“Whenever you find yourself doubting how far you can go,
just remember how far you have come. Remember everything you have faced,
all the battles you have won and all the fears you have overcome.”

This beautiful Three Floor Dress is another new addition to my wardrobe. Anything with a drop-waist always catches my attention. Three Floor is definitely one of my favourite brands to wear. It’s a brand full of amazing quality, quirky styles and vibrant colours and I’m always wanting something new from their site. On my wishlist at the moment is this velvet dress, cut-out jumpsuit & fur-collared coat. Which is your favourite?

This time last year, I was graduating from my Business Degree back in Ireland. Fast forward 1 full year…..I’m living in New York City and I’ve been here nearly two months now (what!?!?). It’s crazy how much can change and happen in just one quick year. I think we all go through stages (especially in our 20’s) where we wonder what exactly is ahead of us and how we are going to successfully achieve our hopes & wishes? I’m always a little hard on myself and always want more, but this week I came across the above quote and it really made me stop & think. If you had told me three years ago when I started Retro Flame that I’d be here sitting in the cutest little cafe in NYC, sipping on my Americano while writing a post for a blog which has become more than I ever could have imagined, I wouldn’t have believed for one minute that it was possible!

It’s so important not to get caught up in worrying about all that we have left to do but instead, recognize all that we have achieved already. Look back and recognize how far you have come! We have to remember that what we now have was once among the things we only hoped & wished for. Always keep surprising yourself.

Hope you’ve all been having a great week,

Stylishly Yours,
