New Spring Collection From Simplified

New Spring Collection From Simplified

The new spring collection from Simplified is a complete breathe of fresh air!  The cover designs are all gorgeous, simple and refined. The Simplified brand believes in keeping things minimal and meaningful on purpose. Each of the new planners and products feature new patterns that are sure to brighten your days and keep you organized.  The entire collection launches on April 1st on their website. 

This year, in addition to the Simplified Planners, the collection features several new products including an academic version of Dapperdesk, a new teacher planner, a wedding planner, planner pouches and a bunch of fun accessories.



Signature Simplified Planners (both daily and weekly) are available in six different cover options, Gold Bee, Happy Floral, Pink Pinstripe, Happy Stripe, Blue Trellis and Pineapple Crest.  The daily planners have the wire-o binding with an inside pocket and new sticker sheet plus Simplified prep work in the beginning. The weekly planners have a book bound, lay-flat binding with inside pocket, stickers and prep work as well. Both layouts are clean and feel like a fresh start every time you turn the page.



For the first time, Dapperdesk is being offered in an academic year (August 2020 – July 2021). The Dapperdesk planner is a book bound daily planner with a leatherette flexible cover (softbound) and page marker ribbon. It has the same Mohawk paper as the signature planner, monthly and daily pages (Saturday and Sunday each have a page) but does not have the upfront prep work.  It is available in two cover designs as well as a special launch bundle.



The new Simplified Teacher Planner has been redesigned this year with a new cover and wire-o binding plus an inside pocket, five sheets of stickers, worksheets and weekly lesson planning spreads. The planner has the same Mohawk paper, is easy to use and can be paired with your daily or weekly planner for a complete system. It features the Happy Dot cover design and is available in several bundle options.



The brand new Simplified Wedding Planner will launch with the academic collection as well.  This stunning, classic planner is a genuine keepsake. The binder style white leatherette cover with gold dot foil is elegant and beautifully designed. It features the same Mohawk paper, six essential planning sections, a 12-month undated format, an interior pocket for storing important details, a gold foil sticker sheet and so much more.  The mini vows notebook set also makes a great add on as you both plan your special day.



There are so many fun accessories in this collection but the real favorite are the new Planner Pouches. They are made of a leatherette material with navy fabric lining (interior padding) plus a gold pineapple zip closure detail.  There are two patterns available, Happy Floral and Blue Trellis. Both pouches are roomy and able to fit the Signature Simplified Planners (daily or weekly) as well as Dapperdesk.



Other new accessories coming from Simplified are a Citrus pattern list pad and block notepad, a weekly Happy Stripe planning pad, a Happy Floral pen, a gold foil sticker sheet and a new “Honey The Bee”  hat. Matching magnetic page markers and mini notebooks will also be available in all the new cover designs to coordinate with your planner.



As usual, Team Simplified did not disappoint and it will be hard to decide which cover style to choose and so fun to mix and match all the accessories. For all the latest details on the launch, follow Simplified on Instagram and Facebook.
