LUNA earrings

It's been awhile since I made jewelry. But these beautiful hemimorphite briolettes were too perfect for spending their days in the darkness of my gem supply box. Simple design, clean modern lines. Though the color play withing the gems looks more like carribean seashore, they remind me of moonshine. LUNA stands for "moon" in Russian. Available now in whyzee shop.

LookBook: Summer Wardrobe Essentials

There was a time when I wouldn't wear a skirt or a dress for anything in the world - I was a tomboy growing up. It took me years to realize that skirts and dresses are much more comfortable and convenient compared to shorts and pants: no stretched out knees, no panty lines - unless it's a skin tight cocoon, ample "ventilation" on hot summer days :-) Besides, you don't really have to think much in putting an outfit together if part of it if a dress.

Needless to say sundresses are my summer wardrobe staple!

I wanted to share a look, made up from my summer essentials.

1. a dress
You really don't have to break the bank in getting a cute summer dress.
My to-go brands: H&M, Zara, Forever21, Madewell

2. a pair of earrings
I don't wear any other jewelry pieces during summer.
My to-go brands: All Good Jewelry (Boston) and, of course, Whyzee on Etsy

3. a pair of sandals
Preferably flat, made from thick and sturdy saddle leather in rust or cognac color (+ an extra pair of colored ones)
My to-go brand: J.Crew

4. a canvas tote
With stripes! No leather bags for summer for me!
My to-go brand: Gap

That's it!

What are your summer wardrobe staples?

DIY: Sock Bun

Everyone at work is obsessed with putting their hair up now that the temps are at their highest. The most popular style is a sock bun. I'm a little bit over it by now as I see so many every day, but every now and then it's a really cute thing to pull of.

Here is an awesome DIY video by Rebecca Kelsey of how you make a sock bun:

Enjoy the week!

Week in Pictures

I Know, I know! My closets are ripping at the seams,
but how do you resist a summer sale at H&M ,
Zara or anywhere else for that matter?

Photo: Trips Through Germany

Schwetzingen, Baden-W├╝rttemberg, Germany
Before I came to US, I was very lucky to spend two years in Germany. I had lots of time on my hands on the week ends so my friend and I dedicated them to local travel. Because the public transport system was very convenient, we were able to see quite a bit. I will be sharing the pictures I took from those mini vacations from time to time. Here is another photo from the same trip I posted earlier.
I posted this particular picture, because Garance Dore inspired me by sharing this one
Happy Sunday everyone!
