casual in Topkapi Palace

Merhaba from Istanbul! Here’s an example of what I’ve been wearing while visiting some friends in Turkey. And what better setting for a shoot than the Topkapi Palace. The weather here has mostly been hot and sunny, so lightweight fabrics are a must. I picked up these pants while shopping near Taksim Square the other day and they are quickly becoming a favorite!

I love the combination of crisp whites and blush tones together; they’re so fresh and light. The subtle gold studs on the shoulders add just the right amount of texture and nice little pop. Oh, and you can never go wrong with a pair of snake – embossed leather shoes!
