Kate Middleton looks ready for winter to be over!
On Friday, the Duchess of Cambridge rocked a bright red gingham Eponine two-piece to the XLP Mentoring event in London.
And surprisingly, the momma of two didn't recycle this outfit, like she usually does!
You're looking at a totally new look for Kate!
Although Prince William's other half did style the '60s-inspired ensem with her go-to Gianvitto Rossi pumps, Kiki McDonough diamond earrings, and Stuart Weitzman clutch.
Can't go overboard with a new wardrobe, right?? LOLz!

Everyone needs a break once in a while!
While their vacay spot in France was kept a secret, we're lucky enough the family brought a photographer with them to take some family pics (above) — seeing as how this is the family of four's first vacation together, and the kids' first trip to the snow.
Kensington Palace released a statement regarding the couple's getaway saying:
"This was their first holiday as a family of four and the first time either of the children had played in the snow. It was very special and fun short holiday for the family, and they are grateful that John Stillwell [The PA photographer] was able to capture the moment so well. The Duke and Duchess hope people enjoy the photos."
Ch-ch-check out some other photos the Palace tweeted out (below):
Oh, K.Mid, you ROCK!
Kate Middleton visited Scotland for her first solo duties up north on Wednesday, where she spent time at St. Catherine's primary school and the Wester Hailes Education Centre.
As you know, the Duchess of Cambridge has made it her primary mission to raise awareness and improve children's mental health, and she regularly checks in at various schools throughout the UK.
On this occasion, the 34-year-old was still in winter style mode, wearing the same hunter green Sportmax coat she also wore on Christmas last year.
The mom of two further embraced Scottish designers by wearing a skirt from Le Kilt and earrings by Kiki McDonough.
On her last stop at Craigmount High School, Kate changed into comfy sportswear to play tennis with British champ Andy Murray's mother Judy Murray for the latter's Tennis on the Road program.
And obviously she looked just as good in track pants and a white thermal as she does in her tailored coats and shimmering gowns.
Talk about first world problems.
Here's what's going on — some staff at Buckingham Palace are threatening to quit their positions after the charity that manages their salaries proposed pay cuts. Some workers could lose up to $5,000 dollars a year.
While this situation isn't ideal, at the end of the day it won't really affect the royal couple considering the issue concerns staff that manage the grounds and visiting tourists. Basically, Will and Kate can rest easy.
The confidante went on to add that those who work very closely with the fancy pair
We're so thrilled to see Kate Middleton taking on such an important cause!
On Wednesday, Kate expressed her views on children's mental health in a blog post through the Huffington Post's "Young Minds Matter" series. The piece was as well written as it was informative.
In the message, Middleton expresses her belief that addiction and adulthood problems are often caused by "unresolved childhood challenges". The momma warned that if precautionary measures aren't taken to address the needs of "taboo" issues children too often face, this will lead to major issues down the road.
K.M. elaborated on her position:
"…time and time again, the issues that led people to addiction and destructive decision making seemed to almost always stem from unresolved childhood challenges. It became clear to me that many children — even those younger than five — have to deal with complex problems without the emotional resilience, language or confidence to ask for help. And it was also clear that with mental health problems still being such a taboo, many adults are often too afraid to ask for help for the children in their care."
While this is such a sensitive issue, it's nice to see the Duchess of Cambridge working with mental health charities like the Anna Freud Centre to bring change.
The brunette explained:
"Like most parents today, William and I would not hesitate to seek help for our children if they needed it. We hope to encourage George and Charlotte to speak about their feelings, and to give them the tools and sensitivity to be supportive peers to their friends as they get older. We know there is no shame in a young child struggling with their emotions or suffering from a mental illness."
Aw! Georgie and Char are SO lucky to have such well-informed and doting parents!

Another appearance, another coat dress.
Thank goodness for them because we're not sure what Kate Middleton would do without them!
The Duchess of Cambridge reported for her first official engagement as the RAF Cadets Honorary Air Commandant during the group's 75th anniversary celebration held at St. Clement's Church in Westminster Sunday.
She's only the third person from the royal family to serve as honorary air commandant, after King George IV and Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, who passed the honor to the duchess in December 2015.
Kate wore a powder blue custom Alexander McQueen coat with pleated back and large front flap pockets. She originally wore this piece back in April 2014 and again in June of that year, so it's been a while since we've seen it!
The 34-year-old also styled the number with Rupert Sanderson pumps, Lock & Co. hat, and a Stuart Weitzman for Russell & Bromley clutch, all in navy blue.
A video of the Duchess discussing mental health was also released on Monday:
