Sequin skirt

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!

@kiseynaya's instants - 3

It has been a while since I last posted my Instagram stuff, but that's partialy because of my two-weeks' illness (and I didn't take much photos of my medicine, you know ;)

Anyway, below is the usual mix of my looks, landscapes, flowers, food and streetlife... Hope you enjoy and start following me!

Linen dress

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.

Family reunion

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!

Polka dot spin

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 ;)

Candy-floss skirt

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!

The Tall Ships Races 2013 in Riga

Cheers babes!
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 perfectly matching my new holdall.
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
