Royal Outfit of the Day: July 8

The King and Queen of Spain made an introductory visit to Portugal yesterday.
With all the throne switcheroos (technical term) in the past year or so, we've seen a lot of these little one day visits, and Letizia's handling the style front pretty much just as you'd have guessed: new Felipe Varela outfits, but nothing too special, nothing out of character. For Portugal, simply a trench coat style done in a different fabric. Probably the best possible way for her to play the situation, really, and I think she's got a quiet winner here. And I appreciate the contrast of the handbag, as I shut down another rant on overly matchy shoe colors. (Oh, personal pet peeves.)
