Stealing Inspiration From Pippa's Style + WIWT - Day 7

Pippa Middleton

Morning ladies today I thought we'd steal some inspiration from Pippa Middleton's style.  As soon as I spotted her in the above outfit it instantly got me thinking about how I could recreate the look & luckily for hubby I've got similar pieces in my wardrobe to give it a whirl.....well apart from the dress so naturally I'm now on the lookout for something similar!

The one thing that really stood out in this outfit for me was that she'd chosen to accessorise the cream dress with navy accessories.  As silly as it seems I'd have probably automatically reached for black accessessories & never thought of adding a navy bag but the navy just adds that "je ne sais pas quoi" to the look & is also a lot softer against the pale backdrop of the dress.  Plus of course the nude heels don't distract the eye & help elongate the legs.

Funnily enough I'd been eyeing up the Isabel Marant dress that Pippa is wearing in the sales but never got round to 'clicking the button' as I wasn't sure just how much use I'd get from it once summer passes.  Of course now I've seen how gorgeous it can look with navy, my mind is full of ways of making the dress work in the cooler months but naturally it's now sold out in my size :-(  But that doesn't mean we can't recreate the look with similar finds from the high street.  As you can see below I've been virtual online shopping for ways in which we can steal inspiration from the above look.  Just use the arrows to scroll through my picks & click on any of the individual items for all the details.

Cream/White Dresses

Panama Sun Hats

Navy Cross Body Bags

Nude Wedge Sandals

And thinking ahead to the cooler weather the outfit could so easily be teamed with a navy jacket, such as the ones I've picked below.  Then just swap the nude espadrilles for some nude ankle boots & you'd be good to go.

  1. Hi Jane, this is a great look, and I happened upon a version very like the Marant dress in a very unlikely place. Step in BHS...

  2. Oh that's a fab alternative & at such a good price too! I may have to investigate that further on my return!
    Thanks for the heads up :-)
