"Not my style" trousers

     When I bought these trousers I was in doubt for a few weeks - should I keep them or return... They looked to me like lounge pants, something I usually wear at home or when grocery shopping. I tried them on a couple of times and was still debating with my husband about them being "Not my style", "Too casual", "More for young girls", but he liked them very much. 

      Then, on Sunday afternoon all of a sudden I decided to put them on and go to Philadelphia. I put my heels on which helped me create a look that's "My style", "Not too casual", "More for adult girl" and, honestly, I was very happy that I kept those pants. There are so many potential in them to create more interesting images. And probably I shouldn't say that these pants are "not my style" anymore. 

       We are women and we have that kind of power to make everything work for us if really want it!

Fall choices

      Before I moved to the US I had never paid too much attention to the colors I selected for each season. Of course, I wore darker colors for the fall and winter and lighter and brighter for the warm seasons but never further subdivided them by color preferences. And this is probably my first year when I really paid attention to this and updated my wardrobe with the fall colors.

      I actually started to feel desire to create my outfits based on colors around me and when I look at our photos after photoshoots taken by Evgeny, I like to see that my clothes fit so harmoniously into the landscapes around.

     Do you define your clothes by seasons' colors?

My new technique for wearing wrap scarves

      Even though I love wrap scarves so much, I have always had difficulties wearing them. I don't know why, it just never stays in the way I wrap it. I like how other ladies put them on and they look very stylish and comfortable, but in my case, they always unwrap very quickly and look messy on me. It is very frustrating...

      But I think I found the way to wear them in an appropriate and comfortable manner. All I need to do is just flip my wrap scarf in front of me on the opposite side and throw the end over my shoulder (I have never flipped it before). Is is a very simple technique, but it really works.

      I spent the whole evening wearing my scarf and it didn't bother me at all because, surprisingly, it stayed in one place I put it on the whole time I was wearing it.

It's time for my vest collection

      It is officially fall in the air with warm days and cool mornings and evenings. And for me it is also time to start wearing my vests. I have already said it before a few times in my previous posts about how much I love vests, and today I want to show how I started a season of vests.

      I bought this vest at Anthropologie last year and I really like how easy it matches with almost every item in my wardrobe and how many different ways it can be used. It is always a good addition for my office outfits as well as a good apart of easy, relaxed jean days like today...

New box of clothes from Olga

      On our way home from the JFK airport we stopped by at Olga's apartment in Brooklyn and spent some time all together. She had new boxes of clothes after cleaning up her closet waiting for me. Of course, we took them and before I gave them to my friend for a flea market sale I went through all the items. This time I didn't get many items from her box , but those jeans... As soon as I saw them I knew they were main. I loved them from the first sight.

      I tried them on and realized right away that the only adjustment I have to do is make them shorter, because my daughter is 4 inches taller than me. I measured the right length and 10 minutes later they were ready to be worn.

      They are from an Urban Outfitters store and I don't know why I have never checked their stores. I thought they were for younger people. But now, I will definitelly stop by this store because I like those jeans very much. They fit me well and they made with high quality.

      Thank you, Olga!

Light fall outfit

     It is so good to be back on track after a long vacation. We had a wonderful time in Russia, but it feels good to get my routine back. Yes, I am a routine person and I like to organized everything in my life.  And to tell you the truth I missed our shooting sessions with Evgeny, because during those we have a chance to spend our time together doing something we both are interested in.

     Today was a little windy and cool, but I still wanted to show an outfit I bought for Russia at my Anthropologie store. In my region it was still warm and sunny even though the fall season has already started, that's why I chose light shirt and pants, which would go well even for summer days..., but the deep yellow color reminded me that fall is right around the corner.

Getting ready...

      I am getting ready for my big trip to Russia. It is always exiting to go home and join my family and friends. And today we went to King of Prussia Mall for the final preparations, buying gifts and some things we will need there.

      I decided to wear something comfortable and the same time to take pictures for my last post before we leave. I know you have seen those pants many times on my blog already, but there  is nothing I can do about it..., they are just so comfortable, I couldn't resist.

      My entire outfit was created with the items I have had in my closet for years, but I still like them and still wear them with pleasure.

     See you in three weeks!
