We have to admit we're quite sad the Royal Tour is over because it means we'll be seeing less of Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, or, as most of us prefer to call her, Kate Middleton. Since heading back across the pond, Prince William and Kate have kept things quiet and out of the public eye.

We last saw Kate in LA on July 10, 2011. At the end of her visit, she went to the Inner-City Arts Project in downtown Los Angeles, before she and her hunk of a husband flew back to England. Kate wore a navy crocheted top, white pleated skirt and navy heels. The top and skirt are from Whistles. Don't bother googling for them; they're (of course) sold out. We're thinking the navy suede shoes are from L.K. Bennett as she loves their footwear.

Thankfully, we have Pippa to give us our Middleton fashion fix and the younger Middleton sister has yet to disappoint.

Pippa not only held down the fort in London, while big sister Kate was wooing North America, she's continued to impress, as Kate has gone MIA in London.

All we can say is the younger Middleton sure knows how to do casual right!

Pippa took a quick break from work on Monday and went on a few errands. We love how her mustard yellow Portobello bag by Ri2K ($223.85, simplybe.co.uk) jazzed up her black and white outfit. Check out the silver hardware on her flats. Too cute!

Pippa's leaving work and she looks great after a long day. She wore Whistles Francesca quilted leather jacket, Modalu Bristol bag (nicknamed Pippa), a black quilted tote, BCBGMAXAZRIA stripe silk shift dress ($147.90, nordstrom.com) and black raffia wedge espadrilles.

Do we spy a fellow Starbucks junkie? Pippa was spotted making a pit stop at Starbucks for a cup o' Joe. She's wearing the same leather jacket over a floral print dress, flats and another Ri2K bag.

The dress definitely shows off the beautiful Brit's toned legs, but we wish the girl would throw on a pair of heels to accentuate them even more.

While Kate and William moved their travels stateside, Pippa took advantage of London's shopping options. She looked cute and comfortable in jeans, a pale yellow shirt, wedges and her trusty leather jacket.

Pippa, like Kate loves J Brand jeans. She paired her 805 mid-rise straight leg in dark vintage($169, jbrandjeans.com) with black wedge espadrilles.

Does Pippa look like she should be in college or what? She's on another coffee run. Pippa wore an adorable lilac blouse with a flared hem and slim fit grey jeans. The jeans look fabulous on Pippa, but with a derrière like hers it comes as no surprise. Pippa paired the outfit with a Ri2K Walcott leather tote bag in red ($281.82, isme.com) and we're glad to say it's still available. We just don't know for how long!

Early in the morning, Pippa was spotted doing her morning run. We know she takes the sport seriously. She's entered numerous marathons.

Mid-morning Pippa was spotted getting coffee on her way back to her office. She's once again wearing the black flats with silver hardware, a printed top, ponte knit skirt and her Modulu Bristol bag in gray.

Ever the quick change artist, we see Pippa later on during the day wearing a chambray denim dress, a Modulu Bristol bag in brown (how many of them does she own?) and the brown wedges that she wore to Wimbledon.

Tell us: which outfit do you like best?
