PACKING TIPS [WHAT CLOTHES I PACKED FOR ISTANBUL]

Imagine packing your bags for a citytrip: you’ve never been in this city before, you don’t know how much you’re going to walk, you have no particular sightseeing-/goingout-/shopping plans and on top of that, the temperatures are estimated at thirteen to twenty-two degrees Celsius (that is: from pretty cold to pretty warm). I hear you read more »

ISTANBUL PHONE PHOTO RECAP

I already showed you the official (that is: taken with my Canon) Istanbul photos (here, here and here), but sometimes the phone-snap-shots are even better at capturing the atmosphere. At least I find myself capturing things with my phone which I don’t think important enough to photograph with my camera, but in recalling memories, those read more »

TURKISH CUSHIONS

I’ve got a new Turkish interior, haha! On our last evening in Istanbul, when Luuk and I were looking for some last minute souvenirs, we found a shop full of Turkish cushions and plaids. Imagine a salesman rambling on like “BEST PRICE FOR YOU MY FRIEND, go somewhere else you NOT FIND PRICE LIKE THIS, read more »

THE T-SHIRT DRESS

Meet my new, comfortable signature look: a t-shirt dress with leggings. Five years ago I never ever in a million years thought I’d wear this combination, but a few weeks ago, I found myself in desperate need of leggings and comfy oversized stuff to put on top of it. And since these Zara leggings are read more »

AYA SOFYA [ISTANBUL DAY 3]

While I’m typing this, it’s sunday evening and Luuk and I arrived home this afternoon.

This is my little recap of day three, read more »

BLACK DUNGAREES AND DOTTED BLOUSE

I’ve never shot this many outfit posts in such a short period of time, haha. Love being on a holiday with my personal photograph… ehh boyfriend. This is what I wore on our third day, when visiting Aya Sofya (for the curious ones: I spotted Gris, the Aya Sofya cat!! Got proof too, show you read more »

THE BLUE MOSQUE [ISTANBUL DAY 2]

Oh, I have the feeling I’m gonna say this over and over again, but we’re having suuuuch a good time here in Istanbul. Last tuesday, our second day, we spent visiting the old city with the spledid Blue Mosque (and Aya Sofya, but we saved that one for wednesday). I really feel like we’re in read more »

LAYERING UP WITH MY RIVER ISLAND PONCHO

Even though the temperatures are rising here in Istanbul, I still need some layers to protect myself against the evening cold. Instead of a coat, I decided to go for a t-shirt + blazer + fluffy cardigan + poncho, the latter being a recent (and very welcome) addition to my wardrobe. It’s huge, it’s grey, read more »

ISTANBUL DAY 1

First day in Istanbul! I’ll try to post a short photo recap of every single day with a maximum of ten photos per post (so you don’t have to scroll endlessly haha), but it’s very hard to select, so I guess there’ll be some additional posts in the future! Anywhere, here’s what we did on read more »

Oh em geeeee, Luuk and I arrived in Istanbul the day before yesterday and we’re having the time of our lives! I’ll tell you all about it soon, but here’s what I wore yesterday, when we strolled around without any plan. You guys were very enthousiastic about my new Zara leggings and now I can read more »
