If you just looked at the above photo, don’t worry, I was not run over by a car during this photo shoot. That is our friend in the car who laughed a little bit when he saw us shooting photos, and we quickly moved aside for him. His car looks much closer to me in the photo than it actually was! haha I digress. . .

How fabulous is this studded moto jacket! It is designed by San Francisco Bay Area based fashion brand Tart Collections. I love love love Tart Collections! Not only are they based here in the Bay Area, they make the perfect, most fabulous attire for our California Casual lifestyle. Love that!

This moto jacket has the most intricate studded design. To make it even more appealing, the jacket is vegan leather. Love that! So very Bay Area šŸ˜‰

Since our weather has been chilly lately, I have been wearing this jacket over a thin sweater; as pictured in this post. The jacket itself it not too thick, so when the weather starts to change in the spring season, it will be easy to transition with a long sleeve tee underneath, then short sleeves. It is perfect for staying warm when the fog rolls in this spring!

Tart collections run true to size. I wear a 6/8 and this jacket is a size medium. It fits perfectly! You can find this jacket, and more fabulous pieces online at TartCollections.com.

Lightweight bomber jacket for summer into fall

Bomber jackets are the “bomb” right now. šŸ˜‰ I have a light pink bomber jacket, which you can see here, that I am in love with. It is medium warmth; not too heavy, but not lightweight. In the summer, I usually need a lightweight jacket to combat the morning fog; and also to help transition into the fall season.

Denim jackets tend to fit the bill when a lightweight jacket is in order. But, sometimes a denim jacket is a bit too obvious. So when I spotted this lightweight bomber jacket by SheIn, I was thrilled! Not only is it priced under $40, it is lightweight; making it easy to wear now, and into the warm fall months. Love that!

This lightweight bomber jacket is such a great alternative to a denim jacket. It can be worn casually, or it can add a little “street cred” to a skirt or dress. It really makes keeping warm on foggy days fun! I am looking forward to pairing it with jeans, and booties, when the fall season rolls around.

What is your favorite way to combat the fog?

Quest and Quality SmileSolarĀ solar powered watches are nothing short of amazing! I am in love with my cute, new,Ā Q & Q watch. It has pictures of red and green apples on it, an uber cool watch face, and it is powered by the sun! Eco-Chic = LOVE!

Since wind up watches are a thing of the past, the majority of watches in today’s marketplaceĀ are battery powered. When battery-powered watches first came out, they offered the convenience of not having to wind up your watch. This seemed so modern and high-tech at the time! Of course, as time moves forward (pun intended), the battery powered watch is becoming passe, and the solar powered watch is new, now, and cutting edge tech. Isn’t that what we love here in Silicon Valley? Of course!

The Quest and Quality SmileSolar watch is powered by solar. This means you never have to run to the watchmaker, and leave your watch for a week, in order to replace your dead battery. It also means you don’t have to worry about the disposal of said battery, and it’s impact on the environment. Love that!

Not only does the Quest and Quality SmileSolar watch eliminate the need for an eWaste battery, it is made partly from recycled products. Now that’s eco-chic šŸ˜‰

I have found my Quest & Quality watch to be an extremely accurate timekeeper. Of course, I watched my iPhone time in order to make sure it isĀ keeping time, and it is! I also found it worked even when the sun was not shining. It seems to hold it’s charge for a long time! Love!

I am excited about my Quest and Quality SmileSolar watch and have decided this watch collection is perfect for giving as gifts this holiday season! I cannot wait to surprise my loved ones on Christmas morning with fabulous watches by Quest & Quality.

I would also like to give a shout-out to the faux fur jacket I am wearing in the photos above. It is really soft, warm, and cozy. It is perfect on cold days! I cannot wait to wear it more often this fall, and upcoming winter season. It also comes in ivory, and would make a great holiday gift. It’s under $250!
