Welcome to Simply Chic Style, a Fashion and Lifestyle blog! Simply Chic was started by two girlfriends, Katie & Meggan. We share a common passion for all things chic, as well as for helping women feel confidant and beautiful. We hope to inspire women to find their own unique personal style at any stage of life! We are both young moms with busy schedules. We know how difficult it is to balance everything and still have to have time for yourself, your passions, and to allow yourself to feel beautiful! To make your life easier we want to provide you with resources and inspiration to look fab on the go!
To be fashionable and stylish you don’t have to be running out the door to drop off kids at school, in your 5 inch Jimmy Choo’s! (Even though we love Jimmy’s and totally think you should splurge every now and then!) Hollywood and reality are very different worlds! So we want to bring fashion and style to your world! Sure we will still post fun date night and girl’s night out style ideas that you can modify, however our goal is to for you to realize Fashion doesn’t have to be overwhelming and with a few styling tricks you can look effortlessly chic! You can expect posts such as trends for the upcoming season, fabulous finds, looks for less at local shops, styling tricks, dressing for events, where to save and splurge, and other chic lifestyle posts! We are so excited for you to join us on our journey and we can’t wait to bring you Simply Chic Style!

I am so excited to begin this journey with my friend Meggan! This idea has been in the works for some time and the decision to begin a style blog and eventually an online boutique is so fitting for us! Before meeting Meggan, I first met her adorable Mother in Law Terri. Terri would always tell me you have to meet Meggan you are both so similar and will be instant friends! She was right! The moment I met Meggan it was an instant connection, not sure if it was because we were both doting over each other’s outfits or not lol! But I knew she would be a great friend from the get-go! We had so much in common, our love for Fashion being at the top of that list! We are now both Mommy’s and we have a common desire and goal to help women of all ages, as well as moms, to not be intimated by Fashion but to be able to feel beautiful and confidant in their personal style even with a busy schedule!
My love and interest for fashion began in middle school! I loved helping my girlfriends put outfits together and see the smile on their face after seeing the final look. In college I began working in retail and my passion grew even stronger! I loved being around beautiful clothes and interacting with customers’. My favorite part was styling customers! I really loved the feeling of helping others feel good about themselves! My dream was to pursue a career in Fashion; however being newly married and living in South Florida my options were limited! God had another plan, and that was to be a wife to my husband Bobby and Mommy to my precious sons Colton 4, and Jace 2. I am blessed to have the best job in the world, raising these little men! Passions and dreams don’t have to fade, so now is when I start my Fashion career and journey to helping women feel simply chic! I am certain many of my posts will have little photo bombers in the background for you to see! It’s a crazy but beautiful life! I will love sharing my visions and inspirations with you, as we live Simply Chic!
Katie's beautiful family!
Welcome to Simply Chic! Thank you so much for stopping by! Katie and I are so excited to be joining together on this journey; we can't wait to bring you inspiration and ideas for looking fab in your every day life! Katie is such a sweet friend and beautiful person from the inside out. As she said, we had an instant friendship! We both have a heart for Jesus, our families, fashion and style in all parts of our life! I firmly believe in looking for and creating beauty in every aspect of life.
I grew up in New Jersey and since college have lived all over the US! I have done my fair share of moving for my school and my past corporate job, including living in South Carolina, Michigan, Chicago, New York, North Florida and finally South Florida. While I was living in Manhattan I started dating my husband Kris and relocated to Florida to be with him! We have been married now for almost six years and have one sweet baby girl, Avery Grace! I have been blogging for a few years now as a creative outlet and I am so excited to be joining forces with Katie! Everything is better with your girlfriends!
My style is based on classic pieces mixed with some feminine and glam details! Some of my favorite things include J.Crew, Loft, BCBG, pumpkin spice lattes, anything on Bravo (I know, guilty pleasure!), freshly cleaned sheets, quiet mornings before the day starts, personalized stationery, DIY projects and of course all fashion!

This little one has been forced to love fashion from a young age - one of her many outfit changes!
