The Mary Foundation backpacks

Tuesday, May 23rd

Crown Princess Mary visited LEGO Charity in Billund, to participate in packing the Mary Foundation backpacks.

The day before, Crown Princess Mary attended the opening of the European Emergency Medical Services 2017, here, and the following day she gave a helping hand with packing backpacks. Something she has been doing since 2008. The project is made in collaboration with, among others, the Mary Foundation and LEGO. These backpacks are given to all children in shelters in both Greenland, Denmark and the Faroe Islands. They contain anything from toothbrush, hairbrush, towel to teddy bears and books. Everything to make life a little easier for children in shelters. All this to say that the Crown Princess visited LEGO Charity in Billund, participating in packing backpacks along with former LEGO employees. To me it has always, and always will be, a pleasure to see Mary attend this annual event. She seems so sincere and really makes an effort trying to help. The pictures just makes me smile!

Packing backpacks of course takes the right outfit -I'm not quite sure what the right outfit is but I adore what she has chosen to wear this time. She looks lovely in her new pin-striped blouse featuring the most incredible cuffs and a smashing detail around the neck. I am really troubled with this new piece. I would like to find out where it comes from but now I have no more ideas where to look. Anything I should try? Whoever designed this I just want to say: "well done!" Looks just fantastic. When I found this, here, I can't stop thinking that Zara is the one I'm looking for. The coat also looks new to me. She matched her new striped blouse with a pair of black trousers and her brown leather bag from Ralph Lauren. Every time we see it, I keep falling more and more in love with it. Without being exactly sure, I'm believe she is wearing a new pair of Gianvito Rossi pumps in a lovely navy blue colour. As jewellery Mary has chosen diamond earrings from Hartmann's, her beloved Cartier bracelet, a few diamond rings from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen and of course a second bracelet from Dulong Fine Jewelry (or at least, I think so). Personally, I can't get enough of this outfit. Makes my wanna play with different shades of blue for my next outfit! Time to embrace spring colours, materials and silhouettes.

The European Emergency Medical Services 2017

Monday, May 22nd

Crown Princess Mary attended the opening of the European Emergency Medical Services 2017 (EMS2017) which took place at Tivoli Hotel & Congress Center, Copenhagen. 

It was as guest of honor and patron Crown Princess Mary attended the grand opening of the European Emergency Medical Services 2017, also abbreviated to EMS2017. The EMS2017 is a three-day conference where the latest research in the prehospital- and emergency medical field are presented. Researcher's from all over Europe are participating in the conference to, among others, create a new network and share knowledge. The Crown Princess arrived in an excellent mood and was warmly welcomed by a flower girl with a large bouquet of flowers. She was the one opening the conference with an inspiring speech. During her day at the Tivoli Hotel & Congress Center in Copenhagen, Mary was introduced to several new initiatives developed to make a difference in the prehospital- and emergency medical field. To me it looks like the Crown Princess was quite impressed of what she saw.

Usually when Mary is attending events like these we do not see her wear anything like this. But I am absolutely in love with her new navy blue dress! Can't tell where it is from yet but it makes me think of Prada. Oh.. it's so dazzling. Her new dress features some kind of cape in same colour and material as the rest of the dress. Looks just magnificent next to her dark hair and fair skin. She even matched the blue balloons. I would love to be the one telling you who designed Mary's new dress, but so far I can't. The way she accessorized her outfit makes the dress even more stunning. As jewellery Mary had chosen a pair of golden Dulong Fine Jewelry earrings and matching white pearl pendants, then her golden Cartier bracelet, another Dulong Fine Jewelry bracelet and a couple of Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen diamond rings. Not to forget that green and dusty pink brooch which I still have no clue where is from. I have been very troubled finding out what pair of shoes she was wearing -if they are new or reused. A closer look confirmed my suspicion; it is a reused pair of Gianvito Rossi pumps. These were first seen the photo series of Eurowoman back in 2016, here, where she wore one of my absolute favourite outfits! Last but not least, she was wearing one of her nude clutches from Naledi Copenhagen

Arla Foods Global Innovation Centre & The Womenomics Global Impact Award 2017

Tuesday, May 16th

Crown Princess Mary attended the launch of Arla Foods Global Innovation Centre, a new multifunctional innovation center for Arla's product development. The opening took place in Aarhus. Later in the afternoon, the Crown Princess received The Womenomics Global Impact Award 2017 on occasion of the Womenomics Business Conference taking place in Copenhagen.

Time is running and I am sorry you had to wait this long for me to finish this post. But better late than never, so... Crown princess Mary was the guest of honor at the grand opening of the new Arla Foods Global Innovation Centre in Aarhus. These new facilities are a multifunctional centre for Arla's product development. And who else to invite for the opening than the Crown Princess herself? She arrived in rainy weather on Tuesday to attend the launch. Despite the weather, Mary was in a great spirit at the opening. She was kindly welcomed and given flowers from a very shy little flower-girl. But as always, Mary took plenty of time getting the little girl comfortable with the situation. The red carpet was replaced with a green and the red ribbon replaced with a leaf vine. A little unusual. The Crown Princess was also given a tour around the building to see for herself some of the improvement Arla are working on.

The Crown Princess was a busy lady on Tuesday. In the morning she attended the grand launch of the new Arla Foods Global Innovation Centre in Aarhus. In the afternoon Mary was back in Copenhagen to attend the presentation of The Womenomics Global Impact Award 2017 -she attended both as guest of honor and recipient of the award! The Crown Princess is given the award because of her work to improve health conditions, rights and well-being for girls and women in Denmark as well as abroad. Other than the Crown Princess; Pia Vennelund received the Womenomics Leadership Award 2017 and Ida Auken was given the Womenomics Influencer Award 2017. Congratulations to all three women! They are all doing a great and honorable work for women all over the world. On occasion of her attendance Mary gave a remarkable speech. I am in no doubt that is was a wonderful day for the Crown Princess. 

At both events during Tuesday, Mary was dressed in a simple black and white outfit. Other than once piece of clothes, I believe all of it are reused. Though we have seen most of these pieces before, it looks brand new because of the combination. Attending the opening of a new centre and receiving an award, takes an outfit like this one -classy, elegant and sophisticated. She matched a pleated Designers Remix skirt with a (new?) white blouse and her black Helmut Lang blazer featuring a leather collar. It was during a trip to New York back in 2016 Mary wore the midi skirt for the first time and we have not seen it since -till now, here. Love how the lengths of each piece makes her outfit look very modern and chic. I am not quite sure if the white blouse is new or also reused. In my opinion it looks new and the style reminds me a lot of a Hugo Boss design. All though I have not been able to find the right model. Do you have any specific designer in mind? She had accessorized her outfit with white pearls from Dulong Fine Jewelry and one of her Carlend Copenhagen clutches. Perfectly matching the black and white pleated skirt, Mary was wearing cap-toe pumps from Gianvito Rossi. Anything you would wear? Think she looks great!
