Wearing my red and white stripy oversized dress from Swedish brand Monki in the a beautiful Turkish landscape.

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.

Wearing my red and white stripy oversized dress from Swedish brand Monki in the a beautiful Turkish landscape.

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!

Ok, so there are few things and bringing to both my holiday in Turkey and South of France.

THE STRAW HAT

Four accessories essentials I would never go on holiday without. The strawhat, this one is from a market in south of France.

It’s stylish and it protects both you and your hair from the sun, a must in warmer climates.

GOLD JEWELRY’S

Four accessories essentials I would never go on holiday without. Gold jewelry is a must on your summer holidays.

I’m a gold jewelry kinda girl, and in the summer I want them bigger and chunkier. The more the merrier.

TANNED LEATHER SANDALS

Four accessories essentials I would never go on holiday without. The tanned brown leather sandals.

Black in all its glory, nothing beats a tanned foot in a brown leather sandal. For me, it just adds to that natural holiday vibe I’m always aiming for. Plus it goes well with your natural skin color.

A STRAW BAG

Four accessories essentials I would never go on holiday without. The straw bag to bring to the beach and dinner.

A straw bag is easy to carry all your beach essentials in and chic enough to bring on your dinner after the beach. It’s basically the only bag you need for your holiday, in different sizes, shapes, and colors obviously.

What do you bring on your holiday?
