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 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.

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.
