Thank you Kate Middleton...


{Coat: c/o Sheinside, Dress: c/o De la Hooke, Boots: Target (similar here or here), Necklace: DIY, Bow ring: Hello Fab, Chain Bracelet: Loren Hope, Charm Bracelet: Silver Acorn, Clutch: Russel + Hazel}

Thank you...Kate Middleton,
for always being the epitome of dignified dress, 
Sass meets class,
and an unending source of dress envy...
jk...but no really.
Sincerely,
Anna
P.S. You inspired today's look.

Speaking of the English...Should we talk about Downton Abbey? Yes? Okay fantastic. Otherwise the alternative is to talk about my not so interesting recap of the post traveling weekend that involved lots of napping, eating (because I am so good at that when I am pregnant), baby snuggling, and movie watching...

Downton...you save us from our winter woes and allow us to escape into a world of Ladyship and Lords, old english accents, dramatic musical interludes, and the welcome comedic relief provided by the Dowager Countess. Words can do you no justice. Season 3 - I have waited one day too long for you.
Did you watch??

  6. I've always loved Kate's classic style. You look fabulous in this outfit. The color is great on you.
    I feel totally out of the loop - I've still never seen Downton Abbey. Maybe I need to start watching!

  9. I watched, I swooned, etc. It's going to be an excellent season! Also, I really think we need to reinstate the wearing of tiaras to dinner parties. Can I get an amen?

  19. You look fabby, as always! I love this look... any look inspired by Kate can do no wrong in my book! I did watch Downton last night and LOVED every minute of it... this morning I woke up almost a little sad, like I want to re-watch it and soak it up more, I haven't been able to stop thinking about it all morning! I especially loved the black tie vs white tie debate throughout - so funny and also so intriguing to me. Such a different world Downton is.

  23. I agree with you - Kate Middleton's style is an inspiration. And I'm sure that having parallel pregnancies with Kate, she may continue to inspire your look over the next few months!

  24. Cute English outfit! Kate's sister, Pippa, is not a bad dress either. YES! Love Downton Abbey. I told my husband we need a butler to announce our guest when they arrive at our tiny home. HEE HEE. Have you seen Call the Midwife, also on PBS.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Fabulous! And yes, I am thankful for her bringing back classy!

  26. You're way more classy than Kate! I watched DA, but I saw it early. I sort of cheated, I'm horrible I know.

  29. Kate Middleton is nothing but perfection, or as close as you can get to it. And no, I didn't watch Downton. Although between your recommendation and many others, I think I need to just dedicate an entire weekend to catching up!!!

  42. what a beautiful outfit! you look stunning!

  43. Amazing Anna, as you can see from my blog, I just LOVE Kate's elegant style. That's sort of what I wear at home. Jackets, dresses, staight skirts and anything straight, and feminine not to mention modest. The good thing about dressing like a royal is that no one even notices that you're modest! It just looks awsome! Girls are always telling me that I dress more like a lady. But that's my style. Oh, I also love black and white and anything with stripes!!! I love the faint pink colour of that dress!
