Details / melon

As much as I am dying to put on my swimming suit in the same melon color and lie on the beach right now, I have to settle down with it only being the color of my pants in my office look. Well, we should all give office looks a chance right? A chance to shine like they are as cool as our brightening summer wear that we put on our tanned skins…

Her ne kadar ayni renkte olan bikinimle suan deniz kenarinda gunesleniyor olmayi dilesem de, bu kavun pantolonun ofis kiyafetime renk katmasiyla yetinmek durumundayim. Yani sonucta hepimiz ofis kiyafetlerimize de arada bir sans vermek zorundayiz degil mi? Sanki onlar da yanik tenlerimizde parlayan yazlik kiyafetlerimiz kadar guzellermis gibi…

flare

I was looking for a pair of black, soft, high waisted flare jeans for months and I found them in my all time favorite department store, Selfridges in London. Isn’t Selfridges the heaven of department stores you think? Everything always so neat, organized and spacious…

The weather is the best today, just the perfect day to spend outside. We are going to a fish restaurant with friends, I hope everyone has a very good Saturday night!

Evos & Ahmet short wedding video.

I am finally sharing it, the short (15 minute) version of our wedding video. You have been asking me a lot of questions regarding the wedding, and I am often avoiding to make bold statements. It should reflect your taste and I am so afraid to make a suggestion that will not work out for you in the end. But I can safely and surely state that Ayse Kaya (photography) and Can Kinalikaya (video) are the best ones in Turkey. Their work is beyond the usual wedding photos and videos. And I’d say photos and videos are BY FAR the most important parts of the wedding because they are endless. It just amazes me to think that we will still be watching this video 50 years later.

We watched the video with laughters, tears and joy with all our friends & family at our house. I hope you like it as well.

**I couldn’t upload the video Full Screen, if you want to watch it Full Screen visit here**

april.

Last few days of april… the weather is fantastic, just the perfect amount of heat. It’s been getting easier to pick up an outfit for work, a pair of fitting pants, silk shirts, ballerinas and jackets for layering up.

Nisan ayinin son gunleri… hava tam kivaminda bir sicaklikta. Sabahlari ise giderken kiyafet secmek boyle havalarda o kadar kolay oluyor ki. Bir pantolon, ince bir gomlek, babet ve ince bir ceket yeterli.

the cardigan.

I must say I found the perfect simple cardigan. I’m not talking about a remarkable piece here, it is a simple black cardigan but it is definitely the best one I own. I think at least 5 people asked where it was from on the first day I wore it and I think it deserves all the compliments. It is from Machka, a Turkish brand that I am loving in recent years. I can’t leave the store without buying a single item every time I visit so it wasn’t the best thing for my budget when they opened a store near where I live. Ok it’s not that close but whatever, here it is. Simple, soft and black.

Kesinlikle en guzel hirkayi buldugumu iddia ediyorum. Cok degisik bir parcadan bahsetmiyoruz, neticesinde basit siyah bir hirka ama kesinlikle dolabimdakilerin en guzeli! Daha giydigim ilk gunde en azindan 5 kisi nereden aldigimi sordu ve bence butun iltifatlari hakkediyor. Hirka Machka’dan, son yillarda cok cok sevdigim Turk markasi. Ne zaman girsem elimde bir paketle cikmaya basladim ve tahmin edersiniz ki evimin dibine actiklari magaza butcem acisindan cok hayirli olmadi. Tamam cok da dibinde degil yani ama, neyse iste kendisi. Sade, siyah, yumusacik ve mukemmel!

easy.

I had no time to do any posts this week so they are all coming up in a row beginning from today. Yesterday the weather was the worst it could be and I wasn’t feeling very well so we stayed in and at some point I think that was all I needed. Saturdays usually don’t count as weekends for me lately, they begin with a 8 o’clock rush out from bed, breakfast, pilates, hairdresser, tailor, dry cleaning, visiting parents, shopping for house, getting ready and going out. So they are kind of a different version of my weekdays, the only good thing is that I get to see my friends at night.

Below is what I wore this Tuesday, the weather was again very bad but luckily next week it will officially be spring in Istanbul. Easy looks such as this breezy pair of pants and simple knits are something that my wardrobe tries to avoid but at the same time desperately needs. They are not the most beautiful / original pieces but I just can’t think my wardrobe without them.

Butun hafta post yapmak icin hic zaman bulamadim bu yuzden hafta boyunca cektigimiz resimler bugun itibariyle post edilecekler. Dun hava daha kotu olamazdi ve ben kendimi cok iyi hissetmiyordum bu yuzden evde kalmayi tercih ettik; meger tek ihtiyacim olan oymus. Son zamanlarda Cumartesi gunleri benim icin haftasonundan cok kosturmali haftaici is gunlerim gibi geciyor. Sabah 8de yataktan firlayip kalkmalar, acele kahvaltilar, pilates, kuafor, kuru temizleyici, terzi, eve alisveris yap, annene babana git derken eve gelip hazirlanip anca kendimizi disari atiyoruz. Tek guzel yani tabii ki aksami arkadaslarimizla gecirebiliyor olmak. 

Bu Sali gunu giydiklerim oldukca kolaya kacilmis bir secim 🙂 Bu tarz pantolonlar aslinda genellikle almaktan kacindigimin ama dolabimin en ihtiyaci olan parcalari. En orijinal ve en guzel parcalari oldugunu soyleyemeyecegim ama bu kolay parcalar olmadan dolabimi dusunemiyorum.

black + white

This is what I wore on a warm saturday evening spent with friends. Wearing black boots under a white dress would be so unacceptable a few years ago, just like wearing striped tees on floral skirts or wearing tights with sandals. See guys, just like Justin Bieber says, we should never say never in life. Lesson learned. Thank you Justin.

Sonunda gelen sicak havalar sayesinde bu cumartesi beyaz bir elbise giydim. Birkac sene once beyaz yazlik bir elbisenin altina giyilen siyah botlar kabul edilemez bir kombinasyondu, tipki cicekli eteklerin uzerine giydigimiz cizgili bluzlar ve burnu acik ayakkabilarla giydigimiz kilotlu coraplar gibi… Hersey degisiyor, bu yuzden sevgili Justin Bieber’in dedigi gibi asla asla dememek gerekiyor. Dersimizi aldik, tesekkur ederiz Justin.

grey.

It’s already spring (finding too hard to believe this) but I am still into total black or grey outfits. Not that I am protesting spring or anything but dressing for work has its own set of challenges and the biggest one is to adjust yourself to the constantly changing weather. I am also finding out that I am not a morning person so it is quite difficult for me to dress up in colors and patterns at 8 o’clock. At the end, your outfit should reflect your mood doesn’t it?

Bahar geldi bile (buna inanmakta hala zorluk cekiyorum) ama ben hala bastan asagi siyah veya gri giyinmeyi seviyorum. Bahari protesto ettigimden falan degil ama bence ise giyinmenin zaten kendine has zorluklari var ve bahar devamli degisen havasiyla bu duruma pek de yardimci olmuyor. Ayrica yavas yavas farkediyorum ki ben kesinlikle bir sabah insani degilim dolayisiyla renkler ve desenler icerisinde evden cikmak sabahin 8inde basarabilecegim bir misyon degil genellikle. Sonucta kiyafetimiz o anlik modumuzu yansitiyor, yanlis miyim?
