Crown Princess Mary visiting the Marie Stopes, Mothers2Mothers and Love Life Youth Centre

Mary began her day early because at 9:00 am. she arrived to the Marie Stopes clinic followed by a visit to the Mothers2Mothers clinic. The Crown Princess was in a splendid mood, something you will see if you take a look at all the amazing pictures of her from the second day in South Africa. Though she is on this official visit to focus on serious topics such as healthcare and sexual rights; it is done with a warmth and sincerity. It is like she makes everyone feel comfortable in their own skin, with nothing else than her presence. Also something you have noticed? And when you do not think it can't get any better, it gets better! Because when she visited the Love Life Youth Centre we saw her smile, laugh and even dance. Made my day a *** lot better to watch that. Judging by everything I have seen so far, Mary really really enjoy herself yesterday!

When it come to clothes; Africa means colourful pattern and prints. Multi colour maxi skirts and dresses, lots of jewellery and everything that is just too laud to wear in Denmark. Time for Mary to wear printed dressed and that is exactly what she did. During her second day in Cape Town she was dressed in a reused dress from the Spanish designer Massimo Dutti worn with a brown leather belt and a pair of matching pumps. The shoes are old and used a several previous occasions. First I heard something about Christian Louboutin, but I doubt. I still do not have the right answer to reply your question on who the designer really is, though I have a strong feeling they are from Jimmy Choo. Take a look at the one I have found down below and tell me what's on your mind. Have I found the right one already? Or do I have to keep looking. The combination with this dress and those Louise Grønlykke earrings is not new. As she wore the golden Shamballa Jewels bracelet, she had chosen her Orit Elhanati necklace and Marianne Dulong bracelet one more time. I was a bit surprised to see that golden leaf ring again. It is from I'm Jewel and one of her reused rings. Another wonderful outfit that makes me think I need a similar dress and a pair of brown look-a-like pumps.

Crown Princess Mary attending Danish Design Business Mission networking reception

But her day does not end here. In the evening, around 7:00 pm, Crown Princess Mary arrived to attend a networking reception entitled Danish Design Business Mission. Here multiple Danish brands and Danish companies were given time to show and tell much more about themselves; what they do, how they work, what design it to them and much more. She was accompanied, once again, by Minister of Trade and Development Mogens Jensen, who really seems to enjoy the Crown Princess company as much as she does his. Maybe it is worth mentioning that she attended the network reception only about an hour after she had visited the Love Life Youth Centre. She is indeed a popular women. 

At the reception she had changed to something a bit more 'evening appropriate', namely a white blouse featuring no sleeves and some kind of lace detail at front matched with a brand new maxi skirt in the most stunning colours! My reader Kate is the one to inform me who created this new skirt, Giambattista Valli did. It turns out that Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway has a jacket with the exact same print, here. For me, the print works best on a skirt. But who do you think wore it better? A print you would consider wearing? Mary had accessorized her casual evening outfit with a golden laser cut bracelet from Jewlscph and rather large golden earrings from the same designer. the bracelet has been seen once before on a official visit with Frederik to Rio de Janeiro in 2012, here. Do you recall having seen it before? As earlier she also wore her I'm Jewel ring, bracelets from  Marianne Dulong and  Shamballa Jewels. I tend to say, of course, she was wearing golden pumps with this outfit. She wore the same the day before and as I told you, I believe they are from Pura Lopez without it has been confirmed. Make-up and hair were perfect as always. With my eyes all over that skirt, I almost forgot to tell you about the clutch, but I'm pretty sure the remember it. It's her beige Naledi Copenhagen clutch.
