New York here I come!


You can HYPE on Lookbook.nu HERE

Skirt – New Look
Galaxy Jacket – Sugarlips
Sunglasses – Filthy Magic
Spike Necklace – Topshop (sale)

So happy I found time to do one last look before I leave. I’ve been dying to properly show you this galaxy jacket from SugarLips. I posted a picture on my Instagram (@retroflame) a while back, but it’s only now that I’m getting a chance to do an outfit post with it. It’s the cutest little jacket & I absolutely love the print. I saw a girl on Lookbook.nu wearing it one day while I was browsing in the library & I literally just ordered it straight away. As you may have guessed, it’s in the suitcase for New York :) The skirt is from New Look,  I bought it in January….& I think this is the first time I have actually worn it. I am such a disaster ! I wasn’t sure if I was totally mad about it because the material is really heavy, but I really like the way it has turned out styled with this jacket. The necklace is from a recent Topshop sale & the glasses, which you have seen me wear loads before, are from Filthy Magic. Hope you like :)
So…..tomorrow is the big day -I’m off the New York !! I’m not going to lie, I’ve had butterflies in my stomach for the last few days…I’m a little bit nervous about the whole thing but also SO SO EXCITED :) I’m flying really early in the morning & I honestly don’t think I’ll be getting much sleep tonight ! My bags are pretty much packed at this stage (Thank God)….& I think everything else is sorted too. There’s so many forms, documents, etc. to bring too, so I’m really worried that I’ve forgotten something…but fingers crosses I haven’t. It was seriously difficult deciding what clothes to leave behind in the end, I just kept telling myself that I’ll be buying things there so that has been a little help. I’m visiting the office where I’ll be interning on Monday…I cannot wait ! I’ll be taking loads of pics for the first few days anyway, so I’ll have loads to show you & hopefully some outfit posts too.
Yesterday, I reached over 50,000 views on my blog !! – I honestly can’t say thank you enough to all of you who read this little blog of mine. When I started it first day, I never imagined it would ever do this well & I really have enjoyed the experience so far. So thank you so much :) While I’m in NYC, I’ll be updating my Facebook Page & Twitter really often because it will be the easiest for me, so feel free to like/follow to see what I get up to :) I’ve packed loads & loads of business cards, so I’m really going to try my best to make the most out of this Summer. I’m so lucky to have this opportunity & I really am going to make the most out of every minute I am there. So wish me luck guys & stay tuned for all the posts from the Big Apple :)
Have a fab weekend !
Stylishly yours,
