I’ve got sunshine…. in this dress! Hi friends and happy mid-week to you all! How was everyone’s long weekend??? Why, oh why, do they always go so fast?! I had big plans to be super-duper productive and cross a ton off of my to-do list and guess what…. that. did. not. happen.  But, it was a weekend well spent with friends and family, sushi dates two nights in a row, BBQ’s and yard games, saw Pitch Perfect 2, took a few naps, slept in, cuddled the pups, and got to soak up the sunshine all day on Monday!  I also got to finally wear this gorgeous yellow shift dress from Le Boutique Shop!  The color is so brilliant and bright and the pop of leopard was just the right touch!  I’ve been drawn to yellow as of late and I plan to make this dress the party dress of the year.  The styling possibilities are endless!

Hi friends and happy Humpday! How is your week treating you? It has been pretty rainy and actually quite cold (low of 38 last night!) so I’m lagging but I have some cool news to share with you!  As most of you know, I work for a local nonprofit organization called Heartland Family Service.  And as most of you all know, I truly love my job!  Our mission is to strengthen the lives of individuals and families in our community through education, counseling and support services. From more than sixteen locations in Nebraska and Iowa, we serve people of all ages and all incomes — most on a sliding fee scale.  Last year, we served over 65,000 people in their time of need!

Today is Omaha Gives! which is an annual 24-hour charitable challenge to benefit Omaha-Metro area nonprofits. This community give-together begins at midnight on May 20 with a minimum gift of only $10.  As friends of mine that have big hearts, I invite you to show some love and donate to this agency and mission that is near and dear to my heart; Heartland Family Service.  Your generous and thoughtful gift allows us to continue the impactful and life-saving work that we can offer to the most vulnerable in our community.  Thank you in advance for your love and support!

IG Lately…

Hi gal pals!  Was it just me, or did the week draggggg on? My gosh it was the never ending story!  Any hoots, the weekend is finally upon us and I couldn’t be more delighted! Tone and I are going to spend some time on the course today (he loves golf and I love the sun!) and then probably do some shopping and then I’m sure a happy hour of some sorts will be involved 🙂 Speaking of shopping…. I think I need to reign it in and put myself on a spending halt.  I always try to spend less and shop infrequently, but lately my will power has been quite weak!  I pray, think, and plan on how I can shop less, what triggers/temptations to avoid, and to visualize all that moolah piling up in my savings account.  Now, I, by no means quote unquote “struggle” with this because there are much bigger issues in life than this; but I just want to be honest that lately I have been saying yes more than saying no.  First step is acceptance, right?!

So in the spirit of not shopping, I’ve put together an IG round-up for today’s post in which many of the items I’m wearing are constantly repeated and are great closet staples!  See, look at that can-do/shop-my-own-closet attitude 🙂

Saturday Coffee with Sara

Hi friends and happy Saturday ! How was everyone’s week?! Mine was pretty crazy with a jam-packed work schedule.  We had our Safe Haven Golf Tournament yesterday to raise support and awareness for our Domestic Violence/Sexual Assault programs, which includes our Safe Haven concealed shelter for women and children.  Though a lot goes into logistically planning for a fundraising event and something always happens in the 11th hour that throws you off your plan, it is SO worth it to see a great group of community members come out and show their heart and love for Heartland Family Service and the life-saving programs and services we offer each year! <—- PEAK 

PIT —-> We received some very sad news on Tuesday that our Board of Directors Chairmen suffered a fatal heart attack and suddenly passed away.  Tom was such a passionate, driven, friendly, funny, and humble community leader and we were truly blessed to have him serve on our Board for seven years before his Presidential term.  Tom was an Ambassador and loved to talk to anyone and everyone about our agency and did not miss an opportunity to share why he loves Heartland Family Service.  Our hearts and prayers go out to his wife and daughter, and though we are terribly sad, we are beyond thankful of the opportunity to know and work with him and for the countless hours spent devoted to our mission, our clients, and our staff.

Thank you so, so much for stopping by and reading these posts.  I am constantly trying to find more ways to put aside the highlight reel and to be real and raw with you.  I am just a midwest gal who loves her family, dogs, and career more than anything, with my passion for fashion integrated into all things Sara and Sabby Style!  Have an awesome day, GF’s!

Rips + Blonde Tips…

Helllloooo gals and happy Fri-Yay!  The weather this week has been completely dreary, rainy, stormy, and quite gloomy but last weekend, the sun was a’shining and I knew I had to wear this beautiful floral top!  I wore it with dark denim and flats to my coworker’s baby shower Saturday morning then opted for these ripped jeans and nude heels for a day-date with Tone.  I’m all about that bass, bout that bass… bout them ripped jeans!  Like. I. Can’t. Stop. Buying. Them.  And when they are under $45 bucks, you just can’t say no.  And it’s no surprise I’m wearing my TAudrey Sabby Style Bracelet Set!  This set comes with three bracelets but sometimes I go for a simple stack and wear the gold initial plate solo.  This is just another testament to how versatile and lovely this set is.  Be sure to use the code sabbystyle10 at check-out to get yourself a sweet discount treat!

Hi loves and happy Monday!  How was everyone’s weekend??? Mine was delightful for many reasons but I am so excited to debut some photos brought to you with our new 50mm lens!  It. Is. A. Game. Changer.  It put a major pep in my step, so I couldn’t help but feel fun and flirty in this floral sweatshirt!  I love the way the beautiful pattern popped against my white jeans (and white jeans that actually fit well and aren’t see-through, heyooo)!  In my opinion, this is a quintessential spring look and it was perfect for an easy-does-it weekend day-date with Tone!  I opted for subtle, dainty jewels like this gorgeous necklace from T+J Designs and my favorite arm party pieces!

Saturday Girl Talk + IG Round Up

IMG_7568

Hi gal pals and happy Saturday!  Today I’ve rounded up some of my favorite IG looks from the month of April along with my pit and peak of the week!

PEAK #1 // First, yesterday we got to celebrate our amazing coworker and her baby-to-be with a High Tea Shower at our boss’s casa and it was so great!  She is just glowing and I can’t wait to meet her little baby girl!  I’m sure most of you can relate to either having a little one of your own or having friends who are expecting or are new moms, but there is something so special (and it’s truly a miracle!) in watching a friend go through the stages of pregnancy and to hear the stories and moments that they are experiencing along this journey.  I’m so blessed to have the chance to share in this with her and my amazing Team of awesome coworkers!  Great people and energy make work feel not-so-much like work 🙂

PEAK #2 // This girl got herself a new camera lens!  Yes, this is a big deal for two reasons.  One, my knowledge of my camera and all of the technical jargon is really over my head and I’ve been operating at a child-like pace since getting it almost a year ago.  And two, I have been so frustrated and sad with how my pictures are translating from camera to computer to blog to Instagram.  So after much research and asking my fellow blogging beauties, it became clear that a 50mm lens will be a game-changer!  And I dinked around with it last night and already I am over the moon!  We’re shooting blog photos and I am just tickled and can’t wait to share them with all of you next week!

PIT // You guys, I don’t have one.  Literally, I sat here typing this post and drew a blank on this.  I’m sure there were plenty of tiffs and irritating moments at home and at work, but over-all, it was a productive week, I got my workouts in, my dogs got groomed, I worked really hard, and actually got some good sleep!
