It is rather unusual for the couple to attend each others planned events, at least if it's not published ahead. But nothing had hit the press about Crown Prince Frederik accompanying his wife when she attended the Olympic qualification tournament Danish Open in Bellahøj. The Crown Princess was present as patron of the Danish Swimming Federation. The couple arrived in the afternoon both in great mood ready to greet the Danish team of swimmers before the tournament. The tournament help to find the most skilled swimmer to participate the Olympic Games in Rio De Janeiro. Despite it was a official visit, all acted like it was a private visit. Usually photographers and journalists are way more enthusiastic, but not this time. The royal couple followed closely everything that was going on in the swimming stadium, especially thrilled to followed Pernille Blume, when she won her way to the Olympic Games such as swimmer Jeanette Ottesen.

Mary was dressed really casual when she and her husband attended the tournament in Bellhøj on Friday afternoon. A while ago a friend and I talked about more casual event where she is wearing jeans. Something that has not really happened much during her 12 years as Crown Princess. Well, jeans is very casual and maybe sometimes even a little too casual for her attendances. Nevertheless, I still love her in jeans. This time Mary matched her jeans with a striped blouse, likely from Ralph Lauren (collection: Blue Label) as Kate shared with me. I searched for more pictures and came across Katecloset, here, and it seems like Catherine Duchess of Cambridge, has the exact same blouse. A very beautiful combination, especially with that navy blue Massimo Dutti reversible coat. As with the jeans, it surprised me to see her wear a pair of new suede boots. I haven't been able to identify them. Any ideas? She was probably wearing diamond studs from Hartmann's. One good-looking outfit.

  1. The Crown Princess more often than not wears boot cut jeans; however, this pair is somewhat different as the flair starts at the calf. In addition, the rest of the jeans is the most close fitting that I am yet to see her wear. Having said that, there are so many options that one could choose in styling jeans. Mary chose to give it a bit more formal styling, in my opinion, by choosing long vs short coat and then opting to keep it casual with her choice of the blouse / tee and low-heel neutral color boots.

    1. You say something; these jeans actually look different to those we are use to, maybe a little 70s vibe? Still, I think they look great on her. The way to "hug" her legs looks beautiful. This is just one way to style jeans but with the striped blouse and suede boots, you always have a winner-outfit ;)
