Spotlight on Bodrum, Turkey

Let's be honest, planning a holiday can be more exciting than the actual trip, right? This is all too often the case, but once you start REALLY traveling, that all changes. “Really traveling” means finally satisfying your inner travel bug and actually seeing the world, instead of just daydreaming about it.

A special international trip taken was to Turkey, specifically Bodrum, and it exceeded all expectation. If you are seeking a vacation with relaxing days full of sun and sea that transition into exhilarating nightlife – put Bodrum on your books. To put it in terms that we New Yorkers understand, Bodrum is considered the Hamptons of Turkey. Home to the biggest marina in Turkey, Istanbul dwellers love to vacation here on their yachts and the Prince of Saudi Arabia is known to dock his as well. Bodrum is also known for its historical sites, farmers markets, fresh seafood, fresh figs and a climate that we who endure changing seasons might describe as perfect – it is always warm and THERE. IS. NO. WINTER.

How does one dress for a trip to Bodrum you ask? Well, given that the vibe is beachy and casual, a boho-chic look is always a good idea. A day-to-night, flowy, midi-length dress with a deep-v neckline and dolman sleeve is the perfect piece to throw on with flat leather sandals. Tie the whole look together with a pair of Aliyah Earrings – so lightweight, you’ll forget you’re wearing them and super budget-friendly at only $80!
