Pippa Middleton in London with Nico Jackson

Pippa Middleton braced the bad weather for a date with Nico Jackson


Pippa Middleton and her boyfriend Nico Jackson braced the bad weather to enjoy an evening out together in London last night.

The couple spent the evening in South Kensington at the stylish Bo Lang restaurant. Described as a 'stylish dim sum and teahouse specialising in traditional and avant garde dim sum', the very thought of it is making us hungry.

As they left the restaurant, Pippa was seen battling with an umbrella in the relentless January wind and rain, before getting into a car to go home.

Kate Middleton's sister was certainly dressed for winter – the party planner opted for a warm puffa jacket and flat black boots – while a date night-appropriate, leopard-print skirt peeked out from below her coat.

Pippa was also pictured holding the Aspinal handbag that sparked an online shopping frenzy last week. The £750 leather tote sold out within hours after photos emerged of Pippa carrying it on a shopping trip in the capital.

If you weren't lucky enough to get your hands on one (or the purse strings wouldn't stretch that far), Girl Meets Dress is now stocking styles by British label, Beulah – a brand loved by both Pippa and Kate. So if you want to emulate Pippa's style for the fraction of the cost, Girl Meets Dress should be your first port of call.

Meanwhile, Nico Jackson looked slightly less ready for the gruelling weather, wearing only a suit jacket and with no umbrella to keep him dry. Somehow, he still managed cut a pretty dapper figure though.

Although rumours are rife that the pair are engaged, nothing has yet been confirmed.

But maybe 2014 will be the year for another Middleton wedding. Watch this space...
