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.

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

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

How To Wear Denim On New Year’s Eve 1080 1616 Tammy Caciola

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!

Split Hem Denim

Truth be told, I’ve never been a fan of split hem denim. However, when I tried these jeans on at Austin’s own LuxRox Boutique, I instantly was hooked! I styled them with these fun patent leather, retro heels that I have worn a ton over the years. I love how the seam in the front of the pants along with the split hem exposing the ankle slims your leg by elongating it! Adding the heel brings it up a notch to “legs for days!”

Then I added an oh so soft silk blush top with a burgundy color moto jacket that is gorgeous and luxe! The texture play is perfection combining suede, leather, and silk! I also haven’t stopped wearing these earrings since I bought them. The pearl at the bottom is a chic pop of neutral color that I love.

Statement Boots

If you’ve been following along with me here or on Instagram, you know I usually keep things pretty classic and simple when putting my outfits together. However, when I want to take my outfits up a notch, a statement boot does the trick.

These burgundy snake print boots are my fall obsession, and I’ve been wearing them every chance I get! They are a sock-boot style, which is one of my favorite types of boots. I love that they look great on a bare leg and they easily tucked under my pants.

Statement Boots For Fall www.HerFashionedLife.com

Style Options

  • The easiest and most chic way to wear statement boots is to keep your clothing in a monochrome tone, such as all black. Keeping your outfit as simple as I have here, lets your boots sing.
  • Mix them with other prints but keeping solid pieces in between. Doing this will give your eye a break from prints so as not to overwhelm. Wear your fun statement boots with solid pants or a skirt. Add a neutral color top and a printed neck scarf or bag.
  • A statement boot can also be a bright color such as red, purple or metallic. You can style solid colored boots in the same way as above too.
  • Red boots paired with a pretty leopard or plaid dress is a perfect way to take that outfit up a notch!

5 Ways To Stand Out In Your LBD

5 Ways To Stand Out In Your LBD 1365 2048 Tammy Caciola

Maggy London Dress // Heels // Gucci Belt (Dupe) // Similar bag // Sunglasses

Having an LBD in your closet is a must-have. It’s your fall back to looking chic and put together at a moments notice, no shopping required! Whether you’re headed out for drinks with the girls or a black-tie gala your dress can be styled perfectly for either occasion. However, you don’t want to blend in with the many other black dresses in the same room at your event. Here are some easy style tips on how to make yours stand out while still keeping it classic and chic.

The Dress

First, you want the right LBD. Not to say you can only have one! You want to look for classic, not trendy, lines in the dress. Simple but significant details are however a bonus! Such as beautiful buttons or the sheer ruched neckline on the dress I’m wearing. I was drawn to this dress immediately when I saw it on the Maggy London site!

Keep the hemline a little longer, or a full skirt, if want above the knee. Doing this will keep you from, having a night out clubbing look. I loved the sheer cap sleeves on this dress because I’m always cold inside when the a/c is blasting! Isn’t it funny that guys get to wear coats to get dressed up and women get to expose skin!

The other thing to look for the fabric. Spend a little more to get quality fabric the will hold up through the years of use and dry cleaning.

Once you have the perfect LBD, it’s all in the details to make you stand out from the crowd!

 

Styling Tips

  1. Add interest to your timeless black dress with your accessories. A bold clutch, statement earrings or vibrantly colored stiletto heels with take you to a whole new level of chicness.
  2. Make-up and nail color choice can also be a huge factor when styling your look. Adding a red lip or bold eyeliner will give your face color while choosing the right nail polish will also add to the overall feel of your outfit.
  3. Mixing the fabric and accessory textures is also a perfect way to keep the eye interested! My dress is so much more interesting with the sheer details. Think of adding fur, leather, crocodile in your bag, coat or shoes.
  4. Don’t be afraid to belt it! This will add definition to your waist and be a little unexpected. It breaks up the long simple silhouette and adds a little edge to your look!
  5. Choosing the dress is important but in my opinion it the shoes that will make everyone look twice! My choice is usually a classic all-black look. However, these white stiletto heels have me thinking twice! Seriously good! If they are in your price range, don’t think twice they will sell quickly!  Look for either a sexy, classic heel or one with details such as what I’m wearing. Can you believe mine are only $34.99 and still in stock!

How to Look Chic Wearing Multiple Trends - Her Fashioned Life

How To Look Chic Wearing Multiple Trends

How To Look Chic Wearing Multiple Trends 1365 2048 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?

The Essential Hoodie

If you are wondering how to layer a hoodie then your on the right track girl! The hoodie has gone mainstream thanks to the street style stars and celebrities wearing it non-stop! I think every girl needs at least one hoodie in their closet! It is such a versatile piece that it can be worn throughout the year.

Style Options

I’m here to share some easy style tips on how you can start layering a hoodie like a pro and work it into your everyday life!

  • Sporty –  Try a hoodie sweatshirt with a knitted beanie, black denim or leggings, and sneakers. You can also layer the hoodie under a bomber or varsity jacket. I love all-black clothing with a contrasting light grey jacket!
  • Grunge – Start with a graphic t-shirt, add your zip-up hoodie, destroyed denim and then top it all with a long wool coat. For shoes, you can go with a vintage sneaker or my new favorite combat boot.
  • Girlish – Style a black hoodie over a black and white printed short skirt, sneakers and a bright bag or clutch.
  • Masculine – Wear it layered under a trench with skinny jeans and vintage sneakers. I did this above with the plaid trench and added white boots to elevate the look! A bright bag will add interest to the outfit!
  • Contrast – Pairing it with a pencil skirt that is also lace is super cute! Another contrasting look would be a satin pleated maxi skirt. However, make sure to go with a high waisted skirt and a cropped version hoodie for the proportions to work.
  • Casual – This is a favorite look of mine! I love a light colored hoodie with a light denim jacket, don’t forget to push up the sleeves. Then go black or grey denim with black or white sneakers!
  • Chic – All black everything! Just play with proportions and textures of leather, denim, cotton and uber chic fur! For shoes choose a pointed toe boot or thigh-high boots with heels!
  • Athletic – Run around town in your yoga pants, hoodie with a puffer vest or nylon sporty jacket layered over and athletic shoes.

I love that the hoodie has a bit of a boyish feel. If you love this tomboy look don’t miss my post here, 4 Menswear Pieces To Add To A Girls Closet.
