March 23rd, 2017 by Samantha Weaver New In: Road Trip-Ready Spring Dresses

We love a great road trip, but with unreliable spring weather in the mix, we’re not quite ready for a ride down the open road in our denim shorts. With that in mind, we’ve rounded up our newest spring dresses fit for your next road trip! All styles available this week at all Crossroads locations! 

 

Oceanside Dress with Front Pockets ($42.50). This light cotton dress makes the perfect outfit for a dinner out or a walk along the beach.

 

We all know how versatile bombers are, but our Reversible Sateen Bomber ($26.50) adds style to function with zero effort!

 

You can’t go wrong with stripes when you’re on the road, but add a splash of denim and you’ve got yourself a quintessential California look. Pictured here: Our Striped Boat Dress ($32.50) worn under our California Patch Denim Bomber ($25).

Our Essential Denim Dress ($38.50) is perfect for a drive down HWY 1 on a spring day. Grab your high-top Converse and go for a ride!

March 23rd, 2017 by Jennifer Beile 7 Celebrity Blogs Worth Following

We follow our favorite celebrities on social media to get an inside peek into their lives, but sometimes that’s just not enough. Luckily, for those looking for more than 140 characters or an Instagram caption, many of them also have blogs to discuss their interests more in-depth. Some of these celebrity bloggers have incredibly useful tips and inspiration for all areas of your life, perhaps unsurprisingly. After all, they’ve worked with and learned from the best in the business!

I’ve rounded up my most recommended celebrity blogs, worth adding to your favorites!

 

Jamie Chung, What the Chung? 

JamieChung

Former reality star-turned-actress Jamie Chung created her blog What the Chung? to share her passion for style, beauty and travel. Her outfit-of-the-day photos will lure you in, while her beauty and travel sections will inspire you to stay a loyal reader.

 

Olivia Palermo, Olivia Palermo 

OliviaPalmero

Fashion, beauty, art, and travel—what more could you want from the fashion “it” girl who’s come a long since her days on reality TV? My favorite section of her blog has to be the shop section, where you can shop Olivia’s favorite pieces without having to search endlessly for that piece you spotted on her in a paparazzi photo.

 

Hannah Brofman, HBFIT 

Processed with VSCO with f1 preset

The DJ superstar who’s now a health and fitness blogger inspires her readers to live their healthiest lives on their own terms. Down to earth, quirky, and honest, Hannah began sharing her fitness journey on Instagram. She soon turned to blogging to share her ever-expanding wealth of tips and thoughts.

 

Lauren Conrad, Lauren Conrad 

LaurenConrad

Lauren Conrad’s blog is the epitome of girl-next-door advice. Humble and honest, Lauren and her team share tips, DIYs, and inspiration in topics ranging from fashion to food and health to décor.

 

Tiffani Thiessen, Tiffani Thiessen

TiffanyThiessen

The ’90s kid inside me squealed with delight when I found out that Tiffani (it almost pains me to leave out the “Amber”) Thiessen has her very own show on the Cooking Channel (Dinner at Tiffanis), as well has her own blog! In it, Tiffani shares her impressive cooking and dinner party skills with her fans, old and new. Who knew the former teen actress was so humble, down to earth, and skilled in the kitchen?!

 

Ashley Madekwe, Ring My Bell 

celebrity blogs

I admittedly came across Ashley’s blog very recently, not realizing I was coveting the style of the star of ABC’s Revenge. Ashley started her blog before she made it as a TV actress, as a way to keep her family and friends updated on her life while she traveled for work. Eventually, Ashley was able to grow her blog into a space to share fashion and inspiration not only with her television fans, but with all fashion lovers.

 

Gwyneth Paltrow, Goop

GwynethPaltrow

I know, I know—Goop has a love-hate reputation amongst fans and readers. But all prior judgements aside, Goop is a well-written blog with everything from style, food, health, career and family tips. It is definitely targeted toward readers with a taste for luxury, but for the rest of us, we can always live vicariously through Gwyneth.

March 21st, 2017 by Jennifer Beile Move Over, Florals: Fresh Spring Prints to Covet

Florals will never be out—not for spring or any other season. Floral is a classic print that flatters women and men, young and old. With that said, sometimes you need some more variety in your wardrobe for some freshness and inspiration. I’ve rounded up some of my favorite spring prints to try adding to your wardrobe this season.

 

Gingham

Gingham

Gingham is traditionally a summer staple, but it can easily be incorporated into your wardrobe earlier in the year. There are so many different ways to wear this eye-catching print!

 

Stripes

spring prints

Horizontal or vertical, colorful or muted—stripes are a classic and variable print that can be worn for any style and occasion.

 

Embroidery

Embroidery

The spring trend that screams fun and boldness? Embroidery. Embroidery can transform the most ordinary item into a statement piece.

 

Polka Dots

PolkaDots

Feminine and flirty, polka dots in varying scales are back in a big way this spring.

 

What are your favorite spring prints?

March 20th, 2017 by Melanie Sutrathada 6 Outfits to Inspire Your Coachella Style

When it comes to music festivals, one thing is for sure—nothing quite compares to Coachella. The festival has come to be known for its phenomenal lineups, celebrity appearances, iconic ferris wheel, and, of course, its fashion. For years, it’s functioned for many as a what-to-wear guide for spring and summer.

If you’re looking to pull together the finishing touches on your festival outfits, read on! Kick up your Coachella style with these outfits for inspiration.

 

coachella

Achieve this look with an embellished crop top, ripped jean shorts, and a long, sheer kimono. Finish it up with a pair of sturdy boots—they’ll save your toes while you’re dancing in a crowd!

If dresses aren’t your thing, play it cool like Natalie Off Duty with high-waisted shorts and a short-sleeved raglan tee. With the sun beaming down all day, a wide-brimmed hat is a must-have at Coachella!

 

P3 - Racquel Natasha

Nail perfect Coachella style by donning an effortless all-white ensemble. Whether you choose a romper, a dress, or a two-piece, a monochrome white outfit looks polished and exudes an air of ease and sophistication.

 

P4 - Stephanie Giesinger

A sheer lace number over a bralette and shorts can turn heads on its own, but layer on some statement chokers and necklaces, and you have a blogger-approved festival outfit. Pack a small bag with enough cash for garlic crab fries and watermelon slices!

 

P5 - The Viva Luxury

Toughen up your festival look with a leather skirt featuring details like studs and spikes. Coachella is a prime time to load up on accessories, so go all out with rings, bracelets, and body chains—there’s no such thing as too much jewelry.  

 

P6 - Thrifts and Threads

If you’re planning on wearing a dress to the music festival, try a long maxi dress with a slit! Not only is the slit eye-catching, it keeps you from feeling constricted when you’re dancing in the crowd.
