What I Love About The Queen

I don't know too much about Queen Elizabeth II except she has been Queen for my entire lifetime.

When I saw "The King's Speech" and saw little Elizabeth, daughter of the King, playing on the floor with her sister, she was just like other little girls... except maybe even then, a little more proper.  Her destiny was already cast.  She would be Queen and she has been for over 60 years....always staid and proper.  The movie "The Queen" let us in on her love of Nature and how she likes driving herself around the property in a bumpy old truck...which I am sure isn't old.

But she knows how to dress up.  She should, she's had a lot of practice.  What I really love about her is how she wears color.  Even though I love color, I hold back when I comes to my clothes. I might wear a touch of color, maybe a jacket or scarf as an accent, but never all over like she does.  Always head to toe in blazing color.

Love these looks!






Some even say her decor subtly flatters her as well.  I wouldn't doubt that was well thought out.




Enough of our stylish black and grey fashions.  Next time we go clothes shopping, let's not hold back.  Remember the Queen!  Long live the Queen!

  1. Wow, the clothes/flowers coordination takes much more planning than I do with my clothes! I wonder what flowers would go with jeans or sweats. She is a remarkable woman.

  4. Notice she always wears pearls ....necklace and earrings. And a silver pin. Now if she would just lose the pocketbook!

  5. She always looks good doesn't she. Even when she's at her home and out with the dogs, I think she looks cute! I agree, long live the Queen!

  6. I love your "niche-less" blog! Had to comment on this post because I grew up with an English mother fond of referencing The Queen! I do like her colorful wardrobe, but it's been decades since I last wore head-to-color; and then it was only occasional. I've always been sort of ivory/navy/black. And prints? Well, not since I was a teenager probably. Thanks for the nudge!

    1. Thx Jean. Every time I try to get in a niche, I can't seem to stay there! Head to toe color is a bit much for "regular" people but I am all for a bit of color at least.
