A blog from warm and magical Istanbul. In the Netherlands, summer has definitely come to an end. It’s cold, rainy, and there’s lots of wind. I don’t know where you are, but if you are craving some sun and you’re able to find time to go on a city trip, l recommend Istanbul!

It’s an impressive and really inspiring city. I enjoy walking its streets for hours and hours. All the different impressions, they’re incredible. There are many cultural sightseeing spots and if I may, I’d also like to advise you to sail the Bosphorus and bring a visit to the Prince Islands. Also make time to relax a bit and enjoy all of the food.. it’s delicious. Hide your scales, because diets and Istanbul do not mix.. But you will love it, I’m sure!

When I go shopping, I always try to buy something that has a beautiful print, an interesting design or an item that is made of a special fabric. Because of this, a simple outfit like this one can still be quite interesting. The Centa top by MINIMUM has a relaxed fit and is a fine basic. When I pull it out of my jeans after a whole day of being crumpled up, there are still no wrinkles. It’s ideal!

These retro high-rise mom jeans by Cheap Monday are my new favorite jeans. They fit perfectly and I love the light blue washing. The long coat by Dr. Denim is very simple yet very cool, with its special gray color, low shoulder seams and deep front pockets.
