My new schedule

        Last Thursday, I had my first day at a job, which was one of the reasons why I started this blog in the first place. I needed a portfolio to be able to work in fashion. Throughout my entire blogging career, I have represented Anthropologie multiple times, and now I am a part of their team. I decided to take baby steps and try from the very beginning to see if my dream to work in fashion is the right fit for me.

      Of course, I kept my other full-time job and decided to start with 15 hours per week as a Sales Associate at Anthropologie. If I want to change my career, I think I should understand everything from the bottom up. I am very excited about it but at the same time I don't know what will happen to my blog. Between mine and Evgeny's crazy busy schedules it will be difficult to find time to shoot photographs for the blog and keep posting twice a week.

     At first, I wanted to close my blog completely, but now I am thinking I will try to post once a week because it became a big part of my fashion journey. Also, I truly appreciate our fashion blog community and I really enjoy reading blog posts from many of you.

      That is why I am not saying "Goodbye" yet. I will try to do my best to keep my blog alive, maybe not always on time, but with big pleasure.

      Today, while the leaves on the trees are still green and it is still warm in Philadelphia, I would like to show one of my favorite pants again, before fall is here. It was a perfect outfit for a warm, comfortable, not anymore hot day in our beautiful city.

Wearing white after Labor Day

      Do you follow the rule about not wearing white after Labor Day? It looks like I don't, especially when there are still warm summer days outside. That's why for Friday night I chose this white top which I bought last summer, but for some reason haven't worn it even once. I completely forgot that I owned it, which means that I need to clean my closet so badly. How could I not remember about this cute top the whole summer?

      Well, I will definitely start working on my wardrobe soon, but yesterday I got a chance  to show this top on the streets of Philadelphia for a night out. Have a good weekend my friends!

September in the Old City

     Happy September, everyone! I am still in a mood to not buy any summer garments, that's why today I am wearing the items you have seen on me before, but in a different combination. This white t-shirt definitelly has become one of my favorite items, I pretty much live in it. It goes well with skirts, trousers, and, of course, with a pair jeans. I am quite impressed with the quality of this item  because it still looks pretty good even after being washed weekly. I like when my clothes stay  in a good shape for a long time.

      Today after work we went to the Old City, one of the most beautiful areas of Philadelphia and one of my favorite ones. It is still doesn't feel like September with 94 degrees outside, but something is telling me that fall in not so far away and soon enough we will all be covered with sweaters and coats. But not yet...

     That's why let's enjoy our last days of summer!

Navy color at Navy Yard

      It looks like after my preferred colors of black and white, my third favorite color is navy. It is my third post in row in which I am wearing navy blue. Summer is definitelly coming to the end, but it is still pretty hot in our region. That's why I continue to post summer outfits.

     This skirt is one of the oldest item in my wardrobe. Originally, we bought it for my daughter and later she gave it to me. Every year I try to get rid of this skirt, but in the end, I always decide to  keep it for one more year. This is just too comfortable! But now I am on a cleaning mood and will see what happens...

     Do you have any items in your closet which you can't get rid of?

Our Anniversary

      I know that jumpsuits have been very popular this summer and I really wanted to buy one, but every time I tried them on there was something I didn't like. Finally, I decided that I didn't need one anymore. The summer season has almost passed and no one knows what the next one will bring. Will jumpsuits still be relevant?

     Today Evgeny and I were going to Philadelphia to celebrate our 12-year marriage anniversary and I was planning to wear a monochrome black outfit which I had tried on a couple of days ago. I liked it, but right before I was going to put it on I decided to explore the "evening section" of my closet and, to my big surprise, I detected a jumpsuit. What a surprise!

     It turns out that I have a trendy item in my closet which I didn't even remember about. Of course, I changed my mind right away and decided to wear this forgotten piece of my wardrobe. Sometimes it is good to forget what I own and rejoice again after finding it.

     Of course, it was a wonderful night!

Evening stroll in the city

     I don't wear this dress very often because it is hard to choose the right weather for it. Despite the fact that it has open shoulders it is still not a light garment. And when the temperature goes above 90 degrees outside I feel hot just looking at it.  Even though this dress is made from 100% linen it is still pretty heavy for hot days, plus its dark blue color makes it feel even heavier.

      But today, we finally got some relief form heat and high humidity, that's way my choice fell on this dress. We went to Philadelphia after work for a short stroll and I was happy with my decision about this dress. There have not been not so many days in the summer time when I could wear it with pleasure, but today was one of them!

New trend from my past

      It looks like belts are having a big come back in trend this fall. I used to wear all different kinds of belts. They played a big role in my outfits - fabric, leather, suede; wide, narrow and even scarfs. In my 20s and 30s I couldn't finish any look without a belt. And now, I am pretty excited about this trend.

      Today I went to my closet and found a box full of my belts which I had saved from my past. I went through all of them and decided to wear one of them right away. The belt I am wearing today I bought right after I came to the US which means 12 years ago. It was a little loose on me, but I decided to buy it anyway thinking that one day it would fit me well. And this day has come.

      This top I bought much later and, surprisingly, it matched very well with the belt. Orange has never been my favorite color, but I have noticed that I have many items of that color in my closet.

      And, in the end, I just want to say that I live in those culottes this summer - airy, snug and very comfy!
