Hi, from the roof top in Turkey again, the pictures were taken on one of out last nights in paradise. In summer and warmer climate, it’s easy to just wear dresses all the time so we (read me) tend to forget about all the amazing summer trousers out there. Especially if you have a kick-ass top to go with like the one I’m wearing from Noordinarysuit.
I think that trousers and a top give you a completely different look compared to a dress, it gives you a more tomboy look that I actually prefer most of the times. I got those ones from the Swedish brand Rodebjer, can’t help myself I love Scandinavian brands, a true Swede I guess…
I just love how the trousers are cut and open up in the front, it makes the trousers floaty when you walk, so beautiful. Now I need to start thinking what to wear when heading to Green Man festival on Friday!
The top is so versatile and looks great styled with a tee or shirt underneath, check out how you can style it on the link below.

I still feel after a few weeks back in the city that my mind can’t really pick up on the city paste that I normally was used to. Imagine how much holiday actually does for you? I’m always quite effective but many times during the day I find myself daydreaming away which is not at all like me. It’s slightly frustrating and nice at the same time. Weird to say the least.
So I will continue feeding you with holiday pictures, just because I can ( The beauty of being your own publisher) and simply because I have so much more to share.
I wore this dress from Swedish brand Monki every day when going to the beach. It’s made from 100 % cotton (Love!) so very breathable in 35 degrees and oversized so not too tight in the waist, also a plus in a hot climate. It’s stripy aswell, I always loved stripes on holidays for some reason and I guess I’m not the only one. Can we also talk about the backdrop?? How beautiful is the Turkish landscape on the coast side, like a postcard!

When Next asked me to pick out an outfit for my summer holiday, it didn’t take me long to make a choice. The yellow dress pops out like no other color during summer and the fact that it is open on the back makes it perfect for an evening out or dinner. Those photos were actually taken just before heading to a diner, I kinda wish I always had a beautiful roof top like this one to snap some photos on.
For me the straw bag is just a must on your holiday, I brought mine to the beach, to dinner and to any other adventure we might have done. The natural material just makes it perfect on holiday when spending a lot of time in nature, plus it matches the dress quite well.
I always thought I couldn’t wear colors like this one due to my light skin tone, but let that be the lesson of the day, to just try things and don’t listen to rules! One of my favorite things with summer is when you just put a lipstick on a sunkissed skin and no other makeup is needed. Goals.
Missing Turkey a lot when seeing those pictures, luckily I have South of France coming up in a month! Lucky lucky me.

So I’m back home in London after one amazing week in Turkey. This was by far one of my best visit there, and I really think it was mainly cause I felt relaxed. I often go on holiday thinking it will calm me down not realizing that you have to be open and ready for the relaxation as well. Anyway, this time I was and most of the days we hang by the sea, eat good food (I LOVE Turkish food and we ate fresh fish, feta cheese, olives, vegetables and fruit that have never taste sweeter) talked, laughed and simply just enjoyed life.
It really good for someone like me to take a break, I am a very intense person and can really easily get caught up in things and forget how to pause and reflect. When you live in a big city like London it’s easy to get sucked into the stress that comes with the city. Since I had some this time this holiday to think about things, there is one thing I want to change when being home and that is my eating habits or let’s say my snacking habits. During the time in Turkey, I ate quite healthy and it made me realize how much it does for you and your well-being. In London, I tend to eat basically anything that will stop my hunger and worst of all; I snack every day something sugary. The other thing I want to do is to have a proper breakfast, the one when you sit down (I eat it standing up on the go, so bad I know!) have your juice, boiled egg, and bread, in peace. So a very good holiday that made me realize things!
I have much more photos to share from Turkey, so just give me time to edit them and I will share them all here. This one’s here are from the pool just next to the sea, I love the sea but I enjoy a pool visit as well. How amazing is my swimsuit in orange, I wore it all the time, and of course my good all Levi’s 501 shorts. They never fail me, they are about 7 years old and still going strong.
Have a lovely Tuesday and most important, don’t forget to slow down!
