Kate and Pippa make a re-appearance.

We haven’t seen that much of the lovely Duchess of Cambridge since that tour of Canada and America have we? A royal wedding, her rather uncomfortable viewing of the dress as the staging was declared horrid, and that’s been it. And thinking about it, we haven’t seen much of her little sister either. She was photographed almost daily during the month of June,  from trips to Spain and France, to  Wimbledon, and then almost daily, collecting her Starbucks on her way to work. But August has been the month when Pippa Middleton seemed to disappear from sight.

But normal service was resumed this week, with new pictures emerging of both Kate and Pippa. But these were pictures which could almost have been taken on different continents. Kate was shown shopping in Holyhead in  Wales, emerging from a Wilkinson’s store wearing her French Sole ballerina pumps, skinny jeans, a pretty purple jumper, and the knotted club check scarf, from iconic label Aquascutum. The scarf is currently on sale for £50, and Aquascutum have been quick to capitalise on the Kate effect, using her image on its website. Kate  looked like she wrapped up for an Autumn day, rather than mid August, but as someone who spends a lot of time in beautiful, but often rainy Wales, I know the feeling!

Pippa, meanwhile, was photographed in fair sunnier circumstances watching her on/off boyfriend Alex Loudon playing cricket in Hertfordshire.  She was wearing a pretty red polka dot dress which was similar to the red dress she wore to Wimbledon during those scorching  summer days. Pippa is clearly a fan of red and this dress follows her usual style of fitted bodice with a slightly flared skirt.

Not sure who designed Pippa’s dress, but a pretty good guess would be that it is a high street outfit, as most of Pippa’s  summer style has come from the likes of Hobbs, Zara and LK Bennett.

Let’s hope the girls are back out of their summer hibernation!
