Hi friends and happy Tuesday!  Whoa, 2 blog posts in two days… Who dis?!? What can I say, I’ve got my blogging mojo back and I’m so excited for today’s post because a.) this top is gorgeous and b.) I’ve got a few life updates to share with you!  So before we dive into life tidbits, let’s chat about this floral beauty!

I wish I could have you feel the fabric through this blog post haha because it’s soft and slinky, which means it doesn’t wrinkle and drapes perfectly!  I adore the dramatic sleeves and how they flow with every movement.  My favorite kinds of outfits are ones that are easy to wear but have a bit of drama or make a slight statement without looking too done up or overdressed!  This top checks all those boxes – from the turquoise hues, the tropical floral print, and the off the shoulder neckline – this top embodies everything an easy breezy Summer top should be!

BONUS!!!  My friends at Amelia’s Boutique are giving my Sabby Style readers an exclusive discount code – sabbystylejune20 – that allows you to take 20% off your entire purchase!


LIFE UPDATE

As I’m sure you’ve noticed (at least I hope haha) that I haven’t been blogging as much as I used to.  It’s not because I don’t love my job and my amazing readers, but rather I’ve been busy tackling other life things and I haven’t made desk time a big priority.  And as a result, loosing my gusto for putting fingers to keyboard to bust out those blog posts!  But trust me when I say that I have greatly missed connecting with you multiple times a week and that little break was just what my heart needed, because I’m feeling refreshed and rejuvenated! So thank you for your understanding and patience while I sorted some things out!

So what’s been going on behind the scenes over at Sabby Style headquarters…

HOME REMODEL – We’re embarking on a huge renovation – hopefully starting demo next month – so we’ve been in the process of getting bids and picking out kitchen cabinets and countertops!  Which is fun, but oh so daunting.  And so expensive!  We’re currently in a great cabinet debate, as I cannot for the life of me decide if I want white or light gray cabinets!  And then there’s the decision to have the cabinets one color and the island another.  I seriously change my mind every.single.day.  Thankfully we know what countertops we want (marble-esque quartz)… one thing I can actually check off my list!  And don’t even get me started on flooring.  I know we’re doing some kind of hard wood, but unsure if we’re going to go with real wood, engineered wood, some kind of laminate wood, etc.  Obviously if budget wasn’t a factor (a girl can dream, right?!), we would automatically go with real hard wood, but since we’re putting new floor through out the entire first floor, and only a blip of that will be carpet, it’s a big job which equals big quotes!  So needless to say we’re torn.  Have any of you replaced your flooring and if so, what did you go with? Did you weigh multiple options like we are?  Any insight is greatly appreciated!

FRANKLIN’S BIG HEART – When the doctor said “Franklin has a big heart” and I responded with a sweet, proud voice of “I know he does”… and then you realize that having a big heart in this circumstance is a very bad thing.  Last month we were frequent flyers at the vet as we learned our sweet 12 year old Shih Tzu, Franklin, has congestive heart failure.  My own heart literally broke into a million pieces!  Franklin is my baby angel puppy and I’m quite obsessed with him.  He was an early 21st birthday present from my parents and we’ve truly grown up together.  I was also not at the best place in my life and was going through an abusive relationship, and I believe that Franklin saved my life and gave me purpose.  He’s mama’s sweet boy (even though he sure does love his daddy aka the “Pack Leader” as Tony refers to himself haha) and I dread the day he’s no longer with us.  Thankfully the medication the vet prescribed has helped quite a bit with his energy and now I call him my Spry Guy!  We’re just trying to age gracefully around here!

KANSAS CITY GETAWAY – Last month we went to KC for four days and we sure did have the best time!  It’s great being just shy of three hours away from Kansas City, so we try to make the quick trip there as often as we can.  While we were there, we went to the Yankee vs. Royals baseball game (Go Yanks!), saw Randy Houser at the outdoor concert at KC Live! Block, shopped at Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, and the Legends Outlet Mall, explored and patio hopped through Westport, bar crawled around downtown KC, and ate one too many slices of Za from Pizza Bar at Power & Light!  We’re headed back to KC the first weekend of August for the Billy Currington concert!  And of course some more shopping and pizza haha.

Thanks so much for reading and I hope you babes have an amazing day! xoxo
