Traditions of summer

Summer hits hard many bloggers and I am not a big exception. I try to stay focused on my blog but let us be honest: weather, festivals, boats, friends, running and get-aways take more and more time. I do not regret it but I do have a little less content as of now.
Today I want to say hello to the start of the week and post and post photos from annual Moscow festival dedicated to history of all the world. Each year during the summer parks and boulevards become filled with people wearing odd old fashion clothes, doing unusual things and willing to tell you more and show you more. It is the time when you can easily meet a cowboy discussing stuff with Roman gladiator or find Latvian Shooter accompanied by Turkish harem lady in the shop nearby buying beverages. It is tons of fun and education at the same time.

And it is also a very hot time. Moscow hit as far as +30C and it holds for over a week now. Needless to say: we are fried but happy. I bet people wearing armor are not happy with the weather and I don't blame them. Thankfully I am a civilian so I can stick to my lightweight Indian dress, flip flops, sunnies and comfy waist bag and simply enjoy the day. And ice cream.











I was wearing:
Adidas flip flops
Arny Praht bag
dress from India, Goa
sunnies c/o iGlassesshop

 

Have a nice day,
Lyosha

  1. This is a beautiful dress on you. Historical events and fairs are always interesting, I wish I could have been there for it. I'd love to visit this spot....and Moscow some day.

  2. This fair looks to resemble the Renaissance Fairs we have here in the United States. They are always a good time when we look back on the history. I love summer so bring on the heat and sunshine! Love the pics.

  3. YES! It's so hard to stay focused on my blog in the summer, lol! That festival looks fun and I absolutely adore that dress!

  4. This festival looks great! And yes, it is hard to work during summer time. Luckily for me it's winter time here in Lima hah :)

  5. You're so right - come SUMMERTIME... That's when blog traffic takes a bit of a dive - and you know what?! I don't stress about it at all cause it's just life! I am actually happy people are OUTSIDE vs. on their computers or phones - ha!

  6. It is so true - in the winter when you want to be inside it is so easy to blog, but in the summer 100% you want to be out and about. This festival sounds so lovely as well.

  7. This looks so much fun. I love these types of festivals where people dress up. Takes us back in time, doesn't it? In that heat, I'm not surprised you were glad to be wearing your lovely dress and not dressed in one of those outfits. Those people must have been roasting.

  8. Wow, that sounds really hot! Thanks for the glimpse into your culture, the festival looks like a lot of fun!

  9. It's definitely understandable! The summer months always have so much going on. This looks fabulous! What a cool experience.

  10. I can totally relate! In the summer, we are trying to soak up every moment of beautiful weather, and we like to travel and have fun with the kids. It's ok to let things go a little.. although I also understand having more to catch up on!

  11. Lovely post dear! Have a great day! xx

  12. I went to a historical fest once as a kid. Its called the Renaissance festival here in GA.

  13. Amazing post! I love reading about summer traditions. I always used to go to a lot of flea markets with my parents :)

  14. You are right! Since the onset of summer I have been feeling lazy to write blogs and I am constantly on the mood to explore new places! :D

  15. Summer can be very unforgiving, especially in tropical countries like ours. Some regions here in the Philippines have 40-degree ++ temperatures during the summer!

  16. Looked like an amazing festival, full of history and wonder. Didn't realise Moscow got to those temperatures!

    1. it actually is normal during the summer. Yeah, I know, most of people think we have snow all the time here in Moscow but it's actually not more than 3 months a year overall. Bonus: normally there is no snow for Christmas

  24. This festival looks so great. I agree, it's hard to work during summer, the heat makes me want to just eat and took a bath

    ReplyDelete
  25. Looks like amazing festival. I would love to attend such events. Imagine in our city current temperature is 45C+

  26. You wait all winter for summer to arrive and when it does, you have so many activities that you're taking part in that you barely get time to relax!

  28. Summer is slower for blogging in some ways. It's just too enticing to get out and go!

  29. I really love that you ha don Adidas flip flops with your dress from India, Goa and
    sunnies c/o iGlassesshop. I wear my Adidas flip flops with everything as well.

  30. I have never enjoyed any other things unlike festivals. It looks pretty hot in there but it's all good. I really love the costumes, makes me want to jump right in.

  31. Oh wow, That was an amazing experience. Looks like a fun festival. I haven't tried joining in this ind of event. And this gives me an idea on what to do this summer.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Me and my kids are all excited for summary. We have already planned what to do and that includes going a festival. Soudns like a great idea after seeing your post.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Such a fun and great experience you had. That was an awesome festival. Looks like you really enjoyed it.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I think I get more excited documenting what happened to my summer so thankfully, I don't get really hard with summer. I tend to be a homebody too so maybe that's another thing to think of.

    ReplyDelete
  35. If you are feeling the heat I am resisting 50 degrees here in my place. 30 degrees sounds too cool to me as I type.

    ReplyDelete
  36. You had such a good experience. It looks like it was a great festival. I love summer. I can't wait to go out and have fun.

    ReplyDelete
  37. What a fun event to attend! I'm lucky to have pretty mild weather right now, but it could get really hot any day now. I love your dress too.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love outdoor history events like this. Always lots of fun and educational too!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I would love to see something like this. Summer brings out a lot of great activities from all over the world!

  40. How interesting. Well, in my town, the summer heat takes turns with the local rain; still, a nice place to be. Being considered a crossroad of cultures and civilizations, it offers international book festivals and film exhibitions even in the summer. As a child, I saw Tarkovsky and read Chekov; great experience.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Looks like such a fun festival! I love to attend local festivals here in Seattle - theres a big one called the Bite with lots of food!

    ReplyDelete
  42. This looks similar to our medieval faire. Your dress is super cute, and ice cream sounds perfect for a hot day! I'm the opposite of you--I have more time to work on my blog in the summer because I don't teach then.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Sounds like an interesting festival. I would love to get a chance to attend and meet some of the old time characters!

    ReplyDelete
  44. That sun is really blazing! Bet your ice cream was highly appreciated. The activities look very interesting; I can see what you mean by the different cultural clothing. I love your dress, breezy and perfect for letting the little wind there is pass through and keep you cool. I love your photos, too.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Yes summer is always hard time to blog, I love enjoy the sun and ice cream. Those activities looks really nice. You looks great.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I would be sitting by the window waiting all winter for summer. I love traditions, they set cultures apart. The dress looks stunning

    ReplyDelete
  47. Wonderful way to spend time lazing around having fun. I too would love to be in Moscow sometime and attend this festival.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I see you enjoy summer and the dress is super lovely!

  50. Summer time is a reminder of what matters -- moments with the family. I love the idea of getting out more and exploring.

    ReplyDelete
  51. We attended our first RenFest last fall...got all dressed up and played the part! So fun!

    ReplyDelete
  52. I love dresses that combine style and comfort together! Those are perfect. We have a similar festival here every August that highlights Scandinavian countries over 3 or 4 days. I love the music and dancing.

Dear-lover swimsuit

Summer is here. I can feel it in the air. I am so consumed by great weather. And warmth also means I spend more and more time on a boat. And wear my boat uniform way more often. Interested what I call boat uniform? It is simple: it is a swimsuit. And if it is sea themed it is even better. Today I want to write about my new favorite item a swimsuit from Dear-lover
I was so happy to receive this swimsuit. the style was great and I really wanted something reminding me of sea. I think white and deep blue do so. Also one piece is not that easy to find when you are petite and don't opt to wear kids styles. I was excited with any option for Wholesale Women's Clothing but swimsuits are very special for summer. I am very happy with it.

The swimsuit fits nicely, the color stay still, the zipper on a back is very secured and hidden so I am sure no accidents might happen. The material dries fast enough. Also there are some small pads to make your chest look even better and provide some s…

Larnaca is love

More travel outfits! O really wanted to show you the final shots from Cyprus last February today. I loved this vacation so much! I do hope to come back there next year. This is the outfit I wore several times but it was captured during my the final 24 hours of the trip in Larnaca. We made a nice Cycling trip of 100 km to get here and after reaching the goal took a long walk next to the sea. Visited couple of well known and love antique shops and generally chilled. Shirt kept me warm, dress made feel pretty and flip flops made my tired after cycling feet happy. Perfect harmony.
I don't think any post about vacation is complete without a bunch of sightseeing shots so there you have it:







And several more photos from Limassol. There was a festival with a little scary and funny huge dolls. I want you to see that too:







Dear Lover, dress

Remember last week I promised you to show my new dress? Technically you might already see a  sneak-pic from our boat last week but still. So I am going to tell you about my next casual summer dress from Dear-Lover
At first I will tell you about the dress itself. This Dear-Lover wholesale dress is charming! It easy to wear and doesn't ask for many accessories. it is colorful but not too light in color so I don't need to worry about it getting dirty too easy (hello short summer trips and parks with sitting on the grass moments). It is made from a very good material which doesn't get wrinkles. Overall: perfect for casual days, will pack it for trips.

Secondly I want to tell my shopping experience. It was easy to pick and look for items. The delivery was super fast. I am so thankful for the brand to ever offering me to cooperate with  Wholesale Women's Clothing. I am super pleased with everything about the cooperation. Thank you so much Dear Lover! This shop is a Lover…
