#RoyalTour: And the Princess Wore White...Again

No, not for the royal wedding. This time the modest white dress Kate was wearing was a white Zimmerman dress that is just the bees knees of perfection. Somehow, Kate's dress has managed to be covered up and modest but still give the free and airy feeling of wearing the lightest dress at all. If only we could all make wearing dresses that are this covered up look and feel this light and easy.

I'm pretty sure Kate just set the bar for womanhood as well. Aside from wearing a perfect silhouetted dress, Kate was seen visiting with and doting on sick children, playing with animals, and running on the beach in what is undoubtedly one of the prettiest pair of wedges ever. Thanks Kate.

#RoyalTour: The Duchess in DVF

I am going to overcompensate on Kate Middleton posts since I have been MIA these last couple days and in the two hours since the holiday, Part I is over Kate has shown up to another engagement in a DVF dress. Granted it's already tomorrow morning there, but I like to think I'm on the cutting edge of Kate news anyway, no matter the time zone the holiday or the event. I think they call that being insane.

So get this DVF Patrice Dress ($325) while you can ladies. It's still in stock in some places, especially since it's not really hit the news yet!

#RoyalTour: The Never Mellow Yellow Kate

Ahhh so much has happened on this royal tour while I was celebrating my freedom this Passover! Damn you, freedom! I guess it's too hard to play catch up on everything so instead I will just focus on the arrival of the two Princes and and the Princess in Australia where Kate literally glowed in this Roksanda Ilincic dress.

I can't really even pronounce that name of the designer, but I can certainly stare in awe at yet another modest frock that is literally fit for a Queen-- well future queen, at the very least. And in an attempt to deliver on what I missed earlier in the week, Kate was seen leaving New Zealand (bound for Aussieland) in a perfectly tailored Rebecca Taylor blue suit. Perfection personified, people.

#RoyalTour: Been There, Wore That

So the Duchess strikes again. Or rather, her pants do. And her wedges. And her blazer. Yup, in no less than three days on her world tour, Kate Middleton has managed to recycle articles of clothing that most women wouldn't get caught dead in.

While out on engagements Sunday, Kate Middleton wore a series of different outfits that looked eerily familiar--like she had just worn them the day before or something. Which obviously, she did. There is no question that this brunette beauty pulls of repeat outfits like a pro, but there is something endearing about the economical way in which she packed for this tour. It makes perfect sense to bring one pair of  jeans and one pair of shoes and one blazer on a trip and reuse them. Especially when you have a series of engagements or activities that require so many different types of outfits. It's a boat race, not a fashion show. Today, most women don't think like that that. Let's all take a cue from Her Royal Highness and wear our clothes more than once. Hear hear!

#RoyalTour: Lady in Red

Yes! Another repeat outfit from Kate! If you were watching her during her four engagements yesterday, then you saw Kate re-wear the hell out of her jeans, blazer and wedges like a boss. But this Luisa Spagnoli suit was worn back in 2011 and it looks just as good today as it did then. I have to say that I really enjoy seeing Kate in her new stuff and would love to see more of it, but you can't knock the girl for requesting these classic pieces that would probably otherwise get shelved and never seen again.

Plus: The princess playing cricket in heels. That is all.

This is in 2014 and the other was back in 2011.

#RoyalTour: The Princess in Teal, Turquoise, Aquamarine

Lord have mercy! My favorite outfit yet on this Royal Tour of New Zealand just showed up! Kate showed up to Dunedin, A city in New Zealand and basically tub noses with everyone. Why am I not in Dunedin? How to I pronounce Dunedin. Seriously, I die when I see cute things happening (like live webcams of puppies or pandas) and this little girl totally steals my heart hugging the Duchess like that.

Kate was wearing this stellar Emilia Wickstead dress that is basically cut to perfection. I have no doubt that every Jewess is wishing that she had this for her Passover wardrobe, but I guess we'll have settle for just looking at it in awe.

Best of all, looks like George is going to be a big brother soon! Will was overheard commenting on another little addition to the royal family coming this way. Yay for more Royal watching and wasting time fawning over people who don't even know I exist!
