     Although my knees have rarely seen a hemline you may be surprised – but I do happen to completely love Kate Middleton’s posh, sophisticated style.   She has lived up to our every expectation of how a “royal” should dress catapulting the Duchess of Cambridge into style icon status.  My favorite thing about Kate Middleton’s look- her chic hats, obviously!  And, last week for the annual Haute Tea luncheon at the St. Regis, Bal Harbour (in honor of the Love and Hope Society – a charity that raises money for diabetes research) I got to channel my inner Kate Middleton and rock a fancy hat for this amazing cause!!!  Next stop, Buckingham Palace for tea with the queen, followed by a play date with baby George, and finally a “quickie” drive-by Harrods!!!

     Born a New York girl, I guess it’s no surprise that at some point in my life 80% of my wardrobe was black.  The other 20%- well, white and grey obviously!  In fact, I distinctly remember weeks in high school where that’s all I’d wear- black from head to toe.  No this wasn’t my form of rebellion- this was just what New York girls did.  It wasn’t until my move to Miami, almost 8 years ago, that color began to rock my world!!!  Don’t get me wrong when in doubt my “go-to” is still a sexy LBD (little black dress) but now instead of paring it with the obvious black stilettos I may opt for my hot pink Sergio Rossi’s- don’t knock it till you try it!

     Currently speaking, my wardrobe is still probably 50% black.  You know what they say: You can take the girl out of New York but you can’t take the New York out of the girl!  But now, pairing my black and other neutral ensembles with colorful accessories has become my new “norm.” The result:  Over-the-top sexy with a side of color!!!  Check out my favorite “pop-of-color” looks below!!!
