Mary Takes Texas

Crown Princess Mary of Denmark took a solo trip to Texas this week, hitting stops in Austin and Houston.

Day 1 – Austin – Mary attended a women’s leadership breakfast at “House of Scandinavia”. “House of Scandinavia” is an exhibit at the yearly “South by Southwest” or “SXSW” festival, held each year in Austin. It focuses on tech, film, food, and art. Mary visited the Danish exhibits throughout, made a quick trip to the State Capitol to visit the Governor and his wife, then back to Scandi House to speak at the “Danish Arts in Austin” evening reception.

Her jacket is apparently a new one from Baum und Pferdgarten. In some pictures I like it a lot, and in some I don’t. But considering the event, it got the job done just fine. I really liked the dress worn to see the Governor. I wouldn’t mind having one like it myself, but I could never do it justice. LOL Later that night it was classic black and white.

Day 2 – Houston – She started her day by meeting the Mayor of Houston at City Hall. They did a quick walkabout, then it was inside for for the launch of a cooperative venture between Houston and Denmark in regards to Climate Change. The day wrapped up with an evening gala at the Museum of Fine Arts.

I really, really like the red floral dress Mary is wearing here. New My Royals says it’s from Giambattista Valli, so expect to see it on M-M or Maddie any second now. Her evening gown was a repeated Jesper Høvring. I’m not a huge fan of this design, but it is a nice color for her.

Day 3 – Houston – Mary wrapped up her tour with a few more visits on Wednesday. First stop was the Texas Medical Center, which is “the largest hospital complex in the world”. She spoke during an event highlighting the exploration of life science collaboration opportunities between Texas and Denmark. After that it was off to the CERA Week Conference, where she gave yet another speech, this time on ways to be more energy efficient. And last but not least, she opened the exhibition “Statecraft: Selections from the Jewelry Collection of the Danish Arts Foundation” at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft.

I love this outfit. Every single thing about it.

Whew! What a jam packed schedule. I’m sure she’ll be glad to get home and rest for a day or two after all of that.
