Floral Shorts and Oxfords

These are my new favorite shorts…ok I may say that a few times this summer…but I LOVE the print on them. Plus they are so comfortable and not too short! I was thinking it would be hard to match them with things, but they have so many colors in them that you can get away with almost anything.

Also…I LOVE summer! I’m so happy that I can finally lay out on weekends and go on hikes and have bbqs, etc. I am a total summer and water girl. Yay! Bring on tees and shorts!

2013 Billboard Music Awards

The Billboards…you get a mix of everything…I have Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj on my best dressed so you know something has got to be a little bit weird. Just kidding…it just shows that you never know what’s gonna happen at these awards shows. Enjoy!

Celine Dion: O, Celine…so classy.Celine-Dion-2013-Billboard-Music-Awards--27-560x757

Shania Twain: Well this is a lot better than what she’s been wearing. Very pretty.371477-canadian-country-singer-shania-twain-arrives-at-the-billboard-music-aw

Kacey Musgraves: She looks good…the dress is ok, but I do kinda like her shoes.2013+Billboard+Music+Awards+Arrivals+2L8ZBWyoxOWl

Jennifer Lopez: Not my all time favorite dress, but she looks gorg. I just think I don’t like the see-through bottom and low neckline. It’s too much going on, esp since it’s gold.gallery_jennifer-lopez-2013-billboard-music-awardsEmmy Rossum: It looks a tiny bit gothic, but I kind love it and it’s very different for her. It gives her body an amazing shape.Emmy Rossum Billboard

Chloe Grace Mortez: It’s not necessarily my favorite color, but it makes her look young and I love her simple hair and makeup.Chloe Moretz Billboard

Kelly Rowland: I almost put her on my best dress, but I don’t totally love the neckline. She looks really good on this dress though.kelly-rowland-dress-billboard-music-awards-2013

WORSTS

Kesha: She actually looks pretty good for her, because the dress is WAY toned down compared to her usual outfits, but the slit is soooo bad. And it’s like a dressy dress with espadrilles? what?kesha-billboard-music-awards-2013

Carly Rae Jepsen: This is not ok…I HATE that you can see her belly button. It almost makes her look chubby and she isn’t at all. I hate the little tulle things hanging down and the pattern on the dress. Also the shoes are ugly.Carly+Rae+Jepsen+2013+Billboard+Music+Awards+9UpLm6kPujFx

Madonna: She is just way to much lately. She needs to realize that she’s old and her outfits are ridicuous.9-getty-billboard-music-awards-2013-madonna-420x630-jpg_074756

Alyssa Milano: I don’t really even know what to say about this? the dress isn’t cute and then she put these see-through pants on or something…not ok.alyssa_milano_red_carpet_arrival_2013_billboard_awards_photo_18pj38u-18pj3aa

Jenny McCarthy: yeah…yeah…yeah she has a great body, but you can show it off in a way better outfit than this. I HATE this skirt. This looks like she is a decade or two behind. Her makeup is amazing though.jenny_mccarthy_red_carpet_arrival_2013_billboard_awards_photo_18pj38v-18pj3b5

Jennifer Morrison: She’s pretty much wearing lingerie…I’m not really sure what else to say. This was a dumb idea.gallery_jennifer-morrison-2013-billboard-music-awards

Avril Lavinge: The shoes are horrible and the dress doesn’t even fit her. Plus she needs to cut her hair or something.Avril+Lavigne+Arrivals+Billboard+Music+Awards+DxwVnz4IT_El

BESTS

Nicki Minaj: Nicki is looking hot in red! She’s toned down her look a little lately and she looks amazing!Nicki Minaj Billboard

Miley Cyrus: I actually really like this. She has an amazing body right now and I love the lace and patterns.2013 Billboard Music Awards - Arrivals

Kimberly Perry (from The Band Perry): She looks absolutely gorgeous here. I love that the dress is soft and flowing. For a while she was a little bit crazy and not quite put together.Kimberly Perry Billboard

Taylor Swift: Taylor always looks fab. She’s always so put together! I love that she did a different color this time though.

Taylor Swift Billboard

Hayden Panettiere: Classy and gorgeous! Love it!HaydenPanettiere-jpg_234117

Selena Gomez: I love that she went for young and fun. This is my favorite look from the night. Sometimes she tries to go a little too old for her, but this is fabulous! Selena Gomez Billboardselena-gomez-billboard-music-awards-2013-red-carpet
