Last week, The Countess of Wessex held a reception at St. James’s Palace to promote disability inclusion in the workplace and shine a spotlight on the importance of their inclusion to business leaders. The Countess meet and spoke to campaigners and employers. Sophie returned to one of her favourite designers for the event.
The Countess wore her Erdem ‘Paisley vine print silk crêpe de chine dress’. The pale blue dress features a high frilled collar, three quarter-length sleeves with flared cuffs, a pleated panel at the front with button detail, a flared knee length skirt ending a fun flounce ruffle hemline. A delicate paisley and floral pattern features over the dress. The dress has a concealed zip fastening at back and is made in England from 100% silk. This dress is sold out, though you can still view the details here.
The Countess accessorised with her Diamond and Blue Topaz cushion cut earrings. Hanging from a gold stud and thin gold bar is a small round cut diamond atop the cushion cut blue topaz. A very delicate earring and a beautiful style on Sophie. We know that she favours blue topaz and aquamarines in her tiaras, earrings and brooches. Try these earrings to get Sophie’s look here.
We have seen Sophie wore these earrings at Royal Ascot (day 2) back in 2012.
Sophie wore her Penelope Chilvers ‘Tango’ pumps in taupe. These new Mary-Jane block heel pumps in grey suede seem to be a new favourite of Sophie’s and in heavy rotation within her wardrobe. The thick angle strap weighs down the pretty feminine floaty floral dress and perhaps a lighter choice of shoe for this outfit. The pumps retail for £239 and you can purchase them here.
The Countess appeared to add a new white leather strap watch to her outfit today. She has worn a white watch in the past but not in the leather.
Sophie wore her hair in a half-up do held with a black acetate clip.
