Styling The Embroidered Skirt

Places, Style

So, I was dying to wear this embroidered skirt since I had my eyes on it. When my hubby and I decided to spend the day in Venice (and it was an unusually sunny day after all the rain showers during past weeks), it was the perfect opportunity finally to wear it. I know that there are a lot of brands that carry very similar styles, but I love this one better because of the colors of the embroidery, so bright and fun!

Show Some Shoulder with Floral Tops!

Places, Style

Lido Marina Village in Newport Beach is one of my favorite spots and I love going there for a bite or coffee or just to hang out. Even though it is still under construction and new places are opening up, the atmosphere and the architecture just draw you in. It is also one of my fave spots to have a photoshoot with all white background and nice greens.

Welcome to Coffee Cups and Roses!

Hello! I am so happy and excited to launch my blog Coffee Cups and Roses! The name comes from my infatuation with reading fortunes from Turkish coffee cups and my love for roses. Well, a part of my name means “rose” in Turkish, there’s that, too.

Apart from blogging, I am a PhD candidate in Comparative Literature. I enjoy reading and writing very much and part of my love for blogging comes from that. We love traveling to new places and meeting new people, that’s why I would like to share our travel diaries with you guys and give travel advice. I will also be sharing styling ideas for your closet and home and reviews of new places in town! (this might be related to coffee:)

And I would love to keep in touch and hear from you! Hope you will follow along in this new adventure of mine!

Looking forward to your comments, questions and ideas!

Hi friends!

It feels sooo good to be back! I finally updated my blog, which is shiny and brand new! Due to the rainy weekend, my first post is about wearing camel and black on repeat! I don’t know, I can’t help it! Does it happen to you too when you are just staring at your closet and you can find nothing but black sweaters or T-shirts?

Well, today has been one of those days, not just because of me, but because of rainy weather in California we’re getting so often lately! I blame it on the rain! continue reading
