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.

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!

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!

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?

One Of Those Days

Yesterday was one of those days that you wake up wishing you never leave your bed but end up realizing what you actually needed was a good workout to start the day, a glass of wine and good company for the rest.

Sabah kalktigimda butun gun yatakta miskinlik yapmak istedigimi dusunuyordum. Meger asil ihtiyacim olan gune erkenden sporla baslamak, ve sonrasi icin de bi kadeh sarap ve iyi bir arkadasmis. Kesinlikle daha iyi opsiyon.

Slipped into my fave ballerinas, leather pants and cosy knit for the day. Continue reading

I’m spending my holiday in my Bodrum summer house with my family. It’s the biggest public holiday in Turkey – the Sugar feast. Istanbul is literally empty nowadays, my friends will spread all around the world for the holiday – USA, Thailand, London, Fethiye etc. Here are some photos from Bodrum before we close our house for the year – also 4 outfit posts!

Introduction to Fashion, 101

The simplest way to look stylish. Skinny pants and an oversized top. So easy, no risks. Sandra, Elin, and Olsen twins do it the best I think.

Tarz gorunmenin en basit yolu, skinny bir pantolon ve bosbol bir ust. Cok kolay ve risksiz. Sandra, Elin ve Olsen ikizleri bu isi en iyi becerenlerden bence.

Le Pain Quotidien in Turkey is definitely the best. As a person who tried the strawberry tart in each country she’s been – ours is the perfect one so far. I will leave for Bodrum again tomorrow morning, this time it will be a more relaxed & casual holiday for me – family and all 🙂

Here is my outfit today.

Gittigim her yerde Le Pain Quotidien’in meshur cilekli tartini denemis biri olarak rahatlikla iddia edebilirim ki en iyisi bizimki! Bugun de kendisini tattim, tekrardan onayladim 🙂
