Kate Middleton's Outfit Change In Australia Confuses Us

Is this Kate Middleton's "Super Sweet 16" or a trip to the Outback?

The duke and duchess arrived in Ayers Rock on Tuesday, and while they looked adorable (and as matchy) as ever in neutrals, we're kind of wondering why Kate changed dresses from a taupe Roksanda Ilincic to a patterned Hobbs in the middle of the day.

Not that we're complaining, we love any opportunity to see Kate in another dress (especially a recycled one) but the dresses are pretty similar in shape and color scheme, and it looks like even Will kept on his super casual, not to mention hipster (that BELT!) outfit on all day.

Maybe she's starting to panic that she brought all these dresses and doesn't have time to wear them all? Maybe Prince George spit his adorable spittle all over the first one? Or perhaps we're just looking too far into this and she simply felt like changing in the afternoon. Whatever the reason for the outfit change, we're fans of both dresses.

Which look do you prefer?
