I may not have her beauty and grace, but I can totally copy her style to feel like royalty! Today's outfit gets its inspiration from my favorite style star - Kate Middleton aka the Duchess of Cambridge.
Kate's signature belted coats have been a favorite winter looks for me. Easy to put together and perfect mix of style and comfort! This winter white coat from Ann Taylor has been one of the best purchases for me in 2013. I know Lorde has told us that we may never be Royals, but we can still belt our tailored coats!
Silk Scarf - Got it from India long time ago (similar one HERE)
Boots - New York Transit (Super comfortable, on sale now!)

Once again, Cameron Diaz proved that she is the style wizard. Diaz transformed a simple jeans and button down shirt into a chic outfit, worthy of national television appearance! The leggy beauty came to Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon this Friday wearing a simple jeans with a crisp shirt and sexy Isabel Marant strappy sandals. All I can say is ( as the fashion girls cliché goes) "This outfit is everything!!"
Cameron's heels cost some serious money, but I found out some really chic options for every budget (starting at $24!)

TRESemmé 7 Day Keratin Smooth collection (Keratin Smooth 7 Day Smooth Shampoo -Keratin Smooth 7 Day Smooth Conditioner -Keratin Smooth 7 Day Smooth Heat Activated Treatment) and I am glad that I did! The hectic schedule during Fashion Week leaves little to no time for washing/styling my long hair. TRESemmé 7 Day Keratin Smooth collection made it possible for me to go frizz free for a week!
How the collection works -
Wash the hair with Keratin Smooth 7 Day Smooth Shampoo and conditioner. Towel dry hair, thoroughly put Keratin Smooth 7 Day Smooth Heat Activated Treatment in damp hair (Sectioning them off and use the treatment from root to tip works best) and simply blow dry. Now the hair is ready to be styled (leave as is too if you like, but I have super frizzy hair so I like to flat iron them). After using my trusty flat iron, I was so happy with the results! The hair was silkier, smoother and shinier! Great part - I just curled the ends couple days later and on 4th day, I tried this side bun, my hair was beyond fabulous to work them into an updo! Usually I start getting frizz or oily hair at the crown after 2-3 days, but with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth 7 Day system, I didn't need to worry about anything!! Fashion Week was conquered!!Speaking of which, for Spring this year, the trend is easy going femininity! Whether it is big hair or sleek, loose waves or messy buns, laid back and simple styles are in.
Inspired by the simple elegance, here is my video tutorial for how to make a side bun!

One of most versatile piece of outwear for me is a ruana. I didn't even know for a long time that this is what it is called!! It is like a wrap but structured in a way that it can be draped or belted like a poncho/cape/cardigan. So chic for fall and early Spring when you don't need a jacket but still need warmth. I got mine from Coldwater Creek, they have amazing ruanas every year. (Here are three other ways to wear a ruana!) This one is so cozy and the red, white and grey stripes give it a very mod look. Today I cinched it at the wait with this amazing obi belt (you really need this in your wardrobe, it is such a useful little piece to give a new look to any outfit!)
