Mustard is such a hot color this fall! Although it is a traditional autumn hue, it has not been as popular as it is this season for many, many years! This is actually the first time mustard has been popular that I have put it into my closet, and loved it!

I was thrilled when Karen Klein reached out to me to introduce me to her collection. Her collection has several mustard pieces in classic, and fashion-forward styles; so I was excited to learn more about her, and share the collection with you! Karen Klein is a local, San Francisco Bay Area designer. Her designs come to life right here in San Francisco! I love that her clothing is not only made in the USA, it is made in San Francisco! Love!

Karen Klein clothing is fabulous because it is made to fit any shape or size. When I attend fashion week in New York, I see SO MANY styles go down the runway that can only be worn by a size 000. If you look around you, how many people are a size 000? Um, I rarely see one! Most people walking around are wearing sizes much higher then 000, 00, 0, 2, and 4. The last time I wore a 4 I was a freshman in high school. I wear an 8 now, and I am perfectly happy with my size. It is so refreshing to look at Karen Klein’s collection and know that all of it will not only fit me, but it will look good on me! Let’s face it, just because something comes in your size, does not mean it will look good. Karen Klein’s clothing just looks good on any size body!

When I look good, I feel good. I love clothing which makes me feel secure in myself. This wrap dress looks good, and it is really comfortable, Plus, it can double as a topper over jeans, and a thin sweater when the weather gets cooler this winter. I look forward to wearing it over jeans-and yes, I will post that look later in the season when the weather calls for it.

In addition to this dress, I also have this black dress by Karen Klein, and this fabulous jacket. Those too, will come to the blog soon! So stay tuned. . .

Football season is in full swing! This means we all need to sport gear which shows off who we are rooting for! Go Niners! (I also cheer for the Raiders-so Go Raiders!)

Levi’s has always been a mainstay in my life. There is always at least one pair of Levi’s jeans in my closet at all times. They have the most durable denim, flattering cuts, and they are the original denim designers; right here from San Francisco! I also feel a connection to them because my Great-Grandfather was one of the first people to sell Levi’s jeans to gold-miners during the gold rush from his general store. So when I learned Levi’s had a full collection of game day, football gear, I was thrilled!

what to wear to football game

Levi’s has a full collection of fabulous football game day shirts and jackets to help give you the perfect football game outfit ideas for both being in the stadium, or at a fun football watch party. I also find that Levi’s football game day apparel is great to wear on non-game days too! I love showing my support for my team!

This striped tee is is super cute for both game days, and casual days when football isn’t played. It offers short sleeves, and looks so perfect on warm or hot days. We all know Levi’s Stadium can get warm; our South Bay temperatures love to rise! This short sleeve tee is perfect for those warm home games!

Football season runs from warm fall days, into late fall, early winter. This means temperatures go from 80 degrees to 40 degrees during the season. I love this rugby shirt because it is thick and perfect for cold game days. Nothing is more annoying then throwing a jacket over my team shirt and covering up my team spirit! This rugby keeps me warm, and keeps my team support on display. Love that!

I just love my new 49ers gear from Levi’s. I need to snap up a couple more pieces to show my support for the Raiders too. Hopefully my gear will help bring some luck to the niners this season, they really need it!

You can find your favorite football team gear online at Levis.com

Wondering how to wear a sequin jacket during the day for a casual event? Or maybe you have a casual party on New Years Eve and are wondering how to style a sequin jacket for New Years Eve? Well I struggled with these questions too!

I have an all-black outfit I planned to wear with this sequin jacket from Tart Collections. When the jacket arrived, I quickly went to my closet to try the outfit on together, only to find my weight gain sized me out of my black outfit! The shame! So then I decided I had to find a way to style this sequin jacket for my upcoming holiday parties. Plus, I needed a casual New Years Eve outfit idea, so this sequin jacket would be perfect!

Pairing this Tart Collections sequin jacket with loose, distressed, straight-leg jeans worked out perfectly! I love the edgy-glam look for a casual New Years Eve party, or any daytime activity. This is a great girl’s brunch outfit idea too! For New Years Eve, I plan to wear this exact outfit but I will switch out the daytime handbag for this cute little number by Valentino. You can see it styled here.

Tart Collections has so many fabulous and festive pieces for New Years; as well as everyday wear. You can’t go wrong with a Tart Collection piece! Plus, they are based right here in the San Francisco Bay Area, so their style is exactly how we dress. Love that!

You can find this fabulous sequin jacket and more at TartCollections.com. Use coupon code HOLIDAY20 now through December 30, 2016 to save 20% off your purchase. Love that!
