Kate Middleton: Always Fashionable vs. A Girl Trying to Copy Her "Ways"

I think I've admitted before that I'm a total clothes horse. I love to shop, even though my closet has been bursting at the seams for what feels like years. And, now Kate Middleton goes and travels to North America and is all over the news for the last few days with her always fashionable, make-me-need-a-shopping-spree, tendencies.

I cannot help myself but to drool over the simple and elegant way she carries herself, and how each of her outfits fits her personality and body type so perfectly. Take, for instance, any of these little numbers. How perfectly does she pull them off? I can't help but wonder what the price tag on that white dress might be.

Or, maybe I'm looking for something a bit simpler, like this adorable, navy blue outfit. That blazer is to die for! And, don't even get me started on her bag!

How about any all of these dresses? Don't mind if I do!

The fact that she re-wore her white, Reiss engagement dress only makes me like her more. Pretty sure I wouldn't be able to pull off the fascinator though!

I am constantly on the hunt for summer dresses. The difference between me and Kate may be that I am always looking for something cotton and easy to throw on and run out the door, whereas she is looking for something that is designer and always makes a statement. But, now that I have gathered up some of the outfits of her that I love best, I am all set for some summer torture shopping that will inevitably lead to my realization that my wardrobe will never give the Duchess a run for her money, err fashion icon role.

And yes, if you haven't already speculated by now, I do have a bit of a girl fashion crush on Kate. There, I admit it. So, what?!

I have a giant girl crush on her! (AND PIPPA - don't even get me started on her). She really is the next Diana/Jackie O. I loved that beige dress she wore when she met the Obama's. What's nice about her is that not only does she have some high end items, but she also shops more consciously and low key at places like Zara. I am so jealous of her body it's unreal!

I love that white dress she is stunning in it!

I think we all have a girl crush on her now! I truly admire the fact that she has worn outfits two or three times and doesn't care about it! Just shows that you don't need to have lots of pieces, but versatile ones!
