Get the Look: Kate Middleton

Jan 24, 2010

Kate Middleton has gotten elegant, British style down pat! Often seen looking feminine in floral frocks, preppy blazers and plaid skirts - Kate’s style has evolved from when she was a student with Prince William at St. Andrews from young school girl to chic and confident woman. Building up to the biggest wedding so far of the century - she’s going to become a princess in April when she marries Prince William - her life is a true life fairytale! Take a peek into her closet for some Princess-to-be style!

Floral Frocks

Kate loves her flowery dresses! She has an enviable collection that ranges from big, red flowers to little, ditsy pink ones. She knows that floral isn’t restricted to just spring or summer and pairs her dresses with tights in the winter and comfy ballet flats year round! Pair your dresses with a chunky knit cardigan in the winter and a breezy, cotton one in the spring!

Royal Plaids

One of Kate’s favorite looks is pairing a wooly plaid skirt with a cozy sweater and tights. It’s the perfect winter look if you want to dress up a bit but still want to stay warm. A wool skirt paired with a thick pair of cable knit thick tights is almost warmer than a pair of jeans or leggings! A smart looking fitted jacket and knee high boots (bonus if they’re lined with a bit of faux fur or shearling for warmth) and there’s your winter dress up problem solved!

Accessorize, accessorize!

Kate knows the power of accessorizing! It’s the easiest and cheapest way to completely change your look! A simple gray jacket looks instantly chic with a soft beret, a cool patterned scarf and some bangle bracelets. Experiment with different looks until you find one that you love!

I'm not quiet sure what's a real friend and what's a fake one anymore. I know when there's a friend who's only a school friend rather than an 'outside' friend as well, but at the same time it makes me so confused. Here's my story: There's a girl named Xian. We had a unique way of becoming friends ... but it clicked. For the whole year I've been trying to keep in contact with her ... but she's not very willing to try and put in any effort to stay in contact with me. Her personality is beyond sweet, and her skills at art are even better. If she was to have an award, it would be a giant trophy with her face plastered on it and big bold letters listing 'Nicest Girl In The World!' ... Its just ... she lied to me.  I was all about this friendship. I was ... i'll admit ... sort of a lost puppy following around her owner.  So, I got her this T-Shirt she really wanted for her birthday, and not long her birthday was mine, April First. I was expecting at least a letter, or maybe even something cheap. It didn't really matter to me.  But on my birthday she didn't even come to school. Nor when she got back did she ever say sorry, or give me any be-lated gift of any sort.  That should have been my first clue. Even my mother started catching on. My second clue was she even told me she was oblivious and wasn't good at keeping in contact. I thought she was joking. How could a friendship so sweet be tossed out just like that? My third one was near the end of school, one of her friends in elementary was bragging about the plushies she got from Xian. Apparently she had four from her.  Xian had originally told me it was AGAINST her religion to give out gifts to other people. I knew she wasn't lying about her religion in general, because I met her mom on a field trip and she was quiet ... different. But I didn't understand why Xian had gotten so many small plushies for her, and yet not a single small stamp for me? My last clue was the last day of school. She didn't even try to say good-bye or even hang out with me for that matter. I know what you're thinking. "Girl, you've gotta be kidding me if you can't see that she has no intention of being your friend!" But this girl was the nicest to me. She stood next to me during harsh times, and comforted me when I was down. She told me I was important.  And you don't get many friends to do those special things to you. It was rare to have a friend make me feel so tall and worthy.  ... So ... I can't understand ... why'd she do all that .... and suddenly ... just ... walk away ...
