How to use: White

Summer is here and it's time for all of us to flash the most incredible outfits! So I thought why not share some inspirational pictures with you of how Mary uses different colours and prints. That is when I got the idea of these "How to use"-posts. One of the most trendy colours, if you can call it a colour, is white. To me it's the indication of spring and summer when it's time to wear plain white clothes. All dependent on what you like, white can easily go from a little boring to super chic! Over the years Mary has shown us plenty of outfits with white as the main colour. I hope the outfits I'm now going to share with you will be an inspiration for you girls when to pick your next outfit and you're considering wearing white, one way or another. Stay fashionable!






The Royal Ascot in England

Wednesday, June 15th

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary attended the second day of Royal Ascot at Ascot Racecourse in London, England, which wasn't officially announced. 

The Royal Ascot
... has since 1711, from the time of Queen Anne, taken place at Ascot Racecourse and is the centerpiece of Ascot's year. Every year Queen Elizabeth II is attending the leading horse race with her family. A major (fashion) event covered by the world press as one of the finest events. It is tradition that the British family members arrived by carriages before the actual horse race takes place. And of course they have their own dress code, here. Read much more about the Royal Ascot here

It came as a huge surprise to all of us when Frederik and Mary suddenly appeared in the third carriage at the annual Royal Ascot at Ascot Racecourse in London. Nothing had been announced and because it is the first time they have ever attended the horse race it was really a surprise to me -as well as it might have been to all of you. Sometimes a surprise is just pure happiness. At least it was to me! Total arrived four carriages paraded for all to see with some of the world's most prominent royals. The first one with among others the Queen of the United Kingdom and her husband the Duke of Edinburgh. They were followed by Prince Charles of Wales and his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall. In the third carriage we had Frederik and Mary who were accompanied by Prince Edward, Earl of Wessex, and Sofie Countess of Wessex. Last but not least arrived the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in the forth carriage. Here. It really doesn't get any better. From the second the Danish Royal Couple arrived to the horse race I have the feeling they enjoy every second of it. We were constantly seeing Mary laughing and having a good time while her husband mingled with the rest of the British royal family. Is it too much to say that this is the place to meet when you are a part of a royal family? Well, it's also a horse race and did Mary actually have the winning ticket, here? This is one **** of a debut for our favourite royal couple (sorry about my language). Something most of us wouldn't in a million year believe could ever happened. It did. Then I like surprises. So many posts have already been written about everything that happened, so this is all you get from me. Happy reading some of the other great articles! I have found some I think you'll like.

Update: And then of course I have to share this photo here shared on the royal family's Instagram profile of the couple attending the race. Isn't it just lovely?!? -Mary in her red dress and Frederik with that huge grey hat!


The Royal Ascot is differently more than winning tickets. It's also about finding the right outfit to wear and Mary did fantastic job in her red Marc By Marc Jacob dress! Which indeed is red and not orange. A gorgeous dress featuring the most incredible details like the cap sleeves and pleated fabric. I'm so please to see her wear that again which I think is the third time now. Never get tired of that dress. I noticed Mary had chosen a dress slightly shorter than the others. Like the dress she wore some other really interesting pieces as the headpiece created by talented milliner Jane Taylor. Sure you all remember it from the wedding in Monaco, here, and from Princess Estelle's christening in 2012, here. Keeping the dress center of attention, everything else are quickly forgotten. That's where I enter the picture of remind you to look at every detail of this outfit because she really wore some interesting pieces as the new Gianvito Rossi shoes. Have you seen them?! I think they do perfectly with the dress and occasion she is attending. Hadn't Mary worn these I would never have fallen in love with them. But they look soooooo.... lovely. It is with help from Heaven and Kate I'm able to share the info of where her new fishnet printed shoes are from. Thanks you two! Matching both shoes and hairpiece she wore the amazing beige clutch from Naledi Copenhagen which, once again, must be so proud, here. No complete outfit without jewellery and Mary was wearing plenty of stunning jewellery attending the Royal Ascot among others a new Cartier bracelet -their Love Bracelet. Maybe a gift from her husband on their 12th anniversary? Then she wore another golden chain bracelet from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen featuring a moonstone pendant and a large Dulong Fine Jewelry ring. My guess is that her new, fabulous (!!), earrings are designed by Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen as well. If you ask me, this can't be the last time Frederik and Mary attend The Royal Ascot.

Naming Tanker "Stena Weco Impulse"

Monday, June 13th

Crown Princess Mary attended the naming of one of Weco Shippings ships followed by a lunch which took place at Langelinje in Copenhagen. The ship was given the name Stena Weco Impulse.


Again I have managed to get behind on posting but I haven't forgot you at all but things have been a little busy for me the last few days. Please, bear with me. This is really a post I've been looking forward to share with you girls because when Mary attends these "christening ceremonies" she is always in a excellent mood and she really was on Monday, two days ago. It was with a huge smile on her face when she arrived to the harbor at Langelinje in Copenhagen. She was warmly welcomed by Johan Wedell-Wedellsborg, chairman of the shipping company Weco Shipping who's tanker was named at the ceremony. They two of them differently seemed to enjoy each others company -laughing, joking and clear having fun. It was with a short speech Mary introduced the soon named tanker behind her and with a smashed champagne bottle the Crown Princess named the major tanker Stena Weco Impulse. Celebrated with balloons, music and confetti the ship got its name. To end the christening ceremony Mary attended, among others, a lunch. Tables where beautifully decorated perfect to host a lunch for a member of the royal family. I think Mary had a really lovely day at Langelinje.


Now we are talking! After a less impressing outfit (in my opinion) when she attended The Reumert Award 2016 on Sunday 12th, I have to say this is just incredible! I am simply speechless. She looks so comfortable, with that certain twinkle in her eyes I love so much about her. A stunning outfit you can only love. The new white coat looks amazing on her featuring some really interesting cuffs -60s inspired? And the length is... oh smashing. So far I haven't been able to find out where it's from but I read somewhere By Malene Birger is suggested. I thought about maybe DAY Birger et Mikkelsen (pretty close) or one of the international designers as JOSEPH or Massimo Dutti but unfortunately I didn't find a thing to prove my ideas. Which designers do you have in mind for this wonderful new white coat? I can't wait to see her wear it again, maybe with something a little more colourful? - don't you think that would do well together. Underneath I saw a glimpse of either a creamy white lace skirt or dress. Reminds me of one of her lace skirts from Julie Fagerholt Heartmade but it's really not easy to find her old creations. She perfectly accessorized it with a pair of patent leather Gianvito Rossi pumps, seen once before, and that overwhelmingly Susanne Juul wide-brimmed hat! Wauw. Did you see the huge power pink flower on the side? It matched both pumps and Bottega Veneta clutch perfectly. With earrings from Dulong Fine Jewelry, rings and a bracelet from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen this has to be one of my favourite outfits this year -so far. Everything just looks beautiful!

The Reumert Award / Årets Reumert 2016

Crown Princess Mary attended this years Reumert Award 2016 show which was live broadcasted from the Opera House in Copenhagen

The Reumert Award / Årets Reumert 2016
The award goes back to 1998 where it was established by Bikubenfonden aiming to focus on live performing art in Denmark, to honor some of the talented Danish artists and arouse the interest for theater. Every year are 22 various awards presented and given to among actors, singers, dancers, stage designers etc. which are handed over in a live broadcast. This year, 2016, the Reumert Awards are given for the 18th time.

The Reumert Award show is something I really look forward to every single year. I have watched the show now for quite many years and I truly enjoy the show. I would so much like to watch more live performances, plays in the theatre etc. but unfortunately am I far away from this cultural world, so for me to follow singers, actors and artists this one evening is just great. You get a perfect of what is going on, on stages across Denmark whatever you like classical music or innovative children's theatre. Prominent guests were all invited to watch the show which was broadcasted live on Sunday evening taken place in the Opera House in Copenhagen right across where the Crown Prince Couple lives. This is only important to know because another prominent woman who attended the show was the Crown Princess herself. She arrived, in a really good mood, as the last person right before the show was about to begin. Along with all the perfect dressed guests Mary enjoyed an evening honoring some of Denmark's most talented artists. This year 22 statuettes, designed by artist John Kørner, were handed over which have a combined value of DKK 1 million. It was actor Rasmus Btoft, actress Bodil Jørgensen and Danish comedian Nikolaj Stockholm who made sure both audience and TV viewers had a great evening. Usually we get a glimpse or two of Mary during the show but not this time. She was also on her own not accompanied by her husband who usually attends with her.

Despite it is the performing arts show of the year we only have seen very few pictures of Mary. Sadly. But I will not hide how surprised and maybe also shocked I am of what she wore on Sunday in the Opera House. She was more appropriately dressed than many others but that new dress was not really a success if you ask me. I'm still not sure where it's from -maybe Prada or Miu Miu, suggested by a reader- but I do not understand how it is possible to create something so... strange. And some strange colours to combine. Or maybe it's the embellishment on her upper body? I'm not sure what is wrong. One good thing about this new dress has to be the length. I can't imagine how it would look if it had been floor length. Am I the only who think this dress is a little... different? As much as she did not convince me with her choice of dress, I'm totally in love with her accessories! Drop-shaped Dulong Fine Jewelery earrings, a matching diamond bracelet and her golden leather pumps from Manolo Blahnik. That is just perfect for a night like this. Looks good on her when she walked down the red carpet arriving to the Opera House. Beautifully was also Mary's curly hairstyle. Quite simple and at the same time so elegant. Over all she is looking really pretty. I can't wait to hear what you have to say about this outfit. Is the dress the most beautiful you have ever seen or...? The reason why I do not mention the clutch is because I am no longer sure where it's from. I've believed in Judith Leiber for a long time but then suddenly came the idea that it could be from a brand called Uterqüe -very much loved by Queen Letizia of Spain.
