During the colder months, you’ll most likely find me wearing leggings every day of the week.  They’re so comfortable and can be dressed up or dressed down for almost any occasion.  Although they’re more known for lounging around in, you can pair them with different articles of clothing to dress up your outfits and be just as comfy! 🙂

  • Oversized Sweater and Boots.  Chelsea Crockett - Leggings and a SweaterI’m sure you could already guess that oversized sweaters are going to be back in full swing this fall!  Rock a simple pair of black leggings and a pair of your favorite boots with a big sweater.  This is one of the comfiest outfits ever and it still looks like you put yourself together!
  • Graphic Tee and Sneakers.  I’m a huge fan of the street style look, and this outfit represents it perfectly.  Old rock tees or athletic brand tees with a pair of leggings and Adidas sneakers can still be dressed up or down depending on the occasion!  It’s such a cute and edgy look.
  • Long Poncho.  There was a time when ponchos went out of style, but now they’re back in action, especially with the cold months quickly approaching!  These can definitely be dressed up with a pair of heeled booties and the right accessories.  How cute is that?

Which style are you going to try out?  They’re all so comfy yet fashionable! 🙂

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!

We’ve all seen the movie Greese, and we have all wished we were Sandy in the very last scene with her sleek black leggings and fabulous leather jacket with her bouncy blonde hair. She totally rocks the look! Well, lucky for you, leather leggings are making a comeback. Don’t believe me? Here are a few super cute outfits that will have you totally convinced:

  1. Leather leggings with slouchy sweater: This is the most casual of the outfits. When you want to feel comfortable and laid back but still look super chic doing it, then this outfit is perfect. The leather leggings spice it up a bit while the sweater keeps it casual.
  2. Leather leggings with jean button up: This outfit is kind of the “in-between” outfit that can be worn as an everyday sort of ensemble. Pair your leather leggings with a jean button up, neutral infinity scarf, and nude booties. You can wear this outfit almost anywhere, from school to shopping or even just out running errands! It combines the edginess of the leather with the subtleness of denim to create a perfectly balanced ensemble.leather leggings collage
  3. Leather leggings with peplum blouse and blazer: This is the dressiest option of them all. Pair your leather leggings with a peplum top, blazer, a cute clutch, and your favorite dressy heels. This outfit can worn to any dressy occasion!

You can find leather leggings in stores like Forever 21, H&M, or even Abercrombie! I will definitely be rocking the leather leggings trend this fall. Will you?

XOXO, Chels

Who said you can’t look cute going to the gym?  Well, if you’re used to wearing running shorts and a t-shirt, it’s time to step up your gym style!  Don’t worry about putting on makeup and doing your hair, go all natural; but when it comes to your gym clothing, try changing it up with a few of my chic gym wardrobe tips!Chelsea Crockett- gym clothes

  • Don’t be afraid to wear prints.  Go all out!  Try a fun pair of printed leggings and pair them with your favorite bright colored tank.   You’ll be a style stand out!
  • If you’re wearing leggings or a type of shorts that go further up, like to your belly button, try a crop top.  It’s okay to show off your toned stomach!  Work it!
  • Layer it up!  For colder days, wear a pair of leggings under your shorts and a form fitting jacket with your tank.  Even try wearing a vest for brisk days!
  • Neon, neon, neon!  Be bright this year in the gym.  Throw away those dull colored gym clothes and swap them for some hot pinks, bright oranges, and lemon yellows.  The brighter the better.
  • Who said matching is lame?  If you have a pair of awesome Nike tennis shoes, don’t be ashamed of matching your outfit to your shoes.  You go for it girl!

Next time you hit up the gym, you’ll be a sweaty fashionista!

Hey insiders!

It’s finally bonfire weather, which means big sweaters, s’mores, and memories made with your closest friends.  The weather’s just a little chilly, allowing you to bundle up by the fire and enjoy some apple cider.  Whether you’re going to a bonfire or hosting one, you’re going to need an outfit that’s going to be on fire (not literallyWink).

If the bonfire bash you’re attending is just a small get-together with friends, putting a lot of thought into your outfit isn’t needed.  A big sweatshirt and sweatpants is all you need to keep you warm and comfy while roasting marshmallows.Chelsea Crockett - Over-Sized Sweater Look

If you’re attending more of a party/bonfire, you’ll need a fashionable, yet warm, autumn outfit to wear.  Since over-sized sweaters are a huge trend in the fashion world, they’re perfect to throw on with your favorite pair of leggings.  Pair this with your favorite boots and you’re set.  I prefer combat boots because, in addition to keeping your toes warm, they’re also stylish and edgy.  If you want to accessorize, try wearing a scarf and purse to match.  Even throw on a beanie to make your look trendier.

Of course, you can always take the even dressier route.  Denim and plaid are both two styles that are hot in Hollywood right now.  If you choose to wear either of these patterns, try rocking a long-sleeved button up.  Instead of buttoning it up, leave it open and show off your favorite shirt or V-neck.  As for pants, simply wearing jeans or leggings will work just fine.

Good luck and have fun!

Hi Insiders!

                Halloween is just around the corner!  It’s such a festive time of the year when you can dress up for a night and not be yourself.  Costumes can be expensive, time consuming, and some people don’t like to dress up; so what if you want to engage in the Halloween festivities, but don’t want to wear a costume?  I’ve got a few ideas for you to still get in the Halloween spirit without fully dressing up! Chelsea Crockett- ghost sweatshirt

                Try hitting up a store like Forever21 or even a thrift shop and searching for a graphic tee or sweatshirt with a cute pumpkin, ghost, or black cat.  Try wearing an over-sized sweatshirt with leggings and boots or a graphic tee with your favorite pair of jeans! Style it like you normally would and you’re good to go!  Another simple Halloween statement piece you could wear is a spooky pair of leggings.  Find a crazy pair with skeleton bones or tiger stripes on them.  Throw on a solid colored tee and you’ve got yourself a subtle, yet stylish costume!

                Another festive way to get ready for Halloween is with Halloween colors!  If you don’t want to wear something affiliated with Halloween try wearing orange, black or purple.  This way, you’ll be sporting the holiday colors without having to dress up!  Halloween isn’t all about dressing up, but it is part of the fun.  Don’t forget these simple tips for being festive without actually wearing a costume!

Happy Halloween!

Hey insiders! 

            Since fall’s almost here, it’s time to break out your pants and pack up your shorts.  As autumn’s cool months roll in, you’ll be seeing everything from patterned leggings to colorful jeans.

            First, I want to talk all about jeans.  Not just denim, but solids, stripes, polka dots, and lots more.  Solid colored jeans are my favorite because they’re super cute, but still extremely casual.  You can wear these to school without being too “dressed up” but still catch other’s attention with your fashionable outfitWink.  Pair them with a matching scarf and you’re set!  Check them out here:http://tiny.cc/ColoredJeans!Chelsea Crockett - Patterned Jeans

            Another popular trend that I see repeat almost every fall, is patterned jeans.  I love, love, love fun patterns and colors so you can guess I own a pair or two of these!  A few hot patterns are floral, striped, plaid, and printed.  Some are extra creative and add studs or even lace!      

            Of course, I can’t forget leggings.  One of my favorite things about fall are big, over-sized sweaters.  Wearing a cute pair of leggings is a great idea to pair with those comfy sweaters.  Just like jeans, you can find solid colored or printed leggings!  They even have galaxy and cross printed ones!     

            Hope this gives you a little help to prepare for fall!

                                                            Love, Chels
