The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge embarked on a two-day royal tour of Northern Ireland on Wednesday, and started the day in (their fancy royal version of) sweats and sneakers for a day of soccer, canoeing and archery.

But just when we thought Kate's striped sweater was the best part of the visit, the Cambridges did a quick outfit change for mom and dad's date night out, and we can't get over the duchess's mint-green Missoni dress.

The royal parents hit up Empire Music Hall in Belfast, and chatted with young leaders in the community (after pouring pints of Harp's Lager, as a future king and queen should do).

Middleton's Missoni dress ($2,480) was the loveliest shade of sparkly light green (honoring their host country, of course) and featured a skirt with mini pleats, sheer bishop sleeves and a plunging V-neck (woahhh, where'd conservative Kate go?). She paired the dress with Gianvito Rossi nude-colored pumps, matching Kiki McDonough green amethyst and diamond earrings and necklace, and a Mulberry clutch.

Yep, Kate's calling it (and we're taking notes): Metallic pastels are going to be huge this Spring (but we'll leave the "heels-in-a-pub" advice on the backburner for now...and probably forever.)
