Tea For Two Look

Pacifica | Oversized Tote Bag 
Flower Locket Pearl Necklace

I have been on a regency period kick! North & South, Jane Eyre, Pride and Prejudice, etc. I've burned through so many stories, I've succumbed to fanfiction! To top off my voracious need for the antics of courting and British culture, I've also gotten into my blood the idea of dressing for dinner and taking tea in the afternoon. Of course, this is where the delightful floral print dress above comes into play. When I saw it in our office I easily painted a picture of a young woman sitting next to a beautiful table with delicate porcelain cups, steeping Earl Grey tea, cucumber sandwiches, orange marmalade, and crumpets. Come to think of it, this outfit would have been perfect for the celebratory event Shelley and I crafted after the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge got married. (Yes, I confess... we're slightly nerdy and over the moon on romance.) 

Cheers to fashion,
Emilie
