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! 🙂

Shoes are my secret obsession.  I love, love, love getting a new pair of sandals or sneakers and rocking them with the perfect outfit to go along with them!  There are a few styles that are going to be extremely “in” this summer.  Here are a few so you can get a head start on your summer shoe wardrobe!

  • Ankle-wrap sandals. Chelsea Crockett - Wrap Heels I love this trend!  You can get a pair that wrap around once or several times.  It can be subtle like the picture on the right or thick ribbon that starts to wrap up your leg.  They’re all so cute and stylish!
  • Patterned heels and wedges.  I’m a pattern type of girl so bright, fun patterned shoes are my favorite.  Especially just a simple pattern that will make your outfit pop is better than nothing at all! 🙂
  • Off-white.  Although white is a timeless color that’ll never go out of style, buy an off-white pair of sandals or wedges for this summer.  Neutral colors are always good to have on hand!
  • Platform heels.  Platform heels can be tricky to walk in at times but they’re so cute!  Purchase a pair to add to your shoe wardrobe to spice up your outfits this summer!
  • Shoes with some shine.  This can be anywhere from a metallic pair of sneakers or some shiny gold heels.  These will guarantee to give your overall outfit a little pop!

Which style is your favorite?  Let me know below! 🙂

When it comes to dressing up nice, my shoes are usually my favorite part of my outfit to pick out, especially when I’m wearing a fun pair of heels or wedges!  Although I love rocking a simple pair of heels when I can, most of my pairs are pretty boring.  I found 3 different DIY ways you can give your heels a stylish makeover! 🙂Chelsea Crockett - Ribbon Heels

  • Use pretty ribbon that you can wrap around your ankle.  Depending on the color of your heels, pick a color that compliments them.  I suggest even using the same color ribbon as your heels to make it look more professionally done, instead of mix-match.  Since it’s hard to explain without showing you an example, you can go off the picture on the right.  Simply wrap it once around your heel, then around your ankle, and finish it off with a bow!
  • Glue on glitter on the bottom part of your heels.  Use a superglue paste to apply to the underneath of your heels and sprinkle on glitter until they’re completely covered.  Let them dry and then show em’ off!  Chelsea Crockett - Jewel Heels
  • As for thicker heels, superglue on various jewels and beads like the picture on the left.  If you purchase a super strong glue to assure that the jewels will stay put, then you shouldn’t have to worry about them falling off!  I suggest using different colors and shapes while still complimenting the original pair of heels. 

Which DIY is your favorite?  Let me know below which one you are going to try out for yourself!

Summer, warm weather, and days in the sun are almost here… But first, graduation! With me being a senior this year, I’m graduating and moving on to bigger and better things. Graduation is a big deal, and I obviously want to look my best for the big day. So, I came up with a little guide on how to style your outfit for graduation day!Chelsea Crockett - Graduation Dress

First comes first, know your colors. Since it’s spring, see which shades look best with your hair color and skin tone. Use those to your advantage! I love floral patterns during the spring. If you do too, you can always find the pattern you like with which colors go best with you! Not only is floral good for spring, but patterns are always fun to play around with! Don’t be too limited when it comes to patterns and materials. Stripes, lace, chevron, etc. may turn out to be your fave trend!

As far as guidelines go, make sure your dress isn’t too short or too low-cut. Although your gown will be covering up the majority of it, people will still see it for pictures and before and after the ceremony. For your shoes, I would suggest a stylish pair of wedges or casual heels. I prefer wedges because they’re more comfortable and easier to walk in (which is a good idea for walking to get your diploma!).

I hope this helped you get an idea of what outfit you’ll wear for your big day!

XOXO – Chelsea

If you’re like me, then you’re an avid shoe lover!  Besides diamonds, shoes are a girl’s best friend.  It doesn’t matter where you’re from or where you’re visiting, you can always spark up conversation about shoes with any girl!  Although we all share this same connection, the most popular type of shoe differs between countries.  Fashion, although a sort of universal language, can be very, very different. Chelsea Crockett- clogs

Ever owned a pair of clogs, Uggs, Hunters, or cowboy boots?  These are serious staples for different countries.  Clogs from Sweden, Uggs from Australia, Hunter rain boots from England, and cowboy boots from Texas have made their way around the world!  From the runway to the street, they’ve become some of the hottest trends.  College and high school campuses are flooded with Hunter Wellies on a rainy day, country concerts are full of girls rocking their favorite pair of cowboy boots, and thanks to the reinvention of the clog, throwing on a pair of clog wedges is all the rage in the summer.  Another fun international shoe is the moccasin from Canada!  Love throwing on a pair of these with a boho top of an easy and cute outfit look!

Crazy to think that some of your everyday shoes originated thousands of miles away!  The world has some amazing ideas!

XOXO,

Chelsea

How to Dress for a Summer Wedding!

Ahhhh wedding bliss!  Don’t you just love watching two people who are madly in love with each other getting married?!  It’s such a beautiful thing!  With the summer months finally here, you may notice a lot of weddings coming up.  So how exactly should you dress for a summer wedding?  I’ve got all the “dos” and “don’ts”.

The number one rule when dressing for a wedding is that the bride wears white, not you!  Stay away from any white dresses, skirts, or pants you may be thinking about wearing.  It’s the brides color!  Also, remember that a wedding is a family affair.  Do not wear a dress that is too short or tight, heels that you cannot walk in, or anything revealing.Chelsea Crockett- summer wedding guest dresses

When dressing for a summer wedding, it’s okay to play around with color!  Try wearing a bright floral or hot pink dress!  I always recommend a sundress for a wedding, because it’s cute and classy.  Also, try a pair of wedges.  They are easy to walk in and the most comfortable kind of heels.  You will want these once you start dancing the night away!  To finish your look, grab a clutch and throw on some lipstick!

Hope your summer is filled with beautiful weddings!

XOXO,

Chelsea

Whether you’re graduating middle school, high school, or college, graduation is right around the corner!  With so many eyes on you and hundreds of pictures being taken, it’s important to have the right outfit.  It’s time to find the perfect graduation look!

Graduation is a very important event, therefore go for a dress.  When shopping for a dress, avoid anything strapless.  Go for a dress with straps and one you will be comfortable in.  Graduation Chelsea Crockett- graduation dressceremonies usually last a long time, so you do not want to constantly be pulling up your dress, especially in front of your principals and family members.  Since the weather will be transitioning from spring to summer, go for a fun colored flowy dress as well!  You don’t want to look too business professional, so opt for a dress right above the knee with a bright color or pattern!

Walking across the stage at graduation can be nerve racking, so don’t wear 6 inch heels.  Instead, go for a wedge.  Wedge heels have more support and are easier to walk in!  If you’re still worried about falling, try finding heels that have an ankle strap.  This will prevent your feet from sliding around in your shoe.

Happy Graduation!

I am quite the shoe-aholic. I love shoes! Fall 2013 has some killer shoe trends coming our way, and I am going to go over them with you!

 

Formal: If you are headed to a fancy or formal event, I suggest you reach for a pair of Mary Jane pumps or some wedges. Mary Janes are a very classy, vintage looking shoe! Wedges go with almost anything and give you a little bit of height as well!chelsea crockett wedges

 Semi-formal/ Casual: A shoe that I love for any casual occasion is the Oxford shoe. They add a little bit of a vintage feel to any ensemble. Another shoe that I see being very big this fall is the wedge booty. They are super cute and dress your outfit up a bit! They are super versatile!

Every-day Wear: For your every-day shoe, Sperrys or Keds are always a good choice! They are cute, comfortable, and go with almost anything! Taylor Swift even has her own line of Keds that feature super cute patterns.

            Hey everyone!  Because they’re cool, stylish, and easy to throw on, sandals are my favorite shoes for the summer.  You can wear them to the beach or out to a nice dinner.  With their interchangeable patterns and styles, you can be sure to find a pair to match any outfit.

           Chelsea Crockett - Sandals One of my favorite type of sandal is the T-strap.  Whether you have on a sundress or shorts, you can throw on a pair to complete your look!  T-strap sandals have an enormous variety of styles from sparkles and rhinestones to a simple plain color.

            If you’re going out for the night or to a special occasion, buy a fun pair of sandal heels or wedges.  These will be sure to catch people’s attention and turn their heads.  If your feet get sore easily, throw an extra pair of flats in your bag just in caseWink.

            And of course you can’t forget the flip flops.  I wear flip flops almost everywhere throughout the summer.  They’re super comfortable and casual.  They are perfect for the pool or just running errands!

            There are still so many more types of sandals to try out this summer.   Enjoy!

Hey Insiders!

I love shoes. They can take an outfit from being just average to being jaw dropping. They put the finishing touches on any ensemble. Today we are going to take a look at what summer shoes are a must for any wardrobe.

     Flip Flops:

Flip flops come in so many different colors and styles that you are bound to find at least one pair that you fall in love with and that goes with everything. Whether they are silver and sparkly or neon pink with studs, you can always find a pair that suits you. Flip flops are also super comfy.  They are usually cheap, too, so you can buy a pair for every outfit 😉 Collage

     Wedges:

Wedges add class to any ensemble. They come in all heights and styles! You can get anything from peep toed to strappy sandal-like wedges. They come in anything from tribal prints to sweet pastel colors. Pair these with a cute sundress or summer skirt

Wedges1

 Strappy Sandals:

These are a good step between casual sandals and formal wedges. They can be worn to anything from school to church to a day out with friends. I especially love the sandals that have a little strap over your toe.They are unique and make a statement! Strappy sandals are a practical, comfortable choice of shoe for the summer time. They can be worn at both casual and classy events. Collage1

Your shoes tell people about you. They can be a way to express your personal style and personality. 

Strut your stuff, ladies!
