Things have turned out well and they now have three young girls and are terrific ambassadors for their small and happy country. The royal family is known as the House of Orange and Maxima takes any opportunity to wear orange and other bright colors she can. I love how she wears big earrings, statement necklaces, gloves, wonderful bags and hats of all kinds including turbans, giant feathers, flowers and even a butterfly clip if it floats her boat! Maxima always mixes colors beautifully and adds quirky accessories that make her outfits. She obviously loves clothes and it shows.
Full Queen garb. Love her tiara and evening gown.
She’s not just a pretty face either. As if being queen wasn’t enough, she’s the Secretary Generals Special Advocate for Inclusive Finance at the U.N.
She works on micro-loans and such for those who need it most in some of the poorest countries. Wonderful she finds the time to do this with all her other duties as queen. She is also an open supporter of gay rights and was one of the first royals to ever attend an LGBT conference, which she did in 2008.
I think I’ll dig out some of my big earrings and try to have more fun with clothes as she does.
Banana seems to have a lot more modern shapes and styles since the designer from J Crew took over. Love the modern look! That said, some things need trying on as they may run big from their traditional sizes. The overall look is fresh.. Some of the best..
I love these Bridget T-strap shoes with edgy studs on the strap and would wear them with distressed jeans as well as dresses for fall.
This gold envelope clutch is a great size and I can see it becoming long time addition to the wardrobe for dressier evenings as well.
BR has a great variation of jean styles in store now with nice washes. I bought a pair of cropped flares, something I didn’t have. ( I swear I had a pair of cropped flares about 15 years ago and just donated them last year! Who knew they would be in again..) They are the perfect relaxed jean with chunky sweaters.
These Aiden D’Orsay flats are also nice. I’m loving Burgundy tones right now and I think this particular one is so pretty in the suede. The J Crew version is chic too and I can vouch for their quality as I have the Crew ones from last year in a tan and still wear them tons. The D’Orsay style is brilliant as it feels dressier like a heel, but it’s a flat.
This Ashbury unstructured tote was another beauty.
I bought one more item for fall..
I cannot wait to wear this one. Cool weather now please!
