Dressed-to-a-Tea



April 13 - April 19
Dressed-to-a-Tea

Share ideas for dressing up for afternoon tea. Is your favorite tea-time outfit a silk caftan, flannel jammies, or a dress with proper hat and gloves? Do you enjoy wearing tea prints to tea? Or do you prefer something more elegant? Lace and ruffles? A feathered hat? Long pink gloves? Satins and silks? Cotton comfort? Jeans and a t-shirt you say? That's okay --- share it all here.

Pictures of you in tea-time costume are welcome! But, if you are not brave enough to share a picture of 'you', simply share something you think would be FUN to wear to tea. Remember, a tea can be anything from a formal afternoon tea --- to tea in the park with a friend. It's whatever it means to you!

  2. Hello LaTeaDah,
    I'm having so much fun with this blog-a-thon. Thank you for hosting.
    I love the photos you've included for this weeks post. They're all so beautiful! I remember my grandmother and all the darling 50's styles she wore. I think a variation of them is coming back.
    Have a wonderful week,
    Cori G. @ The Pinkie Tea's

  6. what an absolutely lovely site for a tea drinking, home loving, garden loving woman like me! if I were to choose, it would be my eileen fisher cotton black pants(so comfy) and my cashmere sweater with my french soles... jeans are too restricting, dresses are too much trouble although a skirt is another idea....hmmm, now you have me thinking!

  8. Honestly? I love to curl up in my favorite chair, wrapped in my clean warm bathrobe and gown, and sip my tea quietly, in our peaceful home. :)

  11. This week was a challenge for me after seening some of the creative posts of others. I am a gal who wears black pants or Capris with a variety of tops. My girlfriends and I refer to black pants as our "uniform."

    I think it is hard to find a good tearoom. My post whines about that very issue.
