She stood out in the crowd, a sea of red, white, and blue, and endless variations of the British flag. In the whole day, she was the only soul I saw dressed like the Queen on a typical day - not a public day, but the type of day she no doubt loves the best - walking in nature, with her husband and her Corgis, in tweeds, Wellington boots, and her iconic Hermes scarves.
Even tho I tried, I never did see her face. But just as I snapped this shot, she turned slightly, and it was like going back in time: this glimpse seemed to me that of a shy, young Elizabeth.
And where, you might wonder, is StreetStyle London? It's still here - all my posts going back to 2009 - but I've expanded into other areas that I love as much, or more: travel, the arts, film, architecture & design, as well as supporting emerging brands.. still a bit of fashion, still the odd streetstyle (not necessarily ODD.. you know what I mean) but if you're looking for yet another fashion blog, you've come to the wrong blog. Thanks to YOU, you lovely readers, I've had great fun with fashion, but it's time to move on down the road. Because, in the end, what is life, really, but one big road trip. So we might as well enjoy the ride.
