Did you order your copy of Together: Our Community Cookbook? I’m so excited to receive mine and to support such an amazing cause. If you’re not familiar with the Duchess of Sussex’s new initiative, you can read up on the project here. I love that these ladies are bringing their community together through food and shared experiences. It’s fantastic to see Meghan stepping up and doing something to help in the aftermath of the Grenfell tragedy.
Today was the launch of the cookbook at Kensington Palace, and Meghan cooked alongside some of the women featured in the book. Doria and Harry came along too – I loved to see how proud they were! You can catch up on all the videos and photos from the day in this article from Rebecca English at the Daily Mail.
I thought I’d put together a quick post about Meghan’s outfit at the cookbook launch today and how you can copy it for less:
It’s always fun when you see a member of the royal family wearing something very similar to a piece you already own! Today Meghan wore a black ribbed turtleneck bodysuit from Tuxe which retails for $110. Although mine isn’t a bodysuit, it’s an almost identical sleeveless sweater.
I bought my black ribbed turtleneck from the Windsor Marks and Spencer (at the time, they’d changed it to Markle and Sparkle!). I was in the checkout line and someone had tossed it on the side with the impulse items. I said “this looks like something Meghan would wear!” and when I saw the shirt was my size, I bought it immediately without even trying it on. I wore the top to Kensington Palace later that week, in the spot where Meghan and Harry had their engagement photos taken. Obviously, I have ESP.
Although I don’t see my exact sweater offered on the M&S site anymore, I’m linking to a few similar options:
Amazon Sofishie sleeveless ribbed turtleneck: price varies
I’ve been on a pleated skirt kick this summer, wearing my fave Cath Kidston style as often as possible. Meghan sported a black style from her friend Misha Nonoo today, the “Saturday Skirt,” priced at $250. For those of us on a budget, check out a few under $50 options:
H&M pleated skirt: $29.99
Amazon Howriis summer chiffon pleated midi skirt: price varies
I love a brightly colored wool coat! It was nice to see Meghan add a bright pop of color to her black outfit today. Her blue coat by Smythe goes for $1,195, so let’s check out a few cheaper options for the rest of us:
J. Crew Olga boiled wool topcoat: $165.95 (40% off at Nordstrom!)
Michael Kors double-breasted peacoat: $153.99 after using Macy’s promo code VIP (sale ends 9/24)
Have a great weekend! I’ll be back next week with the September Royal Style Roundup.
