The Countess of Wessex visited the Remus Memorial Horse Sanctuary on Tuesday, to celebrate the sanctuary’s 35th anniversary. Sophie toured the sanctuary and met many of the animals – at one stage it seemed one of the horses got a little friendly with the royal visitor! The Countess dressed in an Erdem shirtdress for the engagement.
Sophie wore Erdem ‘Kasia cotton-poplina shirtdress’ originally retailing for £1,110 and now on sale for £777. This vintage style shirt-dress has a notched lapel collar, 3/4 sleeves a fitted bodice to the waist. The dress is button-through from the neckline, all the way to the extended hem. The dress has a fit and flare skirt hitting mid-calf, even though it appears to be a maxi length on Sophie, as she is about 5ft 4. This Erdem dress has a unique floral pattern throughout that was inspired by the surrealist painter Leonora Carrington and Japonaise painted textiles. A mix of red, crimson, pale blue and dove grey floral pattern swirls to mix with green foliage. You can purchase this dress here and further discounted here. Get a replicate of this dress here.

Sophie wore a pair of Penelope Chilvers ‘Valenciana’ espadrille tie wedges in Putty colourway, retailing for £95. These espadrille platform wedges have a grey suede toe, covering half the foot, with a cream woven heel cover and a white ribbon laced through the front of the suede, through the heel strap, and up around the ankle.
