The Swedish Local Heritage Federation (as Sveriges Hembygdsförbunds is loosely translated) looks to educate people on the cultural history of various parts around Sweden. The Local Heritage Weekend, held at Skansen in Stockholm, gives various local heritage societies to come together and show handcrafts, stories, music, theatre, food, costumes, as well as gives visitors a glimpse of what Sweden looked like years ago.

Sofia wore a dress to this event, Rodebjer's Mila Border dress in Sand. Shopbop has the dress left in blue as well. Sofia carried an old black clutch (never been identified) and her black suede heels from Stinaa.J. It is difficult to say what bracelets and earrings she is wearing from the photos I have seen but there appears to be a mixture of chain bracelets on her arm. 

Social Media Saturday

I know we normally post these kinds of posts on Sunday's, but because we will have another post this evening/tomorrow- I decided to post these now.

Madeleine and Chris were seen walking around Stockholm and meeting with friends at Sturehof in Stockholm around August 13th. Sturehof is a restaurant in Stockholm that has long been one of the couples favorites. They have been seen (and photographed) there many times in the past few years and it was the place where Chris met with their friends and family for a party before their wedding.

In these photos, Madeleine can be seen wearing a Valentino 'Rockstud' Convertible Crossbody Bag as well as Valentino Rockstud Cotton Field Jacket

They were also seen just the other day having lunch in Visby, which is a municipality of Gotland- Princess Leonore's Duchy. I imagine they are traveling around Sweden currently as a family. Many of you have probably seen this photo already but I wanted to include it here for those of you who missed it. At the beginning of August, Madeleine (and the kids) were seen enjoying a day in a park in Stockholm.

Later today we should see Sofia and Carl Philip as they attend celebrations for Swedish Local Heritage Association's 100 Years Anniversary.

In these photos, Princess Sofia is wearing a dress from the brand Object (thanks Laura for finding it!). 

I have not been posting much lately due to me being on vacation and then moving back into school and starting 2 jobs so I have been a bit busy but I am ready for the Swedes to get back to work and I'll be ready to write then! The side-pages HAVE been updated with many old finds so go check those out! 

UPDATED: Princess Sofia at Industry Day in Båstad

Today, Princess Sofia attended Industry Day in Båstad as a representative of Project Playground. Industry Day was hosted to mark the beginning of the partnership between Gränslösa Möten and Project Playground, with today's seminars topic being "A Sustainable Tomorrow".

Featured Speakers included Sweden's former Prime Minister, Fredrik Reinfeldt, and John Hope Bryant. Gränslösa Möten became Project Playgrounds newest partner back in June. Their main focus is opening up discussions and partnerships between people and organizations of different backgrounds, ethnicities, social class, and locations. This is something that Project Playground is very interested in considering their work with children who are unaccompanied coming to Sweden and the kids they work with in Cape Town.

Later in the evening there will be a dinner with auction hosted for Project Playground, which I suspect Sofia will attend. There are two paintings that are being auctioned off and both Sofia and Fredrik Reinfeldt added details before it is sold.

UPDATE: I was correct- Princess Sofia did attend the fundraising dinner and auction this evening. The dinner was held at the beautiful Norrvikens Trädgårdar in Båstad. The auction was a great success with a large number of funding being raised to go to help run the programs of Project Playground in both Sweden and in South Africa. Guests were entertained by artists such as Jessica Folcker, Mollie LInden and classical violinist Linda Lampenius. To see photos from the event, you can check out Bjareliv's Gallery here

Princess Sofia wore a new top featuring accordion pleating and elastic waist. The wonderful @HyväHygge found a dress from Hugo Boss in an identical pattern so either this top was custom made for Sofia or she altered the dress- I believe she probably bought the dress and altered it. She wore a pair of black heels likey from StinaaJ- the same ones she wore to Prince Oscar's Te Deum. She wore her Engelbert Diamond Pave Hoop Earrings and a heart bracelet (most likely from Sophie by Sophie), her Horseshoe bracelet from Sophie by Sophie along with her Project Playground bracelet

For the evening's gala, Sofia wore a new Cobalt Blue Jumpsuit from Diane von Furstenberg. She paired this new jumpsuit, which is a new look for her, with some old favorite pieces. She carried a black Balenciaga Envelope Clutch in black and wore her Georg Jensen Dew Drop Earrings with. She wore black heels- mostly likely the same Stinaa.J pair she wore earlier today. Her arms are covered but I suspect she is wearing the same bracelets that she wore in the morning. 

Social Media Sunday

We are back for another addition of Social Media Sunday! I love being able to share little candid moments and photos with you, sadly I have found that I cannot make it a regular post because I cannot control when people post things online, however I do try to make it regular! 

Moving on to this weeks finds, we are first going to go back ton June 19th, the King and Queen's 40th Wedding Anniversary. I came across these two photos posted on Facebook where you can see Estelle, Victoria, Sofia, Tord, Christina, and 2 baby carriages sitting outside of Solliden.

Many of you have read by now that Carl Philip, Sofia and Alexander traveled to Göthenburg to see Project Playground's teams play in the Gothia Tournaments. There they were photographed enjoying the games, as you can see here. Carl Philip also visited Lilla London, a restaurant in the area and was photographed with one of the workers as well as another patron.

That is all I have for this week. The Swedish Family are all on vacation right now (and I am on a mental fashion vacation) so besides any small updates to previous posts or to old fashion, the blog will not have any major postings until the beginning of August! Have a great rest of your month and as always- Thank You for Reading!
