Kate & Pippa Take a Stroll

Yesterday, the historically close Middleton sisters got to spend some quality time together. They were photographed walking along the beach on Llanddwyn Island of Newborough in North Wales. The sisters looked happy and relaxed as they enjoyed their stroll.

Kate wore a light pink-cowl neck sweater that she wore back on April 28th when she arrived at Clarence House in London. It has yet to be ID'ed.

Additionally Kate wore her signature skinny blue jeans, held a kahki jacket over her right arm and adorned her feet with wellington boots. She appeared fresh-faced and her hair hung loosely around her shoulders.

My guess on the boots right now is that they are Le Chameau Vierzonord Wellington Boots (£145). The description from The Le Chameau website is as follows:
•Adjustable calf for closer fitting.
•Lined throughout with 2mm Neoprene.
•Le Chameau's famous Dual-Density sole.
•LADIES narrower & shaped fitting.

Kate's sweater has been ID'ed. It is the John Lewis Cashmere Cowl Neck Tunic in primrose. It's currently on sale for £49.50 (marked down from £99).

I leave you with one last includes Pippa's current flame walking behind her - Alex Loudon.

Update 8/22/2011

I have received confirmation, via Facebook, that Kate did infact wear their boots in the above pictures.
"Absolutely @Nicole I confirm that Kate Middleton, The duchess of Cambridge wore Le Chameau Boots and more precisely a pair of Vierzon boots ;-)"

Dedicated follower 'TH' has alerted me to the fact that Kate could be carrying a Barbour Jacket. This is definitely a good possibility!
"I think the jacket she is carrying could be the Barbour Ladies Linhope Jacket - she was seen wearing this August Bank Holiday Weekend 2009 in Scotland?"

Kate looked sophisticated in a military-inspired outfit by Alexander McQueen (Pre-Fall 2011 collection). The outfit, consisted of a £795 cream, silk-georgette blouse tucked into a £580 navy-blue, button-embellished wool-crepe skirt, from the collection designed by Sarah Burton.

The blouse is available at Net-A-Porter in select sizes as of this writing.

She wore her slim-fitting purple cable cashmere sweater by Ralph Lauren ($398), her Aquascutum London checkered scarf, and her 'Pirouette' flats by London Sole. I can't get a good look at her skinny dark wash jeans to ID them.

The Duchess chose to simply wear her gold wedding band and her hair was pulled back into a loose bun.

Update 8/15/2011

Our amazing follower 'TH' pointed out that Kate's jeans are in fact black. They are also the ones she wore back in September 2009 on a shopping trip with sister, Pippa.
