W.25th, oh how I love thee. There is never a shortage of people to see, things to do, beverages to imbibe and bites to eat. The fantastic West Side Market acts as the amazing backdrop to the entire area and only slightly less famous is the Market Square which sits directly across from the market on W.25th, and where this shoot was taken. The open air space recently got a makeover and it’s perfectly suited for lounging around and taking in the sites and sounds of the city. Check it out if you haven’t already, you won’t be disappointed.
I must profess my love of a good patterned pant! You may recall here here I sported another pair I’m currently in love with too; honestly I think I wear one of these pairs at least once a week! Here’s why I love a good pattern: 1) They offer a whole lot of interest without you having to do a thing! 2) They hide a lot; from a accidental spill at lunch to the creases in the fabric that occur as the day wears on. 3) With a small pattern, they almost become a neutral and often offer you several color options from which to play up.
What are you currently in love with in your wardrobe?
Happy fall and thank you for stopping by!
Cheers – Penny

Every student I know is now back to school and in the swing of things, whether they want to be or not. I thought it fitting to again visit one of my favorite little slices of Cleveland on Larchmere Boulevard and shoot outside of Loganberry Books. The space inside is just as interesting as the mural on the outside, upon entering you’ll find lots of nooks and crannies to get lost in while exploring all the amazing topics you’ll find in print. To me, although I live in a digital world, I still love the touch and feel of turning pages as I read; there’s just something timeless and soothing about it.
Along with books and back to school activities there was always the fun of shopping for new clothes, that perfect outfit to show-off your first day of class! I don’t have many occasions anymore that call for such dramatic planning and unveiling of something new, however in the spirit of things I did go and treat myself to a new pair of sunnies; and at $12 how could I pass them up?
I hope you are finding your stride as routines seem to be settling in as fall quickly approaches. The sunlight fades a little earlier than I want and I’m not quite ready, yet, to don an overcoat or sweater; I hate to admit it but am starting to get that itch.
Enjoy the fleeting moments of summer and thank you for stopping by. Cheers – Penny
