I like the wedges.
IMO she looks more elegant in this height of shoes than in the towering platforms she wore before, because she's so tall.

Also love the Zara blouse.

Good for her, venturing out in public and looking so healthy and casual. But the outfit is kind of a mess. Nothing matches and the wedges don't look good with the jeans.

Although she can't help looking lovely in anything she wears, I agree that this outfit was kind of disorganized. At first I thought, well, she looks like many a young military wife, and is therefore appropriately attired for the occasion.

Then it occurred to me that not only is she likely unable to fit into some of her pre-pregnancy clothing, her wardrobe is probably scattered among many locations- Nott Cott, Bucklebury, maybe Clarence House, maybe the new KP apartment, and Anglesey as well. Those of us who have had babies can relate how difficult it is to be appropriately attired in the first few months post-pregnancy, and her problem is multiplied by the number of places she's been living the last few months.

We're all looking forward to her polished outfits in her next public appearances.

September 9 or 10, 2013 - Kate in skinny jeans, white t-shirt and recycling the Ralph Lauren jacket. Simple, casual and comfy outfit.

And with a nursing baby it's easy to clean.

I love that jacket and those shoes. They look so comfy! Are the pictures from the same day? In the image of Catherine with the nanny she has her (huge) engagement ring on and in the image of her alone she does not.

I think she has it turned around in the photo of her alone. I can make out a shiny band and her hand is somewhat clenched. Maybe she does that so it doesn't attract attention? Maybe it's just her gold wedding band and she left the engagement ring in the car? Probably the same day. Surprised we can't see a protection office nearby but he/she could be just out of view.

As usual, Catherine looks great. I really like the shoes, and the jacket adds a touch of elegance to the whole look.

Very nice, casual look. Catherine always looks great in casual clothes. Love the green jacket.

I don't get the surprise. Imitation copies of every outfit Catherine has worn have popped up. I have an imitation Issa engagement dress.

Not liking this outfit at all. Of course the stuff fits perfectly after birth but I hate those skinny jeans, how you can a sports event with a shirt lifting up exposing the belly when taking part in activities and high heel wedges is beyond me. Very unflattering outfit.

She raided the closet and for an event like this, I think that's great.

Spiking in those heels cracked me up, as did setting in the tightly fitted arms of the blazer. The Duchess is so very competitive.

Are those new diamond stud earrings, or something else? Anyway, they were LARGE.

It's just good to see her out and about.

I think the outfit is okay for the shops or coffee but for this event a longer top lower wedges .. what's great about it ??? she raided her closet not sure why that is a plus .. I think the earrings are topaz and are Kiki's as far as I can see and not new would I be right in saying that??
Anyway the blazer is nice but all in all bad choice for this sporty event IMO

She looked very very good and I would have loved this outfit it was for another ocasion. But for this sporty event, it didn't make sense. The jeans are a bit too tight, the blazer is beautiful but doesn't look pratical and those wedges... I'm not sure if I admire her ability to jump with them or if I think she's completely irresponsible for risking to hurt her ankles.

I really don't criticize Catherine on her clothes choices as I think she is usually on the mark or just slightly off. I am tired of the skinny jeans. I think they are ugly and look horrible - on anyone not just Catherine. I don't find skinny jeans to be appropriate for the work place, yes, yes, I am old school and don't where jeans to work. I might find it more acceptable to wear jeans, but not skinny jeans - too little left to the imagination.

I actually think the outfit is really cute and think it looks fine/appropriate for a sporty event. The only think I don't like are the wedges. I'm just not a big fan wedge shoes.

The outfit is nice and approriate though. Skinny jeans are barely any different from a slim cut jeans. They look well fitted, the wash is really great and it looks like she feels great in them.

Appropriate for the event and (more importantly) the audience of young sporty people. I thought she fitted in really well.

That said, I would have preferred trainers to wedges (not keen on wedges personally but trainers more suitable).

Re earrings, Kiki McDonald "Grace" earrings. White topaz surrounded by tiny diamonds. She's had them for a number of years. Nice!
