You may have noticed that over here at Yahoo Canada, we have a slight (and by slight, I mean major) obsession with Kate Middleton. And really, can you blame us?

While we could pen a dissertation on the hundreds of reasons why the Duchess of Cambridge is our forever it-girl, we'll dive into one right now: her style.

Because while Kate is no stranger to the glitz and glamour of the British monarchy, she's also refreshingly relatable. Take her go-to pair of sneakers, for example. Brand: Superga, price: $83. Her jacket? Barbour, $255.

The mother-of-three further proved our point when she stepped out in a pair of $200 USD/$240 CAD (shop here in the U.S., here in Canada) Blundstone Chelsea Boots not once, but twice within the past week.

The Duchess first stepped out in the brand's signature brown leather Chelsea boots while visiting a kindergarten in Copenhagen, Denmark, on Feb. 23 and then again today during an outing to a Welsh goat farm with her husband, Prince William.

On both occasions, the 40-year-old paired her practical spring boots with a dark olive green Seeland Woodcock Jacket (shop a similar style from L.L.Bean here).

The details

Crafted using premium leather, the Blundstone Chelsea Boots come engineered with impact-protection technology to provide wearers with shock protection and support in the heel.

The boot's cushioned footbeds can be removed and washed whenever you feel the need to freshen up, and their low, stable heels provide excellent traction on wet and icy surfaces.

Plus, the unisex boots are designed with extra-thick soles to insulate against cold underfoot temperatures, making them perfect for winter-spring transitional weather.

What people are saying

Racking up an average rating of 4.7 stars, the Kate Middleton-approved boots have become a wardrobe favourite among Nordstrom shoppers.

"How did I live without these?" asks one user. "They're perfect for just about any condition: cold, wet, dry. I'm not sure how I got by without them."

"Can't beat Blunies for comfort, waterproof and great tread in snow or rain," writes another shopper. "They look great with jeans, pants or skirts."

"I wear these boots literally every day," adds another shopper, adding that they're "so comfy and cute and the perfect height to wear with any jeans."

While reviews for the boots largely lean positive, some Nordstrom shoppers warn that Blundstone sizing can be tricky, and that breaking them in can be "hard."

I "can't wear them for too long," writes one reviewer. "The break-in period is hard." However, the shopper added that "these boots are beautiful, and the versatility makes the break-in period worth it."
