After black, I think grey is the colour I’ve been wearing the most as of late. Such a versatile colour which goes with almost everything! This grey fringe cardigan was a gem of a find (similar here) and paired with all my usual black accessories, this is now one of my go-to kind of looks for both work and casual-wear. Very similar to friday’s look, just with a change of outerwear. If you haven’t yet invested in a pair of leather trousers, you need to do it! Endless outfit opportunities.
“Be nice to everyone, always smile and never stop appreciating each new day.”
Another new week and with it comes another fresh new start. Trust me, just like a lot of you, I also struggle with Mondays (yes, even in New York) but I’ve come to learn that it’s all about how you approach it. A couple of Mondays ago, I received a snapchat from a follower who, unfortunately, has been very sick for sometime now. She told me that she loves to watch my snaps as it acts as a little distraction from a day more or less spent in bed while she continues to work to get better. It genuinely struck the biggest chord with me and ever since I chatted to her, it’s made me look at things a little differently. She explained how she plans on starting her very own blog while she’s getting through this tough time and her optimism and courage are something I now think about every single morning. Life will never be 100% easy for any of us. There will ALWAYS be ups and downs and there will be a lot of obstacles which come in our way. But it’s all about being grateful for what you do have and promising to make the most of each & every day new day.
Fashion week begins later this week here in New York and although I’m going to be super busy trying to balance both my job and the shows, I’m excited to show you guys as much as I can. As always, feel free to follow along on snapchat (retroflame1) to see everything.
Have a great one!
