When were bomber jackets first in style? When did they come back in style? Did they ever really go out of style? It seems like all of a sudden bomber jackets are all the rage, however when I think about fashion and how it's evolved it seems like they were always around in some capacity. I remember having a leather bomber about 7+ years ago, and they were part of my school uniform way back in the day, so I guess I've always been into them, but they feel different this time. They come in prints, and fun colors, lighter materials and I've bought 3 in the last month. I don't have a problem though :)

When PILOTMAN reached out to me about partnering with them, I will admit I was a bit confused after I went on their Amazon store and saw they only carry ties. I've never worn a tie before, and I don't review products I don't use/wear, but I do love all things menswear inspired so I decided to go for it!
And I'm glad I did because I love the TIE (which is 100% silk and only $14.99) and the whole look! The colors are so rich and vibrant and they would add a nice pop to any suit, button down or however you chose to wear it. Just look at the difference the tie makes between the picture above and below! 
For you ladies worried about a men's tie being too thick or too long, try it with a buttoned up menswear vest or paired with a button down and worn on the inside of a crew neck sweater. That way, not all of the tie is exposed. 
Happy Tie(ing)!

So, you remember in my last post I mentioned I didn't wear the heart dress to my cousin's wedding? Well, instead I ended up shopping in my closet and wearing this floral brocade skirt I received c/o of eShakti over a year ago. I thought it would be too warm and heavy for a July outdoor wedding in LA, but it worked out just fine! Happy Monday.

WEARING: eShakti skirt (DRESS VERSION), zara top, prada heels, neiman marcus bag

I love all things kitschy, quirky, novelty, hearty & this dress is all of the above! I was drawn to it in the store because I also love all things black and white, but when I got closer and saw that there were hearts all over it, I knew I had to have it.
I was shopping for a dress to wear to my cousin’s wedding and c’mon—does  it get more perfect than a beautiful, flowy maxi dress with hearts? Well…. 
I actually didn’t end up wearing it to my cousin’s wedding and I honestly can’t remember why but I still love it, and can’t wait for the next best, perfect occasion to put it on and show off my hearty style.

I received this SHAPES AND COLORS LAYERED NECKLACE from HAPPINESS BOUTIQUE several weeks ago and I have been wearing it on repeat every since. Or I guess I should say I've been wearing them on repeat ever since, because it's actually 3 separate necklaces! I mostly wear them together but they are just as fabulous individually and work well to spruce up an outfit when you're looking for something more understated than a big statement necklace. 
Aside from essentially getting 3 necklaces for the price of one, my next favorite thing about ordering from Happiness Boutique is that shipping is fast and free and until 9/19 you can receive 10% off your purchase over 19 euros with the code SIMPLYCHIC08. 
So get to shopping! Check out all their necklaces NECKLACES and be sure to take part in their CUSTOMER REWARD PROGRAM where you get points for doing fun things like posting on social media :)

I walked into Banana Republic to pass time before an appointment and I walked out with this suit. I 100% don't need a suit, but it's timeless and versatile and pretty fly in my most humble opinion. I've worn the pieces separately before and now I'm just waiting on that perfect occasion to put them together.

Typically I don't wear short shorts with little tops. I either show the legs and cover the arms or cover the arms and show the legs. But when it comes to my vacation style all of that goes out the window. Partially because I feel free and less self conscious about showing too much skin, but mostly just because of the heat.

 Here are some more looks and pictures from my recent birthday trip to Puerto Vallarta.
The view from my hotel/apartment...the highly recommended PINNACLE 220. I will for sure stay here when I go back. 
This was the only time I dressed up on the trip and it was to party on the eve of my birthday.
Other than that one night I was super casual, mostly in bikinis and mostly in THESE RIBBON BOW JELLIES.
On my actual birthday I crossed ATV riding off my bucket list! 
And in a moment of "Who cares. I'm on vacation in Mexico" this was my ATV/waterfall adventure/birthday outfit :-/ Who wears low waisted shorts, with a high waisted bikini? ME! 
And to sum things up, this picture was a huge reason I took this trip! I had been seeing all these folks having fun in floats this summer and I wanted in on the action. So I booked my flight, got my picture and had an amazing vacation & birthday in the process!

**Simply Chic Travel Tips: Puerto Vallarta**
If you're on the West Coast, this is such an easy and affordable trip. The flights and hotel are inexpensive if you go in August which is supposedly the rainy season, plus the dollar goes very far. I'm talking $30 90 min massages and $25 brunches for 2 with 4 drinks! PV is officially my beach getaway spot!
