Kate Middleton Inspired Style

At the request of my bestie/blog partner, I am tackling Kate Middleton’s style today. I truly believe that this Princess/someday Queen is a style star in the making. She has a classic look that will most definitely stand the test of time.

One of my favorite aspects of her style is her heavy use of riding boots. As the mama to a bouncin’ off the walls toddler, riding boots are a vital piece in my wardrobe. Another staple of Kate’s wardrobe seems to be the blazer. Paired together, a fitted blazer and riding boots evoke a chic , yet approachable look. Chic, yet seemingly approachable describes Kate to a tee…don’t you think?

Here’s a little set I put together that was inspired by Ms. Middleton. What do you think? Will you be taking fashion cues from William’s lady love?

    Very nice. One day, about a year ago, I got on this weird google binge where I was just searching for pics of Kate Middleton to look at her style. It is so effortless and she always looks stunning. I love your pairings above.

    I have been wearing exactly one pair of shoes every day for the past two months, so sadly, nothing “influences” my “style”.

    The irony! I was wearing my riding boots today!! 😉 Such great style, the blazer is divine.

    Hope you’re having a wonderful week, sweetie!!

    She sort of makes you want to take up riding horses – especially through the English Countryside, yes?

    Oh, nice job! I love the blazer. Kate always looks elegant, but she isn’t afraid to wear bold colors, and her long hair is glamorous. She’s going to make a stylish princess.

    Oooh I’m sure this is one of the first Kate Middleton style posts in the fashion blogosphere before she becomes a staple. 🙂 I love her style. It’s so classic and classy. She is such a lovely girl and seems very mature, which I find refreshing.

    I remember five years or so ago seeing photos of her in a magazine and I was absolutely stunned by her style. Her coats and dresses were fabulous. I was pleased to see Will chose a girl with such elegant style. I have a soft spot for the prince (I thought I was going to marry him when I was 14) so if he had chosen a trampy Paris Hilton type, I would have been crushed. Lol.

    Great post! Happy Thanksgiving! xo

    What about a hat!! I am always struck by her hats in photographs, and wish I had an event it was appropriate to wear such awesome headwear to. Love that blazer though.
