Unknown shorts

I found these shorts at a multi-brand sample sale years ago with no labels in at all… So I have no idea who they’re by! I love them though. Wearing with my Russell & Bromley slip-ons that I pretty much live in.

I’m trying out the latest Insta-trend – the Back Selfie.

Holiday vibes here – I’m chilling in Mauritius!

Royal Ascot

Had a wonderful day at Royal Ascot yesterday thanks to fabulous hosts Longines! In the end, I decided on the pale pink Jonathan Saunders dress with a beautiful headpiece from Emily-London.

Royal Ascot outfit!

My shortlist of dresses for Royal Ascot in association with Longines — monochrome and bejewelled by Beloved, pale pink by Jonathan Saunders or geometric print by Ginger Fizz from ASOS… aaaaa

Royal Ascot is less than a week away and, thankfully, my outfit is coming together!

Emily-London have lent me this gorgeous headpiece – am thinking of wearing it with a pale pink Beulah dress.

Gladiator sandals – yay or nay?! I’m a fan, anyway. This snakeskin pair is from ASOS. Drawstring shirt dress from Maison Scotch.



I’m going to Ascot with Longines and am, natch, having a massive panic about what to wear.

This is one of the options I’ve come up with so far – ASOS culottes, ASOS top and Zara heels. What do you think?

The shorts the shorts

Cool and comfy – I’m in love with these basketball shorts.

Top: Love Label @ very.co.uk, Shorts: River Island @ ASOS, Heels: Zara. aaaa



I went to sunglasses brand Taylor Morris launch party on Tuesday night and we modelled a few of the new sunnies, natch.



BAFTAs part 2

Now for the hair and make-up. Hair by one of Mark Hill’s team, obviously. I asked for wavy bedhead to go with my fun jumpsuit – I didn’t think an updo or curls would have suited.

MAC did my make-up and also came to the rescue to cover up a huge bikini tan line on my back that I only spotted after putting on my (backless) jumpsuit.

BAFTAs part 1

I went to the BAFTAs on Sunday night but am only updating my blog with it today because I am still recovering - Sunday night drinking, it turns out, isn’t my thing.

Anyway, I had a brilliant time. House of Fraser kindly offered to lend me one of their beautiful sparkly dresses for the occasion but I love this black, wide-legged halterneck jumpsuit… Boring, I know, but sparkle and dresses just aren’t very me!

I’m seriously lusting after these heels. I found this shot on Instagram but can’t for the life of me find out where they’re from… Any ideas, PLEASE tweet me @alexandraklight!shoes

Still winter

I’m aware that it is, if not summer, at least spring, but I’m struggling to get out of my winter stuff because I reaalllyy feel the cold. Promise to get into sandals ASAP.


Got sick of looking at myself in the mirror so tried an overhead shot!
