Recap of Kate’s Ottawa Style

5 Jul

After yet again another posting delay (I was busy getting my butt kicked in a Spartan Race this weekend and have yet to fully recover!)  here (finally) is my official recap of the Duchess of Cambridge’s Ottawa fashion choices!

Day 1

Will and Kate arrived in the National Capital on June 30th! Kate was decked out in a beautiful navy and white lace Erdem dress from the designer’s Resort 2012 collection (aka not yet available for purchase) that she paired with nude pumps:

That evening the royal couple attended a casual event honouring young Canadian volunteers at Rideau Hall, the Governor General’s residence. Kate wore a casual black wrap dress by Issa with a pattern of tiny white birds on it. She paired the dress with a simple pair of slingback wedges:

Day 2

After attending a swearing-in ceremony for new Canadians at the Canadian Museum of Civilization, Will and Kate hit up Parliament Hill for the Canada Day festivities. Kate absolutely killed it in a cream dress by Reiss, red pumps, a fan clutch by Anya Hindmarch, an adorable red maple leaf fascinator by Sylvia Fletcher of Lock & Co, and a diamond maple leaf brooch on loan from the Queen:

For the evening celebrations she changed into a purple Issa dress but kept the maple leaf brooch:

Day 3

During the final leg of their visit to Ottawa, the Duke and Duchess planted a tree at Rideau Hall. Catherine wore a grey Catherine Walker dress with a deep V in the back and simple grey pumps that was both chic and romantic:

I think it’s safe to say that I was enamoured with her fashion choices during her visit to my little City! What do you think? Were her outfits hits or misses? Have you been following the Royal fashion on their Canadian tour?
