News & Mini Shoe Haul :)

Hey everyone, blog posts have been a bit scarce in the last week – I do apologize – but it really has been a busy past week. Of course, preparing for NYC has been taking up the majority of my time, honestly I didn’t realize there was so much to do. But I’ve also been trying to catch up with friends & family before I jet off. It was one of my really good friends 21st birthday at the weekend, which meant that I was out both Saturday & Sunday night. It was definitely the best weekend I had in a long time & was the perfect last weekend at home :) Below are some pics of both my outfits & also a group picture of us at the party.

I got this baby pink vintage blazer while I was in London in April, I love the lace & it has the cutest little bow on the back. The skirt is from H&M, it kinda has a studded effect which it makes it a little more exciting than just a plain ol’ black skirt. The belt is from Penneys/Primark & the necklace is from Topshop (sale).
This whole outfit is belong to my sister. I had been wanting to wear these gold metallic shorts for ages – I think she said they were from H&M. My Mom & I bought her this purple shirt one day in London in a vintage store where everything was £10 -such a bargain !
All the girls & Sinead’s Dad :)
Although I said I’ve been quite busy..I’ve also been seriously treating myself in the last few days. Yesterday, my sister & I spent the evening in the most AMAZING Spa in Killarney. It was a present we got for Christmas & I really wanted to use it before I left. I honestly could have stayed there forever ! Then today I went & got a pedicure…& for those of you who follow me on twitter (@retroflame) you might have seen that pedicures are something that I’m not totally mad about. I have the most ticklish feet EVER. I honestly had to try so hard to keep the laughter in, she definitely thought I was crazy!
Spa :)

I also squeezed in a spot of shopping today, I really didn’t realize how many last minute bits there are to get before going away -this packing ordeal is proving to be quite stressful. As I am Interning in a Fashion PR company for the whole Summer, I’ve had to pack quite dressy clothes for day time & also have had to bring some more fancy pieces for any events I will hopefully be attending. Packing 3 months worth of clothes into ONE suitcase is pure torture…& it is so so tough deciding what to leave behind. I am praying that my case won’t be over weight at the airport, but by the looks of things at the moment -this is wishful thinking !! 
Here are some shoes I picked up today. The brown & gold sandals are both from penneys/primark & the black & gold flats were on Sale in New Look for just €10 :)

These ones are fab on !

I had hoped to do an outfit post for you this evening, but it hasn’t stopped raining since I’ve come home :( I’ll definitely be blogging again tomorrow & I’ll try my best to include one last outfit post before I go. I really can’t wait to just get going now, there’s going to be so many cool locations to shoot outfit posts over the Summer -it’s something I’m so excited about. I’ve been doing some research the past few days & it looks like I’ll be mostly shopping in vintage stores & markets while I’m away, so I should pick up some really cool bits to show you over the Summer :)
As I said I’ll be blogging again tomorrow, so watch out for that.
Hope your week is going well !
Stylishly yours,
Erika x

    Both of your outfits are gorgeous, Its funny you can always spot a blogger amongst a group of people! I am so looking forward to some spa days when i get home, only two months to go now! I reckon they are gonna love you in NYC, you can teach them a thing or two about style from our side of the pond!
