Style to Admire: Kate Middleton

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5

 

As the Duchess of Cambridge, dressing well is of the upmost importance. However, not only does Kate Middleton dress well, she does it with a style that is uniquely her own.

Since her engagement to Prince William, the world has seen Kate favoring more classic silhouettes while giving them a more modern feel with a variety of pattern, color, fabric, and texture. I love the A-line dress silhouette that she favors, as it’s not only a classic shape but also one that is universally flattering (aka a style that many of us can copy while trying to look as fab as her!). With it being a classic shape, it can also easily be incorporated into any sort of lovely dress, whether it’s one of a fun and trending color (a la the Marigold Jenny Packham dress) or one that is a more classically patterned dress (a la the polka dot Dolce & Gabbana Dress).

It is also refreshing to see someone with a title embrace trends like the average woman. Floral prints that err on the more natural side have been quite popular this year and the Erdem dress that was worn for the Germany/Poland Royal tour is so lovely. The real start of the show, though, when it came to the fashions seen form the Royal tour had to be the Alexander McQueen red off the shoulder dress. I know many women have scoured the internet for something similar while hoping to find one that is lesser expensive.

What do you think of her style? Check out more Style to Admire posts here

Have a lovely weekend!

Recently, I stumbled upon this amazing jewelry line out of Fort Worth that is called Everlasting Joy Jewelry. All of the items that they sell are not only super cute and versatile but handmade and support the fight against trafficking and slavery.

So not only are you looking good but you’re also doing good, too. Win win y’all! I myself am even getting these stud earrings and these super cute hoops (as seen on my Instagram).

What other lines are you all fond of that also benefit a particular cause?

Five Must-Have Gingham Pieces to Add to Your Wardrobe

5 Must Have Gingham Pieces

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5

When I think of gingham I think of pictures of Audrey Hepburn in a blouse and gingham crops riding a bicycle or Brigette Bardot in a gingham dress. Having grown up with a love of 50’s and 60’s icons, I have always had a sweet spot for this pattern.

However, as much of a fan I am of the classics, I am loving the fresh and updated take on gingham that many people are embracing. I even recently purchased this MINKPINK dress, which combines this classic pattern with ruffles and the oh so flirty one shoulder trend. I’m also loving this cold shoulder Amanda Uprichard dress.

How are y’all embracing gingham this spring/summer?

Tassel Accessories for $25 Or Less

Tassel Accessories for 25 and Less

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 

Growing up in the Southwest, tassels and fringe have always been that little something extra to add to a piece. I’d know, too, when I was back home after a trip once I’d see someone wearing a jacket or a shirt or a pair of boots with some fringe adorning them. It honestly is just something that has always seemed to be a part of that quintessential Southwestern flair when it comes to fashion.

Lately, though, I’ve been seeing it on everyone and everywhere.  From fringe jeans, tops, sarongs, handbags, sandals, necklaces, earrings, and more. It’s crazy to think how something so commonplace for one person becomes all the rage for another due to a “trend”, but that’s fashion for you.

 I will have to say, this is one trend I will wholeheartedly get behind. (Sorry cold shoulder, still warming up to you. *pun intended*)

How are y’all embracing the tassel trend?

Lovin’ Right Now: Victoria Beckham for Target Collection

 

The Victoria Beckham for Target collection aims to please and it will surely accomplish do just that when it becomes available on April 9th. I mean, not only are the majority of pieces from the collection under $50 but it also offers fashionable pieces for those who are plus size (which is a rarity all on its own).

I personally am already coveting the collared black dress (it has rabbits on the collar–how cute!), the gingham peplum top, and the oversized daisy print peplum top.

What are some of y’all’s favorites?

Lovin’ Right Now: H&M’s Autumn Collection Ad

 

H&M’s latest ad for their Autumn Collection is AMAZING.

Not only does it include women of all ages (props to Hutton for continuing to look gorgeous) but women of all sizes, color, hair style, and orientation. I also love having a cover of Tom Jones’ iconic song “She’s a Lady” playing in the background, giving the classic a modern take on what it is to be a “lady”.

Kudos, H&M. Kudos.
