color in, and you’re done!nails
  2. Chevron stripes: This style is a new take on chevron. It sort of reminds me of a snow flake! Paint your nails with a clear base coat, then use nail tape to make the chevron pattern. Paint over your whole nail with white polish, and pull off the tape while the polish is still wet. Once it is dry, apply a top coat.nails-1
  3. Subtle sparkle: This style might be my favorite of the 3. It is so subtle and classy. Tape off a triangle at the base of your nail and paint it with glitter polish. You may need a few coats for it to show up. Peel off the tape and coat with clear top coat. Done! It is that simple.nails-2

Statement nails are a great way to finish off any holiday ensemble!

Merry Christmas!

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!

  1. Double-sided buckle: I LOOOVE this trend. It is a fun, unique, Western version of your everyday belt. It has two buckles! My favorite way to wear this belt is to pair it with some black distressed jeans and a loose blouse that I can tuck into the front of my jeans to showcase the belt.e9f97e2d2b26910e30cd6e8cf5104abb
  2. Classic: You can’t go wrong with a simple leather belt. These babies go with pretty much anything. This season, I am wearing mine mostly with dark jeans and a light colored shirt for some cute contrast.
  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!

Vests are a great fall fashion staple. They are great to wear on chilly days when a coat isn’t necessary but you still need a little something to keep you warm. Plus, vests are the ultimate layering piece. There are so many different styles of vests out there this season, so I thought I would round up my top 3 and give you some styling tips with each!

  1. Front-fold vest: This style of vest is pretty new and I am loving it. The inside of the vest folds outward, giving a more layered and dimensional look. This vest is a great casual piece that looks awesome layered with plaid or a solid neutral color.83c6f05b7d84cddc243427512b1e1f56
  2. Faux fur vest: I love these vests because of how versatile they are. You can pair them with a patterned or solid shirt and with pretty much whatever color of pants you want! It can also be dressed up or dressed down depending on the situation.
  3. Quilted: This is the most popular type of vest. These are an awesome addition to your everyday fall wardrobe. They are comfy and cozy and casual. Pair with a simple button up and riding boots for a cute casual outfit, or layer over a sporty hoodie for a sporty look.

What is your favorite vest to wear this fall?

One of my favorite things about high school was going all out for our Friday night football games.  Some of my best memories of my four years were made at our school’s stadium cheering on the team!  Chelsea Crockett - Game Day OutfitWith college, the football game days only get bigger and better, especially if you go to a big school.  Here is a little guide I put together if you need some help picking out an outfit for your next game day!

One of my favorite things that I’ve seen girls wear on game day is oversized jerseys.  I know some schools sell them in a dress style to pair with accessories and booties!  If your jersey isn’t long enough to style as a dress, rock it with a ripped pair of white jeans like the picture on the left.  You can also determine how casual you want to be by wearing wedged booties or a pair of sneakers! 

Incorporating your team’s colors into your outfit is obviously a must.  Although some colleges dress up more than others, you can always accessorize using colored necklaces, hats, etc.  Since suede is big this fall, pairing an off-the-shoulder shirt with a button- up suede skirt is so cute!  Another piece of clothing you can pair your outfit with is a flannel in your school’s colors.  You can either substitute it for a jacket or tie it around your waste!

I hope you enjoy this year’s football season!

When I am planning out my outfits, I always have to plan out the jewelry too. Lately I have been loving the layered necklace trend. It adds dimension and uniqueness to your look! Plus, there are so many variations you can do. I will admit, though, that it took a lot of practice to get the art of layering down. There are ways to make your layering look like it flows and like the pieces work together. Here is necklace layering 101!bbceaaa468e8980d22628679bfd962ce

  1. Play with different lengths: Wearing short, medium, and long necklaces together lets you showcase all three necklaces and also gives your look different levels of dimension.
  2. Work with shapes: Wear necklaces that feature different shapes. This draws attention to the individual pieces and the whole look. Try a necklace with a small circle and another with a bar.
  3. Mix it up: Mix up the different metals! Use silver and gold necklaces in your layering. It adds dimension!
  4. Keep it simple: I have a necklace that I wear every day. I never leave the house without it, and I always feel “dressed” when I have it on. From there I can add pieces to my look if I want depending on my outfit! Also, necklace layering doesn’t have to be done when you are dressed up and going out, it can be done when you are wearing a simple tee and jeans! It can give a simple feminine touch to an outfit in need of some pizzazz.

I love this trend because it is an easy way to express yourself and play with fashion! There is really no “wrong” way to layer.

XOXO, Chels

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!

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!

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

Tattoos are very trendy right now. Although I can appreciate a pretty tattoo, I don’t want one myself. Just a little too permanent for me! I love that there are temporary options for people like me who don’t want to fully commit to a tattoo! Here are a few of my favorite temporary tattoo methods that will allow you to express yourself in a non-permanent way!

Flash tattoos: Flash tattoos are all the rage recently! They are metallic temporary tattoos that come in a variety of shapes and patterns. I like to wear them to concerts or out with friends when I want to feel edgy or to add some uniqueness to my ensemble! When I was out in LA for BeautyCon I saw SO many girls wearing flash tattoos!tumblr_n9qd2924oM1toza49o1_500

Henna: I love henna tattoos because they last a lot longer than flash tattoos and other temporary tattoos and you can make super fun patterns with them! I love how boho I feel when I have a trendy henna tattoo.

DIY tattoos: There are also cool diy temporary tattoos like the “Sharpie and hairspray” one! Draw your desired design onto your skin with a Sharpie. Wait for the marker to dry completely and then rub baby powder onto the design. Spray the tattoo with hairspray and you are all set!

So, if you want the fun expression of a tattoo without the permanence, try these fun temporary tat ideas!

Do any of you lovely ladies have a sweet ride? I just got my drivers permit and am so excited to get a car, just so I can accessorize it! That is half the fun of having a car! There are so many ways that you can “pimp out your ride”.

1. Seat covers! This one is kind of a “duh” but I thought it needed to be said! Seat covers not only protect the upholstery of your vehicle, but they also add some sass to it! One of my friends has zebra print seat covers with hot pink accents. You can see them from a mile away!

2. License plate frame! I have seen some pretty crazy license plate frames around town! There are bedazzled ones, ones that say things like “#1 MOM!” some that have animal print, the options are endless! Since I love Harry Potter, the one below is perfect for my future car!adaa918ad2977457c439b560baad1ddf

3. Rear view mirror ornaments! Now I’m not saying that a set of fuzzy dice is for everyone, but there are plenty of other options to try! One of my friends keeps it simple by hanging a cross necklace from her rear view mirror just to remind her of her faith and show people what she believes. Just make sure that whatever is hanging from your mirror doesn’t distract you too much!

 

No go trick out your rides!

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!
