To me, the colors blue and white spell out classic summer style. They are crisp, clean, and fresh. Everything summer fashion should be!

  1. Sweet sundress: I love a sweet summer sundress. Especially a blue and white one! They are classy and cute. They also help keep you cool and breezy. This dress is a great piece to wear on a date.
  2. Fun romper: Rompers are great summer pieces because you don’t have to try and match shorts to a shirt! It is all one piece! I love this blue and white one because it reminds me of something you would wear for a day on the coast.
  3. Cute shorts: Blue and white striped shorts are a fun nautical summer accessory. Pair with a white shirt for a crisp, classy summer look.

What are your favorite ways to wear blue this summer?

XOXO, Chels

Where I live, spring is an awkward time between winter and summer where it is cold in the mornings, and steamy in the evenings, so it is so hard to pick out what to wear! You don’t want to be cold in the morning, but you also don’t want to be hot in the afternoon. Here are a few winter to spring transitional outfits that I have found do the trick.

  1. Shorts and a sweater: Your legs may be a little chilly in the morning, but your arms and torso are nice and cozy. Then, in the afternoon, you can shed the sweater and be perfectly comfortable!
  2. Sundress and a jean jacket: Again, your legs may be a bit chilly in the morning, but come afternoon you will be sitting pretty. I love the look of pairing spring sundresses with jean jackets. It gives a casual feel to an otherwise dressy outfit.
  3. Skinnies and an oversized sweater: If you are totally against the idea of your legs being a bit chilly in the A.M., then grab your favorite pair of ripped jeans, a short-sleeved tee, and an oversized cardigan. Once the day warms up, shed the cardigan and you will still be stylin’.

What is your favorite spring ensemble?

XOXO, Chels

Are you a preppy gal? Do you WANT to be a preppy gal? If you said yes to either of those questions, you are going to want to keep reading! Spring, to me, is a time for pastels and pretty dresses. And preppy styles, of course! Spring is full of mild weather, blooming flowers and blue skies, perfect preppy attire weather if you ask me! Here is my guide to everything essential for the springtime prepster.

  1. Sweet sundresses: I LOOOVE when the weather is warm enough to break out my sundresses! Sundresses are great for running around town doing errands, for a day out with the gals, for Church, or even date night!2c550a2f63d74ded18a84f691c2825fe
  2. Floral skirts: So feminine and so classic! After months of hiding your legs under jeans and leggings, let them free in a sweet floral skirt. Pair with a simple pastel blouse to balance the look.
  3. Pastel button-ups: Oxfords are a preppy wardrobe staple. Pretty pastel ones are a perfect addition to your springtime get-up. Experiment with patterns like gingham to mix things up! Roll the sleeves when it starts warming up, and pair with a monogrammed necklace to finish the look.
  4. Classic trench coats: Springtime = rainy days galore! How do you think those May flowers get their beautiful blooms? April showers, of course! Beat the rain and chilly mornings with a classy camel trench coat. They are so versatile and timeless, so they go with just about anything!

There you have it, the 4 pieces to add some prep to your spring wardrobe!

XOXO, Chels

The summer months are usually packed with weddings! I love weddings, because I love to dress cute and get all dolled up! Here are three sweet outfits that are perfect to wear to any wedding this summer!

  1. For a casual wedding: If the wedding you are attending is more casual, cute lace shorts and a sheer sleeveless blouse are sure to do the trick! Pair these items with a cute pair of wedge sandals and some pretty bangles to top of the look.
  2. For a dressy wedding: For this wedding, you can slip on a sweet cap sleeved, tailored dress. Choose a cheery, summer colored dress. Add in a chic statement necklace, cute pumps, and an adorable clutch!1d77cbc8afeca307ad96d8f969071d9d
  3. A mix between casual and dressy: This outfit is for the wedding that you have no clue what to wear to. If you aren’t sure whether to go dressy or casual, then a lovely lace sundress is always a safe bet! Choose a lace dress that is in a sweet summery color, because everyone always says not to wear white to a wedding! Pair this dress with a nude or brown pair of wedge sandals and a statement watch!

Be the cutest wedding guest anyone has ever seen this summer! Rock one of these adorable ensembles!

XOXO, Chels

            Hey ladies!  One of the newest and hottest trends of the season are maxi dresses and skirts.  They seemed to have spread throughout teens and slowly replaced sundresses and short skirts. Chelsea Crockett - Maxi Dresses

            Maxi dresses are super fashionable and can be dressed up or dressed down.  Even just a day at the mall is perfect for throwing on your favorite maxi dress.  You can pair your dress with heels, wedges, or, to make it a little more casual, flats.  My favorite places to shop for maxis are Francesca’s Collections, Charlotte Russe, and, of course, Forever 21.  The best thing about shopping at these places is that they’re very affordable but still extremely cute.

            Another hot trend that I’ve, yet again, seen almost everywhere is maxi skirts.  They’re very similar to maxi dresses, but you can match it with a crop top or another cute shirt!  My favorite way to wear these are with a chunky necklace and a crop top to add to my skirt! 

                                                                  Enjoy! – Chelsea

Hello lovelies!

 Memorial Day is fast approaching! Today I am going to give you some suggestions on how to look your best on this special day! Whether you are hanging out with friends, throwing a party, or just chilling with your family, I am here to make sure you are looking fab this Memorial Day.

       I don’t know if you all know this, but I am really loving the high-waisted shorts trend. They are so adorable and give you a retro look. Search for a pair here:http://tiny.cc/HighWaistedShorts!  You can pair a white or red shirt with a pair of high-waisted shorts for a casual look on Memorial Day. You could also rock an American Flag printed pair like the ones shown in the picture below. Love em! Throw on a pair of white or red sneakers or strappy sandals to complete the look. This outfit is perfect if you plan on hanging out with your friends and keeping things low key. 

Another outfit idea is to sport a sweet sundress. Sundresses are ideal when it comes to staying cool while enduring hot weather because they are so loose and flowy. If you are attending a barbecue or an outdoor event, this is your best choice. Not only are sundresses classic and adorable, they are also super comfy. I suggest wearing a sundress that is either white or is accented in patriotic colors for this occasion. Throw on a pair of classy wedge sandals and the outfit is complete! Need help picking out a dress? Check out my example below!

And finally, accessories! A sure way to spruce up any outfit is to add nail color. Paint your nails red or stripe them with white and blue! Another way to add a patriotic splash to your ensemble is to pucker up and apply bright red lipstick. Red lipstick adds character to any outfit!

Memorial Day is about honoring those who have given their lives for our country. On this day we thank the men and women who have sacrificed so much for the freedom and safety of this country. Have a blast this Memorial Day!

Love, Chels
