Anoushka Probyn Fashion Blog Florals in Istanbul

I wore this outfit on my recent getaway to Istanbul, hence the relatively demure hemline. We actually had to manoeuvre across a dual carriageway to shoot these pictures, but when I saw the flowers it seemed serendipitous that I was wearing florals, so I figured it was worth endangering both mine and Max’s lives for. You gotta do what you gotta do to get the shot, amiright?

When my boyfriend and I first got together, we had a discussion about things we considered to be deal breakers in a relationship. Most of them were pretty bog-standard, such as being a smoker or dressing badly (I waived that one for him and his uggers trainer collection!). Others were more niche, like being a Wolves fan (it’s a footie thing..). One of his most adamant deal breakers was that he wouldn’t date someone who didn’t like travel. This caught me by surprise. Who doesn’t like to travel?

According to him, plenty of gals. The idea seems so strange to me though, that you wouldn’t be willing to give up home comforts to experience something a little different and infinitely more exciting. Although it’s probably not the healthiest perspective (at least not on the ol’ bank balance..), I’ve come to think of the days I spend travelling as ‘real life’, whilst the obligatory bursts of work and uni are just a necessary inconvenience.

I know, it’s been forever. Worst blogger ever, officially. But in my defense, I’ve been gallivanting around India for the past month and it’s really hard to schedule a months worth of posts without losing the will to live/renouncing fashion forever.

I’m back now though with tales of elephants and hippy trousers and finding the meaning of life in an ashram in the hills (okay, that’s a slight exaggeration), as well as a months worth of grime and grit from the streets of Mumbai permanently ingrained into my skin. Still, India was uhh-mazing. I went with five of my bestest babes on a tour of the South, from monsoon swept Goa right down to my beautifully lush home state Kerala. I don’t have many pictures to share unfortunately as it was officially a blog-free holiday, however you can catch snippets on my instagram.

Classic Whites and Denim
Anoushka Probyn Fashion Blog - Gant and Dungarees

I’m a strong believer in the power of a good shirt. It’s a great layering tool and equally powerful on it’s own for a dash of class. I’m always up for a sartorial challenge so decided to try and smarten up my dungarees with a classic Gant white shirt underneath, and some sleek black accessories for a ‘Canadian tux goes to work’ look. Sometimes it feels refreshing to pair back my usually jazzy sequin-encrusted style and go for a more classic look (as far as dungarees and heels is classic, but give me time I’m new to the whole ‘tasteful’ style thing!).

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.
