It's not so much about the clothes but more about needing help to put them together in a suitable way.

Oh not sure now - did you refer to yesterday at the zoo? In this case, it was a private occasion and I did not critizise. The boots look indeed like riding boots (that was no irony) and if she likes to wear them - fine. If you were referring to the National Day and relating Letizia's outfit to Zara, it looked nice but for me not enough for such an occasion. Queen and Infantas did much better here in terms of elegance.

D of M, two things

1. If you are a good observer, an you are, you have to remark that the Princess is very, very often wearing opaque tights. I have yet giving apart of explanation about that! As a woman try to guess....

2. If you are riding with kind of very beautiful boots, it's exactly the same thing as doing a hike with pumps!! It's so obvious that I' don't see the sens of your remark, except the ironic one....

There might be some irony in my posts from time to time but not this time, I swear . Well, here is even some evidence
Google Image Result for http://images.usatoday.com/life/_photos/2007/05/30/lauren-charticle/boots.jpg

These boots for example by Ralph Lauren are actually inspired by original riding boots. In Britain these boots are used in training by professional horseriders or jockeys (men and women) and they look exactly like Letizia's boots. Same thing in France, if you don't believe me take a trip to Longchamp and have a closer look at the guys riding out there

Many thanks to CrisInaki, Lula and everybody for the great pics!
Cristina looks really great !
Felipe and Elena looks chic at the zoo, though they are casually dressed.
I love Froilan with his hands on his hips. So funny!
Cute Leonor seems a bit sleepy.
Duke of Marmalade, I think I should have quoted all your posts and written "I agree with you", because I definetely do.
I only disagree a little bit on Letizia's boots, because I don' think that riding ( or not) boots look bad with jeans on a private visit to the zoo, though I don't like those ones, AWFUL colour!!! They are a sort of orange and don't match her bag.

I am not that surprised. Latin peoples, like Spanish, Italians, South Americans,etc. spend much more time with their families than other peoples do. We have a different idea of family.
I don't mean better, just different!

I was just surprised to see such gross and heavy boots on Letizia as I only see them in connection with horseriding or -racing. I agree boots look good, especially with jeans being tucked in but I had expected more elegant ones and I don't like the colour either, does not match with the rest.

Oh what a lovely family. Its so good to see the Queen with all 3 of her children and the next generation (grandchildren). It wouldve also been really nice to Felipe's daughter Sofia, i know she is abit too young but it'll be a nice change to take her ot with the family & the zoo is always a good place to take kids too.

all ladies looked lovely in the down to earth outfit's, its nice to see them in jeans, casual pants & tops. I like Letizia's boots, very fashionable.
Thanks for all the pictures

I agree princess leonor, these two deserves an award and recognition for their great postings in the SRF thread. For lula, for up-to-date news, articles, schedules and other links that I would have not known and for Crisiñaki for posting the best quality photos here

In the US these type of boots are worn in the cities for work and leisure.

The family looks wonderful!
We see again the little doll,Letizia is especially nice with casual clothes,I like how she combines colors, and it is not necessary ,absolutely,that bag and boots have the same shade of brown, it's can be different and looks good.

I'm not sure about the furore surrounding Letizia's boots, tucking your jeans into boots has been around for several years now and any style goes.

perhaps the boot thing isn't that innovative, but in any case i like it. the whole outfit looks smart and casual, but not overdone and it suits her very well. she has the right body to wear it and it looks feminine and not out of fashion.

Very nice pictures. There is a nice gesture between Letizia and Jaime. I wonder how he is, he has not been looking good lately. Good for him there is a close relation within the family.

Irene and Leonor are very cute, it has been a while now since their last appearance, so a nice opportunity to see them out and about. I like the way Irene is dressed but no idea why a two year + 4 months old toddler still needs a pacifier; Leonor almost looks like a little adult with her chichi dresses rather than a two year old still wearing nappies. I wish Letizia put the same effort into dressing up herself that she puts into dressing up her daughter.

The pics of course show the reality when taking small toddlers to the zoo; too much attention resulting in overstrain and both don't look like they enjoyed it at all, one obviously felt uncomfortable, the other one slept. Very different to the older kids who obviously had a great day including Grandma, proudly taking pictures of the grandkids.
