Quick Catch-Up and New Online Shopping Finds

August Catch Up

Hi everyone & Happy Friday! I hope you’ve all had a great week. It’s been a while since I posted here on the blog (took a mini break while I was at home in Ireland) but it feels great to be back typing again. As you may have seen on my Instagram (@Retroflame) & Snapchat (@Retroflame1), I’ve spent the last 3 weeks at home & just got back to New York on Wednesday. It was such a lovely break and I honestly think that taking a couple of weeks out of your normal routine every now & again is the BEST thing you can do. Both Kaelin & I feel like we have a whole new lease of life since we got back and are excited for the month ahead. My plan for August is definitely to dive back into work but to also enjoy the last bit of Summer here in New York. It really is such a fun time in the city! I plan on spending this weekend getting organized again (my bedroom needs a little overhaul) and also catching up with friends…. & then from Monday onwards, we’re back to our regular posting schedule. New blog posts every Monday, Wednesday & Friday and new videos ever Tuesday & Thursday. SO many new ideas after my few weeks break, so stay tuned for lots of posts over the next month.

Also, on another topic (back to the important stuff, haha), I did a little bit of shopping while I was home. Did you see my ZARA haul? I’m usually kind of over the Summery stuff by the time August comes around but seeing as I’m back to the crazy New York heat, it’s still a little too early to go into full Autumn-mode just yet. So I usually just look out for some classic pieces that I can wear both in Summer & Autumn, to keep me going. This black dress is one thing that caught my eye straight away along with these white runners which are so like my YSL ones (that I live in). And then for dresses, I like this palm print dress & this gorgeous baby blue shirt dress. Below are some more classic pieces I’ve come accross:

I really hope you spotted something you might like too and enjoyed this very quick catch-up. I’ll be back again on Monday with a longer, more chatty post so keep an eye out for that. And in the meantime, feel free to catch up on my latest videos (bonus one coming up over the weekend) and let me know what you think!

Have a great weekend,

x Erika
