What to Wear: Turkish-Inspired Summer Patterns

This week's dinner party is Turkish-themed. I've had such a good time reading back over our trip to Istanbul and Bodrum in preparation. All those gorgeous layers of Ottoman tiles and paint inspired an outfit with layers of soft patterns for the rest of summer.

Sundress - This Madewell sundress has a classic Turkish carnation design. On sale and only available in a couple sizes, so here's a backup dress just in case.
Sweater - This teal sweater jacket from Anthropologie adds a nice deep color and texture to the outfit.
Earrings - Hot pink and gold stud earrings for $28.
Necklace - The bright colors and tassel on this Betsy Johnson necklace are straight out of a Ottoman palace.
Bracelets - A fun set of $10 gold bangles.
Shoes - I can only find these cute studded blue ikat flats are only available in wide-width. Shoot!
Scarf - A light Turkish blue and white scarf.
Clutch - A $19 red ikat clutch from Cost Plus World Market.
Tea Glass - The traditional small tulip glasses for Turkish tea are easy to find on Amazon.
