Istanbul Day 7: Taksim Square and Galata Tower

August 27, 2012


Hey lovelies, these are pictures from our last full day in Istanbul. We went to Taksim Square and went down the little shopping street, which to be honest wasn't that great, besides the fact that they had a Topshop (yay!). If you want to go shopping in Istanbul you should drive to a mall called Istinye Park, it is the best, it has everything from Zara to Nine West to Hermes.

Down the shopping street are two beautiful Christian churches, which are really worth the visit and at the end of the street, towards Galata Tower, there is a music street, it's called like that, because there are so many shops where you can buy instruments, and a lot of cute handcraft stores.

Then we went up the Galata tower, which I was very afraid of, since I am afraid of heights.. but the view was really spectacular, you could see nearly all of Istanbul from the top, it was truly breathtaking.

What do you think about my outfit?:)

PS: Sorry no German today as I am really in a hurry:)










What I wore: 
Forever 21 Shorts
Truly Madly Deeply Tee
Topshop Slippers
Givenchy Nightingale Bag 
Ray Ban Sunglasses

    1. Hey!:) Well I only discovered that the cross could maybe offend people when I was already back at the hotel, but nobody seemed to notice! Also with the shorts I had no problem at all, it was 40°C out and there are always a lot of tourists in Istanbul, so I /my shorts went totally unnoticed, because people there are really laid back and don't care to much about how people dress. Although if you are visiting mosques you should cover up out of respect!:)
      I hope you will have a great time in Istanbul!:)
