Day 2. Work visit in Indonesia

03 December


From early morning Crown Princess Mary was joined by Executive Director of UNPFA, Natalia Kanem when visiting Indonesia Midwifes Association. One of the things discussed during the visit at the Midwifes Association was female circumcision. Despite being banned it is still practiced in Indonesia due to a religious- and traditional believes. 

Fighting for girls and women’s physical and mental health and rights have become one of Crown Princess Mary’s top priorities, which is why I believe this visit was very unique and insightful. She listened and asked questions all along, and payed attention to everything she was told and shown at the clinic.

Later she participated a dialogue on gender-based violence and humanitarian crisis management. Representatives from the Indonesian healthcare authorities as well as the National Commission for Violence against Women also participated the dialogue. I always think it is interesting watching pictures from her participating these panel debates and dialogues. She is so attentive and part of the discussion. Am I the only one who have noticed that? 

The dialogue was followed by a visit to Peacumber Coffee. At the moment a moving healthcare clinic is placed outside the cafĂ©. These moving clinics is one of UNFPA’s initiatives to makes it easier for girls and women to have access to birth control.


In the evening Crown Princess Mary attended another significant event – the 70th anniversary of the diplomatic relationship between Denmark and Indonesia. She was one big smile at the arrival where she was warmly welcomed to the anniversary. As guest of honor the Crown Princess entered the stage and gave a speech in addition to the official celebration.

Dinner served at the night of celebration were created by the Danish chef, Per Thøstesen. He had created a dinner inspired by both countries. Also, the following ballet performance combined Denmark and Indonesia because the par de deux was performed by the Indonesian ballet dancer, Alban Lendorf and Wenny Halim – who have studied in Denmark.


The second day in Indonesia Mary has chosen another one of her old printed dresses. This time she dazzled wearing a blue and white printed dress from Michael Kors. We have seen the dress a couple of times before and to me this dress just gets better and better every time we get to see it. What is your opinion about the dress? Anything you would wear yourself? I imagine it with a pair of sneakers or boots; tights and maybe a knitted sweater. Well it is way colder in Denmark than Indonesia.

She embraced the style of the dress with white pearl jewelry all from Dulong Fine Jewelry. The earrings go way back in time and quickly became one of her favorite pair of earrings. Later she added a matching bracelet and a large pearl ring to accomplish the look. I also stopped her golden Cartier bracelet and the white pearl ring as mentioned a minute ago. Her lovely green beaded necklace is her Nadia Shelbaya creation.

Once again Mary stunned in nude pumps this time from Jimmy Choo. I always loved the shape of this model. It features an almond shaped toe and a lower heel. Looks great with the dress and relaxed hairstyle. Surprises me every time how chic it looks when her hair is like this. She makes a simple ponytail look smashing!

Mary looked absolutely stunning at the 70th anniversary celebration Tuesday evening. She wore her bright pink printed dress from Etro. The same dress as when her husband celebrated her 50th birthday not that many years ago. At that time most people loved the dress and how it wrapped around her body. Because the color is so bright and the print is very bold, the black hemline gives the dress a certain balance. It makes the eye relax a bit from all the colors and prints. I cannot get enough of this dress. It looks great on her.

I get why she was wearing only a few accessories and in the same colors as the dress. This outfit is primarily about the dress, but not forget to take a look at the incredible accessories as well. The stunning and super elegant earrings features both pink and yellow stones (like the dress in colors). Quite a while ago they were found at Annikat, who also created other of her expensive diamond jewelry. Mary has already worn these earrings at several events since the presentation in 2014. So far, the earrings have mostly been used for evening events, but it would not come as a surprise if she’d wear them as everyday jewelry one day.

Mary also dazzled wearing one of her Carlend Copenhagen clutch – a pink one this time. I have one myself (not made of crocodile as Mary’s) and I love it because it adds something very special to any outfit. Surprisingly most other colors actually match this pink clutch very well. She matched the rest of her bright and exotic evening outfit with black mesh pumps from Gianvito Rossi. With hairstyle, dress and accessories I can’t help myself from loving this outfit a great deal.
