Hello Darlings, I’ve been having a wonderful time exploring the city where I was born: Lviv, Ukraine. I am taking the time to wander the streets, with the help of my trusty guidebook. Catching up with the childhood friends and spending time with my family.

In the following few posts, I will include photos of a breathtaking Medieval Castle where I have a guided tour scheduled; as well as the Art, Bell, Book, and Icon Galleries; churches; and much more.

(Volyn’ State University with the Monument of one of the greatest Ukrainian poets, T. Schevchenko.)

I was expecting the weather to be much warmer and brought mostly sandals and flats. Thankfully, I did bring these Michael Kors boots – they have served me well. I really love that most of the women here wear heels daily. It still amazes me how different North American and European style is 🙂

I really hope the weather gets warmer, to be able to finally shed my leather jacket and abandon my cashmere scarf. Despite the fact that these are some of my favorite pieces, I can’t wait to resume wearing summer clothes!

{ I AM WEARING: Abercrombie & Fitch Sweater // Armani Exchange Pants // Mackage Leather Jacket // Club Monaco Cashmere Scarf // Michael Kors booties}

As for the outfit, well I brought most of my closet favorites and have been having fun mixing and matching. Simplicity is the key for me, as many of you already know!

With Love…

    mm. love the kors booties and the leather jacket. i love cooler weather because you can wear more clothes! you can have fun with layering, scarves and hats! love that.
    i’ve always wished to live somewhere where women all wore super high heels and looked put together all day no matter what they may doing..i’d like to be that women one day, as you are, even if i dont live in a fashionable place. hehe south new jersey is just full of shirts that are too small, flip flops and sweat suits. (not necessarily all at once he he) but i suppose theres no point in wearing heels to just go sit over a friends place but..one day.

    i love all your beautiful photos and as a new follower of your blog you will soon be hearing more from me 🙂

    p.s. the ukraine looks absolutely incredible! i’d love to visit; crazy fabulous and original architecture!
