Before I start a weekend full of dressing up, I wanted to share this casual outfit I’ve been loving wearing. It’s a variation of my usual all black look changed up a little by my Adidas Superstars. I can see why everyone is absolutely obsessed with the athleisure trend lately – such a treat to be 100% comfortable but still also able to feel stylish.
I don’t know if it’s just me, but Fashion Week seems to just creep up faster & faster each season! This is my 3rd fashion week in New York and it’s promising to be another busy one. My first Fashion Week here was spent working with Olivia Palermo and this was an experience which gave me a real insight into how everything works. Being totally honest, it isn’t even half as glamorous as it looks on social media and in fact can be so so stressful planning everything down to the minute, but if you focus on not taking it too seriously (it’s fashion, after all)- it’s definitely a really fun time of year. This year, because I also work full-time, I had to be a little more realistic when planning my schedule. I have some fun events in the evenings and then will be attending shows Saturday, Sunday & Monday. The ones I’m really looking forward to are Rebecca Minkoff, Monique Lhullier, Sally LaPointe (Kendall Jenner wears a lot of her pieces), Proenza Schouler and the Tommy Hilfiger show is always a big highlight!
I have lots of cool looks to wear over the next few days, so be sure to follow along on Instagram (@retroflame) to see them first and then of course, I’ll be sharing everything from the shows & events on my Snapchat (retroflame1). First event is coming up tonight!
Hope you’re all having a great week!
