There’s nothing like an oversized sweater on a cool, crisp day to stay cozy and warm. I love this one, which happens to be on sale right now, and available in other colors. Love that!

I paired this cozy sweater with my new Mulberry mini Zipped Bayswater. This classic handbag is roomy and chic. I am in love! If this is the first time you are seeing this bag, be sure to check out my review which I posted last week.

This was the perfect, cozy and casual look for a delicious lunch at Steamer’s Grillhouse in Los Gatos. One of my favorite dishes there is the Steamer’s Linguini which is pictured above.

I highly recommend this yummy dish! Of course, everything on the menu is good. You cannot go wrong with what you order! Steamer’s is a Los Gatos staple and has been around for years. They get busy on peak nights, so be sure to make a reservation.

Also, if you love cozy sweaters, this one is on sale. I am thinking of getting the grey one too!

Striped sweater and flare jeans

I love a striped sweater! I also love flare jeans. Together, they are the perfect go-to outfit for the fall and winter seasons. Love!

This fabulous sweater is made by Margaret O’Leary, a local San Francisco designer who designs and creates investment pieces to cherish forever. What I love about this sweater is that it is comfortable, extremely well-made, and fits perfectly. I cannot stop wearing it!

Of course, an investment sweater needs to be paired with an investment handbag. This black shoulder bag is another favorite of mine. I love that Mulberry works hard to keep their manufacturing process sustainable and their materials sourcing ethical. In addition, they use the highest quality leather on the market while keeping their price points at an affordable luxury level. Love that!

I wore this outfit to enjoy dim sum with my mom at Koi Palace in Cupertino. If you are local, be sure to check them out. The food is really good!
