What would Kate Middleton do?

Most women I know have much respect for the newest princess. She’s incredibly lovely but in a girl next door sort of way. We had all been pulling for her to get a proposal for the past 5 years or so. She seems very warm and friendly and girlfriend has an impeccable figure.
So, let’s ask ourselves. In a situation any girl might face, what would the stunning royal do?
I want to wear a short dress but it’s too short/cold out. WWKD? Kate would opt for sheer panty hose. Duh. Knee-high black boots for more casual situations.

It’s rainy or muddy. WWKD? Princess K would wear a hat and wellies, of course.
Sandringham, Dec 2011
I’m attending a premier/gala/red carpet. WWKD? The princess would no doubt wear her hair down and curled, a long designer confection with an hourglass figure flattering silhouette. Let’s not forget the princely accessory in a dapper tux.

I want to look my best/something important is going on. WWKD? Turn to ISSA.

I’m going to the wedding of a friend or relative. WWKD? Does it need to be said? Suit dress + hat/fascinator. EVERYTIME.

I’ve got an incredible figure and it’s casual Friday. WWKD? Jeans my friend.

I’m on holiday at the beach. WWKD? Work out like a fiend, then white bikini – all the way.
My sister is really pretty and she’s always getting attention, people even say she looked better than I did at my wedding. WWKD? Stay mum, graciousness and grace always wins.

I’m getting married! WWKD? Follow tradition but not trends.

It seems like everyone I know and don’t know has suddenly put me under a crazy microscope. WWKD? Act like a lady. Stay in shape. Dress to flatter your figure. And most importantly, smile. (The happiest girls are always the prettiest girls.)

The Other Sister

Pippa Middleton Pippa Middleton attends the wedding of Katie Percy to Patrick Valentine at St Michael's Church in Alnwick, Northumberland on February 26, 2011 in Alnwick, England. A friend of Prince William and Kate Middleton Lady Katie Percy, 28 who is the eldest daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland, will marry Patrick Valentine, 30, before a party at the family home Alnwick Castle.

Everyone now knows who she is – Pippa. Before the coming out party for her derriere, (otherwise known as the royal wedding) she was the sister of Prince William’s girlfriend, a chic British socialite. Now she is a whirlwind, worldwide phenomenon. She’s constantly watched and reported on, her fashion recreated and sought after, her figure envied. She seems to be taking it all in stride. So, what is it about Pippa? She’s been called the most eligible girl in England. Her booty has a Facebook fan club and in my opinion, she is quite cute. What do you think?

Moving & Marrying

Tumblr_kzuvq2qukb1qza0fjo1_400_large

As of Friday morning (the same day I woke up at 4am to watch the royal wedding) there was nothing packed in either Robert’s or my house. As of today, we are living in the new house. So… a lot went down over the last few days. There was rain, there was 40 degree weather, there were floods and not everything is complete… BUT! we spent the night there last night! I cannot put into words the relief I feel today as I think about my new home with the guy I love and our little doggies. More to come about decorating and the like…

I hope you had a good weekend!

Fab & Fug Princesses

Of course, Kate looked stunning. She was a vision and I have no idea how she was able to keep her composure but the whole thing was so lovely. Yes. I was up at 4am.

However, I feel that Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice need to be addressed. These pictures don’t even do justice to how truly fugly they both looked despite the chic hats.

Ok…I have royal wedding fever just like everyone else. I’m not sure I’ll wake at 3am to watch Guiliana’s E coverage but I’m still excited. I can’t wait to see what she’ll wear!! Everyone waits with breath that is baited. I heard that everyone in the UK gets Thursday and Friday off, duh. Kate Middleton looks gorgeous – here are a few more shots of her for your viewing pleasure.

My Wedding Inspirations

Today is April 27th. That means our wedding is exactly four months away. I hyperventilated a bit when I realized. In honor of that and of the royal wedding (of course) I thought I’d share some of my wedding inspirations. If Kate Middleton forsakes Queen Victoria’s jewels for flowers in her hair I will never forgive her.
