Three weeks for Christmas!

♚♛No doubt that this red and nude outfit caught everybody's attention when the Crown Princess attended the Royal Ascot in the UK back in June accompanied by her husband. At the Royal Ascot very strict rules determines what guests should wear -Mary did perfectly! I am so sure this look would do great for almost any event you are going to during December though it was worn by Mary in a summer season. Maybe also without the hat if you need to tone it a bit down. If not, just go ahead! Like last weeks outfit, I got inspired by her use of a bright colour with nude/beige. And once again, she makes it work. Glamorous and elegant, perfect for Christmas. Have fun everybody!

'The Nutcracker' in Tivoli

Thursday, December 1st

Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary attended the premiere of the ballet The Nutcracker along with their four children.

What a lovely surprise! I was not aware that the royal family would attend the ballet premiere of The Nutcracker but it is just a wonderful 1st December gift for all of us. Queen Margrethe has been involved in the scenography and has designed all costumes, which by the way is not the first time. Nor is it the first time Queen Margrethe has invited the royal royal couple and their children to see the Christmas ballet. This year all four children attended along with their parents. The ballet took place in Tivoli Concert Hall. Also Countess Alexandra, her youngest son Prince Felix and his brother Prince Henrik were present such as Queen Anne-Marie. I wonder why Prince Joachim, Princess Marie and of course Princess Athena were not attending too? Well, the royal family members arrived around 7 pm. local time and clearly they had a great -even before the ballet started. I am sure they enjoyed the beautifully Christmas decorated Tivoli. The Queen entered the stage after the performance and the audience loved it!

It feels like a year since we have seen Mary and it's really just a week or so. But I have lost sense of reality the last week. So I am thrilled to see her at this unofficial event. With just this one outfit I am already inspired to do something similar on my own. In the dark Mary dazzled in a reused caramel coloured Oscar de la Renta coat. A splendid colour this time a year. Last time we saw it was at King Carl Gustavs 70th birthday celebration in April, hereNo doubt that I'm excited to it again. And my increased heartbeat does not end here because she was wearing both new pumps and a brand new tartan scarf! Never thought we would see her wear anything like this new scarf. Do you like it? I think it looks great combined with the coat. Don't you think? We'll get back to the shoes. A couple of images appeared of her without the coat and to me it differently looks like a new dress -black featuring some kind of symmetric white or silver pattern. Maybe dots. Difficult to identify with only one picture. Does it remind you of a specific designer? She accessorized her outfit with a Carlend Copenhagen clutch, unidentified earrings, a ring and her golden Cartier bracelet. Perfectly matching the multicolour scarf Mary had red nails and the most amazing berry lips. Simply gorgeous! Now back to the shoes. Also brand new. I do not know if you recognized the style, but I did right away. Valentino! A new pair of rockstud pumps in green! I simply adore these pumps; how a classsic pump meet the more edgy rivet is just great. Can't wait to see her wear them again. Please note that the one I have found is black and not green. Of course I also have to mention that she was wearing green leather gloves as well. 

Coat: Oscar de la Renta Low Swing Coat w. Belt, front + Low Swing Coat w. Belt, Back
Bracelet: Cartier Love Bracelet
Clutch: Carlend Copenhagen Vanessa Original Python
Shoes: Valentino Rockstud Leather 100mm Pump

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?

Mira in tan

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!

Four weeks for Christmas!

Now we hit the day where there is only four weeks for Christmas eve! I can not believe how fast time has gone by the last months. Since I started studying again, I feel time has run by my with a million km. per hour. I have had fun, made new friends and learned so much. My time has not been wasted. Suddenly yesterday it struck me; OMG tomorrow is the first advent. Something I have been looking really much forward to, which give me the chance to share a weekly post with you. That is never a bad thing. I am sure all of you have many plans for December -friends to meet, places to go so I have decided to share four of Mary's outfits from 2016 that I think would do for any occasion. The outfits I have chosen are some I really like myself and some that have caught more attention than usual. So I hope you will be inspired to try something new, find a couple of things you can not live without or just enjoy watching a few outfits -that I am sure will make you excited. Make it a wonderful sunday!

✤ The first look I want to give you the opportunity to recreate is this sophisticated and classy outfit from Frederik and Mary's visit to Washington in September. I have been in love with everything about this look since the second I saw it the first photo. I think the bright blue colour would do perfectly for any Christmas event you are going to in December. The way Mary matched her blue jumpsuit with beige accessories and golden jewellery just makes each colour look even more magnificent. I am convinced that this will work splendid with any from dramatic to natural makeup, any colour nail polish and hairstyle you would like. Personally I would go for blueish eyemakeup, natural lips, softs curls and a bright red coloured nail polish. Think pink would do great as well. So let your imagination give this outfit the last touch!
