Ascot. A look at last year to get in the mood!


Ascot is probably my favourite event of the year. I totally love it. It’s an opportunity to get dressed up, have a whole day out with great food and drink, and just generally celebrate our girliness. With my trip to Ascot coming up in just a fews days (oh my god stay calm) I thought that I would post a few photos from last year’s fun and frolics to get me, and anyone else out there that’s going, right in the mood.

 I don’t really need help getting in the mood as I’m ridiculously excited already and have been planning my outfit for, let’s just say, some months. I’m going for a completely different look this year but here, for your enjoyment and amusement (and of course mine too) are a selection of pictures from Ascot 2009. Wooo!


The girlies looking pretty. Love Vik’s red Joseph dress and classic Chanel bag


Lucy looking striking in a zebra print Oasis dress. People thought I was Scottish. I just like tartan


Ah lovely! Vik and Rebecca. What angels


Not quite so angelic. She likes Chanel. But she also likes a good old pint


I just love the fizz. In moderation, as you can see.  Tip: Makes friends with the waiter

Strutting around and posing after placing a bet. Met up with the lovely Caroline in beautiful colours. My
dress is from Rise, clutch from H&M and shoes from Aldo. The tan is from St Tropez. The product not the place


Time to go home before we have too much fun. TAXI

Well, you may have noticed that there isn’t a horse in sight. We do know that it is a day at the races but it really does end up being something quite different. We have a little flutter as duty requires, but really it’s a day for dress up, drink and delight.  Like a huge summer wedding without the Bride or Groom. Fabulous! I can’t wait until Saturday.

What’s your favourite day out? Are you going to Ascot this year? Do you plan your outfits ahead or is it a last minute affair?

Can’t wait to hear from you.
