A style guide for those who work in non-fashionable sphere. Based on personal experience.

Every day of summer brings us new kind of weather. Sometimes it is more like autumn with heavy showers and cold gusty winds. Then all of a sudden it is hot and sunny. Nevertheless I try to wear different outfits and play with the styling. When I was moving here I had a limited number of luggage I could take with me. This lead to the fact that less than a half of my huge wardrobe made it to Riga. I had to learn how to wear a striped dress in two ways and keep myself from the temptation of buying a new one.

Каждый новый день лета не похож на предыдущий. Иногда кажется, что наступила осень с порывистыми ветрами и холодными ливнями. А на следующее утро город слепит солнцем и на улице непривычно жарко. Я стараюсь выглядеть по-разному и экспериментировать с образами. Когда мы перебирались в Ригу, у меня было ограниченное количество багажа. Так, со мной переехало меньше половины вещей из моего обширного гардероба. Мне пришлось учиться придумывать разные способы как носить одно и то же платье. И сдерживаться от порывов купить что-то новенькое.

The striped dress is very easy to style as it can be both sporty and romantic at the same time. It’s the accessories that make the look. The first outfit I have created was more of sport-chic way. I added a classic white t-shirt that can be found in any wardrobe really, a colourful backpack, a bandana worn as a choker and a pair of sneakers.

Летнее платье в полоску может быть основой как для спортивного, так и для романтического образа. Все дело в аксессуарах. Первый наряд был в спортивном стиле. Я добавила классическую белую футболку, которая найдется в недрах гардероба любого, разноцветный рюкзак, бандану, повязанную на шее и кеды

The second look was romantic, with a straw hat, espadrilles, delicate pedant and straw bag. It reminds me of Becky Thatcher in some way.

Второй образ был более романтичным с шляпкой канотье, эспадрильями, соломенной сумочкой и изящным кулончиком.
