#ITSBANANA

 
Ok, it's official...this chambray suit is my favorite Banana Republic purchase to date. I think it's so chic and so versatile and so everything. I first wore it HERE with a low cut tank top for a night out with the girls and nearly a year later I wore it to church on Easter Sunday with long sleeves and a bedazzled vest, also from Banana. I just LOVE it, so much so that I might just put it on for work tomorrow.

WEARING: banana republic suit (GREY VEST, GREY PANTS) & top, mojo moxy pewter bow pumps (BETSY JOHNSON PRINCE BOW PUMP)

WHAT TO WEAR: SPACATION

 Does this jumpsuit not scream vacation?! I wore this on the spa day of my semi annual spacation and this easy breezy relaxed look was perfect for an easy breezy relaxed day. 
 
First there was a delcious brunch at THE MISSION with mimosas and a bottle of rosé. Next there was a body scrub, shower and massage from my favorite masseuse at THE VH SPA and lastly more champagne while my girfriends and I lounged around in plush robes until the spa closed. It was as fabulous as it sounds and I can't wait to do it again next year.

WEARING: macy's jumpsuit (NEED THIS OFF THE SHOULDER ONE), furla bag, target sunnies, david yurman jewlery & michael kors watch

UNMELLOW YELLOW

So, I gave up shopping for Lent and of course there was a FASHION BOMB DAILY/COCKTAILS WITH CLAIRE event the day before Easter. I thought about breaking my shopping diet and buying something new and fabulous, but there was NO NEED to do that when this statement making yellow duster has been patiently waiting for over a year to make its debut. There's really something to be said about shopping in your closet & saving money!

WEARING: zara duster (GOOD OPTION) & heels, amazon dress, neiman marcus bag

8 YEARS AND COUNTING

I took an unexpected hiatus, but I'm back today on the 8th anniversary of the inception of Simply Chic! And if you can believe it, it all started with the skirt I’m wearing, first featured in this post HERE! It's pretty cool to see how far this blog has come from me taking outfit pictures in the mirror to photo shoots around town with local photographers, partnering with brands, being featured on sites, attending conferences etc. etc. So, although it can feel like an annoying, low paying part time job at times, I truly still enjoy creating content, reading your comments, and checking out your blogs. And I’m looking forward to the next 8 years!

FINDING FLARES

If you remember in THIS post, I brought out my wide leg jeans because I was feening for flares and I couldn't find any that didn't cost way too much for something so trendy. Well Banana Republic to the rescue! For some starnge reason these on trend flares were on super sale and I got them around $30. Talk about deal of the day. Nonetheless, I'd love to find some that also cover my shoes. I think I need to go wider at the bottem and even longer to make that happen. If anyone has tips on altering flares to cover the shoe, please do let me know. 

WEARING: $8 SCARF FROM AMAZON, loft shawl sweater, banana republic flares (SIMILAR)
