During the colder months, you’ll most likely find me wearing leggings every day of the week.  They’re so comfortable and can be dressed up or dressed down for almost any occasion.  Although they’re more known for lounging around in, you can pair them with different articles of clothing to dress up your outfits and be just as comfy! 🙂

  • Oversized Sweater and Boots.  Chelsea Crockett - Leggings and a SweaterI’m sure you could already guess that oversized sweaters are going to be back in full swing this fall!  Rock a simple pair of black leggings and a pair of your favorite boots with a big sweater.  This is one of the comfiest outfits ever and it still looks like you put yourself together!
  • Graphic Tee and Sneakers.  I’m a huge fan of the street style look, and this outfit represents it perfectly.  Old rock tees or athletic brand tees with a pair of leggings and Adidas sneakers can still be dressed up or down depending on the occasion!  It’s such a cute and edgy look.
  • Long Poncho.  There was a time when ponchos went out of style, but now they’re back in action, especially with the cold months quickly approaching!  These can definitely be dressed up with a pair of heeled booties and the right accessories.  How cute is that?

Which style are you going to try out?  They’re all so comfy yet fashionable! 🙂

Shopping is one of my favorite pastimes.  Whether it’s at my favorite clothing boutiques, makeup stores, or even online, I like to get the most out of my time and especially my money!  There are lots of different tips for becoming a better shopper, whether it’s waiting for the right deals or seasonal sales.  Here are some useful tips for you to know next time you go shopping!

  • Tax-Free Weekends.  Depending on the state you live in, this weekend is one of the biggest shopping weekends of the year!  Especially on big purchases, you can get things like iPhones, laptops, etc. for so much cheaper than you would on a regular weekend!
  • Seasonal Sales.  Chelsea Crockett - Ulta Rewards ProgramThese sales are some of the biggest and best deals you can possibly find.  Anything from back-to-school sales to Black Friday deals, you can find almost any store with lots of ways to save!
  • Coupons.  You might think these are super old fashioned, but every little bit of money saved counts!  As surprising as it is, a lot of stores still offer different coupons online and right when you walk in the store.  So, keep an eye out!
  • Rewards Programs.  Almost every one of my favorite stores has a rewards program that gives me exclusive discounts every time I come in.  Most of them are free, so take advantage of them and sign up!

Whether you shop at Sephora or not, you can’t deny a good steal when you find one!  Getting new makeup is always fun, but getting the same makeup at a cheaper price?  Even better!  I recently discovered several different money hacks you can use for yourself at Sephora.  Here they are so you can get the best bang for your buck just like I do!

  • Follow Sephora on Facebook.  Chelsea Crockett - Sephora MakeupExclusively through their Facebook, Sephora offers you discounts and giveaways that a ton of people aren’t even aware of!
  • Take a few samples of products you’ve been dying to try.  Sephora allows you to take up to three samples home with you so you can test a product before spending a bunch of money on the real deal!  You can also get some free makeup :).
  • Join their rewards program.  This one may be obvious, but if you’re a frequent Sephora shopper, you can get so many awesome discounts and savings.  Why not right?
  • Free shipping is a big deal if you order online frequently.  You can sign up for the Sephora Flash Subscription and get free, 2-day shipping for the whole year.  And it’s only $10!
  • If you buy something that goes on sale a week later, you can take it into the store to get the price adjusted within two weeks of the purchase.  You might as well save every penny you can!

I hope you take advantage of these hacks and get some makeup to add to your collection! 🙂

5 Steps to Thrifting the Perfect Look

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!

Trend Alert: Overalls!

Overalls are a trend that have been considered “out” for a long time!  But recently, they’ve made a huge comeback anywhere from Forever21 to Express to Nordstrom.  You may be picturing the typical long, jean overalls but there are actually many different styles and colors that are much more popular! 

Chelsea Crockett - OverallsFirst, you’ll need to decide if you want long or short overalls.  There’s also the option of getting overalls with a skirt if you want to get a nicer pair!  Some pairs will have the typical pockets on the front and back of the overalls but others, like the one on the left, will have a sleeker look without pockets that you can dress up.

After you decide the style you want, you’ll have to pick a color.  I’m sure there are all different colors to choose from, but some colors I’ve seen a lot more than others.  Jean is obviously the most popular and the color you’ll see most in stores!  It matches with everything and can be a casual look for a day out with friends!  As for other colors, other popular ones include black, white, light pink, or army green.  Get one of these colors to mix it up!

Are you going to get a pair?  Let me know below which style is your favorite!

What Color Prom Dress Looks Best on You?

Whether it’s your first prom or your third, it never gets any less exciting!  I know I’m not the only one who loves shopping for the perfect prom dress.  Figuring out the right style, color, and all around look that I’m searching for can be tough, but once I find the right one, it’s worth it!  If you need a place to start, here are some pointers on which color dress would look best on you!

Chelsea Crockett - Prom DressIf you have dark skin, any pastel or bright shade will most likely look good!  Try colors on the warmer end of the spectrum such as pinks, yellows, purples, etc.  These will bring out the warmness in your skin tone and highlight your skin’s glow. 

If you have tan/olive skin, focus on complimenting your undertones.  Olive skinned girls are lucky because almost any color will look good!  I suggest a deep green or red, maybe even a burgundy shade like the dress on the left.  Especially if you have dark hair, try one of these colors!  If you want to really highlight your skin tone, try a bright pink that will make you look extra tan!

For the fair skinned ladies out there, pay attention to the undertone of your skin, whether it’s warmer or cooler toned.  If you have naturally rosy cheeks and a warmer skin tone, try earthy shades.  These will look beautiful on you!  If you have cooler undertones, look into purples, pinks, and blues!

I hope this narrows down your search options so finding the perfect prom dress can be a little easier!

Most of us don’t like to admit it, but the majority of us are professional procrastinators.  Whether it be homework, chores, or a lot of other things, I always push dreadful tasks off until I’m forced to do them!  As far as Christmas shopping goes, I can be the same way.  I came up with a few last-minute DIY Christmas gifts that may come in handy!

  • I always use crafty picture DIYs to my advantage. Chelsea Crockett - DIY Choker There are so many different things you can come up with or even take from Pinterest!  Whether it be decorating a picture frame or making a picture wall art, if you’re crafty you should definitely give it a try! 
  • Put together a gift card wallet.  You could either buy a pricier wallet and fill it with a few $5 gift cards to their favorite places or buy a cheaper wallet and fill it with $10 or $15 gift cards!
  • FOOD!  Who said you can’t give food as a gift?  You may want to pair it with a little something, but baking up a holiday treat or two or even buying something from a cute cupcake shop would be totally fine in my book :)!
  • DIY jewelry may sound hard to make, but it’s actually pretty simple!  There are tons of different ways to make homemade chokers, bracelets, etc. like the ones on the right!

There has been a recent trend of new businesses and companies sending out monthly boxes filled with sample products and goodies.  Companies such as Faithbox and FabFitFun are two examples of trendy businesses that use their packages to get the word out for certain products.  Stitch Fix is a company similar to this that was recently brought to my attention!

The main point of these boxes is to find things that match your personal style and have fun while doing it!  Here’s how it works.  First, you take a short style quiz to figure out which accessories and pieces of clothing you’ll like best.  Stitch Fix ships the box with 5 either accessories or pieces of clothing right to your door!  Everything sent to you revolves around your style and budget.  You may be thinking “how can I afford this?”  The best part about this is you only pay for what you want to keep and send back what you don’t!  That way you can test out what fits your style and what doesn’t.  It’s like your own personal stylist!Chelsea Crockett - Stitch Fix Box

As far as when you receive each box, you can choose to get them regularly or whenever you please!  After each box, you can give feedback so your next box is even more personalized to what you like.  There is a $20 styling fee but is only added in to your final order!  Another plus is that each item you receive is fairly priced and something not everyone is going to have.  And if you like all 5 items, you get a 25% discount!

Try it out and let me know what you think! 🙂

XOXO – Chelsea
