The Duchess of Cambridge braved the cold this morning as she stepped out to attend the Place2Be forum; a children's mental health charity of which she is patron. You can read more about today's forum here. Kate opted for an all-navy ensemble and wore a few new pieces from Max Mara and Orla Kiely.
There are still no details regarding the moto-style Max Mara jacket, however we do know that the skirt is the Orla Kiely Solid Crepe Blend Skirt, originally IDed by the ladies at What Would Kate Do. Ashley Marie, over at WhatKateWore, received confirmation that the skirt is from their S/S 2012 collection. The skirt features wide knife pleats in crepe fabric and originally retailed for €150.
Kate coordinated her bespoke Alexander McQueen navy suede pumps with her Stuart Weitzman 'Muse' navy suede clutch, also known as the 'Raz' clutch in the USA.
Kate also debuted a new pair of navy gloves which are yet to be identified.
The Duchess wore her hair in a simple half up-do which showed off her Annoushka pearl drops with Kiki hoop earrings.
I have retired the "Bits and Bobs" section of the website and started a new segment title "Outfit Chronicle".
