Life has been so busy lately, my husband and I have not had a chance to go out together without the kids in months! In fact, we have only gone out once since the shut-down ended. About a week ago, we actually had a free Saturday evening, so we took advantage of it!

I have been to Flights in Los Gatos a handful of times with my mom for lunch, but my husband never had a chance to go. He had been missing out! Flights is a restaurant that serves different variations of a dish on the same plate; essentially a flight of food. It’s not only fun, creative, and fresh, it’s delicious!

My husband enjoyed a flight of skewers, while I ordered the seared ahi flight. We shared a plate of mixed mushrooms, and the french fries flight. It was a cool evening, and we ate on the patio, so I also ordered warm tea. It was perfect! The food was so good, and my husband was really impressed. He has a new favorite restaurant, that isn’t a sports bar! haha

Since I knew we would be on the patio, and Los Gatos is a California Casual type of place, I opted for my dark wash skinny jeans paired with my oversize, long sleeve top. To stay warm on the patio, I added my pink scarf. It was perfect for staying cozy outside on a cold evening.

If you are local to the Bay Area, be sure to try out Flights. They have locations in Los Gatos, Campbell, Burlingame, and Las Vegas (obvi not the Bay Area). If you go, make sure you get the french fries flight, it’s a must-have! If you love sushi, or fish in general, the seared ahi flight will knock your socks off. Yum!!

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?

Mansur Gavriel Candy Bag review

mansur gavriel candy bag review and description

pictured: Mansur Gavriel Candy Bag /

Mansur Gavriel has come out with a structured hobo! As you know, the structured hobo is hotter than hot right now, and with polished leather, it’s even hotter. This classic hobo silhouette was popular in the late 1990s, and this year it really is the most important style in handbags. Love!

The new Mansur Gavriel Candy Bag is a beautiful version of the structured hobo. It is made with strong leather and fine craftsmanship; what we have grown to love about Mansur Gavriel. The Candy Bag by Mansur Gavriel is a medium sized hobo bag with one slit pocket on the inside. It is roomy enough for everyday essentials, as well as a couple extra items such as a mask and a pair of winter gloves.

Mansur Gavriel’s Candy Bag has debuted in five colors; classic black with flamma interior, sky, golden yellow, caramel (my choice), and claret. It’s a good combination of seasonal hues, and classic colors.

I am loving my Candy Bag because the size is ideal for everyday use, and the bag itself is lightweight. The Mansur Gavriel Candy Bag fits nicely on my arm and stays put; something you would not expect from shiny leather. Mansur Gavriel always puts thought into how a bag fits and feels while being carried; one of the many things I love about the brand.

Many polished leathers scratch easily. This bag does not. I am not sure how Mansur Gavriel was able to treat the leather to make it not scratch as easily as other polished leathers, but they did it! Love that! It will occasionally get fingerprints and smudges, but those wipe off easily with a soft cloth. I will admit, I wipe off smudges with the bottom of my shirt; works like a charm. haha

You can find the Mansur Gavriel Candy Bag online here. Which color is your favorite?
