Tea For Two

Dressing for Tea

By Dominique Hanke

There is something so innately romantic about meeting for tea. It always makes me want to dress in my prettiest clothes, or maybe that’s just my Englishness showing. For my tea date with my beau I found myself reaching for the pearls. This was our first ‘date’ since our return from Europe, so I was definitely channeling English Rose meets Parisian chic.

This super cute  cream dress was a bargain that I snapped up from London’s Oxford Street Top Shop. At only £10 I came away feeling super thrifty!



I love this tea cup ring. Its irresistible kitch charm makes it one of my favorite accessories .
