I do like the fact Kate is wearing the scarf in support of Team GB.
The outfit is not my cup of tea, neither the more formal look (with heels and jacket), nor the sporty one. Still, Kate appeared to be having a great time.

I have to say, I think she looks wonderful today, and is obviously enjoying herself. I love this particular pic:

Wow... She's absolutely right about that Astroturf being eyecatching, to say the least. I'm guessing someone over there was inspired after watching a Boise State football game or two, lol.

The Duchess of Cambridge made a private visit to the Olympic Park in Stratford this morning to meet the Team GB women's hockey squad.

She asked to meet the hockey squad in her role as Team GB and Paralympics GB 2012 Ambassador because of her love for the sport.
Kate has played since junior school and was captain of the 1st 11 at Marlborough College.

But despite sustaining an injury to the head playing the sport when she was younger, she was said to be 'very excited' about the visit.

And she wore super tight jeans because? I guess since she had to play it was o.k. but I don't think it was the best choice. Hmm. Am I being too critical? Anyway she did look like she was having fun. For a moment there it seemed like she was just Kate before the marriage. Nice to see. :)

I loved the gray Orla Kiely dress. The embellishment along the neckline was very charming. I must say though, I'm envious of her ability to wear pantyhose that don't look like pantyhose. I know she's wearing them, because them's the rules, but you can't tell she's wearing them. Some women think nude pantyhose must be shiny, or sparkly, or have some kind of finish to them that looks like you slathered your legs in grease before you left the house.

I can't ever find a pair that look the way hers does. *sigh*

She's got to be wearing nude hosiery with a matte finish because you just can't see it at all.
