mellow may

Ok. Hands down – April was a fantastic month besides it’s occasional shower rains. But May is the month with mellow summer warmth in mornings and breezy afternoons. So May beats every other month in terms of good quality weather. Sandals are welcome for the 1st time (for me at least) but also leather jackets are thrown in the backseat of our cars for “in case” situations. Any kind of outfit that won’t make you freeze or sweat is just super comfortable and easy. Like this cool white knitwear and embroided shorts paired with my favorite sandals of the summer brought fresh from NY / gifted by a tasteful lady. I wore this outfit yesterday when our friends came over and one of those friends is always a very delightful photographer 🙂

Kabul, Nisan zaman zaman parcali bulutlu, yer yer yagisli ama yine de harika bir aydi. Ama Mayis yumusak sabahlarin ve bahar ruzgarinin serinlettigi ogleden sonralarin ayi, yani aylarin prensesi. Sandaletler ilk defa giyilebilir (benim icin en azindan) ama deri ceketler de arabamizin arka koltuguna her ihtimale karsi atilir. Iliklerinize kadar usutmeyen, ama beyninizi yakmayan bir havadir Mayis havasi, dolayisiyla her kiyafet rahattir, kolaydir. Dun arkadaslarimiz geldiginde de hava aynen boyleydi, limonata kivami 🙂 ve ben bu mevsimlerin bas taci kumas olan merserize beyaz kazak ve beyaz sortumu bu yazin favori sandaletleriyle giydim. Sandaletler zevkli bir bayanin taze NY hediyesi ve fotograflar her zaman keyifli fotografci arkadasimin eserleri.

 

The sunnies are Ralph Lauren and Ahmet bought them from New York last month. We have been kind of fighting every morning to decide who will wear them. Ahmet wins most of the times. In the end, he is the huge one.

Gunes gozlukleri Ralph Lauren, Ahmet gecen ay New York’tan getirdi. O gunden beri sabahlari evimizde hep ayni kavga, bugun kim takacak gozlugu. Cogunlukla Ahmet kazandi. E iri yari cocuk tabi.

somewhere high

My dear readers who have not been to the most fascinating city in the world, this is what Istanbul looks like from somewhere high, like my best friends terrace that I have been falling in love with every time I visit. Ok the clouds and the spectecular sun were just pieces of good luck of that evening and of course my very talented photographer friend made them look even more beautiful. But come on, this is the best city ever… Best.

Istanbul’u henuz gormemis sevgili okuyucalarim, iste yuksek bir yerden guzel bir aksamustu sehrimiz boyle gozukuyor… Gerci bu yaziyi Turkce okuyup anlayip, hala Istanbul’u gormemis biri yoktur diye tahmin ediyorum. Tamam kabul, o gun bulutlar ve gunes ayri bir buyuleyiciydi ve yetenekli fotografci arkadasim onlari daha da guzel gostermeyi basardi. Ama yani, en muhtesem sehir burasi degil mi? Kesinlikle.

I was wearing shirt (gomlek) and pants (pantolon) from Zara (similar here & here) // shoes (ayakkabilar) by Jimmy Choo // earrings (kupe) from Mon Reve // Sunglasses (gunes gozlukleri) from Ray Ban.

best friends

Is there a better friendship in the fashion world than the one between leather pants, simple tees / shirts and red lipstick? I think no fashion rule or trend may break the relationship between these guys. I don’t have a single girlfriend who doesn’t pull of this look with flats for daily occasions and with gorgeous heels for night. Salute the easiness yet fanciness of this simple combination, otherwise I would have nothing to wear when I had to get ready in 10 minutes.

Su dunyada deri pantolon, basic t-shirt / gomlek ve kirmizi rujun dostlugundan daha saglam bir dostluk var mi? Bence hicbir moda kurali ya da trend bu 3lunun uzun ve guzel iliskisini bozamaz. Benim bu kombinasyonu gunduz duz ayakkabiyla, gece ise topuklu ayakkabilariyla siklastirmayan bir kiz arkadasim yok. Bu kolay ama her zaman sik duran kombinasyon iyi ki var, yoksa 10 dakikada hazirlanmam gereken yerlere giyecek birsey hicbir zaman bulamazdim.

holy poly

I was blinded when I made my routine visit to knightcat today. I mean, isn’t this by far the most beautiful woman that can be dreamed of? And what about those two dresses?

Bugun knightcat‘e rutin ziyaretimi yaptıgımda sanırım kor oldum. Bir kadın daha guzel olamaz. Yok olamaz. Elbiselerin guzelligi de ufak bir dipnotla belirtilmeli tabi.

neutral

Even glaring colors and patterns draw us into themselves while shopping, sometimes all our wardrobe need is neutral colors in simple shapes. Although they must be combined with a good pair of shoes for a little promotion.

Bazen alisveriste her ne kadar renkler ve desenler cazip gozukse de, aslinda dolabimizin tek ihtiyac duydugu sey notr tonlar ve basit kesimler. Kiyafetin azicik terfi etmesi icin guzel bir topuklu ayakkabi sart.

Skirt / Etek: Zara, Sweatshirt: Zara, Trenchcoat: Forever 21, Shoes / Ayakkabi: Prada, Clutch / Canta: Tory Burch (a birthday present from a friend who knows my taste extremely well) (zevkimi cok iyi bilen bir arkadasimin dogumgunu hediyesi)

bisous.

On this cloudy Mother’s Day here is a little outfit photo of a look that I am so into right now. Message t-shirts paired with shirts (open buttons is a must) and a casual jacket. Try red lips for a more dramatic look. Mac’s Ruby Woo is my favorite – a late discovery thanks to a very chic friend.

Bu bulutlu Anneler Gunu’nde kucuk bir kiyafet postu. Bu aralar oldukca takik oldugum ve devamli farkli versiyonlarini denedigim bir kombin: t-shirt, dugmeleri acik birakilmis bir gomlek ve salas bir ceket. Daha dramatik bir gorunum icin de kirmizi ruj. Mac Ruby Woo benim suanda favorim – her daim bakimli bir is arkadasim sayesinde yapilmis gec bir kesif.

We’ve had the biggest brunch today with family and now relaxing at home, trying adjust my mood to a long & tiring business trip that will begin tomorrow morning.

Anneler gunu icin hepberaber brunch a gittik. Su anda da evde yarin sabah gidecegim uzun ve yorucu is seyehatine modumu ayarlamakla mesgulum.

Bisous T-shirt: Topshop, Jacket / Ceket: Zara, Shirt / Gomlek: Topshop, Bracelet / Bileklik: Massimo Dutti, Sunnies / Gunes gozlukleri: Ralph Lauren.

disturbed

Harassment to pink by leather jacket and pointy toe Louboutins, instantly twisting the ladylike color into a rock chic outfit material.  Speaking of harassment, my feet love these shoes, but for some reason they hate my feet. Deadlock dilemma.

Deri ceketin ve sivri burun Louboutin’lerin pembeye saldirisi sonucu, pembe butun hanimefendiligini kaybederek rock chic bir kiyafetin parcasi haline donusur. Saldirmaktan bahsederken, ayaklarim bu ayakkabilara asiklar, ama nedense ayakkabilar ayagimi HIC sevmiyor. Cozumsuz bir ikilem.
