Why does this make me think of Honor Harrington?

I don't know why. ship to ship combat in the Honorverse has naval officers wearing skinsuits (think bodysuits that protect you from vacuum) not armor like this one. Honor Harrington does not wear armor like this one. So I am not sure why this reminds you of Honor Harrington.

Take Care.

Honor Harrington is a character in a series of futuristic sci-fi novels by David Weber.  Look up the book, "On Basilisk Station."  :)

Overall I quite like the look of this design, from a visual standpoint it work quite well to hold ones attention and focus it towards her head while giving off the important person vibe, while not being 100% combat suite.

That said from a functional approach I'm having some issues.
1st. I see nothing that would cover her head in a hull breach, no slide up face mask on the torso section, or anything in the hat that could seal over her head and connect to the neck section.

2nd. The torso armor while being fairly good from an aesthetic standpoint, wouldn't be very functional like that. As it stands it looks a lot like one solid form that wouldn't allow any flexibility, the second plate down on the section that begins to narrow after heading down from her torso could be a recessed thinner plate that allows the rest of the armor to slide over it (allowing basic movement), or each section individually could have a larger "crack" between the plates, that would either require fairly large cracks or still hinder flexibility a lot though. Best option would in my opinion be to have the higher plates not directly join the lower ones at the waist, but rather slide over them while being solidly fixed to the plates above them. That latter most would in my opinion probably be the best to keep the visual feel you've got going, though mixing it with the first in some ways would offer some pretty interesting options.

3rd. Does she have anything to cover her upper arms?

I left that for the shoulder armor to handle. Glad you like it.

sorry, I should have clarified. Does she have anything that covers her upper arms to protect her in a vacuum? The shoulder armor hangs low enough on the outside to do a good job for most forms of fighting, but unless there's sleeves in those that slide down and connect to the rear of the gloves, it would make for another hole in the space suit part.

In my opinion any visible skin aside form the face seems like it would break the feel that this suit seems to be going for, in more way than one.

this is a very good concept, there is harmony in the design, you moves away from traditional unifrome totally robotic that we see very often actualy , the character does not completely lost his humanity. Now for the work itself the design is very well executes , and the color palette are well-chosen ,the anatomy is good it's very good job and what I like most is the breastplate and this littel detail the smoke :) .

Why is her uniform vacuumed to her breasts?

It has specific breast pouches just for her boobs?

For suits that offer protection from variable pressure environments you have the option of a positive pressure suit (like the poofy space suits we have now) where you fill the suit with a small environment, or negative pressure (basically vacuum packed). This suit will actually feature a jell between the skin and the under layer to act as a buffer between the surfaces and also insulation.

...and negative pressure suits are a superior choice due to their flexibility.
