Queen Letizia may be royalty, but she recycles her clothes just like the rest of us.

For an appearance at Spain’s Monastery of Santo Toribio de Liebana, Queen Letizia wore a checkered Hugo Boss top that she’d worn for a previous event. But the Spanish royal made the top more summery, switching out black trousers for snow white cigarette pants. She added a trendy element to her classic look with block-heeled shoes.

The queen’s outfit was relatively simple, but her coffee-colored shoes made the biggest statement with a mirrored heel.

The 44-year-old’s casual but put-together look worked perfectly for her schedule, which took her to Camaleño, Spain, to celebrate the Lebaniego Jubilee Year, a tradition that began in the 1500s. As part of the festivities, the queen and her husband, King Felipe VI, went to the Monastery of Santo Toribio de Liebana.

Queen Letizia had worn the same checked blouse in September, choosing it for the 2016 Accion Magistral Awards but styling it completely differently, with black trousers, instead of going for an all-white look like the one she put together today.
