On Tuesday, Kate Middleton returned from maternity leave (opens in new tab) to visit the Sayers Croft Forest School and Wildlife Garden (opens in new tab) at Paddington Recreation Ground in London. For the visit, the Duchess of Cambridge arrived in a laidback ensemble that allowed her to move freely. She layered a Joseph blouse (opens in new tab) underneath a green sweater and then covered up in a Fjallraven army green jacket. The royal also wore re-wore her Zara moto jeans and Penelope Chilvers brown boots.

The sturdy footwear was perfect for touring the grounds in while the jeans allowed Kate to bend down to play with the kids. She helped the children make leaf crowns (opens in new tab) and assisted them with potting plants. (Activities she's likely done with her young children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte.) While her causal green ensemble was seemingly a repeat of her past outfits (opens in new tab), one of the most important pieces in her look was the jacket.

The $200 Fjallraven design is touted as a "nature" jacket, which makes sense why Kate wore it: she spent all her time outdoors today. The outerwear was similar to the many green army coats the duchess owns, but, of course, this isn't the first time Kate's bought multiples of something (opens in new tab). (That's how you craft a signature style (opens in new tab), after all.) Don't be surprised if you see this olive jacket pop up every now and then in her wardrobe, again.
