As fashion correspondent for Ascot TV, she’s an expert at summer occasion dressing so it’s no wonder we’ve got some serious outfit envy. 

With a sharp eye for period details, Martha’s style signature is a vintage spin on the latest trends. Sporting summer’s hottest trend – denim, the stylish editor paired a dungaree dress with a summery crochet blouse. The simple outfit was made garden party appropriate with embellished court shoes, retro sunglasses and a red manicure. Here’s how to steal her elegant yet contemporary look…
