Kate Middleton Sports Sneakers And A Messy Bun Following A Charity Sailing Event

It's all about the boost.

Nike may have Balmain on their side, but Adidas has Kate Middleton.

On Friday, the Duchess of Cambridge visited Portsmouth, England for a sailing excursion with Olympic champion Sir Ben Ainslie. For the event, Middleton gave us major sailor vibes with her recycled (and oh-so-gorgeous) Alexander McQueen marine-like ensemble made up of a wool pencil skirt and silk blouse with navy and gold details.

Ahoy, Duchess!

But it was Kate's post-sail outfit that had us totally in awe. The mother of Prince George and Princess Charlotte stepped out in a head-to-toe black OOTD, flaunting a cable-knit sweater, skinny jeans and a pair of Adidas Pure Boost running shoes with teal shoelaces.

Yes, just like you, Kate Middleton wears Adidas. And dresses in all black.

The laid-back look was accompanied by a fresh face and of course, a low, messy bun.

We're wondering if the Duchess ever has to deal with this...

FOR REAL. (via @hercampus)

We're sure she understands our pain.

On Monday, the 34-year-old joined husband Prince William as they visited the Chelsea Flower show to get a first glimpse at a bloom named after their daughter, Princess Charlotte.

Kate wore a bold, emerald green coat with a high neck designed by Catherine Walker that went perfectly with the pretty floral scene. She topped off the look with L.K. Bennett nude court shoes, a nude clutch and soft curls with twisted back pieces.

And that wasn't all. On Tuesday afternoon, the Duchess attended the annual Buckingham Palace Garden Party with its 8,000 guests from the public. And for the event, which we assume involves heavy tea consumption and cucumber sandwiches, Middleton pulled out an old favourite — a ruffled Alexander McQueen coat worn previously at Prince George's christening back in 2013.

Even though Kate did don a gorgeous Jane Taylor hat, we think she may have been outdone by husband William, who looked dapper in a top hat and umbrella in hand.

We think our invite was lost in the mail.
