When you think about your summer wardrobe, I’m sure it consists of lots of shorts, dresses, skirts, and swimsuits!  And what do all of these things have in common?  Your legs will show!  I always like to make sure my legs are in tip-top shape during the warm months, especially swimsuit season.  Here is a step-by-step guide to prepare your legs for the summer!

Step #1: Exfoliate.  Chelsea Crockett - ExfoliaterThis is the first step because it gets rid of any dead or damaged skin which prepares the perfect base for hydrating and shaving.  It evens out the skin and leaves behind what’s healthy and new instead of what’s dead and old.  And an even better tip?  Use an exfoliator with sea salt!    

Step #2: Hydrate.  Since exfoliating consists of scrubbing and roughing up your skin, you’ll need to follow it with a little hydration!  Look for lotions that have nourishing and replenishing properties, not just those that smell good.  This should thoroughly moisturize any dry skin cells and prepare them for a smooth, even shave!   

Step #3: Shave.  This step is pretty self-explanatory.  We all know that shaving makes our legs feel and look super smooth, which is perfect for shorts weather!

Step #4: Hydrate again/tan up.  Shaving, just like exfoliating, can sometimes dry out your skin.  I suggest hydrating again!  Then after you lotion-up, try a self-tanner that will leave your legs with a bronze glow!

I hope this guide helps you out this summer!

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! 🙂

Fourth of July is the perfect day for boating, barbeques, and celebrating the awesome country we get to call home! It’s also the perfect day for dressing up in your most stylish red, white, and blue gear. This year, I decided to put together a few looks that put a little twist on fourth of July attire.

Chelsea Crockett - Fourth of July JacketThe first look is the picture on the left. I love this statement jacket that pairs perfectly with a simple outfit! A pair of black shorts and a black tank top is all you need with this jacket. Finish it off with a cute pair of sunglasses and sandals or converse. If you start to feel the heat, roll up your sleeves like she did on the left!

Depending on where you live, it may be too chilly to wear shorts and a cute tank.Chelsea Crockett - Fourth of July Sweater You may need long sleeves or pants. Depending on what events you’re attending on the fourth will determine how festive you’re going to dress. If you’re attending a theme party, why not go all out and get a fun pair of fourth of July leggings?! If you’re just hanging out with friends, try a flag sweater like the one on the right to pair with some jean shorts.

These are just a couple looks for the upcoming holiday! What are you wearing this year? Tell me below!

Ways to Rock Tie-Dye

Thanks to festivals and bohemian style, tie-dye is the coolest new print to add to your summer wardrobe!  It’s so easy to wear and can be dressed up or down depending on how you wear it! It’s important to wear tie-dye the right way, or it can be over-powering!  Check out my guide to the perfect tie-dye ensemble!Chelsea Crockett- tie dye shorts

When wearing tie-dye, keeping it subtle is key.  Try going for tie-dye that only involves two colors (for example: navy/white, orange/pink, grey/black).  More than 2 colors can be a bit overbearing!  A tie-dye sun dress paired with an indie-inspired hat and sandals is the perfect boho look!  I also love the flowy shorts and skirts, which have TOTALLY come back into style, with a solid v-neck or tank!

If you just want to use tie-dye as an accessory rather that an outfit item, try a thick head band!  Wear the headband with your hair in a messy, relaxed bun, or down and wavy for a fun touch!  This look can be paired with any casual outfit!

Comment your favorite colors of tie-dye and how you rock the fun print below!

XOXO,

Chelsea

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

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

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

If you’re like me, you like a good DIY! Today I am going to show you my top 3 favorite cutoff denim short DIYs.

My first denim DIY is the bleached cutoffs! These are super easy and hipster-ish. I prefer to do this DIY with high waisted shorts. I went to Goodwill and picked up a pair of old high-waisted jeans, brought them home, and cut them into shorts! If you want the shorts to be rolled, then cut them a little longer so you can roll them up. Take your shorts and put them in a laundry tub. Make sure to wear rubber gloves during this next step! Then, mix 2 parts water and 1 part liquid bleach into your bucket. When you put the shorts in the water, only put the bottoms of the shorts in because the bleach will climb up them. Check on the shorts every hour or so and take them out when you have the desired color! Make sure to rinse the shorts out really well and then put them in the washer. Viola!

Chelsea Crockett cutoffsThe second DIY is lace cutoffs! First, find a pair of jeans you want to cut into shorts. Next, cut a triangle shaped hole in the outside seam of each leg of the shorts. Next, cut Triangles a bit larger than the holes you cut in the shorts out of the lace. Pin the triangles of lace to your shorts over the holes that you cut. Then sew the lace on, and Viola! Easy peasy! Desktop79

 

Now go rock your fresh new DIYs!

Ladies, there is a trend out and about this time of year that I just love. It is the “high-waisted shorts with tights” trend! There are so many ways to pull off this trend. I’ll explain a few to you below!

 Dressy: If you want to dress this trend up a bit, you have a few options. First, you start with your favorite pair of dark-wash high-waisters. Then, grab a pair of dark colored tights, such as black or maroon, and slip them on! To dress the ensemble up, grab a pair of black suede wedges or black lace up wedges. For a top, choose a dark colored shirt and pair it with a black leather jacket or blazer and neutral scarf.cf865878da3be66162a43b600b90f780

Casual: If you are out and about and want to rock this style, go for it! Pair a dark pair of tights with your favorite light-wash pair of high waisted shorts and a band tee, or a tee from your favorite sports team! Pair with a jean or leather jacket and your favorite statement scarf! Toss on a pair of converse to complete the outfit.212b41477e4b7347065d1eb35e81cc8e

 Don’t know how to make high-waisted shorts? Go buy a pair of jeans from Goodwill, take a scissors, and chop chop away! You can leave the bottoms frayed or you can cuff them whatever you prefer.

Hey insiders!  It’s almost summertime and your wardrobe wouldn’t be complete without a cute, trendy pair of high waisted shorts.  High waisted shorts are a new trend among teens and the hottest celebrities.  You can buy them in stores or simply make them yourself!  They come in a variety of colors and patterns to match almost any look.
            A few of my favorite stores to find high waisted shorts are Forever 21, Charlotte Russe, Pacsun, and also Love Culture.  At any of these stores you can find super cute summer colors and patterns for a great price.  You can also look at online stores such as sammydress.com and romwe.com.

As far as making them yourself, figuring out how isn’t hard at all.  First things first, you need to purchase a pair of high waisted jeans or Capri pants, unless you have an old pair that you don’t mind cutting up.  Make sure you try them on first to make sure they fit you just right!  To start, lay them down on a table or flat surface and line the two legs up. After that, take a writing utensil and mark where Chelsea Crockett - High Waisted Shortsyou want to make your cut.  Make sure the two marks are even on both legs.  You wouldn’t want to have uneven shorts!  Next, take a pair of scissors and cut along your markings.  It’s as simple as that!  You can even make them your own by adding your own touch such as studs, holes, rhinestones, or lace.   To make holes, you can take a few pieces of sandpaper and rub them on the area where you want the hole.  It may take a while, but eventually the threads will start to come apart to give you a cute edgy look.
