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.





I don't know why but I do have a soft spot for Zayachiy Island (Rabbit Island) and Peter and Paul fortress. This place is probably my favorite to relax and chill and I never miss an opportunity to walk there a little. Plus it's super close to my favorite park, Alexander park. So once again I have taken most of my photos there. Just sun, comfort and lots of laughs. Below a shot from postal bridge with the same outfit and a tiny pitch of city shots.









I was wearing:
Unqlo jeans and hello kitty top
Adidas flipflops

 

Have a nice day,

  45. I just got a wonderful postcard from St. Petersburg, and it is beautiful place. I want to see the palaces. I think it is because I was fascinated with the royal family since I was little.

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

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

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
