Let’s face it, she has autumn, winter and spring swagger, too, but she’s worn some good stuff this summer in particular. Before she disappears into her summer break, let’s take a look at some of her recent outings. As always, an enormous hat tip to our own Iselen for bringing her styles to our attention, and to the blog Queen Letizia Style for filling in with details. Head there to get more intel, and to find out what Leti has worn to these events in the past.
First up, my favorite, and once again I am puzzled by my own inconsistency. I don’t like handkerchief hems, smocking on adults, most florals, and most flowy fabric. But this is ….. a great exception. Letizia visited Oviedo to open the 2019 summer courses of the International School of Music. She wore this print dress by Maje, a French label, in the ‘Rayema’ style. I think the deep v, which opens the neckline, goes a long way to mitigating any overwhelming feeling from the print. And, yes, you can dress like a queen because the dress is $204 (U.S.) at maje.com.
Two wonderful repeats, the coral/peach Michael Kors that was first worn to a visit at the White House, and a red lace Carolina Herrera that is on (at least) its fourth outing. I add them here because they are quintessential Leti. She paired the Kors with a royal lady ponytail and some pretty well matched shoes, and the Herrera with Herrera slingbacks.
Leti wore this repeat fit and flare Herrera for audiences at Zarzuela last Friday, although I seem to have blocked the first wearing out of my mind so I was pleasantly wowed all over again. I am particularly intrigued by the LODI burgundy suede ankle strap pumps, although my own feet scream in agony over the thought of wearing them. I’ll just enjoy them on Leti’s soles of iron.
What do you think? A good summer showing for the Queen of Spain?
