Dress SheInside / SHOES Soludos / NECKLACE H&M (old) / BAG H&M / SUNNIES Ray Bans
I first fell in love with this dress at Zara, but hesitated to buy it, as I do all too frequently with things at Zara. Any regular Zara shopper knows that their inventory moves quickly, meaning their most popular items/sizes sell out extremely fast. The season kind of passed but I was still thinking about how I should've-would've-could've bought this dress. A month-ish before our trip to Turkey, during my 'omg I need a whole new wardrobe for my vacation' frenzy, I found this exact replica on SheInside. I'd heard of the website before on other blogs, but was admittedly a little distrusting because of the really low prices, one size only dresses, and pictures that were sometimes straight from the Zara website. I took a risk and ordered it (along with some other things, of course, that unfortunately didn't fit as well).

Normally, I find myself striving to add layers and dimensions to my outfits to make them more interesting and unique. But while on vacation I find nothing more practical than wearing dresses. This black jumpsuit was just that- such an easy piece to style that I felt pangs of regret for not wearing it sooner (one of those things that sat in my closet with the tag for a longgg time before finally seeing the light of day- and that too in Istanbul! Lucky jumpsuit!).
JUMPSUIT H&M, also love this casual, open back jumpsuit from Zara & this more dressy one shoulder jumpsuit from ASOS / BAG Nine west / SANDALS Sam Edelman via Piperlime / SUNNIES Ray Bans / NAILS Color Club "Hot Pink"
I wore this outfit for our first day exploring the popular sights in Istanbul- the Aya Sofia and the Blue Mosque; both of which were spectacular and beautiful in their own ways. At sunset we took a ferry trip down the Bosphorous to Ortakoy- one of my favorite memories from the entire trip. The town was sprawling with jewelry stands and waterside dining options, aka I was in heaven. I threw on a white linen button down (left it unbuttoned) over the jumpsuit since it cooled off a bit in the evenings.
Stay tuned for more outfits from the trip! Thanks for reading!
