Kate Middleton’s blue dress

Dress | Blazer | Necklace | Pumps | Watch

This lovely blue dress from Reiss reminded me of the Stella McCartney’s dress seen on Kate Middleton last year.  I love the lace panel detailing to give just a hint of embellishment as well as the lengthy short sleeves to flatter your look.

A black cropped blazer is just the right topper for the dress, and a pair of simple black pumps ties the whole look together.  For the finishing touches, I’ve found a similar necklace to Kate’s (stunning Cartier necklace) for far much less at Kohl’s along with an office-chic watch that only looks expensive.  I also recommend cinching the dress with a black belt and drape on your favorite scarf for another fun look.

womens linen blazers

This crisp linen blazer is one spring and summer must have.  A fabulous lightweight feel along with a casually polished appeal, it’s really a wear-it-everywhere jacket.  Plus, the price is completely reasonable at $79.  Worn with a classic sheath and a string of pearls, this smart blazer is ready for the office.
