AFTERNOON TEA AT THE RITZ

Afternoon tea may be my favorite thing about English culture. I mean, who doesn't like warm scones with jam, delicious teas, and cute sandwiches? It's a great excuse to get dolled up while spending time with friends and family!
There are numerous options when it comes to afternoon tea in London, ranging from casual to fancy. Most recently, I enjoyed tea at The Ritz Hotel with Lee. We had a great time stuffing our faces and listening to the pianist.
I bought this dress from H&M 3 years ago and have worn it multiple times, a good investment indeed!


           The Ritz does a fantastic afternoon tea with 16 different teas to choose from and a great spread                            of sandwiches and desserts. Oh, the tea room isn't too shabby either ;)

You're bound to have a wonderful experience at The Ritz's tea. From the moment you arrive, you're treated like royalty and offered the best service. If you're visiting London, this is a must!

Xoxo,
Karen

  2. What a stunning look! I love that dress, it's the perfect amount of feminine but still looks put-together with that blazer and the black tights. I've been finding myself gravitating towards looks like this since I started practicing at a big law firm - I have to look professional for my clients but I still want to look pretty :)

    1. Thank you! It sounds like our jobs are pretty similar in the sense that we need to look professional, but that doesn't me we want to look boring! I definitely try to find a balance between professional and girly :) Thanks for stopping by!!
