She looks okay, the dress' design together with the jacket looks pretty outdated to me, though. But I do like the color combo on her.

That's the best look I've ever seen on CoW. Outdated? That's a style that never goes out of style.

Yeap, Kitty. Outdated, at least to me.


PS: I actually think Sophie is a nice dresser but for my personal taste she always dressed a bit too old.
Purely a matter of taste.

Define "too old", as Sophie is 46, not much younger than my mother, and I could picture her wearing something similar. I often forget Sophie is 46 as her children are quite young and Charles is much older. HoweverI am then reminded of the large age gap between Charles and Edward.

I disagree, I think the dress is very age appropriate. The colours blend well together. I think Sophie is quite an elegant dress. Her headpieces, at times, do lead to huge discussion and are often quite "out there" but usually her clothes suit her figure.

Nice smart is that the bag from the wedding love the hat I do prefer a wide brim when it comes to hats and the colour is great on her .. a winner ... IMO

I do think it is the same bag from the wedding and I think the dress beneath the jacket is from the wedding, just with a longer dress instead. Excellent way to use the outfit twice, using different jackets. I think the colour and style of the dress and jacket are beautiful and although the hat is a bit "out there", as are most of her hats, I think it's lovely.

her shoes looked exactly like the ones worn by The Duchess of Cambridge.

Not feeling the hat. I don't like the flowers sprouting from underneath the brim.

Love the shoes. They do look like Kate's. I've seen those nude heels on a lot of red carpets lately.

I am pretty sure they're the same shoes she and Princess Beatrice wore to the Easter service this year. I am sure it was Beatrice who was wearing them, but it could have been Eugenie. I know it was one of the York sisters. They are lovely shoes though. I always wonder on how earth they walk in such high heels in grass. I can barely walk in them THAT high on solid ground, let alone soft earth, haha.

You're right, she did wear them to the Easter service. I just found a picture of her and Eugenie.

It really does take some type of skill to wear heels in grass. I've not been able to master it yet. Lol.

I thought I recognised them. They are beautiful shoes. I'd love a pair...though I doubt I could afford the pair they own. Perhaps i'll settle for a TopShop remake, haha. It is a skill to walk on the grass. Hats off to the ladies there.

They really are beautiful shoes. I've been on the hunt for an affordable pair for a while now. Some day I'll find them.

The outfit at the Derby looked quite nice, but I would have gone without the flowers on the hat.

Will do! I did find out that Kate's shoes are LK Bennett London. But they are out of my price range.

You were also right about Beatrice wearing nude heels. She wore them to the Chelsea Flower Show.

Here's another photo of Sophie. I'm still not liking that hat.
