Styling An Afternoon Tea Dress

Styling An Afternoon Tea Dress. The Afternoon Tea Lady.

Hello friends, Happy Saturday. So how are you today? The sun is shining and the sky is a beautiful blue. On my day off, today. Summer is back!! Yippee!!

Did you know it is Afternoon Tea Week?

Afternoon Tea Week is a delightful and cherished annual event that celebrates the timeless British tradition of indulging in a leisurely afternoon tea.

Scones with your afternoon tea? But the big question is, is jam on first or the cream?

So anyway, Afternoon Tea Week takes place from 7th – 13th August 2023. Grab your favourite swing dress and grab a pot of tea.

I love tea, iced lattes, and the occasional glass of wine, but after a hard day of work, I love nothing more than tea and a slice of cake-Unknown.

Love an afternoon tea dress. I sure do have a few different ones to choose from. This is one I bought from a shop on Amazon a couple of years ago. I think they closed down as I don’t see them any more.

You know how much I love my vintage-style swing dresses, don’t you?

This afternoon tea dress creates the feel of a sunny garden with its beautiful colour scheme and complex flower designs, where each bloom appears to have made its way onto the fabric.

The skirt carefully sways with each step, producing an understated dance of movement. Prefect for any afternoon tea, event!

An everyday experience becomes glamorous and magical when you’re dressed in an afternoon tea dress. The soft material gently drapes over the form, radiating sophistication and timelessness.

The waist is tightened. You feel a sense of longing as you put on the dress, thinking back to a time of leisurely get-togethers and sophisticated chats over cups of tea.

Afternoon Tea Week.

This week-long festival honours the art of sipping tea, enjoying scrumptious pastries, and enjoying the company of friends and family during the second week of August.

Also, afternoon tea, which has its roots in 19th-century, has developed into a cherished cultural tradition that cuts across generations and social classes.

Afternoon Tea Week highlights the variety and ingenuity that can be incorporated into an ostensibly straightforward tradition.

From the traditional pairing of finger sandwiches and freshly baked scones decorated with clotted cream and jam to the ever-expanding number of modern twists and flavours.

    I haven’t worn a dress in such a long time that I would have no idea how to style it so this was so useful and interesting. The whole outfit looks so great on you that it’s making me think I could give dresses a go again! I love the overall look of this — fantastic!
