Summer Kind Of Wonderful

All the bad weather, the rain, the wind and the cold days, ended up being a little bit useful considering the fact that by not going out as often as I wished, I managed to eventually catch up on some of my favorite indoor activities. With summer officially starting yesterday, I could not help but dream about the warm weather, the sun and the comfortable, easy and light clothes waiting patiently to be worn.

One of my favorite ways to relax, while also doing some much needed “research”, is by browsing tens of celebrity pictures, caught during their off-hours; the perfect way to spot the trends, get lots of inspiration and find new favorites. I could do it for hours !

In the last couple of days, I came across with three different looks that celebrities rocked in May and I thought I’d share my personal thoughts on them, with all of you. I plan on doing this more often!

Oteea's-PicksFor months now, I have been admiring Ali Larter’s new style, that’s so clean, so chic and so effortless. I can’t wait to pair my new white shorts with an oxford style shirt – something that is yet missing in my wardrobe. I love how Ali accessorized with just a bright colored necklace, sand heels/ bag and cool sunnies. Her happiness, much like her stylish look, is contagious

Yes, as previously mentioned, I’m all for white this summer ! And Eva Longoria proves how this is a great choice, looking picture perfect in her white Victoria Beckham Collection mini-dress. I’m already thinking of the many more ways I could style that kind of a simple, yet effective dress. Good thing Eva’s accessories never let down – a brown Hermes bag, a pair of edgy Giuseppe Zanotti Women’s E10191 Open-Toe Ankle Boots and a pair of Ray Ban sunglasses is all it takes to look flawless on a sunny day.

If I could, I would. I would definitely build my new style based on retro-chic inspired pieces only – femininity at its best. Wanna guess who inspires me? Of course it’s Taylor Swift, can you think of a more girlier-girl than her? A loose white shirt and a pair of denim shorts, both by Joe’s, seem like the comfortable way to take on the streets on a hot summer day. Taylor completed her look with Elizabeth and James Benedict sunglasses, a Coach purse and ballet flats. The red lipstick and blue nails look great too.

See you soon, I’m off adding the oxford style shirt to my shopping wish-list ! XO

Victoria Justice – 2012 Kids’ Choice Awards

Victoria Justice attended the 2012 Kids’ Choice Awards wearing one of my favorite colors this season, and one of my favorite looks of the award ceremony that took place in L.A., yesterday afternoon.

Victoria-Justice---Elizabeth-and-James

The Victorious young actress opted to wear a long sleeve Elizabeth and James Spring Jim blazer in a fresh tiger lily shade, which she paired with Elizabeth and James Colby tailored shorts with side pockets.

A delicate white shirt with a bow neck detail and the Valentino Crystal Embellished booties, enhanced the beauty of this shorts suit (one of the hot trends of the season).

Straightened hair, minimal jewelry and flawless make up, finished up the lovely look.

I think her appearance was incredible beautiful !
