Finding MY way + Friday Frills

Helloooo galpals and happy, happy Friday!  I don’t know about you, but I am SO ready for the weekend.  LIke whoa.  I have zero plans and I secretly love it!  I plan on watching the Husker game, walking my pups, busting out the Fall decor, stopping by Bath & Body to pick up some new candles, and shooting some bloggy pics!

About those blog pics… I have been on the struggle bus, as of late!  I absolutely love my new camera and it shoots some pretty amazing pics.  When I first got it, we used a certain setting that I really liked and the pictures turned out so good.  Put my sweet little iPhone to shame.  I was so eager to learn more and achieve that uber professional look with my own camera, and not-so-professional photographer, T-rizz!  Well that pressure to achieve the most picture-perfect image like the many super chic and fabulous bloggers I follow and look up to, made me feel less and less enthused and excited to shoot my own great looks.  I’m not good with the ‘learning curve’.  Whether it be in my professional or personal life, I like to know it all right away so I can do my very best from day 1.  So this whole ‘try it out‘ and ‘see what you like best‘ and ‘play around with it and you’ll figure it out‘ makes me really frustrated!  I so wish I had the time to spend hours upon hours devoted to blogging, learning the ins and outs of my camera, shooting amazing photos and the list goes on and on.  But I don’t.  And that irks me beyond belief because I love blogging.  I love SabbyStyle!  I love all of you!  I feel like every decision, experience and relationship has culminated to this time in my life and I am right where I am suppose to be!

So to make a long story short and to sum up a few weeks of feeling down and out, I’ve decided to focus on what I can do and what I enjoy doing.  And that is putting on cute looks, headed somewhere close by aka the backyard or park, and having Tony take my photos.  They aren’t super great, but their ours and we are learning.  It is my hope that my pictures and blog continue to improve as I expand my abilities, capacities and camera knowledge!  So that being said, stay tuned for some fun new pics that are completely Sara and know that I am trying to be the best blogger/mentor/friend I can possibly be through this all!

Now let’s get to my two favorite ‘F’ wordsFRIDAY FRILLS LINK-UP!


This week’s featured blogger is the super chic and fabulous, Nicole from Nicole to the Nines!  We absolutely LOVED her genius print mixing of stripe and floral pieces!  The black and white top pairs flawlessly with her floral skirt and the pop of pink is so great!

    • Blaire, thank you for your kind words. It can be hard not to compare yourself to others, but I am trying to focus on myself and what I enjoy. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment, xo!

  1. I’m so like you, I have the need to master things like immediately, which is impossible and then I’m frustrated. I’m still learning a lot about photography and my fancy camera and trying to be patient 🙂 I think you photos look fabulous by the way!

  2. Sara, I think your appeal is actually greater to me than a lot of those other blogs with “perfect” pics because you are still a REAL person with fab style… so I hope you don’t get too hung up trying to compete or “match up” to them! What I think draws a lot of us to you is that you aren’t showing us $600 shoes and $2000 purses, you’re showing us how to mix and match clothes from target and old navy etc that we can actually afford too, which is soooo much more relatable. And keep in mind, you started this blog because of the following and interest you gained on IG based on just iPhone pics/mirror selfies! As long as we can see your cute outfits, I’m happy, so I hope you don’t sweat it too much and stay true to yourself 🙂 xo

      • Jamee, you are so SO sweet and I love that you are supportive and positive about this venture of mine. It is people like you and other friendly and kind ladies that make me love sharing my fashion, style, and tips on where to get the best deals and when to splurge! Thanks again, xoxo!

    • Heather, this seriously made my day! Like almost to tears because I put so much pressure on myself to be this ideal that is not always achievable. I love that Tony takes my blog pictures and we laugh while doing it, and that makes me happy and I know that I’ve got the best support system on my side! I also think about what it would be like to reach that ‘IG stardom’ and wonder if I would loose that relatable component of wearing Target and Old Navy mixed in with my Kate Spade bags and investment pieces. It’s a catch-22! But I hope that no matter where this blog adventure takes me, I always remain true to myself, my style, my roots, and to always be a REAL gal!
