It’s almost July, and we’re yet to experience real summer here in Moscow. The spirits are dwindling. But do you know what the much-awaited heat won’t allow? Style. When it’s scorching outside, you can’t just put a light pink coat over a two-layer silk top (that’s actually a dress tucked into the jeans, which is a whole another issue), and wear your hair down. The heat also won’t allow neck scarves, jeans, makeup, cuddling, hot coffee, jogging or normal breathing. And don’t even get me started on all the exposed skin on a tightly packed subway train, I shudder at the thought of this grotesque experience.
This weather we’re having right now, on the other hand, is the elusive it-girl weather. The kind where you can still wear fabulous outerwear, but also get away with bare legs and open shoes. The kind Rihanna seems to perpetually have around her. Must be in her rider. And if you think I’m not going to enjoy Rihanna weather while it lasts, you are sorely mistaken.
I’ll go now, my ankle boots, scarves, cappuccino and cuddles are still waiting. Bless this springy summer.
What’s the weather like where you are?

Note the reflection of Nati, my beautiful photographer for the day making that extra effort for the shot, lol.
