Though she's known for her glamorous and sophisticated sense of style, Kate Middleton also likes to tone it down now and then when it comes to her casual wear. The elegant Duchess of Cambridge was recently photographed out and about shopping for Kensington Palace home décor while wearing a pair of suede sneakers.
According to E! News, Kate Middleton was sporting a pair of gray-blue Mint Velvet shoes retailed at around $127, which she paired with dark skinny jeans she tucked a polka-dot blouse into, keeping herself warm from the chilly fall air in a fuzzy cream-colored cardigan. The new mom wore her hair up in a messy ponytail and kept her make-up light and simple with just a touch of pink blush and eyeliner as she did some shopping for her new family residence Apartment 1-A at Zara Home.
Known for being a big fan of wedges and her favorite L.K. Bennett nude pumps, fans love seeing the Duchess sporting a pair of kicks on her "lazy" days. Back in August, she was photographed out shopping at the grocery store in Anglesey, Wales while wearing skinny jeans, a nautical striped blouse and a pair of comfy Sebago loafers, the first time fans got a glimpse of her and her svelte post-baby body since she gave birth to Prince George back in July.
Speaking of the new prince, the little boy was reportedly very well-behaved at his christening at St. Jame's Palace on Oct. 23, as the Duchess told Sky News. "He was such a good boy actually. We were very lucky, he's not always like that." She recalled the big event to reporters while attending the 100 Women In Hedge Funds Gala Dinner in Aid of Action on Addiction in London, in which she wore a stunning floor-length, ink blue gown from the Jenny Packham Fall 2013 collection that was cinched at the waist and revealed her shoulders and collarbone.
At her son's christening, Middleton wore an elegant ruffled Alexander McQueen coat dress paired with a matching Jane Taylor fascinator, the cream-colored ensemble matching her son's christening dress.
As for her next two upcoming appearances, one of them may involve another pair of comfy shoes, as she and Prince William will be taking a trip to Cardiff where they will watch Wales play South Africa in the Prince William cup for the Autumn rugby internationals.
