Pippa Middleton Is Back In Plaid (PHOTOS, POLL)

We can gladly report that after trying on a pilgrim/nun/FLOTUS-like dress earlier this week, Pippa Middleton is back to her more regular look: black blazer and a colorful skirt.

The Brit, whose famous sister Catherine made headlines today for her impending royal world tour, took her typical route to work today in a black jacket, black boots and a cute red plaid kilt with buckles on the side that we're guessing is by Alexander McQueen.

And of course, she carried her namesake Modalu satchel in the black patent leather version (she's got the camel leather one, too) -- because when you've got a bag named after you, how could you not use it everyday?

Luckily, the whole look managed to avoid the "schoolgirl" feel (she can thank her modest flat shoes and tights for that) and appear pulled-together -- a definite improvement from the last time Pips wore plaid.

So take a look below -- what do you think of Pippa in plaid?
