Eclectic Eccentric. Say that three times fast!

Recently I was introduced to local shop owner Tracey Hilbert of, you guessed it, Eclectic Eccentric on Larchmere; this store absolutely has something for everyone!  New, old, classic or quirky you can find something to take home with you.  The holidays are right around the corner (did I just say that?) and now’s the perfect time to start planning your holiday shopping excursions; this is one place definitely worth the stop.

Now let’s talk about Leopard Print. It’s one of my favorites and, after typing that, I realize I need more of it in my life.  This pattern is so embraced all across the style universe it’s hard not to see it everywhere; from handbags to shoes, accessories to jewelry and outerwear to sweaters you can find it in, on and all around you.  It’s so universal it’s treated like a neutral by many fashion houses and you’ll see it paired with stripes, polka dots and neon.  My outfit is slightly on the more conservative side, but just wait, these pumps will be making many more appearances throughout the season.

Where can you incorporate a little leopard in your wardrobe?

Thank you so much for stopping by – Cheers!  Penny

Where did the summer go? I swear the older I get the faster time seems to fly.  Not complaining, really, just forces me to be present in each moment and appreciate every drop of sunshine, every interaction with neighbors and valued time with friends; on as many patios as possible!

If you’ve been following me along for a bit you’d know that one of my favorite little streets in Cleveland, and close to my home, is Larchmere; previous posts include here and here.  I love the eclectic nature of the stores and the array of eateries to enjoy, one of my standbys is the Larchmere Tavern where you’ll always find a friendly face and tasty bites; come often enough and you’ll start to recognize the regulars and perhaps become one yourself.

The season has finally arrived for overcoats, close toed shoes and muted tones; but I’ve never been one to immediately flip the switch to fall attire.  I’m fully embracing the black & white movement in fashion right now, it’s so simple and timeless; of course I have to throw in a pinch of color and chose to use orange, one of my favs, to help me embrace the lingering colors of summer.

Here’s to a smooth and gentle ease into the next season.

Cheers to Fall!
