Chunky knit sweater and jeans

Wearing: sunglasses / statement earrings / fall lipstick / pink scarf (under $100) / chunky knit sweater / black long sleeve top / G buckle belt / charcoal jeans / caramel structured hobo bag (IT bag under $1000) / fall nail polish / lug sole loafers /

There’s nothing like cozy sweater weather! This chunky knit sweater is perfect for cool days, and for staying cozy. It’s chunky, not too warm, and ideal for fall days. Layer it with a long sleeve tee, and this chunky knit cardigan sweater can easily work throughout the fall and winter seasons. Love it!

I wore this cozy fall outfit the other day to wander around Stanford Shopping Center, and enjoy a delicious lunch at Neiman Marcus Cafe. I haven’t enjoyed a meal there since pre-covid; so it was definitely a treat! I mean, who doesn’t look forward to the consume and puff as an appetizer? They’re iconic!

My Mom enjoyed the tacos, and I ordered the special, which was a lobster sandwich. As always, our food was very yummy. Neiman’s Cafe can do no wrong! At least, in my opinion.

This was a meal we had both looked forward to as a post-covid shut-down goal. It was so nice to be able to go back for lunch! Which restaurants and/or places did you look forward to when everything started to open back up?

Fall 2021 IT bags under $1000

fall it bags under $1000

Fall IT bags under $1000 from top left: structured hobo bag / small tote bag (also a spring 2022 bag from the runway) / pouch clutch, large and small / convertible handbag with short strap and cross body strap /

There are so many fabulous handbags to covet this fall season! Thankfully, several of the IT bags, and IT bag styles, can be found for well under $1000. This means we can all afford at least one IT bag; and we can also consider giving an IT bag this holiday season to a handbag fan on our list. Love that!

For 2021, and as we head into 2022, small and medium size bags are what we all need. Structured hobos, pouch clutches, and small totes are the silhouettes of the moment. We will also see a resurgence of the soft hobo very soon; making the hobo style the most important handbag silhouette as we move into the new year. So, if the structured hobo isn’t your thing, you can safely invest in a soft hobo as the style will begin to rise in 2022.

I’m loving the return of the hobo, and pouch clutches are such as a fun style! What is your favorite IT bag trend right now?

As temperatures drop, we are all seeking cozier clothing to get through the day. This pink scarf is the right weight for fall, and it comes in a variety of pretty colors! I am currently wearing this pink version, but I also own one in grey, and forest green. Love!

Casual clothing is really hot right now as people are out and about, yet seeking comfort which is still fashionable. These distressed jeans are really popular right now as well as this long sleeve, off-the-shoulder, over-size top. Finish the look with a classic IT bag, and these comfy, water resistant, lug sole boots; it’s a fabulous fall look! (I would also add the scarf) Love it!
