I don’t know about you, but I love decorative maps and the vintage feel they give off!  Just the pattern itself is one of my favorites whether it be room décor, phone cases, pillows, etc.  There are tons of different map DIYs that you can easily make into the cutest things!  Especially if you like to travel, you should try out these super cute DIYs!Chelsea Crockett - Pinned Map

Like I mentioned before, for the travelers out there, this one is for you!  You’ll need to purchase wooden letters that spell out the world “travel.”  Buy them in the right size according to where you’re putting them whether it be on your wall, desk, etc.  There are different ways to actually apply the map pattern to it either with map scrapbooking paper, decoupage, etc.  You can hang your letters or get thick ones that will stand up on a table or desk.

Another DIY that’s a little simpler is purchasing a big wall map and attaching it to a foam board.  Since these maps are usually thicker and hard to simply glue it yourself, you can take it to Hobby Lobby or another craft store to do it for you.  Then, buy some pushpins and stick them on the cities that you’ve been to!  It’s a fun way to see how many places around the world/country you’ve gone to!  

Which DIY are you going to try out for yourself?  Don’t be afraid to put your own spin on things and customize it even more!

The one thing I like about fashion is all the prints, patterns, and colors you can mix and match to find your perfect look.  Recently, Chelsea Crockett - Acid Wash DressI’ve found many stores and boutiques that offer all different articles of clothing in the acid wash print, and I love it!  Here’s a little insight and what my take is on this trend!

If you’re going for a retro or grunge look, then this print is the perfect way to do it!  Chelsea Crockett - Acid Wash ShirtMy favorite way to rock this trend is with a casual dress like the one on the left.  Pair these dresses or tops with silver jewelry and a pair of booties, sandals, or even converse if you’re going for a more casual look.  If you want a subtler acid wash look, you can find t-shirt dresses and simple tees like the one on the right.

With acid wash, there are different types of color pairings that make for the cutest outfits!  Like the picture on the left, you can find white and navy or even pinks, purples, etc. like the picture above.  If you want a similar pattern but one that is less grunge, try marble print.  These two styles are very similar, but marble print is a little nicer!  Decide for yourself which one you like better!

Unique Ways to Rock Tights!

Hi Girls,

            Don’t put up your warm weather clothes just yet!  Tights are a life saver in the winter.  They are so easy to slip on with your favorite dress, shorts or skirts.  They have even become a huge style staple.  With fun prints, bright colors, and of course, your typical black and nude, tights can be worn with almost anything!  Follow my style tips on how to wear and pair your tights in the winter!Chelsea Crockett- tights

            Printed tights can be tricky to wear.  They have to be paired perfectly with just the right outfit.  Try wearing a pair of striped or polka dot tights with a solid colored dress or color block skirt and shirt duo.  Keep the colors subtle, so your outfit isn’t too over the top.  If you’re going to try a pair of colored tights, stick to one or two colors in your outfit.  Color blocking is a great way to incorporate colored tights.  For example, if you’re going to wear a pair of pink tights, try adding a complimentary color like orange in your look.

Nude, black, and white tights are essential to every girl’s closet.  These colors can be paired with any outfit…literally anything.  You can even wear your shorts in the winter thanks to tights!  For a grungier look, try rocking your favorite concert tee with high waisted shorts, black tights, and an over-sized cardigan.  If you want to go a classier route, pair any dress with black or nude tights.  You can’t go wrong!

XOXO,

Chelsea

Spring is one of the prettiest times of the year! All around you, flowers are starting to appear! Flowers are not only gorgeous and a perfect gift, but a fashion statement as well. What better time to rock some sunflowers than spring?Chelsea Crockett - Floral Necklace

If you’ve checked out the latest issues of fashion magazines, you have seen all the popular trends that involve floral jewelry. Chunky necklaces, like the one on the right, are super cute and classy.  To check out some of these necklaces, click here!  Other accessories, such as earrings and bracelets, are just as stylish. It totally fits the mood of spring!

Chelsea Crockett - Flower BraidOther accessories can be found right outside your front door :)! I know a lot of us have tumblrs, and I’ve seen this on my feed many times. Go outside and pick out some flowers, depending on how long your hair is. Then braid, or fishtail, your hair. After your hair is in a nice (or messy!) braid, put the flowers randomly throughout your hair. Look at the pictures on the left for example, so creative!

To state the most obvious trend for spring is the floral pattern. This pattern is cute on almost any article of clothing. My favorite place to see this design is on simple sundresses! They’re perfect for a day out shopping or lunch with your friends!

Happy spring! – Chels
