Repair Hacks to Make Your Shoes Look Good as New

When I love a certain pair of shoes, I hate seeing them get worn out day after day.  There’s always that one favorite pair that you have to say goodbye to after so many wears!  Since I want to get the most out of my shoes and definitely get my money’s worth, here are a few shoe repair hacks that will make your shoes look good as new!

  • Use toothpaste and a toothbrush to restore whiteness to your tennis shoes.  Don’t underestimate what a little toothpaste can do!  Scrub any parts of your shoe that need some shining.Chelsea Crockett - Shoe Hack
  • Cover any scratches with nail polish.  Whatever the color of your shoe may be, apply some nail polish to camouflage any noticeable marks and scratches.  Let it fully dry before wearing them!
  • If you have a pair of suede shoes, use a nail file to get rid of any stains or scratches.  I had never heard of this hack before, but it really works!  Lightly rub the nail file against the suede to eliminate any annoying stains or scratches.
  • Believe it or not, you can get rid of scratches on leather with a little moisturizer.  If you ever wear leather, then you know it can get beat up pretty easily!  Adding a dab of moisturizer will loosen up the leather and make any scratches disappear.   

Try a hack or two out for yourself!  They really work!

One of my favorite things about high school was going all out for our Friday night football games.  Some of my best memories of my four years were made at our school’s stadium cheering on the team!  Chelsea Crockett - Game Day OutfitWith college, the football game days only get bigger and better, especially if you go to a big school.  Here is a little guide I put together if you need some help picking out an outfit for your next game day!

One of my favorite things that I’ve seen girls wear on game day is oversized jerseys.  I know some schools sell them in a dress style to pair with accessories and booties!  If your jersey isn’t long enough to style as a dress, rock it with a ripped pair of white jeans like the picture on the left.  You can also determine how casual you want to be by wearing wedged booties or a pair of sneakers! 

Incorporating your team’s colors into your outfit is obviously a must.  Although some colleges dress up more than others, you can always accessorize using colored necklaces, hats, etc.  Since suede is big this fall, pairing an off-the-shoulder shirt with a button- up suede skirt is so cute!  Another piece of clothing you can pair your outfit with is a flannel in your school’s colors.  You can either substitute it for a jacket or tie it around your waste!

I hope you enjoy this year’s football season!

Fall 2016 Off-the-Shoulder Style

Off-the-shoulder style is one of my favorite looks.  It gives off an elegant, feminine vibe that can sometimes be hard to pull off with a simple piece of clothing.  But with off-the-shoulder shirts and dresses, you can put together a classy outfit in seconds! 

One of my favorite materials for fall is suede, so pairing it with this style is super cute!  Chelsea Crockett - Suede DressThe dress on the left is a good example of this.  Pairing it with wedged booties, a choker, and a bold lip creates a perfect dressy outfit for fall.  Maybe you have a dinner date or an event that you have to dress up for.  This look is elegant, classy, and can be dressed up or dressed down!

If you want a more casual off-the-shoulder look for fall, another fave outfit of mine is a denim, long-sleeved shirt.  Denim is another one of my favorite fall materials, whether it be a denim jacket, skirt, etc.  It’s an easy color to pair with black jeans and a cute hat!

Apart from suede dresses and denim tops, there are so many different off-the-shoulder looks you can come up with!  A lot of stores will be selling fall-inspired tops so keep an eye out! 🙂

I recently bought a suede dress from Target, and that is when my love for suede fashion was born. There are so many different ways to wear suede this winter, whether it is in dress, skirt, jacket, handbag, or even shoe form! Suede is a sort of retro fabric that can make any outfit feel vintage and chic. Here are my favorite ways to style suede!suede

  1. Skirts: A suede skirt is so versitile. You can wear it casually with tights, flat booties, and a sweater, or you can dress it up with a felt hat and a silky blouse! I love this feminine flare on suede. The same goes for suede dresses. They are effortlessly fashionable. You can also wear it with a button-up long sleeve shirt to make an easy, cute, casual outfit.
  2. Jackets: Want a western flare? Throw on a suede jacket. This will give any outfit a sort of western vibe. It can also spruce up a simple outfit like, say, black jeans and a simple white tee.
  3. Boots: I love a good pair of suede booties. They go with just about anything and come in so many shades! Suede wedges are also a weakness of mine. They are perfect winter accessories!

What is your favorite way to wear suede this season?

XOXO, Chels
