First of all I want to thank those of you who have been so kind to answer my questionnaire. Your answers are very important and helpful for me. If anyone would like to participate with their answers as well, then you're very welcome, here.

Now on to something else. I assume you enjoyed my first fashion flashback post, here. At least that's what I hear. So, I think it is time for another one. This time I will bring you back to February 27th 2012. Around that time the Crown Princess attended a two days official visit to Washington. She was suppose to, among others, attend the opening ceremony of the 2nd World Conference of Women's Shelters at Gaylord National Resort Hotel and Convention Center. The Crown Princess was present during several meeting. She also entered the stage to give a speech. I remember her speech very. It was remarkable and it received a lot of applause from the listeners sitting in front of her.

The event at Gaylord National Resort Hotel and Convention Center took place in the evening. And of course the Crown Princess was dressed for the occasion. She dazzled in a black Hugo Boss blouse and khaki dress pants. Non of these item had been seen before, nor afterwards. Her outfit was accessorized with drop earrings from Jewlscph, a Prada belt and leopard pumps from Dolce & Gabbana. Embracing a chic evening look she also wore a black clutch and that orange spotted scarf. The makeup focused on her sincere eyes and made her look even more beautiful. Her hair was in a half updo that clearly show -it does not have to be any more complicated to look great.

How to reuse your wardrobe like Mary

Years ago when I started 'Style of Mary' I spend a lot of time sharing pictures of when and where the Crown Princess had worn her clothes, accessories etc. before, in case of reused pieces. It is something I have not been doing for years. With the rather limited range of pictures available, I have had a hard time making these posts. Now, I faced the challenge and this is what I ended up with. Crown Princess Mary is by no doubt my biggest source of inspiration, also when it comes to how to reuse clothes and accessories even down to hairstyles and makeup. So, meanwhile the Crown Prince couple and all four children enjoy their vacation at Gråsten castle, here, I think time is up for you to get inspired by the Crown Princess and her reuse outfits.

Summer at Gråsten castle

June 29th
When the Crown Princess attended the opening of CPH Garden in Copenhagen, here, I discovered that there are no more events are scheduled in her calendar for the next month. I was then wondering if the couple were going on vacation with the children and I was right. Three days ago the royal house published a photo of Princess Isabella with a caption telling that she was enjoying a ride with her mother in the forest close to Gråsten castle. The photo is taken by the Crown Princess. So, apparently the Crown Prince couple enjoy some time at Gråsten these days.

July 2nd
The day before yesterday, the Crown Prince family welcomed a new member to the family: a border collie called Grace. The sweetest little puppy. Grace is related to the family's first dog, Ziggy. And what a great time a year to welcome a little puppy into the family; while all children are home and they are staying at Gråsten castle on vacation. On this occasions a couple of pictures have been shared on Instagram taken by the Crown Princess herself. Welcome little Grace, you have already won our hearts.

July 15th
Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary were spotted in the streets of Gråsten along with all four children, here. The Crown Prince family watched the annual procession of riders where more than 300 participated.
The Crown Princess was dressed in one of her old white blouses from Athé by Vanessa Bruno, here, and a pair of brand new printed trousers from Bitt Sisseck, here. From what I see, she is wearing brown sandals, a couple of bracelets from, among others, Dulong Fine Jewelry and her red Prada shades. Kate identified her new brown leather sandals as Hermés, here. A great look for the Danish summer weather.

The Crown Prince couple and their four children are spending their vacation at Gråsten castle this year along with the new little puppy Grace and Queen Margrethe. Today all of them, except from Grace, greeted the Gråsten Ring Riding Association parade in the streets of Gråsten. All the riders had flowers and small gifts for the royal family which were received with gratitude. Even though it was pouring down with rain they all seemed to have a great morning, here, here, here, here, here, here.

Crown Princess Mary embrace a chic summer style, unfortunately covered by a black raincoat from 66 North (which could be this here). She attended the event in Gråsten dressed in a brand new maxi skirt identified by Pernille as See By Chloé, here, a white blouse and what I believe is her brown Hugo Boss leather belt. Pretty sure I am not the only one who would love to have seen this outfit without the coat, right? After a closer look I noticed that she was also wearing a couple of golden jewellery -Dulong Fine Jewelry earrings, here, and a bracelet, a Orit Elhanati necklace, here, and a diamond ring from Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen, here.
