denim & black

Today I wore a simple outfit to work. As you already know from previous posts, Maje is one of my favorite brands. Every year it seems like the brand’s collection always fits perfectly to my life. And also considering my basic fashion math calculations (cost per wear), every piece is worth their price 100%. There are certain pieces from Maje that I have been wearing again and again, like the black leather jacketĀ (previously seen here and here), and the skirt you are seeing in this post. The skirt was love at first sight and it has the capability to easily transform my outfits. I am also wearing the simplest & most comfortable black suede ballerinas, they are of course from Pretty Ballerinas. The shirt is from Topshop and I am totally obsessed with its color and perfect fit. The necklace is also by Maje bought from their super cute store in Marais. The wool jacket is by Tara Jarmon and my bag is Balenciaga – I’ve been wearing it for years and it seems like the leather gets better with ages.

Bugun ise cok sade bir kiyafet giydim. Daha onceki postlarimdan da hatirlayacaginiz gibi Maje uzun suredir favori markalarimdan biri. Her yeni koleksiyonlari, o seneki zevkimle mukemmel sekilde uyusuyor, ayrica her zaman yaptigim basit matematik hesaplamalarina (fiyat / giyme sayisi) dayanarak soyleyebilirim ki aldigim her parca fiyatina 100de 100 degdi. Mesela siyah deri ceketim (daha once bu post‘ta ve bu post‘ta gordunuz) ve bu etek gibi… Etek kesinlikle ilk goruste askti ve defalarca giydim. Ayagimdaki babetler her zaman cok sade ve cok rahat olan Pretty Ballerina’dan. Gomlegim Topshop, fit’i ve rengi sebebiyle kendisine bayiliyorum. Kolyem ise yine Maje’dan, Marais bolgesindeki sirin mi sirin magazasindan almistik. Yun ceketim Tara Jarmon ve cantam Balenciaga – cantami senelerdir takiyorum ve derisi sanki eskidikce guzellesiyor.

beymen academia.

Beymen Academia – my new obsession. The brand is returned to life after almost 20 years, and fulfills the gap of simple, clean, perfect quality clothing. Today I wore two pieces from the collection. After a tiring weekend, a leather skinny, jean shirt and lace up booties are fair enough to save the first workday of the week. Sometimes simple is the best isn’t it?

Beymen Academia uzun zamandir takintim olmus durumda. Marka neredeyse 20 yil sonra bir hazir giyim markasi olarak hayata dondu ve kaliteli, yalin, sade cizgiden hoslananlarin hayatinda buyuk bir boslugu doldurdu. Bugun Beymen Academia’ya ait 2 parca giydim. Yorucu bir haftasonundan yeni bir haftaya baslarken, deri tayt, guzel bir kot gomlek ve bagcikli deri botlar uzuuun bir pazartesi gununu kurtarmaya kesinlikle yeterli. Bazen sadelik en guzel sey, sizce de oyle degil mi?

this weekend.

This weekend we went to London for only 2 days. It was a very short time and we were so tired but it was full with friends, lots of food, coffee and favorite places. The weather was surprisingly good so sitting outside in cafes and having coffee & drinks with friends was even more appealing. We already miss it.

Bu haftasonu 2 guncuk Londra kacamagi yaptik. Tatil cok kisa olmasina ragmen bol bol yemek, arkadas ve favori mekan sigdirdik. Hava sasilacak derecede guzeldi ve arkadaslarimizla acik havada oturup birseyler icmenin keyfi dolayisiyla baskaydi. Simdiden ozluyoruz.

the wedding… … …

Our wedding has come and passed without even a proper farewell across the city with hideous trappings, flying balloons or fireworks… Well that’s kind of what you are expecting if preparing a wedding requires a handful amount of tasteful family members, – a mother with 4 hands is a must -, plentiful good friends who turn out to be very successful full-time cheer up mechanisms, a small army of professionals from a wedding organization company, tons of advices (none applied though) and finally yourself – the soon bride to be – buried in a sack of pictures for inspiration.

Well, I don’t mean to scare off the new “born to be afraid of commitment” generation but that’s what you should be expecting if you want a well organized, good wedding. You always have the option to pay the money and back off, leave every detail to professionals, but this option was not even an option if the lead character is me – many of my closest friends can confirm that I am a total control freak, with proof. seriously. As much as I have adored every single detail that A46 team has created, I entered the ballroom at least 20 times during the 3 days of decorating process and was dragged out by Ahmet and reminded that I had to let people do their jobs. Blaaah.

I did MY JOB though. I wore a bridal, became a total bridezilla at the last minute, freaked everyone out, had a couple of drinks, said yes, kissed 600 people (makes 1200 cheeks), changed my dress, danced on my heels until 4 a.m, jumped, laughed and DONE! There you have the summary of the short transition from being a bride to becoming just another wife. Not that I’m complaining, but when I think about the days, God they were fun!!! The wedding hassle began 3 days before when our friends began to arrive Istanbul from London, Athens, Paris, Madrid and etc. Our friends and family were absolutely AMAZING at all times, making everything much more easy, calm and enjoyable. Thinking now about back then makes me realize why I love them this much. Seriously, they are the best.

Anyways, since my job as a bride is totally done, here is my job as a blogger. After tons of request, here you have the wedding pictures. This is gonna be quite long so I hope you have time.
