Madeleine and Sofia wear By Malina

Last weekend the Swedish royal family attended the official meeting of the Swedish Academy in the Stockholm Stock Exchange. All three kings-children were there with their spouses.

Madeleine, who is expecting the couples second child, was clad in a green maxi dress from Swedish fashion brand By Malina. This is a re-use from the previous year when Madeleine wore it to a gold jacket. This time she wore a black fur jacket over it, also from By Malina.

Sofia Hellqvist looked stunning in a navy dress from By Malina.

It isn't the first time we've seen the royal ladies wear By Malina and probably not the last. By Malina is a brand founded by Malin Andrén, a Swedish socialite and celebrity. She is Madeleine's acquaintance and Stephanie Bergström's best friend. Stephanie Bergström is Jonas Bergström's wife and Madeleine used to be engaged to Jonas.

Recently new photos of Prince George were released. In it he is sitting down, dressed in navy Corduroy Trousers, White bodysuit and a blue vest with Guard motif. I absolutely fell in love with his vest. Super cute outfit on a super adorable Prince.

The vest is from Cath Kidston and is available sold out on their website. The company has issued a statement saying they are looking into restocking the vest.

Victoria wears Footprint bracelet by Kreuger Jewellery

Victoria's floral skirt

Browsing on Instagram I found a photo on H&M's page of a skirt that I thought I'd seen before. When I did a little more digging I found out it was the skirt we saw Victoria wear the other day to Stockholm Junior Water prize ceremony.

You'll never guess who's shoes Victoria is wearing!

Footprint bracelet by Kreuger Jewellery

Last week Victoria attended Save the Rhino Gala. The event was held at Clarion Post Hotel in Göteborg, Sweden and as the name suggests the event was held to raise awareness and funds in the fight against poaching. Read more about the project here.

Victoria with friends Andrea Engsäll and Caroline Kreuger.
Caroline Kreuger, Victorias good friend, the owner of Kreuger Jewellery has designed a very cool and fashionable bracelet for the project which all the proceeds for go towards saving rhinos and elephants in the fight against poaching. The bracelet is called Footprint and looks like the footprint of a rhino. The bracelet is available for adults and children and is set in silver. If you are interested in helping raising funds or if you simply just want to own this beautiful bracelet they are available here.
The bracelets are called Footprint

Victoria's good friend Andrea Engsäll, got herself a rhino bracelet and said in a blog post that "all the gang has one." Meaning she and her and Victoria's friends all have one and since they are highly influential, trendsetting people in Sweden it wont be long until they trend in Sweden. My prediction is that we will see it on Victoria someday. Not only because she is fashionable but also because of her connection to the project and the fact that her friend designed it.

Updated 24th September: Victoria wore the bracelet to an official event today.

Victoria wears Jean Paul Gaultier Autumn 2014 for Lindex

No surprise here - Victoria wore the navy and white striped shirt from the Jean Paul Gaultier Autumn 2014 collection for Lindex before it arrived in stores. She has done this before - for example we saw her wear the Isabel Marant for H&M collection before it was released in stores.

Did Victoria give her Baum und Pferdgarten dress to Andrea Engsäll?

Andrea Engsäll is a close friend of Princess Victoria. Victoria is even the godmother to her daughter, Diana. In the newest issue of Amelia (swedish magazine) Andrea is wearing what seems to be the same dress Victoria wore earlier this year on her trip to Tanzania. Now I wonder.. did they really buy the same dress or is it a hand-me-down from Victoria? What do you think?

Princess Madeleine's baby carrier

Princess Madeleine took my advice and bought the BabyBjorn baby carrier. It was kind of expected because of the popularity of the BabyBjorn among celebs and the fact that Madeleine travels a lot. To name a few Beyonce, Olivia Wild, David Cameron, Orlando Bloom and Angelina Jolie have a BabyBjorn carrier.

Maxima's kind gesture

Maxima, queen of The Netherlands wore a dress by Natan last weekend. However, this dress is no ordinary Natan dress. It was designed by a girl named Luna (with the help of Edoard Vermeulen) who has been battling leukemia for over two years. It was her wish to design a dress that would be worn by someone famous and Make a Wish foundation and Maxima helped make that wish come true. What a lovely gesture on Queen Maxima's part.
