It's been a while since I did a style post hasn't it? The last one I posted was this one that featured Cakes. I've actually had it in mind to shoot some looks for the blog, but haven't gotten around to doing them. Anyways, today's post is still in line with the UK Holiday series. And it's specifically from the day we went for Afternoon Tea.
I got the dress from Burlington Coat Factory. At Burlington, you have to comb through the racks, and truthfully it can be overwhelming. I'm just happy I found this dress before I was ready to give up.
One of the things that drew me to the dress was the yellow zipper detail at the shoulders. I actually went for the dress because it was black and white, with an accent color (the pops of yellow).
The original plan was to wear heels to make the outfit smart[er] but ain't nobody walking around London in heels!
I also had my handy cross-body/clutch from H&M as part of the outfit.
For my hair, I decided to do a half updo, with roll-tuck-pins in front.
I also wore a cardigan because it was pretty nippy in England. The cardigan was from Burlington Coat Factory as well. I loved the color and gold details.
I like that the dress was very comfortable and I didn't feel squished and squashed in it. Next time I wear it though, I might add a skinny black belt.
I felt pretty prim and proper in the dress, and it made me sit a little taller. There's nothing like an outfit that makes you feel confident!
What would you wear to Afternoon Tea? Let me know in the comments!
