Night out in Philadelphia

      I can not believe how warm this fall is. We haven't had any frosts even at night time yet. The temperature stays around 70 degrees everyday and evenings are still very warm. Yesterday we went to Philadelphia with our friends, we attended a concert.

      I decided to wear something extra comfortable and free, I didn't want anything tight or fitted. My choice fell once again on this skirt - flowy and without a tight belt, with a free sweater which gave me freedom in movement.

      It was a great evening... I felt very relaxed and cozy spending time with my great friends which of course was even better due to the right decision I made with clothes I was wearing.

Denim Dress

       When I saw this dress in a store I immediately imagined how many options of wearing it I could create in the whole year. I can wear it by itself in summer time, with T-shirts and  blouses in spring and fall, and with turtlenecks and sweaters for winter. Don't you love these kind of items?

      Of course, I bought it without any doubts. Today was a rainy day and on our way to see our friends we just stopped by Lowe's and asked the staff if we could take a few pictures for my blog. The cashier lady let us do it with a smile on her face. Thank you very much.

     The light for these pictures may not have been the best, but my mood was, because I really liked my new dress!

Do you have any garments in your closet that you can wear in any season?

Printed pants

      These pants I bought two years ago and since then haven't had a chance to wear them. The pants are a little too long but, even though I have a sewing machine at home and know how to cut and ham them, they are still hanging in my closet without any alterations.

      Today I really wanted to put on the shirt I recently bought at Anthropologie, but it wasn't easy to match it with anything from my wardrobe until I found these pants. Well..., they are still a little long, but I really like how these two pieces look together. In this situation I decided to find higher hills and and I think it worked out well.

      I really need to ham these pants and wear them more often next summer. They are so comfortable, stylish and well made. Linen is definitely one of my favorite fabric.

Back on track

      I am back from my home country full of good memories and a great spirit. I spent a wonderful time with my family and friends. It was so great to see everyone, we couldn't stop talking and sharing the latest news about each other. I felt blessed the whole time to be home among people who truly love me and care about me.

      But now I am here and I am very happy to be back. It may sound odd, but I belong to one of those people who finds a way to love both places with the same power. I have enough space in my heart to hold both countries and all people I know there and here.

      Today I want to show you a new top which I bought at Anthropologie right before my trip. I liked it because it can be worn by itself as wells as a part of layers in between seasons. I found it pretty difficult sometimes to find the right clothes in transition of seasons, because mornings and evenings could be pretty cool, but days are still hot.

Vacation time

      Today we are leaving for two and a half weeks to visit my family and friends in Russia. It has been a bit of crazy time since we bought out tickets. But we are ready to go - suitcases are packed, passports and tickets are in my bag, we are in our best mood waiting to meet with our family and friends.

      In Russia I will not be able to post any pictures of my outfits, that's why I hope you will come back to my blog in the beginning of October.

      Thank you very much for reading my blog. I will see you soon!

My big trip

      My big trip is coming up on September 14th and all I do now is just buying presents, pack and get prepared for my vacation. Evgeny and I are going to Russia for almost three weeks to visit our families and friends.

      Let me tell you that it is not that easy to set everything up between a full time job, find gifts for my friends and relatives, and take photos for my blog..., but I am getting there. Most of the presents are bought, one suitcase is packed and wardrobe for our travel is finalized.

    Today was a big day with the final shopping for my Russian girlfriends and my mom. We went to Macy's and I got so lucky with great deals there. I love this store, because it has so many options and I also can use my coupons on top of their discounts. It is hard to beat some of their prices.

    A top and jeans I am wearing today are from my recent purchase at Anthropologie. They had 40% off on sale items and, of course, I couldn't resist to buy a few beautiful pieces form there.

Big shopping day

      Today I decided that it is time to go shopping. I haven't been at the stores for so long and I realized how much I missed it. I know that on-line shopping is getting more and more popular and I have to admit that it saves a lot of time and energy, and it is very convenient.

      But I still have my moment when I want to go to my favorite stores and get inspired by their store designs. I love to touch fabrics of the items, and look closer at the mannequins, and how the designers put garments together.  The aromas of candles and potpourri make this pastime even better, especially when seasons change.

      Then I choose everything I like from the new collections (from earrings to shoes) and try everything on until I get tired. Yes, I can spend the whole day in the stores I like, and I never feel bad about it. Of course, I don't do it often, but some days I definitely need it.

     Today was one of those days when spent almost three hours at Anthropologie and I got so lucky with my new purchases. As you already know I am a big bargain person, I am all about good deals. And I got a few really ones which I will show you soon.
