The coat is "big" it should be IMO a stand alone piece longer and worn as a dress not with trousers

Her dress is light and got caught in a gust of wind; there's the obligatory photo of her dress blowing up.

This is the first time since ages, that I am not happy at all with her outfit.
Makes her looking voluminous and the taffetta is tooo pichy puchy for her - especially on a windy day.

Its a no for me.

Shirtwaister style doesn't suit her (too gathered at the waist); the lacy pattern is too fussy; the material too thin; tights and sandals are a no-no for me. Not suitable for the occasion. Closed shoes and a contrast jacket would have improved the look.

But I did like the hat

First fail in a while

Exactly what I was thinking, right down to the sandals! Not a good look for her and definitely not for this occasion.

Not good not bad I like the shoes and see that it is probably the attempt at a first summer outfit but I agree I am not crazy about it but I don't hate it.

I think a lot of thought went into this. It's very ethereal - even the hat has a weightless feel to it. It's pretty, but does not take attention away from the star of the day. I bet that on a still day we would be loving the look.

Anna - any leads on that hat yet? I like the small sized box, that's not the same old same old we see everywhere.

I only liked the hat. The rest of the ensemble is awkward.

The hat was lovely and the dress was ok but not for this event IMO. The sandals ruined the entire look for me.

I don't mind the hat but the rest of the outfit wasnt very flattering.

On a side note, does Louise only own black shoes? I light coloured pair would have been so much nicer.

I do wish she'd dress Louise is something a BIT more modern. Just had to put that out there, now I feel better.

I liked her hat, but I don't think the dress and sandals were right for this occasion. Lady Louise just looks so bleh. She needs some color.

I think that using the Forumto criticise the clothes of a9 year old is a bit OTT. They grow up and get criticised soon enough.
