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.

  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

  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

  19. Summer traditions are some of my fondest memories.

  20. It's really a struggle to maintain focused when there are so many activities going on around you. As long as you got to enjoy work together with pleasure then you're fine. Lovely dress !!

  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

  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.

  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.

  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.

  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.

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

  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.

  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!

  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.

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

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

  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.

  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.

Estet Fashion Week 2021

During my time of being a blogger I hardly missed Estet Fashion Week. This year was regular in that matter, I attended it as well. Actually I am quite happy I did because I spent most of it on Zanzibar island, enjoy my sunny vacation. It was actually worthy of reduction of fashion experiences. But I was very excited to mix the two joys and still watch Estet Fashion Week and look through the styles. This time I watched gown show by Indira Badiyar who takes specialty is formal and evening dresses and super adorable kids fashion show by Oksana Kazakova inspired by vintage pieces. I have to admit I enjoyed both. My outfit is not as cool or fancy as I would want it to be mainly because after my vacation with very simple and effortless looks I didn't feel like wearing too much items, opting for simplicity. Also my skin on hands is not perfect so I wanted to cover it. It also severely limits my options of clothes because I mostly have my hands bare. It was comfortable though, I f

Not real outfit

I am SO lazy! I'm into meeting with friends and family, outdoor activities (we tried sup boards and loved it) and boat. Generally, it's mostly the boat. We get up early, walk the dogs, run and than get back to work. I also received my second shot and, oh my, brain fog is real. I wanted to update my blog anyway so I am posting photos I took during the last weekend. It's not really an outfit it's simply a cute dress I wore. To be honest I don't really feel like outfits lately, simply throwing some dress and go. I promise I will wear and take photos of this dress properly styled or something I was wearing: new and fantastically comfortable dress from Befree Certina watch handmade bracelets Border Collie Surak accessory   Have a nice day, Lyosha  

Summer = picnics

I can definitely dub summer 2021 as picnic summer. It's been a half of it and we spend a lot of time picnicking. It's actually is a great change of pace and feels super peaceful. Surely our local park is to blame. We now have a big list of foods we love for picnic and things we better avoid. It makes me feel relaxed and sometimes makes me feel even more special. This time I really want to dress up a little. Lately we started having short rains almost every day which highly limits places for comfortable picnicking for example, this spot. It is actually a little isolated so every time we relax here it feels very private. This dress is one my favorites. I bought it on random on ebay some 10 years ago and never regretted it. I wear it several times a summer and always feel fantastic. It's silk and has a built in undergarment which makes it a little hot to wear during a hot day but who cares as long as I chill in the shadow and feel fantastic! I was wearing: bcbgmaxazari
