Summer Layers

Living in Texas and Arizona my whole life, you wouldn’t think I would need to know about summer layers. It’s funny though in these extremely hot days (above 100 most of July and August) everywhere you go indoors, the AC is turned down so low it’s freezing cold. Don’t think about going to the grocery store or movie theater without a jacket! So, I have had to layer my summer outfits a lot. I feel like layers are much more interesting anyway!

Chic Layers

To me, achieving a chic look means ditching the patterns, unless it’s a stripe. Going with solid pieces is what will give you timeless, chic style. (This blazer here is so good!) However, make sure to mix in light materials and show some skin on your first layers. I have on a light silk, sleeveless top here.

If you wear pants, keep them shorter, so your ankles show instead of entirely covering them. I had mine hemmed here, but you can just cut them off as well. Your outfit will feel lighter. Showing more skin also helps keep you cooler in the heat. White or lightly destroyed denim are both excellent choices.

If you keep your accessories neutral and made of organic materials, that will give you a summer feel. The texture in my purse and mules are a perfect example of lighting up a long cashmere duster. I can take it off in the hot car and have it on to snuggle up in a movie!

Long Dusters

Long Dusters are my favorite layer. They are so so versatile! From shorts to skirts and destroyed denim, a duster will bring your outfit to the next level.

Blazers are an ideal layer for looking a bit more put together. This blush pink linen blazer for $17.49 is a no-brainer for summer layers!

Denim Jacket

A denim jack gives your outfit more structure. A silk slip dress or flowy chiffon fabric contrasts well with the denim.



Do you have to use Summer layers where you live?

The Best Swimwear Edit For Summer 2018

Summertime is here along with long pool and beach days! It seems like the good swimwear also goes very quickly. However, I have found some excellent pieces for you to shop and feel great in all summer long!

This is the first year I have branched my swimwear out to Topshop and H&M. The prices are so affordable, styles are on trend and fabrics are gorgeous. The low pricing also frees up my budget to spend more elsewhere on coverups and summer slides. If you are looking for summer sandals, don’t miss this post here!

Whatever your budget, I have you covered below!


Stripe Side Tie One Piece

I bought this one piece for my last trip and absolutely love it! The high cut leg openings elongate my shorter legs! It’s very cute worn as a bodysuit under shorts or a skirt also. Actually, most one pieces are perfect to double as a top!

Day To Night With A Floral Print Dress

If you have been following along with me here or on Instagram, you know that I usually gravitate toward solid pieces of clothing. Aside from stripes or stars, I do not have many prints in my wardrobe. However, when I saw this vibrant floral dress and tried it on, I had to have it! First, it fits me like a glove and is the perfect shape for summer! With the corset top, there is no bra needed. I hate wearing bras in the heat…too personal? 🙂  The fabric is also a linen blend which breathes very well in the in warm weather. I fell in love with the fun floral print and the color palette!

I love to dress up for date night! Perfect time to pull out my favorite heels to wear. I layered on the jewelry with this look, because the dress could handle it without being overwhelmed. With my hair up, I felt like the chunky necklaces gave me a little more coverage also. The gorgeous Dooney and Bourke bag I’m carrying is the exact blue color in the dress, perfect! Finally, I kept the sunglasses fun and light pink.

This dress is super fun and easy to style for the day! You swap the heels for white sneakers, black would also work because of the black accents in the dress. Then, top it off with a casual layer such as this light linen jacket I have on. A denim piece would also be perfect with the blue accents on the dress! Style your hair a bit more casual with a braid and lighten up the jewelry. You’re ready to explore the town on your vacation!

I changed to all black accessories for the beach or pool. The black plays off the darker accents in the fabric so well! The accessories are also organic and textured, giving a beachy feel.

Hard to believe it is May and summer is almost here! Kiddos will be out of school and vacations, summer camps and backyard get-togethers are all around the corner. White dresses are a part of summertime in my book! Fresh and clean to contrast your tan skin. Accent them with natural basket bags for a lighter feel than leather bags. Add a pop of color with your sandals or earring choices. Keeping it all neutral with natural sandals is also a favorite summer look of mine! Lots of perfect sandal choices in the Timeless Sandal Edit here.

Try styling a dress backward like I did with the white dress I’m wearing in this post. I liked the little bow in front for a little more coverage.

Polka dot dress

Styling A Polka Dot Dress Three Ways

Styling A Polka Dot Dress Three Ways 720 1080 Tammy Caciola

Polka Dot Dress with denim jacket


Polka dot dress with denim jacket

The polka dot trend is coming back around. I remember wearing this print in the 80’s! Princess Di and Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman also jumped in on the trend. It’s such a fun and actually versatile print when styled right.  Minnie Mouse is the best, however looking like her is not my goal 🙂

I have styled the same polka dot dress three ways for you!

I started with the daytime look here. If you are subscribed to my newsletter, you will receive styling tips for the trendy look which is super cute and the date night look, which is totally chic! I’m using the same $49.00 polka dot dress in all three outfits to give you three completely different looks!

Daytime Styling For A Polka Dot Dress

When you wear polka dots in the day, mix it up with natural textures, such as denim jeans or a denim jacket over your shoulders. For shoe choices, I like to be comfortable in the day so I gravitate toward espadrille sneakers, or sandals, (See sandal post here) or low block heels. Choosing one of these shoe styles will give you the casual look you’re going for. Lastly, wearing a crossbody bag will also give you daytime feels in your outfit!

You’re not going to want to miss the other two styling options for this dress! Date Night Chic and a fun Trendy Look!

    My Denim Dress Obsession

    My Denim Dress Obsession 720 1080 Tammy Caciola

    Denim Year Around

    I love to wear denim year around! Seriously every time I go shopping I’m bound to bring home some type of denim! From dark jeans in the winter to destroyed boyfriend jeans and skirts or shorts in the summer. Then there are jean jackets which are always hard to pass up! A denim dress completely has me at hello though! I have multiple but… I can still find somewhat of a reasonable reason why I need another! I wear them all spring and summer. Actually, I have worn one so much it now has holes, which I kinda don’t mind because I do not want to give up the dress!

    Fitted Denim Dress Styling

    Elevated Look – There are so many shades and cuts of a denim dress. I like a darker fabric with a fitted fit for a little more of a dressier feel, add heels and a clutch to complete your look.  As you can see in the pictures here, I have styled two different fitted dresses. One by adding color in the bag and rainbow heels. The other by adding a floral printed topper and a leopard heel. I felt comfortable in the daytime with these accessories, but you could scale back to flat sandals, (See sandal post here), in the day and save the heels for date night.


    Denim Dress Obsession

    Sheath Dress Styling

    Casual Style – I love a sheath dress for a casual everyday outfit! Especially in the hot Texas summers! Like I said I’ve worn mine so much it has holes! Just add some neutral slides or for a preppy look, an oxford shoe is a favorite of mine! Old school or luxe sneakers are always a good choice too for daytime errands! If you wear your bag as a crossbody, it will give the dress a little more definition. Belting at the waist is a great option for doing that also.

    Denim Overall Styling

    There are also overall dresses which are sooo cute with a simple t-shirt or bodysuit under! Wear them with your favorite sneakers for a casual look. Dress it up a bit with a light fabric blouse under and an espadrille wedge shoe.  Off the shoulder tops are also a great choice under overalls!

    Denim Romper Styling

    Denim rompers have caught my eye since Alexa Chung designed hers with AG denim! (Her latest is here.)These can be simply a one and done piece or layer a light moto jacket over it for an edgy look. Kimonos also look great styled with a romper.

    What is your denim obsession you have too much of in your closet?

    I hope that gives you styling choices to try a piece you might not have in your wardrobe! Please let me know if you need any other options!

    Timeless Spring Sandals To Buy Now

    Timeless Spring Sandals To Buy Now 1616 1080 Tammy Caciola

    timeless sandals

    Spring Sandals

    Spring SandalsSpring has finally arrived with its warm days. I’m so excited to bring out some of my favorite sandals that I’ve had for years to wear with lighter spring/summer outfits. Yes, I said years! You know I love trendy shoes as much as any girl, as you can see in this post. However, having some timeless sandals in your rotation is a must. You can reach for them to pair with pretty much any outfit!

    When shopping for a timeless shoe, look for clean lines and classic colors.

    Under $125.00

    There are plenty of affordable options in this price range for spring sandals. You can then focus your spending on other things such as your summer vacation instead!

    $195.00 to $245.00

    The leathers will be authentic and soft in this price range. You should get a longer life out of them with the quality of craftsmanship.

    $480.00 to $620.00

    When you look at luxe sandals, it will be a whole different level of materials and quality. You also will get the pretty packaging with the box and shoe bags, it’s a whole experience! I bought my Hermès Oran sandals two years ago. They have been heavily worn but are still in perfect condition and I plan on wearing them for years to come. However, it’s kinda crazy but these sandals sell out quickly, in June there will be few sizes left if they are in stock at all! So if your thinking about a pair see if your size is in stock now.

    Thanks so much for reading!

    Do you have a pair of sandals that you have been reaching for threw the years?

    How to Look Chic Wearing Multiple Trends - Her Fashioned Life

    How To Look Chic Wearing Multiple Trends

    How To Look Chic Wearing Multiple Trends 720 1080 Tammy Caciola

     fashion trends,

    Fashion Trend Combining

    If you have been following my blog or Instagram you know I tend to stick to the classic side of fashion. However, I love to mix in trends to update my look! The new fashion trends are always fresh and exciting!  I can’t help but add a couple of lust-worthy pieces to my closet each season!

    Just remember, the key to looking chic and not looking like a “fashion victim” is to balance your entire look. With the outfit I have on here, even though everything I have on is a trend, it doesn’t look overdone. The utility jumpsuit has been trending for years and has made its way back to the streets for Spring 2018. The rainbow trend was getting big last year, however, this year it’s proving to be much bigger, and belt bags also peeked out last year but are currently the bag to have! The Prada belt bag I have is also a crossbody with a gorgeous chain! Love that you can wear it crossbody or as a belt bag! I’m obsessed and reach for it all the time!

    Styling Multiple Trends In One Outfit

    Pick the hero piece of the outfit

    To get a chic but trendy look, let one item shine. Build the rest of your outfit around that one piece. For my outfit here it’s all about the rainbow heels. The other items are also trendy but in neutral colors and do not attract too much attention away from the pop of color the heels have.

    Choose A Color Palette

    Don’t go wild with multiple colors. Keep it to three colors maximum for a chic look. If you can also streamline your bag and shoes, this will gound your look and pull it together. So if you have a gorgeous white dress with red polka dots you want to wear. Maybe go with trendy red or white heels and the same color round bag. Polish the look off with plastic cat-eye sunnies and a red lip! Whatever the accessory color you choose, you just want the polka dot dress to be the hero.

    Wear The Outfit Well

    When you go out of your comfort zone, but love what you are wearing it will show in your body language and face when you step out the door! You can mix 3 different patterns, colors and textures and still shine in that fabulous outfit if you have the confidence and attitude to back it up!  If you’re unsure about your choices, take baby steps with trends until you feel more at ease to step it up a notch.

    What is your favorite trend of 2018?

    Vince Slip Dress With Staud Bucket Purse


    Essential Top

    Your wardrobe most likely has a mixture of trendy items and closet staples that stay chic and never go out of style. One piece you can always count on being an essential piece is a white button-down shirt. I’m sure you probably have one hanging in your closet now! You might even be like me and have a couple of different styles. My favorite by far is from Frank & Eileen. The weight is perfect for layering in the hot of summer and the v-neck hits just right for a sexy look. I just machine wash on delicate and hang dry to keep that crisp white look!

    Styling Options

    1. Bathing Suit Cover-Up ~ There is something sexy about a menswear top covering up a bathing suit. Simple and forever chic as seen here. A fun idea is to custom embroider your name or nickname on the upper back portion or front pocket of the shirt! Super cute beach pic’s if a friend or two also do it!
    2. Layer Over Slip Dress ~ As I’ve done in this post, I’ve left the front unbuttoned and tied a knot to close it.  Perfect for spring weather when it’s still a bit chilly out!
    3. All White Outfit ~ Pair a silk version with white slacks, add a blazer and an elegant heel or flat! A white cotton piece would also look perfect with white denim!
    4. Layer Under Dresses, Overalls, and Jumpsuits ~ This is one of my favorite ways to give an outfit an unexpected look! Wear the top under a strapless jumpsuit, seen here, with heels for an elevated look. Overalls and flight suits are all the rage this spring. How cute to layer this piece under a sleeveless version. Just play around with different textures and proportions until you nail it!

    Black and White Outfit

    A black and white outfit is so easy to quickly put together but always looks chic and never overdone! Especially when you add some stripes to the mix! Here I also added a simple heel with a fun leopard print for more interest.

    If you mix textures of the colors you will also get an elevated, but casual outfit. Say a black fur coat with a white cotton tee-shirt and black straight leg, cropped pants with white booties! Adding a statement belt to the look, like the cult favorite Gucci Belt, would be just the right accessory. Love it! Just have fun and play around with different fabrics and cuts!

    Another great option is a black gingham print with a black sweater and a bright shoe! Seen here on my Instagram.

    Side note: I bought the Burberry Satin Trench I’m wearing here from TheRealReal! I think I paid $220.00 instead of over $2,000.00! Learn how to shop the site with my guide here and grab some amazing designer goods!
