Hello, everybody! I can’t believe that more than half of October has passed already. Sometimes it’s easy to lose track of time, but this Sunday really helped with sensing that winter is coming. First snow hit St. Petersburg right in the middle of me preparing for an outfit shoot. But since I’m working right now and I have so much on my plate, rescheduling was really not an option, I’ve missed enough precious blogging time already, and I really wanted to try on some new looks. I am so glad I did that since I can’t imagine the weather becoming better from this point on. So, I’ve used all the light coverage outfits I could come up with and what’s going to come after is some heavy artillery aka winter clothing.
I also began seriously considering my blogger future and the things I need to do for university (meaning term papers, psychological research and all these fun but time-consuming things), but the most important decision of the weekend probably was to buy this really awesome clothes rack from Ikea. It was on discount and I snatched it up yesterday just in time. All these motivational posters and books always say that change starts with you, and the biggest change in my life would be de-cluttering my own room. If I can arrange such a small space as this, I can feel confident enough to tackle more important tasks, and also have some order for once.
I’ll be glad to post how that corner of my room looks once I actually get the work done: it might take a whole weekend to clear out the mess I made here. On to more important things, I met with my blogger gal Asya this Sunday for some outfit shooting and realised how much I miss photographing and thought I want to show more of what I love doing so much on the blog. So, keeping in mind all my extracurricular activities, I have to say that I have 2 shoots coming up that I’d be honored to share on the blog with all of you dear readers. And if you happen to be travelling to St. Petersburg, Russia you know who’s always ready to shoot some cool pictures! :)
And now, here’s the main course: a look I combined mostly using clothing from a russian mass-market brand called Befree. Once I saw that thick black skirt I knew I had to find a denim shirt to pair it with and added some red boots on top of that (such a cool color)! Maybe it’s a bit worn-out combo but I honestly can’t remember the last time I actually wore a denim shirt, so I consider this a cool change. Also, this day was the last day I wear leather jackets this year. I shot a couple of outfits in my favorite jackets, and you’ll ahve to wait for a while to see the other one… but, no. It’s officially too cold to even attempt anything of the sort. Even so, in this mini-collaboration with Befree I borrowed some stuff for the shoot and I think it turned out quite okay. So why not share? Click below to see more pictures. :)
