What I Wore :: Nashville Lady

Kate – being the AWESOME wife that she is – surprised her husband with a trip to Nashville for his birthday! On the trip Kate was a chic Nashville lady, keeping cool in the heat in ladylike shorts and breezy maxi dresses!

What I Wore :: Shades of Blue

Loving mixing different hues of a single color to create a clean look that is great for a variety of outings! Kate wore this look to a model fitting for the CMH Bridal Fashion Show, a part of 2013’s CMH Fashion Week (checkout details here). This is also a great work look with the sweater tucked in and belted (crushing on this belt!) or turned casual with some cute flats (like these).

What I Wore :: Patterns and Textures

We love mixing patterns and textures to create the perfect blend of lady-like trendiness! These fun patterned pants were paired with a metallic gold patent leather belt, textured snake skin heels and a simple, crisp cream blouse. This outfit is great for the office or a day date with friends!

What I Wore :: Color in the Office

It has been a long time since women felt forced to suit up. However, even today some women feel bound to a monochromatic wardrobe made up of slacks, pencil skirts and simple blouses. Yet, we can go beyond these items and incorporate color and pattern into our wardrobes. These items are more than accepted in a professional environment. Give it a try!
