Dressing Royally

As Prince William and Kate celebrated their one-year anniversary yesterday, I reminisced about the elaborate nuptials of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, in a wedding watched by millions around the world.  Although I was sadly not invited to their wedding anniversary celebration (how rude), I did stumble upon an amazing British fascinator hat while I was in Vegas.  So, of course I had to purchase this unique gem, just in case I am invited to a Royal Event in the near future.  J

Even though I can’t pull off a hat quite like Kate can, I enjoyed imagining what I would wear to a Royal party…

Some of my favorite Kate looks…

And one of my own…  J

There is really nothing more fitting for spring than nautical stripes, so the last day of the Sharing My Sole Stripe Week is all about chic and timeless “sailor” stripes.  Nautical stripes are so graphic and playful, they really require few accessories, simply a spring bag and wedges or sandals.

Day 5: Nautical sundress – Perfect for the beach, pool or outdoor summer party!

More stripes I’m loving right now…

I’ve had so much fun this week posting my favorite striped pieces!  Perhaps next time will be Polka Dot Week?!  What do YOU want to see?

Chic Stripes

I am loving this asymmetrical stripe sheath dress and how the different stripes and colors make a graphically chic statement.  This dress really requires few accessories, so I simply paired it with a big cuff and nude pumps. 

Day 4: Stripe Sheath Dress – Perfect for a day at the office or cocktail party!

A few more striped favorites…

Ann Taylor Partition Stripe Pencil Skirt

Lemon Lime

Stripes on stripes continues with this striped t-shirt and wide striped infinity scarf.  I just recently purchased these vibrant yellowish-green denim pants from Ann Taylor and love them!  The bright tone of the pants pairs wonderfully with navy.

Day 3: Navy t-shirt and striped scarf with colored denim - Perfect for a fun weekend outfit or casual Friday at the office!

Mellow Yellow

Lemon Drops, Lemonade, Lemon Meringue…  All a little zesty, reminiscent of summer and deliciously yellow!  Yellow is such a fun and wonderful color for the spring and summer months and is complementary on nearly all skin tones.  Pair yellow pieces with white, navy blue or grey.  Keep accessories to a minimum since the color is vibrant enough to stand alone.  And have fun with it!  After all, yellow just makes people smile!  J

I have never been a big fan of glitter.  Other than putting a little on my eyes for high school football games (fashion gods please forgive me), I have never been into excessive glitter.  However, once again inspired by Pinterest, I was drawn to this adorable nail idea with just a touch of glitz.  So of course I had to try it for myself!  I mixed together two blue polishes to create my own shade and put some big glitter flakes on my ring fingers.  Future brides – Love this for a wedding, even for toes!  Something blue and something shiny.  J
