Heroic

It's very cold here in Russia. I mean very-very cold! We do all try not to spent time outside unless it's necessary. It was -14C when we took those shot but after what we had for couple of weeks it felt getting warmer. God, I miss summer. And spring. And autumn. OK, I miss everything but cold.
I called this outfit the heroic one due to cold. But that's not all I can say.
This sweater is over-sized and for men. And it's also extra-warm. My fiance's Grandmother knitted it years ago. I'm so sorry I didn't have chance to meet her or his Grandfather. They could have told me a lot about him for they took a huge part in his life and practically raised him. I used to wear this sweater for dog walks pairing it with my warm pants or jeans with termo-pants. I was walking with sweet Raidho when I realized how to turn this outfit is something really nice. Here is the result. Styled with rings, necklace, bag and (surprise!) nail polish.





   Raidho is here as well. He's tyring to say happy weekend!

 I was wearing:
handknitted by grandmother of Max sweater and gloves
Shoes I got from my mom
Tommy Hilfiger pants
Belt from my childhood
gifted jewelry
Alba bag
Raidho the dog
 

Have a nice day,
Lyosha

P.S. I think I should create more outfits like this one. The idea is very fun.

  2. At least you look good trying to stay warm. Belted sweater dress is a great fashion tip. You look beautiful.

    Thanks for your comment! I would actually want a little bit more flat ring than the one on my post, but on those ones Anjolee didn't have diamond like a crown. And that's my favourite cut. :)

Sergiev Posad trip

First trip this year. And with friends. I have visited this town many times and it's still lovely. I'd say the point of this trip was to get out of home and familiar places to enjoy something remotely like a trip. We did want to look for something distant or hard to get to or even taking a lot of time to get to. SO we have chosen Sergiev Posad. This town is closely tied with Russian Orthodox Church having tons of temples and a monastery. I highly recommend to visit it because they have a super delicious bakery inside, not a joke really. The museums were closed and it was a bit cold outside but we walked a lot anyway. And had a fine meal together. If you ask me, it is very close to perfection. As for my outfit... I wanted to keep warm, that is why it looks a lot like what I wear to walk my dogs, lol. I tried to make it all look more pretty with long scarf (I have a soft sot for it) and cute mittens. But that's it really. I was wearing: H&M scarf Tommy Hilfiger b

Hand Cream advise

Who feels motivated? Not me! I still going on with procrastination, lack of energy and also excess of sleep. I understand that extremely low temperatures affect me but still. With cold and increased amount of indoor heating I use more creams and generally skin care products. It's a big tip from me, don't wait for your skin to feel and look drier, apply moisturizer before it happens. It is even more important for your hands as it is not only the weather but also increased amount of washing and sanitizer affect your hand skin.  I decided to share a product review with my partner Nivea. Handcream is probably my favorite of all Nivea products in general. It is affordable, easy to access and it works. I love it that it smells less intense as other Nivea products usually. This particular hand cream was new to me, I haven't used it before. There was some aloe in it and I was super happy to receive it. Aloe is probably the best component for hand cream during winter for me. And t

Back with outfit

And I am finally back to outfit posting. I originally planned to post it simultaneously with my Instagram outfit but things do not always go as planned. Anyway, there you have it. Technically it's my last outfit of 2020 we wore it for our annual theater time. I can't way the play was good but it wasn't bad either, I saw a lot in common with my personal vision of 2020 as year here. I wore long skirt and a sweater here. I am crazy about funny pattern and I like now the colors mix. It's rare for me but both items are from the same brand, Akhmadullina Dreams. yes, it's Russian and I absolutely love it, mostly for quirky and funny prints and embroidery. My green sweater with bright fluffy red fox is from the same brand as well as my botanical dress. The boots are very old but I don't wear them often. I always wonder why, though. I should wear it more often.   I was wearing: c/o iGlasseshop glasses Akhmadulla Dreams sweater and skirt Empodium boots   Hav
