Simply Bliss: It’s time to Shop for Yourself!

Confession time … I’m a shopaholic. Like, for real.

I love shopping for clothes, books, purses, sunglasses, home decor, clothes, books, office supplies, books, home decor, and – of course –  clothes. *wink*

But since becoming a mom, I tend to purchase more items for my kids than myself. You too?

First of all, what money my family does have, I need to purchase clothes or shoes for my kids who will NOT STOP GROWING. (Meda went to school last week in pants that fit her a year ago … Notice I didn’t say they fit this year.) There are also fun toys, scholastic book orders, school supplies, field trips and OF COURSE all the EXTRA CURRICULAR ACTIVITY FEES. (Not that I’m bitter about spending a gazillion dollars on gymnastics or anything…)

Secondly, and more importantly – it’s fun. I love the looks on my girls’ faces when they receive a new item of clothing or a toy.

But it’s also fun to buy and receive new stuff for ourselves. Maybe it’s selfish, but I love updating my home with the newest (on sale, please!) item from Pottery Barn or my wardrobe from a favorite store.

So when Blog About connected me with Simply Bliss Boutique, I was pretty pumped.

I hadn’t heard about Simply Bliss until recently, and y’all – I’m so glad I did.


In today’s culture there are a lot of young ladies trying to be noticed in the wrong way, by wearing revealing clothing. (I was one of them for a long time – eek!) The mission behind Simply Bliss is to show women – our daughters, specifically – they can be cute, trendy and modest at the same time.

Modesty is to be desired.

With 3 daughters of my own, I can’t tell you how much I love this and want this for my kids.

So I was happy to learn about this boutique.

I was even happier full-filling my recent yearning to shop. 😉 When I received the Simply Bliss Utility Vest in Olive in the mail, I squealed with delight! (If you follow my IG stories, you saw this excitement a couple weeks ago when it arrived!)

Important to note: It is still hot as be-jezuz here in Memphis in the afternoons. So I may be forcing the fall fashion, but whatever. I’m over the shorts and t-shirts of summer. Bring on the cooler weather!

This vest is lightweight, but still warm and will go with a ton of other clothing. I normally wear somewhere between a small and medium, depending on the clothing item, but I ordered this in a medium, just to be safe. It fit perfectly.

I love this store so far, and I know you will too. Soooooo….

    I was looking through old pictures yesterday and found that I am still wearing some of the same clothes from 10 years ago! I need some new clothes too! I am like you in that I’m always buying for my kids and not for myself.

    Oh, no. I hope I’m not too late. And I hope it’s open internationally. 🙂
    The last time I bought something online was 2 weeks ago and I bought my organic products essentials.
