Never one to miss a detail, Duchess Kate had the perfect accent for her dressed-down ensemble on Tuesday (Jan. 15). The mother of three looked radiant as ever while making her first official appearance of 2019 with a visit to King Henry's Walk Garden in Islington. Her olive-green ensemble was perfect for getting her hands dirty with a gaggle of adorable children, making pizza and bird feeders, and the royal topped the look off with the most fitting accessory: leaf-shaped earrings!
The nature-themed Lauren Plain Leaf Earrings are by one of her favourite jewellers, Kiki McDonough, and are yellow gold studded with tiny diamonds. While they dangled so daintily from the duchess's ears, they come with a hefty price tag of almost $2,400! Kate also wore a Dubarry Bracken tweed jacket with a high collar, a maroon turtleneck sweater and her favourite olive green skinny jeans.
The 37-year-old, who celebrated her birthday with a friend-filled lunch last week, debuted a new pair of hiking boots for the outdoorsy engagement - a brown suede design courtesy of See by Chloe with a chunky sole and small stacked heel. She finished the look with an extra bouncy blowout and a particularly natural face, pairing a rosy cheek with a toned-down eye and the palest pink lip.
While on a similar visit to Sayers Croft Forest School and Wildlife Garden last fall, her first engagement following her third maternity leave, Kate hunted for "mini beasts" with local children and helped them plant pea shoots. She was equally dressed down in a pair of moto jeans, a khaki jacket, a cozy sweater and her trusty pair of Penelope Chilvers tassel boots.
The athletic royal loves spending time in the great outdoors, especially with her children, Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 3, and eight-month-old Prince Louis. "I've got such fond memories of being in the garden and being outside from my own childhood, and I'm sharing that with my own children, George and Charlotte, at the moment," she said in 2017 on a visit to Robin Hood Primary School.
She continued: "Hopefully you'll have lots of memories of your time here in the garden, looking for insects or planting bulbs. And I really hope you remember these special times for the rest of your lives."
