As royal reporter Elizabeth Holmes would say, Kate Middleton was peak "Relate-y Katie" yesterday. Yes, her dress is designer—by Emilia Wickstead—but her shoes brought her back down to earth. She re-wore her favourite affordable Monsoon wedges from three years ago, which originally retailed for £45 but have since sold out. How's that for the perfect high-low mix?
The Duchess of Cambridge was attending the Back to Nature Festival at RHS Garden Wisley, so her pretty floral dress was right on theme. Summer might be winding down, but Middleton went full-throttle with her warm-weather look—and why shouldn't she savour every last drop of the season? The good news is that if you want to snag a pair of similar espadrille wedges, you can find plenty of versions on sale since retailers are concentrating on their new autumn arrivals.
