  • Kate Middleton arrived to the Royal Foundation this morning in a gorgeous bespoke Chanel black-and-white tweed suit.
  • This may be a new outfit for the duchess, with black Tod's shoes, Mulberry clutch, and Kiki McDonough earrings.

We've been blessed with SO many royal engagements in 2019! This morning, Kate Middleton is attending the Royal Foundation’s "Mental Health in Education" conference. And she just stepped out in a gorgeous black and white, double-breasted tweed suit, giving me major work inspiration for my next big event (I work from home, but STILL).

Kate arrived without a coat, looking warm and picture-perfect as she stepped out of the car for the outing. Her hair, as it often is, was down and curly in soft waves. So far, what we have for the outfit IDs are that the jacket and matching skirt are bespoke Chanel (and potentially a new outfit for the duchess), the black shoes might be Tod's, her black envelope clutch may be Mulberry, and her earrings are Kiki McDonough.

Even though tweed can sometimes look stuffy, Kate added high, pointed heels, which, combined with the frayed edges of the skirt and jacket, gave the outfit a more modern and updated feel.

According to Getty, "The conference will bring together delegates from across the mental health and education sectors to explore and discuss the benefits of collaborative working and what more can be done to tackle mental health issues in schools." That's a cause that Kate and William particularly focus on, and have been prioritizing in the past few weeks.

Here's a video of the outfit in action:

Later this evening, Kate will be attending a gala for Mentally Healthy Schools at the V&A Museum in London, so here's hoping she stuns just as much as that gorgeous white BAFTAs dress.
