Ok, so I admit, I have a new obsession with the wardrobe of the Duchess of Cambridge aka Kate Middleton – don’t worry, it won’t involve me flying to the UK to see her in person or anything anytime soon. Did you see her wardrobe for the recent royal visit to Canada and the US? Seriously, what I would give to be her for a day : ) I adored her use of navy and cream as her 2 most prominent color choices and the chic minimalism of each outfit was just perfect. She wore a lot of perfect dresses, but also did some outfits with jeans too, which are much easier for me to use as inspiration in my daily life.
I just love the simplicity of this outfit, but how pulled together and sophisticated she looks
Well, my version today is of course a little different as I don’t have her rockin’ tiny bod, but we work with what we have, you know?
I pulled out my Old Navy skinnies and my NY&Co ruffled blouse as a base (yes, this is the same blouse I wore in my last post, but isn’t it fun to remix things?) I tried tucking the blouse in so I could add the belt as she did, but it just didn’t look right on me unfortunately, so just left it untucked. Topped with my H&M navy blazer as that was the closest I had and there you go. I tried on black shoes, but in the end decided I preferred the camel color of these with the outfit. I also added more jewelry than Kate would wear, I like a little glamour! I normally wouldn’t add a big necklace with ruffles, but J inspired me to do it in her post “Ways to Wear a Statement Necklace“. Don’t be afraid to try it out!
Are you a fan of Kate Middleton’s wardrobe?
