Sum of Parts

What is an outfit, really, but the sum of its parts?  When I get dressed each day a lot of factors go into what I drape on my body including my mood, the weather, if I’ll need to wear the outfit from sunup to sundown and the story I want to tell to strangers that day; can be overwhelming at times.  This day I knew what I put on that morning would need to carry me through until the evening.  The heat predicted for the day demanded my hair to be tucked behind my ears, my feet needed to breath and my clothes had to be flowing; everything comfortable in its own way.

Cleveland’s weather is starting its menopausal swing into fall; some days it’s in the 60’s and the next day in the mid 80’s. I suppose it’s better to ease into the crisp fall air rather than mother nature simply flipping a switch.

Enjoy the changes occurring in your area of the world as the seasons transition; they always seem to slip by too quickly.

Thank you for stopping by, Cheers! -Penny

If you’ve been following my blog, Twitter or Instagram account you’d know of my affinity for a patio during the summer.  I was so excited to be able to shoot on one of the best kept “secrets” in Cleveland, the patio of the Velvet Tango Room, or VTR as the regulars call it.  It truly is one of my favorite places to just chill with a fantastic craft cocktail, second to none.

In addition to a good patio, I’m also a huge fan of linen clothing in the summer.  The way it drapes, the way it breathes, the lived in look you create as the day drifts by.  For the longest time I hated linen; the ironing along with all those pesky wrinkles, not worth it.  One day I decided to, instead, look at the ironing as setting a reset button on the item and getting it ready for a new adventure.  And all those wrinkles?  Those were nothing more than ‘laugh lines’ I’d create throughout the day as I interacted with friends and colleagues.

I do hope you’ve found some amazing adventures this summer, and stumbled across a few patios to kick back at and enjoy.

Thank you for stopping by! Cheers.
