Don't you just love those days between summer and autumn, althought there is technically no such thing?

The slouchy boyish trousers are here to stay and I am personally very pleased about that. They're just so comfortable and look very sophisticated with high heels but I also like to wear them with flats. The looks from Richard Chai and ADAM are my favourites.
Sheer fabrics are often used in the spring/summer collections since they evoke an airy and ultra feminine feeling. Not being a fan of the Wang Spring 2010 collection I need to find other inspirations on how to wear sheer blouses and dresses. I think nobody should wear sheer bottoms in real life, it just looks absurd.
It seemed like hemline of skirts and dresses got shorter and shorter the past seasons. Although I'm totally into short things, it's also refreshing to see longer skirts and dresses on the runway for a change. I don't know if this style is "too grown-up" or ladylike for me but for some reason I could see Sarah Jessica Parker wearing that Chado Ralph Rucci number to an event or something.
There was also a burst of bright colours in the collections! Personally I don't dress very colourful, not even in summer. Having said that, I do think they look great on other people. Be it a whole pink look as seen at DKNY or just a pop of colour at Lela Rose or Tuleh, next spring it's definitely time for me to wear something pink!
My fondness for anything nude coloured hasn't stopped yet and I'm glad to see that some designers felt the same way.
I was surprised to see orange in so many collections besides the ones shown above! This brought back memories when I was 13 and desperately looking for an orange tshirt to go with the orange shorts my sister sew for me! ^^ I recall having orange accessories here and here but I have yet to wear a clothing item in that colour. But it sure does look very fresh and summery!
Big fan of the vibrant Derek Lam shorts! The only thing I own in this amazing colour is my scarf,
but my quest for electric blue tights that started last fall is still continuing!

This past Sunday was so relaxing. I spent the afternoon with a friend at a remote place. We couldn't help but admire the beautiful view over the Zurich Lake...
A better shot of my latest cardigan. It's size L btw.
I forgot to show you my Givenchy powder foundation, which was a bday gift from Nesli some time ago. Thank you so much!!!
I did it again. Today, I bought another vintage wannabe Chanel bag. But this is my first black one. Wohoo.

Wish you all a lovely weekend!
There's no easy way to say this, so I'll just say it. I met someone. It was an accident. I wasn't looking for it. I wasn't on the make. It was a perfect storm. She said one thing. I said another. Next thing I knew, I wanted to spend the rest of my life in the middle of that conversation.
Now there's this feeling in my gut. She might be the one. She's completely nuts... in a way that makes me smile -- highly neurotic. A great deal of maintenance required. She is you, Karen. That's the good news. The bad is that I don't know how to be with you right now and it scares the shit out of me. Because if I'm not with you right now, I have this feeling we'll get lost out there. It's a big, bad world full of twists and turns, and people have a way of blinking and missing the moment... the moment that could've changed everything.
I don't know what's going on with us, and I can't tell you why you should waste a leap of faith on the likes of me...but, damn, you smell good -- like home. And you make excellent coffee. That's got to count for something, right?
Unfaithfully yours, Hank Moody

I had a friend from Switzerland visiting for two days and as my internship is over, we had lots of time to wander the streets of Istanbul. That morning I woke up to the sound of rain drops against my window, something I haven't heard for two months!
As my time here approaches to its end I can't help but think about the things I left behind...
