Queen Letizia looks summery in sage green Zara dress for visit to Gran Canaria and Tenerife
The King and Queen of Spain began their planned visits to all the Autonomous Communities with a day trip to Gran Canaria and Tenerife. This is to support the recovery of social, economic and citizen activity following the COVID-19 lockdown.
King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia commenced their tour of the Spanish archipelago with a visit to Pérez Galdós House-Museum located in the central Triana neighbourhood, in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. The museum's function is the conservation, study and dissemination of the legacy of Benito Pérez Galdós, a Spanish realist novelist.
Their Majesties moved to Playa de las Canteras and toured the promenade greeting members of the public.
For their final stop in Gran Canaria, they visited the Santa Catalina Royal Hideaway Hotel where they met with employees and held a meeting with representatives of the tourism sector.
Later in the afternoon, Their Majesties arrived at the Tenerife South Airport where they toured the facilities to observe the implemented health security systems. They then travelled to El Confital farm, where they were informed of the situation facing the primary sector due to the impact of the pandemic, and toured the banana plantation.
Concluding the day, the King and Queen visited the BONNYSA company Las Moradas, they held a meeting with representatives of the Primary Sector from all over the archipelago, which included representatives from agriculture, livestock, fishing and rural development.
Queen Letizia wore a breezy sage green dress by Zara for today's away-day in the Canary Islands.
The €59.95 V-neck midi dress features wide armholes, an elastic waistband, and front lined button fastening.

She complemented the dress with a new pair of ecru cotton espadrilles by Macarena. Handmade in Spain, these 'ALBA50' espadrilles (€60) have a natural jute wedge and straps that tie around the ankle.
This is Letizia's second pair from the Spanish footwear brand. Last week she premiered their black suede ALBA10 espadrilles.
Letizia kept her jewelry understated, and opted to wear her gold bamboo design huggie hoop earrings and beloved Karen Hallam signature ring.

Love the shoes! Love that she is not wearing a dark tweed jacket. Love the material of the dress. Many of her clothes seem just too big for her or too much material. She is so tiny and petite. She looked great last week in the pleated skirt- not many could wear that.

She is not petite at all, she is1,70 tall...you can see that her daughters have not reached her. For South Europe she is thin but not too much, in other countries people are accostumed to see fatter people, however in Italy, France, Portugal, etc...she is not tiny at all.

Letizia looks the complete holiday maker in her bargain Zara dress which works remarkably well on her. The soft colour is pretty and loose fabric looks cool and comfy. I admire the amount of detail in the pattern given the price point, the tufted shapes and embroidered circles are simply and effective. Even the dreaded espadrilles which I generally dislike look finein the this context. I like the flat ties on this Macarena pair, which are much more tidy than tasselled cords as per last time. A clever pick.

I like this dress, especially the colour. It looks like it would be cool and comfortable to wear. It does seem like Letizia could have gone with a smaller size. I am not a fan of the shoes. They appear so clunky, but then I don't care for wedge heels. The ties look like white bandages on her legs. I would have preferred a simple, white, flat sandal.

Even though the dress is appropriate for summer, the light grey and white colours are dull. But it looks cool and comfortable and the textured fabric adds some interest. Since it's a light fabric I prefer the shoes the model wore. The espadrilles are too chunky and prominent against the delicate fabric and loose style.

Correction- the colour is actually light green. It's registering as grey on my screen.

This is a sweet casual dress. I love the embroidery and detail of the fabric, adds appeal to the dress. The soft grey and white colour combination, works well. This type of shoe looks fine, they are much nicer that the tasselled cord ties , although I am not a fan of espadrilles. I was surprised at the price of this dress, so very affordable, a perfect dress to wear to the beach. Great choice the gold hoop earrings.

I see that you do not like the "alpargatas" (espadriles) in general, however they are what almost all women wear in Spain in summer, it has been our shoes for decades, handmade with natural materials that are very good for the heat.

That's right. Since she is not so worried about "fashion", her popularity in Spain has grown up heaps, and people are focused in the great work they have done.

Thanks for the update. I know this style of shoe is popular, but it is good to be reminded that everyone in your part of the world wears them.

She is in the Canay Islands, on the beach, where it is summer all the year, where people wear a "pareo" the whole day, ( a sarong, in English?)...opening the tourism season....so perfect in my opinion, also wearing Spanish traditions and brands.

I can't tell you how much I wanted to like Tuesday's new look, the thought of writing another gloomy post made me feel sad when I mostly love the Queen's style. However, I can't lie and I am afraid that I dislike this dress, it does look more flattering in the video. For me, there is too much fabric, the top makes Letizia appear long-waisted and top-heavy. I'm unsure as to whether the combination of embroidery and polka dots work, I may have been inclined to choose one detail and refine it. Initially, I thought that the tips of the alparagatas were wet (the grey toe cap). I find them particularly heavy against the already busy midi dress, with the wide straps, sizable platforms, and wedges. Positives, the sage colour is beautiful and reminds me of sea foam, the dainty buttons and front slit are feminine features that help with the flow of the skirt. The sleeveless cut and light fabric look comfortable for a full agenda in hot weather.
