Outfit Idea: How to Style striped blazer with a belt

12:03 AM
Hi, my dear readers~ Thank you for keeping visiting my website. I am so sorry that I have been sharing less fun outfit ideas. Living in other countries has truly have changed my style. If you noticed, I have been wearing more classy and elegant looks. It is not so bad, but I feel like I haven't been bringing anything new, fun or fresh. Don't you agree? Maybe, it's because I don't feel inspired enough or nothing new in the fashion world has captivated me lately.
Anyway, I kept seeing more blogger babies wearing a blazer with a belt over it this fall season and thought to recreate a similar look. To be honest, it wasn't easy, because not all blazers look good with a belt over it or not every belt can look good. My advice is to style the blazer with a statement belt that will compliment your entire outfit. So, I wore my Asos striped blazer along with Zara mom's jeans, Public Desire green boots and a vintage belt.  To complete my look, I picked my Traffic People bag. Have you styled a belt over a blazer this season?

Outfit Idea: How to wear fall's wine colors in winter

Hi, guys! I can't believe how fast the time flew. It is almost the end of the year. Ugh, and I feel like I didn't accomplish as much as I was planning. Don't you feel the same? I don't even want to look at my plan that I wrote in the beginning of 2017. Let's talk about it more later.

Anyway, I am so lucky to live in places where I don't need to layer my outfits and look like a big cabbage salad in my coat. Yes, I do freeze very easily and my husband still makes fun of me since I was born in Siberia. Who would have thought that this skinny girl could be used to playing in -40C outside and not even thinking that it can be dangerous for your health? After leaving North Kazakhstan and living in warmer places, my body now starts to freeze as soon as the temperature drops to 10C. Let's hope that I will not need to live back in North of Kazakhstan again.

Anyway, my mom and I decided to create something for my readers and give you some inspiration for what to wear this winter season. We went to Lisi Lake to shoot my outfit. It was actually a wonderful place for this winterish look. Wine red or burgundy is my favorite color when it comes to colder months. In a warmer time of the year, I prefer brighter colors. Fall/Winter everything is opposite though. Wine red color is very elegant, warm and playful. You can create a ton of different looks and stay stylish even in the cold. I decided to wear my Pull & Bear sweater along with a Storets dress and Public Desire boots that matched perfectly with my sweater. As for accessories, I picked a Lord & Taylor mini bag and brown sunglasses from Asos. 

Would you wear fall's wine colors for winter?

Greetings to December! To be honest, I never look forward to December, because it means that my awesome year is about to finish or it's time to wear warmer clothes. When I was younger, I used to love December because it meant that we are about to have holidays and school break. It was also time to prepare your house to celebrate New Year. Since I've grown and moved out from my parents' house, I stopped caring so much about New Year. Maybe it's because being in the USA and Europe, people place more emphasis on Christmas as a family holiday. Unfortunately, my husband and I happen to live far away from our families. We probably have the lamest Christmas ever. LOL. Just a few gifts exchanged, usually breakfast together, and a fake little Christmas tree. Luckily, last year, we were able to celebrate Christmas with his family in Seattle. Not sure how we are going to do this year, because my husband is working on New Year's Eve. I am not complaining at the moment, but I am kind of worrying about how we are going to do it when we will have kids ;) However, to create a festive vibe on my blog, I decided to wear a monchrome blue outfit. I am so sorry if it looks more like fall. It's only because I did a photoshoot with my mom back in November to prepare this post for December ;). If you are still looking for cool sweaters, just look down at my post. I linked up some sweaters for you! Let me know how you are going to celebrate Christmas!

What to see in Scotland in 7 days (II)

10:39 AM
Hi, guys! I am back to writing my second part about our trip to Scotland. I hope you truly enjoyed reading what we did during our first three days in Scotland. If you didn't have a chance to read, please follow up this link >>> here.

Day 4:

On day 4, we decided to shoot my outfits for the blog, just because it is so pretty in Tobermory. It was a very quiet morning, and we enjoyed a quick breakfast at a local cafe before hitting the road again to get to the next spot. Our next vista was a Castle Stalker, located on the way to Glen Coe. Actually, this castle appeared on the comedy film 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail'. After trying to figure out how to get closer to the Castle, I would advise you to not stop at the Stalker Castle Cafe, unless you are super hungry. You can get a closer look from the highway en route to Glen Coe. Afterwards, we drove to the next castle that was on our list. Can you guess where we went? Of course, to Loch Ness Castle! To be clear, Urquhart Castle sits right on the bank of Loch Ness. We were worrying that we would not make it on time, or we wouldn't be able to see everything. As it turns out, you don't need to spend more than 1 hour there, unless you are planning to take a boat tour to find the Loch Ness monster ;).  For dinner, we drove to Inverness and stopped at the local restaurant "Johnny Foxes." After delicious dinner of haggis, venison, mussels, and local beer, we crashed in our charming AirBnB.

Day 5:

The next morning, we got up very early (again!). Our plan was to get as far as possible to the north. My original plan was to see Castle Keiss, but we end up seeing more. I was also super happy that throughout our entire trip, we had beautiful and sunny weather. We ended up visiting Dunrobin Castle, Castle Sinclair Girnigoe, and of course, Keiss Castle. Dunrobin Castle was unexpected and beautiful. It is surrounded by the forest and a beautiful garden. Sadly, we were not aloud to take pictures inside, but I hope you watched my insta stories when we visited the Castle. I am definitely recommending that you make time to visit this place. Beside the stunning architecture, art and furniture, you can enjoy yummy food (to include scrumptious pastries). As for ruins, I was hoping that we will see Castle Sinclair and Keiss in a spooky mood, but due to the very sunny weather, it made it more attractive than scary. After a long drive along the coast, we started our trip back to Edinburgh. We had to spend the night in Perth.

Day 6-7:

To be frank, we felt quite exhausted from the road, but we couldn't totally skip Perth. We stopped at the Scone Palace. In this palace, we were not aloud to take pictures again (so lame). However, if you are a big fan of history, definitely visit the crowning place of Scottish Kings. After few hours in Perth, we headed to the oldest working whiskey distillery in the country. We couldn't leave Scotland without buying Scottish whisky. We ended up at The Famous Grouse Distillery, where we learned how whisky is made. After that, we got to St. Andrews to see the famous golf course, cathedral and castle ruins. The cathedral was truly spectacular and fascinating. It is a truly awe inspiring place. After few powerful hours in St. Andrews, we drove back to Edinburgh, making sure to check out Circus Lane to finish off our sightseeing.
