Hi sister-friends and happy Friday!!!  How was everyone’s week? Ours was super busy-bee with work events and we had our first snow fall!  Yes, you are reading that right.  And it also rained cats and dogs, hailed golfballs, and we had lightening strike our neighbor’s tree.  Yeah, super bizarro weather!

Anywho, it’s no secret that I love every single shade of pink, so when I saw this super cozy pink sweater from Chicwish, I seriously couldn’t resist!  It is such a pretty shade of pastel pink and it has that over-sized feel without looking like you’re wearing a potato sack.  And not only are blush tones very in for Fall & Winter, this little number will transition flawlessly into Spring.  Making it the perfect addition to any outfit on those cool April days! I paired it with this darling tee and super adorable (and comfy!) booties from Peter Pyper and my favorite pair of light-wash ripped jeans.  It was a casual yet chic outfit for a coffee date in Dundee with Michelle and Heidi!

Speaking of floral tee and booties, I am hosting a giveaway on Instagram with Peter Pyper to bring one lucky lady the chance to win their choice between the tee or the shoes!  Head on over and join in on the fun!!! (@sarasab)

Hey girls!  When a shirt perfectly describes how you feel approximately 50% of your waking hours, one must get it, wear it as many times as socially acceptable, and when someone asks you why your a crab apple, you just point to your shirt, and say, enough said.  LOL! But legit, I am hungry all. the. time.  I eat about 5-6 times a day and when hunger strikes, I seriously do get testy!  So the message here is that hangry-ness happens and no one is safe!  This Hangry Tee from Sheinside.com is just under $9 and can most definitely be dressed up or down.  I’ve worn it as seen here, but have also paired it with leggings, a big cozy sweater, and my white chucks for a Starbucks afternoon this past weekend!

I love dressing up simple tops and graphic tees with a great structured blazer and my more-holes-than-fabric favorite pair of jeans!  The fitted jacket and pointed-toe heels take this from basic to date-night chic in a blink of an eye!  When wearing a top that has a saying or vivid print, I like to keep my jewelry simple, but that doesn’t mean understated!  The beautiful necklace and silver bangle bracelets from Musana Jewelry were the perfect match for this neutral look!  Musana’s Mission is very simple…Helping women become empowered and strong while providing fierce fashion.  Their artisans work full-time at a workshop in Lugazi, Uganda. For most of them, it’s the first time they’ve received a steady salary. The financial stability of employment allows artisans to provide their children with a stable home, nutritious food, medical care and an education.

My necklace and bangles are fresh off their Fall line! Be sure to check out the rest of the collection and know you are giving back while rockin’ your fabulous jewelry!

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!

Plaid + Cozy Knit Sweater

I have officially fallen in love with layers in this plaid and cozy knit combo!  Not all oversized sweaters are created equal but this one, well it broke the mold.  It is a warm neutral that literally pairs lovely with everything!  I’m a short gal, so I am a bit leery about large sweaters because sometimes they seem to swallow me up and all that is left are these tiny little legs and feet – not cute, not chic.  But this sweater fits great and I love the two different fabrics used on the sleeves and pockets, which gives it some dimension and interest!  It is a one size item but don’t let that deter you because I think it would look lovely on every body and every size!

You can layer it like I did with your favorite plaid flannel shirt or take it to casual town with your go-to plain white tee and some boyfriend jeans.  Throw on a pair of leopard heels or flats for an instant outfit! (use code INTHEFAM for 25% off these leopard flats & leopard heels)!

Hi gals! How fun is this painted wall?!? Omaha has some seriously pretty sweet gems like these hidden all around town (well, the closer you get to downtown) and I knew this had to be the background when shooting this oh-so super duper cute pink dress from Chicwish!  You know when you try something on and it feels like it was meant for you? Well that is how I feel in this dress.  I personally prefer a high neckline (I don’t like my chest!) and this dress has just that.  And the length is perfect because it off-sets the high neckline with the ruffle hem keeping it flirty and fun!  It was chilly outside and I jumped on the chance to bust out this black jacket!  I raved about it in this blog post, and I am still swooning.

PS – I just found out that this pink dress is sold out and will not be restocked, so I have linked three other perfectly perfect pink dresses here, here, and here!

Dream, Believe, Achieve

Dream. Believe. Achieve.  What a fabulous message!  Things have been a bit cray cray around here [if you are new to this blog, quick update – our youngest dog, Roger, is diabetic and has developed cataracts in both eyes requiring major (ly expensive) surgery, my manfriend of 7.5 years and I recently got engaged, wedding planning, blog business & blog thangs blowing up (all good things!), my full-time job is super busy (life of an event planner!), and we are renovating our house] and I have been praying, praying, and praying some more for peace, balance, and the wisdom to make the right decisions for my family and future while following my dreams.  So when I saw this light-weight sweatshirt, I knew it had to be mine and I knew I needed to share it with all of you!

This shirt was perfect for an afternoon downtown hanging with two very cool chicks because they both inspire and encourage me to Dream. Believe. and Achieve.  They are creative, smart, funny, and kind and they fill my love tank up to the brim.  Michelle (left) is my go-to photographer for all things blog and life, but to have Heidi there (on the right), shooting Michelle, shooting me, was so neat!

You know when you meet people and you have that “ah-hah moment” and you know that good things are happening and you are in the exact spot you were meant to be in at this phase in life?  I had that moment last Sunday with these two.  And my shirt says just that!
