March, Tuesday 15th
Along with the Mary Foundation, Crown Princess Mary visited the Mother's Help and Odense Shelter in Odense.
I'm sure she is busy planning the Women Deliver 2016 Conference as Denmark this year hosts from May 16-19th. As patron of the conference, the Crown Princess only have about one and a half month left to get everything under control to the world's largest conference on health, rights and well-being of girls and women. It takes countless hours to plan a huge event like this, which may be the reason why we haven't seen her that much since their visit to Saudi Arabia and Qatar. When I look in her calendar I see some great events in the future. One of them is actually tonight.
Today, she was at the island of Funen to visit the Mother's Help and Odense Shelter because of one of the Mary Foundations projects, 'Advice for Life', which aims to help battered women with economic, legal and social counseling from volunteer counselors. The two places she visited both uses 'Advice for Life' as a tool helping women to get back on track. When she arrived to the Mother's Help counseling in Odense, she was kindly welcomed by a little flower boy handing over a beautiful bouquet of flowers to her. At the same time she was greeted by Counseling CEO Charlotte Wæver and Director of the Mother's Help Mads Roke Clausen. All of them seemed delighted to meet her, such as she was happy to meet them. With a cop a coffee the Crown Princess had some time to hear for herself how one of the Mary Foundation's projects are working in reality. Her interest showed off with the questions she asked sitting around the table with representatives from the Mother's Help. After she visited with the same excitement Odense Shelter, where she met some of the women 'Advice for Life' is created to help, who all were very happy to meet the Crown Princess. They told her some of their stories and how 'Advice for Life' has helped them to get back on track after living with a violent boyfriend or husband. To a journalist she expressed how brave she think the women are, because it's differently not easy to talk about something like having been exposed to violence.
At first I thought "yeah a brand new dress". After a closer look I had to correct that to "yeah a brand new blouse" because that's what it is -a new blouse in the most incredible dusty colour featuring a wide belt. Because the weather in Denmark right now are all just foggy and windy, it's really not time for fine summer dresses and floral skirt. With her new blouse and black trousers she created a great balance between weather and stylish outfit. Kate managed to identify her blouse as Hugo Boss. As the trousers, which could be from Hugo Boss as well, she wore also wore a black turtleneck to keep warm in the wind. Unfortunately, not that many pictures have been published, which makes it's difficult for me to identify which pair of shoes she is wearing. With what I have seen I guess they are from Gianvito Rossi worn at a previous event. Mary chose to wear only a few simple jewellery -black pearl earrings from Dulong Fine Jewelry, her golden Georg Jensen bracelet worn so much in Saudi Arabia and Qatar and a few rings from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. I hope to find more pictures to be sure about the shoes and bracelet. Any thoughts about her outfit? I am completely in love with everything about it.
