Fall weather, tailgates, game day outfits… Football season is finally in full swing!  One of my favorite things about game days is all the different outfits that girls come up with. Recently, I’ve seen so many different DIY shirts that are super cute and so easy to make!  Here are two different DIY game day shirts!

  • Tube-Top T-Shirt. First, cut vertically along the side of the shirt so the sleeves are cut off.  After making these cuts, you should have just two rectangles of material.  Turn the rectangles inside out and sew them together along the vertical sides.  Put on the shirt and gather any excess fabric along the sides to make it tighter.  You’re then going to resew along the vertical lines to create your desired fit.  Sewing it together the first time will help you keep your rectangles aligned.  Then, finish your top by cutting off any excess material on the sides!Chelsea Crockett - DIY College Shirt
  • High-neck Tank Top T-Shirt.  This DIY is pretty easy.  Pick out a shirt that you don’t mind cutting up a bit.  Like the picture on the right, cut the bottom off of the shirt as high as you would like, possibly as a high-low shirt or a crop-top!  Then for the next part, I suggest drawing two lines before you cut the sleeves to make sure they’re even.  Then make the cuts and you’re good to go!  (P.S. Don’t clip the collar!)

Which style are you going to try and make?  If you have two shirts, you might as well try both! 🙂

Modest but Hottest Trends of the Summer

In our society, modesty is something that’s considered “weird” or “non-fashionable.”  So many girls think it’s overrated and a forgotten way of the past.  But there are actually so many fashionable looks and outfits that you can rock all summer long!  After all, modest is hottest, right? 🙂      

  • One-piece swimsuits.  If you haven’t already seen the hundreds of girls rocking one pieces on the beach or at the pool, then I’m here to tell you that they’ve made a major comeback!  Almost every brand that offers swimsuits now sells stylish one pieces that are fashionable and trendy yet comfortable and modest!
  • Midi-skirts.  I know for me, it’s hard to find a skirt that fits me just right yet isn’t super short.  Midi-skirts are the perfect exception!  Chelsea Crockett - Collared ShirtYou can dress them up or dress them down with heels, wedges, accessories, etc.  If you find the right shirt, you can create the perfect trendy look!   
  • Long Overalls.  Like I’ve mentioned in plenty other articles, overalls are back!  You can buy them in the classic jean material or find them in different colors anywhere from black to light pink.  They give off a retro look that’s both modest and super trendy! 
  • Collared Shirts.  Now I’m not saying you have to rock a buttoned-up polo, but loose fitting collared shirts are so in and so cute!  Pair them with jeans and wedges to create the perfect beachy look.  Take the outfit on the right for example!   

Which modest trend is your favorite?  I love all of them!  Let me know which one you rock the most below!

The rustic theme and aesthetic has become a popular trend when it comes to decorating. Items and décor that give off an antique feel are popping up in almost every home or décor store. If you’re not into the whole rustic theme, you can make this DIY sleeker and more fashionable, whatever you prefer!

First off, you’ll need to find a spot in your room that gives you enough space to put your rack. Second, you’ll need to pick out your rack! Chelsea Crockett - Clothing RackThere are plenty to choose from based on color, texture, etc. Some you can even buy with the “worn” look that gives it more of an antique feel. Although most of your bedrooms probably have closets, you can make your own rack for decoration! You can even choose what type of clothing you’ll hang on it. The example on the left uses it for jackets and coats… whatever you want to do!

Another fun part of creating the “look” for your rack is what type of hangers you use. I would prefer matching my hangers with the theme or colors of my room. Your rack will look much more put together when you make it look like a piece of your room. I suggest storing your shoes or purses under the rack where there’s extra room. It keeps your clothing organized and makes your room cuter, too :)!

Let me know how you design yours!

Chelsea Crockett - Tank TopHey girlies!  Rocking your own style is one of the best things about fashion.  You can mix and match until you find a perfect look that fits you.  One of my favorite things I’ve discovered is how to use an ordinary piece of clothing and make it your own.  The easiest way to do so is with an everyday tank top or t-shirt.

A new trend I see almost every where is high waisted shorts.  Tucking your tank into these is super casual, cute, and quick!  If you have a looser shirt and don’t think it will look good tucked in, leave it out and gather it together in the front.  After that, make a small tie on either the right or left side of your shirt.  This still shows off your shorts and gives your look a more creative feel.  Another way to wear your tank is simply letting it hang straight down.  If you’re just lounging around or watching a movie with friends, this keeps it comfy and casual.  You also don’t have to worry about constantly keeping it tucked in.  These three styles are easy to do and will look great wherever you are this summer!

Love, Chels

Hi Lovelies,

            Metallic colors have made a splash this year!  They are so easy to incorporate into your wardrobe, especially silver and gold.  These metallics are the new black!  Check out how to add a hint of metallic into your outfits this year.Chelsea Crockett- metallic outfit

            Adding a metallic item to any outfit will make it shine!  You can start simple by painting you nails a metallic hue or throwing on a metallic sling handbag as a shiny accessory.  If you really want to dive into the metallic trend, start off by pairing a metallic tee, blouse, or tank in any color you prefer, with black or white skinny jeans.  If you’re wearing a light colored metallic, aim for light colored pants and dark colored pants if you’re wearing a dark colored metallic.  If you really want to go all out, try a pair of metallic pants or a dress.  Metallic pants have been seen all over the runways by the hottest designers.  One of my favorite looks is gold pants with a black or cream top.  Add gold jewelry and a solid colored pair of matte shoes to finish off your look.  If you want to wear a metallic dress, like a silver dress for example, keep the accessories to a minimum.  The dress is enough of a staple in itself!

            I hope you try the metallic trend this year!  Comment below if you’ve found a new, fun way to rock a metallic colored item.  Enjoy!
