This weekends’ inspiration comes from Turkey. Meric is the creative director of Mr., co-founder of Apartment 11 and owner of an amazing blog, Maritsa. She has a unique sense of style and even though casual outfits are not that frequent in her blog, every time we see her wearing comfy and less formal looks, we love it!
We’ve been living in the same house for three years but we still have lots of decorating to do. We want to improve our little work corner, hang some wall art in the living room, add some nice touches to our bedroom… but what I really want to change is the entry way. Every time I come back from work and I see how empty that space is, my heart breaks a little. So this is going to be my Spring number one project! I want something functional but pretty, so I’ve been looking for inspiration and here there are some ideas that I might try, if you’ like to see.
Imagine a collection where French charm meets A Roman holiday. That is what Paul Ka has prepared for this season. A lovely mixture of 60s French riviera and Dolce far niente. Obviously I adore it.
The slow pace turns two years old today!!! Our blog is a toddler!!! We are really proud of this little space of ours. During this time we’ve learnt a lot and, what is more important, we’ve realized that we want and need to learn more, see more, write more, take more pictures… More, more, more!!!
We have big plans for The slow pace. We wanted it to grow slowly, carefully and happily. And that is happening every day. But we still have lots of work to do! We are determined to improve our content, our pictures and our browsing experience. We are preparing a very nice Summer travel series, we will be focusing a little bit more in decor and home entertainment, we will look for the coolest fashion brands and we will try to attend more courses and meetings to take The slow pace to another level.
We really hope to see you around every day and keep in touch via our social media!

Welcome to the last instalment of our Healthy Lunches series. Today we bring you an Italian lunch. These mixed roasted vegetables are delicious on their own, but if you paired them with this beautifully seasoned fish, the result is stunning.
Yesterday was our third German anniversary. We’ve been living in Germany for three years now. I just can’t believe it. We arrived in Bremen a really cold night after missing our connection at CDG airport. We were exhausted, angry and sad. My grandfather had had a heart attack the day before our departure so I was worried sick. I remember thinking: tomorrow everything would be better. (Scarlett O’Hara style).
Just a few words today but lots of pictures. Here you have some postcards from Copenhaguen, a city that we love. Can’t wait to be back!
The past weekend was amazing weather-wise. On Saturday we could visit the farmers market without our umbrellas and we even took a really long walk in the woods on Sunday morning. We know this is just an illusion of Spring ( that will arrive… eventually), but we can’t help but dreaming about warmer nights, longer days and sipping drinks al fresco. And for that you need new shoes. Everybody knows that.
This season we would love to wear metallic silver shoes. They go with absolutely everything and they add a nice sparkle even to your more casual outfits.
1. Leather pumps by Zara. These are extra uncomfortable. I’m sure about that. But they would be the perfect addition to your working wardrobe this Spring.
2, 3 & 4. JCrew always gets it right. Even more in the shoe department. I love these three pairs. I couldn’t choose just one. Maybe number 3?
5. Cute shoes for cute dresses by Asos. I think Alexa Chung would love these.
6. And how cool are these loafers?
Let’s start the week with flavour. This is our go to menu when we want something really tasty and we are really hungry. These recipes together are delicious and will keep you full until dinner.
