Uglich

This weekend I wasn't present because we went on a river cruise/weekend getaway to Uglich. It was so much fun! We relaxed on a deck, explored new town, ate without worries or thinking, watched movies, read books and played video games on our Nintendo Switches. If you ask me, I was super relaxed and happy with this little trip.
Uglich is a small town in Yaroslavl region. It has long history but it's mostly famous for being a place of death of the last tsar from Rurikovich dynasty (the first of Russia). Unfortunately the town had lost of fires and military destruction so there are not much left of it's early history. However classic Russian churches are present in big numbers and river Volga takes a very beautiful turn there. The oldest building of Uglich (or Ouglitch as they sometimes write it with latin letters) is behind my back on the first photo below. It was a part of original living quarters of the ruler. It is made of red brick, with tons of little details, it looks pretty impressive.




















I wore roomy jeans,  flip flops, a silk scarf to add some warmth, tiny uniqlo anti-wind jacket and Pirosmani studio t-shirt with necklaces (actually these metal pieces were fashion show invitations but I kept them wear as a statement necklace). It actually was a bit chilly there (colder than the forecast told) so I wore pretty much everything I had off photos.




I was wearing:
very old Topshop jeans
Pirosmani Studios t-shirt and necklace
Adidas flipflops
vintage Salvatore Ferragamo silk scarf

 

Have a nice day,

    1. It's a part of 'Golden Ring' of Russia. Basically if you ever travel to Russia I highly recommend to visit Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kazan and at least couple of smaller place from Golden Ring (better if you choose smaller places, more distant from Moscow)

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

Summer Boat Days

Happy Summer! Summer means boat to me. Yes technically we start during the spring (mid April) and send our boat to sleep in October but the boat is the best during summer especially when it's hot. Boat is my deep love, I love water and being by it. The feeling when you are at the whelm fills me with joy. I am so happy and so blessed to have a boat at my service. Literally my father's love to boats  definitely was inherited. During summer my husband and I often skip regular work place and stroll to the boat to work from the boat. it feels better this way, half way working, half way relaxing. I feel oddly productive there as well. I wore a simple hat and my favorite summer dress. It made me feel so comfortable and relaxed. Definitely perfect for summer and boat office. P.S. don't forget to apply some sun screen!   I was wearing: Forever 21 dress (old but deeply loved) hat bought on the street of NYC because I heeded a hat c/o Nordgreen watch bracelets made by husband
