Hot off her busy (“busy”) week last week guest editing the Huffington Post UK and hanging with some RAF peeps, Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, took to the shops for some R&R.
Kate was out in London shopping at Lululemon – the fitness wear company. I’m assuming this was taken last week since Kate would have been in London, but the Daily Mail does not say when the photo was taken.
Kate actually wore casual clothes for this outing, though they were expensive casual clothes. Kate wore a £1,250 leather and suede gilet over a £395 black honeycomb rollneck sweater, both from Temperley. She also wore leggings and a pair of £75 Asics sneakers that are clearly worn in. Kate topped off her outfit with her Annoushka Pearl Drop earrings and her Tods grey leather bag. This outfit does not look like it should cost as much as it does.
I still think it’s a bit ridiculous how much Kate shops, but I will give her the benefit of the doubt for shopping for athletic wear. After a while, you do need to replace your workout clothes. But I will side-eye shopping at Lululemon. Their stuff is ridiculously overpriced – a normal tank is $42 and a normal shirt is $58. For workout wear that is meant to get sweaty and gross, there is no need to spend that much.
If you want to vomit due to high sugar intake, you can read this article about the chief executive of Mind praising Kate’s “hugely impressive”, “commendable long term commitment to mental health”. Blah. There is nothing wrong with Kate championing mental health, but don’t praise her for something she has not done. And for the love of frog don’t lump William in there when he’s done less for mental health than Kate has.
