Late Afternoon, Istanbul
Anoushka Probyn Fashion Blog - Free People Istanbul Mustard Dress

I remember when I was about 10 the boho look was about the coolest thing ever, with those huge tiered maxi skirts paired with a loose belt (a chain belt if you were particularly sassy), a spaghetti strap tank and long bead necklaces. Extra points if it all came from Tammy Girl. I’m not sure if it was ever a grownup trend or if it was diluted down to be kid friendly, but man did I think I looked fly (looking back, I was wrong).

Luckily the trend has matured since then. The bohemian archetype has transitioned from the bare footed gap yah hippy to a modern well travelled and worldly woman, who likes to get lost in the dessert but makes sure she always has her iPhone handy to Instagram it all/get her back to the luxury retreat she’s staying at in time for her spa appointment.

Summer in the Hamptons

Oh summer, you heady seductress you. You get me all excited, with promises of beaches and fancy cocktails with fruit splayed on the rim (which I always leave till last because it’s clearly the best bit, largely because the aforementioned cocktail looked a pretty colour but actually I don’t like gin/cointreau/whatever the hell is even in this so am struggling to drink it, but ordered it for the Instagram opportunity). But as I write this I’m snuggled in bed (in a jumper, because putting the heating on in July feels like heresy), nursing wet toes from venturing outside in sandals only to be brutally rained on.

I’m no beauty buff but I’ve gotten so many exciting new bits in recently I couldn’t resist sharing them with you all. My beauty regime is pretty much non-existent, consisting solely of those cucumber makeup remover wipes that are always 3 for 2 at Boots and that’s about it. But in an effort to be better at life I’m upping my skincare game with a few handy products from Prismologie and Sk:n. I’ve also recently joined the smoky eye club thanks to Urban Decay. Their naked range is aptly titled as I now feel just that without generous sweeps of eyeshadow to make me look fiiieerce.

Today’s post comes to you from a sofa in Clapham with Say Yes To The Dress playing in the background and a box of tissues keeping me company (stupid allergies). Not so glamorous. However I’m harking back to better times with a look shot on a recent getaway to beautiful Istanbul. I wore this outfit on our first night on the town spent exploring the city and finding our feet, getting to grips with our new home for the week.

Has anyone else been watching Fashion Bloggers? I’m addicted. It’s hardly top notch TV but as a blogger it’s interesting to watch some of the top names in blogging and see how they do what they do, and what you can achieve as a professional blogger.

My only problem with the show is that it’s a bit…glossy. The show skips from the glamorous photo shoot to the finished images, and themes of the episodes are things like ‘fashion week’ and ‘going on holiday’. What about ‘staying up all night editing a bunch of photos with weird lighting that aren’t really salvageable but there’s no time to reshoot’?
