To me, the colors blue and white spell out classic summer style. They are crisp, clean, and fresh. Everything summer fashion should be!

  1. Sweet sundress: I love a sweet summer sundress. Especially a blue and white one! They are classy and cute. They also help keep you cool and breezy. This dress is a great piece to wear on a date.
  2. Fun romper: Rompers are great summer pieces because you don’t have to try and match shorts to a shirt! It is all one piece! I love this blue and white one because it reminds me of something you would wear for a day on the coast.
  3. Cute shorts: Blue and white striped shorts are a fun nautical summer accessory. Pair with a white shirt for a crisp, classy summer look.

What are your favorite ways to wear blue this summer?

Bandanas are making a comeback this spring and summer, and I couldn’t be more excited. There are so many timeless ways to wear bandanas, from in your hair, to around your neck, to accessorizing your handbag! Bandanas are super cheap and are sold everywhere from fancy clothing boutiques to your neighborhood Walmart, making this trend affordable AND adorable. Here are a few of my favorite looks sporting bandanas this spring and summer.

  1. In the hair: Wearing your hair up in a ponytail or a bun can get old, so why not spice it up with a bandana? It will give you a fun, western vibe and will keep your hair out of your face and off your neck on warm summer days.
  2. Around your neck: Chokers are making a comeback, and bandanas are a great way to ease yourself into the trend. They are a classic fashion statement that has been worn throughout the years. Your mom probably wore them around her neck when she was your age! They give any outfit a dash of color and a pop of style.
  3. On your handbag: Tying a simple bandana around the handle of your handbag takes it up a notch. If you carry a simple handbag and are wearing a more muted outfit, knotting a colored bandana around the handle gives your outfit some character AND a pop of color!

These simple ways to incorporate bandanas into your summer wardrobe. What are your favorite ways to wear bandanas?

I was recently in Florida and noticed a fun spring fashion trend that I and am loving – ruffles! As it warms up in Illinois where I live, I have a feeling I will see this trend start popping up here at home. My favorite thing about this trend is the whimsical and fun flare. Here are a few of my favorite ruffle tops this season

  1. Cut out sleeves: This shirt is completely unique! I love the way it has the off-the-shoulder ruffles along with the tank top style sleeves. This would look so cute half-tucked into some white skinny jeans!
  2. Bell sleeves and beyond: This shirt has it all, from babydoll style ruffles on the bottom to frilly sleeves and a lace-up back. There is so much going on, and so much to love! I feel like this is a great fun and flowey top for girls days or date nights.
  3. Off-the-shoulder: This top takes off-the-shoulder to a whole new level because it has 2 layers of ruffles! It would look great half tucked into some skinny jeans or even paired with a fun summer skirt.

If you are looking to add some feminine, fun, flirty flare to your wardrobe this spring, I think these shirts are a great place to start!

Gingham is the classic picnic print. It is a great spring and summer pattern, not just for picnicking in the park! You can find many ways to wear this classic print for every occasion. Here are a few ways I have found!

  1. On a date: Pair a fun and flirty gingham top with some simple skinnies and a cute purse. The top will give a touch of your feminine side, whereas the jeans keep it low-key.
  2. To the beach: I am obsessed with gingham swimwear! It is so vintage and fun. I happen to own this suit! I love the high-waisted bottoms that help slim my hips. And the off-the-shoulder sleeves of the top add some extra style to the ensemble.
  3. For girl’s day: A fun dress is a must for a girls day out! Grab a fun and flowy dress like the one pictured and get ready to hang with your gals. I love the ruffled shoulders and synched waist of this look. It is so girly and sweet!
  4. At the office: Keep it classy at the office by wearing a gingham shirt tucked into a skirt. I love this look because it is just a touch of preppy.
  5. Out shopping: Rompers are one of my favorite spring and summer pieces, so obviously a gingham romper makes the list! This romper is cozy, cute, and completely classy. You can take this look from shopping to picnic to date as easy as pie. So versatile!
  6. Lounging around: Keep it cozy with a pair of cotton gingham shorts. I love this pair because of the tie-waist. It really gives off a fun retro vibe, don’t you think?

Gingham is a timelessly classy look. Do you have a favorite picnic-patterned piece? Comment below!

I am a fan of comfortable fashion. That is why I am so grateful for cute sneakers! They can take any casual outfit and spruce it up. Here are 3 of my favorite casual sneakers and how I style them.

  1. Suede slip-ons: These are a trendy type of sneaker. I love that they have both a casual and chic feel to them. Pair these with some cuffed skinnies and a chunky sweater under a leather moto jacket for a effortless, casual look.
  2. Converse: There is nothing more timeless than a pair of Converse. They are incredible versitile and can be worn with just about anything!
  3. Sweet and sporty: This is part of the “athleisure” trend that I love. It combines trendy athletic pieces together to make a sporty yet cute ensemble. Wear a pair of cute athletic sneakers with jeans and a chunky sweater to create a both sporty and trendy look.

What is your favorite style of sneakers?

Turtleneck Fashion 2017

To the people who say that turtlenecks are totally not cute, I say think again! They keep you cozy warm in the chilly temps all while rocking a stylish fashion staple. Layer them under coats, over skirts, tucked into jeans, any way you want! Here are my 3 favorite ways to wear them this winter.f7fd316d4e48530f850c88dee34e8dba

  1. Edgy and chic: If you want to try an edgy or trendy look, pair a gray turtleneck sweater with a
    leather jacket, some black skinnies, and black booties. The shorter length of the leather jacket will nicely contrast with the longer hem and neck of the turtleneck, adding dimension to the outfit.
  2. Sweet and simple: A simple cable-knit sweater turtleneck is a very effortlessly classy look. Pair a simple sweater turtleneck with darker jeans and riding boots for a classic, timeless look.
  3. Fun and flirty: Get creative! Wear a turtleneck with a leather skirt and boots. Wear it layered with a plaid button-up shirt for a cute combo. Wear it with a faux fur vest to bring out your chic side. Turtlenecks are great winter pieces that can be layered and worn in so many ways, the sky is the limit.

What are your thoughts on turtlenecks? Do you think they are cute, or do you think they are a thing of the past? I’m a definite fan.

Ponchos used to be a fashion statement of the past, but recently they have made their way back into style. There are so many different variations of them, from plaid to plain to patterned! Here are my top 3 favorite ways to play up ponchos this season.

  1. Pretty in plaid: I love this preppy take on ponchos. The pattern is classy and timeless. Wear a flowey white long-sleeve blouse under your poncho, and add in some dark jeans and boots to finish off the look.
  2. Fun fringe: This might be my favorite way to wear ponchos. The fringe is so fun and flirty! Pair with simple black jeans, suede booties, and a neutral tee.images
  3. Cute and casual: Wear a simple poncho with casual jeans and boots for an effortlessly cute ensemble.

What is your favorite poncho pair?

Blanket scarves are one of the best things about winter fashion. They come in so many colors and patterns and can be worn a million different ways! Blanket scarves aren’t just meant to be scarves! Here are a few of my favorite ways to style them.

  1. With a belt: if you want to create a vest out of your scarf, put the middle of the scarf around your neck and let the long parts hang in front. Secure the scarf around your waist with a belt to keep it in place.blanket
  2. As a shawl: Wear the scarf around your shoulders as a shawl or like a poncho! It is a warm and easy way to wear a blanket scarf.
  3. The classic way: Around your neck! Sometimes I avoid wearing my blanket scarves this way because it can sometimes feel like they are suffocating me. But other times when I am freezing (the Midwest is COLD!) the chunkiness of blanket scarves is warm and welcome.
  4. Like a bandana: Tie the corners of the scarf around the back of your neck so the scarf looks sort of like a bandana. This is a really trendy, cool way to wear your scarf.

Can you think of other creative ways to wear blanket scarves?

Athleisure Style This Fall and Winter

Athleisure is an up-and-coming trend that I am loving, I have to admit. Athleisure is casual clothing like yoga pants, sweat pants, and pullovers that are designed to be worn for both exercising and pretty much everything else. So, they are athletic clothes that are stylish and functional, meaning you can wear them to the gym and then to the grocery store and look stylin’ while doing both. This trend is both comfy and trendy, so I am ready to hop on board. Here are 3 athleisure looks to try this fall and winter.

  1. Super casual: In this style we see workout leggings paired with a loose tank top layered under a simple pullover. The outfit is finished off with some slip-on sneakers. I like this look because it is effortless and really casual, but it is also comfy and can be worn out and about.0c6ead14e21331bfc652272ade7c4ab4
  2. Cute and comfy: This next look pairs workout leggings with some Hunter boots, and white long-sleeve tee layered under a cute thermal pullover and puffy vest. This style is really preppy and cute while also being comfy and practical.5939f30b8b4c520aa203b4e31589e4a5
  3. Trendy and effortless: This next look is the most complex, but is also my personal favorite. This look pairs some workout leggings with awesome textured patches on the knees, a white long-sleeve tee, and a green army jacket with an infinity scarf to top it off. The tennis shoes keep the outfit athletic while the army jacket takes it to a more “street-worthy” state.3eedbd2995cf26b1f16332744e2b1fc2

I love outfits that I can wear straight from the gym to run errands, or just to be comfy while I’m out and about! Athletic clothes can be dressed up in so many ways to make them more “outfit” ready. Who says comfy can’t also be cute?

XOXO, Chels

I recently bought a suede dress from Target, and that is when my love for suede fashion was born. There are so many different ways to wear suede this winter, whether it is in dress, skirt, jacket, handbag, or even shoe form! Suede is a sort of retro fabric that can make any outfit feel vintage and chic. Here are my favorite ways to style suede!suede

  1. Skirts: A suede skirt is so versitile. You can wear it casually with tights, flat booties, and a sweater, or you can dress it up with a felt hat and a silky blouse! I love this feminine flare on suede. The same goes for suede dresses. They are effortlessly fashionable. You can also wear it with a button-up long sleeve shirt to make an easy, cute, casual outfit.
  2. Jackets: Want a western flare? Throw on a suede jacket. This will give any outfit a sort of western vibe. It can also spruce up a simple outfit like, say, black jeans and a simple white tee.
  3. Boots: I love a good pair of suede booties. They go with just about anything and come in so many shades! Suede wedges are also a weakness of mine. They are perfect winter accessories!

What is your favorite way to wear suede this season?

Okay so faux fur vests are everywhere right now. And I have to say, I am digging it. I might, just MIGHT have bought one from the Target kid’s section the other day. Hey, it was cheaper than the adult one! No shame. Here is how to dress this trend for every occasion.

  1. Casual: Layer a plaid button-down shirt with your fur vest for a great everyday outfit! Pair with some suede booties and aviator sunglasses and you are all set.
    faux 3
  2. Semi-casual: I love long-sleeve t-shirt or tunic dresses. Paired with a fur vest? DROOL! Add in a floppy hat and chunky heel booties for a super trendy ensemble. Wear this shopping, out to lunch with friends, or to a fall party!
  3. Dressed up: If you are looking for an effortlessly chic outfit, look no further than black jeans or leather leggings, a black blouse or tunic, and a faux fur vest. Add in some black suede booties, a black leather tote, and some trendy shades to complete this night-out worthy look.

I know what you’re thinking. Where can I find an adorable faux fur vest?! I have found cute ones at TJ Maxx and Target, but they are pretty much everywhere!

Happy hunting!

Turkey day is fast approaching! I love Thanksgiving because I love food, friends, family, and also dressing cute for parties and get-togethers! When you are picking out your outfits for family Thanksgiving  and “Friendsgiving” there are a few things that I keep in mind. One thing is the colors I wear. I want them to be “fall tones” like reds, oranges, browns, golds, and tans! Here are a few suggestions!

  1. Casual: If your family or friends are more casual, then go for something cute and cozy, like a pair of jeans, comfy sweater, scarf, and beanie! Casual yet so cute.thanksgiving outfits
  2. Middle: If your family is somewehere inbetween causal and dressy, then one option is to wear some black skinnies and a nice blouse. Another is to wear dark skinnies, a sweater poncho and riding boots. Yet ANOTHER is to wear black skinnies, a cream colored blouse, faux fur vest, and nude booties! Most Thanksgiving get-togethers fall in this “middle” category.
  3. Dressy: If your event is more dressy, opt for some tights and a dress or skirt! Over the dress or skirt add in a cardigan or blazer and then layer in some statement jewelry. With the dress or skirt wear some wedge booties or booties with a little heel to them. Super cute!

Happy Thanksgiving! I am sure you will look positively beautiful.

XOXO, Chels

Your alarm clock goes off, your running late, and you have nooooo idea what to wear. I’ve been in this situation more times then I care to admit, and over time I have come up strategies to come up with something to wear in a pinch.

1.     Pick your shoes first: Shoes are a vital part of any outfit. They have an impact on how you function throughout the day. Plan your outfit around your shoes. On the weekends, wear fun shoes, and on week days, wear practical shoes! Choose shoes that make sense for your day.

2.     Lay it out: Lay your outfits out the night before. This way, you can know if the colors and patterns work and you are prepared. When you are running late in the mornings, it is a huge relief to already have your outfit ready to go.large

3.     Repeat a past outfit, with a few modifications: There is no shame to repeating an outfit! If you don’t want to totally repeat it, just make a few modifications such as switching out shoes or accessories. When you are in a rush, turn to old favorites. If it aint broke, don’t fix it!

Use these tips for when you are running behind and still want to dress to impress!

XOXO, Chels
