A few weeks back, Boohoo reached out with a unique request: to put together a “Throwback Thursday” look inspired by a style icon. I thought it was a fun idea and immediately knew who my style icon was: Kate Middleton!
I absolutely adore her classic style and simple silhouettes. Super timeless and classy, but always mixing in fun colors and patterns when the occasion is appropriate. And I think her style hasn’t been sacrificed while she is pregnant either!
So…I got to browsing the Boohoo website. They have tons of fun items ranging from classic to trendy, and all at a great price point. They are a British website, and they offer free shipping to the US if you spend $50 (otherwise, it’s just $4.99- not bad at all!)
I ended up selecting two pieces: the Molly Marble Print Mini Bodycon Dress and the Kristy Sketchy Grid Print Kimono. (As a heads up, though, be sure you watch the sizing conversions and go by the measurements to be safe!)
The kimono was a piece that I was curious to try, since it is more trendy than classic. But, Kate did wear a kimono print-style dress during a 9-day royal tour of southeast Asia and the South Pacific. And if Kate can do it, so can I. Right?! (I also styled the kimono another way here.)
And Kate seems to be infamous for wearing form fitting or “bodycon” dresses that flatter her figure- even with a bump! So I found a fun print bodycon dress that was similar and added leggings because, well, it’s frigid in Chicagoland right now. I love dresses that flatter the bump- it’s definitely something to be proud of! These photos were taken at 28 weeks, and you can see a side profile shot of the dress here in my bump update post.
Now if only Kate and I could meet up for baby play dates and be best friends. The kind of best friends that let each other raid one another’s closets… :-)
Who is your style icon? Tell me in the comments!
Disclosure: I received the dress and kimono from Boohoo.com. As always, all opinions are my own.
