Editorial: Et Dieu Crea la Soleil (And God Created the Sun)

I know it must seem like I cover Kate Moss a lot on this blog, but I can’t help that she’s my favorite! Thankfully, Vogue Paris (namely Carine Roitfeld) loves her just as much as I do. Captured by Mario Sorrenti and styled by the fab Emmanuelle Alt (can you a ask for a better pairing?), Kate Moss lounges pool side for the magazine’s June/July issue. Simply put, she’s stunning. And at 36 years old, the girl still knows how to rock a cover (this marks Kate’s 31st cover for Vogue). Check out the rest of the pictures of this extradoniary editorial – talk about fun in the sun!

Summer Essential: White Denim

One of our wonderful readers requested a post on white denim, so here it is! When the summer months hit white jeans are without a doubt a go-to item in my wardrobe. But every summer, without fail, I struggle to find the perfect pair. (After a month of searching I finally found mine: Vince Skinnies). After doing some research online, here are a few of my white denim picks:

Luella and June Tip: 
While I adore my white denim, keeping the clean is another story. Here are a few ideas to keep your whites looking their whitest
1. Check the label. The washing instructions are there for a reason. Use them. 
2. Avoid washing your jeans in super hot water (or be prepared for your jeans to have shrunk enough to fit a 10-year-old). 
3. The Clorox Bleach Pen can be your best friend. If you happen to catch a stain grab your bleach pen (the sooner the better) and gently rub it on the stain. Let your jeans sit for about 25 minutes and then throw them in the wash.

Passport: Waikiki

With the arrival of summer (and the hot temperatures that come with it) all I can think about is a trip to the beach. Right now I’ve got Waikiki on my mind! If you’re heading there (or any beach at all!) here are a few items to add to your packing list. Aloha!
