Kate Middleton Looked—Dare We Say—Kind of Boho Today

Kate Middleton stepped out to hone one of her most creative skills today.

The 37-year-old Duchess of Cambridge attended a photography workshop run by her new patronage, the Royal Photographic Society, that aims to help young people develop confidence and photography skills.

Middleton leaned into the artistic facets of the event and wore a tiered paisley print midi dress with flutter sleeves and a cinched waist.

As of now, the designer of the dress has not been identified, but we’re hoping our research pays off soon because we totally need one of our own.

Middleton paired the sundress with her go-to Castaner Carina espadrilles. Unfortunately, they’re sold out in light brown, but her exact style of wedge is still available in black ($120). She completed the look with another royal re-wear: Her 18 carat gold Catherine Zoraida Fern hoop earrings ($191). We’d be remiss not to mention those bouncy curls, too.

During the event, the duchess and her fellow photography enthusiasts from the Action for Children organization (another patronage of K-Middy’s) learned about portraits, light and color. While there, Middleton reportedly referred to herself as an “enthusiastic amateur photographer.”

Middleton’s attendance at the event comes immediately after Kensington Palace announced that Queen Elizabeth had handed down the Royal Photographic Society patronage to her. Her Majesty became patron to the organization in 1952.

But the duchess’s new patronage isn’t her first brush with art. She studied art history in college and based her thesis on photography. She’s also taken several beautiful portraits of her children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, over the last several years.

We can’t wait to see what she learned from the workshop.
