The Duchess of Cambridge has perfected the art of dressing for early fall!

On Tuesday, the former Kate Middleton spent the day visiting with families and volunteers who work with peer-to-peer support organizations. As always, the duchess totally nailed her outfit and opted for the perfect look for transitioning her style from summer to fall.

According to style blog What Kate Wore, the 38-year-old sported a pair of dark-rose cropped trousers from Marks and Spencer (one of her go-to brands), a chic white puff-sleeve top from Ralph Lauren and her beloved Superga sneakers.

The mother of three also honored her children by wearing a sweet gold necklace with three charms that are engraved with the first letter of each of their names.
