Saturday Steals [Cold Weather Knits]

Cold Weather Knits
Hi sister-friends and happy Saturday!  The temps dipped quite a bit here in Omaha this week and I found myself busting out the chunky scarves and jackets, because in the morning I could see my breath!  No bueno, I am not ready for Winter yet.  So to help us prepare for freezing weather, I’ve gathered up some super cute, and functional, winter wear pieces, all under $20!  These picks are all from Old Navy and let me say, ON has seriously stepped up their game, as of late.  I mean, did you see the lace-up pointed toe flats they are carrying? That style has been all the rage on every bloggers feet these past few months and once again, Old Navy has brought them to us at a great price-point!  I picked up the olive yellow pair, along with the black ones, and I’ve worn them each, and they are super comfy! Nope, no blisters or duchies here.  I also picked up this yellow chunky infinity scarf this past week and I love it! If you follow me on IG, then you know I am having a major mustard moment so I couldn’t pass up this bright chartreuse knit!
And guess what, if you use the code COOLSTYLE, you will receive 25% off your cold weather pieces, including sweaters, vests, coats, and all the accessories you see here!

Convertible Gloves – $10 – $13, depending on color

Chunky Knit Infinity Scarves – $14 – $17, depending on color

Popcorn Beanies – $10 – $12, depending on color

Thanks so much for reading today and have a fabulous rest of your weekend!

It’s probably no secret that I have an affinity for all things pink, ripped jeans, snakeskin heels, peplum tops, big sunglasses, and some pretty bomb.com jewelry.  This outfit combines my fashion favorites and I seriously can’t get enough!  I pulled this outfit together on a whim and really like how it all came together.  And want to know why and how I did that??? Well with the bling!  The jewelry is the literal icing on the cake!  This gorgeous Michael Kors necklace is the definiton of frosting!  I was beyond excited to partner with Michael Kors to help launch their Holiday 2015 Jewelry Line and I couldn’t be more ecstatic with how seriously fabulous each piece is.  The silver mesh-like chain and sparkling Swarovski crystals make this necklace a cut above the rest with just enough dazzle for any occasion!

This collection may be deemed “holiday” but let me stress that these necklaces, earrings, and bracelet can be worn beautifully all year long!

Girly Meets Glam is how I would describe these mesh and crystal earrings!  And I knew they would be the perfect accessory for this look that featured a flirty hemmed pink dress and my cropped black moto jacket! Just enough cool girl edge while remaining true to my pink-loving and colorful self!

The matching mesh gold and Swarovski crystals necklace and bracelet brought instant polish to an otherwise casual (and very Fall-esque) outfit of a plaid shirt and cozy sweater!  You gals know that I always rock a very stacked wrist, and this bracelet might be the perfect addition to my collection.  I’ve been wearing it every day! I mix and match it with my other favorite bracelets and my favorite two-toned boyfriend watch.  When in #ootd doubt?  Throw on the biggest sunnies you own, grab your favorite bag, and top it all off with some serious bling, bling!

The juxtaposition of mesh & metal paired with delicately placed stones allows this necklace to be styled in a thousand different ways.  As you can see, there is nothing “holiday party” about these looks.  In fact, these are outfits that can be worn all year round and for a variety of occasions!  That is why I stand behind jewelry investment pieces because they truly are timeless, of the highest quality, and never go out of style.  (<— Having a T-Swift moment right here)!

Thank you to Michael Kors for sponsoring this post!  All opinions are my own!

Staple Stripes + Classic Vest…

Hey gals and happy Thursday!  I have to admit that I am not great about wearing vests.  Like, I want to be a vest person so badly!  And I admit that I have quite a few of them, but for whatever reason I just don’t seem to automatically reach for them when putting the finishing touches on my outfit.  I think it partly has to do with that I am on the bustier side of life for my petite 5″2 frame, so the idea of adding layers (aka bulk) to my body doesn’t seem appealing!

However, life. changed…. Introduce this fabulous black vest/sleeveless trench!  It is sleek, streamlined, and was made to compliment a woman’s body.  The cut, even worn unbelted and open, is not large and baggy, but has a nice tailored look!  Plus it’s 40% off, making it under $54!  This is a classic closet staple that can transition from season to season quite seamlessly and it won’t ever go out of style!

I wanted to keep it casual so I opted for a basic striped tunic tee, black fleece lined leggings, the gray booties I wear all the time, and my very favorite reversible tote!

Better With Friends…

What is better with friends, you may ask? Everything.  Today marks one week until our GIRLS NIGHT OMAHA event #2 and I can’t help but feel all sorts of feels!  But mostly I am feeling a deep sense of thankfulness.  I am beyond thankful that a.) Michelle is/has been my girl long before we both fell into our passions for blogging and photography aka being our own bosses, b.) That we get to pursue our dreams together, c.) That we are doing big things together, professionally and personally, and d.) That she will stand by my side when Tony and I say “I Do”.  Near or far (literally, she moved to Orlando a few years ago so we were very far!), we have remained thick as thieves and we could always pick up right where we left off.  Her passion and goals and the excitement and vision she has for not only herself, but for me and for so many others, is down right contagious.  She’s one bad ass chick and I am feeling beyond grateful that God put her in my life.

New to the blog??? Here’s the back Story on Girls Night Omaha and how/why Michelle and I started this journey..

Launched in August of 2015, Girl’s Night Omaha began as the brain child of fashion and lifestyle bloggers, Michelle Bazis and Sara Sabaliauskas. With an exciting idea and a lot of heart, we saught out to develop a series of custom events catered to community interest, while providing an opportunity to celebrate local businesses and entrepreneurs. With the support of friends and fellow-bloggers, the first ever Girl’s Night Omaha was a major hit! Michelle and I have already begun working on future Girl’s Night Omaha events and look forward to bringing it to communities all over the United States (and the rest of the world)!

Hey gals and Happy Monday! How was everyone’s weekend?  We had gorgeous weather here this past weekend with the leaves changing colors and are slowly beginning to fall.  The mornings and evenings have a chill in the air, but the afternoons have been sunny and warm, which is the perfect opportunity to head to my favorite outdoor spot to do some blogging! And when I head out the door, I tend to throw my entire life into a large purse, but there is never enough room for my laptop! And since I often blog & do blog business from coffee shops and hidden outdoor gems, I knew I needed to step up my tote game.  Enter this seriously fabulous large tote bag from Veeshee!  This online store is SO cool because each piece is completely customizable, made perfectly just for you!  I opted for the Bogatta Bag in black linen with camel leather and an inside leopard print lining! And you know I had to throw a monogram on there 🙂

If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I change my handbags almost daily, and I always get asked how I manage to do this before work everyday??? The trick is to compartmentalize all your key essentials into smaller bags.  This allows for me to simply grab the smaller bags and my wallet and simply toss in my purse of the day! It just so happened that I was in major need of a new little bag, so I picked out the Kato Cosmo Bag in a Black & Tan Ikat print with matching leopard lining on the inside, just like my tote! The Kato Cosmo Bag is big enough (and has an inside pocket) so I can fit all of my lip glosses, concealers, travel lotion, headache medicine, bandaids, travel toothbrush & toothpaste, and floss!

Never heard of Veeshee? No problem, let me fill you in!  At Veeshee, they make it easy to choose your own fabrics, patterns, and leather and each piece is made on-demand in their Athens, GA facility… That’s right, handmade in the USA!  As I can see (and you will too), the quality is top-notch and each unique product is made with care.  The magic starts when you first visit the online design studio, and from there you are guided through the step by step process.  It’s incredibly easy, and fun, to create custom bags and monogrammed baby gifts, choosing from luxurious fabrics to create something you’ll cherish for years to come.

And because I know Mondays can be rough and tough, I have teamed up with the gals from Veeshee to bring you the opportunity to win a one-of-a-kind, unique, and totally customizable bag!  Just head over to my Instagram (@sarasab) to enter!

Can’t wait to see if you are the winner and want to get your bag today? No prob! Use code SABBYSTYLE for a 10% discount on your custom pieces!

Instagram Roundup!

Hey sisters and happy Friday!  Today I’ve rounded up my recent, and most popular, IG posts to answer your questions, provide sizing info, and link exact and similar items for each look!  You’ll also notice that many of these pieces are ones that I wear on a constant rotation.  And that is because I’m a firm believer in low cost-per-wear and getting the most bang for my buck!  Be sure you are following along on Instagram (@sarasab) for my daily outfits and get your email registered over at LiketoKnow.it where you can shop my Instagram looks directly through your email!

This. Dress.  I can’t even express how much I love it.  Seriously, the cut and fit are super flattering (I’m wearing a size Small, fyi).  The length is definitely work appropriate, but the ruffle hem adds that pop of fun & flirty that you should look for.  Who says work wear has to be dull and boring?!  Plus the spotted print in black and white makes it a classic piece yet can be paired with a ton of different accessories!

You know I love a heavy stack of bracelets, and when I found these beauties from Bauble Boutique, I was in heaven.  The price points are oh-so reasonable and the quality is fantastic.  I wear them literally everyday!  Be sure to use the code Sara20 for a discount treat!

You had me at faux suede and elbow patches!  Suede, faux or real (I prefer faux), is totally in this Fall and I most certainly jumped on that band wagon.  This skirt is the perfect shade of brown and the button detail gives it a little pizazz that I look for in otherwise basic pieces.  [NOT PICTURED]… This sweater has faux suede elbow patches.  And they match perfectly with my skirt! Match made.  Life made.  I threw on these mules and my favorite striped satchel to keep it feeling fresh!

I can’t say I own a pair of Loubs… yet, but I know I would love to Love, Loubs, oh and Lattes! How cute is this tee? It’s from my favorite boutique, Le Boutique Shop.  It is definitely more form-fitting and I am wearing a size XL for a more looser fit.  Don’t have a pink blazer? Get one! This jacket added instant chic to a basic b ensemble.

Every girl should own a LBD and this little number takes the cake because it has pockets!  And I am a believer in not showing it all (unless it’s 100 degrees out) so I love it when a shorter length dress has long sleeves.  I will be pairing this dress with tights, leopard booties, and a utility vest in the coming weeks as the temps start to cool down.  Not to mention how fab my neon yellow bag will look with this dress and a pair of OTK boots!

Remember what I just said, about not showing it all? Well this past weekend it was gorgeously warm and in the high 70s during the day, but definitely cooled down as the sun set.  We were headed to afternoon HH and I didn’t hesitate to bust out the jean shorts one more time.  But realizing that we are in-fact in Fall, I opted for this cream jacquard sweatshirt to balance out the bare legs.  Add gray accessories and my go-to monogram necklace = instant day-date attire!

You. Guys.  I am so excited to share that we are planning a GIRLS NIGHT OMAHA event #2! On November 4th, at Four Sisters Boutique, we’ll be falling in love with layers and talking about pattern mixing, loving layers, what’s in for Fall & Winter, and not to mention, wine & shopping!  And we would not be able to event think about having a second event if the first Girls Night Omaha event hadn’t been a smashing success!  I still can’t really fathom the idea that stylish ladies from all walks of life are interested in hearing what I have to say.  So please know that I am humbled and grateful to have the opportunity to share my passion for fashion with all of you!

And if you aren’t familiar with the event series, GIRLS NIGHT OMAHA, which my BFF Michelle and I created… It’s a FUN & INSPIRING social event catering to community interests while supporting local businesses and giving back to local non-profits. Girl’s Night Omaha’s Spring event and now our Fall event, have been held at Four Sisters Boutique, which is an awesome place to shop because who doesn’t love promoting small businesses and business women who empower and support one another?! These events are focused on seasonal fashion and styling trends. GIRLS NIGHT OMAHA bring friends and fashionistas together for an evening of sips, snacks, private shopping, giveaways, and styling with a special demonstration by local fashion experts!

LOVE IS GREATER.  Such a beautiful message.  This raglan, off-the-shoulder, sweatshirt from Hello, Grace was created with the heart in mind.  This particular saying is near and dear to my heart because for me, love is the most important gift we can not only give to others, but give to ourselves.  And we aren’t stopping there!  10% of every sale is donated to Love Bought International. They are a Christian organization that is currently in the process of building an orphanage in Bogata, Columbia.

And because I LOVE ALL OF YOU, we are teaming up to give away a Love is Greater sweatshirt to one lucky lady! Head over to my Instagram, @sarasab, to enter!
