It was another busy day of multiple royal engagements – and an outfit update – for Duchess Kate.
The Duchess of Cambridge made surprise trips to Northern Ireland and Scotland on Feb. 12 as part of her Early Years Foundation's "the 5 big questions on the under 5's" survey, which gives UK parents the chance to share feedback on how the next generation should be brought up. Kate mastered casual chic on a visit to The Ark Open Farm in Newtownards then she tweaked her ensemble to visit the Social Bite cafe in Aberdeen.
When the busy duchess stepped out in Aberdeen, she had traded in the more casual jacket for a pastel blue tailored blazer, which complemented her John Lewis Pure Collection sky blue turtleneck. The elegant, tailored jacket had a longer hip length and lovely seaming.
Kate, who is known as the Countess of Strathearn while in Scotland, also traded her favourite Penelope Chilvers tall brown boots for a pair of black ankle boots.
Along with the aforementioned blue roll neck, she kept her original black skinny jeans and golden leaf earrings.
When Kate went inside the Social Bite cafe, she removed her new jacket to showcase the sweater's pretty colour.
Kate met up with the cafe's founder, Alice Thompson. She was able to hear about the initiative's focus on homelessness. According to the Social Bite cafe website, the social business began as a sandwich shop in 2012 that gave away profits to aid good causes. It expanded its initiative to employ people who had previously been homeless.
Now, it operates five locations across Scotland and employs 70 people.
