Kate Middleton loves a good fashion rewear, and she threw it way back to her pre-royal days this morning in Ireland when she stepped out in a cream Reiss coat from 2008. Kate paired the piece with black skinny jeans and her Equipment polka dot blouse. Yesterday, she'd dressed in head-to-toe green for both daytime and evening to mark her and William's first day in Ireland.

Here's Kate first wearing the coat before she was engaged to William, back in 2008. The couple got engaged in October 2010:

Today, she wore the piece to Jigsaw, Ireland's National Centre for Youth Mental Health, in Dublin. Inside, she took off the coat to reveal her Equipment blouse.

William and Kate will be touring the country today and tomorrow before they return to England. Ahead of their visit, the Palace announced their trip will "focus on the relationship between [the UK and Ireland], and build on the theme of remembrance and reconciliation." In addition to Dublin, Kate and William will also go to County Meath, County Kildare, and Galway during the visit.

Kate has worn a largely green wardrobe in homage to the country so far. She arrived in an emerald green Catherine Walker coat with a lime green print Alessandra Rich dress. She wore a padded headband that day too.

That evening, Kate switched into her most formal look: a glittery The Vampire's Wife emerald dress. The Duchess visited the Gravity Bar at Guinness Storehouse for a reception.
