#GirlsNightOmaha is less than a week away and I couldn’t be more excited! I shared my experiences in this post but today I wanted to highlight a few tips for the big night. Also, I’m going to once again give the biggest shout-out to the 2 babes behind this entire thing…THANK YOU Michelle Bazis (check out her amazing empire here) & Sara Sabaliauskas for creating this community. You both have a drive and passion that is nothing short of contagious. And I can’t forget to direct y’all to Sara Spooner & Four Sisters Boutique who is once again is our host location {They’re online boutique launches Nov. 1 so stay tuned!}

Advice for First-timers:
 Mingle! Smile! Dress Fashionably! Enjoy yourself! It may look like everyone came with their bestie, but I promise there are a number of ladies who came on their own. Introduce yourself to someone new 🙂 Come early, stay late, chat with a few of our awesome hosts or sponsors, grab a snack, and shop ’til you drop!

Questions for Sara: Sara of Sabby Style is seriously everything. From her style expertise to her bubbly personality, I can’t imagine anyone not being totally in love with her! She WANTS to answer your questions, so come prepared. Wondering how to mix patterns or how to take your summer dress into the Fall or how to layer up while still looking cute, Sara will fill you in on all of that and more! Feel free to email questions prior to the November 4 event (sabbystyleblog@gmail.com) or ask them live during the Q&A session!

Favorite Fall Looks: Besides looking forward to the awesome fellowship & fun of the event itself, I am also REALLY looking forward to getting dressed for it. While I haven’t picked out my outfit quite yet, there’s like a 99% chance these boots (similar, less expensive versionhere) will be making their first appearance this Fall for it. I’m also loving every blanket scarf (1, 2, 3) I’ve seen and can’t get enough of the flare trend (uhmmmm, can we talk about thesebabies!?) Oh, and long cardigans like this one? Give me all of them.

Charity: Don’t forget to bring items for the featured charity, The Salvation Army Coat Drive!

Last but not least, a huge THANKS to the amazing sponsors that are helping to make next Thursday not only happen but hopefully also a huge success:

Dress for success; that’s what everyone always says, right? Well I think is true in all aspects of our day, including our workouts. When I workout the first thing I think about is function {i.e. good support, modesty, material}, but not too far behind that I’m also thinking about fashion. While you will NOT see […]

I really try to keep my style original and unique to match my personality but there are some times when I can’t help but follow what is popular. I spied this printed cape on the ‘sneak peek’ pages for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale late this summer and immediately put it on my ‘want’ list. Once the […]

I’m all about looks that don’t involve pants. #nopantsparty Don’t get me wrong, I love my denim, but the first thing I do when I get home from a long day is take off my pants {and bra 😉 } off. Such a freeing feeling! Any time I can combine a lack of pants with […]

For today’s #WorkoutWednesday post, I’m sharing a quick inside peek into the bandwagon I jumped on 6 weeks ago and am totally/completely obsessed with: OrangeTheory. While I don’t feel that the OTF following is nearly as cult-like as the SoulCycle or Pure Barre classes I’ve taken {don’t get me wrong – I’m a fan of both […]

Shades of wine, burgundy, and merlot are all over bags, hats, and clothing items this Fall and the varying hues made me happy every time I see them. There’s a warmth to them yet an edgy vibe that is also a bit unexpected. When I was in NYC in August, I had a chance to stop […]

Leather can be a difficult material to wear; too much and you can appear ‘biker chick’ or poor quality and it can look tacky. Once you find the right leather piece, or pieces, they seamlessly become timeless staples in your closet that you can wear for years to come. When I noticed this leather skirt (I […]

 Monotony and I are not friends. I get bored quickly and need variety in almost all aspects of my life. I’m also extremely, and I mean extremely, competitive. Not only am I competitive with others but maybe even more so with myself. While that can be beneficial in a lot of realms, it can also […]

It doesn’t get more basic than a date night at an Apple Orchard, but I don’t even care. Ever since Kyle and I discovered Small’s Fruit Farm located about 35 minutes northeast of Omaha 2 years ago, we’ve turned it into a tradition.  There’s a nostalgia I love about pulling up to the grounds that […]
