Well, it’s only been nearly two months since I came back, but I thought I’d do some posts about my summer holiday… now that the sun is completely gone. It might work to remind me about when it was hot and my lovely summer clothes weren’t vacuum-packed into cotton bricks!
I had the most amazing two weeks in Turkey in September. Neither I nor the boyfriend had been before, and he’s been to far more places than me, so that was a bonus! We planned to visit three different areas of Turkey – Istanbul, Bodrum and Cappadocia, with different things planned for each. Bodrum was the relaxation part of the holiday and, therefore, the place where I did very little.
I didn’t even bring my big camera out with me when we did leave our sun loungers, so forgive the iPhone snaps for this segment!
Since it’s just 5km from Bodrum, party-palace Gümbet got debased faster than other peninsula villages. Now more or less a British colony, Gümbet is an outpost of neon, cheap cocktails, energy drinks and table-dancing. In winter, the place is derelict.
Lots of no makeup and swimsuits which I wasn’t really up for posing in, so the only fashion shot you’ll get this time is the above shot of me posing in a lovely vintage inspired playsuit which I’ve had so long that it actually looks vintage (plus accidental feature of Rocket Originals bag), and my amazing Lucky Lou souvenir shoes which arrived the day before I went away and were worn nearly every day on this segment of my trip. ♥ This is the third pair of Lucky Lous I have owned as the design of the Souvenir changed a few times over the last 6 years or so and I’ve sold all my previous ones… these are by far the best with their padded sole. Wish I’d had more chance to wear them over the summer… next year!
