Inauguration of Strandbakkehuset

16 June

It was a special day for more than Crown Princess Mary. It was also an exciting day for the workers at Stranbakkehuset and the residents, because Strandbakkehuset was about the be inaugurated by the Crown Princess. 

Strandbakkehuset is Denmark's first newly built children's and young people's hospice in Rønde in Djursland. They offer special care and treatment to children and young people and their families, who suffers from life threatening diseases.

The Crown Princess was truly in a wonderful and excellent mood, when she arrived in Rønde. A flower girl welcomed her with a lovely bouquet of flowers. Regional Council Chairman Anders Kühnau, Hospice Chairman Dorit Simonsen and Chairman of the Board Jørgen Keinicke also welcomed her with great pleasure. The weather was perfect for an inauguration!

The inauguration was celebrated with balloons, the mandatory red ribbon and a guided tour around the brand new facilities. Both Anders Kühnau, Dorit Simonsen and Jørgen Keinicke showed her around and talked about their family homes, outdoor playground and a the important sensory rooms.

What a wonderful day in Rønde just like her beautiful outfit. I am still a bit troubled with the color of the dress such as the print. But it looks so comfortable to wear. Guess Mary has the same feeling, because this is the fourth time she wears it. She first wore this Hennes & Mauritz dress, when attending Copenhagen Fashion Summit in May 2019 (here). Then again a couple of months later at a conference in September 2019 (here) and when visiting Indonesia in December 2019 (here).

At the inauguration of Strandbakkehuset, Mary accessorized her printed sheer dress with her new diamond heart necklace from Ebba Sydow Jewelry. Such a stunning pendant. Her golden hoops are from Dulong Fine Jewelry. The same designer created at least two of her golden bracelets. Her colored stone bracelet is new to me. The style is so similar to Dulong Fine Jewelry's Piccolo bracelets (here). This is why I have come to believe that this is the designer. Her golden bangle is from Cartier. I also see a diamond band from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen.

Usually, I adore when she wear nude accessories with colorfull clothes, but for this dress I makes her look a bit pale... Imagine the dress worn with red pumps or maybe even white. Her beige python pumps are from Gianvito Rossi.

  1. I agree with you about the color of the dress--it washes Mary out--and the lack of color with the shoes. Maybe pair this dress with her one of her different shades of blue pumps? She has several different colors. Or, it might look great with the brown sandals with the chunky heel?

    1. Well, the color isn't that bad, but very special and it take the right accessories to make the best of it. To me that is not beige, nude or any other colors like that. I think chunky brown sandals would look really good :)
