Talking summer with Olivia Culpo: From cocktails to fashion

It's officially May, which means our countdown to summer has started -- And we're calling upon Olivia Culpo to get us geared up for the new season.

With the change in weather comes a cool new wardrobe and updated cocktails to prepare for the sun. From Bacardi Lime and watermelon to Olivia Culpo's power outfit, check out our chat below to find out how the 26-year-old model and actress is getting ready for summer.

Go-to summer cocktail?: "Usually in the summer, since it's watermelon season, I make a drink using a watermelon. I'll cut out a watermelon and use it as a punch bowl. This summer there's a drink called the Bacardi Lime Cooler -- it's with soda water, watermelon, simple syrup and it's so easy to do. It's just really refreshing and light. I'm definitely making that and putting it in a watermelon."

Summer style:  "I'm seeing a ton of snake skin and I've been wearing a ton of it. It doesn't have to be leather or what not, it's just the print that I'm seeing everywhere."

Go-to power outfit? "I feel the most confident honestly in a jumpsuit. First of all, it's so easy to put together. You don't have to have to think about what shirt or what top, it just goes. For me, that's really easy and I think it's also more practical than a dress. You can really get around in them [jumpsuits] and walk . Especially if it's made out of cotton -- it's like wearing sweatpants or loungewear. You can dress it up or dress it down."

Style evolution: "For me my style changes every single day. It's generally based off of my mood -- If I'm feeling lazy I'll probably wear something that is dark or something that blends it. If I'm feeling spunky I'll do something super bright. For me, what I wear is a reflection of who I am and that changes for sure on daily basis on terms of how I'm feeling. I think it's definitely changed."
