Braids and Flats

So I've always wanted to try one of those gorgeous french braid/messy bun up-dos, and today I finally did! It was actually a lot easier to do than I thought it would be. For some reason, just seeing other girls pull it off so beautifully intimidated me, so I was scared to try it out on my own. But I couldn't be happier with the results!
I feel like my bun could have been a bit messier, but I think you get the picture ;) I love this look and how it accentuates my subtle ombre. I've been debating about whether to go full ombre with blond tips or just stick with my dark to light brown, what do you all think? Oh and in case you don't already know how to do this braided bun, I used this tutorial and just worked from there. 

Today I also wanted to show off one of my favorite pairs of shoes that I constantly get complements on. 
I absolutely ADORE these shoes! They are simple black flats but have a gold band that wraps around your ankles that are simply gorgeous ;) Not only are they cute, but I got them extremely cheap as well. I got these shoes from Ross, which for those of you not in the U.S. is a store similar to TJ/TK Maxx with a lot of discount clothing. I find that if you look in the right spots you can find those diamonds in the rough. I got these for about $10.00, which was totally worth it. Heres a picture of them up close:
The brand name of these shoes is Steve Madden, you can find more of their shoes here. They aren't as cheap as I found this specific pair for, but a lot of their shoes are to die for!

Denim Shirts

So I'm totally in love with denim shirts right now. Especially the super baggy ones. I just find that you can do loads of different styles with them that are super stylin' <3 So I decided to take a few pictures of a couple ways I wear them :)

First off the photographer-
Completed with my very own camera case and cannon camera (actually it is my mothers, but we don't need to get into that...). I just love this look with the baggy shirt, black leggings and some sort of black bag you have to strap over. Cute. Simple. Gotta love it.

Next is the nerdy flirt-
Which I might add is not nerdy, or very flirty, at all. I feel like anytime you tuck in a shirt and add glasses to something everyone slaps the name "nerdy" on it without a second thought, but oh well who really cares -I don't- Haha, anyways, this look is a super cute buttoned to the top, tucked in, messy pony-tailed master piece. And I thought I'd throw in the glasses just for fun. 

Third is for a lazy day-
Yeah, so this picture is incredibly ugly, but when I actually noticed how gross I looked, I was too lazy to take another -oh the irony- But the look itself isn't half bad. There isn't much to it, just slap on an undershirt (mine is black) and put the denim shirt on top of that and voila- you got the lazy look. I should have put my hair into a messy bun, cause I think that completes the look better than a pony tail, but you get the idea.

And lastly is the half tuck-
I personally like this look, and the nerdy flirty look the best. Most of the time I like finishing off this look with a fishtail or french braid but letting it down is just as good. :) This picture doesn't exactly do it justice, but I promise its a super cute look with a "I don't really care" type feel along with a sort of artsy vibe. Well I guess you could say they all have artsy vibes, but oh well, whatevs. 

So obviously these aren't all of the styles you can wear a denim shirt in, in fact there are sooo many more I couldn't possibly blog about them all. However, these are the styles that I like best, and even though you probably don't need me to show you how to wear a shirt, -at least I would hope not...-  maybe I gave you some ideas for future outfits? Or not, it doesn't really matter to me. Either way, I hope you stick around for more blogs and I hope this wasn't at all a waste of time for you ;)

Chel Here

Hello to all of you out there in the blogging universe. I recently decided to start a new blog (obviously) to share some of my random thoughts and feelings with all of you. Because this is my first post, I know not a lot of people (if any) will see this but oh well, I might as well give it a shot.

So I guess I should start off by introducing myself. My name's Chelsea, but just Chel is fine with me ;) I'm planning on having this blog for a load of different topics. I do really like hair and makeup tutorials, so you might see a few of those kind of posts popping up here and there, but I would also like to share about a bunch of other random things too. I love all things psychology, including dreams and personality assessments, and I'm pretty nerdy too with lots of video game obsessions. Oh, and if you're lucky you might even get a few dating tips and relationship advice too. *wink wink, nod nod* Uh huh, I think you get me... Yeah, I take that back, I don't think you want my advice. However, I do think that eventually, if you follow my blog, you will in no doubt find something that relates to you.

Thanks for stopping by to those of you reading this, and I hope you will bear with me as I try to figure this whole blogging thing out!
