Recent Purchases

Hayyyy yallll! Happy Saturday! Do I start every post like that?! Pahaha! Sorry! Anyway, I’ve decided to start doing “recent purchases” posts! I buy lots of things that don’t make my feed because they don’t fit in with the vibe of things & when I get tons of questions about them at work or places like that I’m like well shoot! I want to share these things with y’all too!

I have to admit I spend tons of time looking online for cute clothes that are decent priced. And I like looking online because I can see how things look and fit on models instead of spending hours at the mall trying on stuff and searching through store racks. It’s just more convenient for me! So hopefully these posts can be convenient for y’all to!

Wrap Ankle Pants | $35

High Neck Bodysuit | $12

(paired the pants above with this)

Striped T-Shirt Dress | $12

Smocked Ruffle Top | $15

Mentioning that I did size up on the bodysuit. Everything else ran true to size!

Kimono Shoppin’

Hey ladies! Who here doesn’t love a good kimono?! I love them because they are so versatile! You can wear them over a fitted dress, with jeans & a bodysuit, over a bathing suit, or even with jean shorts and a tank!

Today I’m sharing this entire look + my favorite kimono picks right now!

The tank I’m wearing I bought in two colors and I am absolutely obsessed with the fit & the feel! It can be worn alone or under something (like the kimono or a light jacket) and can be worn tucked in or out!

Bar Front Tank | $18

My jean shorts are from American Eagle. I walked in there one day and just went jean short crazy! YALL! They have tonsssss of options! I decided it was finally time for me to invest in some non-forever 21 age appropriate jean shorts and these were one of my picks! Linking them below for y’all!

High Waisted Denim Short | $37

This kimono was from forever but it is sold out currently! I’m linking my top two picks closest to mine & you can scroll through the slider below to see all my different picks! With kimonos I usual size down one size! With jackets or flowy clothes I normally do that to make everything look slimmer!

Floral Kimono | $25

Long Line Duster | $39

– KIMONO PICKS –

 

P.S. you could size down in the shirt if you want a tighter fit because it’s more of a loose shirt in your normal sizing! In jean shorts I sized up a whole size because I wanted them to fit looser as well!

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

They are easy to put in your hair as well so you don’t need to have major hair skills to do it! Simply tie a scarf in or they even make them as pony tails or headbands to fake it till you make it!!

Here’s some examples of how you can incorporate them into your hair style & bellow I’ll tag some links to shop them! All are under $20!!

Solid Silk Scarf Pony | $12

Scarf Pony | $12

Bow Scrunchie | $6

Bandana Scarf Pony | $12

Like I said, there’s are super easy! Tie them around your whole head as a headband, put your hair half up half down and tie it around your pony, or tie it around a messy bun! I love the headbands because they are easy and to fake it & I also love the Scrunchies because again, it keeps it simple!

Happy scarf shopping y’all!

Chelsey Curls Tutorial

Hey all! I’ve been wanting to do another Chelsey curls tutorial, here it is – me in all my relaxed fixing my hair at home glory. I say “like”,”so”, and other things a billion times. Sorry for that pahaha! I also can’t control it but for some reason I raise my left eyebrow when I get in front of a camera.

In this video I am using Paul Mitchell’s express ion smooth flat iron. It’s a 1 1/2 width (correcting myself from the video), and has an adjustable heat setting which is always helpful! It’s on sale today and I’m linking it below!

Ion Smooth | $89

Posting the video below & listing some key points under that!

Take aways from this are to not give the flat iron a death grip, leave some space so it can turn and not get stuck! Curl everything away from your face. Make sure flat iron is facing down towards the floor!

PRACTICE WITH FLAT IRON OFF! That’s the best advice I can give y’all haha!!!

Let me know if y’all have ANY questions and I am more then happy to help!

Flower Power Shorts

Hey y’all! Finally hoping on to share these shorts with you guys! HOW CUTE ARE THEY?! Pink + floral!? = perfection!! They are also $17 so that makes them even better!

These photos were taken a little earlier last month so at the time I paired them with a white body suit, a jean jacket, some white sneakers and this adorable hair tie! Of course at this moment in Louisiana the heat is already full on and I would not pair with a jean jacket πŸ˜‚

Either way a cute casual white top tucked in or out would be cute! I sized up in the shorts (because y’all know I’m all weird about having shorts/pants cut into your waist) but definitely didn’t need to! I’d say they run true to size!

Floral Short | $17

I’m also going to take a moment to talk about the yummiest place to get a shake ever in life!!! Shake therapy!! okay, I am not one that gets to have sweets every night of the week, so when I get them I want it to be exactly what I want! Y’all, this place lets you literally build your own shake! You get to pick your ice cream base, things you want to add in it, what you want on the rim & what you want as toppings! Ummm a Nutella rim?! YES! I know I’m being a little dramatic, like hello Chelsey it’s just desert. But, it was that good, so I’ll own it!

I also get a lot of questions about my sneakers, I am sharing them below! They are around $80 and I absolutely love & get a lot of wear out of them! They are perfect to dress down an outfit or keep it casual and they are actually very easy to keep clean! Anytime I get stuff on them Ryan throws them in the wash machine for me and they are good as new!

Superga | $80

I’ll link the rest of my outfit down below & I’ll pray for you all that you get to go to shake therapy soon! lol, trust me! It’s worth it!

Tuesday Shoe Day

Totally aware it’s Wednesday, butttt just go with it! Today’s Tuesday shoe day is dedicated to a more causal pair of kicks! They are a tad on the more pricey side too but they feel like heaven on your feet & the color is the most perfect color ever! – so, they are worth the splurge!

I would also recommend sizing up a full size because they are a more fabric type of shoe and it makes them fit a little tighter! I normally wear an 8, ordered an 8 1/2, and could have deff gone for the 9. I don’t actually go running in running shoes so this isn’t too big of a problem that they are a little snug πŸ˜‚πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ.

Linking them down below!

Nike | $150

Happy Wednesday people! Half way there!

ruffle pants & the perfect crop top!!

Happy Tuesday guys! I’m finally back in the swing of things after my vacay and am ready to hit the ground running with some blog posts! I have some caaaauteeee stuff I’ve been holding out on, so … let’s dive right in!

Today I am sharing the cutest pants that I came across and just had to have!! They have a flowy girlie look to them and I love that! They can definitely be worn dressed up or down for different occasions! I love where they are hitting at the ankle and the way they split (p.s. this whole split pants thing is very in for summer, I’m sure there’s a real term for them but we’ll just roll with it)!

Ruffle Wrap Pants | $38

I paired them with the most PERFECT tuckable crop top! The feel, fit, & color of this crop top are going to make it very versatile for summer. It can be worn with anything high waisted in any color! Since I’m a little bustier in the chest I tend to like a tighter fitting shirt with a pair of flowy pants.

Off the Shoulder Crop |$8.90

I would have rather wore these pants with a one strap ankle heel. However I left them at Krista’s House when we went to shoot. Sooo, my feet are cropped out of most of the pictures! I had to throw on whatever shoes I had in the car pahaha!!! I would wear a shoe just like what is pictured on the model!

I think this outfit is so cute for a summer function where you have to be a little more dressy casual! The pants are made pretty well and for the price I think they are a steal! I’m also linking some similar pants options below in the shop the post slider so be sure to check if you want some other options!

I also sized up in the pants because they have an elastic band & that’s always one of my little tricks. If I’m wearing a tight tucked in top I want the waist band to be looser that way it’s not creating indent in my side. I also size up on most crop tops because ummmm, they are already small and I’m not 18 anymore so yea πŸ˜‚ also my pants were supposed to be tied a little bit more and hide the elastic band but, ya can’t win them all right?! They also deff need to be steamed or ironed!

And before I forget I wanted to wish all the mommas reading a happy late Mother’s Day! I’m laughing to myself because I know a bunch of you have actually got my blog info from my fabulous momma! My mom is the best & I am so thankful for her constant love, support, & selflessness. She’s always been the person telling me I can make anything happen & I know if it wasn’t for her I wouldn’t be half of what I am today. So, to the rest of my family, friends, clients and blog readers that are mommas – I certainly hope y’all all had a great day yesterday because lawd knows y’all deserve it!

Dry Shampoo Favorite

Okay, so I’m kinda sure I have maybe already done a blog post on this … however, I have had a margarita and am super into this product so I’m sharing again. Since I’m traveling and it’s a must bring, I feel like it’s necessary!

PAUL MITCHELL INVISIBLEWEAR DRY SHAMPOO. Y’all, I’m so obsessed & it’s only $18. I have never used anything that I instantly LOVED for my hair like this product. This whole new invisiblewear line Paul Mitchell has created is hands down my favorite line they have done so far (I plan on getting more into the line in a later post but for this moment we’ll just stick with the dry shampoo)!

They make a invisiblewear BLONDE & BRUNETTE dry shampoo. They have colors because if you take a normal dry shampoo and spray it all over a darker head of hair you will find that there is a light powdery residue that it leaves on the crown of the head (or wherever it has been sprayed). Paul Mitchell fixed this problem by creating a brown tinted powder, as well as a blonde tinted powder.

You would have never thought but this dry shampoo is working well to conceal grays in between color appointments too! Since this is doubling as a root touch up, I hear everyone that is using it raving about that aspect of it!!

I’d like to touch on one other thing about it that I love & then we’ll wrap it up! I also use this as a texture spray after I have just washed my hair. I know that sounds crazy?! I’m using a dry shampoo after I’ve washed my hair … BUT, since this is a powder like spray it give your hair crazy texture and volume! If you hate freshly washed hair lots of dry shampoos will give this affect, howeverrrrr, this dry shampoo in particular has proven to create MAJOR volume in hair!

Since I’m sure y’all are tired of me rambling I’m linking products below, click the pink & it will bring you directly to the products page!

BLONDE | $18

BRUNETTE | $18

so, in a nutshell, my main points for loving this product are 1) the formulation really works well for my hair. 2) the light color of the spray is actually nice because it lightens up my darker root in a very subtle way. 3) it gives crazy texture and volume.

Baker Boy Hat


Hey y’all! Blogging’ from Boston over here! I’ve sooo been waiting to share this hat with y’all from the second I got it! Okay, I’ve also been waiting to share the shirt too because I love it and it’s so comfy!

I couldn’t seem to get a good picture that I lovedddd enough to Instagram so y’all are just getting the picture on the blog lol! I think I am officially screwed because I am spoiled by Krista’s pictures! She is the freakin bestttt & now when I take a iPhone picture of a outfit I’m like…ew! Why does this look so crappy?! Obviously because it’s not taken on an professional camera. First world problems. I know! But just keeping it real!

Anyway, back to why we’re here! So, I paired my pink hat with a grayish white tie-up sweater tank & some white jeans! The top is supposed to be tight and kinda show your tummy & I didn’t want that walking around Boston so, I sized up! It ended up having a good relaxed fit! I threw on a jean jacket, because Boston is crazy and it’s 60 degrees here (aka freezing).

Baker Boy Hat | $14

Lace-Up Tank | $12

For shoes I went with my coolway espadrilles. YALL, I wore these ALL DAY walking around & they were SO COMFY! I am 110% a fan of these. I literally had no blisters anywhere and at no point did my feet hurt. I want them in every color now. I am officially obsessed with these because of their comfort level, their simplicity & their ability to work with a casual outfit or a dressy casual outfit! For the price of these I’m saying they are a must have shoe! I also think they are age appropriate for everyone!!!

Platform Espadrille | $54

So, if the hat is a little too much out of your comfort zone and this post was pointless at leastttt I brought you good shoe reviews right?! πŸ˜‚πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

App Favorite

Hey y’all! Happy Friday! TGIF for everyone else but me haha!! Today I wanted to hop on and share one of my favorite shopping apps with y’all! I’ve used this app for years and am always very happy with ANY purchases I make, be it clothes, furniture or beauty related products!

The app is called HAUTELOOK. It is a members only shopping app/website that does short sales with all kinds of brands. For instance they will have free people one day, Gucci the next and everything is marked down to about 50/75% off. (P.S. members only just means you need to be logged in to shop, anyone can join!)

I love this because it’s a good way to get DIFFERENT fashion finds for a less expensive price! So it’s not like your at the mall buying a shirt from Macy’s that 373673 other people in the New Orleans area have! HauteLook is owned by Nordstrom so you are getting very high quality pieces that you aren’t normally seeing!

I don’t just use them for clothes either. I have bought numerous items of furniture/decor for my house on this app! A huge discount on furniture or a nice new bed set is always a win win to me! They also have short sales on makeup/skin products too, I love this because I always stock up when they do!!

Plus for all my mommas, wifeys or just sweet girls that like to give gifts they have sections for men and kids/baby’s! I loveeee the baby finds on here for my best friends baby because again, they are different items that not everyone has!

I’ll upload some pictures below just so y’all can see what the app is like! First to chow you how they categorize things and second so you can see the price drop!

The catch here is that these sales will last for about 3 days, so you gotta snag stuff when you see it! I’m pre warning y’all that it’s a addictive shopping app lol! But I am telling you I get some awesome stuff from here!

Happy downloading!
