Winter is quickly approaching and sometimes, it can be hard to dress cute with layers upon layers of clothing.  I live in the middle of the Midwest, so we get hit hard with snow storms every year.  Throughout the years, I’ve come across some amazing, warm pieces that everyone needs in their wardrobe.  Who says you can’t dress warm and look cute at the same time?!  Chelsea Crockett- cable knit beanie

  • Sorel boots are amazing! They come in all different styles and can keep your feet warm in negative degrees!   Pair them with tall wool socks and a long sweater.
  • Puffy coats are the definition of warmth. Many designers such as Michael Kors and BCBG have made the puffy coat chic by adding thick gold zippers, buttons, and different lengths.  I LOVE knee length puffy coats!
  • Beanies are fab! They can take any outfit to the next level of street style or grunge.  Try a thick cable knit beanie!
  • Vests are everything! It’s the perfect item to throw on during a chilly day.  If you’re looking for a classy look, add a flannel and some riding boots to the mix. 
  • Ponchos are back in! They are absolutely amazing with a long sleeve under and some leather leggings. 

Have a fabulous winter, Insiders!

Are you a morning person? If you are, I envy you. Most girls are running around in the morning like crazy people trying to get out the door because they slept past their alarms! If you are one of these ladies who is always running late, here is a quick, fabulous hair do for you to try.

 

The Messy Pony!

Chelsea Crockett messy pony

 

Ladies, everyone can rock the classic messy pony. Sometimes, a regular ponytail is just too basic and boring. Spruce it up! Here are the steps to getting that chic, super-fast updo.

1. Take the sections of hair that are at your temples and pull up the section like you were going to do the “half-up half-down” hair style. Spray this section with dry shampoo to absorb all of the access oils! Now that you have the top section of your hair, take the back part of the section and start teasing from the back to the front. Before you tease the small section, spray some hairspray at the root of the hair because this will help the hair to stay teased!

2. As you get closer to the front of your hair, tease the hair less so you don’t see as much of a rats nest. Leave out the front section of hair so that you can use it to cover the teased portion. Mist your hair with hairspray because this will give your hair texture!

3. Take the sections of hair behind your ears and bring them to the front. Now that you have both the top section of your hair and the sections behind your ears all pushed towards the front of your head, take the back section of hair that is left and create your first ponytail. Make it close to the middle of your head, not too high and not too low!

4. Flip the front and side sections back and pin your tease down with bobby pins however you want. If you want a high tease, make it happen! If you want less tease, that is totally fine too! Just pin your hair closer to your head if you don’t want as much tease. Pull your remaining hair back and add it to your first ponytail! If you want to add a little accent to the pony, you can add in your favorite headband.

 

Easy, right? Now go rock those messy ponies!

XOXO, Chels

Who agrees that when you look cute when you work out you feel better and work harder? I know I do! When I wear cute clothes to workout I feel better about my workout. Do you have an old t-shirt that is shoved in the back of your drawer screaming “don’t forget about me!”? Take that poor shirt out, and transform it into a cute workout shirt with me!

chelsea crockett workout shirt1. Find an old t-shirt that you don’t mind cutting up. Lay it out flat on the floor. Cut the bottom hem off of the shirt and also cut the hem of the collar off. Lay these pieces to the side.

2. Cut the sleeves off of the shirt so that it looks like a tank top. In other words, leave about a two inch wide strap.

3. Turn the shirt over so that the back is facing you. Pull the back of the tshirt straps together and wrap the extra strip you got by cutting the bottom hem off of the shirt around them. It should look like this when you are done:

4. Secure the wrapped straps together.

Viola! Now you have a cute shirt to go work your booty off in!

Get your sweat on, ladies!

As the saying goes, “When you look good, you feel good”; and this is no exception to workout clothes!  As crazy as it may sound, dressing in cute, comfy active wear can actually drive you to push harder in a workout (aka resulting in a good workout).  Find out how you can easily spice up your workout outfit game in a few simple steps!Chelsea Crockett- cute workout clothes

Next time you go for a run on a hot day, ditch the cotton t-shirt.  These types of tees soak up the sweat, leaving you feeling heavier than normal.  Also, if you’re wearing a dark tee, then the sun will be more attracted to it.  Instead, throw on a dry fit tank or tee in a bright color to make you feel good and get rid of sweat faster.

Another way to feel good when you work out is to try something new with your hair.  If you prefer to wear it in a ponytail, add a bright colored headband.  If you don’t mind changing it up, try a side braid or braided ponytail.  If you’re very active when it comes to working out and do so several times a week, then investing in good workout clothes is a must.  Just like putting on a cute outfit for dinner makes you feel good, putting on a cute workout outfit will inspire you to work out more often and harder.

It’s time to spruce up your workout outfits and get active!  Nothing’s better than a good workout.

XOXO,

Chelsea

Bow Back Tshirt

When I am at the gym or out an about, I see girls wearing adorable, cut-up t-shirts. They cut cute designs into the back of the shirts or they make the t-shirt into a tank top or crop top. There are so many adorable styles that you can transform your t-shirt into, but today we are going to explore the “bow back” style.

First, you need to locate a t-shirt. This shirt can be an old camp T-shirt that could use a little remodeling, or it could diy-tee-instructionsbe a shirt from your favorite sport’s team that you just want to spruce up a bit. The first step is to lay the shirt out face down
on a flat surface. Next, take a good scissors and cut the collar out of the shirt. Don’t discard the fabric that you cut off of the collar, because you will use it later. Next, draw to horizontal lines, about 4″-6″ apart on the back of your tee. The lines should stop at least a few inches away from the sides of the tee. Cut along the lines. Take the piece of material you saved from the neck and wrap it around the center of the strip of fabric that you created with the cuts above. Add a dab of glue to secure the ends of the ribbing together to create a circle. The back of your shirt should now look like there is a giant bow in the middle!

I love this sweet shirt! It is so cute and flirty. Are YOU going to try this on one of your old T-shirts?

XOXO, Chels

I got the idea and pictures HERE.

I don’t know if you all love bows, but I sure do. There is just something so fun and flirty and feminine about them! Today I am going to tell you how to create a super cute hair style where you use your hair to create a bow! Read on! 

1. Pull your hair into the half-up half-down style, pulling the hair roughly from ear to ear. The more hair you take the bigger the bow will be!

 2. When you are pulling your hair back into the half-up half-down ponytail, once you have wrapped the ponytail holder around your hair twice, don’t pull the hair all the way through. Leave your hair in the loop/bubble position. Face the hair that is sticking out of the bubble towards your forehead.

 3. Split your bubble in half. This is what is making both sides of the bow! Take the hair that is sticking out of the bubble, the ends of your hair, and pull it down the middle where you split your hair. Hold it in place. 

4. Use bobby pins to secure the bow and pin any stray hairs into the bow. Mist with hair spray.

 Easy, right? I am adding pictures for you visual people, sometimes seeing done helps you do it yourself!

I recently saw this tutorial on Pinterest and thought that this so cute and creative! What is really unique about this DIY is that it is totally customizable! What do I mean? You can put whatever quote, verse, or lyric you want on it! On my shirt, I used the quote “When you feel like you’re drowning in life, don’t worry, our lifeguard walks on water.”

 What you will need:

–          Elmer’s Blue Gel glue (It HAS to be the blue kind, or it will not work!)

Chelsea Crockett watermark tee

–          Fabric dye

–          White cotton tee

1. Wet your tee with cool water and place a board between the layers of the shirt, like the lid of a tub.

2. Start drawing! Take the glue and write your favorite verse or quote across the front of the shirt. Pinterest is a great place to find quotes, too! Let the glue dry completely. This may take a few hours!

4. Prepare your tub of dye. Use cool water to make it, and remember that the color that comes out of the tub of dye will be a couple shades darker than your finished shirt! When you get the color you want, lay your tee out flat to dry.

5. When your tee is completely dry, soak it in cool, soapy about 15 minutes. This washes out the extra glue. Toss it in the washer and dry as you would normally!

 

I have found that these tees make great gifts to friends! Do you have a song that you and a friend call “your song”? Then slap the lyrics on one of these tee’s and give it to them for Christmas! They will love it, and it will mean so much to them that you made it!

            Hey darlings!  Blazers are one of my favorite articles of clothing that give off a sophisticated feel to your outfit.  They can be dressed up or even dressed down.  Finding a perfect outfit to pair with your blazer isn’t hard at all with a few helpful pointers!

  1. Throw on a blazer with your favorite pair of colored skinny jeans.  Adding a pop of color to any outfit is nice, but pairing them with a black blazer looks even better.  Although sophisticated, it still gives off a fun, young feel.Chelsea Crockett - Blazer w scarf
  2. Try adding a scarf!  Whether it’s colorful or black and white, adding this creates an older look and makes you look even classierWink.
  3. Crop tops!  Surprisingly, crop tops work with almost anything.  They provide a sleek look to your blazer and bring a chic and edgy feel to your outfit, as well.
  4. Last but not least, try pulling off a modern look.  Simply pairing your black blazer with jeans and a gray tee is super cute and easy.  Not to mention it’s also very casual so you can wear it almost anywhere!  Dress it up with heels or dress it down with flats, whatever works!
