As committed as yesterday did Mary, as the future Queen of Denmark and member of the High-Level Task Force for ICPD, attended in a special event hosted by the American Hemophilia Society, National Hemophilia Foundation, and Novo Nordisk who have collaborated to improve the possibilities for treatment and care for people suffering from hemophilia and blood disorders. Mary was the guest of honor, meeting with members from the local New York City hemophilia community and members of the U.S. bleed Association youth group. A perfect way for her to see results of the partnership between Danish Novo Nordisk and NHF (National Hemophilia Foundation) and of course to met some of those who have tried the treatment on their own body. It gives a good insight in how they have made progress but also where and what can be done better in the future. Mary showed a sincere interest and listened to all the stories she was told during her visit. In the afternoon she attended, as member of the High-Level Task Force for ICPD, the "Fulfilling the Promise of Equality" meeting and around noon the panel discussion on HIV, gender equality and sexual and reproductive health and rights, all to advocate girls and women's rights, health and well-being. I truly think we have something to be proud of, Mary is during an incredible job with her commitment to give girls and women better opportunities for a life without among others violence, safe childbirths, work, the opportunity for girls to go to school etc. With no chance of speaking about politics, according to Danish laws, Mary often speaks about topics that are more or less political, and she has to find another angle on the topic so she can "interfere" in the discussion anyway. I'm sure it takes lots of advices from advisors and similar, and of course lots of time to write and rewrite a right speech which summarize everything, she and the organization she represents, stands for. In my opinion this has been a successful two-days visit in New York with the CSW58 - Commission on the Status of Women.
Because Mary is such colour loving woman, I would love to have seen her wear a little more colours at this trip maybe just a coloured nail polish or a pair of pumps in a bright playful colour. That would have been decent, classy and elegant at the same time without her being overdressed. So maybe I had hoped for something a little more colourful, which does not mean that I didn't like this days outfit because I really did. A stylish workwear outfit with classic elements as the blazer and pencil skirt. A black blazer like the one she wore I think every women should have in their wardrobe, an essential you can't live without. Wearable for both skirts as well as trousers, jeans and dresses -day and night. She combined her blazer with a printed Hugo Boss pencil skirt and what I believe is a light grey belt to match the colours of the skirt. Again we saw her in the black pointed pumps from Danish SAND Copenhagen, a really choice in my opinion especially with the tights and blazer. To spice up the look, she wore black pearl earrings from Marianne Dulong and her golden Shamballa Jewels bracelet. Imagine this look with a colourful clutch or maybe her bicolor pointed Prada pumps? Wauw this would have been great. I really like who her hair is simply wrap round in the back of her head, looks beautiful! So two days with great inspiration to those of you who are looking for your next workwear outfit. I think both these days show perfectly how to be well dressed without look boring at work.
