I thought that I would have the time for everything my heart desires this summer, but the universe wished otherwise. I'm so caught up with my life right now, you can't even imagine. I now have a job (unexpectedly) five, sometimes six, days a week, I just enrolled at university and on top of it all, I'm rearranging my room. But it's all good.
P.S. As you know I'm all about white and black outfits, so this one was a no brainer for me.

Six relaxing days by the sea was the thing that I needed the most after exams. No Internet, no phones, just wind and silence. And little photoshoot (later on blog).
Late night hunts for Lilies of the Valley.
And this little kitty that came just before I left. I have planned out a whole outfit in my head for this little cuteness, but that one requires a DIY, so stay tuned.
“I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it's true I'm here, and I'm just as strange as you.”
― Frida Kahlo
Of course there are times where I think I'm strange or even weird. That is not only because I have this blog (blogs are not so common where I live like in America, but they are becoming quite popular), but it is also because I listen to different music, watch different movies, take photos at weird places and overall I just think differently. I'm definitely not upset by that, because all of that makes me a person which I am right now.
So cheers to being yourself with all our weirdness we have!

It's pouring outside, but that's fine by me as I have exam in math tomorrow. I know I'm going to do well, but still it's an exam. So good luck to me! (:
Wore this to my last ring. It is an tradition that we have in Latvia - we celebrate our last ring in highschool ever before we have our exams. I can gladly say that I sew this skirt myself, one night before the occasion! As skirt is seetrough I wore leggings underneath and my trusty army like jacket. What's going on in you lives?

LV - Šis noteikti ir garākais raksts blogā. Un par to vainojama Venēcija! Krāsas arhitektūrā, tērpos un viņu garastāvoklī ar katru reizi paliek košākas. Venēcija ir tikpat skaista nakts laikā kā dienas laikā. Starpcitu, vakaros tūristu ir ļooti maz! Veļa, kas karājas no logiem, un tilti, kas gan Venēcija būtu bez tiltiem(!), veido brīnišķīgu koptēlu.
EN - This might be the longest post on my blog ever. And there is a perfect reason for that - Venice! I have already been there twice, but it never gets old. The colors in their architecture, clothing and mood stay the same. It is as beautiful in night as during the day. And the wash hanging down from their windows adds that special mood to the place. And, of course, bridges. Venice would be nothing without bridges. If you have the chance, go to Venice and stay for few days.

LV - Domāju, ka tie, kuri mani pazīst un lasa manu blogu, zin par manu lielo mīlestību pret melnu krāsu. Tāpēc šis jums nenāk kā liels pārsteigums. Man mugurā: vienkārša melna kleita, vintage jaka, kas patiesībā ir no manas mammas jaunības (paldies, ka paturēji, mammu!) un mani iemīļotie vedži, kurus man bail vilkt, jo tas būtu pārāk sāpīgi atvadīties no tiem!
EN - I think that those who know me well and read my blog for sure know about my addiction to black color and all black outfits. So this outfit shouldn't come as a surprise to you. I wore a simple black dress, vintage jacket that kept me warm (actually it is from my moms younger days, thank for keeping it, mom!) and my beloved Asos wedges that I'm afraid to wear, because they might get dirty, but I couldn't resist this time.

Long time no see! Sorry for the lack of updates. I have been very busy with school and traveling (oh yeah, I went skiing!). So now I have some free time for blogging. This time I'm gonna leave you with some great pictures, that were taken by my talented friend Anete. Thanks, girl! I'm wearing fur vest with some sheer blouse and accents of color. This is a new vest and already a favorite. Love it! In next few days I'm gonna post pictures from my skiing trip in Italy and carnival in Venice. Stay tuned!

I got the real winter feel in the past few days. The temperature was between -20°C and -30°C. Think REALLY COLD! But now it's warmer by few degrees (don't get fooled, I wore few layers!), so I used the opportunity and hoped out to take some photos despite the fact that there were no one to take photos of me. Tripod and remote control is a savior in situations like that!

LV - Ja teiktu, ka dievinu šos svārkus, tas neaprakstītu manas patiesās sajūtas. Liekas, ka tāds vārds, kas aprakstītu manas izjūtas nemaz vēl nav bijis izteikts. Vieglajam svārku audumam pieskaņoju tamborētu džemperi, kas atradās manas mammas skapī jau no 90.tajiem. Liekas jocīgi, ka šī bija pirmā reize, kad tas redzēja dienas gaismu
EN - So here goes the promised look with the red dot skirt. It would be an understatement, if I said that I am in love with this skirt. Word 'love' just isn't cutting it. For this time I paired the skirt with chunky vintage sweater that was made for my mom in 90's, but never saw the daylight. I'm planning on wearing this skirt with a shirt that I grabbed in men's department. So stay tuned. And thanks for the support. :)

LV - Tikko atnākusī ziema tā tik vien prasa adījumus un tamborējumus. Tāpēc no skapja tika izvilkts tirkīzzilais džemperītis, kam tika pieskaņots mans uzticamais šifona krekls, kas jau vairāk kā pāris reizes ir parādījies blogā (šeit un šeit). Protams, arī vedži, pulkstenis un mētelis, lai nenosaltu!
EN - As you saw in previous post - the winter is finally here! So it just calls for knits and crochets.

Movie day with friend. We watched 'Girl with the dragon tattoo'. I highly recommend it! / Kino diena kopā ar 'Meitene ar pūķa tetovējumu', iesaku!
First snowman of the season with brothers help. :) / Pirmie sezonas sniegaveči ar brāļa palīdzību. :)
THE magazine. Everything that is worth knowing you will find there. / THE žurnāls. Nopērc un izlasi, tur ir viss, kas tev jāzina.

LV - Kad nevari atrast, ko vēlies, uztaisi pats. Lūk tā ir šujmašīnas burvība. Protams, ne manas šujmašīnas. Kačociņu sakomplektēju ar fliteru džemperi - manu uzticamo draugu.
EN - When you can't find a perfect match, make it! It is the truth beauty of a sewing machine. Someone else's sewing machine. Wore the fur with an old sequin jumper - my trusty friend of all times.

LV - Brīvdienas ir domātas, lai atpūstos. Tikai un vienīgi atpūstos, protams, ar nedaudz modes. Tā kā šis ir mams pēdējais vidusskolas gads, ar skolu saistītas lietas aizņem lielāko daļu mana laika. Un ir pārāk daudz iespēju, lai saprastu, ko darīt pēc skolas, bet nekad nenāk par ļaunu pasapņot, vai ne? Tāpēc centies no dzīves dabūt pēc iespējas vairāk!
EN - Holidays are all about relaxing. Relaxing with style we could say. Since it is the last year of high school for me, school related stuff is taking the most of my time. All the choices and opportunities of what to do after school are too overwhelming, but it is never bad to daydream about the future, right? So try to squeeze the most out of opportunities given.

LV - Neesmu vilkusi šo kleitu kopš vasaras. Bet pāris nedēļas atpakaļ, kad satikos ar draudzeni, lai aprunātos un iedzertu tasi kafijas, šī kleita vairs nevarēja nociesties mana skapja aizmugurē. Tā nu, pateicoties siltajam laikam un mammas dāvinātajam siltajam mētelim, kleita ieraudzīja dienas gaismu.
EN - Have not worn this dress since summer. But few weeks ago when I met up with my friend for a talk and a coffee, I decided that the time has come. This dress could not sit in back of my closet for any longer. Of course,it all happened thanks to the warm wetter and the mom's gifted coat.
