For the first time on The Wardrobe's Not Enough blog!

|Among the other bargains I grabbed recently on my "hunting tour", there was this all over sequinned skirt from H&M.|
The only remaining piece turned out to be a bit big for my hips, but I just couldn't put it back minding the 10 Eur tag...
And while my strict judges (t.i. mom and BF) aren't much fond of it, I myself am proud of my find!

|I found this dress on a sale rack in Seppala the other week.|
I could have bought it without trying, as one glance was totally enough to appreciate this modest gem.
Linen/viscose blend in a neutral pale pink shade, classy silhuette in the office-appropriate length with a flattering neckline - all of this for just 15 Euro!
My mom didn't like it's simplicity saying such a robe is only worth wearing to the garden works (apparently she shares the same blue blood as my grandma, you know... ;)
While I see a "value for money" here: a basic piece, which can easily be accesorized with a scarf or a necklace for either work or leisure.

|Last week my little brother was in town!|
I hadn't seen him for a year, and I was glad to move to my parents' house for a while to spend some time with the reunited family.
Although we didn't have much of activities and spent most of the time just hanging around the house, it was very nice to be so close again!
|Another hello! from a sweet ladylike me! :)|
I was pretty sick these past two weeks, yet one evening I felt like I could stay home no more...
I wanted to picture this outfit in a bright sunlight, emphasizing its' summertime romance, but (naturally) by the time we managed to get ready, the sun was long gone ;)
|Kiseynaya proudly presents: the pink skirt from my mother's youth!|
Back in spring browsing through Versace's collection in yellow and pink shades, I suddenly remembered of this skirt, which had been hiding in mom's wardrobe!
She didn't want me to take it away, because in her opinion this was just a shabby skirt I'd rather avoid.
But sometimes it is better not to listen to your mom when it comes to clothing ;)
The skirt was in great condition and only the old fashioned zip could betray its true age.
Besides the cool baby pink shade it is also of a trendy below-the-knee length!
I had no post in a week and oh how I wish that was because of some exotic vacation with no internet, not because of that nasty summer flu... Doh!
Ironically enough, the fact I have a legal excuse to stay home and "do nothing" in practice means less free time compared to my usual daily routine! Taking care of yourself, your sweetheart and your home plus answering all the lovely queries about your health ain't no joke when your powers being low! And then the doctors also remind you have to rest more...
Anyways, here is a brief report from the Tall Ships Races event, which the city of Riga hosted over the last weekend.
|As you can see, on my way to the port I ran into this Fantomas' Citroen |
Still wondering whether Fantomas himself had been in McDonalds round the corner meanwhile...hmm... ;)
In honor of Friday I kept my outfit casual, throwing on my new knitwear over beloved jeans.
|What a majestic view!|
|On the artisan market I tried on this funny hat...available in lots of different color combinations ;)|
|The place was extremely crowded!|
|Later on we sneaked onto the deck of frigate "Shtandart", as some friend of my BF was sailing on that ship!|
|The frigate is the (pretty old) copy of the same named ship of tsar Peter The Great|

|We're heaving such a windy rainy weather lately, that it is absolutely wonderful to recap hot & sunny "girls' day out" Sunday a week ago, when we headed over to a lavender fest. This sweet field in the middle of Latvian countryside did give us a Provance feeling for a moment. The whole place was nicely polished and there was various home-made lavender stuff for sale. We got to try lavender lemonade and lavender biscuits! :)|
Plenty of photos and the story behind my outfit below ;)
|Finally! I was wanting to photoshoot this dress since May probably!|
And as soon as I had these studded shoes delivered I knew I would wear them along!
But it wasn't until last Tuesday when we finally had a chance to take this outfit out.
Much more pictures and text as follows!
|Picture from KAYTURE.COM|
|Pretty book-alike clutch in floral print with a tassel.|
Looks exactly as in the pic.
Not very practical, but I think I am rather keeoing it :)
|Leather & printed canvas bag from Asos Black collection.|
Supposed to be carried around in a folded mode.
Interesting design, but totally not handy if you are using your bag for its actual purpose :)
|Thin, synthetic and loosy... Not my cup of tea.|
The print is exactly as pictured.
|Very interesting mixture of shiny pastel tone & sporty bomber.|
Looks pretty chic and great for summer!
I originally intended to wear it with a retro midi skirt below, but then realized bombers just don't suit me...
It also tends to make a make a "bubble" below the breasts...
|I love this retro polka dote midi!|
The only thing that upset me - this skirt consists of four pieces and the seam in the middle is way too visible...
Apart from that the spots are lovely!
They are in fact transparent and create a flirty vibe when on the go, as the fabric is very lightweight.
Though it also requires a proper ironing, I am sure it is a keeper and will be featured on my blog soon!
|Stylish colour block design, but I am wondering what shape of a body should one have in order to wear it...|
According to my resumee, you have to be very tall, square-bodied and breastless, as otherwise the blue line is getting distorted...
|Probably more appropriate for a small face, these sunnies didn't fit me.|
And despite the "cat eye" shape, these actually look quite childish...
|The body of this seductive playsuit is more yellowish in the real life, which I don't like.|
As well as the fact that it has a button up back... which is undeniably sexy, but meaning you'll never be able to put it on your own...
|The front is very cool, but the back is long and baggy.|
If unfitted shirts are your style, go for it!
But still make sure to pick a smaller size than usually.
|I liked the assymetry of this top and the white trimming.|
It is not that sky blue in reality; it is more blue&green.
Comes bigger than expected, so had to order a smaller size.
|Yeah! These sunnies are sooo like the ones my granny has! :)|
Although these don't look expensive (just because they're not!), these are definetely glamorous!
I am actually thinking of having this model in both white and black.
|I fell for this shirt once I saw it on WhoWhatWear.|
It is cool, but I am still not sure if it is not too "western"...
|I belive I will surprize nobody by saying florals are a must this summer... just like any other summer in fact! :)|
Until recently the blooming print in my wardrobe was only represented by the sunderesses, but this season the main floral piece is this light blue pencil skirt.
The reason behind: it's a perfect officewear!
I matched it with a pale yellow tank top, which was lying on the shelf for years and a light blue denim jacket, which is brand new, though it looks pretty worn out! ;)
I didn't quite like the idea of wearing blue outfit with black shoes+bag, but I didn't have much choice to be honest... however at the end I quite liked the overall result!
I accomplised the look with a black leather strap bracelet, the rose enameled watch, gold&turquoise necklace and a yellow hair clip.
