Give me more peN.Ne

My current obsession: penne arrabiata! I just cannot get enough of this simple, yet delicious pasta with a tomato/chili sauce (and garlic!). I had this three times (in the same restaurant) last week! I also like ordering it because the name is fun / a challenge to pronounce. Can you roll your r's?

But more importantly, do say penne properly: pen-neh. If you just say pen-eh, it means something rather different (hint: male body part)...!

Kate at Wimbledon

Cute dress - I probably wouldn't have chosen it for myself but it looks good on her - and in the spirit of Wimbledon. Have you seen her arms? Very toned, not just skinny - I thought she'd simply lost a lot of weight recently but it looks like she's been working out!

Kate's military chic

I absolutely adore this coat!
I guess it looks a lot like the one I got from Zara last year...

High on Prada

What was I thinking?!

I just bought a pair of impossible sandals from Prada. I don't even know if I'll be able to walk in them. My biggest fear is that I'll twist my ankle trying to walk in them. Now that would be embarrassing...

They are nice looking, though, aren't they?

A little Chanel to keep me going...

Whilst waiting rather impatiently for another must-have Chanel bag to come along (and I'm ready to pounce, believe me), I treated myself to this several weeks ago... 

A thin pink patent belt. It is/was unfortunately limited edition (spring-summer pre-collection) so most of the other basic colours like black and red were sold out by the time I went shopping. There was nothing left in my size, either, but I was determined to get one! J'adore :-)

Kate Middleton at a friend's wedding

At Sam Waley-Cohen's wedding, wearing another 'recycled' dress - worn back in 2007.

Kate Middleton at Trooping the Colour

I can't see the whole outfit but I'm not too keen on this... What do you think?

Kate Middleton at the Duke's 90th

Celebrating the Duke of Edinburgh's 90th birthday. We've seen that coat dress before... and come to think of it, I think the dress she's wearing underneath is the Zara dress that she wore the day after the wedding... Anyway, I think 'recycling' is a good thing!

Kate Middleton out shopping before the Gala

A few hours before the Gala, looking totally normal...

Kate Middleton at the Ark Gala

She looks fabulous! The dress is so shimmery, it makes me think of a mermaid...

Kate Middleton in white at the Epsom Derby

I adore all of the colours she chose to wear here: taupe, white, beige. I was less keen on the outfit itself when I first saw it - wasn't too sure about the skirt (dress, actually) and the cream + white combination - but it's growing on me :-) In any case, she looked lovely and is the perfect royal.  

I really like the way she had her hair done.
