See ya soon


No more rain, rubber boots or summer without even a glimpse of the sun. Now it is my turn to enjoy some summer with my family. Tomorrow morning I will be off for two-three weeks to enjoy this years vacation in Croatia. Can't wait. It is something I have been looking forward to the last couple of months and now it's finally time to go. So, I am going to spend my last couple of hours in Denmark celebrating my birthday with my loved ones and packing what's left on my (very long) list. Something you can't live without when going on vacation? I can't go anywhere with a least four books, my sunglasses and lots of sunscreen. I have no idea how you spend your vacation, but I hope you have had plenty of time with family and friend during summer time. If you haven't already been on vacation, then I wish you a fabulous holiday with many new memories and pictures to remember it all.

Not much has happened the last month because the Crown Prince family has also enjoyed some time on their own. First they joined Queen Margrethe at Gråsten castle for a couple of weeks, then something a little more exotic in Greece and now some days on board the royal yacht Dannebrog, here. Because the family is back from vacation while I'm away, I have made of list of blogs etc. to keep you updated with the latests news. A new feature on the blog is called 'calendar', here all her upcoming events can be found. This is how you will be updated on all her future events from now on.

So, with a "Happy holiday everybody!" I wish you all the best the next couple of weeks. Take care of each other, yourself and your loved ones. Till, then -have fun and make lots of new memories.

Vacation on board Dannebrog

After the Crown Prince couple and all four children spend a few weeks at Gråsten castle along with Queen Margrethe, here, they enjoyed some time at Kos in Greece. Now the Crown Prince couple is on an unofficial travel on board the royal yacht Dannebrog along with their children. They will be visiting several different places in Denmark.

August 7th
On Monday the royal family payed a visit to Møns Klint on the island of Møn. Three pictures have been published on Facebook from the visit with caption telling that they looked at fossils on the beach and visited GeoCenter at Møn. Nothing tells for how long the trip will last, but all kids are going back to school within the next week or so. 


Tuesday 8th
On board Dannebrog the Crown Prince couple and their four children payed a visit to Faaborg. Among others, the royal family visited the art museum Faaborg Museum during their day. They were also spotted walking in the streets of Faaborg. Crown Prince Frederik was the one handling the boat from Dannebrog to Faaborg harbor. 

Coloured shoes

The last couple of weeks you haven't heard much of me, which of course is because the Crown Prince couple are on vacation along with all four children such as many other Danish families. The couple spend some time at Gråsten castle along with Queen Margrethe a few weeks back and they also enjoyed their vacation at the island Kos, Greece. In about a week or so, it is finally my turn to enjoy a couple of weeks of vacation with my family. Something I have been looking forward to in a very long time. The weather has been rather cold and... I tend to say sad in Denmark this year. We have only had the pleasure of the sun very little, which is also why I (even more) look forward to my vacation far away from home. I hope all of you have had the chance to enjoy some time with your family and friends during summer. Well, that was much info at once and actually not the main reason why I write this post. 

I was going through old pictures in my archive of the Crown Princess and realized how many pair of, what I call "happy-colour-shoes", she got. Red, yellow, blue, white, green etc. All colours are represented in her wardrobe when it comes to shoes. Then I thought: I have to share some pictures with the rest of you. Maybe they will make your mood as great as mine? In rainy summer weather we need something to make us happy. Am I right? So, I have gathered pictures of her magnificent and outstanding "happy-colour-shoe" collection with the hope that they will make your day even better.

#FashionFlashback

First of all I want to thank those of you who have been so kind to answer my questionnaire. Your answers are very important and helpful for me. If anyone would like to participate with their answers as well, then you're very welcome, here.

Now on to something else. I assume you enjoyed my first fashion flashback post, here. At least that's what I hear. So, I think it is time for another one. This time I will bring you back to February 27th 2012. Around that time the Crown Princess attended a two days official visit to Washington. She was suppose to, among others, attend the opening ceremony of the 2nd World Conference of Women's Shelters at Gaylord National Resort Hotel and Convention Center. The Crown Princess was present during several meeting. She also entered the stage to give a speech. I remember her speech very. It was remarkable and it received a lot of applause from the listeners sitting in front of her.

The event at Gaylord National Resort Hotel and Convention Center took place in the evening. And of course the Crown Princess was dressed for the occasion. She dazzled in a black Hugo Boss blouse and khaki dress pants. Non of these item had been seen before, nor afterwards. Her outfit was accessorized with drop earrings from Jewlscph, a Prada belt and leopard pumps from Dolce & Gabbana. Embracing a chic evening look she also wore a black clutch and that orange spotted scarf. The makeup focused on her sincere eyes and made her look even more beautiful. Her hair was in a half updo that clearly show -it does not have to be any more complicated to look great.

How to reuse your wardrobe like Mary

Years ago when I started 'Style of Mary' I spend a lot of time sharing pictures of when and where the Crown Princess had worn her clothes, accessories etc. before, in case of reused pieces. It is something I have not been doing for years. With the rather limited range of pictures available, I have had a hard time making these posts. Now, I faced the challenge and this is what I ended up with. Crown Princess Mary is by no doubt my biggest source of inspiration, also when it comes to how to reuse clothes and accessories even down to hairstyles and makeup. So, meanwhile the Crown Prince couple and all four children enjoy their vacation at Gråsten castle, here, I think time is up for you to get inspired by the Crown Princess and her reuse outfits.
