I finally found the perfect turtleneck sweater for winter! Three cheers! There are so many cute turtleneck sweaters on the market this season. It makes it difficult to pick just one! I was thrilled when I found this rose turtleneck sweater for winter. It is super soft, the color is really pretty, and it was priced well under $100. Love that!

While many things in my closet can last a few decades, sweaters don’t last too long in my world. My handbags get caught in the yarn, my kids accidentally get caught in the yarn, things randomly get stuck in the yarn. . . do you see a pattern? I’m always finding holes, or getting stuck on things when I wear a sweater! So, when I was looking around for a turtleneck sweater this season, I wanted something that didn’t have super loose knitting, and was also reasonable in price. I am so happy I found this one!

The knit is not loose, yet it is really soft and cozy. The turtleneck is chunky, and keeps my neck covered and warm. The hi-lo hemline gives it a little bit of an unexpected silhouette, and the color is pretty. Who could ask for anything more?

I paired my new sweater with my favorite jeans from the Nordstrom sale last August. They are really comfortable and flattering. I wish they still sold them; and in more colors! I would grab a pair in every color if they made more colors!

Trying to make fall happen

We have been so lucky to get fog every morning the past couple of weeks. It feels like fall weather, and the fog has put my mind in a fall mood. I’m over summer weather, and really want fall to happen; let’s make fall happen!

It is really nice to be able to wear my fall jeans, and move my feet back into booties. I love being able to grab a scarf and cozy up in the morning when the temperatures are in the 50’s. Of course, the fog usually burns off, and we are left with temperatures in the 80’s by 3pm. <sigh>

I’m just going to pretend those warmer temperatures aren’t happening, and I am just going to make fall happen; it will happen! In the meantime, this outfit is perfect for volatile temperatures. I can add a scarf when it’s cool outside, and then wear it as-is for the rest of the day. These booties are comfortable, and the split shaft keeps them cool when temperatures heat up. Love that!

I wore this outfit the other day when I took my kids to Santana Row for lunch. We ate at The Counter and I tried the “Impossible Burger” for the first time. It was really good! If you haven’t tried it yet, definitely give it a go. I enjoyed mine with cranberries, cheese, pesto, and fries. It was delicious! After lunch, we went over to the Hello Kitty Cafe and picked up a few sweet treats for the family. I didn’t realize the Hello Kitty Cafe at Santana Row is a pop-up shop. It will only be on-site until spring 2019; I guess that qualifies as a long-term pop-up shop? haha, be sure to stop in before they pop away!

Brahmin Mini Priscilla review

As you know, I am a huge fan of Brahmin handbags. So, when Brahmin announced their new fall 2018 collection, I instantly fell in love with the new mini version of their beloved Priscilla satchel.

Despite it’s small stature, the Brahmin Mini Priscilla is quite roomy. As you can see in the photos above, the Brahmin Mini Priscilla easily fits my wallet, sunglasses, phone, lipstick and key with plenty of room left inside the bag. The interior of the bag offers a slip pocket and lipstick pocket, along with a zipper pocket. These are great for placing your phone inside the bag, or keeping smaller items neat and tidy.

The exterior of the mini version of the Brahmin Priscilla offers a hidden pocket on the back of the bag which is great for keeping a phone handy, theater tickets, or anything you want to reach quickly. The shoulder strap is detachable and easily clips onto the front and back of the bag. The strap is also adjustable so it can be worn over the shoulder or cross body. Love that!

I love detaching the shoulder strap and wearing the bag as a small satchel when I am more dressed up. It’s very chic and offers a semi-formal look. When the shoulder strap is attached, I feel like the bag is perfect as a daily bag, or as a casual purse. I love the versatility!

The croc stamping offers a high gloss which is very modern and chic. I love the elegant look of the bag; and all the compliments I receive when I wear it! This is a great workhorse bag if you don’t need to carry files or a laptop. It works perfectly for day-to-day life and can easily transition into the evening. Love!
