Royalty Excitement!

 This is the best day of my life, for I have seen THE QUEEN! Observe the genuine happiness on my face! This sunflower dress was the best and breeziest outfit I could muster while waiting outside in the blistering heat to catch a fleeting glimpse of Her Majesty. But catch a fleeting glimpse I did! Her and Prince Phillip pulled up in a motorcade and I saw her step out of the vehicle wearing a wonderful yellow suit dress with a matching hat. I only really saw the back of her, but it was such a wonderful experience! The celebrity of the Queen is so much more awesome and historical than that of Britney Spears, y'know?

Here is an outfit from a few days ago, I got about a million weird stares and awkward comments on the tights.

I'm so jealous! I love the Queen! :(

Your tights are amazing, I love that you paired it with that oversized jumper (mmm yummy colour) which means they just... work. Looks lovely. :)

You're almost flushed with excitement! I love that sunflower dress on you, also really like the oversized jumper with the tights. It also looks really damn comfy, which is something I always like.
A couple of years ago I wore some bright pink leggings (this was before they came back into fashion), and some person actually shouted at me in the street 'What are those?'
My grandparents had been to tea with the Queen!

One of those million awkward comments about your tights coming from my super-awkward bf who can't tell a dress from a skirt...

oh and by the way, LOVE the sunflower dress.

Levina said...

The tights are just awesome, we should pity them blind to awesomeness people. And I bet the Queen would be so jealous of your sunflower dress if she'd seen it!a

I like the first outfit, but I LOVE the second one. I'm really digging those shoes.

Glad you got to see the queen! I might have fainted.

sarah said...

I love this big sweatters !!

McKenzie said...

I wish someone would make tights like that, only with transparent feathers. They would be mine.

Kudos on Queen spotting! Even a Mid-West American girl appreciates a good view of the Queen!

Cara said...

I badly want those tights.

Faux Naif said...

NO FUCKING WAY. AH, SUCH JEALOUSY.

Becca Jane said...

I love the tights, and also am jealous that you got to see the queen! so cool! She was here in winnipeg but I had commitments that prevented me from going, sadly.

Robyn said...

Congrats on seeing the Queen! She hardly ever ventures out west. no fair! :D

Rachel said...

The Queen! Yay! So glad you got to see her, you definitely look excited. And really, awkward stares and comments on that outfit? It's not even that crazy!

trina's reality said...

Your sunflower dress is genius! I really want a similar one now!

Ice D. said...

i want to have calculator legs too.

Tbh, I think the monarchy is kind of irrelevant - they're not elected (and if they were, Stephen Fry would be King, NO CONTEST!), and they're supposed to be our national representatives but they only accurately reflect the (now declining) aristocracy. And it can't be that anybody still believes the "ordained by God" b.s. that is used to justify monarchy. It's such a weird thing.

*climbs down off soapbox* But you're smiling! And your dress is lovely! So, in a really roundabout way perhaps the monarchy does have a purpose!

love love love the second outfit!

ZombieLace said...

Aww love your little white loafers with your sun dress, I'm sure if the queen had seen you she would have called you poppet and had you in for tea before you had to be back to the orphanage.

diane said...

The Queen's outfits have nothing on yours. It must have been a bunch of country bumpkins who said awkward things about those tights.
I can't quite pinpoint the difference in your hair, but it looks great.

Kevin said...

I had a feelin' that you'd rock the sunflower sundress (sunsquared) for the Queen's visitation. Am I a mind reader or am I just on the same mindset? It looks rad on you!

Xu Box said...

My god, those outfits are beautiful! I especially like the sunflower dress. And I just can't get enough of those enigmatic leggings!

Anna said...

I love both outfits! Those tights are so freaking awesome!

louise or valentine said...

im super jealous b/c wherever u are, it cant be as hot s nyc is today...

Anonymous said...

so i live in staten island and THE QUEEN CAME TO NYC TODAY and i wanted to go see her but it was like 108 degrees so i was like.. eff that. haha btw i love your blog/style! you're very inspiring! =]

AshleyDoll said...

yeah those awkward ppl don't know what they're talking about.

Marlena said...

That sunflower dress looks even more amazing each time I see it! I'm seriously considering wearing sun flowery things now ;)

Adore the second outfit too! It looks so comfy *.* I wish it wasn't so damn hot outside otherwise I would totally be wearing a sweater dress right now!

Pansy said...

Those tights are fantastic!!

Aattlee said...

YAY for meeting the queen! I agree- the way she 'is' gives her so much more interest and importance than BS ever could muster! And extra brownie points for those tights, they're awesome! In a weird way, those comments are the best, because you know you're doing something that nobody else is doing and being RECOGNIZED for it. Too hell with them, you look awesome. :)

Damsels said...

i dont think theres anything weird about the tights to be honest .i love them .. how exciting .. a real life queen .. thats a once in a lifetime thing

Sister Wolf said...

I love the Queen. Check this out: My brother in law once wrote a speech for the Queen...and she fucking said it! Isn't that awesome?!

I think that makes me 2 degrees from the Queen, and since you "know" me, that makes you 3 degrees from Her.

hello birdy said...

Perfect outfits, love the flower dress!

I live in Windsor where the Queen has her castle which is her weekend residence so seen her a few times now, love to see what she's wearing each time though!

Jazzabelle said...
