Ideal Closet

When I travel I like to wear something comfy, usually it's my favourite pair of jeans, sweater and boots or trainers. Typical I know. This outfit today is what i would wear for a longer plane trip, comfortable joggers, soft but classy, and gold trainers, because who can go wrong with gold, right?

I'm signing off early this week. I'm spending some days in my mom's village in Greece with family, follow me on Instagram if you want to follow along. Happy Easter to those who celebrate and happy long weekend to those who don't. See you next week.

An apartment in Copenhagen

Apparently it took 3 men to carry this long oak table to this Copenhagen house and for about a year the owners heard the wood crack. What really caught my eye here is the fantastic book installation, colourful and joyful and full of knowledge. This home has some many elements that make it attractive, if I had to pick it would probably be the mix of different elements and concepts, I love how new and old are seemingly intermixed and how it all blends harmoniously. And that headboard is incredibly gorgeous!

Recipe: Pink smoothie

This is BY FAR the easiest recipe I have posted so far, but it's also one that I have been making and drinking for many years and one that I really like. It's a fruit juice with only three ingredients, sorry all but this is no green juice, only yummy sugar full fruit (I know shame on me, but if you want to take fruit somehow, your 5-a-day, this is a great way!)

(makes juice for 2)

2 bananas
Juice of 2 oranges
5 strawberries
Ice cubes


Juice your oranges.
Peel and cute your bananas, cut your strawberries in half and place everything in your blender. If your blender is powerful enough place your ice cubes in it and blend. Serve with a straw. That easy!
I'm sure you can add some seeds, or protein, or something healthy like that, I don't and it's yummy which I like. But feel free to add and let me know what it tastes like.

Weekend Wear

I love biker boots, I have included many of them in my Ideal Closet posts for a while now. I had a cheap pair I bought two winters ago from Topshop and wore to death, well they were cheap for a reason, they only lasted that one winter I bought, this means that this winter I didn't have biker boots. I put off buying a new pair for months but finally and after seeing this Zara ones all winter long in store and on my friend's feet I finally succumbed. They are not expensive either (which means once again I ended up buying cheap boots which annoys me a bit but these are a lot more sturdy and well made so I hope they last longer!). Anyway, this is definitely an in-between outfit with fave Boden stripes and my new super beloved bag.

It's all about a monkey

and more specifically the Kay Bojesen little wooden monkey that can hang anywhere for you. This little toy was designed by Kay Bojesen in 1951 and is a staple of Scandinavian design. He looks cool and chic anywhere you put him and is very well behaved.
In one of the pictures below you can see this little one with its creator Kay Bojesen who was an apprentice of another big master, Georg Jensen (I love this tray of his very very much). You can read more about his story and his creations here. Any of the members of his wooden family would make a fantastic gift for young and old alike.

Ideal Closet

Another Thursday and another Ideal Closet with my favourite combo: Denim, cool top and trainers! You must see it coming I'm sure, but I love this type of outfits. They are of course what I tend to wear too on a daily basis and one that I think flatters most types of bodies using a few tricks. The classic Converse are a must in any closet and a pair of shoes that every girl should own, they are great with jeans and shorts and look super cute with skirts and girly dresses too. I know there are many trainers out there but if you have to buy a pair, consider these ones!
