Duchess Delight

I love Megan Markle’s eco friendly cost conscious Everlane Jumpsuit, $120¬†she was wearing on her South African tour.¬†She paired it with black Manolo pumps¬†and beautiful gold earrings. Simple yet elegant! Also in the spotlight is her¬†Madewell denim jacket¬†and canvas tote¬† she wore to greet locals at¬†Monwabisi Beach. Looking forward to more affordable fashion as her tour continues.
