She paired the dress with the same accessories as in 2012



It's been a busy couple of days for the Duchess after she attended the annual Fostering Excellence Awards, an event hosted by The Fostering Network, a charity dedicated to foster care.

On that occasion, Kate picked a cobalt blue dress from new Indian designer Saloni, which featured cropped sleeves, a nipped-in waist and a full skirt.
