Today, Kate Middleton unveiled her third “Back to Nature” garden at the Royal Horticultural Society’s Garden Wisley in Woking, Surrey. Built to encourage children to spend more time outdoors, the new garden is reportedly a bigger and more permanent version of the one she created for the Chelsea Flower Show in May. Such an occasion called for an on-theme frock and the Duchess did not disappoint.
Middleton chose a long-sleeved dress by one of her favorites, the New Zealand-born, London-based designer Emilia Wickstead. The pale mint green number was covered in pink flowers and cinched at the waistline with a subtle belt that emphasized its long, breezy silhouette. It made for the perfect piece to host a garden party—elegant, unfussy, and suited to the surroundings. The Duchess then accessorized with her new favorite footwear: espadrille wedges, which were also bang-on for the setting: Is there anything worse than getting one’s heels stuck in the grass?
