Coventry, I couldn’t possibly capture all your charm in a single shoot.  As I mentioned in my last post Coventry is fantastic for walking, shopping, dining and people watching.  Along the sidewalk you’ll find ample bike parking and wonderful metal sculptures surrounding each small tree plot each with its own theme and name.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love to purchase items that can stand alone as a unique and well crafted pieces.  I purchased this sweater last year for its unique dueling patterned sleeves that were oh so subtle in their pink and grey color palette.  My shoes with their mixture of suede and printed snake skin leather were nothing short of love at first sight.  Patchwork might conjure up images of a blanket however here my title nods to the idea of blending of subtle patterns, textures and hues that compliment yet contrast quite nicely.

What patterns or textures have you experimented with lately?

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Cheers – Penny

I love this sweater.  Love it.  Did I mention I love it?  The construction is perfect for summer with a linen/cotton blend on the front and a silk panel on the back, light and breezy.  I could live in this sweater, and I nearly do.  I joke it’s my mullet sweater: business in the front and party in the back!

This is the first year I’m playing a lot with stripes and floral together; something I wouldn’t have done a year ago.  I’m finding that following fellow style bloggers (found here) they individually inspire me to try combinations I never would have attempted; once I see it on someone else I think, why not try it myself?

A while back I posted about an event held at Room Service and that’s when I picked up this stunning vintage Lou Taulor Clutch; it has a built in mirror and I had to have it.

I hope you all had a wonderful 4th Independence Day holiday.  I found some much needed R&R and inspiration to keep me going; not to mention plenty of patios to lounge around on, cheers!

Thank you so much for stopping by.
