Yup. I fell into one of the 3 billion people that became fascinated with the wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton (now Duchess Catherine of Cambridge). But, it makes sense.
a. I love all things wedding related.
b. I had a royal crush on Prince William back when I was 14 (remember the YM cover back in 8th grade?)
c. I tend to get caught up in the latest sensation of the moment (I'm easily influenced).
Grace, beauty, joy, love. LOVE.
My only complaint? The US of A could have used the day off to recuperate from the early morning shindig
But, to take it one step further...while perusing pictures of the couple departing for their honeymoon (or wherever), please take note of HRH Kate's shoes.
Which leads me to my royal obsession: finding Kate's espadrilles for myself. As of today, all I have located are a pair of Steve Madden knock offs. Jessica Simpson also has a pair (patent and open-toed).
They seem quite high, though. Would they be at all comfortable? Or, am I getting caught up in the royal fever? They just seem like a great summer must!
If you find yourself trying on a pair, please let a girl know.
PS: I am still on the hunt for my gold flats, fyi.
