LOVE the color. That's about it.

What's the deal? People are wearing name badges or something??

I believe the badges are necessary for the royal enclosure (except the queen of course)

Love the hat and I liked the look of the dress until I saw it full length. It really does look home made (Emilia Wickstead maybe??) and the skirt sticks out at angles because the fabric is so stiff (or cut incorrectly).

Keep the hat; bin the dress.

I have to say that the hat is the saving factor in this outfit, and I'm not even that keen on the hat! But the pop of color is a nice touch against an otherwise bland outfit.

I love the hat but the dress is too long IMO it appears very matronly.

It is way too long and not very well made. I'm not really liking the hat, but she still looks quite pretty in spite of it all!

It's an all right look, but nothing special. The hat is nice.

Really not an attractive cut for her. Like the purple in the hat.

No offence meant but it's perfect for a funeral and that's about it.

Day 4 outfit is a total miss. The top is just way too loose and unflattering. It looks like she is mourning rather than attending an event which is usually a very colourful event. The only thing I like is the hat.

That was my first thought- good for a funeral.

I love it maybe that I have a coat almost exactly the same ... [not pregnant BTW] but I love the stripes and the swing coaats are a bit of an obsession with me at the moment so am going against the general flow here and have to love!!!!

This is definitely a miss. The top is ill-fitting and loose, and the color overall is very drab. This would be good for a wake or a funeral, and that's about it. The hat is lovely, however.

I love the style of swing jacket and straight skirt but I think it all needs a pop of colour somewhere. The jacket might be textured because I dont think its absolutely plain. Its different and I like that. So much better that Day 2s beige box. Loving the hat.
