In with the New

Welcome to the new and improved Strutting in Skinnies!! 





Blazer: Helmut Lang (on major sale!!) | Tee: Zara | Jeans: Rag & Bone | Heels: Zara (old, similar here and here) | Bag: Kate Spade (old, similar here) | Sunglasses: Ray-Ban

After much consideration, I have decided to move my blog solely towards fashion, requiring a much needed name change. Now, coming up with a brand new blog name isn't exactly the easiest thing to do. Day after day, I would make lists and come up with less-than-satisfactory potential names, taking me right back to where I started. It wasn't until I got down to the heart of it and asked myself what item of clothing will always be a staple in my closet, despite the comings and goings of trends? Without a moments hesitation, skinny jeans was my answer, and seconds later Strutting in Skinnies popped into my head. And what better outfit to break in the new name than this one?! 

Hope you like the change as much as I do!

  2. Love the new blog look! I considered doing the same thing about 7 months ago when i switched to mainly fashion blogging. I chicken out though because it was confusing and I was afraid I would love my readers. Plus, picking a name was so hard! How did you switch? Was it easy?

    Love this look on you. It's perfect to reveal the new name (which I love)!

  5. This blazer creates a gorgeous, modern chic look. The outfit is beautifully balanced between neutral and dark tones. Delicate jewelry offers a light tough while the sandal heels keep a summer vibe.

  7. I am in love with that gorgeous Helmut Lang blazer. Coming up with blog names can be a lot more challenging and time consuming than one would think. It took me maybe a year to settle on a name I liked before I changed it. Love the new name! Have a great weekend!

  8. Fantastic look. Maybe add a statement necklace and I can see this working in the evening out on the town. Very pretty.
