Monochromatic Monday :: White Hot

By Jenn Rose Smith

Summer white inspiration board | Camille Styles

Last week I came discovered the work of Josep Moncada Juaneda via pinterest and fell hard for his summery paintings (in particular the one pictured top left here.) It just really captures the wonderful quietness of summer for me, as well as the intense heat. White has always been my favorite color to wear — and it feels especially right at the hottest point of the year. Right now I’m dreaming of sipping something cold while wearing this amazing white shirtdress from Alexander McQueen. And I wouldn’t mind killing a few hot weeks in the gorgeous all-white Palm Beach home of author Kelly Kline. What about you? Do you share my love for white clothing and interiors? Or are they too impractical to keep clean?  Let us know in the comments!
