What's hot: LouLou ~ June

Can you believe it? The June issue of LouLou is already here and while they usually skip over some of the more boring months (sorry May), the June issue means business. Full blown summer that is!

I've scanned a few pages to share with you...this issue features an addictive array of summer fashions along with a sneak peak at the new beauty items to hit the shelves. The whole mood and theme of June's edition just makes me want to dance. Let's dive in then shall we?

Hmmmhmmm yummy, while I'm usually an extremest when it comes to makeup (either I'm wearing a full face or nothing at all) there are the few times where a little something simple will look so sweet with a carefree floral dress. Big lashes and juicy strawberry lips are super fresh together!

This single page in June's issue really blue my mind and I knew that it had to be part of this post (and that's not just an excuse to use my pun either). Blues and turquoise shades return every summer because they remind us of tropical islands and the Greek shores of Athens. Pick something with a little shimmer to make your eyes sparkle or try a nail polish if you are shy.

The flowers are in full bloom, not just in the garden but also...on your legs? I hope this trend is here to for a while because I have yet to find the perfect pair of floral jeans...wait for me! I always loved the look of a breezy floral tank paired with simple jeans but why not reverse the colours and try a solid top with flowers on the bottom.

I absolutely need to find something like these beautiful necklaces...they are so amazingly delicate yet no one will pass these by without noticing. My personal taste in jewelery is rather simplistic and this coral necklace strikes the perfect combination between being too simple and being too much.

How can one think about summer with out thinking about Pucci? The iconic fashion house's colours always bring images of sailing on a luxury yacht...(that I may hopefully do some day). Pairing up with Guerlain, they made some beautiful items together. NARS addicts, don't forget this summer's NARS and Thakoon collection full of bright cheery shades for your fingers and toes.

Here's something new that I was excited to see...nude sunglasses are making a hit this summer. There is something effortless glamorous about them and if you find the right pair you can even bring them into fall for the next season.

I believe this is a newer segment to LouLou and one that I'm very excited about, Claude (LouLou's style editor) shares wearable but oh so fabulous coordinates for all your summer dates. It's a heafty spread and I loved something about every single outfit. This is truly where LouLou stands out as being approachable yet stylish.

But of course no summer issue post would be complete without a little swim suit talk. I usually skip over them because (quite unfortunately) I don't have anywhere to wear my swimsuit to. Vancouver is too far up north for any fabulously sexy beaches so thus I shall keep on dreaming...


You should be able to find this issue of LouLou up until the end of June.

  1. Thank you for taking the time to scan some of the pages for us! I liked the sunglasses page because I was just watching Breakfast at Tiffany's and couldn't help noticing how Audrey Hepburn wears big sunglasses in every other scene - even when reading a book indoors! :)
