I know for a fact that jeans will never go out of style.  They’re timeless and can be worn for almost any occasion.  The best part about jeans is that you can match them with pretty much anything!  There are three trendy jean styles that are making their way into the fashion world this fall that you should try rocking yourself!

  • Tasseled Ends.  Chelsea Crockett - Embroidered JeansI saw a pair of these when I was out shopping and I fell in love!  They usually cut off at the capri length and finish off with tasseled threads.  They’re so cute and perfect for a casual day out with friends!
  • Mom Jeans.  The 90s are back in action ladies!  Mom jeans are usually high waisted and can be rolled at the bottom to complete the look.  You can pair these with a retro top to really rock the 90s style!
  • Slit Hems.  If you want a pair of simple jeans that have a little twist to them, buy a pair of these!  They look like normal jeans until about halfway down your calf where the hems on the side split.  They’re super cute and allow you to switch it up!  (Look at the above picture for example!)
  • Embroidered Denim.  I love embroidered shirts and pants.  They’re both vintage and fashionable.  You can find jeans with embroidered flowers and other designs at certain boutiques or online!

Which look is your favorite?  Let me know below!  I think mine are the tasseled ends, how fun are those?!

Thrifting is the perfect pastime.  It’s cheap, fun, and can bring out your creative side if you let it!  Many of your favorite looks can be recreated if you simply go to a thrift store with an open mind and a little creativity!  Here are 5 steps to master the art of thrifting. 🙂

  1. Be openminded. Chelsea Crockett - DIY High Waisted Shorts You will come across many interesting outfits, shirts, shoes, etc. (to say the least).  Maybe try on a few things that you think you’d never ever wear.  It may turn out to be your new favorite shirt!
  2. Be creative.  Think about how you can take one piece of clothing and turn it into a completely new creation.  There are so many DIY looks that you can create right in your room!  (If you don’t have a creative bone in your body, Pinterest is the perfect place to find some inspiration!)
  3. Think retro.  One of my favorite looks is DIY high waisted shorts.  Take a fun pair of mom jeans and cut them to the perfect length.  Roll the ends to create the perfect 70’s look like the picture on the right!  My friends and I have all done this and they’re so comfy!
  4. Go with friends.  Everything is more fun when you’re with your girls right?  Grab some of your friends and make a day out of it.  A second opinion always helps when shopping!
  5. Don’t go with a game plan.  If you go with a specific piece of clothing in mind, you might pass by tons of other things that may end up creating the perfect look!

What’s your go-to shop to go thrifting at?  Let me know below!

There is a swimwear trend that has been coming up through the ranks the last few years and is finally making waves. It is high-waisted swimwear! I have a few suits in this style and am a huge fan because they slim my waist and disguise my thighs. Here are a few of my favorite high-waisted suits!

  1. Scalloped: Scalloped swimwear is so cute. It is feminine yet simple. I also think it has a classiness to it.
  2. Girly: Bring on the fun prints and ruffles! I love the peplum style of this top because it hides any belly that we may be uncomfortable showing. The bottoms are also a great statement piece, I love the colorful print!
  3. Unique: I love suits that are different from the norm. This top is just that! It is long sleeved, which is not typically what swim tops are. If you are going to a beach that is a little chilly or clowdy, then this is a great option. It is also a good option if you are trying to avoid sunburn. I love the retro flare of the stripes paired with the simple sleek black bottoms.

I am totally hopping on board with the high-waisted suit trend, are you?

XOXO, Chels

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!

Adidas has always been known as a sporty, workout brand offering lots of different exercise attire. Recently, people on Tumblr, Instagram, and other social medias have broadcasted the fashionable, street-style side of Adidas. Most either know one side or the other, so here’s a little insight on both sides of the brand!

Let’s start with the side Adidas is known for. Ever since 1949, Adidas has been creating workout and exercise clothing for decades. If you waChelsea Crockett - Adidasnt a pair of shoes, Adidas has anything from soccer to basketball to running shoes. As far as apparel goes, tanks, leggings, shorts, etc. are patterned and unique.

This is a perfect example of “street style” which is comfy but trendy. (What’s better than that?)

Rock the Retro Look

Vintage & retro hairstyles are coming back with a bang! When I see pictures of women in the ‘60s, ‘70s, and ‘80s I am always so jealous of their hair. They wore it in such cool ways! Luckily, lots of those styles are making a comeback! Here are a few of my favorite retro hair styles and how to style them.

  1. Tied-up updoo: If you have ever seen pictures of “Rosie the Riveter” then you know where this style came from! I love it because it is a quick, easy, adorable way to pull your hair up. It is also great for second-day hair that is looking a bit greasy. The scarf hides it! Here is how to do it: Work some texturizing spray through your hair, then curl it with a large barreled iron. Spritz with hair spray, then pin random curls into a messy bun. Tie a pretty head scarf retro 4around your head to finish it off!
  2. Retro waves: When I see this hair style I think of knee-high white leather boots and some giant bug-eyed sunglasses! Or I think of Daphne from Scooby Doo. Either one works ;). Here is how to do this look: Curl your hair with hot rollers, then use dry shampoo at your crown for some volume. Tease it a bit at the crown, and then finish with a spritz of hair spray, not too much that it looks sticky or rough!
  3. Victory rolls: This hair style makes me want to put on a poodle skirt and go to the drive-in! So retro and so classic. It gives a great ‘40s vibe and would look absolutely adorable with a full skirt, lace dress, or silky blouse. Here is how to create this look: Lightly spray texturizing spray to give your hair some grip, and then blow dry it. Part your hair down the middle, then twist one side back and pin it into place at the nape of your neck. Then repeat with the opposite side. Connect the ends, twist them back into a soft bun, and finish with a light mist of hair spray.

These styles are great for a day when you are feeling like you want to mix things up. Plus, they are all easy to do! Which is YOUR favorite retro look?

XOXO, Chels

Retro Bell Sleeves

Are you into the retro look? Do you like rocking clothes that have a throwback vibe? Then you will love the bell-sleeve trend. The wide sleeves give a free-spirited vibe to the pieces. The sleeves sort of remind me of pictures I have seen of disco dancers back in the ‘70s! Here is how to rock the throwback look today.

  1. Casual: If you want to casually incorporate bell-sleeves into your daily wardrobe, opt for a simple, loose-fitting tunic type shirt with subtle bell-sleeves. Pair this with distressed jeans for a subtle, casual look.bell
  2. Semi-casual: If you are going more for a “dinner with friends” or a cute date look, opt for a more dressy blouse-type shirt with bell-sleeves paired with simple skinny dress pants or solid jeans. Add in a felt hat or booties for accessories.
  3. Dressy: If you are looking to dress things up, pair a bell-sleeve dress with thights and boots. Now this outfit isnt TOO dressy, so it can be used in semi-casual situations as well. I love the combo of tights and booties with the dress. Totally classy, totally trendy, and totally cute! Toss on a felt hat to add some personality to the outfit.

What do you think of bell-sleeves? Will you wear the trend?

XOXO, Chels
