A Reluctant Royal Crush...



This is not a blog post about how OMG amazing I think Kate Middleton is nor her style, but more the 'Kate effect' that is gripping the nation. So you will know who has or hasn't read this if there are any comments saying 'WOW SHE LOOKS AMAZING' down below.

It has come to a point where I can't avoid her. She's literally everywhere. I've got a don't love, don't hate mentality when it comes to the royals, but I'm getting to the point where I am growing a small obsession with Princess Kate.



The reason it's a reluctant royal crush? Look how tiny she is! Pretty sure the circumference of her waist will be smaller than the measurements of her head. Every time I look at her I think, must diet. I won't speculate whether she has a problem, I just want to warn you all I'm developing a style crush (a long with the whole world) with someone whose shape and size I will never be - and I already have the Olsen twins filling that gap.



That being said, Kate and her personal shopper have done a great job styling this American tour thingy she's on - see, I'm only paying attention to the clothes! Favourites have to be the yellow and green dresses at the very top.

So...that was a little bit deep of a blog post from my usual 'check out this collection I can never afford' type post. Are we liking Kate? If you did read my thoughts, I would love to know yours too...

she is pretty adorable (and weirdly tiny!!), my favorite is the yellow dress. She always looks so polished but I kind of wish she'd do something different with her hair but other than that absolutely gorgeous!

She is super tiny, which I am super jealous of... but yep she is EVERYWHERE.. She does look amazing though, not my kind of style, but for a royal she has the perfect outfits!

I totally agree on the "reluctant" part--she's everywhere! For me, it was like hearing a song that I wasn't crazy about (either way) on the radio, but then having it repeated so frequently that it got stuck in my head! I do think she is terribly thin, but I also do like the fact that she seems pretty down to earth (ie, "repeats" outfits like normal people).

I know what you mean when you say its not like OMG wow, but she does look so elegant and pretty in everything she's wearing at the moment :)

I think she's lovely and always looks so radiant and beautiful. She's made some great wardrobe choices, but also some downright dowdy awful ones (see Rodeo outfit - too literal, and that weird, cricket-er, cable knit thing with the boy scout neck tie. What is that about?!)

I think she's got the potential to wear some amazing things. Not outrageously 'fashion' but a little bit more dazzling than the choices she usually makes. The knee length, jewel toned, tightly fitted dresses have to run out some day.... xx

Hi Amelia!

I'm the same as you. I really didn't want to like her. Tried not to.

But that style she has, despite the fact she has a personal shopper to help her, seems effortless. She really can dress for her figure.

I also seem to develop obsessions with people who's figure I will never have - and love the Olsens too ;). She must be a real gym bunny, have you seen the tone in her arms too?

I like Kate, and her style. She dresses very well, and always appropriately for her new place in the royal family.
She has got very thin though! I do hope it's just due to adjusting to her new bonkers life, but I do think she'd look better and healthier with a little more meat on her bones.

I love her! Cannot get enough of her and love her being everywhere, she's ace. Did you see Kate in Canada? She's so endearing! x

Sarah said...

I think it is hard for her not to grow on you. She is graceful and beautiful I love watching her. I have to say she looks incredible in the yellow dress.
