The Spanish royal family attended National Day celebrations today. The patriotic commemoration marks the anniversary of Christopher Columbus's arrival into the Americas on 12th October 1492, also known as Columbus Day in the United States. King Felipe and Queen Letizia were accompanied by their daughters to preside over the traditional military parade in Madrid. Today was King Felipe's first time to chair the parade as reigning monarch.
Queen Letizia looked elegant and regal in a fitted teal dress from her designer of choice, Felipe Varela. The dress is designed with a boucle tweed front and wool crepe back with zipper.
Doña Letizia accessorized with a Felipe Varela pewter leather clutch and colour coordinated her dress with bespoke teal suede platform pumps from Magrit.
The bag is modeled on the 'Sobre-Trapecio' style from the current Varela collection. Here we show it in bronze leather which is currently available for €445.
Letizia added a touch of interest to her outfit with a pair of Bohemian style silver drop earrings featuring a turquoise green stone centre. At first I thought they were new but then I came across this photo of Letizia wearing them in 2008.
Following the parade, the royal couple hosted a reception at the Royal Palace where they had invited diplomats and Spanish dignitaries.
