The Duchess of Sussex, aka Meghan Markle, continues to dazzle me with her understated but standout fashion choices. She stepped out this week in a pastel pink trench vest/dress that was every bit of classic perfection. It was a timeless choice that made waves and had every girl (myself included) googling "trench vest" looking for a suitable alternative to hers by Nonie (see it here). The Duke & Duchess were paying a visit to an exhibit honoring Nelson Mandela (see more about their visit here). What did you think of the look? If you are as big of a fan as me, check below for four great options at lower price points than hers that comes in around $1000.

History has been made! Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
tied the knot (as if you weren't aware), and the wedding was everything I had hoped for and more. Tons of friends and family members were asking me what I thought of the event and dress itself, and my thoughts are exactly this: it was perfect. The dress was understated, classic but modern, chic and regal. The elaborate veil was the statement maker that gave us this moment
Every detail was perfectly executed and every guest was smartly
Which dress was your favorite? Which guest was your best dressed?
As I mentioned earlier, Amal Clooney (also in Stella McCartney) took my breath away. What a refreshing choice...
As if the thoroughly modern American princess and Prince Harry
couldn't be more perfect, their official wedding portraits were just released this morning and they're effortless and casual showcasing happiness in its truest form. See them here

Throwing it back one last time to William & Kate's wedding... which one of Kate's looks was your favorite: the ceremony gown or the reception gown?

Leading up to the big day Saturday, let's talk about the guest list.
While we don't know exactly who is invited, we can assume these two will be in attendance again. Victoria Beckham's navy blue ensemble made me gasp at William & Kate's wedding. So simple. So chic. So her. Princess Beatrice, on the other hand, stepped out in something more eye-catching for good or bad reasons. My initial reaction was something along the lines of that's interesting mixed with a little bit of what was she thinking. However, over the course of the two hour wedding, I found my eyes going straight to her. I became more and more obsessed to the point where, other than Pippa, Princess Beatrice's look was my favorite.
Who are you most excited to see on Saturday? While the invitation
clearly states that the attire is "Uniform, Morning Coat or Lounge Suit", there are sure to be some statement headpieces.

The countdown continues... I think I've successfully watched every tv special about Harry & Meghan up to this point. Anyone know of any others coming on this week? I can't miss a beat. Let me know!

We're finally on the home stretch... the Royal Wedding is THIS
WEEK! I can hardly contain my excitement. I'm royally obsessed and will be one of those that's up in the middle of the night to watch all the coverage (starting at 3am CST). Who's getting up early to watch? With the digital world we live in, there will instantly be pictures available, but I want to see it live. Now, it's time to jet off to London (I wish!)...

May is my absolute favorite month of the year. The weather isn't
smolderingly hot yet, the bugs aren't swarming around, there are so many fun gatherings, and it's the month of my birthday... so much to celebrate! Not to mention how gorgeously green everything is right now before it starts drying out over the summer. This month is only sweetened by fun horse racing events where hats are a must, and this year, the Royal Wedding where a great headpiece is what makes the outfit. Counting down the days to May 19th!

With the news of the third royal baby being born this morning, I've
been glued to the live feed waiting for William & Kate to emerge from the hospital with the new baby in tow. Anybody else watching?

Is anyone else fascinated by Meghan Markle and Prince
Harry? Fascinated might be too strong of a word.... interested is more like it. I'm interested in everything they do, everything she wears, every detail about their upcoming nuptials (will anyone else be up in the middle of the night watching their ceremony, because I definitely will be). It doesn't hurt that she's been killing the coat game lately. She stepped out yesterday in this long overcoat, matching scarf and black wide-leg pants. Overall, completely chic and simple. But, I wonder... how does she take her coffee? Or does she nix it all together opting for tea instead? Any insight into this would be much appreciated.

Pretty as a princess she is. Who else is super excited for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle? I love all things pertaining to the Royal Family, so this was such a welcomed surprise yesterday morning. And, of course, we're all dying to have that coat. It's sold out, as expected, but rest easy... I found some great alternatives. Shop my white coat picks below:
