Hello, fall florals!

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, wore a pretty floral dress as she attended the opening of the Back to Nature garden in Woking, England.

The former Kate Middleton looked lovely in the shirtdress from New Zealand-born designer Emilia Wickstead. The dress featured a vintage-style rosewood print, a high collar and a matching belt.

The duchess paired the dress with neutral, closed-toe wedges and, of course, her signature blowout.

The long sleeves must have helped protect the duchess against the slight autumn chill in the air.

The floral print was the perfect choice for the nature-themed event. The duchess toured the new garden, which was inspired by her designs and includes fun elements for kids such as a hollow log, a wildflower meadow and a rolling hill, according to Kensington Palace.

During the event, the duchess had a great time with some of her youngest fans. She chatted with children who were playing on a giant swing and knelt down to greet one little boy with tiger face paint.

She also shared a sweet moment with a little boy playing in a sandy area in the garden.

The duchess has been embracing florals lately. Just last week, she sported a long-sleeve floral number with a similar silhouette as she and Prince William brought Princess Charlotte to her first day of primary school.
