Kate Middleton Goes High Street Casual in a Zara Blazer

For those of you on official Kate Middleton Outfit Watch, here’s the latest. While the Duchess has yet to debut a much-anticipated couture gown, she did go refreshingly sporty-casual—and high street—out and about in Auckland yesterday.

For a visit with military members and their families at Whenuapai Airbase, Kate went preppy nautical in a Zara double-breasted blazer, a Me + Em Breton shirt, J Brand skinny jeans, and her fave wedges from Russell & Bromley. (She wore a similar outfit for a high-profile game of volleyball back in October.) Kate’s blazer cost a reasonable $135 (£79.99) and a similar version is available online for $139 (as of this morning anyway).

OMG, Wills and Kate went #normcore! Just kidding. The Cambridges then made their way to the Auckland Harbor for a boat race and thus dressed accordingly. Kate even switched out her wedges for a pair of $95 Sebago Bala flats. (Will Kate make boat shoes the new Birkenstock?!)

Kate did end up shedding the bulky windbreaker (whew) to unveil her sporty, stripe-y shirt. She then proceeded to own the future King of England in the yacht race—beating him across the finish line twice.
