“It’s a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you’re ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is
ever ready to do anything.  There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now.
And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any.” – Hugh Laurie

My style varies a lot, but I fully believe that were will always be a girly touch evident in my outfits. What is it about these kind of dresses that make you just want to twirl around? Julia & I had so much fun shooting this look at my old college in Galway, NUIG. I’ve been a huge fan of Alice & Olivia since my Summers in New York, so when I saw this white lace dress on Jules B (It’s now on sale here), I just had to try it! The shape, the open back, the lace, the quality…everything! It’s a dream dress to wear. I added a little colour through this stunning Vivienne Westwood Bag (Similar Here) and topped off the look with my favourite jewel sandals from Daniel Footwear. I think I can honestly say that this was one of the most fun outfits I have worn in a while :)

You may have seen yesterday on my Instagram (@retroflame) that I’ve finally booked my flights to move to New York at the end of August! I’m going to be moving there for one full year and I just couldn’t be more excited. I’ve started the job-hunting process today and the next step will be looking for accommodation (SO much to do!!), so if anyone has any tips or advice, I’d absolutely love to hear from you. I’m definitely quite nervous about making such a big move, but I’m a big believer that we all need a little challenge from time to time in order to progress. Just two more months until I’m back in the city which has my heart :)

Hope you’re all having a fantastic week so far!

Stylishly Yours,
