#RoyalTour: The Easter Blues and a Little More Eyelet, Too

As I sit here with my ten year old fashionista niece, I can honestly say that one day in the Jewish world equates to at least 5 outfits in the Kate world. Zehava, as the coolest niece is known, is sitting here with me telling me how beautiful Kate looks in all these modest outfits, and is ranking each of her outfits based on how pretty they are. And we all know that the musings of a ten year-old are always the most definitive.

So while we were all celebrating the holy sabbath on this extremely long Passover holiday, Kate Middleton and her lovely family have been touring the southern hemisphere in style. Pardon me while I catch up.

This rundown of modest outfits is based directly on how much Zehava likes them, so take it as you wish.

First up on the list is this LK Bennet stunner. Yes, those famous shoes come from a designer who has taste in clothes as well. This blue and white dress is perfection. And the navy pumps are back! Sigh.

Next up is the Alex McQueen Easter outfit (HAPPY EASTER TO THOSE READERS CELEBRATING!) Kate wore this morning. Does this woman know how to do blue, or what. Am I right?

Next up is a visit to Canberra (been there!) in a royal (ha!) blue (double ha!) dress courtesy of Stella McCartney. The knockoffs of this dress will be EVERYWHERE this summer, I can assure you. Zehava loved how this dress fit Kate and especially how she matched George.

Last but most certainly not least, Zehava loved this eyelet dress, designed by...a designer that did not want to be named! (The nerve) That is not to say that Zehava liked this dress least, it's just so similar to the white Zimmerman dress from the other day, so she though it was best to switch it up. Kate still looks totally beautiful in this dress and I think it;s officially time ot invest in a three-quarter sleeve eyelet dress and nude wedges.

#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.
