Hip hip hooray for ankle boot season! Ankle boots are a breed of boots that look best with a specific style of jeans: skinny jeans. Knee boots can be paired with a plethora of jean styles, but skinny jeans work best with our beloved ankle booties. Here are my tips on how to wear/style ankle booties this season.

  1. Flat and fabulous: Most of the ankle booties I own have a bit of a heal to them, but I am really digging the flat bottomed bootie this season! It is subtle and simple. Pair flat ankle booties with skinnies, a patterned button up shirt, and a leather jacket for a stylish, easy ensemble.skinnies
  2. Roll it, don’t scrunch it: Rather than shoving the hem of jeans that are too long into your boots, roll the cuffs! This is a cute alternative to letting them bunch or awkwardly pop out of the tops of your boots. If your favorite jeans have a bit of a flare to them at the bottom, just roll ‘em up!
  3. Be aware of your hemline: This goes for all booties. As a rule of thumb, make sure the hem of your jeans hit about an inch above your ankle. This ensures your jeans are at the perfect length to show of those cute booties!

What are your favorite ways to style ankle booties this season?

Look out tall boots! Booties are all the rage this fall and winter.  Most booties are cut right at the ankle and can be dressed up or down for any occasion.  The tricky part is knowing how to style and wear them correctly.  Read up and figure out how to style your booties this season!Chelsea Crockett- ankle booties

There are three ways to rock booties: with a dress or skirt, tucked into tight skinnies or leggings, or cuffed above the ankle with just about any straight-leg or skinny pant. Since the boots don’t go very far up your leg, it’s important to wear tight jeans with them so that they don’t begin to bunch up at the ankle.  If your jeans are loser at the bottom, cuff them so that they sit right above the beginning of the boot.  This way, you won’t have to worry about your jeans coming out of the top of your booties!

Leather, suede, flat, or heeled, booties are the perfect essential for any wardrobe! Comment below how you rock these boots!

XOXO,

When I think of fall I imagine big sweaters, pumpkin lattes, bonfires, and of course, football games!  Dressing for a football game can be tough with the fall weather.  It can be hot while the sun is out, but get cooler as the night goes on.  Keep on reading as I break down my favorite outfit for football season!Chelsea Crockett- quilted vest

It’s important not to dress too light or too heavy.  Instead, try wearing layers that can be taken on or off depending on the weather.  During September and October, I prefer to wear skinny jeans and my school spirit tee!  If you’re wearing a long sleeve tee, try pairing it with a quilted vest to add a little extra style to your outfit.  If you’re wearing a tank or short sleeve shirt, bring along an oversized sweater or flannel to throw on over your shirt.  Investing in a black and white flannel will help take your fashion game to a new level.  Adding a flannel to a spirit shirt adds depth to your outfit, plus the black and white matches everything!

Once your outfit is complete, pick out a pair of sandals or boots (depending on the weather), add some accessories, you can even wear a chunky necklace to dress up your look, and head to the game!  No matter what age you are, football season is always a wonderful time of the year!

XOXO,

Chelsea

Just because you’re not in the military doesn’t mean you can’t rock their look!  Army green and camo have become some of the biggest fashion trends this year and are so easy to incorporate into any look for any occasion.  Check out some of my favorite ways to style army inspired clothing!Chelsea Crockett- dress with army jacket

Army green and camo skinnies are a style staple for any wardrobe.  When wearing these types of pants, keep your shirt a solid color.  You don’t want too much going on in your outfit.  It’s also important not to take the “army” look too far.  If you are wearing camo, stay away from combat boots.  Instead try flats or a tall boot.  This way your outfit won’t be taken too literal.

An army jacket is a great way to make a dress more casual.  Try throwing on an army jacket with a plain black or cream dress for the perfect fall outfit.  It even looks great with skirts and skinny jeans.  Tyr replacing your normal everyday jacket with an army inspired one.  They’re causal and versatile enough to match almost anything!

It’s always fun to try new trends and to change up your normal wardrobe with fresh and trendy inspirations!  Try incorporating the army trend into your wardrobe this fall!

XOXO,

Chels

If you can make life a little easier, then why wouldn’t you?!  Life hacks are all about turning something difficult into something simple!  Check out the hacks below, because why wouldn’t you want a simpler life??

  1. Only have a pair of flared jeans to tuck into your boots? Roll your jeans and stuff them into a pair of tall socks! Once tucked into your boots, you’d never know they weren’t skinny jeans!
  2. Remove deodorant marks with pantyhose or dryer sheets!
  3. Hate the green marks your rings leave behind on your fingers? Before wearing them, paint the inside of each ring with clear nail polish to avoid green stains!Chelsea Crockett- clear nail polish rings
  4. Make smoothies fast by freezing fruits and veggies in single serving bags! Just poor the bag, plus some ice and juice, and you’ve got yourself a smoothie in no time!
  5. When packing, wrap your shoes in a shower cap to keep them from rubbing against your clothing. Also, place one end of a necklace through a straw to avoid it from tangling.
  6. Cut swimming noodles and place them in your boots to keep them upright!
  7. Run your mascara brush under hot water for easier and smoother application.

I hope I made your life a little easier!

Love you all,

Chelsea

A basic white tee is an item that every girl must have in their closet.  It’s a classic!  This tee can be dressed up or down and can be worn with almost anything!  So what exactly are the perfect ways to style a white tee?  Check it out!Chelsea Crockett- white tee with blazer

  • If you need to look a bit more professional, try it with a blazer!  It’s a classic when paired with slacks or skinnies and flats or heels.  There are so many possibilities!
  • Throw it on with skinny jeans or a pair of shorts.  Tuck it in or leave it out.
  • Nothing looks sleeker than a basic white tee.  Dress it up with jewelry, fun shoes, sun glasses, and more!
  • Tuck it in to a maxi or skater skirt!  It’s the perfect way to dress down a rather dressy skirt.  This look is perfect for shopping or hitting downtown.
  • Make it grungy with army!  Pair your white tee with an army coat and a beanie.  It’s the ultimate skater look.
  • Go crazy with prints!  Add a printed pair of pants or a skirt to liven up your look.  Since the tee is so basic, it’s totally acceptable to grab a crazy print to go with it.

If you don’t have a basic white tee, go get one…NOW!  It’s great to have a v-neck and scoop neck style to change it up every once in a while.  They are usually inexpensive and can be found almost anywhere!  Comment below and tell me how you rocked your basic white tee!

Love you all!

How To Tuck Non-Skinny Jeans into Boots

Have you ever had the cutest pair of jeans and wanted to wear them with boots, but you couldn’t because the jeans weren’t skinny jeans and wouldn’t fit into your boots? This problem can easily be solved! With this simple trick, you can take your favorite pair of bell-bottom or wide-legged pants and turn them into skinny jeans! All you will need is your favorite pair of jeans, a smashing pair of boots, and some high socks.

How to tuck them:

1. Pull on your favorite pair of jeans. The tighter around the thighs and knees the better!

2. Roll up the legs of your jeans into a nice cuff. the cuff should come up about 5 inches. After you have cuffed the jeans, pull the cuffs tight around your legs. There should be some extra material once you have pulled the cuffs tight, so you need to take the extra and fold it over the tightened cuffs. Make sure to hold all of this tight, because that is what is making your jeans into skinny jeans.

3. Now that you have the cuffs pulled tight and the extra material folded over it and tightened, put on your high socks and pull them up over the folded cuffs to hold them in place. Now slip on your boots and make sure that your socks are not sticking out and that your jeans are not bunching. If neither of those things are happening, then you are totally good to go!

Now that you know how to transform any pair of jeans into skinny jeans, the possibilities are endless!
