One-Off

It’s finally time to wear my favorite pair of culottes again, last time I wore them with high heel mules but to make them more feasible I gave it a go with sneakers this time and I must say I’m hooked. This may be my new everyday look just switching the top, especially because I won’t be able to wear it with this crop top anymore – it ripped the second time I try to put it on. I love you Zara but sometimes the stuff you sell is just ridiculous at quality. . White knot front crop top Zara (similar here & here) . Bambi print culottes Topshop (similar here & here) .

Keeping It Simple

My favorite time to dress up is the brief period between spring and summer where it’s chilly enough for a wool fedora and long sleeve shirt but definitely hot enough for bare legs. It usually doesn’t last long so I try to cherish those moments vivaciously. Surprisingly, and luckily, this year that weather seems to be going on for quite some time – both in Montreal and in Turkey – so I’m enjoying this beautiful June of keeping things simple. .

Cloud No 9

There are things you splurge on, and there are things you don’t. A slide with fur upper belongs in the latter group. So what do you do when you are dying to have it (it being the Senso Izalia sandals) but don’t want to spend a penny because you know you won’t be wearing them for the third, maybe even the second time? You get a double sided tape (I used this one from American Apparel), some vintage fur of an old stole (got mine for $5 from a thrift shop) and good old Zara double strap sandals. Take them off next year and they’ll be just as standard as last year. . White long high neck cami top Asos (similar here & here) . White cropped pants Zara (similar here & here) .

Mohair, Yo Hair

My love for cosy and snugly knitwear never seem to cease no matter the season, if there’s a mohair cardigan or a wool sweater somewhere, I have to have it. Actually they may be the only purchase I can justify even if I have millions of the same thing, I wear them %85 of the year. So it’s only fair that I added this Acne to my wardrobe, it would be such a waste if it went to someone else. No one can love it like I will. .

Chilly Willy

It was only in one other city 5 years ago I witnessed this kind of lunatic climate change where the weather jumps from 30 degrees with %80 humidity to 10 degrees with rain in less than 24 hours: Berlin. It was a 3 day trip with us spending the first hellish day at the famous Berlin Zoo since it was the only place where it’d be reasonable to pour down a bottle of water down your head, second day like a proper tourist and the third one freezing to our very core since we didn’t expect to wear coats in the middle of June. I am prepared like a girl scout now, with my suede coat and all, and I’m actually glad this time around. . White dress Zara (similar here & here) .
