Where I live, spring is an awkward time between winter and summer where it is cold in the mornings, and steamy in the evenings, so it is so hard to pick out what to wear! You don’t want to be cold in the morning, but you also don’t want to be hot in the afternoon. Here are a few winter to spring transitional outfits that I have found do the trick.

  1. Shorts and a sweater: Your legs may be a little chilly in the morning, but your arms and torso are nice and cozy. Then, in the afternoon, you can shed the sweater and be perfectly comfortable!
  2. Sundress and a jean jacket: Again, your legs may be a bit chilly in the morning, but come afternoon you will be sitting pretty. I love the look of pairing spring sundresses with jean jackets. It gives a casual feel to an otherwise dressy outfit.
  3. Skinnies and an oversized sweater: If you are totally against the idea of your legs being a bit chilly in the A.M., then grab your favorite pair of ripped jeans, a short-sleeved tee, and an oversized cardigan. Once the day warms up, shed the cardigan and you will still be stylin’.

What is your favorite spring ensemble?

Christmas is the best holiday of the year.  Not only do you get to experience good food and good company, but you get to dress up in your most stylish holiday attire!  I always have trouble finding Chelsea Crockett - Christmas Outfitthe perfect outfit to wear for all the family get-togethers and fun festivities that come along with the day.  Depending on what you have lined up, you’ll either need a casual outfit, a formal outfit, or maybe even both!  Here are a few ideas to get the holiday fashion flowing!

Casual: The outfit on the left is one of my favorite looks this year.  Poncho coats and cardigans like the one on the left are super “in” this year.  Don’t be shy to rock a mix of red and green!  Plaid is also the perfect pattern that isn’t too over-the-top.  Pair this look with some gold accessories, a pair of heeled booties, and a maroon lip!   

Formal:  First, pick what colors are appropriate for the occasion.  I would suggest reds, greens, maroon, tan, neutral colors, etc.  Keep it Christmas-oriented!  Long-sleeved high-neck shirts like the one in the featured image above are perfect to pair with a suede skirt and heels!  If you want to wear a dress, velvet is super popular this season.  Pair it with a clutch and a cute pair of boots or heels!

Which look are you going to try out this Christmas?  Share with me below! 🙂

Merry Christmas! – Chelsea

Cardigans are a staple in every girl’s closet. We all have at least one or two! They come in all shapes and size, and in all prints and patterns! Some cardigans fit certain body types better than others, and some fit outfits better than others! Today we tackle the cardigan conundrum. Here is a guide to the do’s and dont’s of cardigans, including the best cardigan for your body type…and outfit!

  1. Your classic, waist-length cardigan: This is the most common cardigan of all. The “don’t” of these cardigans is NOT to wear them with long tops! The contrast in lengths is not crazy flattering. It can give your body a funky looking shape. DO wear them with fitted dresses, or high-waisted skirts or pants. The hem of the cardigan should not be more than a few inches longer than the waist band of your bottoms.images
  2. The oversized cardigan: Patterned oversized cardis can be hard to style sometimes. The “don’t” for this sweater is to wear loose-fitting pants or bottoms with it. It can make you look bulkey and wide, and I don’t think that is a look you’re going for. The DO is to wear skinny skinny skiiiiinny jeans or leggings. Staying slim on the bottom keeps the baggy top in balance!
  3. The wrap cardigan: I love wrap cardigans! They are a little less bulky and more fitted than the cardigans above, but are still drapey and flowy. Don’t wear wrap cardigans with loose bottoms like we mentioned above. The proportions may be off! DO wear these with classy jeans or pants that flatter your figure.

Cardigans are a classy way to stay warm in the winter!
