What’s In a Name?

Keira Lennox, style and beauty blogger, Lifestyle Blogger

Can you believe this blog is five years old? Me neither.

You may notice the URL is different. If you didn’t, no worries; that means I did something right with the domain switch and the old links are transferring without a hitch. In which case, hurrah!!

After many moons of writing under A Pretty Penny, it feels like the right time for a change.

When I started the blog in 2010, the name made perfect sense; I wrote about thrifting, making my own accessories, and creating cute outfits on very limited resources. Now that I’m older and in a different place in my life, it feels a little inauthentic to tell you about my favorite $60 t-shirt or Charlotte Tilbury bronzer using that same blog identity. In some ways I’ve outgrown A Pretty Penny, and that’s okay!

Rather than throw in the towel or start a new blog — there’s so much good stuff in the archives — I changed the URL. It’s a minor adjustment in the grand scheme of things, but it feels like the start of a fresh new chapter.

To keep things simple, the new URL is just my name. Now all my social media channels are cohesive: you can find me on Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and Pinterest as ‘keiralennox’.

And for those of you who thought my name was Penny for all these years, it’s nice to meet you! I’m Keira. ;)

#OOTD: Crossover Pants

A Pretty Penny, Style Blog, Zara Crossover Pants, Everyday Style, OOTD

{ Zara pants; LOFT tee; Gorjana bracelet (via complimentary Rocksbox subscription); Nine West sandals (Hautelook); Kenneth Cole bag; Cole Haan sunglasses (ON SALE!) }

My mom ordered these pants on final sale from Zara — always a gamble — and when they didn’t work for her, she passed them along to me. They’re a smidgen too big, but I’m not mad at the extra room; especially on a Monday when I basically want to wear pajamas to work.

If you like your daytime PJs fancy, I love this black silk style from Rebecca Minkoff. ;)
