It's always a delight to see Mary. Always impeccable (clothing, hair, accessories, posture) and I love how she make the effort to match her jewellery to her clothing. In this case, the brooch is the same 2 colours as her outfit. I do not have problem with the skirt on whether is it suppose to be a evening dress. Instead I think it gave a hint of playfulness to the serious jacket. And I think a pencil skirt in this case will be too much of a corporate outfit.

Dislike the last two outfits. The lace navy and white too much emphasis on the buttons and all the way buttoned up in the bodice made it look too costumey for me.

The second outfit, while I like the color combo and the brooch, do agree with the posters who say it looks like she threw the jacket on over a party dress. Espcially the rear view with the flared peplum fights with the lace skirt, imo.

The last two outfits aren't for me either. I find lace difficult to wear at daytime events, the lace suit is too much for me. It looks very schoolmamsell all buttoned up.

The red lace skirt is all wrong in this combination.

I do not like Crown Princess Mary's lacy ensembles.

The navy and white lace dress is horrible. Lace fabric does not suit that style dress. In addition, that type of lace looks like cheap lace curtain fabric. In another fabric, the dress would have looked great.

The black and rust color skirt/ jacket combo is another miss in my opinion. The two pieces do not go together. The color combination is great and the accessories work well. If the skirt had just been made out of a lightweight wool, this would have been a great outfit.

I also have to add that I am officially and completely sick of lace for daytime outfits. I don't mind it for evening, but please enough already with the lace in the daytime. There are other fabrics available.

more recycling from Mary. She's worn the jacket 8 times now (that I spotted). First in April 2004 for Margrethe's birthday, then in September 2004, May 2008, May 2009, April 2010, January 2012, May 2012, and of course today. I'm very impressed that she can wear a jacket from 10 years ago.

Love Mary's outfit.
Absence is, in my opinion, important to find out whether something in your life is meaningful and important! It may be difficult to endure, but the end result is always revealing.

I don't dislike the navy and white number but it just looks uncomfortable imho. As for the rust and black not real keen on a lightweight skirt and heavier jacket.

Perfection, this is really called *stepping out side the box* and she carried it off really well. It's fun, playful, cute and looks so pretty. I get tired of the same ole same ole clothes, Mary has a way of bring new life into clothes that most would not think would go together........I love the skirt, I want that skirt and in that color..........the brooch is great, it even goes with the colors of the entire outfit. A real pretty princess ........

The skirt is beautiful and so is the jacket matched with it. She looked lovely!

Agreed! Am I imagining it or has Mary changed her hair style? It seems to be much longer and with no flattering layers around her face, it seems to drag her face down. An unusual effect and one I hope we don't see more of.

I think the black jacket is classy. The lace skirt is no classy, and the combination is very bad!

To both the event and the meeting wearing a new white/dark blue lace dress from the Danish Baum und Pferdgarten. Love it!

That's my feeling too. The navy and white number looks tight, and Mary can wear form fitting dresses with her figure.

I like the rust skirt ( I don't mind lace ) but can't say I like the black jacket with it.

I quite like Mary's latest outfit. One can't go wrong with black and red as a colour combination - the two colours look stylish and chic when put together IMO, and Mary is just that. At first, I wasn't so keen on her skirt but after taking a closer look at it, I rather like it. Having said that, I'm not the biggest fan of her hair style.
