I have to blink my eyes a couple of times to come to an understanding that in a week we are entering the first month of summer. It all unloads on me in one second. I see the flash backs of the warm spring evenings with friends, amazing trips I did in the past three months, fun festivals, breath-taking plays, music, flowers, bright colours, dresses, sparkling drinks...It comes in a flashy swirl through my mind to bring me to a sweet remorse about how quickly days pass by. It's almost time to say our goodbyes to the careless, tender, flighty and oh-so-beautiful spring.
PS. you can find me on Instagram @alexandravsamarina

Я зажмуриваю глаза крепко, почти до боли, широко открываю их, и только после первых полусекунд темноты вместе с ярким светом ко мне приходит понимание того, что уже через неделю наступит лето. Понимание данного необратимого факта обрушивается на меня разом, как лавина снега в горах, оставляя за собой грустно-сладкие воспоминания о весне. Перед глазами проносятся теплые вечера, проведенные в смехе с друзьями; незабываемые поездки, музыкальные фестивали, восхитительные спектакли, яркие краски, цветы и их сладкие ароматы, легкие платья, игристые вина - красочный водоворот событий и ощущений. Все же пришло время попрощаться с бесшабашной, нежной, взбалмошной и такой красивой весной.

* My Looks: White Again *


Life changes around you, so do you too. Every day I learn how to appreciate what I have. Sometimes it's a struggle, sometimes it comes as naturally as breathing. So in one of my appreciation moments I start thinking whether I need so much clothes and things around me. I do absolutely love having a spacious walk-in closet full of beautiful items. However I think it's time to surround myself with a fewer but quality pieces which will last till my granddaughter is 80 than many but one-season-items. This said I enjoy a new challenge of reinventing my wardrobe and creating new combinations with the same clothes. That's also a reason why I post two white shirt looks in a row;)
 And as for perks of shopping less, I got to invest all saved up money into new experiences: city tips, concerts, theaters, beach get-aways, spa, etc. Eventually it seems to be true that less is more:)

Blazer Club Monaco (similar HERE)

New In: Apple Earrings

It's way too long yet for the time in august when apple trees are covered in pretty round red apples. Yet I already start dreaming about this wonderful days. Apparently I'm not the only one who's inspired by the beauty of apple gardens. Designers of the Jak Joten atelier in Moscow have created an amazing silver and gold-plated jewellery collection based on the stunning images of endless apple gardens. Earrings, rings, necklaces, brooches and bracelets handcrafted from the finest materials bring us to the summer days filled with the sweet aroma of apples.
I couldn't resist a temptation as I never can resist a piece of an apple pie and I bough a
pair of gold-plated earrings embellished with the ruby shpinel.
 I, along with Jak Joten designers brought an old good saying "an apple per day keeps a doctor away" to a totally new level:)

Еще слишком далеко до неспешных дней в августе, когда яблочные деревья облачаются в круглые спелые яблочки. Все же мои мысли чаще и чаще уносятся в это замечательное время года. И, по-видимому, я не одна вдохновлена яблочными садами; дизайнеры московского ателье Jak Joten разработали и создали коллекцию ювелирных украшений из серебра и позолоты, основанную на красоте яблочных садов. Серьги, кольца, подвески, броши и браслеты из линии "Белый Налив" сделаны из лучших материалов исключительно вручную. Каждое изделие коллекции переносит нас в теплые летние дни, наполненные сладким ароматом яблок.
Я не могла устоять, так же как я не могу устоять перед кусочком яблочного пирога, и купила позолоченные серьги "Белый Налив", украшенные шпинелью цвета фуксии.
Я, последовав примеру дизайнеров ателье Jak Joten, внесла новый смысл в старую английскую поговорку "По я блоку на день, и доктор не надобен":)

My Looks: White Shirt

I'm touching my feminine side through masculine clothing or to be precise through a man's shirt. I followed the golden rule of Carolina Herrera and went for all time saver - crisp white collar shirt. However this time I opted for slightly oversized man's version combined with an ultra feminine full midi skirt. What do you think of the results?

Женственный образ через мужскую одежду, а точнее мужскую рубашку. Я последовала золотому правилу дизайнера Каролины Эррера и приобрела несколько классических белых рубашек с воротником. Только на этот раз я выбрала мужскую версию, которую я сочетала в данном образе с ультра женственной миди-юбкой. Что вы думаете о получившемся результате?

Inspiration: Met Ball

Beyonce Knowles in Givenchy Haute Couture

Met Ball is an event anticipated by the fashion crowd probably even more eagerly than the yearly Oscar. My favorites of this year could be titles "Fairy princesses and one dark queen". Nobody could over-shine Queen B in her dramatic crystal Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci gown with a deep V decollete.

The queen of the evening was surrounded by fairy princesses in all tints of blush from peach to beige, from goldish to silverish nude. My absolute favorites are gorgeous Suki Waterhouse in Burberry creation, stunning Jessica Alba in Diane von Furstenberg fashion masterpiece, picture-perfect Joan Smalls in a gown by the wedding dresses queen Vera Wang, dreamy Leighton Meester in Emilio Pucci crystal maxi, iconic Hollywood Blake Lively in peerless Gucci Premiere dress and risk-taker Solange Knowles in peachy creation by 3.1 Phillip Lim much inspired by the roaring twenties.

My Looks: Back to Madrid

I'm back to Madrid in my thought and on my blog. I'm happy to share those sunny days and bright memories of a beautiful city. As for my outfit I've opted for a comfortable attire to explore the capital of Spain. A light-weight jacket shielded me from an occasional cold wind or air conditional meanwhile a bright top added just a right amount of summer mood to the look. 

Я вернулась в Мадрид как в моих мыслях, так и в моём блоге. Рада поделиться всеми яркими воспоминаниями и солнечными днями, проведенными в прекрасном городе. Что же касается моего образа, я постаралась сочетать удобное со стильным. Легкий белый жакет защищал меня от редких ветров и более назойливых кондиционеров, в то время как цветной топ придал образу подходящее летнее настроение.
