I just couldn't let another Monday go by without a fun inspiration post.
When Kate Middleton married Prince William, I think most all of us remember the hat that Princess Beatice of York wore to the wedding. Whether you liked it or not, it was quite the sensation, and it still grabs our attention, or at least mine :)
I decided to take a look at some of her other fashion choices, and I was so pleased to find a young woman who really has a lovely sense of style, and isn't afraid to take a risk.
I absolutely love this jacket and how it was styled with the black and white pumps, orange skirt, and the light orange wool felt orange hat.
Such a simple, and yet sophisticated look. The tuxedo style jacket is rather boxy, but softened by the fullness of the skirt, and the tie belt.
The soft puffed sleeves and the loose tie around the neckline are offset with the gathered cummerbund and pleated skirt.
I love a coat that pops! Believe it or not, this one is from Burberry.
I think this is a great summer look, a white skirt paired with a 3/4 length sleeved baseball jacket.
The hat is not my favorite, but I do love the skirt! This could easily be achieved with an African wax print.
Hope you found a little inspiration:)
If nothing more, don't be afraid to take a risk. It may not always work out, but when it does, it can be fabulous!
