Free of Bullying Launched in Nurseries and Daycares

Tuesdays, May 24th

Crown Princess Mary attended the presentation of the Mary Foundation's anti-bullying project Free of Bullying in nurseries and daycares. The launching happened in Vallensbæk Beach. 

The Mary Foundation and their Free of Bullying-project
Free of Bullying (Fri for Mobberi) was launched back in 2007, created by the Mary Foundation and Save the Children (Red Barnet). The projects results preventing bullying has also led to an international interested. Then in 2011 they launched the program internationally under the name Free of Bullying which have helped children in Greenland, Estonia and Island.

Like the Mary Foundation, and Mary herself, the Free of Bullying project has been a huge success both in Denmark and abroad. Till today the project was created to the children of the age of kindergarten and pre-school, now it was taken to the next level: nurseries and daycares a little younger audience than what it has previously been. Free of Bullying is developed in collaboration of the Mary Foundation and Save the Children (Red Barnet) which both were represented at the launching taking place in Vallensbæk municipality. As the first municipality in Denmark, so far, Vallensbæk use project in every day's. The sun was shining when Mary around noon arrived to the nursery Sydstjernen where she was welcomed like a Queen by lots of children, Secretary General of Save the Children Jonas Keiding Lindholm and Major Henrik Rasmussen. Inside Mary sat down on a pillow on the floor enjoying some time with all the lovely children who all seemed very interested in this strange new woman with the dark hair. Along with the kids she was singing, dancing and playing with some of the tools from the anti bullying program especially the little purple Free of Bullying-teddy bear was really popular. Mary played along and had a really good time I think interacting with the kids. To me it seems like the most incredible atmosphere. Mary is literally just sitting on the floor paying attention to the kids and nothing else. I imagine her as a mother just like this. The brilliant weather gave an opportunity for all of them to enjoy some time with the Crown Princess out site on the playground. Grounded as always I think it was a great day for everybody. She also paid a visit to the daycare Stien just across the street where she was one more time welcomed by lots of excited children who all wanted a glimpse of the Crown Princess.

Mary just keep surprising me. Over and over again I think we see some outfits that are stylish, innovative and of course extremely beautiful. I know I keep saying that ever time but it's really what gets to me every single time I see new pictures of her. As always she amazed me with today's outfit. Simple and gracefully. I know for sure this is an outfit I will try out with the pair of similar trousers I have in my own wardrobe. Because that was exactly what she wore; a pair of brand new trousers featuring a significant white pattern. My gut told me that is had to be from Julie Fagerholt Heartmade, so I began searching and suddenly they appeared on my screen in the exact same colour with the same pattern. Finally I was right about something. As easy as it was for me to made a guess about the trousers, as troubled have I been trying to figure out where the new white blazer is from. She has worn a white blazer before, here, but it accrue not to be the same. So girls, any ideas? I've tried Zara, Massimo Dutti, By Malene Birger and Ganni. Matching the pattern of her trousers and white blazer she wore a plane white blouse. Can't really tell anything about it. Shoes are much more interest. A a pair of navy blue suede wedges I believe is a reuse, here & here & here. Unfortunately have these never really been ID'd. Some says L.K. Bennett and some says Christian Louboutin. I have claimed both but is not sure about any of them. I founded one at a brand called Bandolino which looks quite similar as well. What have you hear about these? I kinda love them pretty much. She added jewellery from Dulong Fine Jewelery to sparkle on a sunny day.

Day 4: The Women Deliver Conference 2016 - Final Day

Tuesday, May 19th
Crown Princess Mary attended as patron the last day with the 4th Women Deliver Conference 2016 in Bella Center, Copenhagen.

The Women Deliver 2016 Conference
From May 16-19th is the worlds largest international conference on girls and women's health, rights, and well-being held in Denmark. This is the Women Deliver Conference 2016 which Crown Princess Mary is patron of. With a focus on how to implement the Sustainable Development Goals and subjects as maternal and reproductive for girls and women, 5,500 representatives from 169 different nations are gathered in Copenhagen. Read more about the conference here.

Program: Copenhagen
  • 3:00 pm. Crown Princess Mary attended the Closing of Conference: Be the Change You Want to See.

It has been four really long days for Mary and the 5,500 attendances who have participated in the 4th Women Deliver Conference 2016 which have taken place in Bella Center in Copenhagen this year. As patron of the conference Mary has had a lot to do. She has met so many people, heard different stories and had the chance to met foundations and organizations working for girls and women all over the world. Along with Denmark, are representatives gathered from 169 different countries all to share knowledge on who to improve girls and women's rights, health and well-being. Before attending the final event of the conference, she joined a few meeting with among others Birgitte Handwerk who is a fundraiser for the organization Orchid Project, fighting to stop female genital mutilation. Mary also met the Belgian artist Kity Mbiango. Some of his women's portraits were exhibited at the Bella Center as Mary experienced herself when she was given a guided tour by the artist. At 3:00 pm. local time, was it time for Mary and all the participants to close the conference, the best possible way. This was done with lots of sining, dancing and happy faces. Along with Princess Mabel of the Netherlands, Mary danced in first row and enjoyed artists entertaining on the big stage. It is really just lovely to see all these people sining and dancing. I can't imagine a better way ending such as successful 4th Women Deliver Conference and celebrate the life of girls and women.

As successful as the conference I think her outfits the last four days have been nothing else than a true success. The final day was no exception at all. Looking gorgeous in a bright blue dress, Mary amazed me with what she had chosen to wear. I'm pretty sure we have seen the combination of the blue dress and that emerald green brooch before: on March 10th 2015 when she attended both 8th Public Private Dialogue Workshop 2015 and a painting exhibition with the Home Guard. So what do you say? -is she actually wearing the same combo? These two colours, blue and green, compliment each other really really well. Makes both colours stand out beautifully. I have never been able to find out about neither dress or brooch but if you have some idea who could have designed two pieces I would love to hear from you. Maybe your idea leads me to the one we are looking for. In another wonderful brown colour, she added her lester tote bag from Ralph Lauren, a classic and outstanding accessory I never get tired of. She also stunned me with the other accessories she had chosen: a golden Cartier watch, diamond studs as well as three diamond rings from among others Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. Love her curly hair which makes a great match to the rest of her outfit. What shoes she is wearing? -well I don't know. Unfortunately, I haven't found any pictures showing them.

I really want to thank you for following the Women Deliver Conference 2016 with me here at Styleofmary. It has been a honor to share all of it with you girls! Keep up everything good about your life as a girl and woman.

Mixed News

Last Thursday on May 12th, Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary hosted a dinner for the international galley owners from Art Basel in Frederik VIII's Palace, Amalienborg, in Copenhagen, here. Before the dinner, Frederik showed the special invited guests around and told all about the art work decorating the walls in Frederik VIII's Palace which were made when the palace was renovated. Mary was dressed beautifully in an emerald green Prada dress and nude pumps. As always, perfectly dressed!

About a week ago or so, appeared a new picture of Mary and the twins on Instagram or this is where I spotted it. Either is Mary taken the twins to or from daycare on the family's special bike, I would even tend to say it has become a characteristic for the Crown Prince Couple picking up their children from daycare on this bike. This time she was caught on camera with a happy smile on her face dressed casual in a striped blouse and slim black trousers. Her hair was loose and her eyes protected by classy black Prada shades. A lovely picture!

Recently Mary visited one of the world's poorest countries Burkina Faso along with Foreign Minister Kristian Jensen to see for herself what she has been working with over the last seven years: a world with more equality for girls and women. To follow her on this journey was for me very special, like something we had never seen before despite this is just one of many abroad visits. So when I discovered that a camera crew had followed her in Burkina Faso I was thrilled, no better way for her to tell all about her experiences. Then the day before yesterday Crown Princess Mary's Mission was broadcasted on Danish TV. Mary talks about her trip and why it's so important for her to continue fighting for gender equality. I would recommend you to watch the broadcast, I was moved by what I saw. I'm sure you will too.

Crown Princess Mary attending the Women Deliver Conference 2016

Despite how early it was, Mary was ready to attend one more day with the 4th Women Deliver Conference 2016 hosted by Denmark this year. It is something we have waited for the last year or so and now the conference is soon over, but not quite yet. We still have one days left, May 19th, before it all ends. The first two days have been great and maybe a little overwhelming to especially Mary who, as you know, is patron of the conference. It has been, so far, three busy days for the patron. She has attended numerous sessions, participated in workshops, spoken at all kinds of events and met a lot of people all representing each and their area. Along with the 5,500 attendances, I think Mary has had some quite interesting days with lots of inspiration and new networks for future collaboration. It is a subject with so many different aspects, which requires both time and commitment to work with -something she certainly has done over the last 7 years working in Denmark but also abroad. She was among others recently in Burkina Faso where she saw with their own eyes what she is fighting for: a world with more equality for girls and women. Which there has been made a poignant broadcast about called Crown Princess Mary's Mission, which was shown yesterday on Danish TV, where she talks about her journey in Burkina Faso and how important it is that we continue to fight for gender equality. On this, the third day, Mary began her day already at 6:50 am. local time meeting with Amplify Change. From that moment she arrived, her day was packed with places to be and people to speak with. She also accompanied her husband when he, as IOC member, spoke at DIF/IOC side event, such as they wrote on Women Deliver for Good Signing Wall together. Another busy day with Women Deliver.

With yesterday's outfit I expected way more than what we got, not that I do not like her outfit because I really do (!), but yesterday's look was to me more than splendid. Maybe my expectations are too high? But on the third day she was classy dressed in a combo we have seen a few times before, but it works really well with that white pleated blouse and paisley JOSEPH skirt. Gives me a happy feeling of summer when she is wearing that skirt. So this she matched with her beloved grey python pumps from Gianvito Rossi. Think she was one of her first pair of Gianvito Rossi shoes, clearly remember when I confused tried to identify them which I actually did and from then we have seen her multiple times in these lovely pumps. Embracing the modern style she had chosen some incredible pieces of jewellery; golden earrings from Dulong Fine Jewellery featuring a large white pearl, one of her diamond bracelets matching the rings from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen and of course a bracelet from the same designer as the earrings. To keep track on time, Mary wore her expensive golden Cartier watch. What we know have left is the dazzling beige leather tote which of course is one of her Prada bags. An energetic and polish look that works every single time!

Crown Princess Mary attending the culture evening in Tivoli

Around 7 o'clock, it was finally time for the Crown Princess to attend the days last event: a culture evening in Tivoli, Copenhagen. An event all 5,500 participants of the Women Deliver Conference 2016 were invited to attend just like Mary. Despite she had been on the go all day long, Mary was in a brilliant mood. The participants from 169 different countries all over the world got the chance to see for themselves what a country Denmark is and meet some of the Danish organizations working to makes life better for girls and women, also abroad. Among other were KVINFO and the Mothers Help represented ready to tell all about their work. Along with Foreign Minister Kristian Jensen, enjoyed Mary one more evening meeting a lot of new people, even some she has met at a previous occasion in her everyday work as Crown Princess of Denmark trying to me Denmark even better. With this major event in Tivoli ended a successful day for Mary. Only one more day left and everything she helped planning is over.

Unfortunately we only have very few pictures from her last attendance in Tivoli where she was present at the culture evening along with the 5,500 special invited participants of the conference. Luckily I was able to find enough to get a glimpse of her outfit, which I already love! The reason is simple, because that checkered kimono is one amazing statement piece I adore! She wore it for the first time when she was interviewed in Berlingske, a Danish newspaper, on violence against women. So far I haven't been able to identify the checkered kimono, do you have any idea who could be the designer? National as international, I would like to hear your thoughts. A little untraditionally she wore it with a thin snake skin belt but a pretty nice combo anyway. With loose hair, a natural but stylish makeup she adore me with a pair of Jewlscph earrings and the other jewellery from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen and Dulong Fine Jewelry. My guess about her wearing black trousers and black pumps was correct, that was exactly what she did. I believe the pumps are from SAND Copenhagen but really it's juts a guess. After all she has many pairs of black pumps very similar to each other. To me it looks like her SAND pumps.
