  1. Admirable work being done by mother and daughter. Trousers are practical here, but leggings/jeggings (is that what Elisabeth is wearing?) and horizontally-striped trousers are not the best look for anyone. Imo a nice pair of chinos or jeans would have been the perfect thing for both ladies.

  2. Earrings seem out of place here

    1. Yep, thought the same! But that's what happens when you start to navigate your fashion sense as you get to know yourself in college.

    2. I meant for both mother and daughter. It reminds me of Q.E. !! who won't step out of the palace, or castle, or cottage, without her triple row of pearls!

    3. I don't agree at all with your earing remark. Expensive earrings would be out of plance, not simple (Mathilde) or fantasy earrings (Elisabeth)

  3. Like the colour coordination between mother and daughter but the striped trousers are not my preferred style for anyone. Don't see why earrings might be out of place--might be if they were expensive or too formal which these are not.

  4. Both lovely ladies in clothing appropriate for the tasks of the day. Good choices on colors, style, and jewelry.

  5. How nice Mother and daughter on a humanitarian mission to Kenya. I do like Pss Elisabeth's outfit, not so much Mathilde's. But it is the work what counts not the cloth.

  6. Nice to see mother and daughter undertaking this visit together. Don't like Mathilde's trousers particularly but that's just personal taste, she looks fine. Elisabeth looks lovely - I think the outfit is perfect for both her age and the event. The earrings are just fashion earrings, not precious gemstones and complement her clothes just fine.

  7. I think both ladies look very nice. The interaction of mother and daughter with the children, and the radiant smiles of the children is heartwarming.

  8. Elisabeth is doing charity work, playing and spending time with adorable children. Her outfit is appropriate because that's what she chose to wear. Leave her be.

  9. For me, the good work they are doing among the grateful and happy young faces of children who barely have the basics let alone any luxuries far outweighs any comment on fashion. They are neatly and appropriately attired for the weather and environment and that's all that matters to me. Nice work, ladies.

    1. Couldn't agree more. The remarks concerning the earrings are far more out of place than the earrings themselves.

  10. E. is fine, great, dressed as young people of her age do. A bit of embellishment such as earrings can do a lot for your confidence at that age. She is fine - let her be young. I just try to imagine what all this attention for my person would have done with me at that age....
    M. should know better: I do not mind the outfit in principle, but the print of the trousers is accentuating the wrong spot and the dark lines are a bit unfortunate at places... but M. looks good overall nevertheless. Doesn't she almost always!
