Hi there! I’m Keira Lennox. I’m a small town girl from the sunshine state with an affinity for bookstores, iced tea, thrift shops, comfort food, and deep discounts. I live miles and miles from the nearest H&M, I don’t read Vogue, and I can’t tell you who’s sitting front row during Fashion Week; but I really love clothes. Especially when I can find them on sale.
I started A Pretty Penny in the spring of 2010, after stumbling upon the world fashion blogging and falling head-over-heels. I wanted to create a little space of my own to share my take on real-life style on a real-life budget.
Shortly after launching the blog, my husband, Chad, and I made the life-changing decision to leave our corporate jobs and take the reigns of his parents’ successful flower shop. We didn’t know the first thing about flowers or small business ownership, but with a lot of faith, patience, and elbow grease, we’re making it work one day at a time.
These days, you’ll still find the style and beauty posts of yore; but they’re peppered with snippets of our blooming business, the occasional easy-to-follow DIY project, stories about my life, and glimpses into my kitchen.
