My Style

Best of 2015

Have you ever had one of those years where it felt like it lasted a lifetime, like almost everything you remember doing happened in just the last 365 days? 2015 has been like that for me in terms of my career, I feel like I started my blog this year and it just evolved and developed even though it’s been 6 years already. This was the year I got featured as the it-girl on Vogue Turkey’s February issue, the year I was one of the instagram users to follow on Cosmopolitan Turkey’s September issue, the year I was on The Main MTL, Flare Mag, multiple posts of NY Mag The Cut, Blue is in Fashion This Year and other websites & blogs, the year I got thousands of repins on Pinterest, the year I raised my Instagram followers from 3k to almost 30k – which was the biggest accomplishment of all on my end. I’m usually a pessimist and I undermine everything I ever do so please bear with  me as I humbly brag for just one day.

I just would like to thank everyone who started to follow/has been following my journey filled with outfit shots (which are incidentally all taken in front of four walls in total), fashion inspirations, #lookofthedays, #flatlays, #fromwhereistands, #ondejeunes, #howiseemycoffees, #icecreams, #wheninbeds, #coffeshopcorners, #cafesaroundtheworlds, #wanderlusts and #lifewelltravelleds. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to do what I love, encouraging me and sending me all your love and support that made 2015 go hand in hand with 2013 (the year I moved to Montreal and got married) as the best year of my life, yet.

Here’s to a happy new year, a 2016 filled with health, peace and joy that would top all expectations, open doors to new adventures, friendships and beautiful memories.

      Thank you Jo, happy new year to you too!! :*

  2. Bravo Elif! I really like your blog and your Instagram is my fav out there. Everytime I have a coffee date with my friends (which means every week!), your Instagram is like a little guide to where to go next. Your pictures are amazing. Your outfits too. I’m kind of very jealous of your wardrobe. I don’t normally comment on post like this but after reading the text, I realize how much work you have put into your blog and I wanted to thank you for this.

    Thank you to make me discover my city and fashion the way you do.

      Thank you so much Elisabeth, it means so much to me. I know that people are following what I do, I see that from the numbers, but it’s nothing compared to reading someone thanking me, appreciating all the work I’m doing because lord knows sometimes it all seem so hard, if meaningless, to keep going. Knowing that I’m – even if in the most insignificant and small way – affecting someone’s life, helping them with something, makes me so happy.

      Thank you so much once again for your kind words, I hope to keep on inspiring you in 2016 🙂
