Summer is here and Fashion-Mommy is back. I’ve been enjoying a couple of weeks in the sunshine taking a much-needed rest period, but in that time there have been a host of celebrity looks that have caught my eye. Summer always brings out the best in celeb style, with festival style, citrus shades and maxi dresses all out in force. And, of course, there are also days out at the races that can always inspire beautiful and unusual choices.
Here are some of the looks that are making summer sizzle.
Kate Middleton in Pied a Terre
With baby Cambridge due any day now, Kate seems to have slipped into some sort of Tudor seclusion, but before she started maternity leave Kate continued to wear last year’s Imperia wedges from Pied a Terre. You can now get your hands on new styles for summer 2013, with many now available at sale prices.

Cheska Hull Style spots including In Love with Fashion and Sharper Millinery
The ever stylish Cheska Hull continues to impress with her choices, whether at formal events or in holiday mood. A long time fan of cult celeb fave In Love with Fashion, this was the obvious brand of choice for her recent holiday style in Ibiza. I particularly loved the Refresher coloured striped maxi dress, such a pretty choice and great against a suntan.

Cheska wowed Royal Ascot wearing a stunning hat created by non other than Sally Harper Kenn of Sharper Millinery. Sally says “Bahlsen Biscuits commissioned me to create a hat based on their new Choco Leibniz Caramel. The hat is a sized version of the biscuit but perhaps not quite as tasty!” I disagree, this hat is super tasty, and Cheska looked amazing in it.
Rita Ora wears Pauls Boutique Kings of Custom
Described by Paul’s Boutique as “Going back to their Portobello roots by customising vintage denim, original army surplus jackets and one-off handbags. Paul’s Boutique’s online Custom Suite will offer you the full Kings Of Custom experience. Coming Soon”
Lucky Rita was able to get ahead of this trend early, adding a customised army jacket to her Glastonbury outfit.
Michelle Keegan wears Love
Michelle Keegan has shown some serious style chops recently, and this latest look is no exception. She has been chanelling the style of Bianca Jagger and Lauren Hutton in this nude crepe jumpsuit from In Love with Fashion. I think this is the perfect alternative to a maxi dress, having a slightly mannish feel that makes it super sexy.

Whitney Port wears Reiss
Whitney Port is another ever glamorous goddess, one who rarely seems to wear high street these days. But she bucked her own trend with this gorgeous red leather biker style jacket from Reiss. The jacket is no longer available, but Reiss currently have a great sale which includes a couple of great leather jackets well worth a look.

Lucy Mecklenburgh in Love
Now that Lydia Bright has moved onto pastures new, Lucy is emerging as the most stylish of the TOWIE ladies. She is another lady who is a fan of In Love With Fashion, and is a great advertisement for their summer playsuits. Cleverly, she doesn’t over accessorise, keeping jewellery to a minimum, but one item she does add is a pair of white stilletoes, showing that the Essex girl staple of the 1980s is now a must have item in your shoe wardrobe.

Chloe Sims in Celeb Boutique
And last, but not least, we have the lovely Chloe Sims. One of my favourite TOWIE ladies, Chloe looked amazing wearing a citrus dress from Celeb Boutique. Paired with a shok of red for added effect, I think this was a really fresh and striking look from Chloe.
