Hello all! So today I have very exciting news! For those of you out there that have been following my blog this past year, you know that my fiancé has been overseas in Kuwait since the beginning of July. Well guess what? Today I am picking him up from the airport!!! While he is not home for good (just a 2-week leave), I am ecstatic beyond what words can describe! It’s been a long 177 days… but who’s counting?
That being said, I will be absent from the blog scene during the next 2 weeks as he will have my undivided attention. I do, however, have some new and exciting posts for you all when I return! (I admit I have been slacking the past month or so with my blogging in comparison to previous months, but I promise to be back in full swing soon)!
As always, thanks for reading SimplyChic! Have a fabulous New Year and visit again in mid-January! :)
P.S. Be sure to check out my newly updated blog roll for some good reads while I’m gone! Also, check out this blog post for some great New Year’s beauty resolutions!
Outfit details: Necklace – $6.80 @ Forever21; Mossimo boyfriend tee – $8 @ Target; Merona cardigan – $4.99 @ Goodwill in West St. Paul; Caché jeans – $10 @ Elite Repeat Consignment in St. Paul; Gap flats – $12 (on clearance) @ Gap.
You know you’re wearing mom jeans when they just about reach your belly button and contain the word “spandex” on the tag. Nonetheless, these jeans are by far one of the most comfortable pair I own so I will continue to sport them proudly! :) May I add that they also make for great holiday get-together pants as an excuse to eat copious amounts of food, not that I would ever do that…
On another note, I was giddy (yes, I said giddy) when I recently came across these metallic gold ballerina-inspired flats for a mere $12 (orig. $40) at the Gap! A bit of gold is a fun and easy way to glam up any ensemble this time of year.
Stay tuned for tomorrow’s post where I will be revealing some exciting news!

With winter well underway, I am currently on the search for warm, chic and affordable sweaters. I managed to snag this next-to-new Gap one from Goodwill for a mere $5 this past weekend! Considering heavy wool sweaters like these from Gap range anywhere from $40-$70, there’s no doubt I got this for a steal of a deal! How about you – have you recently come across any great seasonal clothing items for a bargain worth bragging about?
