Woman Crush Wednesday- KATE MIDDLETON!!!

Everyone is talking about her right now and we are, too! I am a huge fan of the royals, especially of the young royals, and now that there is a new heir, royal frenzy has stepped up a notch. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge just welcomed and named their son. Here is a shot of the new parents and Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge:

I picked Kate for WCW today because she did just have a baby, but also because she really is a woman to have a crush on. Her life is a fairy tale, and she just happens to be ultra-stylish. She opts for more conservative styles so you can often see her in sheath dresses, blazers, scarves, and the famous British hats. Her classic style matches her classic good looks. Here are some ways we copied her outfits:

Black (or grey) and white are two of Flourish's favorite colors, but Kate looks great in them too! Here are two dresses she was spotted in, and some ways you can get her look at Flourish.

Middle: Gossip Girl Dress (Blazer is Sold Out)
Top Right: Perfectly Poised Dress
Bottom Right: Classic Shift Dress

Here is the Duchess in a beige patterned dress matched with our curvy model and some beige dresses from Flourish that also have a little bit of detail. To really copy Kate's look you will have to master her ability to always choose neutral accessories. The black belt she has chosen (she is also wearing black shoes) completes her look and is spot on with her conservative style.

Top Right: Proud to be Preppy Dress
Bottom Right: Storybook Romance Dress
Kate is also the "queen" of blazers. She can dress them up or dress them down and still look great. Here are a couple of her looks and some of our blazers and cardigans that are similar the Duchess's.

Top Left: Maiden Voyage Cardigan
Bottom Left: Sweet Mint Jacket
Middle: Cut it Out Jacket
Right: Sweet Safari Jacket

And last but not least, another thing we love about Kate is that she recycles her outfits, especially her shoes. She gets a lot of flack from the media about this, but we like it. If you have great pieces in your wardrobe there is no reason that you can't mix up your accessories and wear them again and again. And with classic pieces like these, they should stay in style for years! Here are two photos of Kate in the same dress that we matched above, but in different years with different accessories.
