I don’t want to jinx it, but I think Spring may have officially arrived here in NYC! After spending the last 3 months in black jeans and leather pants, it was such a treat to be back in white jeans once again last week. An All-White look complimented by nude & camel tones will always be a favorite of mine. A lot of you were asking about this camel jacket when I posted it on my Instagram and although it’s an old purchase, I found a really similar one for you HERE.
“You don’t have to be have to be great to start.
But you have to start to be great.”
Ever since I shared my exciting news with you on Monday, I literally can’t begin to explain all the absolutely lovely messages I’ve received from you. Of course, there were congratulations messages (oh and a ‘I thought the news might be that you got engaged to Tommy’ message, haha!) but more than that, there were countless messages telling me that I ‘inspired you’. Now I just want to be the first to say that personally, I don’t see myself as an inspiration. I’m 24 years old and have a long long way to go and a lot to still go through, so I never want to be seen to give advice in a know-it-all type of way. I promise, that’s never my intention. But honestly, the stories you’ve shared with me about my video giving you the push to finally start that business, finally launch that blog, finally quit that job or finally make the move to somewhere you always wanted to go genuinely stopped me in my tracks. It was a mix of messages from girls younger than me, girls the same age as me but also women in their 40’s & 50’s and I don’t think I’ll ever forget the feeling it gave me. I screen-shotted as many as I could to have to look back on because honestly, you should have seen how happy they made me. Happy that all this content here on Retro Flame is helping you. Helping you to realize that absolutely anything you set your mind to is possible and all you have to do is just get started. Small steps every single day is the key and I promise you that you’ll get to where you want to be sooner than you realize.
So again, THANK YOU so much from the bottom of my heart for your support over these past few days. I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited about something and I’m so genuinely happy to have you all as followers and friends.
Hope you’re having a great week so far!
