(Jacket: Whistles, Dress: H&M, Shoes: Nelly, Bag: Vintage, Lipstick: Topshop Mischief)

This is what I wore today for an absolutely incredible afternoon tea at Sketch, London. My mum, brother and I took my nan there for her birthday, and although wasn't your conventional 'plush hotel' tea, was absolutely lovely, the interior was out of this world (almost literally- as Twitter prepared me, the toilets were actual pods a la Gaga!) and the scones were like cakey clouds of goodness! Overall it was an amazing afternoon, and I definitely recommend it! (Thanks Laura, for suggesting it!)

I opted for my (£20!) Whistles tux jacket, which although is a little 80's Spandau Ballet added a little pizazz to a black skater dress and boot combo (and y'no I secretly like channelling Tony Hadley, plus Olivia Palermo has it...) I also wore my new favourite Nelly booties, the Scandinavian equivalent of ASOS- which is certainly worth having a peek at if you haven't (very well priced too!)

I hope you've all been having a lovely weekend, what have you been up to? What are your favourite places in London for afternoon tea?

  14. what lovely photographs! it looks like you had a wonderful day, happy birthday to you nan!

    of course it wasn't intentional (well i don't think so!), but i adore how the bus and person wearing the red coat in the background of your shots really tie in with your lipstick! it all really pops out from the monochrome of your outfit and the london street. i'm not the best at writing so i hope i make sense? :)
