From the minute she graced my television screen earlier this year in "The City", I hated Olivia Palermo. A New York socialite working at DVF alongside the shows star Whitney Port (ex The Hills) it was immediatley evident that she was a complete Bitch and later on in the series, when she took full credit away from Whitney, over having chosen an outfit for an Elle cover, well, I just wanted to climb into the television and kill her!
I am not obessessed by her or her style, I can take her or leave her, but there is no getting away from the fact she always looks great. I just stumbled upon the above picture and there for all to see, is a prime example of effortless chic, one which can be adopted by any of us, at any age, we may need to adjust the length of the shorts a bit though! A white shirt is always listed as a wardrobe staple but I don't think I would have thought about wearing one with shorts nor would I have put such a large statement necklace with a shirt collar. If I didn't know better, I would think "The Sart" had taken this picture on the streets of Paris.
The bag deserves a post of its own, but don't want to depress myself.
With autumn coming, I may need to remember this picture for next summer, but for the coming season I think I will adopt this look with skinny jeans, so have decided I am definitely in the market for a white shirt - suggestions anyone? and for those of you who are fans of Olivia ( you know who you are), check out this fan site just incase its not you who started it!
