Adidas has always been known as a sporty, workout brand offering lots of different exercise attire. Recently, people on Tumblr, Instagram, and other social medias have broadcasted the fashionable, street-style side of Adidas. Most either know one side or the other, so here’s a little insight on both sides of the brand!

Let’s start with the side Adidas is known for. Ever since 1949, Adidas has been creating workout and exercise clothing for decades. If you waChelsea Crockett - Adidasnt a pair of shoes, Adidas has anything from soccer to basketball to running shoes. As far as apparel goes, tanks, leggings, shorts, etc. are patterned and unique.

Considering the fashionable side of Adidas, the picture above and to the left are perfect examples of stylish Adidas attire! Retro sweatshirts, t-shirts, and especially jackets are the new trend. They even offer retro-styled shoes that are spreading throughout social media. Pacsun and other stores even sell shirts and other clothing with the Adidas logo, so check it out! This is a perfect example of “street style” which is comfy but trendy. (What’s better than that?)

Let me know below which side of the Adidas brand you like better!

Why I Went Out for School Sports

This year I decided to go out for my school’s tennis team, and it was such a great decision. I was on the dance team my freshmen year and loved it, but because of my crazy schedule I had to stop. I loved being on the dance team because of all the friendships I made, the fun dances we got to do, the events and competitions we got to perform at, and because it was great exercise! I missed being on a school sport, so I joined tennis. Here are 3 reasons I decided to go out for tennis this year!

  1. It was my senior year and I wanted to try something new. Senior year is your last hoorah before real life kicks in, so take advantage of it!

  2. Being on a team keeps me motivated and exercising often. I love the feeling of hearing my friends and teammates cheering me on when I make a good serve or a good save during my matches. It is so exhilarating! Also, because we practice or have matches almost every day, I am constantly exercising. I get to stay in shape AND hang out with my friends, all at the same time!
  3. Getting involved in high school is so rewarding and making new friends is so fun. Being on a school sports team gives you a sense of pride. Wherever you go for matches or competitions you get to represent your school! I also love all of the new friends I have made through tennis. Plus, I am on the team with my sister! Bonus!

I have loved being on my school’s sports teams throughout my high school experience. If you have never been on one or are contemplating it, I highly recommend it! You will not regret being involved in school. These are memories you will take with you the rest of your life!

Sporty Looks for Your Favorite Spring Games

Since hockey season is nearing to an end and baseball is just about to begin, you’ll need some tips on how to look sporty yet stylish for each and every game! Sporting events are some of my favorite things to attend with my friends or family, and to look cute while doing so! There are so many different ensembles of outfits to create, here are a few of my faves :)!Chelsea Crockett - Sports Outfit

Your simplest and easiest way to go is a casual outfit. Just throw on a pair of leggings and your favorite team’s oversized jersey or t-shirt. As for adding a little more to your outfit, throw in a cute headband or bandana that matches your team’s colors. Accessorize with some fun colored beads or socks!

For a less casual look, the outfit on the right is so so cute! Whatever your team’s colors might be, find a matching flannel that goes with them. Wear your jersey and tie your flannel around your waist! In my opinion, the ripped boyfriend jeans complete the look. So… find yourself a pair to rock with some retro converse. I think even the sunglasses are a stylish touch!

If you’re going for a dressy look, it probably isn’t too easy to come up with something formal for a sporting event… but hopefully I can help with that! If you have a skater skirt, tuck in your shirt or jersey and rock it with a pair of booties. If you have time to shop around before game day, look for a jersey dress. They’re so cute but sometime tough to find!

What’s your go-to sports outfit? Lemme know insiders!

Chelsea Crockett - Maroon and White OutfitFootball is in full swing at our high school and between the loud cheers and touchdowns, we all want to be looking super cute for the games!  Of course, it’s fun to wear school t-shirts or sweatshirts… but why not have a little fun and dress up a bit? I have to let you in on a little secret! Whenever I’m struggling to decide what to wear, I search Pinterest!  Here’s the catch: If your school colors are maroon and white, go onto Pinterest and search “maroon casual outfit.” Or if your school colors are gold and blue, then search “gold and blue casual outfit.” For something as simple as that, it’s amazing what you will find!

Recently, I searched my school colors and found everything from colored patterned scarves to stylish colored jeans and sweaters.  The outfits are fashionable and trendy, but not too over-the-top. Remember, it is just a football game!  They help me to reinvent some old clothes that I might have in my closet as well.  Sometimes my friends and I get together and switch out our clothes. It’s fun to borrow, share, and design new looks together with the help of Pinterest.  With all of that said, let me know how you use Pinterest to help style your look!

Summer is usually described as weeks of free time and kicking back and relaxing. But, when it actually rolls around, we sometimes find ourselves super busy and full of tasks or activities. Between sports, getting ready for school, chores, work, or anything else cluttering up your summer, you are going to need a way to manage all your time to get the jobs done!

Don’t worry, it’s actually not as hard as you think! Step one is pretty easy. Sit down and grab a pencil and a piece of paper. Write down everything you need to get done. Then, make a list numbering each task with #1 being the most important and your last number being the one that can wait the longest to be completed. This will help you get your priorities straight!Chelsea Crockett - Priorites

Step two. Don’t be afraid to purchase a calendar/planner! This way you will never over-plan yourself. Have you ever planned a sleepover with friends but realize you have practice early the next morning? Writing out your plans for each day will help you avoid certain situations like this. Especially with smartphones nowadays, you can type out different reminders for your highest priority plans so you won’t overdo yourself!

Lastly, remember that you can say “no!” You don’t have to agree to do everything. If you feel yourself starting to get stressed, remember that no one’s making your schedule cluttered but you! Open your schedule and feel your anxiety levels decrease!

Best wishes! – Chels

Hey everyone!

Running is a perfect exercise to get fit and stay fit.  Most teens like to stay active, feel healthy, and be in shape.  Most sports, whether it be basketball, soccer, etc., require some running in order to be a good player.  Other sports, such as cross country, track, etc., require almost only running.  Here are some helpful tips that you can use when training for your season or for simply getting into shape!Chelsea Crockett - Running Article

First off, being hydrated is a necessity for almost everything.  Whenever you go for a run, make sure you have water by your side.  Especially after your run, be sure to drink lots of water to replenish any nutrients you may’ve used up during your exercise.  H2O should start to become your “best friend” while trainingJ.

Second, purchase a pair of good running shoes.  Having good arch support and cushion in your shoes is much needed for any runner.  You can make sure you purchase the right pair of shoes by getting fitted at a local running/sports store.

Lastly, always have a buddy to run with.  You and your friend should run where there are lots of people so you’re never alone.  You want to avoid high traffic areas.  Safety should be your #1 concern when it comes to running!  Before and after your run, be sure to stretch out your muscles to keep from getting any injuries.  Oh yeah….I almost forgot…to help your run go quickly, put on your headphones and listen to your favorite music!  Before you know it, your workout is over!

Good luck!

Ah vacation!  It’s the perfect time to relax, eat large amounts of food, lie in the sun for hours, and become the definition of a “beach bum”.  Even though you’re taking a break from real life, this doesn’t mean you should take a break from your mind and body.  Of course, this is all part of the fun, but it’s important to get up and moving during your vacation!  Check out a few simple ways to exercise while on vacation!Chelsea Crockett- hiking

  • Jog or walk the beach in the morning! The beautiful scenery will keep you wanting more, while each step in the sand works your calf muscles. Plus, if you get sweaty just jump into the water!
  • If you’re near the mountains, go for a hike or a long bike ride!
  • Try picking up a new sport like surfing, paddle boarding, or kayaking.
  • Who said you shouldn’t exercise your mind on vacation?! Try putting your phone away and reading a book or playing a game of Sudoku.
  • Find the nearest water park or amusement park! You won’t even realize how much you’re walking!
  • Hit your hotel or resort gym. Try out all of their fancy workout equipment!

Next time you take a vacation, challenge yourself to be as active as possible.  You’ll come back from vacation feeling refreshed!

Love,

Chelsea

Be a Good Sport!

Odds are, some of you beautiful Insiders play sports. Sometimes, sports can bring out the best in you! Then again, sometimes they can bring out the worst. When you are really into the game, you may become really aggressive and not really think about what you are doing or saying. Today I am going to fill you in on the importance of being a good sport and how influential being a good sport can be.

When I say being a good sport, I mean that you are respectful of other players. When you are a good sport you are not only showing them that you are a mature person, but you are also witnessing for Jesus! You are showing them love, just like Jesus showed YOU love. When the ref makes a call that you do not agree with or you are accused of something that you do not believe you did, do not blow up and get angry. I know it is hard! Just chelsea crockett good sportsmanshiptry and keep your cool. If you are calm and approach the ref and tell him that you think the call was incorrect, they will be a lot more willing to listen to you if you are calm and respectful. They might even side with you and realize that it was the wrong call! Also, if you are being scouted for scholarships, you always want to be mindful of who is watching you and act accordingly. If a scout sees you act like a crazy lady and freak out at the refs or other players, they will not be impressed with you or your character. You also want to always be respectful to your coach and the parents of your teammates. I am sure you are all lovely young lassies and are prefect angels, but I just wanted to make these points to refresh them in your noggins! 

Keep your cool darlings!

XOXO, Chels

             Hey everybody!  With Father’s Day right around the corner, you’ll need to start thinking about gift ideas!  You can always go the easy route, but I’m going to give you a few ideas to make his gift meaningful and creative this year!Chelsea Crockett - Tie Cake

             One way to impress your dad is baking him sweets or a cake.  All over the internet, you can find cute ideas for cakes such as in the shape of a tie or a sports themed cake.  Cake pops and cupcakes are also a fun way to show off your baking skills.

           Chelsea Crockett - Grilling Accessories If your dad’s in to grilling, you can purchase grilling accessories such as grill spatulas or a thermometer.  If you’re interested in purchasing these, click here!  If he’s in to cooking, try buying him cook books with yummy recipes that he can make for the whole family!

            Instead of being the chef, maybe your father is a sports fanatic!  Buying him his favorite team’s jersey is a good, and not too expensive, way to make him smile.  If you have a higher budget, purchase a ticket or two to a baseball, football, or hockey game (whatever your old man prefersWink).

            Besides buying him a present, making him a homemade card is heartfelt and just as meaningful.  Be sure to write inside the card and tell your dad just how much he means to you.  He would probably appreciate that gift more than anything else!  So get creative and show your love for your dad this holiday!
