The Duchess of Cambridge visited Ronald McDonald House charity this morning to open their Evelina London House in Lambeth.
The facility is a purpose-built 'home away from home' accommodation for the families of children being treated at the Evelina London Children's Hospital.
The Duchess arrived in a new tweed skirt suit by Rebecca Taylor.
I'm sure many of you will have noticed the similarity to her much-loved tweed separates by the same designer.
Today she wore the label's blue sparkle tweed ruffle jacket which originally retailed for US$495 but has now sold out. This tweed jacket with metallic thread features a concealed snap front with split collar, patch pockets, ruffle hem and frayed finish throughout - all with a hint of sparkle.
I've been unable to find the matching skirt, but Rebecca Taylor did offer a coordinating style in the form of a dress. Perhaps Kate had it altered into a skirt, like she did with her Luisa Spagnoli separates?
The sparkle tweed remains part of the Rebecca Taylor line. Here are a couple pieces that are currently available:
Kate teamed the set with her trusty navy Rupert Sanderson 'Malory' suede pumps and Stuart Weitzman 'Muse' suede clutch.
Kate's elegant half-chignon helped showcase her favorite Sapphire & Diamond Oval Drop 'Diana' earrings.
