I know I know I am behind my schedule and didn't post as I was planning, so Rome and Florence posts are postponed, first a partial Milano ( focusing on yellow and grey colors ) and then Bucarest with autumn colors before November finishes, fingers crossed, work allowing of course : )
Let's have a walk with me around Via Torino, Duomo, Galleria and Corso Vittorio Emanuele II.

My gold tribute to Rome : ) First a long exposure shot I made of Castel Sant' Angelo along Tevere river, and then me in my golden outfit. This is one of my favorite dresses, it is quite old, I had bought it in Auckland many years back, and the cut is such a classic that I can wear it for few more decades easily : ) And needless to say I like my statement necklace in the same tones, it is from new season : )

I love candles, and made a big collection of special ones over the years. I love their light and smell. I also have sweet memories with candles since my childhood, when I see a burning candle I cant resist passing my finger through the flame quickly, left and right left and right : )
And I love Fornasetti, you will see below, and these are not all the Fornasetti pieces I have at home, there are more in other rooms : ) During my recent Milan trip, I definitely had to visit their store in Corso Matteotti and got myself a little souvenir : )

And minty me : ) Ever since I saw this rooftop on AYSSTYLE, I wanted to visit it. Many years ago, I visited so many roofs around the world thanks to my job, that is why I have a thing for rooftops and towers and the panorama from high up : )
So the day has come, after the fashion week meeting with Aysun, we were in Karakoy visiting friends and one talented painter friend, Nuray Ozler, has a studio on top floor. When she needed to close her studio, I didn't miss the chance and we climbed 5 floors stairs and enjoyed the view : ) As Aysun has quite a bit of photography experience on this roof, as seen here, here and here, she took many nice photos, so I had difficulty to eliminate again : )

Here is a fresh post from this week, and as promised quite colorful after the black outfits : ) Monday evening, I met my friends in Fashion Week and watched one show as well. For the occasion, I chose an outfit which I would normally wear when I want to be elegant. I got this skirt in summer sale and used it a lot this September-October, I like the color and the cut so much that it will probably come out again in other posts. And the silk shirt is from an Italian designer, I found it many years ago in Canada and just love the pattern and colors, I used this shirt a lot over the years. I completed the look with my most comfy high heel sandals and THE BAG which was made for me, I got it few years ago, perfect LILAC, thanks Miuccia : )))

Who doesn't like black and white together ( for sure BJK supporters among Turkish readers love it ) : ) Here is 1 dress in 2 styles, first I wore one Saturday while biking and strolling in the center, second is next day on the hills of Florence when taking nature/landscape photos ( which I might show on another post one day ).
I did many posts with Ju Istanbul designs, and now I finally had the occasion to take photos with this funny cute dress that I got last summer in Bebek Festival, from the lovely blogger Zeynep, you can see her designs on her blog FashionHousebyZeto. This ironic text made me smile and the cut is timeless, a LBD at the end : )

I always enjoyed jumping on a boat, having a toast and tea while crossing the sea, reaching the other side... This summer I got to repeat this experience several times, and at one ride the sky and the colors around were so beautiful and the wind was so enjoyable that these photos came out.

Yesilyurt is a cute little village full of charming boutique hotels. It is located in Canakkale, near Kucukkuyu, Adatepe and Assos which are all worth visiting. I hope to return to this village to fully live the atmosphere and make new memories and take more photos because there are so many corners worth photographing.

Adatepe is a little village located behind Kucukkuyu, in Canakkale . I stayed here with my beloved ones after really tough sad days... It is a place I would like to return.
Welcoming early autumn signs by the pool...

Hello from one of this summer's most IN place of Istanbul, CHEF MEZZE in SORTIE. This summer we had many gatherings in this concept fish restaurant, business dinners with foreign guests, girls night out, birthday parties... And at the end of each night, we said we will come back, they make a feast to your palate and eyes : ) The friendly welcome and service is another reason to return. Gazi & Bilal Ates brothers will open another place for winter and we look forward to other celebrations in their new restaurant.
Bu yazin Istanbul'daki en IN mekanlarindan birinden, SORTIE'nin icin yer alan CHEF MEZZE'den Merhaba : ) Bu yaz yabanci is konuklarina bogazi yasatmak icin, kizlar bulusmasi, dogumgunu partileri vesilesiyle pek cok kez mekani ziyaret ettik, hem goze hem damaga hitap edip, ustune nefis bir manzara ve atmosferde sicak bir karsilama ve servis ile keyifli anlar yasatarak, bizi her seferinde geri donmeliyiz dedirterek ugurladilar. Gazi & Bilal Ates kardesler bu kis yeni bir mekan acma hazirliginda, onumuzdeki bulusmalar, kutlamalar icin yeni mekanlarini merakla bekliyoruz.
I start with a lilac photo and then food and then many atmosphere&outfit photos, we took so many good ones that I had difficulty to eliminate : ) So here is a post with many photos.
Lila uyumlu bir fotograf ile basliyorum, arkasindan da leziz yemekler, atmosfer ve kombin fotolari olacak simdiden soyliyim, o kadar cok iyi fotograf vardi ki ancak bu kadar eleyebildim : )

What can I say, another looong break, 2 months, it has been a tough sad summer for me and I am still trying to recover. Fortunately there are still colors around and I made some sweet memories with them. Here is one very very blue sunset. I liked taking photos in this bay and shipyard, the texture, shapes and colors at the background made it for me : )

Here is me looking towards east in deep thoughts... We visited relatives in Riomaggiore around mid June, you will see the other main reason at the end of the post. Riomaggiore is an old fisherman village, very famous worldwide in the last decade, especially by Americans. It is the last village of the Cinque (5) Terre region, the other important one is Vernazza and I personally like Monterosso too, it is bigger and you have more alternatives for food/cafe/shopping etc. If you dont have plenty of time to visit all 5, I would recommend Vernazza/Riomaggiore/Monterosso in priority order, the other two are Manarola and Corniglia. The quickest way to visit them is by train which stops in all of them unlike the boat which is the second option, or you can use water taxi. Moving by car among the 5 villages and parking near the village is not so easy, especially in high season. Except Monterosso the other 4 villages are on steep hills. The train ride is fun going inside tunnels next to cliffs. If anyone needs more advice/tips, feel free to contact me on comments and I will do my best to help. Now I let the photos doing all talking ...

Hello from Florence streets, these photos were taken last week during Pitti show. As some of you might know Sartorialist and many other important bloggers & fashionistas were in town and streets of Florence were packed with fashion business people enjoying aperitivo at new season shows of brands. We were invited to one event and as usual jumped on our bikes and took these photos, I think this explains the name of the post : )
I love cobalt and I love grey so here is my combination of two on a cool June day, I hope this is the last post me wearing a jacket for the next few months, summer can start for good : ) And this was the opening of my new in cobalt pistol boots for which I have strong feelings : )))

Hello from Istanbul/Nisantasi streets wearing a JUISTANBUL "Olivia" dress for a wedding in early May.
I liked the combination of grey and coral, hope you like it too : )
This pose is a pure coincidence, we were waiting at traffic light to cross the street, and I just couldn't resist the clashing anthracite color and "AY" in the plate : ) And I always liked the fashion photos with moving cars and taxis at the background, so I finally have one like those : )))

Last week I was in Istanbul and one day after work I met my lovely blogger friend Aysun of Aysstyle and visited TOG BAZAAR. We had quite a bit of fun taking photos of each other. She took so many good ones (all photos are with no filter / no edit / no zoom ) that I had difficulty to pick for the post, so I use some of them here and some I will use for flipagram video to publish on instagram : )
