Hey guys, for those of you who have been – trying to – comment on my posts for the past couple of weeks but couldn’t see it on the page or get a reply from me: all of your comments were in the spam folder for some unknown reason, so sorry about that. I fished them all out and hopefully it won’t happen again so comment away, I always love to hear what you think!

Wrappidy Wrap

Wrappidy Wrap

Thanks to Giambattista Valli couture headwraps, I remembered how I survived the previous very hot and humid summers in Istanbul. Take a long and thin scarf and wrap it around your head twice: first being a turban knot, second being a regular knot and voila! You have the solution to 1) bad hair days 2) super humid days 3) rainy days 4) dirty hair days 5) flat hair days. And that makes up %80 of my days.

Vested

Vested

BTW forget about the vest; I’ve found a magical recipé to (looking like you have) long, lean legs. You take one ounce of an asymmetrical wrap skirt that covers one of your legs all the while baring the other one all, add a drop of drape detail to prevent the stretchy jersey fabric from looking tacky, season with a summer vest if you have wide thighs like mine and serve with an elongating pair of pumps or sandals. Fair warning: it’s gonna be hard to go back to flats after this.

Summer Burrito

Summer Burrito

Dresses, along with bags, are the least favorite items in my wardrobe. I don’t like the idea of wearing something someone else has already decided exactly how I should wear, so years ago I got into the habit of wrapping kimonos, cardigans or what have you around my too girly or too bland dresses to make them more personal. It’s better to be a burrito than a plate of rice.

Off You Go

Off You Go

The Fashion Medley | Off You GoOff the shoulder blouse Zara (similar here & here) // white pleated maxi skirt Vintage Ralph Lauren (similar here & here) // brown sandals Zara (similar here & here)

Why the hell have we waited SO long to bring back off the shoulder tops?! It’s the perfect mélange of fancy t-shirt and comfy tank top – better than both actually. Not only they level up your quotidien looks, they also perfectly and elegantly widen your shoulders to make your thighs look smaller. I like small butts and I can not lie.

Chunk of Wood

Chunk of Wood

Those heels are my most impulse buy of all time and it wasn’t even an online sale – I saw them, loved them, bought them without even thinking if I can pair them with something (have a general problem with brown) or if they are comfortable enough. Two years later they are still one of my favorites, going well with everything and actually more comfortable than most heels. I say, always invest in chunks of wood.
