Mom Style

Between the homework, sports, and keeping everyone in the family clothed and fed, being a mom is a full-time job! Thinking about your outfit and style is sometimes the last thing on your mind when you leave the house. Here are a couple of simple tips to help you look your best when you step out the door and not like you were just running around tripping on lego’s trying and trying to get the school science experiment done!

Purge Your Closet

How many times have you looked at your overstuffed closet and said: “I have nothing to wear”? That is because putting together an outfit can be overwhelming when you have too many options. After your closet is organized, you will find it much easier to put together chic outfits quickly. See my post here to help with de-cluttering your closet.

Uniform

Now that you have your closet cleaned out, you need a couple of simple outfit combinations, or a uniform, that you can reach for on a moments notice. Choose solid and timeless basics such as below. Invest a little more in these pieces, so they last you will get several wearings from them.

When you put an outfit on that you love, take a picture and save it to a Pinterest board for easy future reference.

Outfit formulas:

Button-up shirt, white denim with printed mules and a luxe bag.

Striped t-shirt, skinny jeans, loafers, and a bright scarf.

Solid knit sweater, leggings, and leopard or snake printed boots/shoes.

Silk camisole, knit cardigan, ripped boyfriend jeans, and old school sneakers.

T-shirt, blazer, skinny jeans with sneakers.

Striped t-shirt, jeans, loafers with a bright scarf and a structured bag.

Accessories

Your accessories are what is going to pull your look together and make it stand out. Having the below pieces in your rotation will bring your mom style up a notch for sure!

1.A bright or printed light scarf to wrap around your neck or shoulders like a cape.

2. A Luxe structured bag can be an outfit maker!

3. Printed flat shoes. Wearing a statement shoe will give any simple outfit interest.

4. Big dark sunglasses, your best friend when there is no time for make-up.

5. Timeless watch or one signature piece of jewelry.

6. A bold gold necklace that will give any button-up or t-shirt a luxe pop when you want it.

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.

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

The last way I styled this belt is probably my favorite. I wrapped it twice around my waist and then knotted the belt in front.

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!

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.

Valentine’s Day Dressing

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Do you have what to wear on your mind? Well, don’t worry; I have you covered! If you’re headed out for a romantic dinner, you will want to dress to impress your partner. However, if you want to also be on the chic side and not be overly sexy follow these tips below.

Date-Night Styling Tips

  • Pick a body part to be uncovered. So, don’t leave your chest uncovered, and your legs with a short dress. This dress I’m wearing here is very short, but the rest of my body is fully covered, so I’m not giving out that going clubbing feel.

Also, note this dress is made shorter by wearing a belt. You can style it with sneakers and no belt for a very day-friendly look.

  • Choose a shiny, sparkly piece to look sexy in, such as I did here. You do not have to have skin exposed at all to shine and catch his eye. Especially with a semi-sheer, sequin top or this one-shoulder top. Pair it with a tailored pair of pants and heels for a date-night look!
  • Try a little leather to give yourself an edgy look. Start with a sexy, satin slip dress and layer a leather moto jacket over it — the perfect way to contrast dress in my book.
  • Girls have been wearing tight sweaters since the ’50s to show off their assets without revealing too much. Wear a tight cashmere sweater in a color that flatters you with leather leggings, add gorgeous heels, and you will not disappoint!
  • Animal prints can also have the same effect. I love a button-up, silk, leopard print top with a leather mini skirt and heels! Add some gold hoops and necklaces to give a little sparkle to your look!

Daytime Options

Hopefully, that covers your night out. Are you looking for help for a cute daytime outfit for your kiddos class parties and such? Be sure to check out my Valentine’s Day shirt edit!

The Trend That Is Sticking Around For 2019

The Trend That Is Sticking Around For 2019 1365 2048 Tammy Caciola

Dress // Boots // Clutch // Belt, Dupe // Sunglasses // Gold Earrings // Chain Necklace

Animal Magic

The new year is always full of fresh starts, promises, and new fashion trends! Although, sometimes a trend will stay around longer than a year, and that is most certainly the case with  Leopard print. Everybody had a major leopard mood last year, and you can expect it that mood to stay around for 2019.

However, this year not only will the classic black-and-tan colors be hot.  You can expect this wild print will show up in vibrant colors such as red and purple.

Leopard print is a classic print and NOT trendy, although it will be “trending” big again. If you choose a colored fabric for this pattern, that will be a trendy piece.


My Leopard Dress

This fun leopard print dress has flirty ruffles along the bottom and pleated details at the neckline. This dress will easily transition from winter to summer by styling it with different accessories. Here, I have belted it with my go-to Gucci belt to give my waist more definition. Adding the red clutch adds a pop of color and interest to the outfit.

I’m a bit obsessed with the scrunch boot style lately, and these boots are just gorgeous! They pair perfectly with denim as well, and I love the wooden heel detail!

How To Wear Denim On New Year’s Eve

Wearing Denim On New Year’s Eve Night

New Year’s Eve is the type of holiday where anything goes as far as sparkle and glam for your outfit. However, that doesn’t mean you need to wear a fancy dress. Rethink your ensemble by wearing comfy denim jeans instead. Save the self-tanner and shaving your legs is optional… You can put together a chic, elevated look with the 4 tips below.

  1. Your jeans will be very understated. I mean you can also wear them to a football game. This means everything else needs to have a wow factor. Definitely look for an over the top sequin blouse, beautiful heels, and clutch.
  2. Keep the lines fun but tailored. Don’t choose denim that is overly distressed or has holes in the knees. Usually, the best fit for denim at night is skinny fit with a dark wash. I love these Levi’s I have on because they have a cool vintage feel but also fit amazing! And.. they come in a billion colors.
  3. Choose a clutch over a shoulder or crossbody bag. It just says “night out” more.
  4. The heels should be as high as you can comfortably wear all night. That might be a kitten heel or a 4″ heel, but definitely some type of heel to elevate your look.
  5. Add a luxe belt if you are tucking in your blouse.

I hope this will help open up some fun and chic options for you on New Year’s Eve!

Holiday Sparkle Her Fashioned Life

The Do’s and Don’ts Of Styling Holiday Sparkle

The Do’s and Don’ts Of Styling Holiday Sparkle 2048 1365 Tammy Caciola

Holiday Sparkle- Her-Fashioned-Life

Holiday Sparkle

It is holiday party season and time to shine! All the sparkle is welcome from office parties to family gatherings! Leave your LBD in the closet and look to sequins and metallics to elevate your holiday style.

Do Know That Less Is More

To keep your outfit festive but elegant, try to balance the shine with neutral tones. Choose clean, classic lines in your pieces. For example, with this fun metallic skirt I’m wearing here, I have paired it with a tailored, cropped blazer and a basic silk cami. In addition, my heels are also simple but chic. Stick to a three-color rule if you can. My whole outfit is made up of black, gold, and silver. Minimal and delicate jewelry is also a good idea. Doing these things will let your statement piece, whether a skirt, dress, top or shoes be the star of the show.

However, if you want a pop of color, tie it in with your shoes, bag or earrings.

Do Mix Texture

Mixing up textures in my outfits is always my favorite way to add a fun, unexpected twist to an ensemble.  The great thing about sequins is you do not have to choose a traditional holiday color palette of red and green. A beautiful navy sequined blouse paired with denim and heels is a perfect holiday look for a casual family get together.  Combining knits with sequins is also, in my opinion, a perfect holiday look!

Create Contrast And Have Fun With It

Do Accessorize Well

Not ready to jump on the holiday shine deep end? Try to start by playing around with glitter shoes, sequined belts, and sequined outerwear to incorporate shine into your holiday looks. A bag like one would be the perfect way to dip your toe in!

Don’t Overdue it

Try not to compete with the disco ball at the party. Avoid going overboard with color and shine. Don’t wear large accessories with your sequined pieces. Remember to keep it reasonably simple yet chic. Also, before you leave the house, look at your outfit in the mirror and take off anything that you think might be too much. You will feel much more comfortable at the party.

Don’t Wear The Wrong Under Garments

Stick to a neutral bra and panties. Sometimes with man-made fabrics, there are small holes. Flash photography can wreak havoc on a white bra under a thin red dress. However, I love to see a black bra showing through a sexy semi-transparent top, like this or LOVE this one. Just make sure you put thought into what you’re wearing under your outfit as well. Holiday pictures last forever and you do not want to be too revealing.

What do you wear under a menswear blazer jacket? THIS will keep everything in place and still give you that fab look you’re going for. If Lace is not what you’re looking for try this one.

Choosing A Holiday Dress

The holiday season is here and with that comes many parties to attend. When you want to step outside the standard LBD, but still have a classic overall look, shop for a dress with simple lines but fun fabric! The sparkly fabric this dress has says it’s holiday season. However, the cut is classic and could be worn all year. The longer length and high cut neckline are perfect for office parties as well as date-night.

I Layered a trench the same of the same color family over it to give the dress a chic monochrome look. Fur would also look amazing!
