I’M JUST BACK from one of the most spectacular equestrian events of the year – The Royal Ascot 2019. And even if racing is not my nr 1 cup of equestrian tea, this event serves so much more then the sport. Royal Ascot is equally synonymous with sartorial elegance and is awash with colourful fashions as well as the most magnificent millinery creations and shiny, sparkling, inspiring people. Spectacular heritage, high fashion, Fine Dining and pageantry come together to create such a special atmosphere and experience. (Ah, I’ve always loved the contrasts of my quiet day to day life hanging out with my horses, mixed up with spectacular sparkly events and people. THAT’s totally my cup of tea.)

I’m so grateful to be invited by my absolute favourites LONGINES to stay at the beautiful Four Seasons Hampshire Hotel, (have a look below at the different outfit options stylist David Hawkins played around with. I LOVED them all.) and then enjoying the beautiful day at Ascot Racecourse.

Thank you Longines for supporting the whole equestrian world to keep up the standards, both for horses, riders and spectators! <3
