But here's the rub: without her long, lean figure and her stunning face, framed by that glorious hair of hers, I don't know that the effect would be quite the same on me.
If I was slim and gorgeous, a long drink of glamorous water, this is how I would dress:
Apparently, there are Kate-watchers who keep track of the number of times she wears particular colors. (Some of us need to get a life, I guess!)
I like that Kate Middleton wears simple, closed-toe pumps (my favorite sort of dress shoe). I like that she wears pantyhose (they don't seem to be "in" anymore, but I wouldn't be caught dead without them). I also like that she recycles wardrobe pieces and is okay with being photographed in them more than once.
I absolutely love coats, and would be happy if they could be worn pretty much year-round. Not that I want to live in a frozen tundra or anything--but even the need for a light jacket in the summer would be my preference (though where I live, there are definitely some months that are too warm for any sort of outerwear).
Some of the most beloved articles of clothing in my wardrobe are coats and jackets. And I am always tempted to buy new ones, even though I certainly don't "need" them. A couple of months ago, I picked up this hot pink beauty for a fraction of its regular price at the Talbot's after-season sale.
I blogged about this coat in a What I Wore Sunday post called "In the Pink (and Spreading Happiness)!" You don't think Kate might have stumbled upon that post, do you? Because, well...is she copying me?
