Outfit Inspiration: New Looks for Black Skinny Jeans

I am growing incredibly weary of the skinny jeans tucked into boots. I appreciate the practicality of the look and it's adorable on tons of people, but some days it seems like that's what 80% of the population is wearing. So I was looking for a little inspiration for other ways to wear them. Also, my new skinny jeans that I just bought are black, and it can be heard to not look like a Steven Tyler groupie when making outfits with them. So I did a little outfit inspiration!

These are my new jeans, but in black (I'm sure everyone has a very similar pair):

And I came up with the outfits below to go with them. Since versatility is sooooo important when going from the cubicle to real life and back again, some of these could play in both fields. Yay! Also, nothing in these is over $100... awesome!

Barney's Shoe Sale!

More shoe lust this week. Barneys is having their huge post-holiday sale and looking at the sale shoes is giving me a serious case of shoe lust. Also, in addition to the sale, they also have free shipping.... awesome. Check them all out here:,default,sc.html?start=0&sz=202

Here are my personal faves:

These boots would be amazing for winter when it is so hard to be cute and warm at the same time.

These two pairs would just make life generally better, like cupcakes do. :-)

Shoe Lust! My heart skipped a beat over these.

How amazing are these shoes, which conveniently enough at 20% off the sale price on Piperlime today?? These could totally step up any regular work day look.

Perhaps sweet and innocent?
Here with me

I don't generally love Lauren Conrad, but this is some adorable with these shoes too.

Celebrity Style: Lauren Conrad

And my own personal inspiration from these shoes. I think they could be a bit edgier with some subversive accessories and pops of magenta.... amazing!

The Ever Present Skinny Jean

This is a great little video about the ubiquitous skinny jeans, and new ways to wear them and how to style them. I love the look with the trench coat, and most of the looks could easily be made from things that are already in your closet.

Someday we will be over Sex and The City

But until we are over it, I plan to take some inspiration from Sex and the City 2 as much as I did the first movie and the show.

Check out Cynthia Nixon in here:

I love her look here in this picture. The color is amazing. Remember the first few years of the show, when Miranda was just a mess?

Any ways, I definitely want to hijack the feel of this look, but will need to add a little something to make it work and winter (brrrrr!) appropriate. Here is what I came up with:

Bag Inspiration!

I recently rented this AMAZING Lockheart bag from Bag, Borrow and Steal:

So I'm working on some outfits to create around it, because it truly is stunning. Being that I live in New England and it has been snowing for the past 4 days, the outfits have to be at least a little warm. Here is my inspiration board with some outfits from it. I'm feeling more fabulous already.

I think some sequins, leopard print and stunning platforms will really elevate the outfits to the level of the bag. You can click through for more info on any of the items. I'm in love with all of them!
