The Best Of The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

The Best Of The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 864 1080 Tammy Caciola

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here, and it’s better than ever! I spent most of the day Wednesday in the store trying on and getting to know what the must-have pieces were! Also, being the crazy shopper I am, buying A LOT as you can tell from the shopping bags above;)

By the way, almost all of this blog posts pictures are from an iPhone, so please forgive that. I think it’s nice to see the pieces look styled and on though.

PRO Tips To Know

Your key to Early Access shopping is your Nordstrom card. If you do not have one yet, you can apply here!  

Don’t worry if you do not have a card; most everything will get restocked when the sale goes public. I say re-stocked because items sell extremely fast! Especially Topshop and Winter Booties.

Because everything sells so quickly if you’re unsure on size, order two pieces. With Nordstrom’s fabulous return policy and free shipping, there aren’t any worries.

This is the best time to treat your self to Stuart Weitzman boots, Vince pieces, and Tech and Beauty Products! Most everything is 40% off!!! It’s a significant discount on the brand new Fall and some Summer pieces.

Trust me when I say the sale is BIG! I’ve spent the time gathering my best pick’s so you wouldn’t have to. The denim is GOOD, sweaters and cardigans are gorgeous, and the shoes are on point!

The following pictures are outfits that I’ve put together in the dressing room. Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns! I’m here to help! I have my pick’s for more items on the blog here. Everything is broken down into manageable categories! However, I’ll be adding more so check back!

Tunic Dress Obsession

I was obsessed with this tunic dress/shirt from the moment I saw it on sale at a Nordstrom store! The gathered details are just gorgeous! I knew right away that the light fabric would be perfect for hot Texas summers.  Styling it with a skinny, canvas belt I had in my closet gave my waist a little more definition. In addition, I wanted a chic dressed up look so I wore a classic nude heel. Keeping the purse small played well with the proportions creating contrast with the oversized shirt.

When the colder weather comes, I’ll style it with over-the-knee boots and a fur vest. How cute does that sound?! Wearing a tunic over denim pants or leggings with booties is also an excellent option for fall/winter dressing.

Another option for styling a tunic is to just tuck it into your high-waisted pants or denim. Depending upon the thickness of the fabric of your tunic.

How To Style A Date-Night Outfit in 5 Minutes

How To Style A Date-Night Outfit in 5 Minutes 720 1080 Tammy Caciola

Date-night outfit with neutrals - www.HerFashionedLife.com

Date-Night Outfit

With the busy lives we all lead, sometimes it’s hard to fit in the time it takes to put the perfect date-night look together. Especially after rushing around for kids sports games, practices, and other endless obligations. None the less, with the following tips you’ll be able to be quickly be dressed and ready in 5 minutes or less!

First,  you need to have these pieces in your closet already. Once you have these wardrobe staples, putting an outfit together will be much easier.

Neutral Colors

Silk camisole tops and slip dresses are sexy and easy for a date-night outfit! Just something about wearing lingerie out in public right?! If it’s a chilly night, add a knit cardigan layered over. The contrast of fabrics will only add to the chic, sexy feel.

Choose neutral colors for easy outfit formulas. For example, if you have a black, white, or champagne top piece, it will pair well with either black, white, or champagne on the bottom. Monochrome outfits work well here also, such as all black. You cannot go wrong with any combination of neutrals really.

You could also wear any of those neutral colors with blue denim for a more casual feel.

Slip Dress

A one-and-done slip dress is also a perfect choice. Look to silk fabrics for a pretty sheen to give you a special look for the night.

The cuts should be close to your body, not boxy. Tucking in a cami as I have done here will give you a waist and elongate your legs. I’m always looking for any trick that will help to make my legs look longer!

Having a classic pump is a must in everyone’s closet. If you do not have a pair or two yet, now is the time to change that! Again look to the neutral colors for your quick outfit selections. A pointed toe pump will elongate your leg and make you feel sexy.

I think a wedge heel is more suited for a girls/family night. However, comfort is also needed so that we enjoy ourselves. I have found this budget-friendly brand to be the most comfortable heel I own.

Remember the shoe doesn’t need to be a high heel. I look for either a classic pump or minimal strappy sandals with a lower heel.

Rainbow Print

As much as I love neutrals, I’m embracing this fun summer trend. The rainbow print trend is here to brighten all of our days. This statement-making print is also very versatile. You can pair the accessories with any of the multiple colors, or keep it simple with neutral pieces.

Rainbow print has been trending for a couple of years, and I would say it is going to be around next Spring/Summer season also. I invested in these gorgeous strappy heels last year seen in this post here, and I’m entirely thrilled with my choice!

Styling The Colors

I fell in love with the dress I have on immediately when I saw it! I couldn’t wait to style the bright sequins with a contrasting an olive-green army jacket. (Side note, yes that is me on the designer, Romi Basha’s homepage with this same SQUAD army jacket!) A strappy neutral shoe would be the norm. However, these golden Gucci mules lent to the contrasting look I was going for. I also added red drop earrings to bring the color above the jacket and balance out the outfit.

Treasure & Bond

Tassel Wrap

Such a versatile piece! Use it for an extra belted layer over clothes, cover-up, beach towel or scarf on the plane. At 34 x 82, it’s big. However, it is a gauze material that doesn’t take up much space!


Plage Protective Sun Veil

I use this spray in my daily routine. It gives my hair a light texture, smells great, and separates the strands without any drying ingredients.

If I’m going to be in the sun, I grab this product to take with me because it also shields hair from the UV rays.


Striped Zippered Clutch

Must-have for small items inside your beach bag and it doubles as a clutch.

Ancient Greek

Polka Dot Sandals

How cute is the polka dot print on these comfortable sandals? This print is almost a neutral that you can mix with different prints as well!

Hat Attack

Lux Tote

This bag is big enough for towels but will also fold flat in your luggage. I Love the zipper pouch inside too keep track of small items.

All you need to do is tie a coordinating scarf around the handle! It would be super cute to completely wrap each handle with scarves also! A solid black would be very chic. How To Video HERE.

Summer Layers

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 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!


Summer Fashion in Neutral Colors

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?

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.

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.

Floral Dress Styling For Daytime

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!
