Buy This, Not That: Fall Is Around the Corner

Happy Friday Eve! I’m back today sharing a few fall accessories I’ve been lusting over lately. It’s all too easy to scroll through instagram lately and find beautiful things that you want just to find out they are way out of your price range. That’s exactly what my Buy This, Not That series is all about!

I definitely love high end, designer items just as much as the next fashion blogger. However, buying a $1400 bag whenever I want isn’t my reality (if its yours, go you!!) so I have to find alternatives. I am loving this dupe from SheIn. I first posted about SheIn a long time ago and I still love this website. They have so many on trend items for amazing prices. Plus shipping is free, my favorite type of shipping! 🙂 

If cute bags aren’t your thing maybe shoes are? The mule trend is giving me life right now. I love all the different styles out there including these and these if you like a little more flair than the nude ones. What’s so great about this trend is that they are uber comfy and can be worn during late summer and all the way through fall!

Last but not least what’s a fall fashion post without mentioning some super on trend booties? Last year I bought some maroon suede booties I shared about in this post. When I saw the blush ones floating around social media I knew I needed them, now who’s going to hint that to #everydaymr?? We do have an anniversary coming up 🙂

Omaha Fashion Week: 10th Anniversary

Last week was a fun week to live in Omaha! Why, you ask? It was Omaha Fashion Week! Not only was it OFW, but it was their 10th anniversary season. 

I had the chance to attend as press Wednesday, Thursday and Friday night’s runway shows. 

It was so fun to be able to dress a little fancier, see some of my other fave bloggers and meet some new ones as well!

I absolutely loved this dress from my fave fashion truck. It fit so well and was surprisingly very comfortable! To shop this dress check it out at Hello Ruby!

My favorite looks of the ones I saw were from Thursday night’s runway. I loved Michael Drummond’s line as well as the “Fine Elements” line from Rebel Vogue and RF Look. 

Love the ethereal vibes from the Fine Elements line, like the green tulle dress above. 

And how perfect is this edgy glam look from Michael Drummond?

Friday nights runway was dedicated to the 10 years of Omaha Fashion Week. The runway show debuted some of the looks from each year of OFW’s runway. It was so fun to look back and also see the evolution of fashion over 10 years!

Loved this line from several years back with the newspaper details that the designer incorporated.

It was a great week of Omaha Fashion Week. It was so cool to see how much OFW has evolved over the past 10 years, it will be fun to see it continue to evolve over the next 10. Remember to follow me on Instagram @everydaymrsblog to follow along with my stories of events I’m attending!

To check out other fashion shows I’ve been to check out KCFW here and here, and ones from Austin here and here!

With the weather being so up and down lately it’s hard to know how to dress. I’m loving the new pieces Jill from Hello Ruby picked up in Vegas for the fall season! So many of them are easily “wear now” pieces. Either by themselves or layered.

Fall is all about flannels right? Love a fun take on a fall basic. How amazing are those grommets??

As I’ve shared so many times fall is my favorite season when it comes to fashion. I love all the details, layering and jewel tones. Hello Ruby knocked it out of the park with this one, the detail on this sweater is to die for! It also feels great on and is fairly lightweight.

And of course every fall wear now look needs some amazing coffee from Crane Coffee to go with it because #basic.

And how about the detail on this cute, simple pink tee? I think I would wear this one out! Also, you can see the grommet detail of this flannel that I was wearing in the first picture. Which of these pieces would you love to wear now?? 

P.S. All tops are linked above!

This giveaway runs through Monday, August 28th at 12pm CST. To enter find a post with one of these pics on my instagram @everydaymrsblog

Verizon Up Rewards ft. Lady Gaga

Good morning and happy hump day! I wanted to share something fun I took part of last weekend. Because of this little ol’ blog I’ve been able to do some amazing things. One of those being on tv, and last weekend going to the Lady Gaga concert and meeting her! Thanks to the new Verizon Up Rewards I was able to go backstage, take a tour, watch the soundcheck, meet Lady Gaga and of course attend the actual concert! 

If you haven’t heard, Verizon has a new rewards program. Verizon Up is a new rewards program that is breaking the mold with once-in-a-lifetime experiences, front-row tickets, Apple Music, Uber rides, sports gear, coffee and more. No points or levels required. Customers get one credit for every $300 they spend on their Verizon Wireless monthly bill. 1 credit gets you 1 reward, and some don’t even need a credit.

Before the days activities I was able to see the Verizon Up Rewards tent/stage set out in the parking lot of Century Link. At the Up Rewards tent they were sharing about the new program, had a VIP area for Verizon users and were even awarding a couple lucky people with meet and greet passes and tickets!

Unfortunately, we weren’t able to take our own photos at the meet and greet. However, they had a professional photographer who is supposed to be getting those to us in a couple weeks. Meeting Lady Gaga was super brief but cool nonetheless.

I also really enjoyed the backstage tour I had the chance to take. It was so interesting to see everything that goes into her tour, the production, set up, outfit changes etc. Her set was one of the most impressive at a concert that I’ve seen.

At the concert, there was a main stage and 3 secondary stages. These “floating UFO’s” I’m going to call them would float down and those became the walkways to the other stages. It was amazing!

You can see the walkways up in the air that I was talking about. She also had different images, live stream of the concert, and videos projected on them as well.

The dancers were super impressive as well as Lady Gaga who sang the entire time while dancing up a storm! They even danced on tilting stages with fire shooting behind them. Impressive is an understatement.

One of my favorite parts of the show had to be when she went to one of her secondary stages where her piano was.

It was just her and her piano, telling us more about her songs and the ever famous “property line” that she talked about no less than 20 times at the show.

Just me and Gaga hanging out!

Also let’s not forget about the costume changes!

My favorite part of her outfits had to be all the different boots-so cool!

Thanks again Verizon Up Rewards for this unforgettable experience! If you’re a Verizon customer make sure to check out their new program for more details. Side note, even if you’re not a huge Gaga fan her concert was one of the best I’ve been to!
