Back to School Essentials for Every Wardrobe: Fall Edition

Ah the start of a new school year!  New people, new classes, and NEW CLOTHES!  Back to school clothes shopping is always a fun way to take your mind off the school work ahead.  Purchasing staple pieces for back-to-school wear is essential in creating the perfect wardrobe!  Check out my key pieces to create your dream outfits for this fall.

  1. Army Jacket: This jacket can be worn with almost anything! Throw it on over a dress to make it more casual or dress it up with a scarf and boots. It’s the simplest thrown on, throw off jacket!
  2. Rain Boots: Fall is a season of rain and snow. Having a pair of rain boots on hand is perfect for those days! Try wearing a pair of tall socks under your boots for cold, snowy days!
  3. Tans and Browns: Fall is the perfect time to break out your tan and brown clothing. Not to mention, it matches EVERYTHING! It’s important to have a few tan/brown sweaters and tees to throw on with any outfit.
  4. Riding Boots: Class up any outfit with a pair of these!Chelsea Crockett- riding boots
  5. Vests: Nothing completes an outfit like a good vest. Try pairing a vest with a button up or sweater to add warmth and style to your outfit. They’re also super cute!
  6. Oversized Plaid Shirts: This is the ultimate comfy clothing item. Wear it buttoned up with a pair of distressed jeans or leggings, or wear it open with a tee. Add to the grungy look by throwing on a pair of combat boots and a beanie (for those bad hair days).

Putting together outfits and shopping for one them is a girl’s favorite hobby.  It’s one of mine!  I mean, I am a beauty and fashion guru!  Have fun expanding your back-to-school wardrobe!

Have a safe and exciting school year!

Back to School Boots

Shoes are my favorite. Scratch that, BOOTS are my favorite! If you are like me, that means you are heading back to school soon. Booo! But, school doesn’t have to be such a bummer. Know why? Because school means that you get to dress to impress every day! And what better way to turn heads than a great pair of boots. Here are my favorite boots for back to school!

Simple ankle booties: These boots can be worn with anything from dresses to skirts to shorts to jeans! It is still pretty hot when school is starting back up, so you definitely want to stick to shorter boots. That is why you can pair these simple booties with skirts or shorts! They are super versatile and add a can dress your outfit up.Cutout-Boots-Under-100

Cut out booties: Have you seen anyone out and about wearing these …boots? I love them. Why? Because they are so
different. They are subtly edgy, but also simple. You can also wear these with these with skirts shorts and dresses, just like the boots above. These boots also have a slight heel to them, so they give you a little extra oomf and can be worn in casual or dressy situations.

Fringe booties: These go with the boho trend that you will be seeing this fall. They are fun, flirty, and free spirited!

Will you be rocking any of these booties when you head back to school? I know I will!

XOXO, Chels

Between sleeping in, endless days spent with friends, and family vacations, going back to school can be a real drag…not to mention a nightmare for some kids!  Although the start of a new school year is something most kids and teens don’t look forward to, there are a few ways to beat the back to school blues. Chelsea Crockett- friends at school

A positive attitude is everything!  When you constantly tell yourself how much you hate school, you’ll soon start to believe it!  Instead, think of school as a time to see your friends and a chance to learn something new.  Don’t spend your last days of summer in “depression”; instead soak in those last few days!

New teachers and classes can also cause anxiety.  Instead of worrying about the unknown, compare your class schedule with friends.  This way, you’ll know which friends are in your classes.  This always makes my mind at ease, because I know I have someone to walk to class with or work on homework with.

Look at a new school year as a new opportunity and fresh start.  If you were disappointed in yourself last year, then challenge yourself to make changes.  Make new friends, join a few clubs, get your grades up, and work harder than ever before.  School is how you make it!

XOXO,

Chelsea

Hi Insiders,

            Unfortunately, school is coming up soon.  I am definitely starting to feel the back to school blues.  Between homework, sports, and clubs, it’s hard to find enough time for yourself during the day.  My stress level can get to an all-time high!  I’m going to give you a few tips to beat the back to school stress and enjoy your time more often.Chelsea Crockett- back to school

  1. It’s good to get involved, but not too involved.  As a student, everyone wants to be involved in everything.  Clubs and sports are so competitive these days that everyone wants to be the captain or president.  Many students join too many clubs or sports and seem to get over-whelmed between that and school work.  Try to pick and choose between what you join.  Give yourself time for homework and yourself.
  2. Don’t wait till the last minute to do homework or projects.  Just because you have a week for an essay doesn’t mean to wait until the night before.  That’s just calling for stress!  Do a few paragraphs a night or work 30 minutes a night on a project until the due date.  This way you won’t feel overwhelmed all at once!
  3. Stay organized!  As nerdy as it may sound, I love my planner!  If you use it correctly, you won’t forget about a project or event you have to do.  I promise it helps!

It’s cool to care about school and yourself.  Don’t let things get to you and cause you stress.  Be smart and enjoy your school year!
