The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale-Capsule Wardrobe Outfits

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale-Capsule Wardrobe Outfits 1502 556 Tammy Caciola

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

It’s that time of year when we all have the chance to stock up for our fall closets at significant discounts at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Your Nordstrom card is your ticket to savings! A Norstrom card let you access this sale 1-week earlier before it goes public. One of the many benefits of having a Nordstrom credit card! Apply here if you haven’t yet. You will also earn points for every purchase you make, which believe me, add up! You can convert to cash or redeem them on your next purchase.

This sale is known for its good clothing and beauty items to sell out very quickly. So if you see what you want in your size and the color you want, I highly suggest you purchase it right away, or it might not be available an hour later, seriously! That said they will restock items occasionally, so check back if you see a sold-out sign.

The size of this sale is quite impressive. Below I have gathered just a very curated edit of what I’m buying. Mostly just everyday, elevated pieces I can easily mix and match. When you shop like this, your options are endless, and you won’t need to buy as much. You are creating a capsule wardrobe.

I do have other sale content to be coming to you in the near future, and as always you can find pieces and outfits uploaded daily to my Liketoknow.it page.

Capsule Wardrobe

Developing a capsule wardrobe is all the trend today. However, it does not have to break the bank. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the perfect time to save big on the stylish pieces that are easily mixed and matched into multiple outfits.

Below I have restyled several pieces for you in different looks. This post is your capsule wardrobe edit of the fabulous sale.

Leopard Dress with Staud Bag

Dress size S

This dress is so versatile, and I love the shorter length. In the fall you can layer a sweater over it and pair with your OTKnee boots or booties. You will definitely see me in this dress again with a red sweatshirt over it and white sneakers!


Off the shoulder cardi

Cardi 4 colors Size S // Jeans // Blouse // Crossbody bag

This Cardigan is from Topshop. It is the star cardigan of the #nsale every year with a different style but always the softest knit against the skin! The light colors sell out quickly. I picked up this gray and oatmeal.

Wearing mostly solids can get a little boring. However, when you add print in your accessories, everything changes! Love this crossbody bag for doing that.


Casual sexy sweater

Sweater // Jeans

These jeans are from last year, and they brought them back to the sale this year. I love the fit and details, and at $44.00, they are a no-brainer. My button-up sweater is so soft! It can also be worn unbuttoned over a t-shirt or buttoned up over a dress.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Sweater // Denim Skirt // Heels // Sunnies // Purse

So much love for the camel sweater! Again very soft, affordable, and versatile. My neutral heels are all elastic and very comfortable for a higher heel! A denim skirt with cute details is a basic piece to have for sure. (Size down one size)

See the interest the bag brings to this outfit?


Airport Outfit

Sweatshirt // Joggers // Purse // Leopard Trench

This cozy jogger set can be easily styled in so many ways! It is perfect for travel and every day. (Size up one size)


Leopard Trench

Leopard Trench // Purse

This statement-making leopard trench is the hero piece of this capsule wardrobe. Toss it over any neutral outfit to give it a WOW factor! My croc-embossed tote bag literally will go with any outfit. It has plenty of organization pockets and separators inside and is real leather. I love the on-trend shorter shoulder strap.


Leopard Dress Chanel Coco Bag

Dress // Heels

The last I looked at the site, this leopard dress was sold out. Actually, all leopard dresses were sold out 🙁 They hopefully will restock when the sale goes public on the 19th though. Be ready if you love it, it will go quick again. This dress is amazing and under $35.00.  I can’t wait to layer Cardigans, knotted button-up shirts, and t-shirts over it. Also, turtleneck bodysuit would be so cute layered under it.


Leopard trench over knee boots

Leopard Trench // Blouse // Jeans // OTKnee boots // Purse

This outfit is chic and ready for your everyday. These boots are very comfortable and have a skinny cut to the top, so they look much more expensive than they are. (under $100)  Suede in the front and elastic in the back ensures they will stay up.

Let’s talk elevated basics now. The black blouse above and white blouse below are perfect examples. This fabric has a bit of a crinkle texture that adds interest and is synthetic so they will stay crisp white and last longer. They are also longer so you can untuck and wear over leggings.

These leggings are all the rage and on sale so definitely grab some. I have them and love them!


Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Cardi // Blouse // Jeans // OTKnee boots // Crossbody bag

All the same above, pieces just put together differently. On warmer days, ditch the OTKnee boots for sneakers and switch out the cardi for a knotted white tee or wear the cute blouse alone.


Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Cardi // Blouse // Jeans // OTKnee boots // Crossbody bag

A lighter cardigan that is not as bulky for layering over outfits will go along way! The crossbody is giving interest, and the blouse is AMAZING. Again, switch out the OTKnee boots for sandals for sneakers on warmer days.


Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Animal Print Blouse // Suede Skirt // Heels // Purse

I reach for mini-skirts over shorts. This neutral suede skirt can be styled so many ways! With sneakers and a knotted t-shirt,  boots and a sweater, endless possibilities.  The zippers give it a little edge. I also love this animal print blouse with the wide arm openings!


Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Denim Skirt // Sweater // Bag // Heels

The same pieces just mixed into a different outfit.


Leopard Dress

Dress // Heels // Bag

This round croc-embossed bag adds a little solid jade green color to this busy print.


Airport Outfit

Leopard Trench // Sweatshirt // Joggers // Tote

A chic airport outfit that is comfortable and functional!

Wrap Belt

A belt can pull your whole outfit together and instantly give you a polished look. You can turn flowy or bulky ensembles into flattering looks by wearing a belt that defines your waist. I cannot wait to tie this belt over a blazer in the fall!

Half the fun of a wrap belt is the multiple ways you can tie it! Below I have mine tied three different ways in this post. However, there are so many more ways to style this belt! There are multiple video tutorial found HERE. 

I also love a wrap belt because sometimes I do not want to deal with a metal emblem. Should it be gold, silver, large or small? With an all-leather belt, you do not have to worry about any of that.

SAVINGS: Use the code TAMMY15 for 15% off of your purchase at ADA Collection

I’ve tied my wrap belt below by wrapping it around the waist once, and then I tied a bow.

 

ADA Wrap belt styling

Striped Kimino with arc bag

Here my belt is wrapped twice around the waist, and then I tied it in the back for a minimal flat feel.

Packing Essentials For A Resort Staycation

Packing Essentials For A Resort Staycation 1080 1616 Tammy Caciola

Staycation

It seems like, finding 7-10 days to block out over summer vacation without having to worry kids is not an easy task. The easy part is finding a fantastic destination resort that is still within a 2-hour drive from my house in Austin! When you stay closer to home, childcare is more accessible. Also, by taking out the expense of your travel, going more often is more doable!

For most of us, our goal on an adult vacation is to relax and reconnect with each other as a couple. Honestly, sometimes traveling long-distance to very foreign places can end up causing more stress than relaxation. So it’s no surprise that staycations have surged in popularity all over the country recently! With fabulous resorts being more common now, heading to a close retreat is becoming the new chic getaway!

What should you pack to ensure your staycation goes smoothly, and you get the rest you deserve? Take a look at my essential checklist below and be sure to pin it to your Pinterest board for future reference.

Must Bring Items

Duffle Bag or Small Luggage

Because you will not be checking your bags for air travel, you can choose a luxe bag to pack.  Taking a nice duffle bag will elevate your trip!


Fragrance Mist

The smell of a room is a big trigger for me. Bringing my own fragrance spray just makes me happy and feel more at home! Below are my personal favorites.


Charger/Battery Pack

Yes, this is a time to unplug, but you’re going to want music, right? If you don’t have a charge pack yet, you need one! #gamechanger


Bluetooth Speaker Music changes the mood at the pool for the better!


Silk Pillowcases


Pool/Beach Tote


Hat


Eye Mask


Earplugs

Toiletries

Magazines/Book

Yeti Tumbler

Perfect for keeping your drink cold on hot days at the pool.


What To Wear On Your Staycation

Plan to bring versatile pieces to make the most of your outfits. I have a couple of shoppable choices below for a weekend staycation.

Loungewear

I like to bring my own robe and cozy pieces to be lazy in!


Bathing Suit


Cover-up


Day Dress


Dinner Dress


Light Jacket


Shorts


Button Up Shirt


Graphic Tee

Orangetheory Transformation Challenge Review

Orangetheory Transformation Challenge Review 1616 1080 Tammy Caciola

Orangetheory Fitness Workout Challenge

Orangetheory Fitness Transformation Challenge

I just finished up the Orangetheory Transformation Challenge! This challenge is eight weeks long. As I mentioned in this past post, I would update you on what I thought of the challenge. Let me start by saying I have never been on a “diet,” entered a fitness challenge or anything like that. I workout and eat right in my everyday life, so I thought that was enough. However, joining the challenge gave me the motivation to go work out on days I really didn’t want to and say no to empty calories such as candy at the movies, which is totally my weakness!

Orangetheory runs this challenge is done once a year there are two winners. One female and one male that will win $5,000.00 each for the most weight lost!  #motivation

What is involved in this challenge?

Workouts

As part of the Orangetheory challenge and to be eligible to win the prize money, you are required to work out three days a week for 6 out of the eight weeks. There will be a large chart there for you to mark the days you attend class.

Diet

You will also be required to keep a food log. I was so not looking forward to this at all, but it turned out to be my favorite part! There is, of course, an app for that. The app makes it super easy. You start by inputting your stats, including weight, height and such. Then you add your goal weight. It will tell you what your daily calorie goal needs to be to get to your ideal weight. You can scan bar codes, add food in manually and also choose repeat foods you eat daily. I’m a creature of habit, so this feature was handy to me. It was so interesting to keep track of calories and very motivating!

Coaching

You will be assigned an Orangetheory coach that will be available to you by email for any of your fitness questions. They can also help you with suggesting diet changes. Your food log will need to be turned into them weekly.


If you are a follower of mine you already know I’m a long time fan of Orangetheory. However, entering this challenge has been eye-opening. I loved how motivating it was to be a part of this! I highly recommend it!

A Styling Guide To Borrowed From The Boys

A Styling Guide To Borrowed From The Boys 2048 1365 Tammy Caciola

 

Borrowed From The Boys- Her Fashioned Life

Borrowed From The Boys

A good borrowed from the boys look is one of my favorite ways to put an outfit together. I have gone through the 4 Menswear Pieces For A Girl’s Closet and now let’s talk more about how to put it all together!

The key thing to keep in mind is creating juxtaposition or contrast in your outfit. The menswear piece can be fitted or oversized to your liking, just remember to pair it with feminine details. I choose my Chanel mini for both of these looks because it has such a beautiful, feminine feel.

Your shoe choice should also fall into the stiletto heel category unless you’re going for a more sporty look such as here.

A bold red lip for date-night is always a good idea, especially when wearing menswear.

The colors that are paired with a suit also will create contrast. In this post, the maroon velvet is gorgeous with the pinstripe suit!

In one of the pictures below, I changed out the heels for a block heel gold menswear Gucci, which shoe do you like better? Let me know in the comments below!

What You Need To Know About Orangetheory

What You Need To Know About Orangetheory 1616 1080 Tammy Caciola

Orangetheory Fitness

If you follow me on social media, you know how much I’m at Orangetheory. I’ve been going 3-4 times a week for over a year and never get bored of it! This high-intensity workout complement my LaGree and Pilates toning workouts perfectly!

So what is Orangetheory?

Orangetheory is a one-hour workout that focuses on training, endurance, strength, and power. It is a heart rate based interval training. They are known for the heart rate monitor that is either worn on your wrist, chest or arm. These options are entirely your personal preference. There is a cost difference between the options. I have found the chest monitor works best for me because I do not have to remember to charge it.

You will see there are several screens around the room. Everyone will have a separate personal box that will state in real time what your name is, calorie burn, heart rate, and splat points are. Your box will also be a color, either grey, blue, green, orange or red. These colors all represent a different heart rate zone.

The theory behind Orangetheory is that you want to spend 12 minutes or more in the orange or red zone. When you do this for one minute, you earn a splat point.

Why do you want splat points?

When you earn a splat point, you are using 85% or more of your heart rate capacity, and you will be burning more calories throughout the day.

What do you do in class?

There are three main areas to workout in, treadmill, row, and floor. There are also a couple of spin bikes and an elliptical to substitute either row or treadmill. I usually use the spin bike instead of a rower because I enjoy it more and therefore I work harder at it.

The treadmills have flex step technology. I can completely notice a difference between the gym that I hear people pounding on and the ones at Orangetheory. The flex step is softer on your joints and more bouncy. However, I opt to powerwalk instead of run because of my knees.

Every class will be different. I have been attending classes for over a year and cannot remember two that were alike. Some days you might be on the treadmill for half the class, and another day you might be 10 minutes treadmill, 10 minutes rower and 10 min floor for the whole hour. The one thing you can count on is you will always have a new workout to look forward to!

The floor exercises are a favorite of mine! Here the different equipment used is a boso ball, ab dollies, weights, TRX, and mat work. The exercise options are endless and changed daily.

Power metrics such as jumping, hoping and such can always be altered to fit your needs.

Do I have to get in shape before I start?

There will be people attending classes that are pregnant, injured and out of shape doing the workout. Whatever your level is know that you are the one in charge of how hard you push yourself and what your body can handle. So not you do not have to be in shape before you start at all.

Everyone is at an individual pace, and there is no judgment at Orange Theory ever! The workout space is somewhat dark, music is turned up, and your motivating coach will be on the mic directing everyone what to do. Most people get into a zone in this fast-paced environment and focus on their workout and not yours.

Anybody Can Do This Workout At Whatever Level They Are Comfotable With!

See The Results.

After every class, you will get an email with a chart detailing how many calories you burnt and your splat point totals. This information is also available on the OT app for your phone.

How Do I Start?

You can use this link HERE to get a free week of workouts. USE CODE OTFASHIONED. However, only this is for a limited time; the general offer is one free workout so do take advantage of this to see if Orangetheory is right for you.

What to know before your first class.

For your first class arrive 30 minutes early. You will need to sign paperwork, get your heart rate monitor. The coach will also take you inside the workout space to go over everything you need to know such as how to read the OT heart rate screen, correctly row and use the equipment.

I honestly love Orangetheory because of the changes I’ve seen in my body and well being. I thought I was working out as hard asl I could though… until I started the Orangetheory challenge! This has pushed me to limits I didn’t even think about pushing myself too!

I’ll tell you all about this 8-week challenge in my next Orangetheory post!

Use code OTFashioned when signing up.

Full Body IPL Treatment

Full Body IPL Treatment 1616 1080 Tammy Caciola

Getting a full body IPL spot treatment (scroll down for before/after pictures) is one of my favorite anti-aging procedures. I received my first treatment in my mid 30’s and was immediately addicted to how clear my skin was afterward!

I have had four more since then, over 15 years. Always during the winter months so that my skin that has been treated will be entirely covered while it heals. It’s also essential not have any sun exposure during the healing time. If you do, then using a sunscreen with a physical block (Zinc Oxide) is highly recommended.

What’s The Treatment Like

Unlike an IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) treatment on the face, there usually is not numbing cream applied before a body treatment. You shouldn’t need it. The sensation you feel will be like a rubber band flicking you. It’s very manageable. Trust me, I’m a big baby when it comes to pain, and I’ve never needed numbing cream. For me, alot of this treatment is focused on my arms. They are usually wholly treated. The rest of my body, belly, legs, and back are only treated where there are dark sunspots.

The spot treatment moves very fast and doesn’t usually take more than 20 minutes in total.

Aftercare

The only real aftercare you will need is to keep the treated areas out of the sun. However, I do highly suggest having this cream on hand to apply after an IPL procedure.  It’s a french emulsion that addresses burns.  I use it after any laser treatment I get. This cream soothes and speeds the healing process. Spread it on very thick, and your skin will absorb it quickly. You can put as many layers on as you need.

If you do have sun exposure, a physical sunscreen such as this one is ideal.

What you will see on your treated areas are the dark spots getting darker and eventually flaking off. Sometimes it can take three weeks for them to entirely on your body. Your face happens much quicker.

Choosing Your Doctor

Choosing your doctor is the most critical part of getting an IPL done. I have been severely burnt before. Not fun you don’t want to go there. If that does happen though just know that your skin eventually will even out, and the result from the burn, which is striping, will fade.

Luckily, laser technology evolves very quickly, and the new machines out there can prevent this from happening. What device your doctor will be using is import to know.

If your in or around Austin, I highly recommend Dr. Saxon. She is a top-rated expert in her field. Dr. Saxon also has the newest, best machine out there that I have seen. It’s called an ICON IPL machine and has a handheld device that will measure the melanin in your skin. It then sets the exact setting for your skin type. This way there is not any guessing or burning. You can safely achieve clear skin without the chance of burning!

Before

After


 

Having had melanoma skin cancer in my past, I do suggest you see your dermatologist to get cleared before having this treatment. Hopefully, you are going for yearly skin checks already.

How To Nail A Monochrome Outfit

Monochrome Dressing Her Fashioned Life

Dress // Trench // Heels // Clutch // Earrings // Diamond Necklace

Monochrome Styling

Monochrome dressing is one of my favorite ways to put an outfit together!  It’s also the easiest way to a chic look. When you know how to do it well, dressing in all one color looks expensive, thought-out and just good!

The secrete is to mix up textures. Choose a fuzzy white knit with a white satin skirt and white boots. However, you can look to styling a simple day look also. Try a denim on denim outfit or pair a blue silk top with blue denim jeans and blue suede sandals.

Mixing color tones will also give your outfit more interest. In this post, I have velvet, cotton and patent leather all in blush tones. This outfit is such a great Valentines Day look but would also be amazing any time of the year.
