What is the Summer Book all about?
The Summer Book is a project which encourage kids to find the fun in reading at the same time it is a competition for all kids in the age of 7 to 14 years old. It runs from June 19 till August 22. To be a part of the competition the children have to read at least three books and write or film a review on Pallesgavebod.dk. This year a school class is able to take part in the competition and that class who manage to read most books is visited by Jacob Riising, writer and entertainer. Let the reading begin!

1:00 pm. Crown Princess Mary visited the exhibition Danish Fashion Now at Brandts in Odense. 

Haven't we heart about Danish Fashion Now before?
You probably have. Maybe in a little different context, because in Match I informed you that Crown Princess Mary had chosen to actually participate in a exhibition or 10 of her Danish designed dresses were at Brandts in Odense. The Danish Fashion Now is more a snapshot of the Danish designers we have, for the Danes to be proud of the magnificent creative sense we have. To show Danish fashion through time and a tribute to fashion. See all her 10 dresses here and read more about the exhibition here.

I was so happy to see her wear colours again, when it is spring and summer the time is up for bright and light colours especially pastel which we often get to see Mary in this time a year. Unfortunately, the weather is nothing to celebrate. Really, it's raining all the time and I believe I'm not the only Danish woman who would do everything to wear dresses, sandals and sleeveless tops. It's just not the case. We have to deal with rubber boots, rain coats and scarves. Everyone wishes for a better summer than the one we have right now. 

The bad weather is by no doubt the reason for Mary's choice of clothes - the long sleeves and boring colour. I only say that because at this time a year she use to wear eye-catching clothes featuring bright colours and prints which I miss. I still admire her having bare legs at a day like this. Today's outfit is one to take notice of if you like the work/business wear. Personally this is the style I like and always wear; a shirt, pencil skirt and a blazer are great to create any basic wardrobe. You can wear it both day and night with any accessory. Today's outfit is pretty easy for any of you to copy. First of all there is the matt silk blouse featuring a black hemline, Mary's has been identified by Kate as JOSEPH. My great thanks to her for the help to find the new wonderful blouse! The black hemline give the blouse a feminine and classic touch, another great things is a it's possible to match it with both skirts and trousers for everyday and evening. It almost not get any more classy and stylish then wearing this new blouse with a pleated textured A-line skirt. Kate is also the one who identified the new skirt from Whiite Copenhagen, a brand we have never seen Mary wearing before. Actually JOSEPH match it with a pleated skirt at their website! The super luxurious black patent pumps I think is her Rupert Sanderson

When you are dedicated to Mary and her fashion you might also have a love for fashion in general. 
Every decade have their own trend we remember, their own style to remember. Because there is so much attention to the fashion these days and because there's so so many different designers I think it's a bit difficult to find this decades trends. It changes all the time, year after year. One thing to mention is the simplicity. Simplicity is the what makes outfits these days. Less is more. The reason why I mention this is because of the modern and simple look Mary was dressed in also when it comes to her choice of jewellery. She only wore a silver Marianne Dulong featuring a large white pearl. So beautiful. 

I would really like to hear what you think of today's outfit! Is it a go or a no-go?
