Come on Barbie, Let’s go party

I won’t lie…I love Barbie. It represents my childhood perfectly. I recall dressing up my Barbie’s and being their “therapist” by having them tell me their problems that I always seemed to solve with the simplest answer…if only life’s problems were that easy to solve! Pardon my random thought, but to get the real juice about this post is that Barbie has collaborated with Forever 21! I was lucky enough to get an invite to the launch at the Forever 21 location in Santa Monica, CA.

It was a super pink event, and so much fun. Pink carpet, Barbie nail station, ice cream sandwiches, a DJ and a photo booth. Oh, and of course important thing, Barbie’s pink car was parked right outside. I know I sound like a little girl, but hey…it’s Barbie!

The real highlight of the night was Ken! I mean, there he is supporting Barbie’s career and not complaining…the perfect man right?

Gold Tones

Only four more days of Istanbul left but it’s okay…I actually miss work a lot. I miss my clients, my friends & most of all, driving! I never drive here (the traffic and drivers are ridiculous!) so I’m excited to get behind the wheel. Today’s look is very monochromatic and golden hues are some of my favorites to wear. There is something about the olive/gold combo I can’t seem to get enough of. Hope you’re all having a lovely summer as well :).

Istanbul Style

Another post, another lovely day in Istanbul. I’ve been spending so much time with family, it’s going to be so hard to leave them this Sunday. However, instead of thinking of the sad, I’m enjoying the present. I hope everyone is having a lovely summer as well. Today I saw both my grandmother’s and then went shopping with my family at this amazing shopping center called Zorlu Center. It’s a mixture of super high-end and affordable boutiques.

White Night Out

I’m in Istanbul and as always having an incredible time! I spent the first week at a resort called Hillside Beach Club so I wasn’t able to really take any outfit pictures since I practically lived in a bikini (not complaining). I’m finally back in Istanbul seeing family & friends and I couldn’t be happier. Last night I went to happy hour and dinner at the new hotel The Grand Tarabya. I’ve watched it be built for several years and was happy to be able to experience it in it’s newly re-modeled glory.

when the sun goes down

Hope you’ve all had a safe fourth of July weekend :). Mine was very relaxing and it felt good to be mellow and productive. Lots of reading eating for me! Today’s look was from last weekend. I bought this cream skirt from Zara and thought it was such an elegant piece. I opted for a sequined top add a different texture as well as keep the neutral color palette. Nothing like sparkling at night :).

snap out of it

Today’s post is a bit more casual than normal. I recently bought this skirt and fell in love with the colors. I figured I could do any color as a top to keep it bright but opted for a fun lightwash denim blouse. I also have found a pair of “flats” (okay, they have a small heel to them) that I am obsessing over. They are so comfortable and go with practically anything.
