The Apartment | Copenhagen

I had to drag myself out of The Apartment very reluctantly. These pictures should hopefully show you why. The Apartment is an interior showroom set in an 18th Century apartment in Copenhagen and is always changing to highlight new pieces. I couldn't get over how beautifully the bold colors went together, and it completely inspired me to try to add more color into my own place. The founders, Tina Seidenfaden Busck and Pernille Hornhaver, have such great eyes and taste. I'm pretty sure I audibly gasped when I first stepped in. Many thanks to Ida Laerke (who I felt like I have known forever via Instagram and finally got to meet in person!) for bringing me here.

Hotel Okura

Stepping into the iconic Hotel Okura feels a bit like stepping back in time, to 1960s Tokyo that is. An absolute gem for the design-obsessed and diplomats alike, the hotel's main wing is set for demolition and reconstruction this summer (which has been met with much objection, of course). I'm so glad I had a chance on my February Tokyo trip to see the original design before construction started.

Ode to a white tee

I may be channeling Rachel Green circa 1995 here, but I couldn't help but be drawn to (like, all of) Theory's new pieces this season. I'm actually glad crop tops are so abundant right now because they help to offset my long torso and short legs (however, not so good for the ice cream binge-r in me if I have to bare my midriff, ooof). I have not-ideal proportions – which I always try to hide via my camera angles/crops – so anything that can shorten my torso is great in my books. Enter this white tee. Wearable with just about anything. Also comes in black and this terribly fun gingham print (hello).
