Calling all summer-lovers… Billabong is a super stylish surf brand that sells the hottest summer trends year round. If you like the “beach-goer” kind of style, then you’ll be obsessed with Billabong. Here are a few of the several products Billabong offers :)!Chelsea Crockett - Billabong Cover Up

I know most of you will be spending 99% of your summer days either poolside or at the beach. And you can’t go to the beach without a cute new swimsuit and cover-up of course :)! Billabong has triangle, halter, low-rider, cross back, and bandeau bikinis in all different colors and patterns. As far as cover-ups go, I love big shirts or long dresses to wear over my swimsuit, and Billabong has just that! They have super trendy, yet casual, maxi skirts and dresses to throw on when you’re headed to the pool such as the one on the right! So cute!

If you live somewhere that’s cold year round, Billabong has clothing for you too! They offer sweaters, cardigans, hoodies, etc. So, no matter who or where Chelsea Crockett - Billabong Dressyou are, you can always find something that suits you.

My favorite part of this brand would have to be the dresses. Their style of dresses is very boho chic, which is extremely in right now! The dress on the left is absolutely adorable, how can you disagree?

If you are in to surfing, Billabong is 100% the place for you. They have an entire collection called the “Surf Capsule” which includes wetsuits, surfer tanks, and other clothing and accessories. Check out the website here!

Enjoy! Love, Chelsea

Spring’s Biggest Trend: the Boho Style!

This spring, I’m going boho! I am seeing a strong bohemian style represented in the fashion trends for this spring. I love the bohemian trend because it is so whimsical…

This spring, I’m going boho! I am seeing a strong bohemian style represented in the fashion trends for this spring. I love the bohemian trend because it is so whimsical and free spirited! Here are a few ways that you can rock this unique style:

 1. Natural hair and headbands. In the boho trend, natural wavy hair and printed headbands are key. Flower headbands are also big. Let your hair air dry or scrunch it so that it has some wave to it, and then add in a headband and wear it like a halo! You can see this style in the pictures above.Chelsea Crockett Boho Trend

2. Flowey, light colored clothing. In the picture above you can see the girl wearing a loose, flowey white dress. When I think spring, I think light colors! This loose white dress makes me want to frollick through a meadow of wild flowers, am I right? That is what the boho style represents, free spirited attitudes.

3. Bangle bracelets and rings. As you can see in the picture above, bracelets are a big part of this trend. The more bangles the better! Also, brass and silver rings are a must in this trend! Wide brimmed hats are totally in, also. The brown hat in the picture above is a great example!

 I will definitely be sporting this trend this spring and summer! Will you?

XOXO, Chels

What NOT to Wear on a First Date

    Now that you know what to wear on a first date, let me fill you in on what NOT to wear. 

To begin, try not to go overboard with any part of your outfit. Don’t choose any item that is too flashy or gaudy. For example, you know that neon yellow graphic tee you keep hidden in the back of your closet? Do not reach for it when going on a first date! When you are picking out jewelry, choose items that accent your outfit and personality, not that overtake your outfit or are too chunky. Wear simple pieces that mean something to you, because if he compliments you on it you can use that as a conversation starter! Genius! 

When you are applying makeup, go for the natural look and accent your features. Wearing too much makeup can send the wrong message and doesn’t show your date the real you! Wear neutral eyeliner and a plain lipgloss. Wait until the 3rd or 4th to break out that rockin red lipstick. When you are picking out your outfit, don’t choose anything too revealing or flashy. Go for natural tones and subtle patterns! Don’t wear a shirt or shorts that you will be adjusting or fixing the whole night, wear something that fits you well and makes you feel confident! Also, make sure those bra straps stay hidden! Make sure you feel good about what you are wearing, because the last thing you want to be worrying about on your date is how you look, you want to be focused on your man!

 I know you guys will look totally gorgeous on your first date. Just be yourself!

What To Do With Clothes You Don’t Want Anymore!

Hello Lovelies,

            Dealing with clothes you don’t like anymore or ones that don’t fit can be a hassle.  You feel bad not wearing them and they take up room in your closet.  Sometimes, old clothes can just keep piling up!  Luckily, there are many things you can do with clothing you don’t want anymore!

  • Cut it up!  If you have a shirt that you still like, but is a little too tight, try altering it yourself.  Cut the sleeves so it is a tank top and make the neck a v-neck.  This will automatically make the top looser.  If it is a little tight in the waist either try making a small slit at the bottom of each side at the seam or wash the shirt and stretch it out yourself.  Don’t dry it!
  • If you feel like making a little money, take your clothes to a resell-it shop.  Although you won’t make a lot of money off your old clothes, it’s better than letting them sit in your closet.  Make a small profit instead of letting them go to waste!
  • Donate!!!  Donating your clothing to organizations like the Salvation Army or to a family in need is such a great feeling.  If you don’t need the clothes anymore, then give them to someone who does! Chelsea Crockett- donating clothes

                 Don’t let old clothes go to waste at the bottom of your closet.  There are plenty of other options!  Start today and clean up your wardrobe!

            Hey everyone!  I know I’m not the only one that has a pile of clothes that I never seem to wear anymore.  It just sits in my closet and takes up lots of space.  Luckily, people in the past years have come up with different organizations to help use recycled clothes, toys, and even furniture to pass down to others in need.

            Chelsea Crockett - Donation BoxWe’ve all heard of Goodwill, but have you ever thought about donating?  Simply cleaning out your closet and taking over a load can do so much.  Even the smallest donation can do something for others without you even knowing it.

            Another great cause to donate to is the Salvation Army.  Along with Goodwill, this organization is spread throughout the nation with its mission to provide donations to those in need.  The coolest thing about the Salvation Army is that its message is solely based on the Bible and motivated by the love of God.

            If you want to help, start making a “Donations” pile.  Everything you see in your closet that you could live without goes into this pile and soon enough you’ll be helping families across the country!

            Hey darlings!  In my opinion, organization is the key to everything, especially when trying to keep your room clean.  We ALL struggle with this, but with a few tips it’s not as hard as you think to keep your room clean!

  1. Hanging Space.  If you have a large amount of clothes, try buying smaller hangers.  Avoiding big, bulky hangers will provide more space for your actual clothes.  Try dividing your clothes up into categories (sweaters, jackets/coats, shirts, etc…).  This will make it easier to find things and disappear that cluttered closet look.Chelsea Crockett - Organization
  2. Shoes and Purses.  Having a separate spot for your bags and shoes is a smart idea.  This will help you avoid throwing and shoving your things repeatedly in your closet.  We all know it starts to get overwhelming when your stuff piles in the floor of your closet.  Plus, it looks super messyFrown!  
  3. Fold Your Clothes.  If you fold certain clothes such as plain T-shirts or hoodies, make sure you avoid piling.  Throwing your clothes into boxes, cubbies, or shelves will result in lots of clutter.  Make sure you keep your things neat and folded!
  4.  Cubbies.  Almost anywhere you can find cubbies or boxes to place your clothing.  Hanging shelves or cubbies are a perfect spot to put shoes or your folded tees for perfect organization.

            As far as other accessories go, come up with a creative way to keep your things organized that works for you.  I hope these tips help you stay clean, organized, and clutter-free!

3 Ways To Tie Scarves

Hooray for scarf season! Because this chilly yet awesomely fashionable season is upon us, I thought that it would be appropriate to give y’all some ideas on how to tie your scarves in a few different styles so you are not stuck wearing it in the same old loop all of the time!

The first way that I am going to teach you is for scarves that have tassels or pretty trimmings. First, you place the middle of the scarf at the front of your chest and hold the two ends with your hands. Take the two ends and criss-cross the ends of the scarf in the back. Next, bring the ends back around and tie them in the front. This style is super cute and gives off a kind of western vibe because it looks a little like a kerchief around your neck.chelsea crockett scarf

The second way is to make your own infinity scarf out of a regular scarf. Just tie the ends of your scarf together and viola! Most times regular scarves are cheaper than infinity scarves, so just make your own! Infinity scarves are so trendy and warm!chelsea crockett infinity scarf

The last way is to make a half bow out of your scarf. Adorable, right? Start with a scarf centered around the back of your neck. Make a loose knot on one side of the scarf near your collarbone. Leave a keyhole in the knot. Grab the other side in the middle and slide the middle through the keyhole, creating a loop. Tighten your original knot and fluff the one-sided bow!chelsea crockett bow scarf

Now go out and rock those fab scarves, ladies!

XOXO, Chels
