|The DoC in a gray Orla Kiely dress.|
The Duchess of Cambridge so conveniently stepped out in this gray dress a couple of days ago at an engagement, just when I was looking for photos of ladies wearing gray! Thanks, Kate! The dress, with a pleated skirt and a bodice featuring black daisy appliqués, is by Orla Kiely, and I read over at Duchess Kate that she wore it before, back in 2012. Nothing I like better than a duchess with a daughter named Charlotte who wears her dresses more than once! The daisy appliqués almost remind me of military soutache, which I adore. I also like that Kate kept the makeup and accessories simple and wore pearl drop earrings and her trusty Cartier Ballon Bleu watch, which I am liking the look of more and more.
|I love the swing of the pleated skirt.|
|I also like the black daisy appliqués in the bodice and the simple tie belt.|
|I really like that the appliqués go all the way around the neckline!|
|The pearl earrings are the perfect touch.|
