Stripes & Polka dots
All hands on deck; my mantra when visiting any type of open air market. I’ve got to have my hands free at all times to browse, evaluate and purchase any treasure I simply cannot live without. These pictures were taken just before spending a lovely afternoon at The Cleveland Flea; if you’ve never been try and make a point to check it out. There are so many wonderful local eateries, artists and shops peddling their goods just waiting for you to discover something new.
My Cole Haan handbag is quickly becoming a staple for these types of outings. It’s just the right length to wear as a cross-body bag, big enough to hold a bottle of water and features an outside pocket to hold my money and any tiny treasures I happen upon. The color, too, will go with anything.
My polka dot shoes are my favorite purchase so far this year and every time I need a flat shoe they find their way on my feet. The dots add a fun element and their basic color goes with everything. If you’re leery about mixing patterns try wearing them apart from each other, this is a great way to try something new; keeping your patterns in the same color scheme will help ease the feeling of clashing as well.
Thank you so much for stopping by! Cheers – Penny
