Kate's Honeymoon Look

Sorry for the silence this past week. My husband is trying to launch his photography business here in Mississippi and we have had several events and jobs this past week. If you are interested, check out his artwork and portait work with the links in this sentence.

One more Kate Middleton post and then I am done with royal, I promise! I guess I should start calling her the Duchess of Cambridge now, huh? This look is what Kate wore the morning after her wedding leaving Buckingham Palace. This look is so simple and chic and stylish, I just had to try my hand at re-creating it.

Here is my interpretation: (Click on the image for a larger and more detailed view.)

Run-Down:
Dress: Mod Cloth, Frozen Lake Dress, $54.99
Sweater: Macy’s Charter Club Cardigan Long Sleeve, Black, on sale for $29.99
Belt: New York and Company, Skinny Braid Belt, on sale for $9.97
Shoes: Bandolino, Dyani Espadrille in Black, $69 via Piperlime
Total: $163.95

This is another lovely blue look from Kate. This dusty blue offset with black neutrals looks so simple but chic. This little dress from ModCloth is inexpensive and has the same color blue with pleats and a modest neckline, just like Kate's dress. Instead of a black jacket, this structure cardigan with a similar neckline suffices. The belt is simple and cheap too and makes the entire look hang together. Kate's wedge espadrille is matched by this modestly priced one from Bandolino. What an awesome casual outfit!

Kate seems to be becoming a new paragon of modest, elegant style. It's about time we had a style icon that shows us that modest doesn't have to equal dowdy!
