Hi sister-friends and happy Saturday!  I apologize for being m.i.a. on ze blog and Instagram the past few days!  I unfortunately was dealing with a 2 day crippling migraine and was seriously down for the count.  I swear I took an entire bottle of Ibuprofen and nothing helped except for sleeping it off.  Even after sleeping for 13 hours straight on Thursday night, I still woke up yesterday with a lingering pain on the right side of my head.  Why!!!!  Migraines ruin everything.  And when they come on, the only thing I can do is try and sleep, which makes me so mad because it feels lazy and unproductive.  Ain’t nobody got time for that!   On Thursday I had an awesome job opportunity to style an editorial shoot for Wedding Essentials magazine, and despite feeling like I was going to pass out half the time, it was the most amazing experience.  The theme of the shoot was rehearsal dinner looks for the bride, and seeing as I’m a bride-to-be, and I myself am shopping for such an occasion, it was the perfect fit and I’m obsessed with the looks we went with!  I can’t wait to share the final results from the magazine with you all!

Thankfully I’m on the mend and plan to make full use of my weekend to make up for lost time being down in the dumps for two straight days.  The agenda for today includes: Boot Camp at DeVetter Fitness in the morning, a visit to the Cox store (our internet has been HORRIBLE!), and then some shopping and eating with Tone at one of the outdoor malls in West Omaha – we’ve got gift cards!  Then once we’re done there, we’ll probably swing by the store to get items for dinner aka a take n bake pizza (no judging please) and we’ll just cook at home and watch the baseball game!  I’ve got another busy week coming up, so I plan to take it easy tonight and get to bed as soon as the game is over so I can be super duper productive on Sunday while Tony golfs!

You know what else is in the lineup for my weekend & the beautiful weather we’re experiencing in Omaha? PS – it was 83 and sunny yesterday!  This gorgeous olive green bell sleeve beauty, that’s what!  I am obsessed with this blouse.  Bell sleeves are all the rage right now and I have to say that I’m a huge fan of this trend!  Why have boring plain sleeves when you can have sassy sleeves?  This shade of green is one of my favorite jewel tone colors and is perfect for every season, in my opinion!  It can stand alone with jeans and heels for milder temps, but when the cold weather rolls in, just add a moto jacket and ankle booties for an edgy layered look!  You’ve heard me say time and time again that versatility is so important to me when it comes to my wardrobe, and this bell sleeved babe definitely meets that criteria:

1. The cut of this blouse is uber flattering and has a lower hemline in the back, which makes it suitable for leggings.

2. You can wear it loose and flowy like I did here.

3. You can rock a front tuck with your jeans.

4. Or you can wear it completely tucked into a pencil skirt for work.  Just throw on your blazer for a professional workwear ensemble!

This blouse is from one of my favorite local shops, Four Sisters Boutique, and is 15% off with code SABBY15, making it just under $36!
