5 Reasons I Like June

Jun 7, 2012
1. It's Espadrille Season!
Did you know that espadrilles originally come from the Basque country in Spain where they have been handcrafted for over a century? Did you also know that they became popular oversea around 1948 when Lauren Bacall wore them in the movie Key Largo? The lovely model above is from Aldo.

2. Strawberries
Strawberry shortcake is very nice but I prefer to eat my strawberries French style, I prefer fraises au sucre.

Here is my simple recipe:
I dice about 2 pints of strawberries, I add a spoonful of sugar and a tad of lemon juice and lemon zest. I like to serve them in tall glasses and when I am feeling daring, I sometimes add a bit of whipped cream (or crème chantilly) on top. Quite refreshing!

3. Fedora
I'm a hat kind-a-girl. When it gets warmer outside, I can't wait to put on my straw fedora hat. It's so stylish, flirty and easy to wear. I like the presence and the slightly masculine edge it brings to any look. A summer staple! Here is Jessica Alba wearing a beautiful cream one.

4. Capri pants
I have always loved capri pants. I think that they are simply the perfect summer pants. When done right, they can be chic and sophisticated. No wonder Audrey Hepburn was already a fan back then.

In terms of color, black ones are elegant and ladylike but colorful capri are much more modern and definitively cooler!

5. Ice cream of course!
It ain't summer without ice cream.
