Project Playground Gala

Tonight, Princess Sofia and Prince Carl Philip attended a fundraising Gala for Project Playground. This was the second year for this specific gala in Örnsköldsvik organized by Ulla Sjöström. There was an auction which raised nearly half a million SEK (about 60,000 USD / about 540000 Euro) which will go to supporting Project Playground's many projects in South Africa Townships. Various artists preformed- such as Robin Stjernberg, Linda Brava, Fredric Benedict Nybladh and Waterloo and comedian Per Andersson kept the audience laughing. The full press release can be read here.

Sofia wore a white dress from Reiss (first seen in official photos before the wedding) and carried a clutch from Dagmar. She wore white pumps which I suspect to be the same pair, that has yet to be identified, from Princess Leonore's Baptism. And as always she wore her Project Playground bracelet on her wrist.

What did you think of her look?

Sofia's Outfits in Värmland

Sofia and Carl Philip just finished their visit to Värmland, their Duchy, where we saw 5 different outfits of Sofia's. Check out what she wore!

Day 1:

 When arriving at the train station in Karlstad ahead of their 2 day visit they were greeted by the Governor of Värmland, Kenneth Johansson, and his wife Viola. Sofia wore a brown coat and top from Gant, earrings from Englebert Stockholm, and carried her Longchamp bag. Her black suede heels feature a kitten heel and bow on the toe. The shoes have not been identified. A very comfortable looking outfit for traveling.

After being greeted at the Governor's Residence, Sofia and Carl Philip changed their outfits and went off to Byamossarna Nature Reserve. There they were able to see one of their wedding gifts, a 3.5km long foot trail with a rest shelter. This pathway is named Heritigparets Vandringsled, which loosely translates to Duke Couple's Walking Trail.

For this portion visit, Sofia and Carl Philip wore coats from Stutterheim Raincoats, as it was a bit wet. Her top comes from Sandro and her boots from Tretorn. For earrings and a necklace she chose to wear one of her favorite brands, Drakenberg Sjölin.

After this they visited Marbacka where they visted Selma Lagerlof's house to learn about the first women to win a Nobel Prize in Literature. They were able to meet some of the people as they walked along the streets. 

For this part of the day, Sofia had another outfit change. She changed into a black and white dress from Sandro and a pair of black sandals from Maje. Her necklace comes from Drakenberg Sjölin

For the final part of the day, the Prince Couple attended a dinner held by the Governor at the Governor's Residence. There they met various people from all around Värmland. 

For this reception, Sofia chose a black dress from Zara which she paired with her Kurt Geiger nude Pumps. Her earrings were the big statement piece of the outfit and they come from Pipols Bazaar

Day 2:

On the second day of their visit, Sofia and Carl Philip started the day in Almentorget (Almen Square) in Karlstad where they took a boat to Mariebergsskogen. There they saw a display at Natrurum going by train to a Children's Vegetable Garden. There the head gardner was able to tell them about how they work with various groups of children to learn about gardening. Sofia and Carl Philip were also able to talk with some of the children who have been involved, which resulted in some adorable photos.

After lunch at the beach, they visited Ztorylabs. Ztory offers an "all you can read" service for digital magazines and children's books. After attending celebrations in Karlstad Square, they visited the Consumer Agency to get information about their activities. Following this, they went via guided boat tour to Kristinehamn. They heard the history of Kristinehamn during their trip and at the end were able to meet with children Kristinehamn's Canoe Sailors who told about their activities.
Day 2 only saw one outfit for Sofia, although she did change shoes halfway through the day. She wore a dress from Gant, in the same print as the shirt she wore when arriving the previous day. Her shoes also come from Gant, until she changed into her black bow shoes we saw when she arrived via train the previous day. Her earrings come from Pilgrim (thanks Anna!) and a UFO bracelet featuring a star. She also wore her Stutterheim Raincoat at various parts throughout the day.

With all the outfits, she wore her Project Playground Bracelet.
Which outfit was your favorite?

Victoria in Boomerang

Boomerang posted on their Instagram that Crown Princess Victoria wore their top last Saturday! That is 1 UFO solved! (I am still in the middle of a busy busy week but hopefully this evening it will settle down and I will have the chance to update everything)

Victoria at the Junior Water Prize Ceremony

(As previously mentioned I am readjusting to school life so here is my quick post for the night.)

Mette Marit and Victoria tackle the Climate Walk

This past Saturday, Victoria and Mette Marit joined together to walk part of the climate walk which is headed to Paris in December. I have said many times how Victoria is deeply involved in the climate discussion around Sweden and has an interest in the subject which she shares with her father, the King.

They pair started in Norway and walked across a bridge into Sweden where Mette Marit handed Victoria the "baton", a bottle of water. They finished their time together with a prayer service in Strömstad church.

I have no ID's on either of Victoria's outfits except the shoes and jewelry. Her white sneakers are from Adidas and her ballet flats are TOD's. Her necklace and earrings are from Kreuger Jewellery.

As a side note: I have moved back into school this week so please be patient with me and my postings as I adjust and figure out when I have time to blog.

Victoria in Baum und Pferdgarten

Today Victoria and Daniel had 2 engagements. This morning they visited Södertälje, more specifically SweTox. SweTox is the Swedish Toxicology Sciences Research Center, which once again is an interest of Victoria's that she shares with her father.

Huge thank you to @pelletnilsson for letting me share his beautiful photo! Also check out this gallery from Expressen here.

Victoria wore Yves Saint Laurent pumps with her Ralph Lauren white bag that has become a staple for her lately. She wore her symbols necklace from Sophie by Sophie as well.

Later in the day, the King, Queen, and the Crown Princess Couple attended the gala concert and party celebrating Sverige Radio's 90th Year.
For this gala, Victoria wore a new skirt from Baum und Pfedgarten featuring flowers. She paired it with a black top which she wore last year with a similar skirt from H&M. The top remains UFO but I wonder if it is H&M or Hunkydory. Victoria wore her Ralph Lauren sandals and accessories from Lara Bohinc. Her clutch she has had for a very long time and I suspect it may be YSL but I have never found anything to be completely sure.

Sofia in IRO

Today the newly titled Princess Sofia took on her first solo engagement attending an diploma ceremony for Project Playground and Lugna Gatan in Stockholm. The diplomas were given to the first group of South African youth who were trained in the Lugna Gatan's methodology. Project Playground and Lugna Gatan are working together in Langa, South Africa to help people out of isolation in an area of high crime, and into a positive environment. If you want to read more about these two organizations- check here!

For this engagement, Sofia wore a new top from IRO with black trousers and a pair of heeled sandals from Sofie Bly (seen here). On her wrist she wore a cross bracelet which I suspect to be from Sophie by Sophie and her Project Playground Bracelet.

Victoria and Daniel meet with UN Ambassadors

Today Victoria and Daniel met with 20 UN Ambassadors who are based in New York at the Royal Palace in Stockholm.  These ambassadors are currently in Sweden to discuss the climate change issues before COP21 in Paris in December. As I have written before, Victoria is deeply engaged in climate based discussions, something she shares with her father, King Carl XVI Gustaf.

Now- onto the fashion, since that is what this blog is about. Victoria rewore her Ralph Lauren dress that we first saw on Victoriadagen this year. She paired it with her Yves Saint Laurent sandals that she has had for a few years and carried a red clutch (seen in this APA Gallery). Her earrings look to be an older pair from Charlotte Bonde.

Prince Nicolas wears Pili Carrera!

So recently the court published some lovely photos of Princess Madeleine and her family- including the littlest prince!

I can confirm that Prince Nicolas was indeed wearing Pili Carrera! Here is what I was told-
"Hello Sarah, Yes, this was from the summer collection, and we sold out of them.I was trying to get it (a stock photo) but no luck, only like 70% of our collection has images."
So while we don't have a photo of the little outfit by itself- let us just enjoy the photos of the family!

Slow Summer

Well we are still in a bit of a lull for engagements for the Swedish Royal Family with just about 2 more weeks until they go back to "work". I am still here though and posting new finds on their respective pages. Nothing to exciting to share but I wanted to make sure you all knew I had not abandoned you!
