Minskat Copenhagen

Alba in nude
A while ago I discovered MINSKAT COPENHAGEN when searching for something completely else on Instagram. The reason why their page caught my attention was because they had a reference to Crown Princess Mary. I found out that Mary has several of their designs and I thought I'd give you the chance to get one of your own. Therefor I've got permission to share this post with all of you including some wonderful pictures and of course more about the bags Mary has. So maybe you have yet another thing to add to your wish list for Christmas or maybe the next purchase for yourself?

Crown Princess Mary has this huge (and incredible) clothes collection, shoe collection, jewellery collection and bag collection not to forget. She often choose a handbag or clutch to give her outfit the last 'finish'. And a bag really does the difference, no doubt about that. Like everything else in the Crown Princess' wardrobe, her bags are admirable. Each one of them cause a stir, no matter what she is wearing and where she is going. Like shoes I think bags give a statement of who you are, what you like, which style you love etc. Also, a bag is not just a bag. It has to fit, among others, you as human and your needs. Therefor I think it is essential for one to find the absolutely right bag/clutch in size, colour, material etc. All the years Mary has been in Denmark we have seen so many different (and expensive) bags. Now I really want to give you the opportunity to have one of these in your personal wardrobe. Sounds good, right? MINSKAT COPENHAGEN has been so kind to share the information with me about which of their lovely bags Mary has. I am pretty sure you are going to love what I'm about to show you. To models that perfectly suit Mary's classy style and, because of their exclusive and simple design they will look good on you no matter what style you prefer. We are talking about a tan leather handbag and a cross-body bag that also works as clutch in two amazing colour. Let yourself fall in love with some incredible designs! You can also follow MINSKAT COPENHAGEN on FacebookInstagram and Pinterest. Happy reading!

As blogger I get the chance to corporate with the most sweet and loving people you can find on earth. It is always fantastic to share all of it with you. I have been so lucky to be contacted by several different companies, who want to share an idea with me. Only once I had to refuse. A few days ago I was contacted by an amazing woman from Norlie who we all know as the wonderful children's clothes Princess Isabella and her younger sister Princess Josephine are seen wearing. She kindly asked me if I would be interested in sharing a specific piece. This piece is a similar poncho to the one Princess Isabella wore last year on the family visit to Greenland, where Princess Josephine also wore a Norlie poncho in a lovely off-white colour. I'm so thrilled and honor to get this request that I simply decided to dedicate an entire post just with the purpose to tell you all about their new girls poncho, reproduced in the style of Princess Isabella's from the new AW15 collection. Apparently many of you, my wonderful readers, have shown an interest in the poncho at the time. Therefor I give you the opportunity, in collaboration with Norlie, to get your hands on it again. Thanks Norlie, for getting in touch with me and letting me show one of your beautiful products on the blog.


"Beautiful poncho in a soft knit fabric. The poncho has a turtleneck and opening to the arms at each side. At the top of the poncho is rib, and at the bottom a fine knitted pattern. 45% acrylic, 35% wool, 20% alpaca. Must be hand washed." Purchase, here

Madison Reed

I have been so lucky to collaborate with Madison Reed on this post. It is always a pleasure to collaborate with different companies, it makes a regular post a bit more exciting. Both to write and read. Madison Reed is all about hair and haircare. Madison Reed have a specific mission: to make personal care more personal. In their opinion this is done by re-developing the hair colour industry with innovative and technology-enabled hair care and colour product. Sounds good right? They support you every step of the way to make your hair look the best and let you fell fantastic. Madison Reed offer a little more glamour to your everyday. What any woman need. The company work with five things: Courage, Trust, Love, Responsibility & Joy.  


I'm focusing on their very interesting "hair-o-scope". My first impression was: what on earth is a hair-o-scope? If you have the same thoughts it would not surprise me at all. Still, this hair-o-scope-thing sounded exciting and I just had to know more about it. Have I also aroused your curiosity? Then keep on reading. The thing is that Madison Reed have developed their own horoscope's for hair. So, all depending on which zodiac you are, Madison Reed give you the best tip for a good hair day. And who does not want to have good days every day? I found it very entertaining and instructive to read more about my own zodiac in the hair-o-scope. You find all 12 right here.

Well, this is still a blog about the Crown Princess of Denmark, which is I decided, with Madison Reed's permission, to show her hair-o-scope. The Crown Princess was born on January 5th, so her astrological sign is: Aquarius (January 20 to February 18). 

Hair-o-Scope for Aquarius: 

"Oh airy Aquarius, how we envy your cool confidence, comic prowess, and knack for new technology. Your open-mindedness has earned you a loyal crew that loves basking in your fun-loving company and they can usually find you marching in protest of injustice (if you're not communing with nature in the mountains)."

" We know you love to keep up with the latest gadgets and trends, so experiment with a daring 'do. Make a statement with a dramatically darkened hair. Or, play up that cute smile with an edgy pixie that frames your face with fluttery tendrils."

Hair colours like Mary's by Madison Reed


This is Madison Reed's hair-o-scope for Crown Princess Mary! To sum up; Mary has brown hair sometimes pretty dark. Her hair is always voluminous and flowing free. That's how we see her most of the time. She's open-minded and confident as well as smiley. The above suggested hair colours is some I have found to match the colour of Mary. Right now hers are a mix between blonde, brown and some red. Actually, Madison Reed have made their own hair dye advisor, so if you would like hair as Mary you now have my suggestions, you can find them on your own here or use the hair dye advisor, here, if you're looking for some completely else. I had so much fun finding my 'new ideal' colour and another great thing is when you have done this little questionnaire; your answers are saved for later and they advise you when looking for you new colours. Can we ask for anything more?

I hope you had as much fun as me reading and learning about this. I thank Madison Reed for the chance to share their thoughts with all of you. So, hurry up and find your next hairstyle with your own personal hair-o-scope!


Vegas.com

lg_Cosmo---1---Exterior

It is with great excitement and pleasure I am doing this post in collaboration with Vegas.com! They offer all the best hotels, shows, tours and club etc. in LA. A dream place to be. What I was asked to do is, show a few different outfits that I would wear at different times a day visiting Cosmopolitan. I have never been to LA before and maybe I never will. But for a moment I will visit the one and only Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas with all it takes. 







lg_Cosmo-3---Lobby - ARRIVAL             image

For me it is always important to look good even when you arrive, so I have decided that my first outfit must be the moment I arrive to the Cosmopolitan. I have a very classic style that include white pearl earrings, striped blouses and trenchcoat. I love when every part of your outfit speaks for itself. The things I've chosen can also easily be combined in a different way, which makes it quickly to transform you outfit to a entire new look. A beige trendcoat can be used during summer and fall and the colour makes it pretty easy to matched with other piece. I can't live without mine just as with the red lipstick. I may be a little addicted to red lipstick and have it in so many different shades. Then we have a pair of black pointed pump and dark jeans; a woman's wardrobe is not complete without. A striped blouse and brown leather bag are the perfect way to make my arrival outfit look outstanding.

I'm usually not the type who loves to splash around in a pool. What I enjoy must about the pool area, is the chairs. A place in the sun, lots of sunscreen and a pair of sunglasses and I am ready to enjoy myself. No matter time and occasion it is important for me to keep my outfit simple and classy. I find great inspiration in the 50s fashion also when it comes to swimwear. Although the bathing suit is black, I love the cute details at the chest. Because of this, they can easily be worn as a blouse with a pair of shorts. The hair bow is just for fun. Gives the outfit a little something to look at, as the golden vintage chain bracelet. Animal print is not usually something I very often but these sunglasses would do perfect for my 'swimming pool' look. Brown is a big part of my personal wardrobe and is a great basic colour, which is why I chosen a pair of brown leather sandals to complete these outfit. A red nail polish would also do great. 



lg_Cosmo---7---Terrace             image

One of the things I really LOVE when I'm on vacation, is the chance to read a book(s). This is the best way for me to relax. With this view I could spend hours reading my book. One of my favourite international authors is Dan Brown. His books have everything that make a book good -humor, mysteries, codes, puzzles etc. Navy blue is one of my absolute favourite colours and jumpsuit is great for my alone time on the terrace. It is both chic and relaxing at the same time. Especially I like the detail with the white ribbon. Gold jewellery have over the years become a huge part of my collection and a necklace with your own initial or someone you care for, fits perfectly with this outfit, such as the ankle bracelet does. And with my animal printed sunglasses I'm more than ready to spend hours with my book and maybe a cold glass of white wine. 



lg_Cosmo-32-Scarpetta - DINNER             image

Finally. It is the end of a wonderful day at the Cosmopolitan. I arrived in wearing my dark jeans and striped blouse, then I enjoyed some time at the pool getting myself a little tanned followed by a time on my terrace with a book. Dinner time is here which means time to change for something a bit more polished. Black is always a good and especially when we are talking about lace which is why I have chosen this stunning black lace blouse. It is so beautiful! Though I love to wear black, it is still important not to look boring. The I thought; why not wear an olive green skirt and of course bright red lips? In this way, you’ll notice every different parts of the outfit. The earrings helps to emphasize the lace. For all my outfits, my hair would be curly. Loose and wavy curls. Now I hope you have a little inspiration for what to wear if you are ever going to try a #CosmopolitanChic outfit!


Paul Frederick

About a week ago, I received a mail from the Community Engagement Coordinator from Paul Fredrick. I was asked to participate in a one of their project's Sharp Dressed Man. Several bloggers will give their opinion on  what men should wear. I could not resist the challenge. Why should Style of Mary always be about women's style? The past few year's many of you have been asking questions on the clothes Crown Prince Frederik is wearing and this is really my opportunity to share some 'men's fashion advise' with you. Hope you will enjoy reading the post as much as I did writing it.

So who is Paul Frederick?
The clothes company Paul Frederick was founded 25 year's ago. First they specialized in dress shirts but their collection has since then grown exponentially as well as the number of satisfied long-term customers. They design, manufacture and directly distribute every single item from their collection. So no wholesalers, no store fronts just great style at everyday prices.



The most desired style of dress shirts and ties
When to find the right dress shirt, it is essential to find one matching your age. In my opinion younger men should wear a bit more plain shirts and ties or a rather small pattern, as the first two shown above. Large and very colourful dress shirts often gets messy and are hard to match with other pieces. A plain and simple colour and/or pattern makes you look polished and sharp! Different coloured dress shirt and tie are way better for a bit older and more mature men, as example number three. These eye catching combinations shows that you are not afraid to trey new thing, stand out and are ready to enjoy every single moment of life. Last thing I want to mention for all you men out there is the fact that dress shirts do really good with a pair of jeans. Gives your outfit a more casual look. So do not hesitate to wear your most beloved shirt with jeans as well.


What accessories worn best and when?
Accessories. First thing that comes to me is a question: why aren't men wearing hats anymore? I would love to see more men wear hats -women too! Hats are great and should be appreciated way more. The two of those I have chosen can give your outfit the last touch. Both do great with a casual outfit. A belt is always a great accessory and the brown colour is good for a winter and a summer outfit, just as the suspenders. I'm crazy about the green and white ones above. They are classy, a little old fashioned and super stylish at the same time. Scarves and gloves do really well. When to choose which accessories you want to wear, then decide if you want your clothes or accessories to stand out – not both. Last but not least, wear something that makes you feel good!



When is the best time to wear a suit?
One word: ANYTIME! I’m really old fashioned when it comes to men's clothes and I wish that more men would wear a suit more often. As with the hats. Yes, they may be uncomfortable but it looks good. In my opinion there are no right age to begin wearing suits or stop to stop it. I sense that especially younger men feel uncomfortable in a suit, maybe it is just before they are not use to it. The most important is to find a suit that fits you and of course one you actually would wear. As with the dress shirt and ties, I think it makes the best outfit if you decide which part should be printed and colourful and which should be a little more plain. This combination will give you a balance look. I have chosen three different suits to give you some inspiration. I have tried to find some that represent most ages. Aren’t they just looking good?


Ways to dress down but still stand out
I have already talked a little about how to be sharped dress and casual at the same time. In other words; how to dress down but still stand out. First we have dark trousers in grey, blue, brown, green etc. made of denim or maybe even wool. These two materials are really comfortable to wear and looks great with a blazer, a cardigan or sweater. A quite simple way to wear other items form your clothes without compromising on style. Colours will do good with your darker trousers. Printed accessories are also allow. Another thing to do, is to mix and match different textures -wool, cotton, leather etc. When looking at the three picture above, you may have noticed the mission tie which is yet another to keep in mind. No tie will loosen it all up.

My last advices
I hope you have enjoyed reading this post and have got some inspiration what to wear for you next sharp dressed man-look. Last, I only have a few other advices to remember when finding new clothes wether it's a whole new wardrobe you are looking for or just a new piece (these advices also applies for women). Remember that every item showed in my post can be found at Paul Frederick, here

        ✽  Keep it simple
        ✽  Always wear clothes in the right size
        ✽  Wear what makes you feel good
        ✽  Try to keep a distance between daytime and nighttime outfits  
        ✽  Most important: be confident in your own skin
