3 Recycle DIYs for Old Clothes

When you outgrow your clothes, or simply get tired of them, there’s plenty of DIY options to give them another use!  Whether it be turning your old t-shirts into a quilt or an old sweater into a scarf, giving them new life is always a fun and creative craft to do when you have the time!  Here are 3 recycle DIYs for your old clothes and accessories. 🙂Chelsea Crockett - DIY Jeans

  • If you have an old pair of jeans that you don’t wear anymore, give them a makeover!  Styles of jeans change so often, so if you have a pair that are out of style, why not trim them up like the picture on the right?  All you have to do is take some chalk to mark the scallops in the right place (you can even use a small Dixie cup to get the right curves).  Then, make the cut!
  • If you have a plain old colored shirt or tank, try out reverse tie dye!  If you know how to tie die, it’s basically using bleach instead of colored dye.  Look up different styles you can make with where you put the rubber bands and go to town! 
  • Maxi skirts have gone in and out of style over the past few years.  If you have one that you never wear anymore, you can cut it up to make it into a sundress or a swimsuit cover-up.  Depending on the material, try it out for yourself!

Have you ever tried one of these before?  Let me know below how yours turns out!

Why You Should Always Change Your Clothes After the Gym

When I have time, I love to hit the gym and workout.  With that being said, I’d be lying if I said I never break a sweat when I exercise. …

When I have time, I love to hit the gym and workout.  With that being said, I’d be lying if I said I never break a sweat when I exercise.  You might not even be aware of what can happen to your body after going to the gym, but here are a few reasons why you should always change out of your clothes after a hard workout!

  • We all know how acne appears right?  When our pores get clogged, especially after a sweaty workout, acne starts to pop up around our body, not just face.  Leaving damp, dirty clothes on for long periods of time suffocates and clogs our pores!Chelsea Crockett - Exercise
  • Okay, this one might be the grossest.  Bacterial infections love to feed off of sweat.  When you leave on damp, sweaty clothing, you’re leaving little to no room for your skin to breathe.  This is the perfect opportunity for bacteria to grow! 
  • When it comes to feet, we all know they can get pretty smelly at times.  If you’re someone that works out every day and leaves your socks and shoes on for hours at a time, they have no room to air out!
  • A lot of the time when we workout, we wear tight clothing such as leggings, sports bras, tanks, etc.  Just like acne, inflamed hair follicles can appear from suffocating your pores.  If you’ve ever had one before, you know how uncomfortable and painful they can be!

Crazy, right?  Well, now you know!  Make sure you’re always keeping your body clean and fresh!

When winter starts to roll in, there are certain things to do to prepare your closet for the cold weather ahead.  I always make sure my wardrobe is ready for the season, whether it be summer or winter.  Make sure you check these essentials off your list so you can be ready, too! 

  • Change your closet from warm to cold.  My closet used to get extremely cluttered with all of my summer and winter clothes stuffed together.  Switch out all of your shorts and sandals for pants and booties!Chelsea Crockett - Winter Outift
  • Purchase a neutral, warm coat that will go with a majority of your outfits.  Finding a coat that is both stylish and keeps you warm is key for the cold weather!
  • Also, purchase a good pair of snow/rain boots.  Especially if you’re in college, walking to class in the snow without a good pair of boots will be awful!
  • Know how to layer.  When it comes to looking stylish in the winter, layering up with different shirts and jackets is a necessity.  I sometimes find it hard to find a cute outfit to wear and be warm at the same time.  Knowing how to layer like a pro is the perfect way to achieve this!
  • Purchase the perfect winter accessories that go with your style.  Accessories such as beanies, scarves, high socks, tights, etc. are the best way to spice up your outfit and make your outfit warmer at the same time!  You get the best of both worlds, right?  

I hope you’re all prepared for an awesome winter ahead!

There has been a recent trend of new businesses and companies sending out monthly boxes filled with sample products and goodies.  Companies such as Faithbox and FabFitFun are two examples of trendy businesses that use their packages to get the word out for certain products.  Stitch Fix is a company similar to this that was recently brought to my attention!

The main point of these boxes is to find things that match your personal style and have fun while doing it!  Here’s how it works.  First, you take a short style quiz to figure out which accessories and pieces of clothing you’ll like best.  Stitch Fix ships the box with 5 either accessories or pieces of clothing right to your door!  Everything sent to you revolves around your style and budget.  You may be thinking “how can I afford this?”  The best part about this is you only pay for what you want to keep and send back what you don’t!  That way you can test out what fits your style and what doesn’t.  It’s like your own personal stylist!Chelsea Crockett - Stitch Fix Box

As far as when you receive each box, you can choose to get them regularly or whenever you please!  After each box, you can give feedback so your next box is even more personalized to what you like.  There is a $20 styling fee but is only added in to your final order!  Another plus is that each item you receive is fairly priced and something not everyone is going to have.  And if you like all 5 items, you get a 25% discount!

Try it out and let me know what you think! 🙂

Adidas has always been known as a sporty, workout brand offering lots of different exercise attire. Recently, people on Tumblr, Instagram, and other social medias have broadcasted the fashionable, street-style side of Adidas. Most either know one side or the other, so here’s a little insight on both sides of the brand!

Let’s start with the side Adidas is known for. Ever since 1949, Adidas has been creating workout and exercise clothing for decades. If you waChelsea Crockett - Adidasnt a pair of shoes, Adidas has anything from soccer to basketball to running shoes. As far as apparel goes, tanks, leggings, shorts, etc. are patterned and unique.

Considering the fashionable side of Adidas, the picture above and to the left are perfect examples of stylish Adidas attire! Retro sweatshirts, t-shirts, and especially jackets are the new trend. They even offer retro-styled shoes that are spreading throughout social media. Pacsun and other stores even sell shirts and other clothing with the Adidas logo, so check it out! This is a perfect example of “street style” which is comfy but trendy. (What’s better than that?)

Let me know below which side of the Adidas brand you like better!

The rustic theme and aesthetic has become a popular trend when it comes to decorating. Items and décor that give off an antique feel are popping up in almost every home or décor store. If you’re not into the whole rustic theme, you can make this DIY sleeker and more fashionable, whatever you prefer!

First off, you’ll need to find a spot in your room that gives you enough space to put your rack. Second, you’ll need to pick out your rack! Chelsea Crockett - Clothing RackThere are plenty to choose from based on color, texture, etc. Some you can even buy with the “worn” look that gives it more of an antique feel. Although most of your bedrooms probably have closets, you can make your own rack for decoration! You can even choose what type of clothing you’ll hang on it. The example on the left uses it for jackets and coats… whatever you want to do!

Another fun part of creating the “look” for your rack is what type of hangers you use. I would prefer matching my hangers with the theme or colors of my room. Your rack will look much more put together when you make it look like a piece of your room. I suggest storing your shoes or purses under the rack where there’s extra room. It keeps your clothing organized and makes your room cuter, too :)!

Let me know how you design yours!

Celebrities are the ones who start the trends and spread them throughout the media, magazines, and online world. Some fashion-minded celebs have even set their minds to starting their own clothing line! I have three in particular that the spotlight has been on recently as well as throughout the years!

Kate Hudson has recently launched her new “Fabletics” line and I’m in love! The brand offers all things exercise. Running tanks, yoga capris, and comfy sports bras are only a small portion of the line. You can get fun patterns or solid colors, whatever style you like best! If you’re interested, sign up for the Fabletics VIP membership and get your first outfit for only $25!Chelsea Crockett - Fabletics

Kendall and Kylie Jenner are fashion icons for their millions of followers. Their line at PacSun offers a unique style with comfy or dressy options to choose from! From suede skirts to cropped tanks, you can without-a-doubt find something to suit your style. A lot of the line has a Boho feel to it and is perfect to rock during the warm months!

Jessica Simpson’s clothing brand has been around for years, but her line can still be greatly appreciated! Not only does it offer stylish clothes, but shoes, purses, jewelry, swimsuits, and sunglasses as well! My favorite parts of her brand are definitely the shoes and purses. They’re always up-to-date with the latest fashions and trends!

Which brand is your favorite? Let me know in the comments below!

There are too many times when I have mini panic attacks when dealing with clothing disasters. Maybe you were eating breakfast in your new favorite shirt and spilled food all over it? Or maybe you were brushing your teeth and a toothpaste stain just so happened to appear? Yeah, I know the feeling! Here are 8 different life-savers for when you have a clothing catastrophe!

  1. If you’ve ever accidentally gotten gum on your clothing, then you know how frustrating it is to get it off! Simply take an ice cube and hold it on the gum. The gum should eventually harden, and you can scrape it right off!
  2. If you’ve you gotten water stains on any type of leather, take a toothbrush and dip it in white vinegar. Lightly scrub the stain until you’re water-free!
  3. If you’ve got a sticky zipper that doesn’t want to move, rub some Vaseline or chapstick on it. This should allow it to glide smoothly!Chelsea Crockett - Sweater
  4. Before throwing away old pilling sweaters, buy a package of Velcro hair rollers! Rolling these on top of your old sweaters will get rid of any pilling or loose threads. Don’t give up on your favorite old sweater just yet!
  5. There’s nothing worse than being in a rush and putting on a shirt covered with wrinkles! If you don’t have time to iron, spray it with a winkle-release spray. If you don’t have any at home, you can even make your own homemade! Just Google the recipe and it’ll be at the tip of your fingers.

What other life saving tips do you know? Share with me below so I can try them out!

Athletic wear makes up a big part of my wardrobe. Whether I’m actually working out or just lounging around, I love how casual and easy it is to throw on. Athletic streetwear is a growing trend that is not only comfortable but stylish too! What more could a girl want? If you’re a little confused on what I mean, keep on reading :)!

If you have a Tumblr, I’m sure you’ve scrolled passed a pair of vintage white Adidas shoes once or twice.Chelsea Crockett - Adidas Jacket They’re so popular that they’re hard to even find in stores or online. Obviously you have to like the look to rock them because they’re definitely unique! Another Adidas retro piece is their vintage jacket like the one on the right. You can find them in black and white or sometimes even in light pink! So cute!

Sweatshirt dresses, oversized jersey tees, and joggers are all different streetwear pieces you can pair with accessories and the right shoes. You can dress them up or dress them down. One way you can accessorize is with hats. I’ve always been a hat fan and now I can benefit from it by pairing them with causal streetwear. There’s tons of different outfits you can come up with. Search on Tumblr and Pinterest for some inspiration! They won’t disappoint :).

Leggings are a girl’s best friend. We throw them on with an oversized t-shirt, a big sweater, or basically anything we can make them work with! Depending on the brand or type you get, they can sometimes attract dust or stretch out more than others. That’s the worst! I’ve found some genius ways you can stretch out the lifetime and keep them clean and fitting!

First come first, where is all this dust and buildup coming from on my leggings? Believe it or not, it’s mostly dead skin. Of course, it could also be other alternative. Particles from clothing can latch on to your leggings and create buildup that way too. Obviously washing your pair of leggings can get rid of dust or other particles, Chelsea Crockett - Leggingsbut let’s be real… wh has time to wash their leggings after every wear? Here’s the solution: moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! Hydrating your skin can lessen these effects. Apply lotion daily especially after you shower. During the winter months, our skin gets much drier so these tips are extra important throughout the cold season.

Sometimes our leggings tend to run and stretch which is not what we paid for! I read online that lightly spraying them with hairspray helps prevent this. It actually works, too! This doesn’t mean you have to coat your leggings with hair spray. Just lightly mist them before putting them on or after a wash.

Do you have any secrets to preserving the life of your leggings? Share them with me below!

YouTube has given a start to aspiring fashion designers and makeup experts around the globe. Without YouTube, I wouldn’t be where I am today! There are gurus online that dream of expanding into fashion or beauty careers and even launching their very own brands… Some of which already have!

We all know, or at least have heard of, the gorgeous Bethany Mota. She just recently launched her fashion brand “Bethany Mota” at Aeropostale. The clothes are girly, cute, and fun! It offers dresses, sweaters, graphic tees, skirts, cardigans, and more! The prices are both reasonable and affordable. The cool thing about her brand is that it’s not only clothing. You can buy bedding, wall décor, and other things for your room! How fun is that?

Michelle Phan, who has been a role model to me since my early YouTube days, has a makeup brand called “Em.” Of course, it offers the basics: face, lip, and eye makeup. But something different about her brand, is that it offers several different “life palettes.” You can purchase a “night life,” “beach life,” or “party life” palette that includes blush, lip glosses, lipsticks, and eye shadows. There are a few other palettes you can choose from such as “love life” and “day life.” Check it out!Chelsea Crockett - Life Palette

If you know who Tanya Burr is, than you must know she has a brand of her own as well! Her brand has tons of different nail polishes, lip glosses, and false lashes to choose from. You can pick which trio set of nail polishes you want and give it to a friend as a gift (or keep it for yourself!).

Which brand is your favorite? Let me know below!

How to Stay Warm without Losing Your Style

When it’s freezing cold outside, the last thing you want to do is leave your warm, cozy house… But when you’re forced out into the harsh weather, you have to be bundled up from head to toe! Despite the falling snow or bitter winds, you’re going to have to find some ultra-warm clothes to keep warm. Sometimes this makes it harder to keep your style and look fashionable (and who knows, maybe you’re going on an ice skating date?)! With that being said, here are some pointers on how to do just that!

  • Maybe you have a light coat that you want to wear but you don’t think it’ll be warm enough. Layer! You can always wear a long-sleeved shirt underneath a sweater and then you’re stylish coat. Or try finding a fleece zip up or something along those lines to rock underneath!
  • Boots are always the key to keeping your feet warm. Find a stylish pair such as snow boots, combat boots, or booties! Depending on how dressy you’re going, you can always wear a think pair of boot socks to stick out of your fashionable boots.Chelsea Crockett - Snow Boots
  • Accessories are the key to any good outfit, no matter what! So, find a cute scarf, hat, or pair of gloves that match your outfit to spice it up.
  • Lastly, find the perfect coat to seal the deal. Instead of a plain fleece jacket, try rocking a pea coat, puffy coat, or even a fleece or fur vest (cause vests are totally in!).

So whatever the frigid occasion may be, ice skating or maybe a Christmas parade, I hope these help you out!

How to Become more Stylish

We all have that one outfit that is our “go-to” outfit. When we cannot find a single thing we want to wear, this is the outfit we fall back on. Or, you just love the ensemble so much that you just love wearing it. Whatever the case, we all fall into fashion ruts. Lucky for you, digging yourself out of the rut is super easy. So grab a shovel and let’s get to it!

  1. Step out of your comfort zone: Do you have an article of clothing that you absolutely adore but have never photo (4)worn because it is not something you usually wear or that people around you wear? Forget other people, wear what you want to wear! Making a statement with your clothes is so much fun, and you will get so many compliments from those around you!
  2. Clean out your closet: Cleaning out your closet helps you get an idea of what clothes you wear a lot, what clothes you don’t wear very much but should, and clothes that you’ve never worn (aka the ones with tags still attached). Cleaning out your closet also helps make room for things that you actually need.
  3. Find your perfect shade of lipstick: Wearing lipstick makes me feel powerful. Lipstick is the perfect motivator. How? Let me ask you this: are you tempted to throw on a tshirt and leggings when wearing red lipstick? No ma’am. You want to work that lipstick with a fierce outfit. It motivates you to dress things up!
  4. People watch: No, I don’t mean stare at them uncomfortably. What I mean is when you are out in public pay attention to the different styles people are wearing around you. When you are sitting at Starbucks with your bff, take a leisurely look around at what other girls are wearing and pick out outfits that you would wear or that you like. This will give you inspiration on how you can use different pieces in your closet or how you can switch things up!

Are you ready to become the more stylish version of yourself? So am I!

XOXO, Chels

What’s Your Best Color?

             So, you have blonde hair and pale skin.  You love how some colors look on you and hate others.  Why is that?  Well, everyone has certain colors that look best on them based off their skin tone and hair color.  Everyone is different, so choosing the right colors is important for a killer outfit!

            Having blonde hair usually means you have lighter skin, which calls for special color choices.  If you have blue eyes, then definitely go for a royal or icy blue.  This will really highlight your eyes without making you look washed out.  Pink and green are also complementary colors for blonde haired people.  Pink will give you that “cool” complexion, while green enhances gold hues in your hair.  Last, nudes, neutrals, and silver are also a safe bet for blondes.  These colors add warmth to your complexion making you appear to be tanner than you are.Chelsea Crockett- neutral colors

            Deep and bold toned colors are best for brunettes.  Since brunettes typically have a more olive or tanner complexion, it’s easier to pull off bold colors.  The true winners for brunettes are red, orange, and jewel-toned colors such as plum, ruby, emerald green, and gold.  All of these colors highlight the dark tones in your hair and can pull out red hues if you happen to have a red tint in your hair, such as auburn.  All of these colors complement your skin tone and hair color at once. 

            If you have red hair, make sure to avoid red, yellow, and orange in your wardrobe.  These color choices would be overkill for your complexion giving it a reddish tint.  Instead go for greens, navy blue, lavender, and shades of brown.  These colors will complement your skin tone, keeping your skin from looking red.  For a burst of color try turquoise to really bring out your red hair.

            Knowing how to work your hair color and skin tone are important for a to-die-for look.  Next time you’re out shopping, keep an eye out for these specific colors!

Love,

            Chelsea

           A beautiful, bold, or subtle color is an obvious part of any wardrobe.  Whether you’re wearing a hot pink dress, black blazer, or jean shorts and a neutral tee, the colors you wear say a lot about your personality.  Next time you take a look at your outfit or closet, check out which color you own the most of!

  • Black: If you find yourself wearing a lot of black, you’re probably a strong, powerful woman.  Black is a fierce color, which is perfect for a job interview or a presentation day at school!
  • Brown:  This is a very down-to-earth color, which exerts a chill mood.  Try wearing brown for a casual day to the park or a day lying around the house.
  • Purple/Blue/Green:  Deep bold colors like royal blue, emerald green, and purple show intelligence and creativity.  Incorporating these colors in an outfit show a fun side to any personality through a pop of color. 
  • Yellow/Pink:  Those who wear yellow and pink have a fun side to them!  Yellow and pink are bright, bubbly colors which are perfect for anyone who is upbeat.  Try wearing these colors more during this spring season.
  • Red:  This is one of the most ambitious colors out there.  Red shows power and energy.  Most people who wear red are goal-oriented, courageous, Chelsea Crockett- red dressand aren’t afraid to stand out!  You can’t be shy if you’re wearing red!

Colors are so powerful and tell a lot about a person!  If you’re bored of your wardrobe, try adding color and flaunt it!

XOXO,
