Holiday Gift Guide for HER!

Holiday Gift Guide for HER

Hi gals and happy Tuesday! Can you believe that Thanksgiving is just two days away??? Where the heck did this month go? Though I hate how fast time passes by, I am pretty darn excited to eat my face off on Thursday and to begin decking our halls for Christmas! I used to be quite the shopping procrastinator (like Christmas Eve) when it came to finding the perfect gifts for my loved ones.  And after a few hectic experiences and swearing to myself I would never wait to the last minute again, I have finally got my buns in gear to get my shopping done early!  I have the most adorable mom and sister, plus some pretty fabulous galpals, so I created this gift guide with them in-mind.  Most everything you see here is under $50, plus free shipping! I can’t get over those emoji earrings (like hello, perfect for your favorite social media lovin’ lady in your life) and those black booties are under $75! Not to mention those darling accent pillows and glitter stemless wineglasses are not only darling, but inexpensive and ideal for a cozy homebody and/or wine lover!

Tell me what’s on your Christmas wish list!

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!

Anthropologie Weekend Sale!

 Good morning and happy Saturday to you!  How was your week? Mine was quite busy and jam packed.  And how am I going to reward myself for my exertion??? By shopping the Anthropologie Weekend Sale, of course!  It is a rare, and glorious day, when that email comes through your inbox announcing that Anthro is giving us 20% off because they know that not everyone has an unlimited budget and we work hard for our moolah! Now, I know what you may be thinking.  Girl, I can’t shop at Anthro, it’s too expensive! And trust me, I feel you sister!  That is why I only shop Anthro when they have their sales!  I’ve rounded up my favorite pieces and hope to add a few to my wardrobe this weekend… especially that embellished top & gray sweater.  You can never have too many comfy sweaters and sassy blouses!

Use code FALLFUN at checkout and happy shopping!
Anthro Weekend Sale

Pink & Blush ombre scarf // Earrings // Gray Tunic Sweater // Plaid Infinity Scarf

Striped Sweater // Embellished Short sleeve Sweater // Black Booties // Denim // Lace & Stripe Tee

Fringe, Flare and Flannel…

Fall Favorites

Tan Fringe Booties // Burgundy Fringe Heels // Necklace // Flare 1 // Flare 2 // Flare 3

Flannel Cape // Flannel Crop Top // Plaid Satchel // Plaid Wallet

Baby Lips (Cherry Me) & Revlon Dark Stain (Crush) // Revlon Pink Stain (Sweetheart) & Baby Lips (Pink Punch)


You guys, I am looooooving all things fringe, flare, and flannel this Fall! Say that three times fast.   The 70’s are making a major comeback this season and I’m secretly loving it.  I always joke with my parents that I was born in the wrong era because my favorite bands and music are straight out of the 60’s & 70’s!  I love the pairing of plaids and flannels with high-waisted flare denim and do you know the cherry on top??? FRINGE! I love it.  I’m definitely not hippie-dippie but I am dabbling in this trend!


And if you are hesitant about pulling the trigger on a pair of designer jeans, rest easy knowing that you can’t go wrong with high-waisted jeans.  They are timeless, SO flattering, and are great in all four seasons!  Think boots in the fall/winter and darling wedge platforms in the spring/summer!  I prefer a medium to dark wash, as I find them to be versatile as they can be dressed up or down; great for a variety of occasions!


What are you girls loving this Fall?  Thanks so much for reading and have yourselves an awesome day!

Affordable FALL Bags…

Affordable FALL Bags
Black (reversible) Tote // Spotted Clutch // Yellow Clutch (sold out in this color! But I linked a great transitional yellow clutch here!) // White & Black Satchel
Pink Fringe Tote // Tan Fringe Crossbody // Black Beaded Clutch // Nude Envelope Clutch (Gosh, this item is sold out, too! But have no fear, I linked a fabulous dupe that I own!)

Hi gals and happy Friday! Today I’ve rounded up some pretty fabulous Fall bags that are all affordable!!!  The feedback from the Sabby Style Survey was pretty great and those responses will really help me focus on topics that YOU want to see and know about.  So, ask and you shall receive!  Many of you wanted to see more affordable bags because, hey, who doesn’t?!? I ball on a budget (most of the time, sorry Tone) so I am always on the look-out for steals and style dupes to soften the blow to my checking account while keeping me current and on-top of the latest and greatest trends!

ALL BUT ONE of these bags, clutches, and satchels are under $100! ( I think the only one that is more than $100 is the tan fringe crossbody).  And you may be asking, why the heck is there a neon yellow clutch? Wellllll, if you know me, and I’m pretty sure you do, then you know I love me some bright yellow and find that it transitions with ease into Fall.  One of my favorite pairings is a neon bag with an all natural outfit!  And blush pink is very in for Fall, too!

If you guys have any input, feedback, or ideas for what else you would like to see, please do not hesitate to reach out at any time!

Summer Sale??? More like a Fall Staple Sale!

IMG_5652Nordstrom Summer Sale

Hi sister-friends and happy Friday! So Nordstrom is having their end-of-summer sale and all of these pieces you see are on major sale! But don’t be fooled, this “summer sale” is really a fall-staple sale! I don’t know about you, but I don’t normally wear sweaters and blazers in the hot months of summer (umm, hello jeans shorts and white t-shirts!), so I think it’s pretty silly that majority of the thousands of items that are included in this sale are just what you need for complete Fall chicness & style! But hey, this Nordstrom sale gal is not complaining!



I hope everyone has a lovely Labor Day weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by!

TODAY IS THE DAY.  THE DAY THAT EVERYONE AND THEIR MOTHER (which is the case) can shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!  Okay.  I’m not going to beat around the bush and say “oh man, I can’t decide what items to get because I can’t get them all” because to be frank, I did in fact get everything you are seeing her.  Before you go judging (hey, we all do, we’re human and God still loves us!), in my defense, I did a huge closet clean out and sold well more than what I actually spent.  Which is why it took me a while to finally pull the trigger because I knew I had to sell, sell, sell and part with items to make room for new! And, now that I feel I am fully stocked up for Fall & Winter, I plan to go on a no-shopping stint for the next few months.  So, if you see me talking about sales, new items, and the “oh I must have this” stuff, give me grief and remind me of this blog post! Hey, if it’s writing then I have to stick to it 🙂

Okay, so moving past the first stages of grief, I am now blissfully in acceptance because you guys, I am ready for Fall, ya’ll! I kept adding and removing things from my shopping cart, which helps me really think about what I truly want, and these are the pieces that I kept coming back to over and over.  I’m all about the black, earth neutrals, and soft tones, as of late, which you can clearly see from the picture above, but you know I have my punchy, bright and colorful accessories that I will add to my looks to make it Sabby!

Are you having trouble deciding what to get? Well I can relate, so let me share what I kept in mind while making my purchases.  1.) Fit, Fit, Fit.  I know what does, and doesn’t, look good on my body type.  So while I see so many fab blogging friends rocking some fierce things, I have to stop myself from getting it for myself because I know that it just won’t flatter my body.  Like boyfriend jeans for example.  It must be my petite frame and larger chest that makes these suppose-to-be laid back, cool girl jeans, I just look like I am wearing my man’s baggy jeans! Which is why I went with the olive, stretchy denim with mild rips & tears that are a medium rise.  These kinds of jeans flatter and that I cannot say no to!  2.) Tops that can be dressed up and down.  Thankfully I am in a line of work that does not require super corporate attire, so I look for pieces that I can wear to the office and on date-night.  I love to wear things over and over (as we should) so I have to be sure I can come up with at least 5 ways to wear it before I even buy it!  And 3.) Do I need another bag? Purses are one of my weaknesses which is why I spent three weeks debating on this pink/taupe, reversible, tote! Not because of the price tag (which is under $50 btw!), but because I know I don’t need just another bag.  But a tote, that I do need.  And it will blend perfectly with the soft blush and neutral tones I am loving right now.  And it will hold all my shit! Hey, real talk here 🙂

Thanks so much for reading today, I know it was lengthy, but it means the world to me.  Don’t forget to leave your comments and let me know what you are planning to get for yourselves! And tag me on IG, too!

Nordstrom ANNIVERSARY Sale

Anni Sale

You guys, it. is. finally. here.  THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE!  I can’t even.  Today marks early access for Nordy card members (p.s. click here to sign up! I signed up for the debit card so it’s not a major CC, as it’s linked directly to my checking account, like a Target card… I know you have one) and you know I could not not get early access to this shiz.  I have been stock piling items in my cart in hopes that they go on sale! Now is the time to get those designer goodies you’ve been eying.  I might have 17 things in my cart.  No judging! I won’t get them all… unless they all on sale! Like I passed on the Anthro 4th of July sale so I could snag everything in my Nordy shopping cart! Yep, I’m dedicated.

My style is evolving and going through a season of change, so you may notice that many of these items are neutral (and black, say whaaaa? I know you’re thinking, Sara you never wear black and I knowwww! Hence the season of change) but I feel that what I’ve been drawn to lately are pieces that are a bit more sophisticated, sleek, simple, (think more Nordstrom/Shopbop/Anthro and less Old Navy/Jcrew) but of course with a dash of color sprinkled in (see that pink blazer?!).  Don’t worry, I haven’t thrown out all of my wardrobe! I just did a major editing session in which I parted with pieces that aren’t aligned with my new “season”… so stay tuned for an IG closet sale! 🙂

Now if I can’t get everythinggggg in my cart (which, hello, I do live on planet earth and ball on a nonprofit budget) I know I will be getting a handful of things that I have been patiently waiting to get!  First is the two-tone gold and silver MK watch.  Second, the black moto jacket.  Third, pink boyfriend blazer.  Fourth, the luggage color mules.  Fifth would be the olive green denim, and last but not least, the pink/tan tote!

I cannot wait to see and hear what you gals are crushing over and end up purchasing! Be sure to tag me on IG so I can see your picks (and so I can get them, too!).

And many are included in this sale!  We are headed to Hawaii in less than a month so I have the sun and beach on my mind.  And how stinkin’ cute is that Aloha beach towel?!  I’ll be scooping up that, along with the green/blue pom pom scarf, floral sunnies, that super cute graphic tee, and the floral cross body bag!

Saturday Coffee + Tory Burch SALE!

TB SALE
Happy Saturday!  So for today’s post, I am sharing some major swoon-worthy Tory Burch pieces that are on major sale right now!  Use code SPRING to take up to 30% off your purchase (details/breakdown found on website).  I am going to be snagging that darling polka dot pouch, pineapple bag, and the Patent Miller Sandals in Sand!  I’ve been waiting, and waiting, for this sale to come around so take it from me, now is the time to jump on those items that you have been eyeing because these sales are the very best time to buy!  Make sure you post and tag me so I can see the goodies you get!
PIT // Waking up before the sun rises is for the birds!  Yes, I am trying to be a morning person, but gosh dang, I’m not! Once I’m up and at ’em, I’m fine and I love coordinating great community events for my job, but this little lady needs about 9 hours of sleep to function and rising before the break of dawn just isn’t my gig.  SO… if you have any tips on how you get your buns out of bed and can turn me into an early bird, I would love to hear it!
PEAK // So every month I facilitate a meeting with a group of community members who serve on a committee for our agency in which they assist us with fundraising for local programs, spread awareness and really are our brand ambassadors!  And they are awesome people!  This past year I have truly gotten to know them and have grown so fond of not only this select group of people, but really everyone in the community.  That is hands down my favorite part of my job – building relationships and connecting with people.  So this past Thursday one of our committee members brought me in a gift just because she thought I was doing good things and appreciated all I did for them.  <— Insert fuzzy heart moment right here.  It pretty much summed up why I love my job and how thankful I am that I have the opportunity to work and connect with such great people.  God is Good!
Thanks so much for stopping by and have an awesome Saturday, Girlfrans!
