If you’ve been keeping up with the latest trends, then I’m sure you’ve seen the recent boom of over-the-knee boots. They’re super stylish and can be mixed and matched with so many different outfits! I wanted to give you a little insight about where you can find a pair and what different looks you can create with them!

First, let’s talk about where you can buy a pair.  Chelsea Crockett - Over the Knee BootsSince they’ve gotten so popular, you can actually find them at more stores than you think! Charlotte Russe sells a pair for only $26.99! If you’re willing to splurge a little more on your pair, check out DSW. They sell so many different boots from several different designers. If you don’t have a DSW near you, you can check online to find a pair!

Now, let’s talk about a few different outfits you can put together!  One of my favorite looks for the season is a sweater dress.  If you pair a comfy sweater dress with your knee-high boots, it’ll create the perfect casual fall outfit like the picture on the right! Another look is pairing your boots with a pair of light jeans and a comfy sweater/top! You could even rock a long cardigan with it as well. There are so many more looks that go great with knee-highs!

Do you like this new style of boot? Give me your opinion on them in the comment section below!

I always love when I find a piece of clothing that I can style in different ways with different outfits.  A simple, thin-strapped dress can go a long way when it comes to getting the most out of your purchase!  Here are different ways you can layer your dress for three different styles!

  • Over a simple tee.  Chelsea Crockett - DressLike the picture on the left, you can create the perfect street style look by pairing a simple tee with your simple dress.  Sometimes simplicity creates the most stylish looks!  Try mixing and matching with different colors, patterns, and accessories.
  • Under an oversized sweater.  Take your favorite oversized sweater and throw it on over your dress.  If it’s too long, try tying a knot at the front of your sweater to show off more of your dress.  This look is super comfy and perfect for the upcoming fall weather!
  • Under a jean/bomber jacket.  This look too is great for chilly weather!  You can pair your dress with a retro jean jacket or a floral bomber jacket, or even a leather jacket if you’re feeling extra edgy!  This is the perfect way to dress up your look.  Compliment your outfit with some wedges and a stylish purse!

Which style do you rock most often?  I think all of them are so cute! 🙂

When you outgrow your clothes, or simply get tired of them, there’s plenty of DIY options to give them another use!  Whether it be turning your old t-shirts into a quilt or an old sweater into a scarf, giving them new life is always a fun and creative craft to do when you have the time!  Here are 3 recycle DIYs for your old clothes and accessories. 🙂Chelsea Crockett - DIY Jeans

  • If you have an old pair of jeans that you don’t wear anymore, give them a makeover!  Styles of jeans change so often, so if you have a pair that are out of style, why not trim them up like the picture on the right?  All you have to do is take some chalk to mark the scallops in the right place (you can even use a small Dixie cup to get the right curves).  Then, make the cut!
  • If you have a plain old colored shirt or tank, try out reverse tie dye!  If you know how to tie die, it’s basically using bleach instead of colored dye.  Look up different styles you can make with where you put the rubber bands and go to town! 
  • Maxi skirts have gone in and out of style over the past few years.  If you have one that you never wear anymore, you can cut it up to make it into a sundress or a swimsuit cover-up.  Depending on the material, try it out for yourself!

Have you ever tried one of these before?  Let me know below how yours turns out!

How To Style Winter Whites

You know the phrase “you can’t wear white after Labor Day”? Throw that rule out the window. It is always a good day to wear white! There are so many great ways to style white that don’t require the weather to be spring or summer. From sweaters to jeans to handbags and dresses, you name it, you can wear it in white. As long as you incorporate other elements that match the outside temps, like a scarf or layers, then you are good to go. Here are 4 ways to rock winter whites.

  1. Bell-sleeve dress: I love the bohemian/retro look of bell-sleeve dresses. Because they are long-sleeved, you can wear them in the chilly weather when paired with some booties. You could even pull on a pair of nylon tights and a vest if you want to add some extra warmth to the ensemble. autumn-hippie-bell-sleeve-dress-free-femininos-people-white-embroidery-vintage-long-maxi-dresses-women-boho
  2. White handbag: White handbags look so fresh and clean. They add a clean pop of style to any ensemble, and they go with everything!i_216655328_01_20150226
  3. Distressed white jeans: The great thing about white jeans is that you can them year-round. I also love all of the outfit possibilities they bring! Plus, when you add in the distressed look, you add a little extra dimensions You can wear them with an army jacket and black booties for an edgy look, or if you want to keep it simple, pair them with a loose neutral-colored oversized sweater and brown leather booties.winter_white3
  4. White sweater: White sweaters come in all shapes and sizes. You can layer them or wear them by themselves. I love a crisp white cardigan because they are totally versatile, and I love an oversized white sweater that goes with almost any color of pants.eb80c430f7c013fe29312c0b5702fc90

How will you be wearing your winter whites?

Fourth of July is the perfect day for boating, barbeques, and celebrating the awesome country we get to call home! It’s also the perfect day for dressing up in your most stylish red, white, and blue gear. This year, I decided to put together a few looks that put a little twist on fourth of July attire.

Chelsea Crockett - Fourth of July JacketThe first look is the picture on the left. I love this statement jacket that pairs perfectly with a simple outfit! A pair of black shorts and a black tank top is all you need with this jacket. Finish it off with a cute pair of sunglasses and sandals or converse. If you start to feel the heat, roll up your sleeves like she did on the left!

Depending on where you live, it may be too chilly to wear shorts and a cute tank.Chelsea Crockett - Fourth of July Sweater You may need long sleeves or pants. Depending on what events you’re attending on the fourth will determine how festive you’re going to dress. If you’re attending a theme party, why not go all out and get a fun pair of fourth of July leggings?! If you’re just hanging out with friends, try a flag sweater like the one on the right to pair with some jean shorts.

These are just a couple looks for the upcoming holiday! What are you wearing this year? Tell me below!

The holiday season isn’t only the time for presents and delicious cookies, but for ugly Christmas sweater parties, too! You never know if your crush or secret admirer may be there :). So, apart from the “ugly sweater” part, you may want to look cute and not-so-casual on top of it. Here are some way some ways to dress up your ugly sweater!

  1. Preppy. When people ask for fashion advice, I always give the same answer. Be yourself! So, if you’re that Chelsea Crockett - Ugly Sweaterpreppy girl that’s obsessed with heels and jewelry, show it! Tuck your sweater into a high waisted skirt that matches it. Then, throw on a chunky necklace and a pair of heels or flats!
  2. Edgy. For this look, combat boots are a must. Whether they’re studded out or just plain black, rock them with a pair of ripped jeans! If you have a crop sweater, try that out, too. Then complete your look with a beanie!
  3. Casual. Maybe the party you’re going to isn’t much of a party but a more causal event such as a gift exchange with your friends! Throw on the classic leggings, tall socks, and UGGs. Finish your outfit off with an oversized Christmas sweater!
  4. Formal. If you’re planning on dressing up a little for your occasion, try out a sweater dress. They’re not only stylish but comfy as well!

Do you have a go-to ugly sweater outfit? Share with me below :)!

Love, Chels

Sweaters are the coziest thing on God’s green earth. In the cold weather months, I practically live in sweaters. One way to switch your sweaters up is to layer them with other shirts or jackets. Here are a few ways to spruce up your sweaters this fall.

  1. Poncho it up: I really like the poncho sweater look. These are so classy and simple! Pair a neutral colored poncho with a long sleeved striped shirt. To complete the look, add in a pair of leggings with boot socks and riding boots!sweater poncho
  2. Frills: I have rocked this look multiple times already this fall! I love the subtle girly flare that it gives off. If you want to add a little bit of edge to the outfit, add in a pair of black combat boots!sweater frilly
  3. Preppy: I have mentioned this trend multiple times before, but it is just too good not to bring up! Layer a button up under a sweater for a classy, preppy look. The button up can be in any pattern you please.

Now go pull on a sweater and cook cute as can be!

There are a few things that every girl needs to be a fall fashionista. They make or break your cool-weather wardrobe and ensure that you will ALWAYS have something cute to wear when the weather gets chilly. Here are 6 items that your fall wardrobe cannot do without:

  1. Wrapped sweater: This kind of sweater is perfect because it is cozy and warm and super stylish. I love to pair it with a pairtory burch selma riding boot almond of riding boots and dark skinnies!
  2. Black jeans: Black jeans are so chic and versatile. They can be worn in both casual and dressy situations. I love pairing my black skinnies with everything from a jean button up and infinity scarf to a cute flannel and combat boots.
  3. White V-neck: White V-necks go great under sweaters and army jackets! Toss on a pair of distressed skinny jeans and combat boots to complete the look.
  4. Riding boots: Ugh. I love riding boots. They are so classy and make any outfit look so put-together! I like wearing my riding boots with a white button up with the sleeves rolled just a little bit with dark skinnies and a statement watch.
  5. Flowey blouse: Everyone has their favorite flowey blouse that they wish they could wear every day! Grab one in a fall color like dark purple or crimson.
  6. Stripped shirt: Striped shirts are the perfect mix of classy, nautical, and preppy. Wear them under a sweater or army jacket or just rock em by themselves with a pair of dark skinnies!

Fall fashion is my favorite thing on the planet because I love to layer and I love boots and scarves and just everything about it! What is YOUR favorite thing about fall fashion?

           One of my favorite spring trends is pastel colors.  They’re classy, elegant, and timeless! Chelsea Crockett - Pretty Pastels

            Pastel dresses are perfect for almost any occasion.  A picnic in the park, a first date, or church on Sunday morning are all opportunities to rock your favorite spring dress.  Light pink, baby blue, or even a mint green look great with some white sandals and a bright handbag!

When you clean out your closet for the incoming seasons, don’t think too fast about tossing out your sweaters.  You can find super cute crop sweaters in different patterned or solid pastels at almost any store.  Putting together a crop sweater and a skirt or shorts is the perfect combination!

Besides sweaters and dresses, pastel handbags are stylish and just as elegant!  Although they’re a lighter shade, they can still add a pop of color to a neutral outfit.  Don’t be afraid to put a pastel shade on your nails as well!

Say good bye to winter and hello to spring!

 Prints are huge this fall and one of my favorite prints this season is polka dots!  From denim to sweaters, this print can be found in so many different materials.  Sometimes, styling polka dots can be difficult since it’s such a bold print.  I’ll give you a few tricks, tips, and ideas on how to rock your polka dot item.Chelsea Crockett- polka dots

            Whether you going for the casual or business look, polka dots will keep you looking classy!  A casual way to wear polka dots is to style a pair of polka dot denim jeans.  Usually you can find these in a variety of colors from dark denim with light denim dots to white denim with black dots.  Pair these skinny jeans with a solid colored basic tee and a pair of your favorite flats.  If it’s chilly, throw on a light sweater and you’re good to go!  You don’t want to over shadow the pants (Throwing on a fedora is an awesome accessory too).  Another fun way to wear polka dots is on a sweater.  Find a chic print sweater and tuck it into a pencil skirt.  It’s still professional, but has a fun and girly twist to it.  Chunky necklaces are always a great accessory to go with a scoop neck sweater.  Glam it up!  Polka dot is a clean, classic print that will never go out of style.  Comment below and give me your fashion ideas for styling polka dots!

Rock a Turtleneck!

Hello Ladies,

            Step over boring, old sweaters, the turtleneck is making a comeback!  This chic sweater is making headlines with new ways to rock the typical turtleneck.  Designers everywhere have been coming up with newer versions of the beloved sweater turning it into a teenagers new favorite look.  They’re not just for your grandma anymore!

            The crop top, one of the hottest trends this summer, is making its way to the winter season.  Lots of celebs have been seen wearing cropped turtleneck sweaters, which can now be found at stores like Forever21.  They are so trendy and look great with a high-waisted skirt and tights or high-waisted skinny jeans.  If you’re into the more traditional sweater, no worries!  The typical turtleneck is still in style.  Try pairing it with a quilted vest and chunky necklace.  It’s a great sweater to pair accessories with.  If you don’t like something around your neck, try a scoop neck sweater.  It’s like a turtleneck, but has an over-sized neckline.  You won’t feel so confined.  Last but not least, make sure to add a pair of riding boots to your final look.  You can’t go wrong with turtlenecks and boots this season.Chelsea Crockett- crop turtleneck

            Step out of your comfort zone and try something new with your wardrobe.  If you’re nervous about stepping out in a turtleneck, then open up a current magazine.  They’re everywhere! You’ll be the trendiest girl out and about. 

Love,

Hi Insiders,

            Pastel colors have been making a name for themselves this winter.  What once used to be only for spring is now making its way to the colder months.  Although a full on pastel outfit probably isn’t the best way to style this trend, there are a few great ways to incorporate these soft colors in your everyday winter wardrobe.

            Mint green and light pink are two of my favorite pastel colors right now.  The mint green is especially good for winter. Adding fun pastel colored accessories to your wardrobe is a great way to change things up.  Try wearing a soft colored chunky necklace with a cream or grey sweater.  Even try throwing on a light pink cross body with your winter pea coat.  Another great way to add a little pastel to your outfit is to wear a subtle pair of pastel studs.  This will add a touch of color toChelsea Crockett- pastel outfit any outfit.

            If you’re willing to be a little more daring, try a mint green dress!  Pair it with black or nude tights and a cardigan.  Even throw on a light colored sweater with cream skinny pants.  These outfits will really standout against the white winter snow!  If you’re going to be outside for a while throw on a pastel scarf, hat, or ear warmer.  There’s nothing cuter than fashionable winter gear!  If you’re wearing a pastel outfit and want to add jewelry, pearls are the way to go!  You don’t want to add bold metal jewelry to soft-toned colors.  Keep it light!  Don’t be afraid to incorporate some of your spring items into your winter wardrobe.  You never know when you’ll inspire someone else to change up their look!

Love,

            Chelsea
