She looks like a tourist

The day before we left Istanbul, we visited the Topkapi palace and I dressed absolutely like a tourist. This means I combined most things people carry for an entire holiday in one outfit.

Straw hat, check.
Hi-low maxi dress, check.
sandals, check.
Sunglasses, check.





It was a very warm day and I was glad that I wore this high-low summery maxi dress.  I wore the scarf to add a dash of colour to the cream coloured dress. 




I was also greatful to be wearing a hat as it was really hot and and the sun was really direct. 




The palace looked absolutely glorious and the interiors were beautiful.






The stained glasses in the queen's room brought the most beautiful blend of colours and light in the room. 



The intricate detail in the pattern on the walls was mesmersing as well.






I did a little tourist like posing, and throughly enjoyed it!

Even through the window grill, the city outside looked beautiful.

The Bosphorus although calm, made big ferry boats look like tiny fishing boats.






After a lot of walking through the palace, we had lunch at Konyali Restaurant at the palace and had the best view of the Bosphorus.




I'm glad we visited the palace on the last day, because you know what they say, save the best for last!
