Whether you live by the beach or the pool, you’ll not only need cute swimsuits to wear while spending your days in the sun but stylish cover-ups to go along with them! There are three styles that are unique, trendy, and perfect to quickly slip on over your suit.

  1. Wrap cover-ups are one of my favorite trends this summer. The picture on the right shows an example of a stylish wrap dress that’s super easy to throw on for days at the beach. I love how simple and light it is for long days spent in the sun!Chelsea Crockett - Wrap Cover-up
  2. When I think of a cover-up, I want something that’s light and can bear the heat. Lace cover-ups fit this description perfectly! Such as the one above, lace allows a breeze to cool you off much easier than other cover-ups. It’s my go-to for a hot day in the sun :)!
  3. Tunic cover-ups are more on the fashionable side. You can find them in all different colors, materials, patterns, etc. These are more common and easier to find throughout the mall, at department stores, etc. Along with lace cover-ups, they’re light, cool, and easy to throw on!

Which style is your favorite? Let me know below!

Concealer is a life-saver, but only if you know how to use it. It took me a while to master the art of concealer! Finding the right color for you can be tricky, plus applying it the right way is a mystery to most! Here are my top 5 tips on everything concealer related.

  1. Color is key: There are shades of concealer that will help neutralize your specific skin tone! If you have dark purple spots around your eyes, use red concealer to cover them up and neutralize the dark circles. To find what concealer color works best for you, look at the undertone of your under eye circles.
  2. Different concealer formulas work better on different parts of your face: You may need a few different concealers in different colors to help cover everything. You can use a concealer that is skin tone, but having the right formula and color for the job makes a huge difference.concealer
  3. When to apply: Apply concealer after foundation to prevent brushing the concealer away. It also helps you use less concealer! Top it all off with powder.
  4. Let your concealer set: Let your concealer “cook” or melt onto your face for a few minutes. Your body heat will warm it up, and it may change color or texture a bit. After it has melted a bit, then you can work with it and blend it into your foundation.
  5. If you like to keep things simple: If you are more of a “do the minimum” makeup kind of person, just apply concealer under your eyes, at the corners of your mouth, and next to your nose. It will help you camouflage redness or darkness in those areas quick as a flash!

Hopefully these tips help you conceal to your heart’s desire!

Which way to the beach? I know I’ll be dreaming of being ocean side all summer long. Although for most of these sunny months I’ll be stuck in the Midwest, I’m hoping I will get to adventure out to the coast for a few days. I know I am not the only one who is taking a trip to the beach. So for those of you who are, here are a few beach hacks to make your trip not only fun, but affordable and fabulous!

If you are in need of a cute tote bag but don’t want to spend the money, I have the perfect solution! Every-day local stores like Target, Marshalls, TJ Max, etc. all sell extremely affordable yet fashionable totes. You can find one as cheap as 99 cents!

When going on vacation, I like to Chelsea Crockett - Cover Up Dresspack a few stylish swimsuit cover ups along with my swimwear. I love, love, love lace or floral cover ups like the one on the right. Although cover ups are only worn for the walk to and from the beach/pool, I have recently discovered another use that’s worth a share! You can buy a slip (or if you have one that matches your cover up from another dress) and wear it under your lace or see-through cover up. Just like magic! Your cover up is transformed into a simple evening dress that you can rock to the night festivities!

Lastly, if you and the rest of your beach crew are sometimes a little forgetful, you may forget to buy the most important necessity for your trip… sunscreen! A quick trip to Target is an easy fix. One brand that often goes unnoticed is Coppertone’s baby sunscreen. Although the bottle says it is made specifically for babies, it works just fine for anyone.  Many of us have sensitive skin, so this sunscreen is perfect for us!

I wish the best of luck to all of you preparing to hit the beach this summer! – Chels
