S I X years ago to the day this blog came to life. Can you believe that? It's hard for me to wrap my head around the idea that my first post was in 2009...crazy-bananas!

Back then, the blogesphere was far less saturated than it is now. Most of the bloggers I followed  at the time were dressed to the     N I N E S in every single post, and while they were fun to look at, what they wore wasn't really feasible for my every day world of going to work, and brunch and Target. Ha!

I created my blog as a place where women can see how other women who live ordinary lives dress. I created a place to hopefully inspire you and give you outfit ideas. I created a place to show you that classic, doesn't always mean boring especially when you add pineapples (and great pumps) on top.

Whether you're a skinny minnie, a BBW or somewhere in between we all have issues getting our clothes to fit just the way we want them to. Well ladies, I have the perfect solution for you. eShakti! eShakti is all about customized sizing and I'm in love with this FLORAL JACQUARD FULL SKIRT they sent me!

 When I turned 30 I vowed to stay away from girly silhouettes, but I had to go for it when I saw this gorgeous print (which is even more stunning in person).

 Not only did they customize the skirt to my height and waist size, they also gave me the option for hem lengths, and of course I went with midi. The quality of this skirt and all of my eShakti pieces are superb. Order from them — you won't be disappointed! And for a limited time, my readers get 10% off with the code "simplychic". Happy shopping!

Guess who's a #RBItGirl for ROCKSBOX?!

 Yep, that would be me! Rocksbox is sort of like Rent The Runway, but for jewelry.  When you sign up, you fill out a quick style survey and based on your answers + the items you've added to your wishlist, they will send you 3 pieces of jewelry from great brands like Kendra Scott & House of Harlow. If you love your pieces, great! You can “rent” them for as long as you want OR you also have the option to buy them at a discount! If you don’t love them, swap them for something else. Did I mention you get free shipping both ways?!

 And guess what else you lucky ladies??!! For a limited time, when you sign up with the code iamsimplychicxoxo, you get your first month free! I highly recommend trying it out because—well who doesn’t like free stuff (especially jewelry) and if you're not satisfied after your first month you're not obligated to continue, but I have a strong feeling you will. Happy shopping!!!

Happy Easter (Monday)! I had my pink dress out and ready to go for church yesterday, but when I woke up it was cloudy, windy & cold, so I opted for a jumpsuit instead. And let me tell you, I love this jumpsuit. I feel like I can run the world every time I wear it!
