Romee Strijd shot by Daniel Jackson for TeenVogue May 2012
While I consider almost all TeenVogue editorials blog-worthy, the images in this month's story "The Life Aquatic," really stuck in my brain. Rising model Romee Strijd brought life to every page with her sun-kissed glow, piercing gray eyes, and bubbly expressions. I love the fun and completely on-trend surfer girl theme, which fashion director Alastair McKimm executed perfectly with slick neoprene, chunky scuba goggles, and bold, vibrant prints. These photos have ignited my inner beach chick: I'm desperate for tousled hair, sporty swimsuits, and a cheeky smile. Oh summer, please come faster!
