Kate Middleton has done it again! And by "it" I mean shocked us with her innate ability to look glam and gorgeous in the most basic, practical clothes. This time, she has jaws dropping over a super-casual ensemble she sported while shopping for palace decor at Zara Home on Friday.
The new mom wore suede sneakers (for real!) -- which E! reports are likely $127 Mint Velvet shoes -- skinny dark blue jeans, a cream cardigan, and a polka-dot blouse, which the Duchess accessorized with a pretty, simple gold pendant and earrings. Her hair was up in a pretty ponytail, and she was only wearing a "spot" of makeup -- perhaps a bit of eyeliner and blush. Minimalist never looked so good! We're loving everything about this look!

Especially the sneakers. Don't get me wrong -- I love her signature L.K. Bennett pumps and even those wedges she donned when she played volleyball recently just as much as the next fashionista, but there's something so refreshing and charming about seeing her low-key it up. She's proving you don't have to wear heels to look pulled together and chic. Heck, you don't even need to have your hair perfectly coiffed or be wearing photo-ready makeup!
Now let's just hope that Mint Velvet is ready for the onslaught of attention the Duchess's appearance in their kicks is sure to bring!
What are your thoughts on the Duchess's uber-casual look? Are you coveting those sneakers now?
