Erin Kleinberg Skirt (Similar) & Shirt (Similar) // Primark Bag (Similar) // Boohoo Heels (Similar)


The sunshine just makes absolutely everything better! Here is a recent outfit which Christina & I shot on a perfect Spring day here in New York. How cool is this skirt & shirt from designer, Erin Kleinberg? I love mixing oversized & fitted items and these two were the perfect match (similar versions Here & Here). I also especially love the mix of leather & lace. The little details are always the best!

So you may have seen on my Instagram (@retroflame) & Snapchat (retroflame1) that I received some pretty exciting news on Friday! I found out that my visa application had just been approved!! You’ll know from my recent post about moving to New York that I’m currently here on a 1-year graduate visa. When moving here last September, I always knew that there was a chance that after the year, I would have to pack up & move back home again. It’s an extremely tricky (and stressful) process when it comes to securing this particular visa I applied for, so I genuinely don’t think I have ever been so relieved about something. I’m just absolutely over the moon! I really can’t even explain why I love New York so much but I just do and I knew that it was far to early to have to leave. The fact that I have (at least) another 3 more years here is the best news I could ever have asked for! And so the adventure continues… :)

Thank you all for your lovely messages & I hope you’ve had a great weekend!

Stylishly Yours,
