The Queen of Spain attended the 5th Educational Congress of Rare Diseases today which took place at the secondary school Pedro de Valdivia in the town of Villanueva de la Serena.
The meeting was organised by the Spanish Federation of Rare Diseases (FEDER) of which Her Majesty is honorary president.
After the conference, Queen Letizia stopped by a few classrooms to meet some of the high school students.
Following a week of pastel hues and elegant dresses, it was back to contemporary styling for the Spanish queen today. Letizia repeated a look she premiered last May for the FameLab International competition.
It consists of a white Massimo Dutti textured weave gilet teamed with black leather leggings.
She extended the modern styling to her footwear today, ditching her usual stiletto high-heels for a new pair of Adolfo Domínguez’s Mule Slippers. The loafer style slip-ons are made from bovine leather upper and are available €136/US$249.
Letizia carried a new bucket style handbag today. It appears to be decorated with tonal flower, leaf and pom pom appliques. I have been unable to identify so please drop me a line if you recognise it!
ID UPDATE (8 Jul 2018): The bag is an old season peice by Zara. Thanks to Edith for sending me a hint in the comments!
She finished the look with her beloved Gold & Roses Double Dagger Earrings (€2,125).
The casual sophistication of today's outfit is inconsistent with Letizia's previous sartorial choices for this annual event which have been more refined and elegant. What did you think of this year's contemporary look?
