Time to process…Sweatshirts

Not your boyfriend's sweatshirt

Sweatshirts are everywhere now, and I love it!  First it was the pajama top trend, still going on so hop on it, and now these; being cozy and comfortable doesn’t have to be frumpy or have you endlessly promoting your old alma mater. Don’t get me wrong you’re not going to paint your kitchen in these but they are nice enough to wear with jeans for a night out with the girls or with a tailored pencil skirt for work; yes, these are now work appropriate – YAY!

I picked out a few examples of designs I would add to my closet today, any of them strike your fancy?

Thank you so much for stopping by – Have a wonderful weekend! Cheers – Penny

Coventry.  How you’ve changed over the years but somehow managed to keep your charm and alternative vibe.  I love walking the street and popping in all the shops and, when needed, partaking of a fine beverage at any of the several dining establishments.  Recently I’ve attend a slew of concerts and one of my favorite venues is the Grog Shop; the intimate nature of the venue makes you feel like you’re the only one the band is there to play for, just awesome!

Along the street you’ll never suffer from a shortage of fantastic people watching, that’s for sure. Another watering hole I used to visit frequently is La Cave du Vin.  The cozy atmosphere and vast listing of beverages can keep you company for hours.  The BSide Liquor Lounge & Arcade, immediately below the Grop Shop, offers a glimpse into the past with a huge array of console video games, too cool!

In keeping with the alternative vibe while feeling a little rock ‘n roll I slid into my Rock&Republic Jeans; a fantastic find from last year I picked-up at Kohl’s, if you can believe it!  Back in the day had you said faux leather it would have immediately conjured up images of seats in a poor man’s car; nowadays from a quick glance it’s hard to tell what’s real and what’s faux, a trend I’m happy to consume en mass.  Wine, maroon, blood red, or whatever you want to call it is still a major color influence this year and is one I plan to exploit.

Thank you so much for stopping by, Cheers! – Penny
