The velvet trend is back and better than ever for the upcoming seasons of 2017!  Velvet is one of my favorite materials because it’s so soft and comfy to rock for both casual and formal occasions.  Here’s how you can hop on the velvet bandwagon this season, too!

Chelsea Crockett - Velvet Shoes

Not only is velvet back, but there’salso a new trend within the new trend! Crushed velvet seems to be the new style that’s just a little different than regular velvet.  The material is more so in patches and more “crushed” together instead of a smoother velvet. You can wear a button-down shirt with distressed jeans for the comfy look or a crushed velvet evening dress to put a spin on your outfit!

Another way to rock velvet is with your shoes!  They’re unique and give a vintage, classy allure to any outfit. Velvet heels or boots with a block heel can complete any look! Slides, high heels, sneakers, and even slippers are appearing in this holiday-centric fabric.

If you’re looking for a homecoming or formal dress, check out a velvet look whether it be a dress, romper, or jumpsuit!  It’s a perfect way to put a spin on any ordinary outfit while being stylish at the same time! 🙂 Check out what you can do with velvet and how you can make it your own with your outfits!

The season of homecoming and formal is well among us!  Maybe you’re attending your high school’s homecoming or your college sorority’s formal.  Either way, you’ll need an amazing dress to make your night the best it can be!  Here are a few dress trends to check out this homecoming season. 🙂

  • Statement Sleeves. This season is all about fun, statement sleeves!  Dresses with off-the-shoulder sleeves are a good way to spice up any simple dress.  Keep an eye out for lace, sheer, or other materials that make for the perfect sleeves to add something extra to your dress.
  • Velvet is HUGE right now in the fashion world! Chelsea Crockett - Maxi Romper It’s a timeless trend that’s gotten the spotlight recently.  Velvet dresses are classy, feminine, and put a twist on any plain dress.
  • Maxi Romper. Like the picture on the right, there are so many fashionable maxi rompers you can dress up to create the perfect homecoming/formal outfit!  I love these because they’re different from other basic dresses and rompers (it’s like a two-in-one!).
  • Cut Outs. These have been in the past couple of years and they’re still in!  Especially no backs, these can spice up any dress you’re looking for!

Which trend are you going to rock this year?  Tell me in the comment section below!

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?

XOXO, Chels

What to Wear to an Outdoor Concert

Summertime is the best time, filled with sun, friends, and lots of outdoor concerts to attend!  If you’ve ever been to an outdoor concert, then you know just how fun they can be.  There are several guidelines you should follow when picking out your outfit, considering how hot and stuffy outdoor concerts usually are!  Here’s a little help. 🙂

Chelsea Crockett - Concert OutfitUnlike music festivals, you won’t have a long day filled with tons of different concerts and events.  In this case, you don’t have to consider the heat and sun as much as you would at a day-long festival.  Usually outdoor amphitheater concerts are at night, so you shouldn’t be too hot and sweaty!  First, you’ll need to consider the main look you’re going for.  I suggest a cute romper or high waisted shorts and a nice shirt/tank.  The picture on the left is a perfect example!  A jean skirt, with an off-the-shoulder shirt and double braids is so cute!Chelsea Crockett - Concert Outfit

Although you won’t go as “all out” as you would for a full music festival, you can still accessorize just as much.  Depending on the weather, you might even have to bring along a jacket for when the sun goes down!  The picture on the right is a super cute look too if you want to be a little more casual.

What are you wearing next time you go to an outdoor concert?  Let me know below, I may copy your look for this summer! 🙂

Easter is one of my favorite holidays.  I get to see all of my family, eat a delicious homemade meal, and celebrate Jesus’s resurrection!  Every year, I pick out a dress to wear to church and family get-togethers on Easter Sunday.Chelsea Crockett - Overalls  If you’re wondering what to wear, here’s a little guide on what’s “in” and what’s “out” this year!

Casual: If you’re going for a more casual look, then you have lots of options to choose from!  One look I’ve really been into lately is short overalls with a tee underneath.  Some overalls have a skirt instead of shorts which is a little dressier for the occasion!  Dress it up with jewelry and a casual pair of wedges or sandals.  You can also go with a casual patterned romper or a cute shirt and white pants.

Dressy:  If you’re planning on dressing up for Easter, which is what I normally do, sometimes less is more!  A simple pastel or white sundress can be dressed up with heels or wedges, accessories, and maybe a cute hat!  Focus on finding a dress that’s a pretty spring color such as light pink, white, or pastel purple!  You could even try out a fancy romper or a patterned two-piece set. 

What are you thinking about wearing for Easter Sunday?  Let me know below!  Maybe I’ll get some ideas for myself. 🙂

Happy Easter! – Chelsea

When I think of summer style, I think of white. White is such a bright, crisp, clean color and can give off a beachy, breezy vibe. Here are a few of my favorite white summer pieces to wear in the summer.

  1. LWD: Or, little white dress! I love sundresses. You will see me wearing a dress way more than shorts during the summer. They are a great way to look cute and stay cool at the same time! I am loving the halter style of top this season, so for this blog I am choosing to show you a halter style sundress. So cute and can be worn in both casual and dressy situations!white1
  2. Romper: A white romper is playful and so pretty. This romper also has the halter style top! If you don’t want to wear a sundress but shorts and a tank don’t sound appealing, then rompers are a perfect middle ground. So cute and so comfy.
  3. Off the shoulder top: To me, off the shoulder tops are so fun and flirty. They are also cool and breezy so they keep you from getting too toasty. I love this effortless, easy going look.

I love summer whites, don’t you?

XOXO, Chels

We’ve all watched rompers, high waisted shorts, and crop tops come in style… and now there’s a trend that combines all three. Co-Ordinates, or “Co-Ords” for short, are totally the new craze!

Co-Ords are patterned sets that look like a romper but the top and bottom aren’t connected. So if you want, you can mix and match if you have multiple sets. I didn’t even know how popular they were until I looked them up myself! The store Topshop carries some of the cutest sets with some of the prettiest designs and patterns.Chelsea Crockett - Co Ord Set

Chelsea Crockett - Co Ord SetThe fun thing about co-ords is that you really can dress them up or dress them down, depending on the pattern and style. The set on the right is more casual, so you can throw it on before you hit the mall or a movie with friends! But the set on the left you might wear to a nice dinner or a fancy date with a pair of heels or wedges! The possibilities are endless. (If they go together, you can even mix and match different colors and patterns!)

If you want to check them out, you can find them throughout your local mall or online!

Jumpsuits and Rompers 101

Jumpsuits and rompers are the ultimate all-in-one outfit.  They’re so easy to slide on and run out the door.  With spring approaching, we’ll be seeing a lot more rompers everywhere, but it’s important to find the right romper or jumpsuit for your body type!  Keep on reading to find out which is best for you!Chelsea Crockett- jumper

Jumpers trend to be longer in the leg, especially if they are wide or flare legged.  If you have long legs and a short torso, then the jumper is for you!  It will make your legs look longer and since there is more material in the leg area, you won’t find extra fabric bunched up around your stomach.  If you’re petite, stick with the normal romper

When it comes to picking a print or color, stick to solids!  Since a romper or jumper is basically pants and shirt put together, prints can be overwhelming.  A solid color can be easily pared with any kind of accessory and are perfect for casual or dressy events.  Before you leave the house, don’t forget your shoes!  If you’re wearing a jumper, wedges or heels are most ideal.  It’ll help lengthen the leg and balance out the outfit.  Stick to flats or sandals if you decide to rock a romper

I hope you’ll find the perfect one piece outfit for this spring or summer!

Shorts and a shirt combined…talk about the easiest outfit ever!  The romper came about as an easier alternative to a dress.  It’s easy to throw on and you never have to worry about someone seeing up it or the wind picking it up like a dress!  It’s the hottest, easiest, most stylish outfit choice on the market!

There are 2 different kinds of rompers: short and long.  Short rompers look like shorts and long rompers look like pants.  Both have either a long sleeve or short sleeve top attached.  The best part about rompers is that they can be dressed up or down and worn in any season.  For a casual look, try throwing on a simple romper with a pair of sandals, basic biker jacket, and a few accessories.  You can even wear a fedora to spice up your look a bit!  This look can be worn to almost anything…except something fancy of course!  They are also perfect as swimsuit cover-ups!Chelsea Crockett- pant romper  If you’re looking to dress up your romper, go for a romper with embellishments or details, or a simple black.  If you choose a short romper, pair it with your favorite heels, a statement necklace, a blazer, and a clutch.  If you choose to wear a long romper, ditch the blazer and opt for extra accessories.  Both looks are so chic and are perfect for a night out!

Whether you’re going to the beach, joining your girlfriends for lunch, or hitting the town, a romper is the perfect route to go!  You’ll never have to worry about matching your shirt and pants ever again!

XOXO,

Chelsea

            As for me, a simple, casual outfit will do the job.  One of the latest trends is high waisted shorts.  They’re definitely my favorite thing to throw on during the summer because they’re casual, quick, and go with almost anything!  As I talked about in another one of my posts, you can buy or even make a pair!  It’s super easy and fun to add your own touch!

        Chelsea Crockett - Romper    Another idea that is cute and comfy is a romper.  A floral or bright romper is fun to throw on with some flats and go shopping or out to eat!  It’s pretty casual but you can dress it up with heels and accessories.  You can find one that suits you here:http://tiny.cc/Womens_Romper!

            If you’re having a bad hair day, there’s a simple solution.  Fedora and sun hats are classy, elegant, and a quick start to a fun outfit.  You can wear them to the pool or to the park.  Dress them up with a sundress or dress them down with a nice pair of shorts and a cute top.  Want to check them out?  Click here!
