Ok so it’s just two weeks until I’m moving to New York for the Summer -I can’t believe it’s so close! So I’ve started to do a little online shopping in preparation. As you know, I spent last Summer there also and definitely learned the importance of having good ‘basic’ pieces. New Yorkers love their investment pieces and this especially applies when it comes to accessories. I’m planning on packing lots of simple dresses and simple clothing in general, so I’m on the search for some affordable but chic shoes, bags, sunnies and jewellery. 

As I’m interning, I’ll have to bring a selection of heels but because I’m only bringing one suitcase I’ll have to pack heels which will bring me from day to night. I’ve invested in a few pairs recently but I also adore the Topshop ones above -especially the plain white ones which are the ultimate all-rounder. My typical day in New York last Summer would involve me leaving my house at 7/8am and often not returning back until late that night, so I definitely learned all about the magic of big bags! You need to be able to carry whatever you need for the full day, so I love the size of the Boohoo bags on this wishlist. Oh and lets not forget that candy pink chanel bag -I’ve never come across something as cute!! I’ll also be packing my new favourite hat, the Fedora, lots of Sunnies (you can never have too many in NYC) and of course, a selection of statement necklaces – including a few from my Retro Flame Shop. Oh and incase you missed it, I’ve sourced some really cool sunglasses for the store, so keep an eye out for those in the coming weeks.

Lastly, I recently saw Jennifer Lawrence rocking the simple metallic belt trend and since then I’m on a mad search for a similar one. I don’t think you can ever go wrong with a simple gold belt, so do let me know if you’ve seen one like it.

Now all I have to do is win the lotto in the next two weeks….

Hope you’ve all been having a great week!

Stylishly yours,
