This is my second asymmetrical hem dress. The first one, with citruses and flowers all over it, I bought myself. And this navy blue one was given to me by my daughter. I used to wear it with a statement necklace and high heel shoes, the look being rather smart. But to tell you the truth I think that the dress worn on its own emphasises my hour-glass figure a bit too much.
Many people celebrated Easter last Sunday. But in my native Belarus (as well as in some other countries of Orthodox Christianity) Easter is celebrated tomorrow (Sunday). I am going to the Russian culture centre for some socializing to mark the day. And that's what I am planning to wear for the event, I took the photos in advance as tomorrow I will really have no time for this. Both things, the lacy top and the floral skirt, are new, I will be wearing them for the first time. I love the shape of the skirt, actually it is the first skirt of such shape in my wardrobe.
Here it is again, my all year favourite navy blue maxi skirt. You have seen it quite often here on the blog during last year. I wore it paired with different tops accesorized with different jewelry, bags and shoes. And what about today? I'm wearing it with a dress! This dress is a bit too short for me to wear it on its own here in Nepal. Of course, I can always wear it over skinnies but it seems a rather trivial and predictable variant. I wanted something more interesting. Then I noticed that the base colour of the dress and the colour of my favourite maxi skirt matches absolutely. So, I decided to give this combination a try. And I liked the result.
Recently you have seen me wearing these orange skinnies with a contrasting colour printed blouse (here). And today I paired the same pants with an Indian tunic from Biba. Those of you who've been reading my blog for some time know that I like to wear ethnic pieces too, sometimes it can be a complete look, and sometimes it can be just one ethnic garment mixed with western clothes.
It has been raining for the whole week, with occasional thunder and hailstones. Yesterday was the first fully sunny day and finally I could take a few photos. We went out for lunch and my look was rather simple and casual: a white cotton top over baroque print cropped pants. The pants are a recent purchase as well as the sandals. The purse was gifted to me some time ago but it was the first time that I actually used it.
