Flower Power! The Duchess of Cambridge brought the sunshine and smiles to a children’s hospice last week as she joined families to plant a new patio garden. The mom of three has long been a passionate supporter of sports, nature and the outdoors.  Kate is especially dedicated to gardening— and the duchess came up with the idea to transform the terrace area at The Nook, near Norwich, with an array of plants and flowers. To transform the space her team used plants bought by the Duchess during her recent visit to Fakenham Garden Centre.

For the botanic adventure, the British beauty wore the Marie-Louise floral print crepe midi dress featuring lightweight fabric and constructed with a plunging v-neckline with an elasticized waist. The short sleeves are puffed up and feature the same elasticized detailing. The dress also features hand painted blooms against a lilac backdrop. The bust is shirred to create an empire waist. Kate’s dress is available at Selfridges/Revolve and Net-a-Porter.

Kate finished the summer-frendly style with her Russell & Bromley Coco-nut wedges. The espadrilles are crafted from soft sand suede with an adjustable tan leather ankle strap and woven fabric heel cup. The wedges are finished with a rope sole and gold toe cap.
