Plaid, Black, and Tattooed at the Forest Clean-up

Unlike the previous forest clean-up photos from 2015, this set features two elements that have not been seen at Caspian forest clean-ups previously- one being a baby (strangely under-dressed, compared to his mom’s cool plaid manteau and red zigzag-printed scarf showing off glossy chestnut hair)….


..and the other being a henna tattoo, which adds an edgy feel to this otherwise conventional student outfit!



Beach Selfies and a Water Gun

These beach photos come from a Persian Gulf resort (not Kish Island)…and prove that the styles from those resorts are just as fashionable as those from the Caspian ones. The style below involves jeans, a blue manteau, a beige scarf, and….a little water gun….great for a selfie!


Another beach selfie involves a cool navy blue manteau with white lace edging and bows on the sleeves, worn with a black scarf and leggings. I think the leggings are perfect at the beach and for summer, in general…this summer, I have been trying to wear leggings outside of work as much as possible.


Black and Blue Color-block Coat at Roudkhan Castle

Roudkhan Castle is a classic medieval castle in the Caspian forests…and I cannot remember if I have already posted photos from the trail that hugs the mountain on which the castle is located. In any case, here’s a beautiful blue manteau with sky-blue color blocks, worn on the trail leading to the castle with a matching scarf showing off glossy auburn hair.


Watercolor Print Manteau Selfie

Against a background of a stylish palace and a reflecting pool (sorry, I am not sure what city this one is in), a couple takes a selfie…the man has a cool agate stone ring, by the way. As for the woman, she is wearing a unique watercolor-print tunic with elbow-length sleeves over an olive green long-sleeved top (and an olive green scarf)…excellent color combination!


Horseback Riding in Resorts

I am not sure what resort this photo is from (not a Caspian beach one)…but strangely enough, both outfits involve black coats and bright scarves…such as this coral one…


…or the purple one below. This outfit is definitely from a Caspian beach resort. You can also spot a green puffy jacket over a black coat, which means this was back in early spring….now, such jackets will not be necessary!


Three Manteaus in a Caspian Forest

This adorable selfie features three beautiful outfits in a gorgeous Caspian resort forest – these places are a bit wild and overgrown, almost jungle-like sometimes, yet never too far from civilization. My favorite is the red and white patterned coat on the right (worn with black shoes with cut-out sides, which seem to be very popular this year). The black shoes with white soles, worn by the girl in the middle, are also quite popular. On the left, the coat is not fully visible…but who cares, when you can see a gorgeous fringy scarf in all its glory and..yes, you guessed it right….Timberland-style boots, a perfect union of hip-hop and manteau styles! This is only the second time I am seeing this style of boots worn with manteaus, and the first time was this year too…..I’d like to see whether this trend will stick around.
