On Track

I understand now what I couldn’t understand before; sweaters with sandals, coats with bare legs and all of the other quirky combinations of clothing are what you end up doing when the weather is a little schizophrenic: rainy but hot hours after a terribly cold morning with sunshine. PS: after using a small satchel for decades, I literally couldn’t fill my new tote. It’s empty.

Last of Summer

Last of Summer

The Fashion Medley | Last of SummerDraped asymmetrical top Nasty Gal (similar here & here) // black bustier Topshop (similar here) // black ripped jeans Topshop (similar here & here) // black sandals Stradivarius (similar here & here) // sunglasses Spitfire

I’m actually fooling myself by saying the last of summer, as if it was still warm enough to be summer – it was already fall in Turkey but as of today it’s 10 degrees in Montreal. The heating is on, polar robes and winter slippers are out. Soon you’ll be witnessing this top layered with a sweater (and just a  little later with a sweater and a coat). Goodbye vitamin D, my body is going to miss you.

It’s Official

It’s Official

The Fashion Medley | It's OfficialWhite wool sweater Zara (similar here & here) // black asymmetrical pleated skirt Zara (similar here & here) // black Converse All Stars // black leather backpack Onna Ehrlich // sunglasses Spitfire

As much as I try to deny it and prove otherwise, fall has officially arrived. In fact it arrived to Canada mid-August but I’m talking about a real humane climate – if it’s fall in Turkey, it’s fall everywhere. Though I very much enjoyed wearing my beloved new huge wool sweater even after the sun came out which is ridiculous since I’m gonna have to wear it for the next 12 months of Montreal winter.

The Fashion Medley InstagramAs you can guess from the lack of posts, I’ve been on my summer vacation (which means I went to Turkey) and became a tourist in my own home – which basically is the most wonderful feeling ever. I am updating my Instagram frequently so if you are curious about where I’ve been / what I’m doing and want to see the wonders of Turkey (or #comeseeturkey, as Instagram calls it) follow me on Instagram.

Love September

Love September

The Fashion Medley | Love SeptemberWhite ribbed sweater Zara (similar here & here) // black cotton harem culottes Project for Sunday (similar here & here) // black heels Zara (similar here & here)

If I were to choose one month to last for an entire lifetime I’d most probably choose either May or September. Summer or winter are definite no-nos for me and I hate rain so warmish weather with a little chill every now and then is the perfect combination. Sweater on top, shorts on bottom and any kind of shoe you’d like – no muss no fuss.

Hey Sailor

Hey Sailor

Though it would probably be a little difficult to walk around in those heels on a boat. However I’m really glad to have finally tailored those culottes, did you know that it’s almost 10 times cheaper to shorten hems (and all other tailoring stuff) in Turkey than in Canada? Well, now you do. You can pay round-way shipping and send the items to a tailor in Turkey and it still may be cheaper, I’m serious.
