Istanbul

I’m finally getting around to sorting through my pictures from Istanbul – it was such a fun trip and it felt so surreal to be there. The Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, and the Grand Bazaar are must-sees (was so fun to shop for kilim rugs in the bazaar!) and we also loved the Ministry of Coffee in between all of our touristy stops. Istanbul is such a fascinating city –hope you enjoy our snaps!

P.S. A few of you have asked me for hotel recemmendations when we travel. We always use Mr. & Mrs. Smith and have been impressed each time. Highly recommend it!

In My Closet: Isabel Marant Etoile Leather Jacket

After realizing that a good leather jacket was one main thing that I was missing from the French basics list, and after saving for many moons, this gorgeous piece is finally a staple in my wardrobe. It’s such a soft leather and I love the fact that it’s collar-less, it’s a jacket that I’ll be wearing for many, many years.

Blanket Cape

Cold, rainy days call for warm blanket capes and hats {see also: this post}. I’m loving this Topshop cape and have been wearing it everywhere in lieu of a jacket, so cozy and warm! Have you tried out the cape trend at all?

I love this checklist that’s floating around on Pinterest right now — it’s so helpful to have a tangible list of basics that you can easily mix and match depending on the occasion or season. This is a great way to start building your wardrobe and you can add in trendier, interesting pieces to fill it in as you go. There are a few things I’m missing off of here {a leather jacket is high up on my list!} and a few items I’d add to it: a nice pea coat and a classic pair of sunglasses {like Ray-Bans} are musts for me. Shop my picks from the list below!
