If you haven’t noticed already, I sure do love my denim and stripe tops. I especially love wearing denim jeans with a denim jacket, but stray away from wearing the same color of denim on the top and bottom (that always looks off in my opinion). I pretty much wear jeans on a regular basis, and while I love dresses and skirts, it’s not always conducive to my lifestyle. I walk and/or ride my bike every single day. Not to mention, Oakland and San Francisco are quite chilly in the spring and require layers at all times. So in order for me to feel stylish; either my top, shoes, jacket or purse needs to be a statement piece.

One of my favorite color combinations is mustard yellow and brick red. I have warm tones in my skin and tan easily (I am not one to try to seek out a tan since I am already fighting the war of aging), which makes me a good candidate to wear those colors. I definitely do not go overboard and always wear them as accent pieces.

Wearing a bootie with a small heel (2 -3 inches for walk-ability), gives an outfit like this a nice feminine touch and I don’t feel under dressed if I decide to go out for happy hour.
