Style Spotlight: The Duchess of Cambridge [Part 2]

Happy Thursday!

I was supposed to do a Part 2 of my Style Spotlight post on the Duchess of Cambridge back in April, but I wasn't able to because I got really busy with school, so that plan was a no-go... but now, we can take a look back at the Duchess' maternity style because the Royal Baby has arrived!

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge welcomed HRH Prince George Alexander Louis of Cambridge into the world on Tuesday... and here are some of the outfits the Duchess wore while pregnant with the new little prince:

The first outfit Duchess Catherine wore after her pregnancy was announced was this cute scarf-coat-boots combo -- I really like it!
I also love how she wore her hair half-up/half-down... and the gorgeous yellow flowers were a nice touch!

I'm not really too crazy about a lot of these ensembles, but I really loved her green Alexander McQueen gown, the white collared coat she wore for an official engagement, and the green Emilia Wickstead coat she wore for St. Patrick's Day.

I loved loved loved Duchess Catherine's yellow Emilia Wickstead coat!
Her peach/coral-colored outfit was also really lovely. And she looked amazing in her Jenny Packham ensemble for the celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Queen's coronation -- the whole look is just perfection!

I'm not too keen on the outfit she wore to the Harry Potter Studios, but the Duchess seemed to love it so much, she wore it twice! ;)

These are the last two outfits she wore on her official outings, and they were classic Kate. :)

Here are also some of the Duchess' casual outfits:

I want her Zara poncho!
And look, the Duchess wore sneakers!!! :D

I also think it's really cool that she seems to have a favorite "bag-of-the-moment" -- she was photographed with her gray Tod's bag three times! 
(By the way, from a far, this bag looks a little bit like my Twisted Orchid bag, haha!)

And lastly, the big reveal:

I think it'd be nice to end this post with the Duchess' first official outfit as a Mom Mum!
I love love love this blue Jenny Packham dress -- it's perfect!
And I love how they are both wearing blue = blue for baby boy!

I am definitely looking forward to seeing more of Duchess Catherine's ensembles... and of course, Prince George's wee outfits! :)

What do you guys think of the Duchess of Cambridge's maternity style?

I hope you're all having a lovely week -- the weekend is almost here! ;)
