friday's fancies #64 - turkish fashion.

happy friday! i don't know about you, but i am ready for the weekend!! it's suppose to warm up in chicago, so i am determined to get a bike ride in. i also want to do bake special for h on saturday-- it's his birthday! this week i have shared a lot of my photos from Turkey and now i'd like to share some of my favorite fashion trends i spotted in Istanbul! 

-h and i spotted cobalt blue jeans were EVERYWHERE..and now i really want a pair. 
-while we were in turkey the weather was gorgeous, 70's sunny and light trench coats were the popular style. 
-i saw quite a bit of floral tops + color block flats
-and finally...the evil eye ring. there are blue glass evil eyes are in just about every tourist shop in the city but i remembered seeing this house of harlow ring before the trip and i was determined to find something similar in Istanbul. fail. they didn't sell anything like it! note to turkish jewelers... dooo it! the gold rings would be a hit!

have a great weekend!
xo,

  11. I loved the things that you shared about my country, thank you for it. I hope you had great time. I saw from your photos that you visited the best touristic places here (and I studied the university right there in Beyazit, maybe you saw the building). Loves from Turkey :)
