tea & biscuits at quarter after 4

 dress: little white lies, shoes: zara

I would definitely never describe myself as prim & proper. But something about wearing a  knee length dress and ankle strapped heels made me feel... more posh. And apparently British (well, the stereotyped American version.) I've been to afternoon tea a few times at tea rooms, and I gotta say, I prefer the finger sandwiches and scones and any sort of carbs over tea. I've got my sweet tooth to thank for that.


  1. Aw man, I like tea (with lots of honey/sugar of course)...but I really want to do afternoon tea at The Plaza for my birthday this year...I've never done anything like that before.
    I really like this look, Mili. Love the lighter colored shoes with the dress -- I think the ankle strap and low block heel really adds to the "prim" feel.

  2. You look lovely! Love everything about this look :) Hahah and yes, I agree with you..I'd prefer my carbs over tea anytime haha

  3. That dress looks so cute on you! I love your shoes.

  4. Those shoes are adorable, and I'm totally with you on the carbs vs tea thing.

  5. I've never done afternoon tea, but if I were to ever attend one I'd definitely be the one going back and forth taking finger sandwiches. But that's why they're there for, right?! Besides that, I like this LBD on you. It's absolutely perfect for afternoon tea.

  8. so much love for your shoes!
    and I can't believe how gorgeous you are in a dress
    it's a nice change :)


  9. Wow that dress looks totally marvelous and beautiful on you!! I would love to have it. Haven't heard of the brand before. Need to check it out. Tea room sounds posh. Never been there but I guess I prefer the scones too and some coffee with it :D

  11. I LOVE this dress on so- so dramatic and super chic. The hair is rockin' too, babe!


  12. What a cool, dramatic dress! I like the mix of horizontal and vertical stripes!!
    Sincerely, Sara

  13. I love the dress and the shoes. But, honey, the average British girl dresses in short tight mini dress, vertiginous heels etc....
    I'm not one of those though. :D

    1. Whoops, I meant to say that I felt like I fit into the American stereotype of the "prim & proper" Brit. As you pointed out, that's not a very accurate stereotype lol

  14. Haha, oh yes, you are looking quite posh indeed! Love this pretty dress <3
    And yessss, carbs in general are just lovely ;)
    Sweet tooths unite!
