Love that Frederik and Mary are the one to lead this state visit, despite it's Queen Margrethe who host the visit. This means we get to see the couple much more than we use to. Well, you don't hear any complain from me. On their second, and last, day in Denmark H.E. Enrique Peña Nieto and Mrs Angélica Rivera had a lot to do; many places to see and lots of people to meet. From early morning, Mary and Mrs Rivera visited the kindergarten Ådalen who used the Mary Foundation's Free of Bullying program. They were both warmly welcomed at the arrival by children standing with each their red and white flag waving in the wind. As the children had both women's attention, all children were amazed by the two women. Mary and Mrs Angélica Rivera were handed over each a wonderful bouquet of flowers. Mrs Rivera seemed to really enjoy the time accompanying Mary on a "regular" visit. Very proud the children showed some of their drawings and told stories. It gave a smile on both women's faces to talk to the kids in Ådalens kindergarten. During the visit, was Mrs Rivera introduced to some of the tools from the Mary Foundation's Free of Bullying program, developed to prevent bullying for children in the age of kindergarten and pre-school. While Mary and Mexico's first lady enjoyed the morning, Frederik and President H.E. Enrique Peña Nieto attended a business conference at Danish Industry in Copenhagen, followed by a meeting with Pia Kjærsgård, Chairwoman of the Danish Parliament and with Prime minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen for the President. All four of them arrived at 4:00 pm local time at Tjørnegård school in Gentofte to see LEGO i used in teaching to make it easier, more fun and to strengthen the students' memory. They were all in a brilliant mood and I love to see Frederik and Mexico's President join their wives. Mary and Mrs Rivera were both very popular among the students, who came really close to a future Queen.

Every day that passes we get closer and closer to summer, sun and the time a year it's all right to wear a dress without tights. That's really not something Mary takes very serious because at the most crazy time a year we see her with bare legs and a knee-length dress, just like we did when she and Mrs Rivera arrived to Ådalen kindergarten. Chilly, but she actually looks like she doesn't care. Yesterday we were lucky because she was wearing on of her beautiful, reused Prada dresses. Since the first time, we have seen it several times since -with and without the peplum, which is removable. This time = no peplum but a lovely belt perfectly matching the colour of her dress. In 2014 Mary wore the exact combination with the dress, coat and clutch when the Queen hosted a state visit from Turkey. To keep it classy, she wore a navy blue Quidam clutch and a pair of leather gloves. Like the amazing trendsetter she is, Mary chose her beige/rosa patent pumps from Gianvito Rossi which I think was a fantastic choice! They make a great match to the darker blue dress and of course white Prada coat featuring some pretty details. The funny thing is that I the day before yesterday assumed this was the pumps she wore during the gala dinner at Fredensborg palace but I was completely mistaken. But then the next day, she's actually wearing them! Without getting overdressed, Mary added a large pearl bracelet and a pair of diamond earrings from Dulong Fine Jewelry to make her outfit complete. Incredibly stunning! And my compliment, once again, to Mrs. Angélica Rivera because of her matching white, I tend to say, suit.

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary attending the return dinner at D'Angleterre

To end this official state visit with manner, it was time for President H.E. Enrique Peña Nieto and Mrs Angélica Rivera to host a return dinner that took place at Hotel D'Angleterre in Copenhagen. 150 guests were invited taking part in the dinner to enjoy a well cooked meal which is the way to say thanks for a couple a great days in Denmark from the Mexican Presidential couple. In order the royal family members arrived; first Princess Benedikte (which by the way wore a really amazing dress!) along with her lady-in-waiting, then Prince Joachim and Princess Marie, Frederik and Mary next and last Queen Margrethe accompanied by her husband Prince Henrik were welcomed by the President H.E. Enrique Peña Nieto and Mrs Angélica Rivera who waited at the hotel ready to welcome all 150 guests and the royal family. A great way to end a successful state visit!

Like the star she is, Mary arrived dinner time with her lovely husband Frederik dressed perfectly for a dinner like this. I would't hesitate for a single second wearing this outfit for a girls night out or dinner with my family. These printed full midi skirts are incredible popular and so trendy! I'm so lucky to have a similar one in darker colours which I would wear exactly this way. We have seen it, the Ganni skirt, once before at INDEX: Award 2015 worn with the same sleeveless blouse. A pretty combo. Unfortunately I have no ID on the blouse. Not that the lace shawl is warm but I love the fact that we get to see it again. Now it's six years since we have seen it, on a visit to Budapest. The info I have, is that it's from Julie Fagerholt Heartmade. Look how beautifully it cover her arms?! Matching the lace shawl, she wore her smashing Gianvito Rossi pumps. What makes this outfit so perfect, are all her accessories. No doubt about that. In two brown colours Mary wore a pair of earrings from Jewlscph, seen before. Both the golden ring and matching bracelet are from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen. Then we have a long Bottega Veneta clutch, we see now and then. I would really love to learn how to make my hair this pretty! Mary is always a movie star with curls, soft curls. Wauw. And that makeup, great for a evening look with red lips gloss and dramatic eye makeup. Adorable way to end a wonderful day. 

It was a pleasure to follow the state visit with you girls. Thanks for reading! I'll be back soon with new posts from today attendances. By the way, check out the updated web side of! It's amazing, but something I have to get use to.
