- Inaguration of the Princess Letizia Center, 27 July, a) without and b) with accessories. This is perfectly fine on its own; I like the purple top and the trousers, even if I can't understand why she threw pink shoes into the mix. But then she added a scarf, which was perplexing enough, and then a skinny strap across the body purse. What?! This is the kind of mix of things you'd normally expect to see on a tourist that's come prepared for wherever the day's sightseeing will take them.
- Audiences at Zarzuela Palace, 29 July, a) full view, b) close up, and c) you can find it for purchase at Mango in the T-Shirt section. Listen, when I first saw this, I was on board. But then I saw the closeups. And I have now disembarked from the cruise ship Letizia, where the activities roster apparently includes classes such as "Taking a $5 Men's Tank Top from Drab to Fab with Tie Dye", "Brooch Making for 7 Year Olds" and maybe "Intro to Disco Dancing". Though I will concede that this is the best her hair has looked in a long time.
Best and Worst of the Week
This is all I get to chose from? No. I'm abstaining. I think Letizia began her summer vacation a little early; both of these outfits would just be more at home in Mallorca.
