As promised my answers to the questions from the Classic Style book…
Always in your fridge
Parmesan cheese, milk or oat milk, Heinz ketchup, dijon mustard, Bonne Maman jam ( the jar makes me happy) and Hellman´s mayonnaise, veggies
Favourite Restaurant and dish you order on the menu
Depends on the country. In Helsinki Strindberg and the Salmon with a poached egg, in New York maybe Cipriani´s and their sublime pasta pesto, in Paris I love Ralph´s but my best memories and favourite dish are still from L´avenue and their pasta arrabbiata ( I can´t count the times I ate it). I love a great pasta any time. And Club 55 in Saint Tropez with great friends, steak tartar, pommes frites, crispy green salad and a cold rosé.
Quick description of your overall look
Well ironed button down shirt, high waisted pants, loafers or white tennis shoes
Can´t cook without
Great olive oil and salt
What you bring home in your suitcase when travelling abroad
Most likely something from a grocery store that has a beautiful package
Skill you dream of mastering
Crocheting, sailing, being the best mom to my girls
Hermés Cape Cod wrap around
Simple, natural, enhancing rather than changing, sometimes red lips
Vanilla, pistachio, licorice, salted caramel ( can´t choose just one because it depends on the mood and situation and brand)
Makes you feel cozy
Cuddling in my husbands arms. Tucking my kids to bed and reading bed time stories under their duvets. Falling asleep to the sound of rain or waves.
Navy blue, white, beige, grey, baby blue, light pink
Cappuccino, lightly sparkling water with lemon, champagne or wine or a gin and tonic from cocktails.
I love city trips with one on one time with family like my girls, husband or my mom. I love traveling with a group of friends and some of my favourite holiday memories are from trips to the south of France on a friends yacht and I love going ski-ing with friends & their kids or somewhere hot with just our family. So I´m basically all over the place with this answer.
Your peaceful escape
The island or anywhere alone with my husband
Chocolate and liquorice
On your nightstand
Flowers, scented candle, books, hand cream and framed photos
Coffee first and later on weekdays fruit or a green smoothie, natural yoghurt with berries & granola. On weekends I love omelettes or croissants or even pancakes.
Great olive oil, lemon, fresh herbs & parmesan, Maldon salt and freshly ground pepper.
Items packed in your suitcase-always
Pretty underpinnings, warm scarf for changing weather, my beauty bag and if I´m not on a work trip then heels and a little black dress because you never know. Never my jewellery, mom taught me to always put those in hand luggage.
Most worn out shoes
I buy a new pair of white Superga and Converse sneakers every summer and wear them out ( and wash them quite frequently as I love them white). They just look better when not too shabby. Also running shoes.
Muji 0,5 black ink.
Favourite fabric pattern
Stripes & Toile
Anything by Nancy Meyers
