Volokolamsk trip

Remember I told you about small trip? After we ran on Sunday (my post before shared my experience and outfit) we took time to visit bigger location, town of Volokolamsk just 6 km from the start area. The town is pretty old and it has kremlin. Sounds like a must visit if you pass by! It was first mentioned as Volok Lamsky in 1135 and it was exactly what it was called: a land transfer way for boats from one river to the others. The biggest is called Lama. As simple as that. The kremlin isn’t big and original walls didn’t live up today being built of wood. You can still enjoy the moats and brisk arch/entrance followed by narrow stairs. The inner buildings are mostly churches and the museum. I’d say you’ll need an hour and a half to explore everything in the area.






I wore new jeans. I didn’t think it would such a great fit on me. I originally tried it on as a gag. Now I barely want to take it off (traded it for a dress though). I had other things to do scheduled for the day so I am all about comfort. The top I am wearing is one of my ultimate faves because of the material, it’s a rare item for me as I have it multiple (three) colors.



This post is not complete without some sights. enjoy.









This a wolf from the museum. It was the last thing you see in the museum (it's by the exit) and is super funny.


I was wearing:
Monki top
Befree jeans
Fila sneakers
Volokolamsky rubezh medal

 

Have a nice day,

  6. Looks like a really fun experience checking out the Kremlin and the churches of Volokolamsk. Glad those jeans were comfortable and flexible for taking all of the pictures of the amazing looking buildings and church. Nothing worse than a tight pair of pants.
    By the way, that wolf has the craziest teeth!

    1. I knew I should post the wolf. As for architecture such roofs are not common, mostly the roofs are flat, the similar shape for roofs is mainly used for churches. That is definitely unique.

The last day of Summer was the hottest in Moscow during the whole recorded time. I didn't fully enjoy it frankly having tons of things to do. And so I did with the first day of fall as well. I kinda wished I was myself on the photos below: chilling and relaxed on a boat.
Today I don't only want to show the wonderful idea of boat style transitioning outfit but also show you my new item. So if you happen to be on a boat take a cardigan. On water even slight wind might feel colder especially when fall is right there. however it might be good to swim or sunbath so you might want to wear a bikini. Light cardigan is on to go item for such moment: just throw it right onto your swimsuit and enjoy the comfort and beauty. This purple babe is from Dear Lover. The they both wholesale and retail options so you will definitely find what suits you best. There are tons of cardigans and it is a joy! I have to admit when I feel the breath of autumn I tend to look at all the cardigans out there.…

St. Petersburg

It's been a month since our vacation but I still haven't posted everything about it. Talking about crazy August that is. It's middle of September already but it did fly by. So much to catch up on. On the bright side we finished the big apt repairs and have extra spare time. Yay for anything. And we did actually get a lot of 'yays' last weekend. If you follow my Instagram you might already saw a night cycling race and a run in rural Serpukhov the next day. It was so awesome, I feel rebooted. As for my post today I am posting my outfit from my trip in August to St. Petersburg. Comfortable, casual look to explore and move around a lot. I've been to this city numerous times, I don't need a map unless I go somewhere exotic or want to know the exact amount of time to walk from A to B. It is always a huge joy to me to be there. Funny thing I disliked the city before my I met my husband and saw his home city with his eyes.

When you grow up you want to be... an astronaut?

Who did you want to become when you were little? I bet a lot of you said Astronauts, I have friend who want to be alien when he grows up. I can't really say I am a grownup (not age wise for sure) but I am always curious about space. That is my little excuse to be posting this today: sharing my experience from Zvezdny Gorodok (or Star City) in Moscow region. It is a place established and opened by the famous Yury Gagarin (first man is space) and it still accommodates astronauts before and after they trips. For example not long before there were people from India there. And they also have a super interesting museum. People who work there are very passionate about their job so you don't need much to get them talking. I received a good story about salmon suit just because I stared at it longer than she thought uninterested person would do. It is intended for water but was never used as there never was a water landing case. Except of one time when two people landed on a lake in ear…
