Katy layered a white crop top under her one-piece and finished off the look with a pair of white leather mules.
The Idol judge accessorized her outfit with dangly silver earrings and stacked bangles.
She also posted images of her bow-tie mule designs, which come in nude, blue, green and black.
Katy posted the images on Instagram on Tuesday and captioned them, “Jump(suit) into summer,” adding a sunshine emoji.
Her post comes hours after sources claimed she is ready to leave American Idol after feeling betrayed by producers and receiving fan backlash.
Katy, who has been a judge of the hit competition singing series for the past six years, reportedly felt “thrown under the bus” by executives.
The Teenage Dream singer has faced a range of criticism this season and reached her breaking point after receiving backlash from audience members and viewers.
“Katy feels like [the producers] threw her under the bus,” sources revealed to DailyMail.
They continued: “Katy became aware of the harsh criticism. Getting booed really upset her. She was trying to stay in her lane, do her job and go home.
“She went into it thinking she was going to foster young talent. For her good intentions to be misinterpreted it was not what she wanted.
“She has accomplished so much in her career and is now being looked at as a nasty reality show judge.
“Katy’s wanted out for some time now, but this season was way too much for her to handle.”
The sources also said no paycheck amount could convince the pop star to stay after what she believes the show has now done to her legacy.
The Firework hitmaker also hinted at leaving the show in another interview after the Season 21 finale aired.
“I think we have to talk about it tonight. I think we’re all gonna talk about it tonight,” Katy told Extra when asked if she would return to her judges’ seat next season.
“I love my job, and I love what I do. I know that I miss going out into the world and doing what those kids get to do.
“I’m getting a little FOMO after all these years because it’s been quite a minute,” she confessed.
But fans might just have to see what’s to come for the performer as her fate on the show remains unknown.
“I hope so. We’ll see. I’m just so proud of everything we’ve been able to do thus far,” Katy said.
One fan pointed out the Teenage Dream singer’s remarks on an online thread and thought she hinted that she was leaving the show.
They wrote, in part: “It was interesting when they asked her last year she was like I definitely hope so. This year she definitely more iffy.”
And a second agreed, noting: “Katy is worth over $300million and doesn’t need the job.”
Idol fans have been vocal about wanting other stars to replace Katy as a judge, including Alanis Morissette who filled in for her when she was performing in the coronation concert.
Viewers have been adamant about the showrunners improving the reality singing competition and have aired the criticism over social media.
