Today we needed to go to Caddebostan to run some errands. I had first thought I should not look too festive since this little visit was work related, but then ended up in my frilly floral skirt and floral cap 🙂 This skirt was love at first sight to me, had gotten it at the beginning of this season. Wore it all the time, it has become some sort of uniform to me and I have yet to be bored of it! I had liked the hat at first, thought about it for a while but then put it back on the rack at the store when I first saw it. This week I saw it again and it was on sale, and this time I did not pass 🙂
This is another non-sundayish sunday for me. I am not complaining. I don’t remember the last time I had ‘leisure’ time, ‘leisure’ is not for me anyway. I always say days should have been 36 hours. For me, rest equals sleep. If I get too tired during the day, I just nap for 1-1.5 hours. And such midday naps provide massive revitalizing power both physically and mentally, I just continue with work after that.
This morning we got up at a very non-sundayish hour, had an OK breakfast and moved to the office. I was drained a couple of hours after noon. Following a short but pleasant nap (and most crucially with a rested face) we had a photoshoot before dinner.
Are we ready for summer parties? A straplessmini dress with a floral pattern, open stilettos of the warmest of colors, a tiny and stylish purse.. As for the accessories, large hanging earrings over bare shoulders and loose hair .. A neat ring and golden colored bracelets worn together (I love the one with ring-no:5, two birds with one stone eh).. There you go! 🙂
I’m in love with this color! I have been obsessing over having this color all over my wardrobe for the last 5-6 years. It’s so pastel, soft, and warm too. Round framed glasses don’t really become on my round face but they are so pretty I just had to suggest them in this post. And I would never- seriously never say no to these bohemian chic accessories.
I went shopping for stuff I had been postponing for so long: tights for sports and walks. I had seen and liked the tights a couple of days before and set my mind on buying them (were super discounted from last season) but what was buying shoes from Oysho while you’re there to buy tights about? Well, we have been paying loads to some brands for years, yet these shoes present such a high quality that matches –and maybe exceeds- them at such a low price. I could not pass on this. I love the colors too, they even match my tights. I went for a hike to try them on and they did great:)
Today was the “springiest” day we have had lately. I must admit that I am seriously over-cautious about being cold. Even when the weather is just fine I prepare for the worst and get lost in scarves and gloves and puffy ear muffs and pretty much everything I could put on, ending up just carrying them around and getting tired. I know it makes no sense and am trying to train myself out of it. Today it was exactly the kind of weather you’d “grab something to wear and get out” and I made good progress on my weather appropriate clothing training by not wrapping my head in stuff :)))
The knit coat, biker jeans and boots I am wearing are the pieces I have worn most often this winter- they have become some sort of uniform to me. I had fallen in love with the coat the moment I saw its patchwork like pattern and pockets. Added its comfort, it had become an irreplaceable favorite:) I will not get into the details of my love for biker jeans, it is beyond words.. I had written about my boots in a previous post-“All Black“.
Did I tell you that I love cats? Yes I did:))) But then, did I tell you that I love doing puzzles?
Today Guney came home with two sweet surprises: two cat puzzles, each cuter than the other:)) One is a work of Eugene Ivanov, 1000 pieces, but the pieces are very small and the whole thing is A3 in size. This one might be a little tiresome, I have never done a puzzle with small pieces, but I suppose I will catch a grip soon:))
What would be our favorite way to spend our precious and very limited time in Burhaniye? Photographing cats of course :). Cats, along with dogs, are the most fun and photogenic friends we have in this world. I am especially in love with the little one in the last photos. Sure it will grow up to be a gorgeous cat- it looks so much like the kitten days of my old boy Asil :).
Burhaniye’ye gidiyoruuuuz. Biraz temiz hava alacağız(oksijen sarhoşu olacağız), biraz da aile ortamı yaşayacağız en şevkatlisinden (ve de en güzel yemeklisinden).
Uçaktan görebildiğimce dışarıyı seyretmeyi çok severim, gündüz ve gece, iki türlü de çok apayrı şekilde keyiflidir benim için. Gündüz vakti tarım alanları, yeşilin onlarca, yüzlerce değişik tonuyla boyanmış gibi durur, çok güzeldir. Gece yolculuklarında da ulaşım ağı ve yerleşimler çok net okunur bütün ışıklarıyla, bir görsel şölen, sanki gerçek değilmiş gibi. İstanbul.. Artık gerçekten de bilimkurgu gibi algılanabilecek nitelikte bir büyüklüğe sahip.. Bir şehir plancısı olarak, uçakta pencereden dışarı bakınca bu kadar capcanlı ve gerçek bir gece haritası görünce çok heyecanlandım ve ne yazık ki bir o kadar da üzüldüm İstanbul’un inanılamaz büyüklüğüne..
This weekend Güney and I wanted to take a break from work and promised to at least go out for tea/coffee. What to wear? The weather is unstable, kinda better than a few days back though- yes, it is vest time! A light dress with a patchwork pattern, and a warm vest. I am absolutely against fur, but love faux fur for texture. The Zara vest in this outfit felt so real when I first touched it that I immediately withdrew my hand, grossed out thinking it really is sheep fur. Then I checked the inner label and voila, 100% polyester, no problem here. Hands back on- aww so fluffy! Toasty!
Our café escapade lasted about two hours, we returned home bummed with due work on our minds. Still, a break is a break 🙂
