Kate paired the top with a few baroque pearl drops from British jeweler Annoushka Jewelery and diamond stud earrings from Kiki McDonough, who she’s believed to have worn before.
The mum of three, who debuted a lighter hazel hair color in September, opted for a luscious, wavy blow-dry, with her locks falling over her shoulders.
She wore a radiant, everyday makeup look, combining a sculpted eyebrow with black eyeliner and a light foundation base.

She completed her makeup with rosy pink lipstick and a hint of peach blush that complimented her dewy complexion.
The Princess of Wales, patron of the charity The Forward Trust, said addiction is “a serious health condition” and “not a choice”.
Her support for the Taking Action on Addiction campaign comes in the form of a video on the first day of Addiction Awareness Week.
In the video, Kate, 40, appears to be speaking from home as she sits on a sofa with framed family photos behind her.
She says: ‘Addiction is a serious mental illness that can affect anyone, regardless of age, gender, race or nationality.
The Taking Action on Addiction campaign aims to reframe existing perceptions of addiction, raise awareness of the causes and nature of addiction, improve understanding, reduce prejudice and empower more people to get help.

‘As a patron of The Forward Trust, I have met many people who suffer from the effects of addiction. Attitudes towards addiction are changing.
“But we’re not there yet, and we have to be. Yet the shame of addiction keeps people and families from asking for help and people still die tragically.”
Kate, the mother of George, Charlotte and Louis, said society should recognize that “the only way to help those who suffer is to try to understand what led them to addiction.”
She said others should “sympathize with them” and be “compassionate.”
The Princess of Wales added: ‘And so today, during Addiction Awareness Week, I want to share a message of support for those who continue to suffer.
“Please know that addiction is not a choice. No one chooses to become addicted.
“I want you to know that this is also a serious health condition. Please don’t let shame stop you from getting the help you so desperately need.
“The charities leading the Taking Action on Addiction campaign are working with others across the country to deliver life-changing work to help people recover and move forward.
“They’re here for you. Therefore, ask for help. I know this was not a choice. Recovery is possible.’

Mike Trace, chief executive of The Forward Trust, said: ‘Addiction Awareness Week speaks directly to people affected by addiction, providing support and understanding so that more people ask for and receive help.’
