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!

5 Reasons to Go Through Sorority Recruitment

If you’re going off to college, especially at a big school, then I’m sure you’ve heard all the hype about sorority rush.  I questioned it at first, until I heard all of the awesome experiences my friends had within their sorority.  I thought I’d tell you some of the great things you can get out of a sorority if you give it a chance!

  • You meet your best friends.  Chelsea Crockett - Sorority PictureWhether you’re at a big school or a small school, you’re going to meet some people regardless.  You will be spending a lot of time with these girls, and you’ll get so close to them over your four years!
  • You can get more involved.  Most sororities have an executive board that you can serve on to make a difference in your chapter.  You can be president of your whole sorority or something less intense like a chair position!
  • You get to have social events.  Formals, exchanges, date parties, BBQs, you name it!  There are so many fun events throughout each semester for you to meet people, dress up, and have fun!
  • You’ll get more out of your comfort zone.  Going to college as it is will make you more outgoing, but joining a sorority will make you meet new people and help shape you as a whole!
  • You get to volunteer for amazing causes.  Most, if not all, sororities have a certain philanthropy they support and raise money for.  There are so many ways to volunteer throughout your chapter to support these causes!

So what do you think?  Are you going to give it a try?  A lot of my friends have and they say it’s one of their greatest decisions ever!

If you’re still in high school, you may be unfamiliar with the term “formal.”  Formals are kind of like the college version of a homecoming dance put on by a fraternity or sorority!  If you’re new to the college world and need some advice on an upcoming spring formal, here are some tips and pointers!

  • You don’t have to have a date in order to go to formal. Chelsea Crockett - Romper More girls go solo than you think.  Get dressed up, grab a group of friends, and go have fun by yourself!
  • Although you should dress up, dresses aren’t a must.  You can rock a fancy romper and heels (such as the picture on the right) or a stylish jumpsuit.  Unlike high school homecomings, you’ll see tight and loose dresses, dresses and rompers, wedges and heels, etc.
  • Don’t be afraid to hit the dance floor.  Unlike high school dances where it can sometimes be awkward to dance, most people will be dancing at formal!  No one cares what you look like or whether or not you have a date.  Get out of your chairs and dance like crazy!
  • You can make plans before and after just like you did for high school dances.  Get ready with your friends beforehand, make dinner reservations, and host an afterparty! 
  • Formals are a lot more laid back, and a lot less stressful, than prom and homecoming.  Like I said, you don’t have to bring a date or make a day full of plans surrounding the event.  Just simply have fun! 

Have fun at your formal and make lots and lots of memories! 🙂

Love, Chelsea

8 Essentials Every College Girl Needs

As a freshman in my first semester of college, I’ve realized there are certain things that I can’t live without and things that I hadn’t even thought about buying or bringing with me.  Whether it be food, school supplies, etc., here are some college essentials that you should add to your list as well!

  • A shower caddy.  If you’re living in a community style dorm, this is a must-have!  It makes it so much easier to take all of your things to and from the shower.
  • Microwaveable food.  Dining halls are great but sometimes you need something quick and easy.  Stack up on some microwaveable mac and cheese for those time crunch days.
  • But also healthy food!  Microwaveable meals are great but not always the healthiest option.  Grab some apples, bananas, etc. too!
  • Sorority rush essentials.  If you’re going through recruitment, make sure you have all of the necessities such as mints, a hair brush, lip gloss, etc.
  • Coffee, coffee, coffee!  I’m telling you, coffee will be your lifesaver!  It’s essential for those late nights in the library or 8 am classes.
  • To-go coffee cups.  Along with coffee, you’ll need some cute to-go coffee cups!  Target sells packages of them for a great price (they’re also super cute!).Chelsea Crockett - Planners
  • A stylish planner.  Taking multiple classes different days of the week can get confusing, especially when you have tons of due dates and exams!  Purchase a planner like one of the ones above to organize your assignments, meetings, events, etc.
  • A prayer partner.  On a more serious note, having a friend that you can talk and pray with is extremely important.  College can be tough and sometimes you need a trustworthy friend to be there for you.

If you check these off your list, you’ll be set!
